I was sitting in your shoes just about 8 months ago. It was the morning of my wedding day, and although I was happy and excited I will be the first to admit I had some nerves.
I woke up and went for a run like any normal morning. But once I got back and showered the busyness of the day started to set it.
From the time I got my nails done to the time I was sitting in the bridal sweet with my Dad getting to walk down the isle to marry my best friend it went in the blink of an eye.
Before we knew it the ceremony was over. That 20 minutes was such a blur, I don’t remember the people besides my husband and I don’t remember the song choices we chose.
If there had to be one bit of advice I would give a couple on their wedding day it would be, set aside some alone time for the two of you.
No matter how big your wedding is, 20 people, 120 people, there will not be time for just you and your now husband or wife to be together to celebrate together and to enjoy this precious time in your lives if you don’t plan for it.
My husband and I were given the same advice from friends before our wedding, so we decided after the ceremony and wedding pictures were done we would take 20 minutes to just sit in our bridal sweet together to talk, hug, kiss, just be together and enjoy a few minutes as husband and wife.
Yes you have your whole life ahead of you, but you will never get those 20 minutes back. Have your coordinator get you a drink, but take the time to slow done, uninterrupted to share how you’re feeling and share the love.
Not only is it amazing to just slow down the time a couple minutes, but remembering those moments through the good times and bad. Remember that picture perfect moment of love. Remembering to put your love for each other first on the not so good days of marriage, that moment just can’t be beat.
