It’s Wedding Season: Are You Truly Ready for Yours?
We recently got a person that edits and dresses up these posts we write in the building. We affectionately refer to him as “Blog Boy.” Blog Boy is getting married next week and has been receiving advice from EVERYONE! Anyone that has been married attempts to share their wisdom over how to handle the wedding as well as the relationship afterwards, myself included.
Every time I hear of someone getting ready to take the big step, I offer only one piece of advice. Some follow it, others don’t. I remember a friend of mine that was getting married some 20 years ago. To this day, he tells me that he wished he had heeded my warning about the ceremony. He obviously didn’t and was VERY uncomfortable. The fact that his wedding was a full Catholic Mass will bear some relevance to you in a moment.
Not everyone is geared to be the center of attention. You’re in front of a congregation of people. All eyes are on your and the person with whom you are about to exchange vows. You are about to profess your undying love for this individual with everyone hanging on your every word. So believe me when I tell you, this nugget of knowledge is important.
Just before you go out to the ceremony, take a moment and pee. Even if you don’t think you have to go, give it the old “college try,” because just as you step out there and there’s no turning back, your nerves start kicking in. You look at a venue FULL of your friends and relatives, you WILL start to feel pressure on your bladder.
That’s it. It is the one thing that nobody told me on my wedding day that I wish they had. After that, you’re on your own. I’ll let everyone else annoy you with the useless stuff.
