Be Stubborn (It Could Save your Wedding Day)
I bet your mom always told you to stop being so stubborn when you were growing up. Mine did. A LOT. But what if I told you that you could be both stubborn and happy, AND make everyone else happy too! In fact, it could just keep your wedding from being a fail.
Her wedding day has finally arrived and it’s raining. Hard. Her plan of having an outdoor ceremony in front of the pond at the Winery is looking grim. The yard where the guests are supposed to be sitting is a giant puddle. A giant puddle still covered by buildings materials that the winery had promised to move days ago, but hasn’t.
The way I see it, there are two options on how you can react to this situation.
Give up. Have your wedding in the ugly giant white tent and live a life full of regrets. (This is what non-stubborn people would do).
Insist. Keep asking for what you want. Have a groomsman talk to the owners and make them move their junk from where they promised you could have your ceremony.
Wait just 5 more minutes. Five minutes until your scheduled ceremony time when the rain ACTUALLY stops. Then have your groomsmen and guests make quick work or bringing up all the chairs and the handmade arbour.
Remember: Keep hoping. Enjoy each moment with family and friends and don’t let the setbacks spoil your day.
Being stubborn does not mean that you have to be mean to your entourage, or yell, or stamp your feet. But you can hold your ground and let others know “I really want this, it is important to me”.
With a positive attitude, lots of laughter and happy tears, you will enjoy your day to it’s fullest and so will all your guests.In the end, you’re marrying your best friend, and that makes any wedding day the best day.
