Hello Pretty Bee’s!
The Fiance 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 Fiance 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 Maid/Matron of Honor 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
