"The couples that are 'meant to be' are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger than they were before."
Sometimes I forget I have a wedding to plan.
Other brides and newlyweds sometimes sing a frantic chorus about invitations, flowers, colors, shoes, dresses, linen, glasses, napkins and I stare icily at them. Huh?
Errr..., I'm having a ball inside my dreams with my fiance of our marriage and children. I don't get into all that wedding hype, especially knowing we do not wish to spend all that money on one hot day. We refuse.
Besides, who wants to talk about a pricey wedding all day when you are fancying the precious moments with the Husband-to-be? They say, if you want something to last forever, you'll treat it differently. And that is exactly how I treat my precious relationship with Reggie. Our partnership is so indescribable. I guess, I am having too fun much planning the marriage with my best friend than the wedding.
Last night, Reggie took to me on our surprise date to see The Nutcracker Ballet at the Detroit Opera House. I must say, the best part of our magical night was witnessing him really enjoying the ballet! It was such a joyful site to see! Afterwards, we went to dinner and flirted all night. These are the little moments where I am engulfed with mountains of joy from spending time with my best friend.
While enjoying the holiday glee with frost and cranberries, I've noticed how July is well on her way. With our genius Wedding planner, I am yielded from the wedding stress that I was warned about. Our planner is passionate, precise, organized and honest. And we have conversations that can last for days! And guess what! Hey now! I actually get excited talking about the wedding with her! With our planner's assistance, I am much more excited of planning such an extravagant event. See, I do smile about this thing. You better remember this!
But when you are this in love with someone, you don't really think about waltzing down with flowers or spending hundreds of dollars on ridiculously overpriced wedding cake that no one eats. You rather dream about your secret garden of nights of endless chatter and kisses.
Am I that distracted?
I guess I am too busy being in love with this guy. I want to be a happy bride, but I rather be a happy wife.
All in all, I just want to have a marriage more beautiful than the wedding.
Please do not get me twisted. I am looking forward to getting dolled up and walking down the aisle in the most gorgeous dress I could ever dream of, meeting my handsome Heaven-Sent Husband at the altar. I am just more focused on the day with him and God after the party. Is that wrong?
We've been through too much to fantasize about stupid wedding favors and hideous cake toppers.
And uh...no, I haven't picked out The Dress yet. I'm on it. I promise. ;)
