     The ceremony and exchange of vows is what I personally want to remember the most out of my whole wedding day. I don’t really give too much importance to what my guests take away from that part because it is our moment. For my guests, I want them to have a good time and enjoy the celebration. Of course all of the poll options are important, but for me I want to have gorgeous decor and floral arrangments. I want my guests to remember how beautiful the reception area looked.

    I love this question. I’m sort of ranking it like this:

    1. The feeling of love between me and my Fiance, and us and our guests.

    2. The feeling of just laid-back, relaxed, warm and welcoming fun for everybody at the reception.

    3. How well the theme flowed throughout the entire event. I went to a wedding last summer where everything from their invitations to their flowers to their clothing all just fit together so nicely without being overly matchy-matchy and I still talk about how so “them” it was and how cohesive the whole thing was. That’s what I want to recreate.

    To me, the food and drink is probably the most important part. Then the venue and the music. It’s a party afterall, people aren’t going to remember what the flowers or my hair looked like, they are going to remember having good food with good friends and having a good time.

    I know this is super cheesy, so call me a cheeseball if you please…lol, but I really want my guests to remember the love between us and the emotions of the day. I always feel like there are the weddings where you can tell the couple just has eyes for each other and are both so enveloped in their union. Which is completely the point of a wedding anyway. 

    Second to this would be the scenery and atmosphere as we’re doing a beach destination wedding. 🙂

    If the foods bad that’s all guests remember 🙂 The bride is always beautiful and the ceremony is always lovely.

    I want our guests to remember how much we truly love each other, because that’s what that day is truly about. The flowers, food, music, cake, and dresses are all great but the reason for that day is to express your love for that very special person <3

    I would say the fun, how much fun they had.  So that probably centers around the music, dancing, and alcohol…oh, and the other guests and bridal party!

    How happy, connected, and in love we are. Oh man, that just brought on the water works haha! Also, I’d love them to remember all of the small intimate details we will have throughout the ceremony and reception. Edited to add: I really just want people to have fun, especially since we are having a destination wedding 🙂

    How much we love each other followed by the fun they had at the reception. I’m hoping for some good speeches as well.

    In my culture, the ceremony is not anything too emotional and there won’t be any alcohol or dancing at our wedding so as shallow as it sounds I would want the guests to remember my dresses and the venue..well one of them because its a two day thing and one venue is off beat and super cute and the other is just a banquet hall

    You want guests to look back and say, “wow, that was an AMAZING wedding!” 

    Sure, you want everyone to relish in the lovey dovey cuteness that is you and your new Darling Husband, but the reality of it is, guests aren’t going to remember that.

    I think that means its a combo of a lot of things.  In my personal opinion, I’m focusing on food, a kick ass play list and making sure my guests have an open bar.  I want guests to love their food, but not be either hungry bc there wasnt enough or be too stuffed to dance.  I want everyone ON THEIR FEET! and everyone loves a fun party with free drinks!  I also really hope that the combo of everything really lets “us” shine through.  We love good food, we love hosting of friends and family, and we love just being happy with our favorite people.

    @Bridebee13:  I want the guest to remember how much fun they had with the rest of the family! 99.9% of our wedding was family (only friends were in bridal party) so I wanted everyone to leave feeling closer!

    For ours,  the atmosphere and location. We were willing to pay for a view and atmosphere that wasn’t a standard Jersey ballroom, but was still fill service.
