You all watched Sex and the City, the Movie right? Of course you did. I mean, why wouldn’t you have? For those of you then who might not have, I’m fast forwarding real quick to the get to the scene where Carrie and Big have a rehearsal dinner the night before their wedding, and after that, the girls (Carrie, Samantha , Charlotte and Miranda) go over to Charlotte’s house to have the night before slumber party. Pause.I’ve seen that scene in a lot of movies and I’ve read them in books, and I never thought anything of it, but lately, I’ve found myself talking a lot about marriage. I guess I’m at that age where that’s what we all (guys and girls) talk about, and even though I don’t think I’m going to get married, I find myself thinking about the details. My dress, my bridal party, the reception, wedding colors, the play-list, the wedding night and the honeymoon. Especially the honeymoon, but I never really thought about how I might spend the day before or the night before, until I watched Sex and The City earlier today and thought to myself “what would I do?”
I definitely wouldn’t want to do a rehearsal dinner the night before. Could we do that like, a week before? Ideally that will be the last night I see my husband to be before the wedding. You know, spend some time apart before the big day. The day before, I think, would be spent with the most important people in my life; my mum, my dad, my siblings, my best friend and whomever else I consider important at the time. It would include a massage, a manicure and pedicure, full body wax, getting my hair done and probably end with me having dinner alone in some hotel room. I would probably spend a couple of minutes on the phone with the said husband to be, and a long amount of time talking to God and praying about my marriage and future and then sleep for at least 10 hours.
That’s what I think I would do if I was to ever get married (chances are 0 to none on that count, by the way).
I want to know what you might do the night before. How would you spend your last night of freedom before marriage? I have no clue what men do, so if you are a male and reading this what would you do? And if you are married, what did you do?
I came up with a list so please feel free to just pick one, or if you have something else to add, please share.
