So, it is 9 days out until the Big Day. Exchanging vows is the part I am looking forward to the most, but now, reading it over, I was hoping to get some outside input! I am turning to the weddingbee-ers for their sage advice:
There are so many things in life that we can’t begin to understand why or how they happened that way. But through all of life’s uncertainties, I know that I have one sure thing. You are my sure thing. You have been the person that I could count on, always, for everything. You have been the person that I could laugh with, the hand that I could hold, and the shoulder for me to lean on. You are the one I share my secrets with, the one to share my dreams with, and now, the one to share my life with. And I want to thank you for being the person that you are. Your kindness, your love, and your gentleness have changed me.
For through everything, life has brought us here, to this moment… and I am so grateful for that. Because today, I am standing here, in front of our closest family and friends, and most of all, I am thankful because I get to marry my very best friend today.
I guarantee that we have some very happy days ahead. But I also guarantee that there will be some tough times. But I also know, through all the nice days and the tougher days, I can’t imagine living this life without you. So, from this day forth, I promise to be your very best friend. I will love you and care for you. I will be your hand to hold and your shoulder to lean on. And most of all, I promise I will be your sure thing. The person you can count on, always, for everything, because…
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give to you. I love you.
