What A Bride Thinks About Before The WeddingWeddings
Because we’re mostly seated at the back or wherever we get placed if we’re invited, we don’t often realise that the most nervous out of anyone in the event are actually standing right in front of us saying their vows and looking the loveliest. In retrospect, it should’ve been obvious that they’re carrying the weight of the stress of the entire event, since they’re the ones getting married.
It kind of makes you wonder what’s on their minds and what’s BEEN on their minds prior to this day. We get so caught up about what we’re going to wear and what are role during the wedding is that we tend to forget that the couple itself is probably thinking about EVERYTHING.
“This is real, right? Not a prank?”
Soon-to-be brides often think about this a few days after the proposal. They get so overwhelmed that they start thinking that this is all a dream or worse, a prank. A few gentle slaps to the face ought to do the trick!
“So… I won’t be single anymore after this”
Never mind the fact that you weren’t single months before this already (I mean, come on, you don’t just get married out of the blue without a boyfriend), this thought would often be playing in the bride’s mind.
“Is there a requirement that I have to call him something else after we’re married?”
It’s a little weird, yes, but there’s often a stigma about you changing what your pet names to each other is going to be, now that you two are officially and legally a couple. A MARRIED couple. Little do they know that pet names don’t matter and it shouldn’t change if they don’t have to.
“Is my smile okay? Do I look weird?”
With your loved ones looking at you since you’re the star of the event, it’s no wonder you feel like your smile isn’t as genuine or real as you might think. It’s all because of stress. And the hanging thought that pictures of that smile are going to be immortalised in picture frames in your future house for as long as you live. No pressure.
“What if I have sweaty armpits?”
This is a legit concern, isn’t it? As women, we fear having sweaty armpits, even though it’s perfectly natural and normal for human bodies to sweat. Still, that’s going to ruin the attire. You better carry secret tissues with you during the wedding and the reception. Wouldn’t want to ruin the attire.
“Did I gain weight? How am I going to fit into my outfits?”
Another legit concern. But then, you have the tailor that will be willing to adjust the dresses at short notice. Are you sure you can even eat properly during the months before the wedding? The nervousness and excitement kind of turns appetites off for a lot of people.
“How the HECK do I pee in this dress?”
Ah, even if I wasn’t a bride, I know how thinking like this feels like. Us women HAVE gone to proms, you know? I’ve had several experiences where I panicked how I was going to go to the bathroom while still in my princess dress. Make sure you pee a LOT before putting that dress on.
“Should I cry then?”
Why shouldn’t you? Cry if you can’t stop it but maybe don’t wail or sob so much or else your makeup artist will throttle you. Here’s to hoping you’re a pretty crier!
