Your leg bounced nervously as you sat in a chair in front of the mirror while the stylist brushed through your hair. You had been waiting for this day for a year now, but it seemed as if it had come quicker than expected. All the planning and stress of the wedding was closing to an end, but the closer it got to the ceremony, the more anxious you became.
“Stop bouncing your leg like that. You’re going to make me burn your face with the iron and no one wants that on their wedding day,” chuckled the stylist as she gently curled your hair.
“Sorry, I’m just nervous. I don’t know why. I love Shawn and I definitely don’t have cold feet. This is all I’ve been waiting for for a year but I-” You rambled on until your best friend next to you finally shut you up.
“(Y/N)! Stop! You’re going to freak yourself out. This is all going to work out perfectly and it will be over soon, so just enjoy it,” your friend said as a smile grew on her face.
You nodded your head quickly, but her speech did not stop your heart from racing. You truly had no idea why you were so anxious. It felt like a mix of excitement, nervousness, and impatience all built into one knot growing in the pit of your stomach. Everyone had always told you that you will get jittery on your wedding day, but you had no idea it would feel like this.
You had drifted into your own thoughts as the stylist finished up your hair and drowned the loose curls in hair spray. The feeling of your phone vibrating in your pocket had pulled you away from your deep thoughts, making your hand rush to your pocket and pull it out. Your first thought was to turn your phone on do not disturb as to not disturb you on your wedding day, but as you read the name on the screen, you smiled when it was Shawn’s.
“So I know it isn’t allowed to see the bride on the day of the wedding, but I figured it isn’t against the rules to call?” His voice rang through your phone, making your face light up more if it was even possible.
“I don’t know, you might still be causing bad luck. But then again, I didn’t check the wedding rule book before we started this whole process,” you joked back, earning a laugh from Shawn.
“As long as I get to see you dressed in white walking down the aisle, I’d consider myself lucky no matter what,” Shawn said sweetly, making a blush rise on your cheeks. Your blush quickly disappeared as you opened your mouth to ask Shawn a question, but immediately shut it, deciding against it.
“Babe, you okay? You’re not planning on running out now are you?” Shawn laughed lightly almost as if he was afraid the answer would be yes.
“No, no, I’m okay. It’s just, do you like me?” You asked shyly, realizing how stupid it sounded when you said it out loud.
“You’re alright I guess,” Shawn replied sarcastically making you giggle quietly.
“No I mean… do you like like me?” you asked again, realizing how you sounded like a middle schooler. Shawn laughed at the other end and you could almost picture his smile as he responded to you.
“Well I asked you to marry me didn’t I? I wouldn’t want to spend the rest of my life with you if I didn’t. So yeah, I would say I like like you,” Shawn replied. The blush rose on your cheeks again as your friend called your name.
“I have to go get my make up done, but thank you for telling me that,” you thanked him.
“Any time, babe. I’ll see you tonight?” He asked like he needed a confirmation.
“All dressed in white.”
