As a Bride-to-Be, your WHY is the most important foundational piece to planning a calm, radiant and beautiful wedding experience. Your WHY lives in your heart-space –where our deepest motivations come from– and everything you do in your wedding planning process will be guided by it. Knowing your WHY helps you stay Blissful and not sweat the small stuff, all the way from “Yes” to “I Do.”
Below is an exercise I created and share with my private clients to support them in feeling like a truly blissful bride in moments of stress. I hope you will take some time to complete this exercise!
Take a moment (10-15 minutes) and consider your WHY in the space below. Please note, this does not need to be perfect! Don’t worry about grammar, wording, or spelling — just focus on your feelings and write whatever comes up.
Your WHY is a compilation of:
- how you FEEL,
- what you THINK (about your partner, your relationship and what led you here)
- and your hopes and dreams for the future.
Now that you have your WHY, I want you to keep this in a safe place so that you can refer back to it whenever you need this important reminder. And, as you go forward in planning your wedding, whenever you are feeling stressed, pull this out and remember WHY you are getting married!
As always, I’d love to hear from you – what was your biggest takeaway from today’s exercise? Leave me a comment over on my blog letting me know… and also feel free to share your WHY in the comments below!
PS: Now that you’ve nailed down your WHY, it’s time to start thinking about your wedding vows. Do you want to write or choose heartfelt vows that come from an authentic and meaningful place? Then be sure to check out my Before Your Vows Kit, which will will help you do just that!
