Love… is the ultimate reason for a wedding. Sometimes it may be easy to forget or loose sight of the one thing that really matters amongst all the planning, stress, money, and chaotic nature that comes with planning one of the most special and memorable days of your life.
When you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed, take a moment and read the following passage from scripture. Now, read it again and replace the word “love” with your name and/or your fiance’s name. This is a beautiful reminder of the ultimate prize.
“If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails.” – 1 Corinthians 13: 1-8a.
