How To Avoid a Stressful Wedding – Focus On What Matters
Why are weddings so stressful?
Having just been married in January 2017, we too have brushed up against the stress-filled amorphous blob that is a wedding. There are a million things to do, expectations to meet and so many things you think you need. Saying it’s overwhelming is cliché and doesn’t quite cover it. With so much to think about, many people wonder how to avoid a stressful wedding. I think that we didn’t succumb to wedding stress for two reasons. First of all, we’re in the industry. For the last seven years, other people’s weddings are what we think about 75% of our waking hours. It’s safe to say we know a few things about weddings. Secondly, and more importantly, we know wholeheartedly that weddings are about people, not stuff.
Susan and Andrew’s Calgary Brunch Wedding at The Lakehouse
Intimate gatherings for weddings are becoming more popular. AND WE LOVE IT. A beautiful location, amazing food, good friends and lots of smiles. Is there anything else needed to celebrate a wedding? Not really. That’s kind of what it’s all about. For couples who want to keep it simple and who want to spend time with loved ones on their wedding day, an intimate wedding is a great option. In our opinion, The Lakehouse on Lake Bonavista in Calgary is the perfect venue and this Calgary brunch wedding is the perfect intimate wedding inspiration.
