It’s your wedding day, you’ve waited for this. Planned, organized, and worked rigorously towards it. No more decorating, cake tasting, booking vendors- you’ve made it. You have stressed over it. You dreamed of it. It’s finally here.
As you wait to walk down the aisle you will feel the anxiety like no other. It will pass. Remember that waiting for you at the other end of the aisle is your future, is your partner in your life adventure and together it is going to be okay. As you walk down the aisle the pre-ceremony anxiety will change, you will realize “this is happening, right now.” No more waiting.
The ceremony will be magical, almost surreal. When you say your vows to your partner you are binding yourselves together. You are doing this in front of yourloving family and closest friends, this becomes one of the most special moments of your life.
You’re marrying your best friend, you won’t be able to stop smiling. Everyone who is in attendance is there to celebrate you as a couple, to celebrate your connection, to celebrate your love. Those who are there, whether they are your friends and family who you see every day, or those who you haven’t seen since college, are there to support you and shower you with well-wishes.
There will be food and drinks. Speeches and dancing. Stories, tears, and laughter. Have fun! It’s a party, remember! There will be so many memories of your big day, and you will remember the good things, so forget about the little things that don’t go as planned. This is your day.
There will be a moment that you will remember forever. A moment so special it will catch you completely off guard.You don’t know what this moment is going to be, or when it’s going to be. It could be a moment alone with your mother, your dance with your father, your moment alone with your new spouse. All you need to know is that it will be amazing.
After all is said and done, no matter how long you and your spouse have been together, once you’re legally wed and made the vows in front of loving witnesses it will feel different, it will feel official.
This will be a special day that you will always remember. The most important part is that you remember to enjoy it, it’s your moment.
