Marriage to me is so much more than a fancy-schmany wedding day. It isn't about the cake, the dress (mine is still hanging up at my mom's... right where I left it after the wedding) or the cutesy photos (although, they are a lovely keepsake).
Marriage is what comes after
It's two people creating a life for themselves; lovingly, respectfully and thoughtfully.
It's having the most desirable person in the world as your best friend.
It's sharing your life with another (and maybe add a few more to the mix?)
You might blow away your guests with your impressive style and awesome taste... but at the end of the day, you're not going home with them.
