Between saying "yes" to the proposal and “I do” to the vows, the most arduous process is the wedding planning. A bride needs all the help she can get! But things can get a little sticky if her personality gets in the way of her reasoning.
Here’s a little head up for all grooms-to-be, we hope this guide gives you some insights to your bride’s horoscope and the sort of help that you could possibly give her to ease the process of wedding planning.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Strength: Confident, Bold
Weakness: Competitive, Self-centred
What we advise: Given your bride’s competitive nature, there’s a possibility that she would want to assemble all the greatest ideas that’s ever been present in every wedding and showcase it on her own wedding event, without sparing a thought for your pocket. Drop her a gentle reminder once in awhile of the budget that you’ve both set on and steer her off the coast of overspending!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Strength: Has good taste and common sense, Materialistic
Weakness: Indulgence, Vanity
What we advise: Materialism isn’t necessarily a bad thing when it comes to spending money. Your bride is going to make every penny spent on her wedding worthwhile. But sometimes, she might get over-indulged with her good taste for things and vanity that she makes rash decisions over things. Make sure she counter checks with you on the items that she’s planning to pay for the wedding so that she doesn’t impulse buy on anything!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Strength: Creative, Open-mindedness
Weakness: Inconsistency, tendency to contradict
What we advise: While it’s great that you have a creative bride, her open-mindedness towards all things fun and vibrant or even interesting might be her Achilles Heels as it attributes to her fickle-mindedness. Make sure she settles one aspect of the wedding first before going on to another aspect of it. Otherwise, you won’t get anything done even as your wedding day come close.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Strength: Sensitive, Sentimental
Weakness: Mood swing, Jealousy
What we advise: Got a cancerian bride? Then you’ve found yourself a gem because all she needs are a bit of assurance from you. Take care of her emotional well-being by showing her that you care about the wedding as much as she does and supports the decisions that she makes and we promise, she’d be more than happy.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Strength: Confident, Playful
Weakness: Overdramatic, Bossy
What we advise: A wedding is already a dramatic event. There’s no need for so much drama along the way. We know that she enjoys being the centre of attention, but keep your bride’s bossiness in check by reminding her to be more tactful with the way she handles things so that she doesn’t end up offending anyone even as she plans for the wedding. Afterall, a wedding is supposed to be a joyous occasion isn’t it?
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Strength: Organized, Structured,
Weakness: Perfectionist, Overanalyze
What we advise: It’s human to err and it’s impossible to attain perfection in every scenario. Advise your bride to take a breather often so that she doesn’t overexert herself while planning for her big day. This also allows those who are working around her to cut some slack as she rejuvenates to look her best on the day of the event.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Weakness: Tends to run out of energy soon, procrastination
What we advise: You have a two faceted bride, as shown in her star sign, where she constantly seeks to find a balance in life. While she can be an energetic individual, she tends to run out of energy soon and you’d find her slipping into a state of procrastination very quickly. To keep the adrenaline rush going, constantly motivate her and make this planning process as fun and exciting possible so that she doesn’t feel stagnant in this long process.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Strength: Intuitive, resilient
Weakness: Paranoid, controlling
What we advise: You may have a mysterious bride with a keen sense of intuition and she is always able to stick through something with sheer resilience, regardless of the level of difficulty of the job. Yet her greatest enemy is paranoia or fear for failure which explains her controlling nature. Like cancers, she needs your reassurance and compliments to keep herself going even when the going gets tough. So bear in mind to be generous towards your bride with praises!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Strength: Adventurous and Humorous
Weakness: Blunt, Crude, Impatient
What we advise: Your bride might be good natured at heart but sometimes her intentions may be misinterpreted due to her misuse of words and tactlessness. Help her to stay out of trouble by speaking up for her whenever you feel that her meaning has been misunderstood.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Strength: Consistent, Patient, Thoughtful
Weakness: Pessimistic, Self-doubt, Overly-cautious
What we advise: Be her ray of sunshine when the planning process gets challenging. Your optimism is going to be her anchor when she immerses too deeply in her sense of self-doubt and anxiety. It might take up a bit of your patience when dealing with your bride but nonetheless, keep your cool because wedding planning is really no easy feat.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Strength: Youthfulness, Open-mindedness
Weakness: Stubborn, Aloof
What we advise: You have a bride with a very friendly nature. Yet, controversial to her friendliness and fun-going personality, she has a rather perverse attitude in which she doesn’t not enjoy the inference of others regarding her personal matters and she can be quite stubborn and strong-headed in this aspect. Try to persuade her to listen to constructive advises from the people around her and she might find herself gaining inspirations which could be useful for her wedding!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Weakness: Impractical, enjoys fantasizing
What we advise: Helping your bride to stay rooted is your main focus. Being practical isn’t one of her strengths and she would require your help to draw a clear line between fantasy and reality. That said, don’t be a cold blanket. Offer her alternatives when she suggests any impractical ideas so that she gets the planning going even as she continues to fantasise about her princess-like wedding.
