Does perfectionism deserve an invitation to your wedding?

"What's you're biggest weakness?" the person interviewing me would ask. "I'm a perfectionist" came my reply. Let's face it, it's the text book answer to a question like that. 

I never really thought about it; I was always dedicated to my work in teaching, put so much time and effort into planning and making resources that the kids would love and respond to and then continued that level of diligence with my work now.

But it's soul destroying. Exhausting too...I've watched my shiny perfectionist badge tarnish as I've realised that the level of perfectionism I've held in my work has massively crept in to (or perhaps has always been a part of) every day life.

For what it's worth...how to prioritise your budget and get what you really want for your big day

Weddings are expensive. No doubt about it! If you're planning a wedding, setting a budget and sticking to it can take some work, especially if, like me, you have no idea how much some things actually cost in the first place. I remember buying wedding magazines and they'd often have information to help give you an idea of cost for the essentials just to feel completely overwhelmed with the costs that were racking up in my head. You too?

So how do you decide where to splurge and where to save? There's no one size fits all answer to that I'm afraid to report but I decided to put this post together to help you think about what matters most for you as a couple and to shed some light on why things cost what they do and again, there's not a one size fits all approach there too but hopefully it gives you an insight into where your money is best spent!
