    Not married but I read something once, that getting married should be the worst day of your married life together, as each day you grow closer and more in love, and it just gets better.  Every day after it should top it 🙂

    I sure hope not or else what do I have to look forward to? It is a milestone and a day to remember but other things are equally, if not more, enjoyable.

    @mscuppycake:  No. Don’t get me wrong; our wedding day was amazing, emotional, and memorable. However, we’ve had several days and moments before as well as after that were just as special in different ways – our first real life date after dating online; the day we moved in together; the day he proposed; everyday of our honeymoon. You get the idea. 

    I think it’s important to be able to enjoy one’s wedding day and cherish the memories, but I think it’s really limiting to label it as THE best day forever and ever, you know? Like so for the rest of our life together, nothing will ever touch that day again? That would make me so sad!

    @mscuppycake:  Eh, it’s all relative. I would hope that the day we purchase our home together (which should be soon) will be a great joy, the day that we welcome our first child into the world and other milestones will all have equal or more weight. 

    Was our wedding day a joyful, fun celebration? Yes. What it is the best party we have ever thrown? Yes. Was it the best day of our lives? I think that remains to be seen.

    there was definitely something about the day that absolutely seems like “the best” but I have definitely had other “best” times (vacations, holidays, births etc) and hope to have many others….


    I do think it was the best wedding that I have ever been to though! but I might be biased a bit 🙂

    It was the best day of my life so far. I imagine that the day out baby is born might trump it, although it will also probably the most painful day ever too lol.

    Yes becasue you’ll never have so many people you are close to in one place ever again celebrating with you.  That’s never going to happen ever again.  It was amazing.

    I was shocked because I thought it was just hype when people said that, but it truly was! I was so happy the whole day and just on cloud nine. Having all of our family and friends there celebrate, and saying my vows to my husband in front of everyone was amazing. I felt so loved and happy! We danced all night and had a blast. 🙂

    No, mine wasn’t. If things went differently maybe but they didn’t so no. But I also wouldn’t want the wedding to be the very best day because the wedding is just the beginning. Every day after should get better and better.

    It’s hard to say. My initial thought was “No -of course not – you should enjoy all of life…” But sitting here, I can’t think of a specific day that was better. So I marked “Yes”. There have certainly been some experiences that ranked up there. But our wedding day was a lot of those awesome experiences all shoved into one day. I don’t have many other days when I was surrounded by so many of my friends and family – and that is huge for me. But then, my wedding was only a month ago so it’s still very fresh in my memory! And even if your wedding is the best day- that doesn’t mean it’s going to stay that way! After all, I leave for my honeymon in 2 weeks!

    @stephee:  That’s pretty true for me! Almost all of the days I’ve ever spent with my husband are better than our wedding day. These are the days when we are our true selves, building our lives together and living out our commitment. But we are not “party people”, and much prefer spending time alone together over being the center of attention or with a crowd. 

    The best day of my life so far was probably an ordinary day spent with my husband and our baby girl. Just playing with the baby, laughing and talking. It’s the small quiet moments that mean the most to me.

    It was wonderful and one of the best but I wouldn’t want it to be the best day ever – then everything else is down hill.

    Ours was wonderful but not at any single moment did I feel that I was 100% ‘there’ – it’s hard to describe, the whole day and night just felt so surreal. 


    So, it was a great day filled with loved ones but was it the absolute best day of my life? I’m not too sure.

    @Cory_loves_this_girl:  This is exactly what I was going to say!  There are many more milestones that I’m looking forward to – buying our first home, children, etc. – but I would definitely say our wedding day was the best day of my life as of now.  DH and I had been together 9 years when we got married, so it was a day that I had been looking forward to for a very long time!
