To My College Roommate on Her Wedding Day


Saturday is your Wedding Day. It’s a day every girl dreams of her entire life; it’s a day I’ve watched you plan every detail of for over a year now. I am so thankful I was given the chance to live with you for 2 years during college, and I am so thankful I get to stand beside you on your big day. 

I sit here and reminisce on our lifelong friendship, and I can’t help but to remember the times we spent laughing, crying, venting, but most of all, the time we spent growing closer. We sat and talked about life in 3 different apartments in those 2 years that seemed to pass by too fast. As Saturday quickly approaches, I realize our friendship will change even more than it already has, but how could it not? Just know I am happy for you as you start the journey to the rest of your life. There’s just a few things I want you to know.

1. Take it all in and just breathe. Saturday is going to be one of the happiest days of your life. It’s going to be a day filled with lots of make-up, hairspray, pictures, flowers, but most of all, joy. I hope your big day is everything you want and more.

2. Even though it will be a day filled with laughter, smiles, and joy, it’s okay to feel a little sad. As many of your closest families members enter the room where you’ll be getting ready, I’m sure you will have an overwhelming sense of sadness. I’m more than sure some tears will be shed as you think of your Poppy who isn’t here to see you, but just know he’s watching over you and smiling because you look so beautiful. It’s okay to cry Saturday because things are changing, but just know we all love you so much. 

3. Don’t forget to look back and remember your big day. As the life you and Luke live together pans out, don’t forget to reminisce on what that big day held for both of you. I’m sure he will have some stories to tell about the day long adventure all of those boys had. And I’m also sure you will have some stories to tell about what us girls did. But as you’re looking back on your wedding day, smile and laugh about it. It’s one of the happiest days you will spend together. 

4. It’s all about you. It’s easy to get caught up in the stress this day holds, but in the end, it’s all about you and Luke. All of your family and friends are there to celebrate your life and your love together. 

For now, just relax and try not to stress. Saturday is closer than we think. I can’t wait to see all of your hard work and planning pay off to become your very own Disney fairytale. I can’t wait to stand by your side. 

Here’s to your forever love!

I love you,
