16 Jun Your thoughts on the wedding day
Whether you’re future husband/wife is emotional or not, the wedding day is definitely a day that that will change the way they look at you.
Take a look at some of the thoughts that grooms/brides have when you’re walking down that aisle:
1. “Wow, did I luck out.”
If you’re about to get married, and you don’t feel like you just won the lottery, then chances are the relationship isn’t going the way it should.
That’s not to say you won’t feel that way later down the road, when you come to fully understand what that person means to you, but unless you feel like you lucked out, you’ll probably go searching for greener grass.
The human psyche is funny — we almost have to feel unworthy of someone to appreciate them fully.
Because whenever we do feel worthy of someone’s love and affection, we consider the possibility of upgrading — upgrading to someone who is, in a sense, out of our league.
But this is only when we don’t understand what — or who — we have.
Unfortunately, the only surefire way of understanding what it is you have is to have had it and lost it.
2. “It’s hard for me to believe I’m settling down, but he/she is most certainly the one.”
Being willing to say “I do” is not the same as being ready to get married and start a life together.
If you see your wife-to-be walking down that aisle, you’re likely to be a little shocked you’re in the position you’ve found yourself in. It’s completely understandable.
As long as you’re happy you’re standing where you are, about to go down the path you’re about to go down, the shock will pass, and you’ll have a wonderful life ahead of you.
3. “And just when I thought she couldn’t possibly look any more handsome/beautiful…”
A person’s beauty is directly correlated with their happiness, so it makes sense they look most beautiful on what presumably is the happiest day of their life.
When you see your husband/wife-to-be walking down the aisle, you should be watching them, every step of the way, in awe.
You should be in awe of the incredible person they are and the incredible partner you know they are going to be.
And that smile…
4. “Thank God I didn’t marry my ex.”
Hopefully, your past lovers won’t be popping into mind too much during your wedding, but you are likely to thank your lucky stars for not settling.
You may finally come to understand why it is things didn’t work out between you and your ex.
You didn’t understand it before, but that’s because you hadn’t yet met them, the love of your life.
At that very moment, you’re likely to be happy for all those mistakes you made; without them, you wouldn’t be standing where you right now.
5. “I need to take this in because I know this is going to be the happiest day of my life.”
If you’re lucky, you may manage to slow down time just enough for that single moment to feel almost like a lifetime.
We don’t get many moments of such clarity in life, but every so often everything around us slows down, allowing you to take everything in.
The only real way to find you in the moment is to allow yourself to be in the moment.
If you do it right, the memory will be so incredibly vivid that you’ll be able to return to it for years to come.
6. “I honestly can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this person.”
This should be the dominating thought ricocheting off the walls of your mind.
You should see your fiancé’s face and know you are going to have a good life together.
You should be able to look at them and see your future, the memories you’re going to create together and the love you know you will keep alive.
Weddings are a lot of fluff, but when you boil it all down, the only people who matter are the bride and groom.
Not the guests. Not the caterer or florist. Not the parents, best men or bridesmaids. This day is all about you and the woman you love. Be excited.
We hope that when you’re at the point of walking down the aisle, we’re there to play music at the beautiful ceremony or the awesome reception.
