A Georgia woman has gone viral after marrying herself in front of her family and friends in a stunning ceremony.
35-year-old Meg Taylor Morrison from Atlanta is a successful life coach who has never been more in love than when she decided to give herself a big ‘I DO’ on the altar.
According to the newlywed, she was planning on marrying her longtime boyfriend back in 2020 only for her plans to fall apart when the pair went their separate ways.
Deciding she no longer wanted to wait for her prince charming to have a dream wedding, Meg directed her love to herself and started planning a beautiful wedding for one.
After coming up with the venue, a custom-made wedding cake, a stunning dress, and a sparkling ring, the 35-year-old tied the knot with herself in front of her family and friends.
As she revealed, she was initially a bit worried about what other people would think of her if she actually went through with her plan to marry herself. However, she pursued her dream wedding in an attempt to distance herself from constantly pleasing other people and do something for herself and herself only instead.
“I wanted to marry myself as an act of self-love. I’d always thought I’d get married on Halloween 2020, but instead I went through a very loving breakup shortly before in June,” the life and business coach said.
“I’d heard about self-marriage ceremonies before and I thought, I don’t need someone else to have this wedding. I was excited to plan my wedding but also nervous at first about what people might think.
“Was it selfish to have an entire non-birthday celebration dedicated to just me? Could I get myself a ring? Would people think I was compensating for not being married?”
As Morrison added, her wedding was “the most wonderful experience,” whereas she was finally able to do something for herself by saying ‘yes’ to her own desires.
“One of my best friends, Peter, walked me down the aisle while my guests blew bubbles and hummed Here Comes the Bride. I said my vows and couldn’t help but cry throughout them,” the 35-year-old expressed.
“My friends were so wonderful. They brought me wedding gifts, treated the time as sacred and special and said beautiful words.”
Following the successful ceremony, Meg has encouraged other people to love themselves and commit to themselves without worrying about what others might think of them.
“I wasn’t trying to compensate for anything, fill a void or heal through this ceremony. I would have married myself even if I was still in a relationship,” she concluded.
