Keeping Wedding Secrets: 3 Quips To Help Zip Your Lips
If you’re a bride like me, it is extremely difficult to keep it all under wraps. I want nothing more than to tell everyone everything, especially because they approach me and ask for all the details. How can you stop the word-vomit? Try these three actions that help me:
- Pick a limited amount of things to keep secret. It will be unbelievably difficult to keep everything hush-hush, so only pick a few details. You need to be discuss some elements of your wedding for conversations with people, so it’s important to share some information. You might choose to keep your wedding dress or the late night snacks that will give the guests fuel to keep dancing a secret. If people ask you about the super secret detail, say, “You’ll have to be there to find out.”
- Tell one good secret keeper. Your MOH, your groom, or even your mother might be best at keeping secrets, so make sure you divulge the fun details to someone who will keep their lips sealed.
- Find an anonymous forum online to vet your ideas. The Knot, Wedding Wire, and even local wedding websites like Long Island Weddings all have forums where brides can connect with brides so you can find someone to share your brilliant ideas with other brides who will appreciate them, without telling your guests what will happen at your wedding. If you choose to do so, be sure you create an anonymous name for yourself – that way nosy guests and fellow brides can’t trace the comments back to you.
These three actions will help you to keep some things under wraps so your wedding can be as popular and memorable as the McDonald’s French Fry with a Coke.
