Hello Pretty Bee’s!
The FI and I are counting down our days (20 to go!) before our wedding. Amidst all the final details, one is VERY important – prayer between us BEFORE we go down the aisle. We have opted to have a “First Look” and to spend a few precious moments together in prayer.
My only fear is that my nerves – excitement and nervousness- will get the best of me & my brain, so i planned to have a small index card with a few lines of prayer/blessing on it.
Do any NEWBees & MarriedBees recall prayer you and your FI perhaps recited or reflected on together BEFORE the ceremony? Would love suggestions or your memories of your “wisdom, faith, & devotion” with you and your FH.

@AshevilleArboretumBride: We didn’t do that (because we didn’t do a first look) but I think that’s a lovely idea! I did pray with my MOH at my house before leaving for the church though. I’ve no idea what we prayed, we just prayed what was on our hearts. And for you: when it’s just the two of you, I don’t think a recited prayer matters – pray what’s on your heart. If you want an index card, perhaps give it to your husband, because wedding dresses rarely have pockets!

@paula1248: You are most definitely correct! I had that feeling, I should have just submitted to it 😉 I guess all the “planning” is catching up with me — this might be one thing to just let go and be in the moment. Thanks for being a great Voice of Reason. (and reminding me about no pockets!) LOL
