I know all the tricks and am happy to share. So if you're in the middle of planning the "most wonderful day of your life", but subconsciously want to ensure that it devolves into a string of terrible memories that will leave a lasting stain on your reputation and family history, read on.
Here is a brief outline of what it takes to create a wedding day that no one will ever forget, no matter how hard they try. To get the full guide from my book Accessory to Marriage, sign up on the left and we'll get you everything you need to get started.
With so many excited people around you pouring out positive energy and well wishes, ruining your own wedding actually takes some effort on your part. Training yourself early on in the process is crucial. Otherwise, you may find yourself halfway through your wedding getting swept up in the merriment of the moment rather than intensifying the drama.
A good supporting cast is essential to every gripping drama. Weddings are no exception. Without the right people around, your day might go down in history as joyous and classy affair where two lovebirds started a life together. How's that going to get you on YouTube?
Leaving a lasting impression on everyone involved in your day is less about what you do and more about how you do it. This is no time for playing small. You're on stage. You have the microphone. This is your time baby!
Please know that I'm in no way advocating negativity or premeditated drama on a wedding day. I agree with most that it just sounds awful. Why go through all of that planning for a wedding and not thoroughly enjoy it? I have asked that same question and noticed that even the worst of the scenarios I've witnessed started out with good intentions.
