When a guy proposes, the girl gets surprised and cries then finally says yes. This happens in all proposals, right? After informing close family and friends, everyone will be asking, “When is the wedding?” Wedding preparations start even when the wedding is a year or 2 away.
There are brides-to-be who have waited for this moment all their lives, while there are those who dread it. Yes, there are brides-to-be who are afraid of weddings. Not marriage, they can’t wait to be the perfect wife, if only they could skip the wedding part.
Of mothers and mothers-in-law
If you are the only girl in a family, or the first born girl in a family, your mother has been waiting for this day ever since the doctor confirmed it is a baby girl. It is worse if your fiancés mother had been looking forward to her well mannered son (all men are well mannered according to their mother) to marry a decent young lady. They will ask for a huge wedding, and invite everyone they know.
Your mother will drag you along to get the perfect wedding dress; your future mother-in-law will push to make sure the wedding venue will accommodate all the guests she has on her list. For a bride who hates weddings, this is a nightmare.
Why you don’t like weddings
Such brides-to-be don’t like weddings due to the many people involved, they don’t like attention. They would prefer to walk down the aisle in their flats not heels, have one bridesmaid who will be the maid of honour. They would like a simple wedding gown with no desire to look like Kate Middleton at all, and would very much like if the groom didn’t have to wear a suit, or worse, a dark suit. There is so much pressure for the day to turn out to be perfect. They would prefer to sign the civil papers and call it a day or better, elope.
How to cope with weddings
If you are such a bride and has no option to but to hold a big wedding for the sake of your family and friends, the development in the service industry was made just for you. You can get someone to do all the tasking work for you. Wedding planners get a description of how you want the wedding to be, and a budget, and then they do their magic.
Another solution is destination weddings, where they provide a full wedding package and they take care of every detail. They plan your whole wedding and host it. No mess, no cleanups, all you have to do is write a check, one check as they act as your wedding planners.
