7 Essential Secrets To Happily Ever After
Congratulations on your engagement! Such an exciting time! It’s fabulous and wonderful and… a time of change and adjustment, not only for you, the bride and groom to be, but for your parents, inlaws, siblings and friends. The two of you are about to create a new family, and your life, and the lives of those close to you, will change as well.
Now that you’ve said ‘Yes’, there’s a dizzying list of decisions to be made- date and location, wedding party and guestlist, and of course, the budget. And that’s only the beginning. All of these tasks manage to get accomplished, but the real challenge of wedding planning is handling conflict with parents, in laws, family, and friends- essentially anyone on your ‘team’. It’s the people issues that lead to brides threatening to elope because they’ve had enough of the drama and don’t want to deal with Zilla’s.
To make the most of your engagement, sidestep the drama and create fond memories of your wedding, and team, check out the Love Your Wedding Program below:

Congratulations on your marriage! Now that the excitement has died down and the two of you are adjusting to your life together, remember that learning to nurture yourselves and your relationship takes time, and there are predictable challenges that couples face. There’s no need to get stuck and settle for what you don’t want. You both deserve to have a lasting, loving, joyful relationship.
All relationships go through predictable stages. The first stage is the bonding stage, where couples come together and notice everything that they have in common. It’s a period of intense closeness and bliss. The second phase is the ‘we’re different’ stage. This is when you start noticing annoying things about each other that you hadn’t previously been aware of. You also start noticing what you don’t have in common, and this can cause a lot of anxiety for couples-many of whom start to wonder if they made the right decision. The good news is that this is not only normal, it’s essential for couples to be able to express their differences if the relationship is truly going to grow and develop. This is where many couples get stuck. Successfully navigating this stage requires that the couple provide each other with enough safety that they are able to share their true thoughts and feelings, even if they are different from their partners.
This is a challenging phase, but the rewards are great. Most couples seem to need a certain amount of assistance to master this phase.
