In the hope of making my wedding one of the most memorable weddings our guests would ever see (but all of us brides want that, dont we?).. i would like to know. Coz I’ve been to a lot of weddings but honestly, not one stands out. I know weddings are about the union of two people you care about and just that would make it memorable.
But what about the celebration, the ceremony details or party details or others.. In terms of just the wedding things and/or activities, what is the most memorable wedding detail you’ve ever seen?

I have to admit; none so far… but to be fair, I haven’t been really close to any of the couples whose weddings I’ve attended. It’s always been extended family & exceptionally, one of Mr Rugbee’s friends.

The most memorable I would have seen is my cousin’s first dance at her wedding a few years ago. She and her husband are very into martial arts and ran their own studio, so instead of the traditional first dance, the entire bridal party did a karate demonstration. Very memorable and very them 🙂 So just make sure your wedding reflects who you and your fiance are and it will be great 🙂

One wedding had a food station where they made pasta to order, and that was delicious!

None so far. My good friend’s wedding was memorable because of how she looked. She was really tall and beautiful, and in her wedding dress, she just looked like she’d go on forever. Her and her husband had a beautiful dance together, two very tall, very slender people intertwining with one another.

A friend’s ceremony was in this beautiful garden and she had a harpist playing for the ceremony. It was just such a romantic, magical setting. Perfect. <3

We were told by many of our guests that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was quite the compliment. Our guests appreciated that it wasn’t too formal and that we had only 60-70 people all together. They enjoyed the bridal party dancing down the aisle and the flower girl performing gymnastics As part of her dancing. We also had a First Nations drum group with traditional dancers and then included all of our guests in a round dance. Everyone noticed the details and all the hard work I put into my DIY projects. Our photographer and videographer both told us that they cried as I walked down the aisle, so touched by our ceremony and that meant a lot as they have both been to a ton of weddings.

One wedding: the song they chose. He picked it, and must have looked forever since it wasn’t a song I had ever heard. It was perfect though, and really described their relationship.
Another one: the cake! The bride’s friend made it, and it was the best cake I’ve ever had!
Another: Traditions. She was 100% Italian, and he was 100% Irish, so they incorporated dances from both backgroungs.
Another: the cake topper! It was an inside joke about their relationship, and it was really cute! They also had a fire pit which was a nice place to end the night.

I love weddings and I really hope I’d get to be invited in a really beautiful wedding too! Your stories sound great!
For our DW beach wedding, I made a lot of DIY details and I only hope the guests will notice and appreciate them. Those details are meant to reflect our personalities and our story. We’ll have our personal sand-castle, buffet by the beach with an action-station, then we’ll have fire dancers and drum beaters to start the dance party, and we’ll end the night with a 5-min fireworks show. We want the whole celebration to be relaxed but not casual.
I wish I could do more. Please keep the stories (ideas) coming! Thanks!

Well, we were told that the most unexpected part was ice skating,
as for other weddings, I’ve only been to two! The first one was memorable because of the Scottish dance lessons, and the second was memorable because it was tart additional southern Italian wedding in a completely isolated church.
this is us (and my sister) on our wedding day!

Most weddings I’ve been to have followed the tradition of the bride being escorted down the aisle by her father (or brother, uncle, close male friend etc.). I’ve always loved this tradition…until I attended a dear friend’s wedding.
My friend (The Bride), walked down part of the aisle alone, then, where there was an “intersection..so to speak”, her mom AND her dad met her there and escorted her down the aisle together.
I’ve seen many different, personal, special details at weddings, but for me, that was something I am totally stealing. I am an only child, and I LOVE the idea of having both of my dear parents walk me down the aisle.
