4 Must-Know Things No One Tells You About Your Wedding Day

Oh, sure. You’ve gotten PLENTY of advice about your wedding day! So much so that you’re a bit sick of it and you’re pretty sure you couldn’t know another thing. Even still, there are things no one tells you, and those tidbits are usually the only things you really need to hear. Here are 4 must-know things no one tells you about your wedding day.

Something will go wrong…and you won’t care.

Your great-niece will get sick at her table, you’re dress won’t close properly and you’ll need to safety pin it, and someone will sit in the wrong place. We work and plan and plan and work, but when it comes down to it, you won’t care. Once the party’s on, it’s on. You’ll embrace the good and the bad, and it will all come out as one of the best days of your life.

It doesn’t all feel that different to be married.

When you arrive back at your hotel room after the wedding, you’ll expect to feel new and, well, married! But everything feels pert-near the same. And that’s okay. Which brings us into the next point…

There are usually post-wedding blues.

It’s natural. You planned your wedding for months and spent a ton of money on one day. Now it’s over. And you don’t even feel all that different (as mentioned above)! But this, too, shall pass. Go, enjoy your honeymoon. This isn’t the end. It’s a whole new beginning!

Your wedding day isn’t the best day of your life.

Say whaaa?? I know. But trust me. It will be the next day. And the day after that. And the day after that. And two, four, ten years down the road. Your wedding is an immensely special day, for sure. And it is and should be one of the best days of your life.

But the day you munch popcorn in bed at noon while dreaming about your future will be the best day. Or the day you become parents. Or the day you, as a family of now four (or three or six), set up a tent in your living room and watch movies till the kids fall asleep and you and hubby sneak back to your bedroom and…well, you get the idea. But really, the best day of your life will be when you look over at your spouse, wrinkled and gray and just as hot as the day you got married, and he smiles and says, “I’m so glad I married you.” Your heart will explode and you will think, “This is the best day of my life.”

Your wedding day doesn’t hold a tapered candle to living life married. And that’s a good thing.
