wedding song by mpeonies

21 Mar

Amy could not help but wonder if she was making a mistake. Her dress was beautifully laced and ornate, painted the delicate shade of white that she had always dreamt of. A few doors away, there was a room filled with violet and white freesias awaiting. It was a near embodiment of her perfect wedding.

And yet, the tune of Bryan Adams’ Everything I Do would not leave her mind. It would be playing at the ceremony. It was her husband’s choice, and he had declared that he would make that decision, as Amy had already gone as far as to make the rest. But Amy had always hoped it would be Celine Dion’s Because You Loved Me, the melodious and profound voice soothing the crowd of people.

She shuffled back and forth across the lush red carpet, being careful not to drag the bottoms of her dress. Occasionally, she stomped her feet and shook her head dramatically, as if trying to knock the song out of her mind.

“No no no. Because you loved me! It has to be that!” she exclaimed. “What is he thinking? How can he make such an important decision and fail so badly? It’s simple! Celine Dion!”She rammed her white heel into the carpet, only to have it slide and slip. Falling on her behind, she pulled on the ends of her hair and began to let out quiet cries.

Amy turned to glare into a tall mirror behind her, when the sudden sight of a little girl in a pink dress startled her. A bouquet of flowers was plopped within the girl’s tiny, plump hands. She was giggling, slowly tilting her head to the side, as if in deep thought.

“And my mommy calls me spoiled.”

    I can imagine Amy’s embarrassment! The little girl highlights how ridiculous Amy is being beautifully.

      Another very well written story. I would go with Celine too. It’s not even close.
      When I was married, though, we went with Barbara.

    I must admit I now HATE the song we chose for our first dance. I cringe whenever I hear it on the radio and if we ever renewed our vows I would never play it for our friends. It is simply too sappy and embarassing — Richard Marx “Right here waiting for you”. What on earth was I thinking?
    At the time , the choice of a song for our first dance seemed like so important. It is amazing how a wedding can make you crazy.
