Of your ceremony?
Of your reception?
Ceremony: Definitely reading our vows to each other. We wrote them together, but it was still so powerful to make those promises to each other!
Reception: Dancing with my college friends!! I moved abroad almost right away after graduating and hadn’t seen some of them in ages, so it was amazing to get to hang out with them that night. (Kind of ironic, you’d think it would be with my husband, right? Only we barely saw each other during the reception!) I totally ripped out my whole bustle (like, ripped out and shredded the inside of the dress!) dancing 😀

Ceremony: When we were exchanging rings, hubby was so nervous and I was squeezing his hands to calm him down.
Reception: Supper, boy was that ever highly anticipated!

- Wedding: October 2010 - Ladder 15 Restaurant
Ceremony: Having our friends deliver it. It was so nice to hear each of them offer up their support to us. Also, it was just a fun ceremony that was very “us!”
Reception: Dinner with my sister, BIL and the Cardigans! They all were so much fun to hang with. Also, dancing with my mom before everything went to shit! That was definitely fun!

@Lindsay05: I love that point of connection! That’s the kind of thing that your guests probably never noticed but it will always stand out in your memory!

Ceremony: I have 3- 1) A stink bug flew into my veil and my Bridesmaid or Best Man tried to delicatly remove it, but it took my entemologist Uncle to come forward and bravly pluck it off. 2) My Darling Husband *hates* being the center of attention and when our officiant started with “the story of us”, he looked like he wanted the earth to just swallow him up LOL 3) Despite the fact that I cry at *everything*, nothing about my wedding including the working on the vows made me tear up. I was just so happily beaming. But I was happy that when I was reading the vows, I did tear up a little bit.
Reception: my Dad’s speech. I forgot that I was so close to death many times when I was an infant. It’s not only a miracle I found a husband , but I’m actually alive.

@KoiKove: hahahahaha… I love the bug in the veil. I would have been FREAKING OUT! Did you get married outdoors?

@ddw: Yes, it was outdoors right around the time the stink bugs were out. I had never seen or heard of stink bugs until this year. Luckily, there were only a few stink bugs and the reception was indoors.
My Photographer said that a wedding she did the week or two before, ceremony and reception both outdoors, everythinhg was coated in 1/2 inch of stink bugs, the tables, chairs–EVERYTHING! And the worst part?!? (What’s worse than being covered in stink bugs?!) You have to be very, very careful when trying to get rid of stink bugs because, well, when threated they release a *stink*. UGH!

Ceremony : Vows definitely – Darling Husband almost forgot them so i had to whisper the start of it and then he had it.
Reception – this is a difficult one, i have a few. Dancing with my dad, Darling Husband attempting to shove cake in my face, the photobooth and at the end of the night when the DJ played the last song everyone shouted for an encore and even though the DJ was packing up he pulled out his trusty iphone and played one last song. so fun!
@ddw: Darling Husband ripped my bustle! he stepped on it while dancing – i ended up having to carry my train haha i didnt even care one bit.

Since there’s an S I can list more than one right?
Walking down the aisle to my soon to be husband. It’s been a moment 10 years in the making.
Our vows to each other; we wrote them ourselves and chose to keep it under wraps until that day.
My nieces and nephews walking down the aisle! I saw this in video and pictures afterwards but the way they walked down just so clearly reflected each of their personalities and their relationship to each other. It was so funny, classic and endearing. 🙂
Our bridal party entrance; last minute we each decided to do something silly as we entered. Even now we will rewatch that scene over and over and crack up till our sides hurt each and every time.
A friend of ours aka GM/husband of Maid/Matron of Honor practiced a routine from Napoleon Dynamite and “performed” it during our wedding at the end of the night. Heels were off, ties were loose, it was such a great moment and def one of my favorites of the night.
Our parent dances; I did the father/daughter dance with my Father-In-Law (my dad passed away when I was very young). We’re very close so it was a special moment for us.
Dancing with our nieces and nephews! I Love those crazy kids. It was great to take a moment and spend it with them among the crazy day.
Our last dance song was “our song”. When it came on I was in the bridal suite removing my tea ceremony bling. My husband came looking for me to steal me away for the last dance. 🙂
