So, this is probably not going to be cheap or easy, but I was to a wedding on 7/7/07, and she surprised her groom with fireworks. That was definitely a wow factor!

For me, it’s the emotional stuff. The bride smiling as she says her vows, the grooms wimping tears away when he first see’s his bride walking down the aisle, or the look on a bride and grooms face when they have their first dance-like they are the only one’s in the room. Or the dad trying not to cry as he walks his daughter down the aisle. The mom trying to fuss over every detail so she doesn’t cry. It’s those little moments I notice at a wedding. It’s those moments I want my guests to remember from our wedding. Those moments cannot be bought or “made”. They just happen.

The best wedding I’ve ever been to had amazing food.  We were all floored by how good the meal was.  And after that, the music–a great band, and more importantly a great playlist.

Oooh nice one tessabella.  Totally true.  I think the heartfelt ones are the best.  Plus when everyone is having a good time.  It sounds like you’ve been putting a lot of work in to make your day great, and I think that’s all one can do! 🙂

I agree with tessabella76!! for me the memorable things are the bride making me cry because SHE cried during the vows. Or the bride and groom dancing and having so much fun with each other they forget they have 100+ guests watching. Those are the moments that make me smile.

I went as a date to a wedding where I didn’t know the bride and groom, (or anyone but my date), and it was the most memorable wedding i’ve been too.  They had an EXTENSIVE cocktail hour with a sushi station, crepe state, etc BEFORE the ceremony.  Then the reception was immediately after the ceremony.  Instead of a slide show of pictures, the bride and groom made a great video about how they met, (it was made up), which was really funny.  It incorporated some pictures but it had a fun story.  And then instead of just cake they had a whole dessert buffet wheeled out into the middle of the dance floor in the middle of the evening and there was a whole production with sparklers and baked alaska.  It was awesome.  Oh and the wedding was at night.  Like cocktail hour was at 9pm, followed by the ceremony and  a late dinner and dancing.  We left around 3 or 4am.

I’ll chime in and say I was ‘blown away’ at the service I received and the convenience factor of everything. So I guess that means having your wedding at a place that’s known for very good service. And not completely inconveniencing guests by having everything very far apart and spaced out.

I know guests biggest gripe is the time gap between the ceremony and reception, but they need to shove it because that’s the only time for pictures in most cases. I think as a guest in that situation, as long as it’s easy for me to get back to the hotel and then to the reception site I don’t mind a gap at all. Bonus to the bride and groom who provide activities or punch and cookies or somehting.
