I don't think there's any better way to calm my nerves and to prepare me for what's ahead than to say a prayer with the most important women in my life. At my sister's wedding, the pastor came in after we were all ready and said a prayer for my sister and BIL and their marriage. It was so touching, and so calming right before the ceremony. I'm hoping our officiant will be able to do the same thing right before we all walk down the aisle. If not, I think it would be just as touching for my mom and FMIL to pray. I can't wait to get pictures like this - they're all so full of emotion:
(I love this shot of someone catching her tears! That's actually one of my friends from high school - Wasn't she a gorgeous bride?)
And how cute would it be if the guys joined in?
I'm really looking forward to a moment of prayer before one of the biggest moments of my life. I'm sure I'll cry, but it will be totally worth it!
Are you doing anything similar?
