It occurred to me recently that among the multitude of wedding-related decisions, there are some that rise above the rest as being decidedly worthwhile. Sometimes they are the things you think aren’t going to be a big deal, and then they are. And sometimes they are the decisions you fight for, and then they end up being just as important as you thought they were going to be. For me they were smallish things that ended up having a big impact, like deciding to abandon all of my unfinished DIY projects two days before the wedding for the sake of my sanity. Or big things that have had a lasting impression, like fighting to have both my dads walk me down the aisle.
But hindsight is 20/20. And it’s impossible to know now what decisions will matter most for you until all is said and done. That said, I think there’s a lot of power in hearing what was worth it from those of us on the other side. A little third person perspective, if you will. So today I want to open it up to the married folks within the community: what were the wedding decisions you made that ended up being most worthwhile? Alternatively, what did you fight for that just didn’t matter in the end? If we can help one wavering couple make a choice that’s right for them, then I think I can call it a win for the day.
