I am wondering when we forgot the meaning of marriage and the importance of getting married. I am married myself and I do remember spending more time writing my own vows than choosing a napkin. I remember crying at my wedding ceremony regardless the makeup or the photos. I remember enjoying the party dancing in a comfortable dress and enjoying the company of my friends and family. Now, that I see my photos, many years after, I only see happiness!
These days ceremonies only take 10 minutes, some couples do not say anything to each other and others write funny votes because they cannot handle real deep feelings. But trusts me, all of them spend a lot of time planning the wedding palette color, the reception theme and a long “by the minute” agenda.
Marriage is a life decision than can potentiate your own being. A good marriage can bring out the best of you, even those strengths that you did not know you had. A good marriage brings your best friend home, blesses you with the supporter of your craziest dreams and gives you a shoulder to cry. A good marriage gives you someone who walks at your side, letting you be and looking after your happiness at all times.
A wedding is about the experience, love and care that you give your friends and family. It is not just about you; it is about all of you. So please make sure you spend more time planning everyone comfort and ease. Make sure you take the time to tell everyone how much you appreciate their presence and support on that special day.
And please make sure the important list is taken care of before choosing a napkin …
Who remembers a napkin anyways?
