I always say that I really hope that wedding day isn’t the best day of my life, because I am hoping for a lifetime full of happiest days with my fiance. We better not peak out on the very first day that we are married!
For those bees who have already had their weddings, looking back was it actually the best day of your life?
Or was having your children the best day of your life?
My fiance has a daughter and he said that he always feels like he is supposed to say that the day she was born was the best day, but for him he found it to be an incredibly stressful and gross day lol. He says that the day he brought his little girl home was FAR better. I had never thought of this, but it makes a lot of sense

The day my son was born was the best day of my life. The day was AWFUL but seeing my little man for the first time…can’t be beat.

I don’t know…I haven’t had it yet! I’ve been through weddings and childbirth and they were awesome days. However I know that there will be even better days!

@freshflowers: We aren’t getting married until October. The best day of my life so far though was the day I brought home my rescued doggie! It wasn’t just great because I was getting a dog and a new friend, but because I knew I was helping get this sweet little creature away from a very bad situation.

The day we had our daughter and then our wedding day…I can’t decide. Actually, the first day she wrapped her a little arms around my face and said she loved me is up there too.
Both events were amazing and will forever be meaningful for different ways. We created a life and then before God and our families joined our lives. DH is thinking but I’ll update when he decides!
ETA: he said it was the day I married him

- Wedding: July 2012 - The Gables Inn, Santa Rosa, CA
I haven’t had the best day of my life yet, when I do I’ll let you know 🙂 But by then I suppose I’ll be dead.
As for the best day of my life SO FAR? That would most definitely NOT be my wedding day, as fun and stressful as it was. I’d say the best day of my life so far was the day my husband and I realized we could have our “dream life” now instead of when we retire like we’d always talked about. It requires moving to a different state, and a lot of hard work, but just the idea of having a self sufficient life style on our own plot of land is an incredible feeling. We leave at the end of the month to move in and start our new way of life.

I have no idea. How can you know until you’ve lived all the days? And anyway, if one day is the best, then that means that every other day wasn’t as good…and that if your marriage or the day your child was born was the BEST, everything else is WORSE…
That kind of thinking doesn’t make sense to me.
Also, there is more to life than getting married and having children.

The day I moved to LA to be with my now husband. We had just met 3 months previously in NYC and hung out for 1 day and then he went back to LA. We talked on the phone everyday for 3 months, I went to go visit him and decided to stay! It was the start to an incredible adventure.
Also, the day we got engaged. Followed closely by getting married. I loved getting engaged because it was a surprise he planned all by himself and it was just the two of us and so incredibly romantic.

I have not been married yet, or had a child BUT I do not think anything can replace my BEST DAY EVER… I was diagnoised with malignant melanoma and it is a pretty big life changing deal if it spreads to your lymphnodes or not( I would be stage 3 if it spread). I waited for results, and after meeting with the oncology surgeon I would either be having more surgery and starting radiation and/or chemo and fighting this beast with everything OR I would go back to a semi normal life.
Lymphnodes were clear of cancer and they “got” eveything out during surgery (I mean they can’t really know) but right then I left without an agressive cancer actively growing as far as I can know. So back to “normal” life.

Well so far it has been my wedding day. I didn’t have a worry in the world, sure things went wrong but I was so elated that I didn’t care. The day DH proposed was also amazing, it is so hard to put into words the happiness that I felt that day. Telling DH I was pregnant was also a huge day (haven’t had baby yet). The look on his face, the tears he tried to hide, is something that I will never forget.
I don’t know that there ever will be a ‘best day’, there is only a ‘best day so far’.

I’m not good at picking “best”s or “favorite”s, in general – ask me my favorite movie and it will be 10 different things on 10 different days. But I picked my wedding day. Honestly, I absolutely adore being surrounded by friends and fammily. I love big family reunions and holidays and visiting friends that live far away. And I love to party: dance, drink, eat, socialize. And I love me husband. My wedding was like all those thing rolled into one.
Honestly, there has been no other day where I’ve had so many of my loved ones all in one place. We had a big, backyard wedding that needed a small army of friends and family to pull off and it was amazing to watch everyone (my family, huis family, friends…) all come together and be so excited about our wedding. And we had a prayer during the ceremony where the bridal party and parents all put a hand on our shoulder/back and then all the guests touched the person in front of them so everyone was connected in a web and said a blessing for our marriage. It was one of the more powerful feelings of my life.
I will say that I think one of the reasons wedding days or the birth of your child is seen as a “best” day is it’s something so specific and so much thought goes into it that it’s very memorable. I have plenty of days where I’m laying on the couch cuddling with my cat and my husband and think “man, life is perfect and I’m in absolute heaven” but those days tend to kind of blur together into the happiness of life. Like my honeymoon was amazing and probably even better than the wedding, but was spread over 3 weeks and no individual day came close to wedding day. Which isn’t a bad thing. Just how the brain work. At least my brain.
So while I don’t think anybody should stress if their wedding isn’t he best day of their life, I don’t think anyone should feel bad if it is!

I dont think I can say one specific day was the “best.”
sweet 16, graduation from college, (the closing and getting keys) buying my first home when I was 23, wedding

I’m not married yet and don’t have kids either. So far, the best day of my life was graduating from college. It took a lot of work for me to get through an engineering program and on graduation day it felt like all of the sacrifices were worth it.

I think it depends on your experiences. We haven’t had a baby yet, so that could be it. Our wedding day was incredible and romantic and perfect, so it is the second. By far my favorite day is the day I told my husband I loved him and he said it back. He is the first and only man I have ever loved and it was incredible.

So far, our wedding day has been the best day. It was just fantastic all-around, I have never loved nor felt loved by so many people. I mean, of course I still love everyone who was there, but with three different families/groups (my friends & fam, his mom’s side, his dad’s side) all there at the same time, it was an amazing experience. The honeymoon would be the best week of my life, because that was also amazing.
I’m sure once DH and I move on to buying a house and having children, that will change. And I can definitely say that our wedding was not the day we loved each other the most, because I love him more and more each day.
