It’s ur wedding JJJ lelelelelelelleelleliiiiisssssssshhhhh! I know it’s going to be zlaghitless, rizless, Zaffehless, barzehless, 3aj2aless but more importantly it’ll be mimiless…Mimiless only regarding the physical presence of hers. Shou bedna fiyya now… I keep remembering that cute photo of yours when u were about 5 wearing a white dress with kashkash and a hat. You were dressed as a 3arous and on the 16th you are one.

I can picture it all in my head. I know what ur invitation card looks like, I know the style of ur dress, hair, bouquet, shoes, wedding cake, wedding theme song & the restaurant (not sure if u’ll hold that purse). If I close my eyes maybe I can gather the pieces of puzzle in one lovely portrait: You.. 3arusetna l 7elweh.. I can see ur blue eyes turning a bit grey as a reflection of the silver fur on ur shoulders & the cloudy weather. Hani ur little cousin will carry the rings on the cushion and he’ll look adorable as ever. Your mum will feel proud although m3assbeh mnl stress of the wedding & of the wedding preparations, she’ll have tears in her eyes that she’ll try her best to hide as she will be remembering every step and major stops in your life like that Nido commercial. Your khollow will guide ur steps inside the hall and u’ll be walking so slowly with a thousand idea whirling in ur mind but it’ll all freeze at the sight of Tommy in a suit suffocating from the tie despite the cold weather. The fire that u r in temper, and the ice that he is, will make the most beautiful reaction that will make u both feel at ease, and it would ignite magical fireworks all around you…

I know that at occasions like these, sweet wishes flood from everyone but this time it feels a lot different to me. It’s like ur wedding is one of my own accomplishments that I am mostly proud of, although I had no hand in it whatsoever… the idea of u getting married is like that of waiting for the 3id after ages of fasting. Nothing can wipe that goofy smile off my face…  I woke up 3ala l salat l Fajr which is 4:30 am exactly 11:30 ur time when the ceremony starts. I looked up at the sky that was cloudy with rtoubeh clouds. I sent u a discrete zalghouta and blew u 4 kisses…

    we arrived my mum and i to the group of huddled guests on the green hill near the clock tower overlooking the ocean all around. i was running ahead of her like a crazy old man. with my veil over my face. my fur on my shoulders my dress like a madame, my hair so stiff with hairspray it could snap, my earrings so heavy they compressed my neck, my shoes so high i could touch the sky…and my sunglasses on. i ran uphill to meet him waiting there for me halfway and my mum half the way behind me. he reached me before i could reach him though and edem the whole crowd he lifted my veil and kissed me like a thirsty nomad then he saw my mum climbing up in her shiny pink and he sta7a and said "hello ikram" and bent down to hug and kiss her. my mum laughed nervously and said "you kiss Mayssa later," and he went red. we reached the clocktower where everyone was standing in their best clothes under the sunny sky and clapping with bright smiles on their faces and cheering for us. I\’ve never been the centre of attention but now i know why ppl like it so much. it felt soooooo good. everyone was standing exactly where they should….as if they\’d been given a script in advance and they\’d already memorised everything off by heart. we stood, he and i, in front of the celebrant who gave a short speech about him and me…then he said his vows to me which he read off a card from his pocket. when my turn came to give my vows i told them i hadnt written anything and i have no card to read from so i will say whatever comes out from my mouth…they all laughed and said i was very brave. i said to them "he\’s the brave one" and winked lol thay all laughed…i said what i felt like saying. it was sincere and straight from the heart and he cried. the celebrant told him to put the ring on finger and we didnt know which finger to put it on so we asked the audience lol and they all gave different answers. it was funny and very natural. the celebrant played YELLOW…LOOK AT THE STARS LOOK HOW THEY SHINE FOR YOU AND EVERYTHING YOU DO…the stars yesterday were the loving faces of all our friends and family. the faces whose eyes were smiling and whose hearts were beaming at us…ive never ever felt so loved.then off to the restaurant we walked like brightly coloured beads rolling back down the hill….
