I want it to be a surprise, when you slowly get down on one knee. I want to look down on your smiling face as you say the words that only you could think of to describe us. I want to see the ring, the one that you pick out that is especially made for me. You know exactly what I want, even if I don’t.
I want to know the story behind the ring, the one that fits perfectly on my finger. I want to know how you planned the proposal; how hard it was to keep it a secret. I want you to tell me the beginning of it all, right down to the moment you did it. I want to know how you’re feeling.
I want to go try on wedding dresses and cry when I find the right one. I want to have my Pinterest board come to life. I want to take your breath away as soon as I start walking towards you.
I want to walk down the aisle and only see you, forgetting about all the people that are looking my way. I want to hear the song playing – the one that matches the feelings that we both have in that moment. All I can see is you.
I want to write the perfect vows, ones that both encompass my emotions throughout our relationship and our day. I want the words to flow off of my lips and find their way to your heart. I want to hear yours because I know the moment you start I will be a hot mess. In those moments when your lips are moving, as you glance up at me, everything will become real.
This is the beginning of our always.
I want to pick out the best cake to smash all over your face. I want the icing to stain your face and laugh at you. I want to hear how much everyone loved the dinner, how beautiful the decor is, how the wedding was everything and more.
I want to dance with you to our song, the one that we only understand. I want the lyrics to flow and the melody to move us around the floor. I want to have our photos taken to hang all over our walls. I want the video to perfectly sum up our day.
I want the room to be filled with people that we love, that understand that this is our special day. I want there to be laughter and tears of joy. I want there to be so much love that it is overwhelming.
I want to marry you.
I want to marry you even if none of the above even happens.
I want to marry you even if we decide to not have a day just for us. Every single day with you is enough for me, I don’t need all of the glitz and glam to make it official. Our love will still be felt to those around us even if there is no ceremony.
I want to marry you because of how safe I feel each night laying beside you. Because you can make me laugh even when all I want to do is yell at you. Because I want to spend the rest of my life waking up next to you.
I want to marry you because you have taught me how to live life to the fullest, how not to take everything so seriously. Because you continue to encourage, support, and love me. Because you remind me of how beautiful I am and you give me every reason to wake up with a smile on my face.
I want to marry you because you are the only one I see at the end of the road. Because you are my best friend and greatest fan.
