Be a Nice Bride: Be Good to Your Fiancé

Remember that handsome man that asked you to be his one-and-only for the rest of forever??  You know, the guy who gave you that ridiculously gorgeous ring you're flaunting all over town??  That same guy who would do anything in the world to make you happy?  Of course you remember....because you love him so much and can't wait to spend the rest of your life making him happy.

Sometimes, it's really easy to get caught up in all the wedding planning and to forget what this whole journey is really about: You're about to marry your best friend and start a brand new life together.  Above all else, THAT is the most important part.

So, how have you been treating that wonderful man of yours since you got engaged?  You didn't treat him badly before the ring {obviously....he proposed, right??} don't treat him badly now!  Here are a few tips to keep yourself grounded and focus a bit more on your relationship with your fiance than the ring or the dress or the big party at the end of this whole thing.

- Have "non-wedding" nights.  Before the ring, all of your conversations didn't revolve around centerpieces and Windsor knots.  Why should they now??  Set aside some time to do things together that don't involve the wedding.  Go to a game, have dinner and see a movie, work out together.  But keep wedding talk OFF the table.  It'll still be there tomorrow.  Tackle it then.  For now, relish in the fact that you have this amazing man in your life.

- Let him have some say in things.  I know they say that you're wedding day is "your" day.  But the truth is....IT'S HIS WEDDING TOO!  Let him choose the music.  Late night snack.  The groomsmen's shoes.  And whether you agree with his choice or not, deal with it.  Choose your battles!

- Be nice about his family/friends.  There are going to be times during the planning process that you will disagree with your fiance's mom or aunt or grandmother.  And that's ok.  You'll have very different views.  And, again, that's ok.  At the end of the day, you and your fiance should be a team.  Hopefully you have already had discussions about his family/your family and the influence they might have on your wedding day.  And hopefully, you've established that you're ON THE SAME TEAM.  At the end of the day, the two of you should have each others backs.  You should do whatever it takes to make sure that you're both happy with the end result.
