“What My Marriage Counselor Never Told Me”

And now, a soapbox moment from your friendly neighborhood wedding coordinator 🙂

As we plan, prepare and coordinate the important aspects of our wedding day in the months leading up to the big day, I think it’s also super important to focus on the meaning behind the day:  THE ACTUAL MARRIAGE.   The wedding is one day, and while for most of us it will be one of the best days of our lives, we need to remember that there are a lifetime of days to follow.  So as we focus on the plans for the wedding (the dress, the flowers, the venue, the bling!!), we should also take a moment to focus on the plans for the partnership that we are cementing on that day.   

For those of you who are religious, I know that many priests, rabbis and other clergy will gladly (or in some cases this is actually mandatory) offer up pre-marital counseling for an engaged couple…..this is a great option if you have access to someone like this.  For those that don’t, I’ve stumbled upon a quick 2-hour (painless!) seminar that will at the very least give you a jump-start into the type of conversations and dialogue that should be happening before the big day.  It is called “What My Marriage Counselor Never Told Me,” and it is being offered THIS SATURDAY, at 11am at the LAX Renaissance Hotel.  Tickets are $15 a person, or $25 a couple, which is a mere drop in the bucket when you consider the potential benefits it has to a soon-to-be-wed couple.

I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to the seminar leader, Ashida Onrae, on many occasions, and she is one dynamic and passionate lady.    I can say with certainty that you will not be bored, and will hopefully even learn something about yourselves or your partner.  You can purchase tickets and find more information on Ashida’s site: http://www.ashidaonrae.com

Here is to the happily ever after…..and forever!!
