A friend of mine recently got married and was talking about how she doesn’t remember her walk down the aisle. She felt like she just warped from the end to the alter. Got me thinking about my wedding day and how I felt. I don’t remember the people, or the cameras or the aisle decorations, but I will never forget getting close to the alter and seeing my husbands face. He had the biggest smile I’ve ever seen on him, and I quickly held back tears.
Do you remember?

I do! Although it seems as if it was a whirlwind (not just the walk, but the whole ceremony), I do remember. I remember seeing my husband’s huge grin, too! That was the best. And I had to fight back tears as soon as I reached him. It was amazing. 🙂

I remember starting my walk down the aisle, and thinking how happy I was at the ceremony decor (it was the first time I had seen it). Then I saw my husband’s face, and everything got blurry–I was trying not to cry and trying not to fall in my 4 inch heels! It went by very quickly, unfortunately…

I remember joking with my dad before we got to the aisle (no idea what we were talking about) and getting up to DH and seeing he was crying. But the actual aisle? No and to this day I have no idea what the aisle decorations looked like.

I remember right before the door opened thinking, “walk slowly and remember everything”… the second I saw the church and our guests I just broke out in a huge smile. I remember making eye contact with my family (couldn’t see DH yet) and looking at our aisle runner and flowers thinking, “It’s sooo pretty!” Then the moment I saw DH, I was practically giddy! So yes I remember everything 🙂

It was a whirl for me too, but I distinctly remember a couple things – when I started walking, my mom stuck her hand out to motion for me to drop my bouquet down, which we had rehearsed at the rehearsal, lol. And then trying to remember to walk slow, enjoy it and grinning like a fool at my Fiance. Who also had a huge smile 🙂 Never forget his face 🙂

I don’t remember the walk. I remember my feelings right before walking down and I remember being up front with DH but the walk is a blank in my head 🙁

@smith2be: “walk slowly and remember everything”
I love this… I will repeat this to myself many times that day I’m sure. 🙂

I remember my walk, mostly (kind of a whirl). I do remember stopping a few times to try to shake leaves out of my dress’s tulle train. I also remember one person’s face particulary..my friend said “Smile, pretty lady.” I then remember seeing my honey at the end of the aisle, when I got there. I immediately broke into tears.

I remember very little about my walk.. and really just parts of the whole ceremony.. =/
The week of was CRAZY and we had a morning ceremony so getting anytime to… stop. and relax. get my thoughts. or anything just didn’t happen..
Everything that morning till the reception is a blur… one thing after another and THEN finally I got to sit, look around, and enjoy everything =/

I actually did this: “walk slowly and remember everything”.
I still don’t remember walking the aisle.
I remember starting my walk because I was having trouble getting down the stairs in my dress and I remember meeting my hubby at the end of the aisle because he had to hold my hands to help me stop trembling, but I really don’t remember anything in between. I also don’t remember most of the day because it was such a blur. I wish I could, but I don’t. Everything went by so fast.

I walked down the aisle with hubby. The sides were all mixed up with everyone sitting together. His family is mostly Jewish (normally don’t stand for the bride) mine is not (folks stand)–no one could figure out what to do. One person would stand, realize they’re the only one and sit back down as another was standing. For a while it looked like a giant game of whack-a-mole with everyone bobbing up and down. It gave us something to chuckle about and not focus on all of the eyes on us.

Mine was short, but its about the only thing I remember. AFter the vows its all down hill 🙂 I mean it went so fast! I danced a lot and wish I spent more time going around to speak with people. I did speak with a lot of people, but I just don’t remember because I didnt sit and relax. Not that I had time to do that with everyone, but I wish I did more.
I was told to not stress about saying hello to everyone otherwise I would never enjoy my wedding. Well it looks like no matter what happens I didnt get to do it all.

I agree. The day FLEW by. I think there’s just too much going on and too much stimuli, that it’s difficult to really take it all in and remember everything. I’m glad I’m not the only one who felt that way.

I really wanted to savor the moments because I’d prepped myself on so many previous experiences of WB-ers so I expected the rushed blur. I was fine until our officiant walked back to the bus in which I’d arrived as all the guests turned to watch him chat me up before my grand entrance about a detail that he’d forgotten to handle. FAIL. I was kind of furious so my walk was a blur of OMG just get up there and get on with the show! I am pretty sure I had this awkward, impish, tight smile on my face while I stared at the ground, hustled and tried not to trip! Ugh. Oh, well. I’m sure the rest of the pics will be better, right? I hope.
