Change The Way You See Yourself EskraPlasticSurgery.com 919-587-4400 Breast Enhancement Tummy Tucks • and more! 97DCT0117J© Sunday, January 29, 2017 Goldsboro News-Argus — 20 Wedding planning can be intense and often requires dedication and many hours of work. Coordinating a wedding often requires that couples make many different decisions and spend a considerable amount of time in the wedding-planning trenches. Couples expend so much energy planning their weddings that it can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture — namely the relationship that is the basis for the marriage in the first place. But as easy as it can be to get lost in wedding planning, couples can use this time together to connect on a deeper level and learn to work cooper- atively. • DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Separate wedding planning duties so that both of you feel you are con- tributing equally and no one person gets overly stressed out. Stress can lead to short tempers and arguments. • ESTABLISH A MUTUAL BUDGET. Even the healthiest couple argues over finances from time to time, but budgetary debates should not set a negative tone for wedding planning. Cou- ples should discuss their potential budget before they even begin to plan their weddings, and both partners should do their best to compromise while also under- standing where the other person is coming from. • SCHEDULE TIME FOR FUN. Do not let wedding planning be all- consuming. Schedule days that allow you to enjoy yourselves together with- out having to think about or discuss your pending nuptials. 4is may include date nights that may have fall- en by the wayside since getting engaged or periodic day trips to get away from it all. Explore your mutual hobbies or try something new. • LEARN TO LAUGH AT THE LITTLE THINGS. Not every detail will go off without a hitch. How you react as a couple may influence how much you enjoy your wedding. Rec- ognize that certain things will not go your way, but that unforeseen circum- stances will not ruin your wedding day, no matter how unpleasant they may seem. Laugh at what cannot be changed and recognize that, in the long run, the details you think are major today may actually prove trivial when you look back on your wedding day in the years to come.
