A Ring and A Promise
A wedding is a time of joy and union. Two families, along with friends and relatives, congregate to celebrate the love between a man and a woman. To be married is to give yourself to another person whole-heartedly. Weddings celebrate the oldest union beginning in Genesis 2:23-24 when it was written that woman was made and was “now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called “woman,” for she was taken out of man.’ For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.”
Marriage is a special bond and a wedding is a special time in each participant’s life. Whether you are the groom, the bride, a member of the bridal party, or a family member, it is a fun and important time. For everyone though, there are some things to remember that I have learned recently. First off, no matter what she says or tells you to do, the bride is always right. Her wedding is her special day, make sure it is exactly as she wants it. Second, do your best to cooperate and help out with anything you are able to. Almost every task will have someone assigned to do it but there is always somewhere to help. This puts less stress on the people in charge and helps everyone to relax and have a good time. Third, and most important, have fun. After making sure the bride and groom are having a good time, it is important to relax and have fun yourself. When the bride sees everyone enjoying themselves, she can too.
The union between a man and woman is a special thing and should be treasured like nothing else. The same dedication you have to your faith should be given to your significant other and the wedding ceremony is an important aspect to this dedication. Giving yourself to your husband or wife is similar to giving yourself and your life to God.
