What to remember on your wedding day?

So, you are doing all that you can to create the best and most memorable experience for you and your guests at your wedding.  And you are getting caught up in all the details of the event.  But how often do you ask yourself, “What do I want to remember most about the wedding?”

Figuring out what you want to remember most about your own wedding day before it actually happens, helps you, in two different ways.  First, it helps you decide how to manage your time, energy, money and efforts by identifying the bits that are truly meaningful to you.  At the same time, this process will help you realize the opposite – what not to waste your time and energy on.  Second, it gives you time to create plans for they way in which you want to remember your important things.

Your wedding day, as you already know, will be a whirlwind of activity, people, and high emotions — that’s all what you would expect.  But it will be hard to pinpoint that detail, that song, that moment in your wedding ceremony that is what’s most important for you to remember —if you don’t prepare ahead of time.  This is easier to do than you think.

Here’s the secret.  If you want to deeply, authentically remember something, you must deliberately internalize the positive experience into your memory.

How do you do that?  First, notice you’re having a positive experience — when you’re in that precious moment of your ceremony that you really want to remember, notice that it’s occurring right there and then.  Get fully present.  And then, open yourself to the good feelings you’re having, really enjoy the experience as it’s happening.  Finally, be conscious of how this experience is sinking into you, as you sink into it.  Don’t just let the experience happen and move on. Instead, be aware of the experience becoming an event in your life history.  Done.  Your special memory saved in your memory bank. All completed by being fully, fully present.

Will your wedding day be a buzz of activity? You bet. Will your memories can be vivid, fresh, and alive within you forever?  As long as you stay in the moment, and allow for me to capture them all in photos which will pull you back in time so your precious memories never fade.
