With your guest list for your Gulf Shores wedding growing ever larger be prepared to only have 2/3 of your guests make it. There will be several reasons why the 1/3 your guests cannot make it. Some of these reasons are they simply can’t take the time off from work. You have to accept the fact that some people have jobs that are not flexible. Some people may be in school. And some people may not be able to afford it and still have the vacation that they want to take later with their children. Above all don’t take it personal. This is a destination wedding so some people will not be able to afford it or have time. Another thing to think about is your bridal party. One bride had 13 bridesmaids, two junior brides, three flower girls, three miniature grooms, 13 groomsmen and a ring bearer. That’s over 30 people in the wedding party. As the day of the wedding to near the bride became overwhelmingly stressed because of all the people. Don’t let this happen to you. If you prepare now and keep it simple you will be happier in the long run. You won’t have to worry as having a large wedding party which can be distracting. People will have problems focusing on the bride with a large wedding party. If you are flexible in the beginning and go with the flow. Remember the most important thing is you are getting married on the beach in Alabama. It really doesn’t get any better than that. Be good to yourself on your wedding day. Get a massage and manicure. Enjoy the beach and watch the waves. By doing all the simple things you will be stress free when it’s time to walk down to that person you love the most.
