I'm getting married in 3 days, so technically I haven't had my wedding yet, but I figured I'd jump on the band wagon and start with a Wedding Wednesday post.  I can't promise that I will post every Wednesday with wedding stuff, but I'm here today, so that's a start.  ;)

I was talking to my mom the other day and it occurred to me that I never dreamed of my wedding when I was a little girl.  I just always had a pretend husband (Jay Barker) and lots of babies.  So I guess you could say I always dreamed of my marriage.  Even into my teens and early twenties, I always dreamed of being someone's wife.  Now that my wedding is planned and everything is taken care of, I am still dreaming about being Ben's wife.

There are so many things I could talk about from the past 15 months but at the same time, I have no words.  It's funny and downright ironic-  I, Meighan, have no words.  Ha!

All I can think is that this can't be real life.  Even after all the planning, the countless emails, the showers, the payments, the house full of gifts that continue to come in (we are so blessed!), the discussions, the excitement, the nervous stomach (oh yes, that is happening and has been a week long event), the bachelor and bachelorette parties (best beach trip ever), and the last minute preparation...   I still can't make myself believe that in three short days I will be Ben's wife.

The endless outpouring of love and support from family, friends, coworkers, bloggers, etc... has been amazing.  I'm once again finding myself surrounded by amazing people and I could not be more thankful.  There are no words to describe my love and appreciation during such a joyous time in mine and Ben's lives.  So thank you, thank you, thank you!

and with that being said... 
the next time you hear from me I will be a Mrs!

like a river flows
surely to the sea
darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand
take my whole life, too
for I can't help
falling in love with you

Marriage is seriously the best thing on earth, and I can't wait to be along for the ride as you guys dive in head first!! I'm praying fervently for your wedding day, that everything goes as planned or better!

    I got two amazing pieces of advice the week before my wedding. 1 - at every stop, take a mental image. Remember the smells, the lighting, the feeling right before you walk down the aisle, when you see Ben for the first time, etc. Its a whirlwind, but stopping for those small moments here and there really help you to remember it all. 2 - Remember, being married to the most amazing man at the end of the day is what matters! Love you, sweet friend!!
