- The best part of a wedding? Sharing the love.
I started out on the right track.
When I go to weddings, the best part is the celebration. I love the good food, the dancing, dressing nice to celebrate someone else's happiness. I like seeing what people choose for colors and stuff, and you get to see the couple on a very happy day in their lives. I feel people make a big misconception that it's the most important day in their life, but it really is not. It is an important MOMENT. The most important DAY is looking at your child for the first time...
I work in a banquet hall, and what I like about those weddings is setting up the tables just right, trying to make them look how the bride might vision them in her head. Again, many couples have awesome ideas and I just love how it all goes together. It's wonderful to see the celebration as an outsider, people are always so damn happy at weddings. This one Nigerian couple danced in, all their families and friends were clapping and singing, and you could feel the good vibes in that room. It is so important to find the right partner in life, someone who will stick by you in your decisions, someone who wants to be a TEAM with you. You really gotta find someone who loves you for you, and who also will be reliable to wipe your ass when you're old, and who will be there when you die.
When I myself got married, I knew I was making a mistake. Nothing went right. My dress was hand made for me, it was gorgeous, but everyone who we asked to stand? The girls complained they couldn't afford a hundred dollar gown, my ex's brothers didn't like me, so we just had a maid of honor and a best man. The cake wasn't tasty or moist, I didn't get to eat my whole meal, my feet were hurting, and the biggest no-brainer was my ex husband never proposed to me. When I got into trouble, he told me I was on my own. He left me behind A LOT. We were never a team.
This was supossed to be about the best part of weddings... I apologize for making it more than that.
