Becoming a parent has long been a hugely life changing even for many different people throughout history. After all, parenthood utterly changes so much, from your perspective on the world to your priorities to the basics of your everyday life.

The stress and wedding planning associated with it is only amplified if you’re planning on hosting a large wedding.
