    How can I best prepare for the most important day of my life? I don’t want to waste it!


    First step is finding someone to marry.

    What’s the point of finding someone to marry if you’re not prepared to marry them?


    Here’s something to consider, and I say this based on my own experience as a choson all those years ago and the experience of marrying off four children. The wedding day, the chasana, belongs to your parents. You know, the ones who bore you, cared for you, the ones who sat with you when you were sick, who helped you with your homework, who sacrificed to send you to sem. Yes, those parents. The chasana is their day, the reward for their work and sacrifice. You and your choson ( I assume you’re a woman) have the rest of your lives. Don’t fergin your parents one day.

    That’s a nice attitude for the chosson and kallah to take, but a selfish and dangerous one for the parents to take.


    Popa- I found him.

    D.Y.- What makes you think I’m not prepared for marriage?

    Redleg- Who says I have parents? And if I do, how does your answer help me know what to do for my day?? Are you saying I should do nothing other than smile at my parents? I mean, come on.


    Pray that you build a ??? ???? ??????, Do ????? if you have ever done ?????

    Daven for your single friends, for the childless and for the sick.

    There are excellent Kallah class teachers out there.. Find one that fits your direction, calling..

    (haven’t received your invitation yet)


    there’s a guide called “My simcha guide” which has a checklist of what you need to do to prepare. google it, hatzlacha and mazel tov 🙂


    Daven that Hashem should answer all your tefillos and bakashos l’tova throughout your life together ad me’ah v’esrim shana. (Not just your tefillos on yom ha’chupah, but your tefillos even after.)


    To everybody above, the question was how to prepare for the wedding, not how to prepare for marriage.

    from Long Island

    It depends on what time the wedding is. You will need to pack up everything you will need for the wedding, shoes, jewelry, etc & a bag for that night. Sleep in late, relax, daven with kavanah.

    Try to find time to something with your Mom & Sisters, get a manicure, pedicure.

    It takes hours to get ready, hair, makeup, dress.

    You will have your shomeret with you. She should be a close friend. Spend some time reminicing about your life. It is a life you will be leaving behind and will be building a new one.


    Thanks FLI.

    How about spiritually?



    Whichever you are chosson or a kalloh?

    Whichever rabbi/rebintzen you studied your hadracha with should have told you everything, perhaps call him/her for a recap?
