Stories surround us each and every single day. The stories on the news can be disheartening and informative. The stories your friends tell you can help you to become closer and understand each other better. Even billboards are telling us stories as we pass by them quickly on the highway. Everywhere there is a story. On top of that, everyone has a story. Everyone has something that makes them unique. We at 2211 not only believe this, but we live this. What is your story? How do you find your story? We’ll help. Everyone has a Wedding Story.
Everyone has a Wedding Story
Think of the last time something happened to you that was story worthy. If this comes easy or hard to you, generally whatever you think of, during the event, you were not thinking that a story was going to come from this. You were looking to go into the next step. Thinking about what you’re going to eat for lunch. The story though, is always happening, regardless of whether you are being an active participant in it or not. And you can find what your story it by attempting to take a look at yourself from the outside in.
Writing your story down is a simple tactic. We were all taught how to do this when growing up. We would make stories in kindergarten classes and present them. If you ever did show and tell, you had to tell the story of the thing you brought to class. We would write these things down to help us tell the story better. By writing down, or at least attempting to write down your story will help you immensely. This can be in the form of a journal. One of those journals that couples fill out with questions can be really helpful. They even have apps to record one second a day to help tell your story. Just write down what’s going on each day and eventually a story will come into fruition. As we said earlier, stories happen, regardless of whether you are actively participating or not.
Love is the main theme when it comes to most weddings. The celebration of love between the couple as they kiss and walk down the aisle for the first time as a married couple. The whole day is filled with the story of this couple and who they choose to have around them. The venue, the table settings, even the DJ all play a part in that story. This is why figuring out your story is so important. It can make planning the wedding even easier. You can find vendors that will fit into your story. Even choosing the food becomes easier when you find your story.
The hard part of wedding stories is that it is a combination of two personalities into one story. Each person has their own story. Along the timeline of their story, they find another person who also has their own story. Now they take those two stories and hold them together with the glue of love. As we find that story, we do it with another person by our side. We find what makes the two of us compatible. We find the word through our adventures together. The date at an Italian restaurant can be a story. The trip to Cancun is a story. Even the boring stuff can be a story. Take all of these things into effect when creating your story.
Next comes the hardest part of finding your story, telling it to others. Believe us when we say that telling people your own story can be hard. It can feel a combination of arrogant, embarrassing, and personal. How does one get past those feelings? It can be difficult, but each and every time you do it, it gets easier. The arrogance goes away once you start to entertain people. The embarrassment too. But that path to getting to entertaining can be hard. That’s where you can get other people to help. We are going to plug 2211 here. You knew it would happen.
