Vow to Wow in 2012
As the year is coming to its end, many brides are looking ahead to 2012 as the year they’ll be married. It’s a year you’ll remember forever—not only for your wedding but for all the memorable events leading up to it. Vow to make this upcoming year your best in planning for the big day by staying healthy, getting organized and focusing on the important things in life and in love. To help you get started, we’ve come up with three resolutions for you to remember in the new year. Cheers to 2012—a year of best wishes, well-being and wonderful weddings throughout Hampton Roads!
1. Get organized. If you haven’t already, buy or make a wedding planner to keep all important documents, notes and ideas you have for the wedding. This will come in especially handy when it’s time to pick out your dress, choose your vendors and keep track of receipts and invoices. Make a list of tasks that you want to get accomplished this week, this month and the months ahead, and try to stick to them without procrastinating.
2. Get fit—the healthy way. You’ll want to get in shape this year more than ever to look stunning in your photos and feel confident as you make your way down the aisle. However, this doesn’t mean crash dieting and insane workout routines. Aside from being extremely harmful to your health, these “get skinny quick” habits can make you irritable and even more stressed. Save yourself (and those around you) the cranky moods by setting reasonable goals and sticking to them.
Get real. This is a momentous year for you and your hubby-to-be. While your thoughts and plans are revolving around the wedding, that doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone else’s are. Remember that everyone has their own occasions and life happenings. When chatting with one of your bridesmaids about your new ideas for the seating chart, take time to ask what’s new in her life. This also goes for you and you guy. Make a goal to have at least one dinner conversation a week without mentioning anything wedding-related. It’s important to stay on task but more important to stay in touch with one another’s lives.
