I know by now you are all familiar with the #foreverduncan love story. I mean unless you have been hiding under a rock, it is the latest love story to take the internet by storm. Can we just say #blackloveexcellence? We’re so here for it!
So fellas, we hope that you were taking notes while your girl made you watch the video over and over again. You see it’s that simple, you love someone, you know that’s the one for you, you go ahead and sweep her off her feet. No excuses, no hesitations, no justifications. Because while you are out here waiting, someone is out there praying for the woman you have, and if you wait too long till everything is ‘right’ in your mind, you might just lose her to a man who is ready to make her his forever!
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you should just jump up and go marry the girl you’ve just been “kicking it” with from the block (unless that’s what you want), however, this level of commitment can only be done if:
1. Reaction! Reaction! Reaction!: You know your girl more than anyone (other than her bestie or mom), so when planning your special day, make sure whatever you execute is going to cause her to get the sweetest and most surprised reaction. I mean wow her, knock her off her feet, make her cry tears of joy, and let her praise Jesus till her heart's content
2. Let The #Clique Be Present: Make sure all of your loved ones, families, and friends - both old and new are present. It’s the most beautiful thing to be married with your loved one’s front and center to witness this magical moment. I mean those were the people who were there. They are the ones who knew the struggles you two had to endure and to make it this far with their support is a blessing. Having these people play a part whether big or small in your special day will for sure provide a day for an outpouring of love
3. The Details Matter! Pay Attention: Fellas, you know the nights you two would take your walks and talk about your future and possible wedding plans, and she would hint to you about what she wants and what she likes, please keep those things in mind and incorporate them into your special day. You can even let her be a part of the planning without her even knowing. For example, plan a cake making date, that way on your date you see the flavors she likes or even the style of cake she prefers. Trust me, your thoughtfulness won't go unnoticed or unappreciated.
4. Make sure you document this day!!!: it will be one of the most important days of your life that you will share with your generations to come. So from the planning, to the proposal, until the end of the wedding, record and snap as much as you can! You will look back years from now and be glad that you did just that. After all, this will be the day you will cherish foreva, eva, eva, and eva!!
In case you missed the #foreverduncan love story, here is a video recap of what went down! Enjoy!
