Scott Porter and Kelsey Mayfield said ‘I do’ on April 20 in Austin Texas. According to UsMagazine.com, the couple selected Austin for their wedding destination because that’s where their love story began. “We wanted to get married under a Texas sky, and it’s going to be kind of a rustic chic wedding — that’s the term she throws around,” Porter explains. “She’s got the whole thing in her head and I trust her explicitly.”
What are some ways to compromise on wedding details?
You and your fiancé have been dreaming up the perfect wedding. Now that it’s time to get the ball rolling, you realize you don’t see eye to eye on every detail. Cupid’s here to help you compromise plans for the big day.
1. Pick your battles: Your soon-to-be husband wants to have a live band, opposed to a DJ at your wedding and you think it might be a little tacky. Your love seems so committed to the idea and really seems to want it for the wedding. If you don’t have a deep concern over an issue, let your partner have his way. It clearly means a lot to him. In return, he will let you have your way with other disputes you may come across while planning.
2. Try new things: Your love wants to invite his friends from college that you never met before to the wedding. At first you are horrified by the idea of having strangers at your wedding. Think it through–these people are probably important to your man and should be there for his special day. Perhaps get to know them before the wedding.
3. Ask other’s opinions: If you and your fiancé are in a huge argument over the color scheme of your wedding ask other’s opinions. Go to your mom and his mom–to make it fair–and see what they think. A fresh perspective may be all you two need in this situation.
