Wedding planning can be tough- the opinions, the pressure, the money. But we do it because it’s also magical- the ritual, the dancing, the dress. In many ways the journey from engagement to wedding day is rocky for good reason. It’s a great precursor to the types of challenges that lie ahead in our marriages. […]
