New Year, New You Right?

Running up to the new year personally I start to reflect on things, looking at what went right and what went wrong.  I start to set new aims for myself and begin to feel revived. This is even more true for you guys, who are now on the road to saying those two massive words 'I do!'  So, here are my top resolutions for brides and grooms to be, based on my last ten years in the business of being a wedding photographer and my own personal aims and dreams this year.

This year I will...

Not lose weight, but get in shape ready for my big  day.  Honestly, don't kill yourself trying to get into a particular dress size or down to a particular weight.  Don't buy into that game. The best thing is to forget all that and concentrate on being fit and healthy. So eat better, sleep more and get off you bum a little more too!! Forget about that weight or that bit you don't like, your other half obviously loves you because they are  about to say I do too!!

This year I will...

Live in the moment rather than the future.

Yeah sure you have the biggest day of your life coming up, but don't worry about it.  No, I am serious, really don't worry about it.  We worry all the time and it is such a waste of your energy. Nothing is ever solved or made better from worrying.  Please remember why you are doing this and enjoy your time with your other half.  That really is far more important than if you mums dress is going to clash with your colour scheme.  (believe me my mums so clashed with my sisters and none cared - bless her)

This year I will...

Not use Facebook, twitter and instagram as my personal wedding journal. Use groups such as The White Room or start a blog instead.  Your friends and family love you, but possibly don't want to only hear wedding, wedding ,wedding from your for the next.... many months.  I mean why spoil all the surprises..

Not feel pressured to get creative (unless I am) in which case make something or everything to decorate your wedding venue.  Making things can be very relaxing and actually take your mind off the big day even while you are preparing for it.  If you are really not creative, rope in your family or a couple of friends to help, while you make the coffee or pour the wine.

and that leads me perfectly on to...

This year I will...

Learn to delegate.  I mentioned earlier that your friends and family love you right, so what would make them happy and take some pressure off you?  Yup you got it.  Get them involved let them help out.  If they have a certain skill utilise it.  We all love helping others it makes us feel good about ourselves.

This year I will... 

Not be a bridezilla. AKA bit of a nutter.  I have yet to meet a bridezilla and I think that the term comes when you are getting stressed out and none understands the pressure you have put yourself on to make this fairy tale perfect day.  Believe me nothing is ever perfect but the imperfections are actually the bits that make it so fantastic.  So keep those frustrations and chuck them in the bin.  Your partner is marrying you not the crazy lady and your mum just wants what is best for you.

This year I will...

Relax and employ my sense of humour even if it feels like the sky is about to cave in.  It's time for a bit of positive mental attitude and a half glass full approach.  Don't get bogged down in the details if you forgot something you probably didn't need it in the first place.  You don't have to have anything you have seen in the glossy mags, you don't have to compete with anyone else, you just have to start your new journey into a positive and bright future. And remember....

This year I will....be MARRIED!!!
