Hey guys I’m sure you’re wondering from the topic what is this wedding thing about? But over the weekend I went to my aunt’s wedding and while I have been to weddings before (not a lot though), and for the little I have been to, I am always very numb and wondered why people spend so much money on weddings.
I would always tell my friends I don’t want to have a wedding; I’d much prefer to just get married at the court or something and of course a big ass ring lol. Although when I was younger, like 9 or 10 years old, I wanted to have that grand wedding; but as I got older my mentality has changed towards the whole thing. I told myself I don’t want to have a wedding because that’s not the important part, it’s the marriage. And yes I know the wedding isn’t important, but on Saturday I realized that having an actual wedding is something that I would want.
It was so exciting!!!!!!
For the record I had to stick myself in and help with the planning. I wanted her to have a great day, good food and lots of fun. Plus I didn’t want anything tacky of course because sometimes weddings can get real tacky, real quick. Lol I also think because I helped plan the wedding it gave me a different perspective on a lot of things like love for instance.
Having a partner who is supportive and who genuinely wants to make you happy is a blessing. If that person also has good communication, compromises and demonstrates a level of understanding; you have hit the jackpot!!(No, I am not a relationship expert lol). Just seeing my aunt and her husband communicate, and how involved he was in the whole process made it all work out exceptionally well, and that for me was refreshing. Because according to people, you don’t have a lot of men being like that. Then again it could also be because I am getting older and my mind is in a different place.
Ironically, ever since the wedding I feel like I love “love”, if that makes any sense lol. Before it was like awwwww that is sweet kind of thing. (And no my heart isn’t or wasn’t stone I’m just not mushy, a fact about me). Another thing all of my close friends are either happily married or getting married soon. And for the ones that are getting married soon I’m even more so excited now, lol
hmmmmm maybe I can even get in on the planning lol, which I would loveeeeee.
Weddings are bliss, but a marriage is a union that should never be broken. But I just thought it would be nice to share my oh so eventful weekend with you and my thoughts during and after the wedding.
we had a blast!!!!
And remember to all my newlyweds, engaged couples, married couples and even couples in general.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7- Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Until next week
