Smart Wedding Planning for Financial Freedom

Life is full of changes, and many of which are unavoidable as well as unpredictable. The art of living well is the ability to adapt yourself to these changes in order to make the best and the most out of what you have. Getting married is one of those important changes in life. Planning a wedding is a big challenge, as well as a learning experience, for the couple, especially if they would like to have a dream wedding with financial freedom. The art of living well is the wisdom of smart planning for financial freedom.

What is financial freedom?

Financial freedom begins with financial wisdom, which is an understanding of the meaning of money and its unique relationship with you. Everybody has different perceptions of money, and your unique relationship with money is what really matters to you. Financial wisdom is utilizing your financial resources not just to accumulate wealth but to enjoy what you have. Money is a means to an end, and not an end in itself. Financial wisdom gives you not only more freedom in terms of financial options but also greater protection in difficult economic times. Financial wisdom is to know the true values of money in your life, and thus to make important financial decisions accordingly, including those in smart wedding planning.

Many people simply know that money can buy the things they want, but they may not know that financial stress can cause mental and emotional problems in a love relationship, especially in a marriage. Therefore, smart wedding planning for financial freedom is important in creating a resourceful wedding.

Beach Wedding Planning Checklist

Will you be saying your "I dos" on a beach this summer or for a winter destination wedding? Make sure that you do not overlook any of the important details which are unique to beach weddings. Get prepared with this beach wedding planning checklist.

With the bright sun and humid air, the beach can tend to be a sweaty place. To be certain that your bridal glow comes from your internal joy, not a sheen of perspiration, shop for the right kind of makeup. Light oil-free products will help to give you flawless skin and will withstand a hot day. Avoid heavy foundation that will melt in the heat. You should also choose sheer foundation with sunscreen to avoid getting burned. And as every bride knows, water-proof mascara is a must! Work with your hairstylist to select anti-frizz products that will keep your hair looking neat no matter the weather.

Wedding Planning - Hair Styles

When it comes to your hair on your wedding day it has to be right. Hair can make a big difference to how you feel, whether it's touching up those roots, glamming it up for a night out or simply your day to day style. Being neatly groomed makes you look and feel good about yourself, and this is exactly how you should feel on your special day. Before the wedding you should aim to have at least one or two hair trials so your hairdresser knows what they are working with, and you know you're getting something you will love.

When considering how you are going to be wearing your hair you should think about the style of your wedding dress and any accessories that will be worn on your head or in your hair to ensure they work well together. You should take these accessories to your practice sessions.
