As I’m planning my wedding, I’ve been reading lots of magazines and hearing others’ stories of their wedding day, and one thing has come through as very important: How precious it is to be surrounded by people who you (and your spouse) love and who love and support you two as a couple. I love that idea, and have been feeling it as I”m planning. I’m especially learning that now.
Last week, I got a call from my dress shop that my dress maker no longer makes the gown I chose in white, though they do in ivory. I’m going to try it on in ivory; perhaps make another choice, but that’s not the cool thing. The cool thing is that I posted about this on Facebook, and asked my married friends about their experiences with white vs. ivory gowns, for example, how it work on their complexions or in photographs. I have gotten over 20 comments on that post (a lot for me) and they are all friends and people I love from the various stages of my life offering encouragement and advice, sometimes an odd joke.
I think this is what people meant when they were talking being supported by friends and loved ones
