The other night I was watching TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress; it’s a guilty pleasure that I indulge in every once in a while. For the sake of those who may not have seen it, it portrays a bride-to-be’s experience of selecting her wedding dress. There are always a few “helpers” that come along to help the bride select the perfect dress, and on the episode I just watched, it was mothers of the bride-to-be who were there. One mother was so critical that it made me want to cry for her daughter.
My daughter and her husband celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary this week and she has written wise words about how the magic of the wedding transforms into to a deeper commitment as the years go by on her blog.
Getting married is much more than saying yes to a dress, it’s saying yes to hard work, commitment, dedication, love, and tons of fun and laughter.
