Focus on what matters. At the end of the day, even if you trip, or you get cake on your dress, the flowers aren’t right, etc…. at the end of the day, you’re going to be married, happy & snuggling with your new spouse.
My mom freaked out numerous times leading up to & on the day; we were late to get our hair done & almost late to the church; most of our guests got lost ‘cause the main street was blocked off for a parade; my husband accidentally forgot a in our vows; everybody left the church before we could do family photos; it was cold and windy and overcast; our slideshow (somehow…) included a photo of me grabbing one of my friend’s boobs; and there were no forks to eat our cake with.
But you know what? It was one of the happiest days of my life. I spent the morning surrounded by friends and family. We ate breakfast together while getting our hair and makeup done. I was so excited to marry my husband I made the priest giggle. Everyone thought it was awesome our town threw a parade on our wedding day. My new husband and I played thumbwar at the altar when the priest wasn’t looking (I totally won.) One of my favourite photos from the day was my bridesmaids & I snuggling to keep warm. Everybody thought the slideshow was hilarious (it was!) and had a great time at the reception. My husband and I fed each other cake from our hands, rocked out with our guests, got to tell our families how much we love them, and best of all, got to fall asleep together in a giant bed after soaking in our hotel room’s jacuzzi bathtub.
It doesn’t matter what goes wrong on the wedding day. It was like I had a bulletproof vest of happy. Just enjoy the day, and most importantly, enjoy waking up to your new spouse the morning after :)
