I have dreamt of my wedding since I was a little boy. One morning, when I was 4 years old, I woke up to get ready for school and I told my mum about the dream I had the night before. I was so excited because the dream was very elaborate. It was a dream of my wedding.
My 4-year old mind left no stone unturned in imagining the grandest of weddings. It was not a traditional wedding and thinking back, it must have been influenced by the movies I watched around the time. I wore a black tuxedo with a pristine white shirt and a tie (I can’t remember the colour or style anymore lol). No detail was spared as I also dreamed of the music that was played as my bride walked down the aisle to me.
It was the start of a good day for a 4-year old.
Shortly afterwards, we were invited to a wedding and despite my mum’s pleas to eat before attending the ceremony, the excitement of attending a wedding made me lose my appetite. Long story short, food finished before it got to me. I was really upset and hungry, and because the ceremony was lengthy, I managed to eat only when I got home in the evening. I was disappointed and my interest in weddings would change for a very long time.
For over 15 years after that, I attended only a handful of weddings (less than
- and since I became an adult, I have attended only about 5 weddings. I even decided not to have a(n elaborate) wedding. I just did not see the need. I don’t know but I think the trauma I suffered as a child at that wedding really messed with me.
Gladly, things are changing. I have attended two weddings in the last two years that have made me see things differently but the most recent was yesterday, the wedding of Thelma and Beisha Bellgam.
The #BTFromDay1 wedding was so beautiful. The reception venue decoration made my heart melt. The music was sensational. The atmosphere was beautiful and the generally, the feel was great. The wedding party though, it was turntttttt! God!
So, yeah, I want a wedding. I really do. I want a wedding party with good music, great food and drinks and stunning venue décor. I want everything to be perfect and I now look forward to the day. I look forward to the day I become my woman’s husband in the presence of friends and family in a grand occasion.
