Blind Bride Has Groom And Guests Use Blindfolds To Experience Her World

A bride with a physical disability came up with a unique way for her family, friends and the man she was marrying to experience a little bit of what she goes through on a daily basis.

Many people get stuck and set in their ways, refusing to change their opinions or even consider other thoughts or ideas on a number of topics. They see things from their perspective, and so that must be the only and correct way, many people believe. But, of course, that is an erroneous type of thinking. 

A clip posted on YouTube shows that a blind woman, on her wedding day, wanted to show her future husband and those attending the ceremony what it’s like to be blind.

The video begins with the bride, dressed in her beautiful wedding dress, exiting the vehicle and arriving at the church. With help from her bridesmaids and a man presumed to be her father, the young woman makes her way to the church. As she does this, text appears in the video explaining what she asked her future husband and guests to do and why.

“I’m blind and I blindfolded my sighted husband and guests when I walked down the aisle… this is their reaction when they lived a moment in my shoes,” the text reads.

The video continues as the young woman reaches her future husband, who is blindfolded, as she requested. But then more text pops up, stating something beautiful, a special moment took place between her and her groom.

“Before Ollie took his blindfold off we had a moment for him to feel my dress so he could know why I chose it,” the text reads.

That’s a special moment they will remember for the rest of their lives. The video is also a reminder to be more empathic. Stop, consider and look at situations from the perspective of others. What does it feel and look like to be in their shoes? How would I react if in that position? 

2 Corinthians 4:18 “While our minds are not on the things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are for a time; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
