Two and a half days and counting. That's how many days are left until I plunge into the realms of wedded bliss.
The past eight months have flown by as my fiancé and I have planned for our wedding day with the help of my mother, of course. Flowers have been selected, decorations made, dresses fitted, and plans finalized as we have awaited the day.
The most common question asked as I still work and find myself talking with people in the community is, "are you nervous."
The simple answer is no.
I suppose I have a lot to be nervous about as I start a new family with my fiancé, but none of them surround being married or if I'm making the right decision. I know I am.
I'm not even all that worried that my wedding will go without a hitch. I'm sure something with happen. I just pray it's not major.
Everyone wants their wedding day to be the perfect, most magical day of their life filled with joy and happiness. No one goes into marriage with the idea of ever having to do it again.
But, with every well-wisher there are also stories of wedding horrors. One friend of ours last night said his brother's wedding cake fell and had to be served with a spoon. I hope I don't have to go through falling wedding cakes. I trust the cake will be perfect.
If I had any concerns they would more likely be that I don't trip down the aisle or pass out.
I don't think either of those are possibilities, but there are hundreds of videos of brides and the horrible things that occur on their wedding day. They have to come from somewhere.
I think most of my nervousness comes from the thought of kissing my new husband in front of a crowd of people.
I know it sounds weird to most, especially in a time where love is sometimes confused for other feelings, but my fiancé and I have never kissed. In fact, we've never kissed anyone else either.
It's something we're both proud of, but at the same time a bit nerve-racking for me.
So in my last days of singleness, I have been filling my time with final plans and occupying my time with other activities so I don't have time to worry, stress or get nervous.
I'm ready for a little pampering, it's a must for every bride, and I look forward to walking down the aisle. I am throwing worries to the wind and taking the plunge.
He's the one I've waited for and now that our wedding day is only hours away, I don't want to spoil it by fretting.
