You are normal! You want your day to be perfect! After all, you have probably thought about this day for a very long time. When you are caught in the moment of planning your celebrations, EVERYTHING seems important. Everything IS important, but some details are often forgotten. I’m referring to the simple detail of enjoying this life changing event that you are experiencing that day. This is the day you will gain a new identity as a woman. You become a wife and begin a wonderful, exciting new life with the man you are deeply in love with.
All the little details you’ve planned out, may or may not even be noticed or even enjoyed by you and your new spouse. The food you serve may never even touch your lips because you’ll be greeting and accepting all kinds of love and advise from your guests. It’s sad, but true – wedding invitations are soon tossed by the wayside after weddings in Sandy Utah or wherever you have your party. When you hold your gorgeous bridal bouquet, it will feel so heavy by the end of the day, you’ll be glad to toss it! The point is, create beautiful aspects that reflect your style and budget, but don’t burn yourself out deciding which is the “perfect” flower, size, ribbon, etc. If you have a difficult time making choices, ask your maid of honor to help you make those decisions and then move on to the next choice.
The perfection of most consequence will be the perfect feeling of joy and love you’ll experience! This is the gem that you’ll feel, not see!

Depending on your neighborhood, there seem to always be women and men around who are willing to help with anything they can. In my neighborhood, every young woman in the area was given a bridal shower from the neighbors. People helped make food and even served at the wedding celebrations. I had a friend who lost her mother about a year before her wedding. Knowing of her loss and her upcoming big event, a few women showed up at her door and asked how they could help. My friend didn’t even know what she was supposed to be doing, let alone give tasks to others. These women jumped in and kindly helped her get organized and plan her day the way she desired. It soon became a big neighborhood project for this young woman who was so grateful for the love others demonstrated. A couple of women made alterations to her bridal gown. Another checked out the prices for the menu items the bride was wishing for. One spouse of those women is a graphic designer and he designed the invitations to her fancy. Others gathered frames for the couple’s photos to display on the tables at their reception. There are many tasks that many others can do. The bride does NOT have to do it all. A smart bride won’t do it all! My friend not only received much help with her wedding, but she also learned a very important lesson about the human soul. We love to feel needed and helpful.
Therefore, as you begin those steps of planning your wedding, remember that there are many, many people in your life that will be more than willing to help with whatever you need. If you have your event at wedding locations in Utah like Atrium Weddings, you will have the option of self-catering too. This can save money and provide a wonderful opportunity for others to help with your beautiful wedding day.
The pictures of your wedding day at Atrium Weddings in Utah, will become priceless treasures, so be sure you have a good wedding photographer to capture all the sweet moments of the day. Find someone you know and can trust to take fabulous photos of those priceless moments. This person could be a family member or friend or a professional photographer. Make sure they are experienced and that you like their style of photography. Look around and ask for referrals from others who loved their photographer. In my opinion, it is better to go with someone you know and trust than a complete stranger. We had a wonderful photographer who just happened to be my uncle, however, some friends of mine were not so fortunate.
My friends had won a photography package from a bridal fair and they were so excited because that was one less thing they had to pay for. They ended up really loving the person who took their engagement photos, but that was not the same person who showed up on their wedding day. The second photographer was not so great. First of all he showed up about thirty minutes late, and second, he acted like this was the first wedding he had ever taken pictures for. He seemed a little overwhelmed with the whole ordeal. My friends ended up having to tell him the shots they would like, almost having to direct each poise. This was very frustrating for them, especially when they were just expecting to smile and let the professional direct them on what to do. Many of the pictures that day did not turn out. It was a “free” disaster. Luckily when they told the owner of the company that they were not pleased, they were able to have another session with another photographer a couple of weeks later. Although they wished the pictures were taken right the first time, they did have fun dressing up in their wedding attire again.
To avoid a photographer disaster, make sure you find a reputable photographer you know you can trust. If you have having a difficult time finding the right photographer for you, Western Gardens’ Atrium Weddings can provide a few wonderful suggestions of photographers that have worked their wedding reception venue. They also have sample photo books of their favorite photographers that you can browse.
