Coming up on my one year wedding anniversary…and looking back there is only one thing I would change about our wedding, I wish our reception was a little bit longer (our presiding priest got a little carried away and gave a 45 min. homily…lol…our reception only ended up being about…3 hours long? maybe? although…we sent people away “wishing for more”…which is better then at some weddings I’ve been to where the reception drags and drags)
Things we did that I LOVE:
-had 4 priests and one deacon at the Mass.
-said our vows with our hands over the crucifix that now hangs above our bed, and we say our prayers together in front of it
-gave away rosaries blessed by Pope Benedict that I got during World Youth Day as reception favors, instead of matches or bags of candy or whatever
-the day before the wedding we:
–had a Holy Hour for vocations
–had the rehearsal for the Mass
–THEN went to the rehearsal dinner
Try to relax and enjoy the day…it was the best day of my life (lol so far…still waiting on this little one to make her appearance), it was so fun…what a special, awesome time, those last few days leading up to the wedding! Keep things simple and in perspective so you can enjoy every moment and not be stressed!!
