Was your wedding legitimately the best day of your whole life?
I’ve been married for 3 weeks now and there is no doubt about it, the wedding was absolutely wonderful. I had tons of fun and because it was a destination wedding, I got to spend an entire week with my closest friends and family members.
That being said, however, I really don’t feel that I can say my wedding day was the BEST day of my entire life. It was definitely in the top 3, but the best? Seems a little overrated in my opinion.
What are your thoughts on that superlative “best day”?

Definitely not THE best day of my life. Everything went fine and the wedding was lovely, but idk…I’ve had other good experiences lol. I’m not one of those people that planned their wedding as a child or anything either though.

I was just relieved that it went smoothly and everything was well planned, aside from that i think the ceremony was memorable the reception was fun but it felt like it went by too quick i dont think its the best day of my life but i do like what it symbolized!

My wedding was lovely and I’m so glad we could share it with our friends and family, but it wasn’t the best day ever. Actually the day after was way better. I got to spend time with my husband alone and I actually saw him all day. I didn’t have any stress about whether it would be pretty enough or fancy enough for our guests or who would sit where. It was just a pleasant day at the zoo with my husband. I would totally do that again. Never in my life will I plan another wedding.
Also, I feel better on days that I actually accomplished something. The first sermon I preached, the first wedding I performed, my college graduation. Those could easily beat my wedding day as “best day ever”.

mscuppycake: No, my husband and I have lots of great days. I’d say it was one of the most important days of my life. The day I married him and the day I had my daughter, those are the two most important days of my life. I doubt they will be out done in importance.
I like to think that my best days are still ahead of me!

My wedding was one of the best days of my life. I was so nervous about it going smoothly, but it did. I had a ball, and I would do it all over again the same way, but minus the stress! The birth of my son was more earth-shaking to me if that makes sense. I was 100% responsible for the life of another and it changed me…
Both days were beautiful and wonderful in very different ways. I was engaged for a long time so I think that made it even more important to me, because of all of the planning and build-up! Also, the honeymoon in many ways was just as great. It was our first lengthy trip and our first time on a cruise. It was also longer than the wedding and we got to relax, enjoy ourselves, and see the sights.
I hope and pray that there are even better days to come! I actually think that saying it is the “best” day” is part of what makes so many people have the expectation of perfection. That also makes people feel like that is all that there is rather than looking forward to the future after the wedding. I hope it will be one of many beautiful and blessed days to come!

For me yes it absolutely was. I was dumbfounded by the love I felt from my family, friends, and DH. The whole day was pure bliss and happiness! I was on cloud 9 for weeks after just thinking about my wedding day. 🙂

I don’t want to be cliched so I’d like to say no… but I can’t think of a day that had topped it. I dont have kids, but I do have multiple degrees and have traveled a lot and many other cool things. But being surrounded by all our favorite people in the world, no drama, just overwhelming joy emanating from all directions and getting to marry the love of my life… it was pretty much the best ever.

bebelicious1: I think you are right about about having the expectation of perfection on your wedding day. I’m going to change my point of view on my day to one of many great days.
ETA: I adopted my children as a single parent and I don’t think anything could be better than the day I became a mother.

The best day of our lives is the day we are born.
If we weren’t born, we couldn’t have a wedding or do anything else for that matter.
My wedding day was sad and disappointing. I’m hoping my vow renewal will be happier.

angyjaxon: I just wanted to say (being adopted myself) that LOVE that single women are able to adopt now!

I’m due to give birth any day now, but so far, yes our wedding really was the best day of our lives. I’m very much an anti-bride and never dreamt of my wedding growing up or fantasizes about my Prince Charming as a little girl. When the big day came, I was really calm and had no worries at all. We celebrated all night with about 200 friends and family with 0 drama. You could really feel the love in that room. Pure bliss!

mscuppycake: Everything went perfectly and it’s probably in my top 10 days, but the stress of it leading up to it kind of took off the fairytale edge of it. I’ve had a pretty fun life though, so I’ve had lots of other amazing days too, and I expect more are to come!!!! I don’t have kids yet but I imagine they will contribute to a lot of those 😀
