your special day (and hers, too)

27 Jul

Chelsea Clinton is getting married this weekend, did you hear? (That’s mostly a joke. If you’re reading my wedding blog, I’m sure you’re reading a lot of wedding blogs, and people can’t stop talking about it!)

There’s been a lot of hullabaloo about where and how and who will be there, and one of the side stories is about the “other bride” who is also getting married that weekend in Rhinebeck, New York, the town where Chelsea’s wedding will likely be. See here: A lot of people are sympathetic to Miss Haddad-Friedman’s plight — the fear that perhaps the Clinton wedding will ruin her day.

The thing that occurs to me, however, is that nothing will ruin her day. There may be a few hitches and headaches leading up to the moment, but it’s still the day she’ll marry the man she loves. She’ll still have that moment when she says her vows and her man says them back to her, and they’ll remember it forever, and have amazing stories to tell. I hope she’ll soon stop thinking of the day as “hell,” and be able to enjoy.

Perhaps easier said than done, but it’s what I hope for her, for me, and for all brides. Enjoy the wedding! Congratulations! Now you’re married and you have a whole lifetime of days for other people to ruin!
