You're right, that doesn't sound easy at all. But it can be.
If you're a bride-to-be, now or five years from now, don't take the holidays for granted and just remember:
- New family means more love. They may be crazy, different and quirky but they're YOUR family now, so embrace the crazy and remember how lucky you are to have more people on your side.
- The holidays aren't about gifts so don't let a tighter budget because of wedding planning make you a Scrooge! Giving gifts with meaning are more important than anything a whole bunch of money can buy. And the people you are buying gifts for are the ones who will understand the most that you need to be more conservative during this time!
- All the treats and deliciousness don't have to be a challenge, even when you have a dress to fit in to (trust me, that's saying a lot coming from me). Let yourself indulge a little. Keyword –- a little! It will go a long way and you'll still be on track for the big day. My family had nachos for Thanksgiving and believe me, I indulged…a little.
