5 Cheesy Things That I Will Be Doing At MY Wedding Because It’s MY Day

I'm a hopeless romantic so why wouldn't my wedding be cheesy?


Weddings are supposed to be the day where you and your significant other are going all out on how in love you are with each other. I mean it's literally a celebration of you and your soon to be Mr or Mrs, so why is it that people get all worked up over how over the top and gushy wedding are? As a bride who is currently planning her wedding (with the help of my trusty fiance because yeah, I guess he has the right to his opinions on what happens that day too) and a person who is just a serious hopeless romantic when it comes to anything. I plan on being all up in my feelings and making sure that you all, (as in those select few who are invited) get a healthy dosage of cheesy love.

1. Writing and reciting our own vows.

Yes, you better believe that I will be writing my own vows and then after I walk down the aisle to stand next to the love of my life, I will be reciting them. Though I can't guarantee you I'll cry because I am not a cryer when it comes to expressing my emotions. I can guarantee you that my vows will be long, filled with my heartfelt emotions and will either make you shed a tear or totally vom. Tissues and barf bags will be provided.

2. Our love story on display.


If you couldn't already tell, ya girl is a fanatic for romance. So, as someone who loves love and is also in love, you better believe I am going to showcase it. You know that table that is normally loaded with pictures of the bride and groom? Take out the pictures and replace it with my very long and detailed summary of our love story. I promise not to make it into an entire novel but, you'll definitely need a least five minutes to read it.

3. Unity ceremony.


Right as we are exchanging our personal vows and saying our "I'Do's," we'll be having a unity ceremony. Though we haven't decided between a ring exchange, tying the knot or a beading ceramic, whichever one we choose will be lead with super cheesy words to represent the meaning behind our union.

4. Love letter exchange.

Lovers have been exchanging letters ever since man finally created the alphabet. So on my wedding day, of course, right before we both walk down the aisle we'll be writing and exchanging love letters. It's a romantic way to wish each other one last claim of personal love right before you have to showboat it to your guests. It's cheesy and cute and will probably make us run down the aisle, not walk.

5. First and last dance.


You know how couples normally have one song and one dance that is all to themselves? Well, I'm having two. The very first dance of the night, we'll be swaying to the most romantic song ever to be created by man. Then towards the end of the night, we'll be closing things with a final dance to the second most romantic song known to man.

Regardless of what anyone has to say about how cliché or cheesy certain wedding rituals are, remember that the day is about you and your future Mr. or Mrs. Bask in all things you and them, be with each other and show the world that your love is everlasting.

To My Future Sister-In-Law On Her Wedding Day

I hope you know you're dearly loved.

From overly detailed text messages to surprising dress orders from India and nights spent watching mom make flower décor of all styles, we have been preparing for this day for quite some time. Honestly, the wait has seemed longer than the seven months it has taken to get us here. When you asked me to be your bridesmaid a few months ago, I was a little unsure on how to best encourage you through all things wedding related, but now I consider myself a pro at helping relieve the jitters you never even had.

After all of the waiting and planning, all of the love, time and money that has went into getting you to this moment, the day has arrived! So, here’s my letter to you, the deserving and beautiful bride, on your wedding day.

In a little while, you’ll be exchanging vows with the man who made you a mother, and the one that was always worth fighting for. You’ll probably mess up some words and cry when he recites his, but you’ll cheer when it’s all over. At the end of the night, you’ll be way too happy to take your shoes off, and you’ll be getting congratulations messages for weeks from now. I hope that in every second of the day, you see just how much beauty is infused into the time.

I hope you know you’re loved always, by me, your family, God, and (of course) your new husband. I hope you know we’ll always be rooting for you. I hope you recognize the perfect fit that your mister is, and I hope you know that I smile when I see the two of you together. I pray that the love you two have will be passed down to your children’s children as a testament for what the Lord created love to be.

You deserve nothing less than the compassionate, careful, detail- oriented man than you are getting today. You know I’d give you the whole world if I could, but since God’s a better cupid than I’ll ever be, He set you up years ago to meet the man that you would never really be able to get over. I’m thankful that watching your story unfold has taught me what loyalty, unconditional love, and an intentional relationship looks like. I am in awe of the support system that y’all have for one another, and despite being entirely different, your love is still the same. I give all glory to our Creator for the success that I have so joyfully been able to watch you two accomplish. Today is such a celebration of that, and I hope you never forget the feeling of walking down the aisle to make a covenant to your man and God in front of so many people who will always root for you.

In life, I know there will be days that you feel lost, like you have no idea why you did this in the first place, and like no one appreciates the effort you put in daily. These times will come not because you’re not in the situation God ordained for you, and not because you haven’t given it your all. They’ll come when you have been stretched thin and when other things in your life are going astray. Please know during these times that the Lord has not abandoned you, He is only testing you. I hope that you will take time to love yourself, and that you will allow yourself to feel loved by others, no matter how unworthy you feel. Look at those that have done it before you and take a breath. Sweet wife, sweet mama, you’ll do just fine.

Here’s to the beginning of a new chapter, learning to perfect signing new names after yours, and to every beautiful thing that is sure to come from your union with a man who loves you dearly. Thank you for allowing me to love you, to celebrate with you, and to stand alongside you today and forever. I am so grateful for your heart, and to be a part of your family. I’ll forever cherish the moments (and smiles and pictures and tears) that are to come.
