Wedding plans for Glee star Naya Rivera and Big Sean seem to be going very smoothly. “At the end of the day, he knows ‘happy wife, happy life!’ Rivera told People. “So, he’s kind of like, ‘Whatever you want, babe!'”
What are some ways to compromise with your partner about wedding plans?
Your big day is slowly approaching, but there are still so many details left untouched. You and your significant other can’t seem to agree on much these days and it’s not from lack of trying. Don’t worry, Cupid is here to help:
1. Share ideas: Let your significant other what you have in mind for your wedding and vice versa. Once all ideas are out on the table, try to find a way to combine the two to make something new and unique. If mixing plans isn’t what you’re looking for, maybe the two of you can think about what you’re willing to give up. For example, your partner might want fresh flowers, while you could settle for artificial.
2. What’s important: When you and your partner end up in an argument about the details of the wedding, think about what’s really important. At the end of the day, the marriage you have with your significant other is what counts not the wedding. Yes, you still want to be able to look back and have fond memories of your reception and ceremony, but do you really think 10 years from now you’ll still be upset over what flavor your wedding cake was?
3. Keep an open mind: You might not be a fan of your honey’s ideas for the reception and ceremony, but keep in mind that it’s their wedding too. When your family and friends come to your wedding, they should be able to recognize the elements you incorporated and what your partner chose as well.
