Like so many brides, I’m out of my element when it comes to so many things wedding. Flowers? Hair & makeup? Dresses? Not so much. So we learn as we go. Sometimes, you’ll find something that turns out to be totally your jam, and develop a new interest.
Money is one of the places I really notice my ignorance—I don’t want to spend more than I need, but that doesn’t mean I want to skimp. You either guess, throw money at it or research obsessively (guess which one I am).
But the other place where we can really botch things is with timing. Not knowing about things means we also don’t always know what the timeline to handle them is. With a long engagement, I sometimes have a false sense of security about how much time I have left to get things done and when I have to do them. I relied on checklists, but they have steered me wrong in a couple places (and I made my own mistakes, too).
