Consideration, Communication, Compromise
Weddings have become big business. Brides and grooms tend to be older and already established in their careers. Parents, especially the mother of the bride, do not dictate every detail nor do they foot the entire bill. And today’s guest list includes business associates along with family and friends.
It’s your day but you should take great care in planning the event. If the wedding takes place on the beach, it might be difficult getting your grandmother’s wheelchair across the sand. Consider your guests. Consider the time and expense involved with your marriage ceremony and reception not only for yourselves, the bridal couple, but also for your attendants, family members and friends. Keep the lines open for communication and know compromises may be needed for various decisions.
