by Unknown at Crown of Beauty Magazine – Altogether Lovely
Editor’s note: This one was hard to figure out what to quote. The beginning where the author calls blogging ‘edgy’. Blogging has been going on since the beginning of the internet, so it’s old hat now. Her gushing over the quicky engagement and marriage of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard. Or her calling Taylor Swift’s music ‘Old School’ and saying it put her in a ‘nastalic’ mood. But the most disturbing part of this piece that sounds like it was written by a giggling twelve year old is her insistence that getting married is the BIG GOAL of every girl’s life. This is what happens when you isolate a homeschooled girl severely, you limit their dreams, clipping their wings into only having the tiniest of circles. Sad wasted potential that is dead on arrival.
There are many things in life worth writing about and celebrating, but as a girl, WEDDINGS are at the very top of that list.
What could possibly be sweeter than the innocence of a pure white bride, floating down the aisle, preparing to remove the veil and gaze lovingly into the eyes of the man she will marry, vowing her unwavering faithfulness until deaths bitter parting?! Gahhh! Somebody grab the Kleenex box!

“Women plan weddings, and men plan wars.”
This statement is so true. While men are wired to strategically move forward and conquer the world, women were created to stop and smell the roses, gather an armful of flowers, then decorate the whole house with them! We as women add so much sparkle and beauty, and weddings are like our ultimate outlet for that fun feminine side! I believe it is because God absolutely adores weddings!
After the decorations are finished, and the fancy pageantry is all said and done…the core of a beautiful wedding is the emotional triumph we feel, when we see that true love wins. Our hearts soar when we connect the words of 1 Corinthians 13:4-6 with the character of Christ…..
……Well, Jill and Derick proved all the haters wrong.
The starstruck lovers made it to their special day without breaking their self-imposed courtship rules, and because of it, their wedding was absolutely, and altogether lovely.
