Many girls start dreaming of their wedding day when they are little. They dream of the perfect day that they will remember forever. However, most of these little girls don’t expect the unscripted parts of that special day that actually make the memories even stronger.
If you’ve seen the news lately or even the Yahoo! main page, you’ve probably heard about the wedding party that fell into Gun Lake when the pier they were standing on for pictures collapsed. If you haven’t seen it, click here to watch the video.
While I didn’t fall into a lake, my wedding had it’s own little snafu that I’ll never forget. The wick of the unity candle was trimmed too short. When we tried to light it from the other candles, they kept dripping wax onto the unity candle wick and it just wouldn’t light. Thank goodness it was not a sign of things to come since we have now been married six years and are going strong! Now we look back and laugh, but there was a fleeting moment of panic at the time.
You can’t plan every second of your wedding and reception, but you can put every effort into making the day a beautiful beginning to a hopefully long life with your loved one. The library can help with all kinds of planning and advice books. Don’t stress over the small things. The wedding is just the first day of your marriage. Celebrate and have fun no matter what happens!
