~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
it has been said, that if you ask a person what their LEAST favourite part of a wedding is, 9 times out of 10, they will say speeches. i can't promise this statistic is true, or has been proven in anyway, as it was said by one of our mc's chris, but he is more confident about this then anything.
i however, disagree completely.
my MOST favourite part of a wedding, is the speeches. i love the idea that they are written with care, (usually), said with heart (usually) and are one of those few times in life when you can say how you really feel about someone, and not feel self-conscious about it, or worry that you are coming off too mushy or lovey dovey (usually). it's your moment to say the things you might not normally say, to those who mean something to you, on one of the most important days of their life.
i know this isn't everyone's cup of tea-in fact paul is dreading saying a speech more than anything he has ever had to do in his entire life. part of me wants to put the kid out of his misery and tell him to just scrap the whole idea....and the other part feels like you only get to do this once; make the most of it. i on the other hand have been planning my speech for years. lol. every time i think of something i want to say to him, or our wedding party, or our family, i write it down, and i am really excited to take all my love notes, and put them together to tell a story.
each person in our wedding party has offered to speak, and i am so eager to hear what they have to say. knowing them, there will be lots of laughs, and lots of love. and although i am not expecting anything in particular, i know this will be an emotional moment during the day, and i am so ready for it.
ps-two weeks to go. really?
