June is typically the most popular wedding month.
This year it seems that May was more popular among the people that we know.
The wedding day is so exciting.
I enjoy seeing the excited bride in the dress of her choosing.
I like to watch the grooms expression as the bride enters.
I like to hear what music the couple choose (usually).
I like to see the "unity" object (not just a candle anymore).
The dresses, the colors, the flowers, the vows ...
The day is just exciting.
Weeks later, I enjoy seeing the pictures.
Off the couple goes.
There is wedding travel.
There is a new residence to turn into a home.
There are presents to unpack and thank you notes to write.
And then, we are on to the next thing ...
and the bride ...
she has entered a new world.
Perhaps she has left the hustle of college,
the bustle of the work environment,
maybe she has chosen to be a stay-at-home wife ...
and it is quiet and sometimes lonely.
Perhaps you are a "seasoned" wife and have forgotten those days,
but can I encourage to look for that "forgotten" bride?
Maybe she has asked if she can help and you don't want to "bother" her.
Invite her over to help even if you don't need the help.
Invite her to do an activity with your children.
See if she would like to join you on an outing.
