I never gave wedding planning much thought until I had to plan my own ceremony. When I started the process I thought it would be like putting together any other large party but this was not the case — not at all. With a wedding comes tradition, expectations, and pressure. Initially, I wanted a simple wedding with a classic dress but soon I was overwhelmed.
The food, the flowers, the wording of the invitations, a now custom designed dress, each detail quickly becoming a source of debate and potential disagreement between my partner and I.
