Wedding Planning Tips:
1. Don't let your wedding planning become a burden.
Celebrating your love is the essential part of your wedding day. Rely on good wedding professionals,
the help of loving friends and family, faith in the universe, and trust in each other to help you.
2. Know what's most important to you for your wedding.
If you concentrate on what is most important to you in expressing your love for each other and
let go of the rest, you will let go of the stress that goes with it.
3. Speak your truth with love.
Weddings have emotional impact for family members, too. Claiming your vision for your wedding day while
recognizing and honoring the hopes and desires of your family and friends requires loving conversations that
are also part of the wedding process. Rev. Robin Renteria can help you with this.
4. Ask for help.
Choose a friend whose gift to you will be handling all the last minute details on your wedding day. They'll love it and so will you.
5. Your wedding ceremony is ritual, not performance.
Your day will be full of those rare spontaneous moments that make the best memories. Let go of perfection. Have fun.
6. Have a ceremony that honors your past, looks to your future, and celebrates your now.
Your love, and your marriage, will always be a work in progress, uniquely yours. Let your wedding ceremony recognize the power
and the passion of your journey and form a firm foundation for your marriage. Frame your vows and put them in a prominent
place in your home. There will be times when they will bring you back to the love you share on your wedding day.
