If You Want To Know If He Loves You So . . .

It’s the final countdown!  Three days to the wedding.

Most brides have gone zilla by this point, grooms are usually a fifth through a bottle of jack, and their family and friends are running for the hills just hoping for this day to come and pass.  Allowing their otherwise cheery friends to return to normal.

Yes, I am freaking out a little.  There are a LOT of details to finish out.  But it is an excited freak out.

That’s not what this post is about.  I know, bad blogger, no weird lead ins. This post is about how you know he loves you.

Ben’s only requirement for our wedding was the traditional service at the church he grew up in.  That’s it. Nothing else.  After discovering that the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to was not approved for the service, I then added a dance requirement to our list.

If you know Ben, you know that I have just asked him to wrangle the moon.  What you may not know is that we are both introverts.  Ben is very shy and personal, and I generally do not like being around people.  So, what have I done?!

I insisted that we not be like every other prom, married couple, or otherwise introverted non-dancers, and just sway to the music. I want a real dance, twirling included.  I also made this demand about a year ago, when we started planning this wedding for realsies.

Ben, being the amazing person he is, tracks down educational videos for ballroom dancing on youTube. He studies them, re-watches them, shares them with me, makes me watch them.  Then promptly re-arranges our entire house so we can practice dancing.

That’s how you know he loves you.  He went above and beyond to learn to do something just for me to make our already special day even more special.
