The wedding day of a woman is supposed to be one of the happiest days of her life and regardless of all the pre-wedding stress that come with preparations, the arguments that ensue from disagreements, the calming of nerves with relatives and friends, the walking on egg shells with disgruntled mums, the throwing of fits by bridesmaids, the excitement of choosing fabrics with loved ones, the thrill of shopping with mum, the managing of budgets by dad, the seeking of Panadol or Aspirin to cure headaches, the prayer and fasting of parents, the bride’s targeting of goals with diet fads, the groom’s sleepless nights, the apprehension and worry of the parents, regardless, of all these factors...everything vanishes and is replaced by the ultimate exhilarating, feeling of euphoria when the bride is walked up the aisle to meet her man!
