I guess, I’ll be the one and only bride who will say…not really. I mean, was it a great day b/c I married my husband? Absolutely, but it was extremely stressful because of my mom, and I couldn’t relax b/c I felt like she was watching my every move to make sure I was being the proper hostess. To be honest, I didn’t have a ton of fun at my wedding. I know my husband did, but me…not so much. At the end of the day, I was glad that it was over and I could start my honeymoon.

Honestly, I am glad it’s over. It was a fun day, but I mostly remember being nervous before the ceremony and then taking a ton of pictures during the reception.  We started to make our way around the tables, but ran out of time. We kind of just did whatever we were told to do (come take pictures, line up here, cut the cake). The day was a little bit of a blur, but it will be really nice to have our pictures back. So all in all, it was fun, not too too stressful the day of, but I am very happy that my husband and I are settling into our lives together. 🙂

One of the most fun nights of my life. It’s such a high, there’s no words to describe the feeling. My problem was I was still so wired afterwards, I lay awake in bed till 6 am while my new husband slept peacefully beside me.

It definitely was exhausting.  But its one of the greatest ways to be exhausted.  There’s a lot of chaos at first, it dies down some for the rest of the night but it is still a tiny bit chaotic.  In a good way though.  You’ll have a ball, if you choose to.  Its definitely a choice.  I was being pulled in a thousand directions, whether by friends, family or vendors.  But I soaked it all up!  It was great.  Being the center of attention isn’t normal, but it can be so fun!  Just try to relax, let things happen and soak.it.up.

I had SO much fun at my wedding and the entire wedding day! It really was (one of) the best days of my life! It was partially because we had 3 wedding events – rehearsal dinner where all guests were invited and we had about 95 of our 120 wedding guests attend, our wedding itself and the day after brunch where we had probably 50-75 people attend. We were able to see and conversate with every single guest at least once throughout the entire weekend, which made it easier for the wedding night because we spent time doing what we wanted to do! I danced A LOT. Besides the time we went around to tables (and only got to 4 of them out of 13) I didnt really have many conversations with people. Here and there, yes, but nothing too long. I spent most of my time with my husband and those I am closest to! I also ate ALL of my food and drank a little bit (the perfect amount). I honestly couldnt have imagined a better night. I hope the best for your wedding as well!!!!!!!

The main comments we heard from guests was how euphoric we were, both the day of the wedding and the day of our at-home reception.  I think that before the wedding, people tend to get stressed out.  However, on the day, what’s done is done, and is pretty much out of your control, so you get to enjoy the fact that you are finally getting married to the one you love.

I really really thought our wedding was going to be awkward! Hubs is shy and neither of us really like to dance PLUS I thought I might be stressed out about little details well boy was I wrong! It was seriously the best night EVER I had a smile from ear to ear the whole time we danced like maniacs and just had fun! We didn’t want it to end!

I had an absolutely fabulous time. My husband and I both wanted to make sure we had a ball, so we organized a few activities before the wedding: a houseboat trip, our bachelorette/bachelor parties and a barbeque, so we could get all the talking out of the way before the wedding. On the day we just had a great time without worrying about offending anyone. Best day ever and I don’t feel like I ignored my guests at all!

It was the best day of my life! And not just for the obvious “I married the man of my dreams” reason. It’s such a great feeling to know that everyone at your wedding loves you, and that you love everyone there ya know? I just wish that it hadn’t gone by so fast and that I could remember every minute of it. I have a terrible memory…and I may have had 1 too many glasses of wine by the end 🙂
