Miley Cyrus Discusses Weddings and Napkins–Let’s Talk Marriage!


This week, Miley Cyrus was on the Ellen DeGeneres Show discussing marriage. She talked about her wedding and what matters most to her on that day:

That’s my day and whatever I want on that day will be about me and that moment. That look of love…I don’t care what color the napkins are, to be honest. I really don’t care. (Miley Cyrus, Ellen)

Now, I’m sure most of you won’t be getting married for a while, but I bet some of you have secretly planned your wedding day, right?

It’s all about the day, the dress and the moment you walk down the aisle. And just as Cyrus described, it’s about the look your soon-to-be-husband gives you. But just remember–don’t put too much focus on the wedding and not enough on the marriage!

Unlike Cyrus, I’ve actually known girls who were more particular about the color of the napkins at their receptions than the guys they were planning to spend the rest of their lives with.

When the time comes for you to marry, remember to be more particular about your future husband than you are about your napkins. Your wedding day is an important day, but it’s not as important as your marriage. A wedding lasts a day, but your marriage will last a lifetime, God willing.

So, be honest: Have you put more thought into your wedding day than the kind of husband or marriage you hope to have in the future?

    Haha, I’ve gotten to the point of just skipping past the wedding part in my mind and wondering what it’d be like to be married to the person. Something I thought was important about my last relationship, was that I could imagine being married to my boyfriend in our early years of being married, in being middle-aged with kids, and growing old with him (not that I know anything about that). And I thought that was something special to take note of, that I really thought those things could be possible. That relationship ended up not happening the way I wanted it to, but I still hope God picks someone special for me and that we’ll be even happier together.

    It’s true though! Worry about the wedding when you’ve actually got an engagement ring on your finger. 😉 Be sure of the marriage-to-be before you’re sure of the wedding party.

    I’m sorry this is off topic, but what do you guys think of mileys hair? I thought she was gorgeous with her natural hair and the blond gave her a new look that was also very pretty. If you ask me, she went to far with this though.

      i guess i’m really saying that I think it is sad that she couldnt accept the way God made her because of the pressure coming from

        I think she probably just wanted to try a new hair color and style, I don’t think she was worrying too much about what the public thought. Personally, I’d rather stick to my natural hair color, but I think for some people, dyeing their hair is the same as getting a new haircut, you know what I mean?

    I actually was engaged at 18 because I thought that was God’s plan for me, I was sorely mistaken, but I had an entire wedding planned. I did not focus on the marriage, but on being the princess bride, you always say that this will never be you, but it is an easier trap to fall into. I was a young bride to be that was obsessed and I mean OBSESSED with wedding planning. Focus on God’s plan for you, not your plan for you!

    “That’s my day and whatever I want on that day will be about me and that moment”.They have a word for those people: BrideZilla. I wish girls would stop focusing on their weddings being all about them, them, them! After all, it’s TWO people getting married, not one. T.M. Gaouette, you are right about the importance of marriage; I just realized that marriage is more important about the wedding day not just because of the qualities of the future husband, but also because God intends marriage to be equally shared with two people worshipping him, not about the bride running the show.

    Of course I think about my wedding– what girl hasn’t? But more importantly, I pray that my husband will be loving and guide me in growing in Christ. I pray that I will be able to overcome health issues so I will be able to have many children and take care of them and my husband. God has given me glimpses of what my future will look like when I pray for these things, and I am patiently awaiting the day when I look into my future husband’s eyes and know he is the one God made for me!

    To be honest I’ve thought about both A LOT!!!!!!!!! I pray for my future husband (I hope I’ve met him or will meet him soon <3 <3 <3), and I still often plan my dream wedding. <3 I know God will provide me with a great husband!!!!!!

    Honestly, I haven’t thought much about either. Right now, I’m just trying to know God, survive high school, and figure out where I want to go to college.

    I’ve actually found that the guy and the marriage itself I’m looking very much forward to… but my wedding day? *shudder* the thought horrifies me honestly. Maybe I’ll appreciate it more when I finally find the guy I plan on sharing it with.

    I haven’t thought about my future wedding much. I have, however, thought about my future husband.

    I’ve put just about no thought into my wedding, and all the more into my marriage. For the honeymoon, I want to go to Hawaii for a week in a five-star hotel, and then go buy 5 acres of woods, set up a tent, and call it home. We would build a cabin out of chopped-down trees, and have an indoor garden, a chicken pen, a river, a hammock, and a big fence surrounding our property. You would, however, need to climb over the fence in order to get in and out. it would be a deter to everyone. So we would have a smaller fence inside our property that our children could practice on. And no, we wouldn’t have a car… I’m pretty sure that buses would still exist. And so would libraries. Crucial for entertainment. No electricity, you know. And the kids would be homeschooled- I don’t want them going to public school, and you learn so much more that way. We would walk to church, drink river water (purified, of course) and I would be a stay-at-home mom. That’s what I would call the good life.

    That’s something I think she’s got right! 😀 It’s not about the dress, the tablecloth, the napkins, and the flowers. It’s about who’s there with you. I hope my wedding will have my parents, my siblings, and the love of my life and forever husband. Of course, it’s fun to think about what kind of dress you want, and what flowers you’d like to have. But we should never loose sight of what marriage is.

    I won’t have an extravagant wedding. But Miley is right. It’s not about the reception it’s about that special day that you only have once with the guy that you want to spend the rest of your life with.

    I’d say it’s pretty equal with me. I hope I’ve met my future husband. <3 But if that doesn't work out, I know God's got the right guy in store for me. I've been praying for him for quite awhile, and I know what I'm looking for. The wedding… idk. All I know is I hope to make it memorable, but not extravagant. I'm not exactly a practical person, but I don't want it to cost an arm and a leg, right when he and I are first getting started. The only thing I've thought out completely is the dress. 😀 And of course I've dreamed of walking down the isle with my daddy, and imagined the look on my man's face as we say our vows. But as for the reception or whatever, who knows? I don't. 🙂
