It’s important to show people in your life respect. But part of the fun of wedding planning is fulfilling your own wants, needs and dreams. Haven’t you waited long enough? Gone to enough showers, bought enough bridesmaids dresses, danced the electric slide ’til your feet fall off? You ought to be able to make your own choices. However, that doesn’t mean you need to charge around like Mariah Carey with her Rainbow Amex at Tiffany & Co. There are other people involved in this process. You might be using Mom’s Amex, (Rainbow or otherwise) so her feelings figure in. And your spouse-to-be? The guy/girl of your dreams? Remember him/her? Keep in mind that everyone involved in your Big Day deserves a little respect. Being conscious now will make everything easier as your plans develop. So make sure you TCB. Sock it to me!
Be well, and love well.
