Aren’t weddings awesome?
Maybe for the people getting married… But is it really so?
Even though its planning can be stressful, it is one the most important days for the couples, when they commit to one another in front of their families and friends.
Planning a wedding is one heck of a task.
So many things to do: setting a budget, buying the ultimate dreamy wedding gown, finding the perfect venue, hiring a photographer, making a list of guests, bridesmaids’ dresses, the right flowers and so on.
Besides a lot of time and some sleepless nights, and all of this on average costs $26.720.
It is a very significant moment that requires the ultimate organization and planning.
Planning to perfection, so that couples can have the flawless dreamy wedding they always wanted to have.
Getting married to the person you love the most, your soulmate is almost everyone’s desire.
However, not always everything is as it seems. Sometimes the love lasts, and sometimes it doesn’t.
People constantly ask the wedding planners if and how do they know whether the marriage won’t last for long.
They have dealt with plenty customers and they are able to notice the signs and tell whether the marriage would last or not.
Some of the indications are obvious but some of them are rather subtle to the untrained eye.
Five wedding planners have disclosed major signs which indicate that a marriage won’t last.
Take a look at those major signs, courtesy of Auntyacid, and hope that you won’t notice any of them at the weeding your colleagues or friends. Or yours!
1. One too many drinks
Well, having fun at the beginning of the party is something else, but over-drinking before the wedding day could be a sign that the soon-to-be-married either isn’t ready for the next chapter of their life or they are worried they have chosen the wrong person. And, that my friend is something!
Kayla McCaul, a wedding planner based in Oregon, reveals that if the bride or groom are continuously drinking, one glass after another, could be a big warning sign.
“Pacing yourself on your wedding is key, but if you find yourself or your partner throwing back the cocktails before the ceremony begins, you may want to ask yourself, what is happening here?”
It can be either that, or they suddenly have a drinking problem, but what are the odds?
2. A bit embarrassing
To be embarrassed by your partner on the most important day of your lives is pretty unacceptable.
MexicanAlemundo, a Reddit user wrote about an awkward moment she witnessed at a wedding.
“The guest count was roughly 100, but this cake could’ve easily served close to 300. There was Chinese lettering/design on the cake…it was apparent the groom had no idea what cake they were getting…
“The bride points out three of the symbols on the cake, which were the largest. She said that they mean ‘Obey, Listen and Loyalty.’ She said she expected these three traits from her husband at all times.
“She said it not in a joking way. Room was silent the whole time the cake was being served.”
3. An unhappy partner
A planner at Weddings and Events by Emily, Emily Reno, reveals the third warning sign.
“I once worked with one couple where the bride was a vegetarian. But the groom refused to order any vegetarian entrees because there were only a handful of guests who would eat them.”
Sometimes people could really tell if you love your partner or not. You can’t hide the love; it can be seen from space.
If your soon-to-be-spouse can’t make you happy and joyful on your wedding day, how can they do so your entire life?
4. A bad reception
A Reddit user, AnaphylacticHippo, shares the last warning signal.
Having an ex on your wedding day is definitely not the best case scenario, especially if you can feel like there is definitely something off.
“The worst I’ve personally witnessed had a groom’s baby mama (and ex-fiance) come to the reception uninvited. She grabbed the wedding cake, chucked it at the newlyweds and began screaming about how he was a deadbeat dad while she grabbed table wine bottles that she smashed on the ground.”
Not his fault okay… But not the most pleasant of situations.
Of course, these are not the only signs, plus, fortunately, there are plenty exceptions. Good luck, though.
