“Nobody has ever measured, even poets, how much a heart can hold.”
Getting married is a wonderful ceremony of two promising to be each other’s one and only for the rest of their lives. It is a beautiful time in one’s life and it is most certainly a time to be remembered forever. Weddings can be big or small, cheap or expensive, but one thing’s for certain, it should always be special!
Before getting married, however, comes the celebration of the engagement, whether it is just the couple celebrating together over a dinner, or an engagement party consisting of friends or family coming together to spend that time with the soon-to-be newly-weds. Whether you choose to have a small or big celebration, it is entirely up to the couple, as it is your one time to be ‘selfish’. Many people will offer some sort of advice, solicited or un-solicited, about how you should celebrate getting married. It’s not to say that you will not receive good advice, but you need to filter out everyone’s expectations and preferences, because it is not their day!
An important aspect to consider is stress and pressure of wedding and party planning. If you are under a lot of financial pressure or extremely time-limited to throw a party then rather stick to celebrating as a couple and having the big celebration that is your wedding day. It does not help to throw a party if it is going to put you in a position to worry all the time, while others are enjoying themselves. You need to remember as a couple what the celebration is about, and that should be enough to celebrate in a small way if that’s all you can afford. You do not have to impress others with pulling off some amazing event, because the people that really care about you two, will not care about how big of a celebration you have, they will be excited to spend the time with you!
“A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.”
