Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog and a new post about all things wedding, post-wedding, etc. It’s been 3 months since my wedding!! Time flew by. As you can already tell from the title, this post will be about some untold confessions of what it’s like to be a newlywed. This should be super fun, but before I jump into the good stuff, I’ll be sharing one tip today for my soon-to-be brides!
You’re about to be a bride? Read this part.
Okay, I get it you’re excited, nervous, pumped, anxious, and you have ALL THE FEELS. Well, you should! I’ve put together some tips for you so that you’ll have the absolute best wedding day. However, they won’t be in this post. Only ONE TIP I’ll share with you. Sidebar: The next wedding post will be the rest!
Tip 1: Choose your bridal gang wisely.
Sneak Peek of my QUEENS: Shenelle, Akilah, Akesia, Mercy, Julia H. & Julia M. + my flowergirls/boys Kailin, McKenzie-Rae, Matthias & Jai (ring-bearer).Be hella choosy with your close company! The ladies you choose are a representation of you. They could be your closest friends or family, or in some cases someone who has left a huge impact on your life. For me, I wanted to have genuine people who know me, love me, supported me, and been there for me on my good and bad days. It doesn’t matter the number you choose, but just make sure you’re not choosing people just to be “space fillers” or just because they will make your pictures look great. Make sure they are your real friends, a real bond, because it’s pretty embarrassing choosing someone, announcing it, then letting that person go before the wedding day comes. When I tell you people will notice, THEY NOTICE because they’re nosy. More importantly, you want your day to be perfect so choose people you know will do any and everything to make sure that happens for you.
** More tips coming in the next wedding post! Stay tuned.
Confessions of a Newly WED. (This should be pretty interesting…) Here’s some lines straight from the chest.
The first confession is that… these aren’t confessions. These are ‘my truths’.
As a newlywed, we believe (wives I’m speaking for us all), that we are our husbands everything and they should treat us as such. —boldfaced? YES.
Don’t follow my husbae unless I give you permission. *CHUCKLES, but very serious*
To my husbae, get use to that hot water when you shower with me, I ain’t changing it!
At work, I flash my ring (on purpose) when people look at me like I’m a child because of my babyface *rolls eyes*. I’m grown ma’am/sir.
I thought my ring would stop the thirsty dudes from attacking, but they are ruthless. They still trying. Lord send help!
Yes, we wives get extra wild, extra freaky, extra everything when we get that ring on our finger. We don’t care about no one’s opinions. Period. (I speak for me)
When husbae and I aren’t talking, at night I cuddle with him anyways on purpose…and he cuddles back *evil laugh*.
My husbae is better at the silent treatment than me, but I’ll soon LEVEL UP!
I miss coming home and just going to my bed and nap. Now I find myself always doing something around the house.
I thought my momma was my biggest fan when I used to cook, but my husbae actually is. (He gets major cool points + extras *wink wink*)
ABOUT 10,000 people asked me “How’s married life?” so far & it’s totally cool with me (sarcastic voice haha). TBH (To be honest), if it was terrible and I said it was terrible, what would be their response I wonder? Hahaha.
Married life is for learning, loving, adjusting, assembling, cooperating and head-bumping.
I want to do everything with my husbae and I have no shame in that.
I now feel like I’m my husbae’s bodyguard FOR LIFE. You come at him, you come at me. Period Pooh.
I have experienced being home two nights without my husbae and I am terrified. He better not let it happen again. (Check me again next year…I’ll probably have a different answer haha)
The art of communication is important. Still learning and unlearning daily.
“Don’t go to bed angry”…still learning that one. I haven’t mastered it yet.
I miss being a girlfriend. Fewer responsibilities *chuckles*. Shh Don’t tell my husbae.
Lastly, we aren’t perfect, but we’re imperfectly perfect together.
–Wives, what’s your “confession”? Leave it in the comments!
Here’s a few memes that also sums up my life as a newlywed. Prepare to die.
