What is relationship coaching?
What good is an amazing wedding if you don’t have an amazing marriage to back it up? That’s what relationship coaching is all about. It’s working on your relationship before there’s a problem – like training before you run a marathon. You train so you can stay in shape and make it to the finish line, not when you break your ankle. In coaching, you’ll learn about the strengths in your relationship, develop communication and conflict skills, understand where you need to grow, and decide how to keep the fun and love in your marriage for years to come.
You have to put effort into anything that you want to last a lifetime; marriage is no different.

Why add coaching to our registry?
Coaching, as you know, is about strengthening your relationship before problems arise and setting a solid foundation for your marriage. When you add coaching to your registry, you’re not telling your guests that you’re headed for divorce unless they bail you out with some therapy. You’re telling your guests that you care more about your lifetime marriage than a new toaster or set of towels. You’re asking your guests to invest in your relationship and directly support your marriage.
At weddings, guests get to witness the start of a brand new marriage and they’re often asked to support that marriage and lift up the couple. How cool would it be if your guests could actually do that for you by gifting you with relationship coaching sessions?
