A simple but profound way to get the best out of your wedding day
What is the best advice I can give you as a couple on how to enjoy your wedding day? Try this simple but powerful tip: make sure that you make a time apart on this busy day where just the two of you are able to spend some time together. You will be caught up in the whirlwind of the day, and you’ll be happy you took some moments just to be together and to look on at what is happening: you’re getting married and it’s a momentous occasion.
It’s not just a question of seizing the day but savoring it, too! You want to be able to take it all in and feel the thrill of it and share it with the person you’ve chosen to spend your life with. You’ll get much more out of your day if you can take some time out with your partner.
This is all to do with being focused, rather than allowing yourself to be distracted by everything that’s going on around you.
That’s maybe why many couples like me to read the following passage to them:
Before I pronounce you married partners, I have one thing I want you to do. Your wedding day is one that seems to fly. It’s a day filled with emotion, friends, rings and dances. Many people remember how fleeting their own wedding day was. So I want you to take a few seconds to look into each others’ eyes…
Think about the happiness that you are feeling in this place, in this moment.
Now, I want you to think about your life together in twenty years. Where are you? What are you doing? We all know that your visions of the future are not identical, but always complimentary. John Lennon once said, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together, THAT is reality.”
That new reality starts Now.
You can see how important it is just to take the time to savor what’s going on around you. Many couples choose to come to Thailand precisely so they can immerse themselves in this beautiful, relaxed country. Your wedding day here is going to reflect that beauty. Spend some moments alone with your partner to wind down and enjoy what’s going on – it’s guaranteed you’ll remember and treasure such moments.
Happiness comes from being focused on your day, rather than being distracted by it!
