Hey beautiful readers, It has been a while and I got sooooo much to tell you. Well based on the title of this blog, you will know it will be about… “my traditional wedding” – yes, I got married 💃 and I want to tell you about it.
So my beautiful day took place on the 4th of June 2016 and if I tell you about the preparations etc till the moment I walked in, WOW! 👰👫
I mean… for those who do not know, I am currently working two jobs (yes I am) and I asked my days of already for the friday, saturday and sunday! And because my new job is only during week days, i took the thursday off too. So I could do my last bits. Oh well I used it well, i did not sleep much because I had to pick up my friends on thursday evening who got delayed so i missed them but they did come, then friday morning too at the airport, and even at 5.45am at the busstation so I was busy! On Thursday evening I had to get my “gele” done. And by the time we got home it was almost like 1am .
My husband was also very busy for the big day so all we did was communicate through calls and whatsApp.
The day itself x,💅🏾
On the day itself, I asked the ladies who would lead me during my entrance to be there at 7am as the make up artist was meant to be there at the same time. Well knowing us some came at 7am sharp, and the rest followed by 7.45am all the ladies including the make up artist was at my place and mine too. She started with my mums make up as my mum had to be ready before me.
I asked Theresa Manso for the ladies and Sunshine Oduro for mine, my mothers and my aunties make up. So I’m total we had two ladies working on our faces.
By 9.30am we were supposed to start the traditional ceremony but we were running late. So as far as I remember I started my make up and before I knew it I had to change into my dress.
When I heard my uncle’s voice through the microphone in the living room I panicked and the next thing I knew was that I wanted to urinate. Which I could not because as the bride I am not allowed to step out of the room. So I was struggling eventually my mum came up with a plan B and I had the chance to urinate.
So around almost 11am not too sure I might be wrong, I was told to be ready because I had to reveal myself. So I called the 6 ladies in pink to come and since I was told that the house was literally full I had to inform the ladies to walk in one by one, as my plan was to let them in as two’s. So I put them in order and my sister in law being the tallest was the last person to walk in right before me.
We then got the sign to walk in, which was to the song I had chosen thanks to a dear friend of mine who literally said “this would have been my song but I will let you have the pleasure” so I used it as I loved the words of the song Sister afiaa
I was so nervous then I reached my husband go be that time lol. Well before I knew it the ceremony was over we danced a bit and loads of pictures were taken.💏💑
My thoughts on the day x
Mixed emotions, I was generally speaking very happy because most of friends and people that know me, know what I went through, what I’ve done in the past and never in a million years did I expect this to happen to me. Like two years ago I was in such a different place and look at me now, a WIFE to an amazing man, trust me the love is so DEEP! I wake up next to him now and I am over the moon. (the feeling is mutual )
And I just want to thank the man above. The Lord himself, the prayers I have done and still do. The tears I cried to the Lord not because I was unsure of unhappy but simply because I was not sure if He was truly blessing me. Not only was I happy to become a wife I was also happy to see both of our families in one room. Agreeing to one thing. My husbands family who, I appreciate especially my mother in law who has been supportive since the day we met. My wonderful parents whom sat there and with teary eyes knew their little girl has officially been taken away and is leaving to become her own wife to someone else. My other family members especially my aunts who made me cry cause of the little advise she gave me. That day was such a beautiful day I must say. And last but not least my beautiful girls whom flew from the UK I was totally honored, that they wanted to be part of this day. The “innit innit” Crew the presents I received all of them were perfect for me Nd my husband. No one thought of just me but of us BOTH.
And of course there were moments I was upset. I mean stress can cause that LOL! I also got to find out and see that NOT everyone close to you wants the best for you. You see when you are bitter and jealous do NOT forget that it will show one day. People need to pray over these spirits. People need to stop wishing people bad. It is super unbelievable how many people were actually at our big day and literally were bad-minded. I don’t have to literally approach you and ask. We both know but do not do that. Everyone deserves happiness including me. I am sorry to say but for the people who came last week and literally did not have a good heart young or old. Mum dad uncle young lady young man., I am here to inform you that MORE BLESSINGS ARE COMING OUR WAY. The Addais have big things which the devil cannot stop.
So hereby I would stop and say my last bit. We are expecting a new household hi hi, I want to keep some things to myself such as how far I am and what we will be having . All I can say is we are expanding and this is it for now. But more blessings coming our way 👶🏾
I want to encourage all young ladies especially or anyone reading this who things it’s too late to make her wish come through, too late for love, education, work or to forgive. Baby girl you can do ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST.
Do not think it is over.its not over, it is never over until God says so. I want to let all females know that it was prayers, patients, forgiveness and love which got me this far.
I had bitterness, anger, unforgiveness in me. How did I get rid of these things? Prayers I literally started mentioning names, who said I have never been jealous before ? I prayed. Anger ? I prayed. And the love came from left right and center. Unconditional love I got from my dear mother and daughter. Regardless of how messed up I was at times I knew I could count on them. Patience is what kept my husband. Anger is what I learned not to show. The bible is what is my guide. Prayers was the key to all my questions. Every night we pray and I also get something. He always reveals things to me.
I will go into my prayers in the next blog. How to say simple prayers and when are you sure that He has truly listened because we all have one prayer request which has not been answered and we are all trying to figure out why. But for now
Let me enjoy my sweet marriage and our unborn x God bless you beautiful people !🙏🏾💒
