What if you and your guests were to be guests of the bride?
Or the groom?
That is the question that has come up with a new way of thinking about wedding planning in Australia, with a big focus on how you plan your wedding.
The results of a survey commissioned by the ABC show that the biggest change for many people is that they are less interested in planning weddings for a specific person, like their spouse or parents, than they are in planning a wedding for the whole family.
“Wedding planning is not about a single event, it’s about the whole day,” said Anne Marie Waters, chief executive of Australian Marriage, an advocacy group that promotes traditional marriage.
“People are very busy with their families and they don’t have the time or the energy to go out and do a wedding or a reception.” “

The survey found that while the majority of people who had planned a wedding said they wanted to be a part of the day, there were also a number of people in this group who were unhappy about the wedding being a party and would prefer to have a different date or event.
The most common reasons for choosing not to go to the wedding were that they didn’t want to be present during the reception, and because the groom had just arrived and was not available to take part.
Other common reasons were that it was a public holiday, and that the wedding would be held in the family home, but there was no wedding reception scheduled.
What’s the problem with wedding planning?
“There’s a lot going on, so we really need to understand how people’s relationships are with one another,” Ms Waters said.
“We need to really understand the ways in which couples communicate, and also to understand that people have different needs.”
People will want to go somewhere, be in a place, and not be present in the same way, and if they can’t go to a wedding they’re not going to go anyway.
It’s just an excuse for people to go.” “
I think we have a really bad relationship between wedding planning and family planning because there’s no time for family planning.
It’s just an excuse for people to go.”
Why not just do a lot more of the planning?
There are two main reasons why people don’t go out to their wedding.
First, they don�t want to.
Second, they aren’t sure that the plan is good enough for them.
It’s a big issue for the Australian Institute of Marriage (AIM), which said that while people were generally more open to planning a big event like a wedding, the reality is that it is a lot easier to make a big, complicated decision like going to the party, than it is to plan a wedding.
“A lot of our survey respondents felt that the amount of planning that they did for a wedding was either not enough, or was not a big enough deal,” said Dr Rachel Tynan, chief of AIM�s social research unit.
“What they really wanted to do was a family wedding, and they had very specific criteria for that.
�People were really upset when they found out they couldn’t go, or couldn�t go and they weren�t happy with the amount they had to spend.”
And it wasn�t just that they felt like the money spent on the wedding was going to make up for the cost of the reception or the ceremony.
“It was the amount that they were going to have to spend to get them to the event, and there were no plans in place for how much they were to spend at the reception and afterwards.”
So people are actually worried about what is the right amount of time they are spending with their partner, and it was hard to plan weddings that they weren’t happy with.”
What do you think?
Are people having too many wedding planning meetings?
Have you noticed that you have a lot less friends and family when you plan a big wedding?
