As much as the wedding day is about the holy union of marriage you’re entering into, don’t forget to involve those you’ve been in union with for years.
If you have never experienced a very close friend or family member go from single to married, it’s quite a transition. Those closest to you are, in a sense, losing a part of you. Your life will never be the same as you’ll enter into a covenant becoming one with another who will be the most important person in your life. I say that to say if you haven’t already thought about it, make a little room throughout the wedding process to connect with those dearest to you. Stop discussing checklists for a moment and share how you are feeling whether excited, nervous, anxious, etc. Or better yet, ask them how they are doing, unrelated to the wedding activities. They will love you even more for it.
Invite them on your journey, so they can go through the process of saying good bye and prepare to greet the new married woman in their lives.
