As a bride you're bound to get frustrated. Possibly by anyone and everyone. From event professionals, to friends, family and even your fiance, people may get on your last nerve. So what's a bride to do? Well for starters I would say she should vent... Then quickly do whatever will bring the highest level of success in resolving the conflict. This could be confronting the person, accepting the situation as it is or mentally giving them a Mr. Monkey. But MOST IMPORTANTLY once you've dealt with it, you really need to move on. You've done all that you can. Don't dwell on it and harbor thoughts of negativity. They'll only cause more problems and suck the fun out of everything else you do.
Flirty Brides Don't Stay Mad
I should know. Even though I was a Flirty Bride? My own wedding was not without angst and drama. Disappointment, hurt feelings, many things occurred that had I allowed them to weigh on my mind? Could have ruined my wedding planning process and even my wedding day. But I refused to let that happen and simply moved on. When planning didn't go our way? We chose the next best option. We didn't dwell on "How we wanted things to be" or "What could have been" we just accepted the best solution available to us and didn't look back.
And guess what? We had a great wedding day. It was nothing but fun for both our guests and ourselves. No second thoughts. No regrets.
Here's some life advice that goes beyond weddings: Sometimes we may think it's ok to hang onto negativity because we think nobody will notice. But the truth is? Most often they do. Or we try to pass it off as humor. To some it might be funny, but others may see right through the facade. IMO venting and griping in general are separated by a very thin line. To me venting is what you do in the heat of the moment shortly after something that bothers you has happened. That's natural and a good way to get it out of your system so that you can move on. Griping and grudge holding, those are the two you have to watch out for. They're the ones that attract more negativity and may cause people to want to shy away from or avoid you.
It's been proven that if you think happy thoughts you'll be a happier person. So think positive! Dwelling on the negatives won't change anything. They'll just ruin your day.
