Don’t you love weddings? planning a wedding is hard work but in the end it’s a great reward.
This Friday is my sister’s wedding. 🙂
After so much planning and so much preparation, her big day is finally around the corner. It can be stressful if we let the little things get to us, it’s best to remember to always keep the bride satisfied.. After all it is her day; Ohh Yeah and the groom’s also.
They were the best of friends as children, they disconnected years back; He went to the army, she moved from the city but God reunited them and has blessed them so much. They got engaged about a year ago and are ready to start their life together.
Last Friday we had a bachelorette party for the bride. The maid of honor (another sister) was expecting all the woman to go and to celebrate with the bride so she bought lots of games, decorations and a beautiful cake, she also made some delicious margaritas. The people all knew when to go and where but when the day came they were all full of excuses; some said they thought it was the next day, others said they didn’t know where it was and some of them didn’t even give an explanation they just didn’t go.
–If you are ever invited to a wedding please make it for the ceremony, the reception, and anything else they’ll be having for the bride. If your excuse is you don’t want to go because you don’t have a gift; it’s not about the gift it’s about celebrating this time of change in that person’s life.
So only close friends and family made it. Which was great because that’s how the bride assumed it was going to be anyways and she loved it like that. The theme was a masquerade and we surprised her when she walked through the door. Her fiance brought her with the pretext that he was taking her out to eat, of course she knew something was up when he took her to an apartment instead of a restaurant.
At the end of the night we dropped her off at home to her fiance,we had many laughs, took lots of pictures, danced and played games, (what else are we supposed to do in a bachelorette for a christian woman?).
The most important thing about that night though was that the bride enjoyed herself.
Wednesday we have rehearsals.
And finally Friday is the big day, the bride is anxious and excited about it all. Hopefully we all have a great time in celebrating a couple that God brought together.
I’ll tell you all about the wedding next time!
_Unfailing Love by Jimmy Needham_ is the song that she will be walking down to, It’s truly beautiful, I recommended it, she heard it and loved it and I hope you all enjoy it too. : )
PS. I’m sorry guys that I have not been posting anything lately. I just started this blog last week and I’m so thankful for the followers and viewers that I have so far. It turns out that I like blogging so much more than I thought I would. SO I promise to continue as soon as the hectic wedding is over with.
