I suggest this post by velz meshugenar in the ‘letter to chasson’ thread. I don’t know how to link it.

My dear beloved chosson,

I cannot believe that we are finally about to embark on our lives together. I am so lucky to be able to marry someone who fit all of the criteria on my checklist, even the part about being tall, which I was embarrassed to tell the shadchan. Well, I really didn’t tell her that because Duvid Weissman wasn’t engaged yet then, and he’s short. But once he was engaged and I knew that I wouldn’t have a shot at his family’s money anymore, I was hoping that you would be tall. Not only that, when I showed my friends pictures of you before the vort they are all so jealous! Even after we got engaged you got me the best jewelry, better than any of my friends got from their chassanim. Except for the earrings, which I left home when I would get together with them.

Anyway, this is totally bashert, and I hope that you are as excited as I am. I want you to know that I plan to have a TON of shalom bayis and as my kallah teacher and rebbetzin both advised me, I am not going to try to be your mashgiach so you are going to have to be very careful to be on top of your own ruchnius. Like no missing shachris or seder or anything, because if you do, it won’t be my place to say anything and then it will ruin our shalom bayis, which I may have mentioned is going to be AMAZING, or at least better than Ruchel and her husband Yanky’s, which is going to be hard because they really seem to get along.

Anyway, I have to go because I need to get my nails done so that they will be ready for the re-doing before the wedding. I am getting them done in baby powder white with a tiny tint of pink so that my gown will look whiter.


Your beloved Chana Pretzel
