Build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points.


Bestselling author Marcus Buckingham says that “each person’s greatest room for growth is in his or her areas of greatest weakness.”  I hope that is true because I am a horrible blogger and plan on turning that around.  Grow with me people…

Why am I a horrible blogger? For a few reasons, my grammar skills are something left to be desired, even though I love to write.  Write what? I don’t know, whatever is on my mind at that moment. Only problem is, I love it when I am actually caught up in the moment doing it.  Getting started… That is another story and that is why I am a horrible blogger. Also, what should I blog about? Only show my work? Won't that get boring?   In my attempt to grow, and turn my weakness into strength.  I will post a Sunday Suggestion on, well if you hadn't clued in, Sundays! Every Sunday? I don’t think I am ready to commit to that, but I will commit to one Sunday a Month....for now.  How does that sound?  

Now back to the point. (You still with me?)  

Today’s Sunday Suggestion is to know your weakness!

Question is, how do I turn that into something related to what I do? I am a wedding photographer not a motivational speaker! So while you are planning your wedding - I ask you this. Are you an event planner? DJ? Photographer? Caterer? If you are one of those, then the rest will probably not be where your strengths are. So, I advise you get an expert’s advice.   That being said…Weddings tend to turn everyone into an expert at something, or so I have noticed.  Be diligent and seek out help from those who can help not just those with an opinion.  Let me give you an inside tip. (Or a Sunday Suggestion! HA see how that works?) You can always email or call an expert and ask questions.  Asking questions early on will save you both time and money. Not to mention your sanity in the long run. 

Seeking out qualified professionals to help you with anything you find intimidating and unfamiliar will keep you sane. I promise.  

Regarding everyone’s opinion, and you will hear a LOT, I promise.  Listen to them, there will be some great insight for you from parents, recently married friends, bridal message boards, and so much more.  Just be sure not to be controlled by public opinion.  It is your wedding and just because that is how “they” say it needs to be done, isn't necessarily how it needs to be done for your wedding.   Be strong, know what you want and if you have any questions on how to make it happen, that is when asking is going to save your sanity.   If you keep your sanity, your weakness will become strengths, your wedding will be perfect and amazing, and you will live happily ever after.  

It is true. Don’t question me, I am a wedding professional!

What are your weaknesses and how will you turn them into strengths in planning your wedding? Happy Sunday and Happy Planning!  


P.S. Hubs seems to think my biggest weakness is shoes.  I might have to agree that is another weakness I may have. However; if it wasn't for a fabulous pair of shoes, our wedding wouldn't have been as awesome as it was.  I planned my entire wedding around my shoes, the ones you see above, and it was perfect!
