I had never really thought about it when I was little because I was a big tomboy. Mine was in 2004, I went to Vegas for the first time and it was during the afternoon and I was leaving the Bellagio. A bride walked out of the door next to me and she was so gorgeous. She was smiling and the whole wedding party was there. It seemed kind of magical or something. I think brides have this aura about them. I knew right then that I wanted to get married and in vegas.

When I was little…probably like 4? My little sister was a baby and she slept with my parents. I had to sleep in my own room (of course) and I remember telling my mom that it wasn’t fair that she got to sleep with my dad, my sister got to sleep in the room with them and that I was the only one who had to sleep alone! She told me that one day when I’m married I won’t have to sleep alone either. Anddddd so I knew I’d want to get married LOL. I still hate sleeping alone!
On a deeper level I’ve always known that I wanted to get married, to commit to sharing my life with someone who would be my best friend.

I always knew I wanted to end up married, but even as a kid I dreaded walking down the aisle with people staring at me! So I looked forward to marriage but not the wedding. Now that I’m on the other side of the big day, I think I had it right as a kid! The walk down the aisle was not my idea of a good time, but I love being married.

I always knew I wanted to get married, ofcourse in those days I just wanted to have a pretty white dress like barbie.. then when I saw the Jungle book movie and the village girl at the end sings the song “My own home” it made me really want to be grown too. Here is the song for those that dont know it. sadly I still love it!!

I knew I wanted to get married when I first saw my now Fiance on our college campus. I know how cheezy it must sound, but it’s true. I never thought about marriage until I met him. What get’s me more than anything else…..is that I remember seeing him and thinking as plain as day…that’s the man I’m going to marry. Finally after 5 and a half years, I’ll be marrying my best friend and soul mate.

I thought about it as a given growing up. Then in my early 20s I became disillusioned and swore I would never get legally married. And then Darling Husband came along and that idea went right out the window, lol.

After I was in a steady relationship for over 2 years, I just wanted to take the next step of commitment and showing the world we wanted to be together.
Impulsive at 18, but I am glad I didn’t go that far with my ex. My current partner however – just feels right 🙂

When I was 16 and I dreamed of being grown up in my own home with someone I loved. I guess I saw it as somewhat of an escape.

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know I wanted to get married. It’s just something I’ve always known I wanted since I was a very little kid. Obviously my perspectives on it have changed since then, but not my desire for it.

When I met Fiance. I knew I would do it someday, but once I met him I suddenly had an actual desire to. Now I can’t wait!

I guess I’ve always thought marriage was a given for me. I didn’t start thinking about the actual wedding though until Fiance brought up the discussion of rings, then I went overboard.
