Ask my FI this same question and he answered the same as me!
After the wedding done, guest leave, get in the car, what do you want them to say about the wedding? What is the most important aspect of the wedding do you want your guest to talk about. Besides “that was a nice wedding” and “happy for the couple”
For instance, here a few example G a Family: it was all about the food and how it tasted. The C Family: was all about the decor and look of the wedding, they were trying to impress With decorations. The A Family it was about the music in the wedding, singing & playing etc. the W family it was about the clothes, each dress was personally crafted And designed (bride & MOB were seamstress)Each was unique in it own way, none better than the other. It was their style. They may of skimped out in other ways but not in their one area.
So what is the most important part to you, what aspect will people notice in your Wedding? Just curious!!!

@Jacquelinesc84: I’d love my guests to have had fun, liked the food, and felt like they could relax and catch up with friends. Though I’m a very visual person, I threw a lot of decor out the window and focused on guests’ comfort. Open bar, delicious food, and a shuttle for people who are from out of town to get from downtown to the wedding venue.

For us the most important things were a touching and meaningful ceremony and amazing food and it was the 2 things that everyone was raving about so we feel that we delivered. 🙂

@Jacquelinesc84: People know that both DH and I sing, so I knew that would be a treat for them. I’m glad we did it becuase people walked away saying, “We loved the ceremony. Best wedding I have ever been to.” Most people love the recpetion, dancing, food, etc, but not many people say that the ceremony was the best they have ever been to, and that was the reaction we got. We were right on time, it’s was short, but not too short, we sang, DH sang, we added as much humor as we could and as much love as we had. We put our everything into the ceremony so people would enjoy that.

We wanted people to feel like it was so fun and so “us”, and to make things easy and comfortable after most traveled so far to our wedding. Everybody said it was the most amazingly fun wedding they’ve ever been to… so i think we suceeded.
@Jacquelinesc84: what was yours and your fiance’s?

@lolot: Ours we want to walk away with a feeling they are so happy for us. We want people to cry and laugh, and feel like they just share in a personal moment with us. We are making very personal, totally us. Even if it’s quirky, little different.
My FI is very out going, friendly and total people person so am I. We both natural are givers, we want them to share in the happiness too. Even though it our day, I want people to be at such easy and at home that they feel like they apart of our special day too. I work in hospitality and kind of comes natural. I also love working with children, have done Sunday school, I’m a ventriloquist and puppeteer so there will be lots of families at the wedding. So it will be very kid friendly.
So really I guess we want people to be happy for us, share in our happiness!

I want our love for each other to shine thru and for people to really “GET” us (many family members live far away and don’t really know us as a couple). I also want people to think it was so fun they didn’t want the night to end (versus people under the age of 50 leaving early).

We just wanted everyone to have FUN! I hope everyone had as much fun as we did, because we were absolutely loving it. Also, I wanted them to say the food was great!

I wanted my guests to have fun. I was recently at another wedding with my husbands younger cousins. and we were talking about our wedding and she says “oh we had the BEST TIME at your wedding, it was so much fun!” even 2 years later it was still very nice to hear 🙂

I seriously Love each comment I think it’s cool! I remember when one of the G Family complained at the C Family wedding that the food was “ok” I thought well that was what was important to you but this wedding was just as wonderful as yours!!! But in its own way!

We wanted our guests to say, “We had such a great time!” and that the wedding was a great reflection of who we are as a couple.
Success! People have called it the most fun wedding they’ve been to, and I’ve heard several people say that the details reflected us so well.

We wanted our guests to come away thinking two things:
1. That it was such a happy day.
2. That they’d had such a splendid, convivial time.
I wasn’t bothered about decorations, themes, centerpieces or the like. We wanted smiling faces and good fun.

I want people to have fun, enjoy the food, and not have their eardrums bleeding by the end of the night like we have at the last few weddings we’ve attended (bad DJs).

We just really want our guests to feel relaxed and happy (: I really hope that they think that everything is very us, special, loving, and uncomplicated. I want it to be a peaceful and non-stressful day for everyone (including myself aha). We’re doing an outdoor morning wedding and lunch reception at my parents’ house and we’re only inviting family and extremely close family friends. Our family doesn’t really ever get to see each other all at once – there are always a few people who can’t make it to Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter. I hope it’s a time for everyone to just laugh together, hang out, and spend time with each other (:
