Why You Should Say Yes To a Wedding Weekend

So, I’m going to start this post by saying, we love a wedding weekend of celebrations.

We love it!

We’re big fans of creating a whole wedding weekend or wedding week of events.

Now the question I’m sure you have on your mind is… why?

Because the more events you have, the more you have to plan, right? And the more you have to spend!

And who wants to add more on top of their plate (and their budget)?!

Isn’t planning a wedding enough work?

The answer is yes, planning a wedding is definitely enough work as it is. We all know that there is a lot that goes into a wedding.

And yes, adding events will definitely cost more. It doesn’t have to cost a lot more necessarily, but it will cost more.

So I can understand your hesitation.

Adding more work and more money doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. And when you say it like that, no one would say yes.

But trust me when I tell you that it’s worth it.

And here’s why…

It gives you a chance to spend more time with your guests. And it gives your guests a chance to spend more time together as well.

These are the people you love. And they’ve all gathered together, in one place, in this one time.

And let’s be honest, the gathering of this collection of people will likely never happen again. Even if you have kids and other celebrations down the road.

Having this particular group of people, all together, will not happen again.

So, you want to take advantage of that!

And the way to do that is with your wedding weekend.

Because there’s really only so much time at a wedding itself. And you, as the couple, are busy for most of it.

You don’t have the time to really sit down and talk to someone. To have a real conversation.

You’re on a schedule.

And your guests are on that same schedule.

So, your events during that weekend or week, gives both you and your guests more opportunities to be together.

It gives you time to talk, mingle, laugh, and reminisce. It gives you a chance to strengthen relationships and build new ones.

And it gives you a chance to create memories together.

And that’s so special!

Because that’s what matters. Those relationships are what matters.

So, while I know there is extra time, effort and money involved with creating a wedding weekend, it’s well spent.

Because you’re not spending it on stuff, on something trivial.

You’re spending it on your relationships.

You’re spending it on creating this special experience with these special people at this special time.

So, really the extra time and the extra money is being spent on this once in a lifetime moment.

And how can you say no to that?
