Many girls grow up dreaming of their perfect wedding fairytale. We are taught to desire the perfect dress, flower arrangements, and decor. We envision the moment where we walk down the isle with all eyes on us. Our groom is foooineeee, 6 foot, with everything marked off our list of what we want in a man.
The thing is, although there is nothing wrong with having your wedding turn out the exact way you dream, this is not the reality for everyone. The truth is, this was not my reality.
The world does a great job at preparing us for the wedding day but not such a great job at preparing us for marriage. These weddings are extravagant, lovely, and picture perfect. There are so many professionals there to help… from a wedding planner, to the florist, receptionist, photographer, travel agent, caterer, and so on. So many people contribute to this one time event and help you prepare for this moment that will change your life forever. The only thing is… after you cut the cake, make a toast, and dance the night away… everyone leaves and goes back to there normal lives. At that time, you will have the responsibility, along with your spouse, of working out your marriage together.
