Highlight: After everything was over my hubby and I were waiting on the best man to return with his car keys (I know this has the starting of a lowlight but hang in there). Almost all of the guests were gone, we were outside looking up at the stars, it was one of those really nice nights where it wasn’t too warm or too cold and we saw a meteor fall. It was a nice moment that we wouldn’t have had if the best man had remembered to give the keys back to my hubby.
Really lucky in that all of my memories are great! Another highlight was getting hair and makeup done with my sister and friend. I don’t get to see either of them very often anymore, so a few hours with just them was fun for me.
Lowlight: My dress didn’t get laced up properly.

Highlight: Spending an hour alone with my new husband at our sweetheart table. We had a delicious dinner and some cocktails and just got to chat, alone, for a while before the crazy began.
Lowlight: Unwanted, unwarranted family drama. Definitely didn’t ruin our time but certainly put a small damper on the day and the days afterward.

Highlight: Walking down the aisle. Will never ever forget that feeling or seeing my SO’s face for the first time. And secondly, the speeches at the reception, loved every minute of that.
Lowlight: Being sick the night before my wedding and being unable to really enjoy the getting ready part of my wedding. I didn’t get to drink mimosas or be really excited with my girls. It was more putting cold cloths on my head while getting my hair done and standing in front of fans hoping I wouldn’t pass out. But the day ended up being amazing depsite all that.

HIGHLIGHT: Our first look. Him seeing me in that dress alone without anyone around and talking about how we were getting married in a few short minutes was absolutely crazy. His reaction to my dress of “incredible” and “amazing” were more than I could ever hope for and he looked oh so handsome. Those private moments before the crazy were just what we needed.
Also, our vows. We aren’t incredibly over the top romantics (despite how our wedding may appear) and our vows were the one time when we did go overboard. We were crying, our guests were crying, hell even our bridal party was crying. We put a lot of effort into them.
LOWLIGHT: My mother leaving in the middle of dinner without so much as a goodbye or adios and never returning. I have no idea why she left, when or where to. She was also supposed to meet us the next morning for family breakfast and didn’t show…she had left the hotel a few hours earlier.
I have not spoken to her since the wedding and all she did to explain herself was leave a brief voicemail. I remain hurt, pissed and frustrated. People I am told didn’t even think she was there and were talking about it as they also found it odd that the MOB didn’t make herself known.

Highlights: Too many to pick just one so I’ll select a few. The feeling I had when the doors opened and I began my walk down the aisle. Wow, what a feeling to finally see my future hubby and see him staring back at me. Seeing the tears in my step-dads eyes when he came into the bridal suite minutes before my walk down the aisle to get a sneak peak at me. Dancing with my new husband and friends to LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem!
Lows: Unfortunately we had a few issues with the venue but nothing to completely ruin the day. The biggest one was the waitstaff never serving us apps while we took pictures during cocktail hour (they were supposed to come down with food just for us). We didn’t get to eat any of that food! Also, we were supposed to have the afterparty at a bar upstairs from the ballroom but our venue closed it early without telling us. Lastly, our videographer kept getting in the way of our photographer and asking me to pose in shots that I didn’t want to do. He was supposed to be barely noticable but he bothered me most of the day. Hopefully he’s not in all of my photographer’s shots!

Highlight: Hearing him tell me that I looked more beautiful then he could have imagined.
Lowlight: We didnt take as many pictures as I would have hoped to.

My best memory is walking down the aisle. I walked down to Marry Me and it was perfect. And my non-emotional Fiance (now husband) had tears in his eyes as I walked to him. It was all too perfect.
Te worst memory is when the DJ did a dollar dance, to polka music, when we didn’t want one. We didn’t want to sound money grubby and the little intro he gave into it was beyond mortifying and all about giving us money. Ugh!

highlight definately was the 2 or 3 minutes right after the ceremony where me and hew husband just hugged and cried I’m soo happy to have had that moment captured:
the lowlight of the evening was when Fiance said he forgot to thank his mom is his speech. I felt bad for him.

Highlight: The entire ceremony itself. The 2 readings were so amazing and fit us perfectly- our vows were really emotional and I started tearing up while DH was squeezing my hands and making funny faces at me to try and get me to laugh instead!
Lowlight: Everyone leaving early as a result of it being Sunday 🙁

Wow. So many moments its hard to choose!
Highlight: Riding away in the pedicab after the ceremony and just having a moment to ourself. And my, our, 14 year old daughter giving her speech that made everyone in the room cry and I was so proud of her.
Lowlight: Brother-In-Law being grumpy and ditching out on family pics after the ceremony. Grrrr… Now I can’t use any of those pictures because he’s not in them AND I don’t want to upset my sister, who is amazing btw.
Post # 27
Highlight: Looking around the room and seeing my friends and family having a great time, eating and drinking and dancing and BEING at our wedding. There were a couple of moments when I was alone and just stopped and took in everything around me. I’ll always remember those moments.
Lowlight: I freaked out a little during pre-ceremony, post-First Look pictures and ran inside to the bathroom. I was still so stressed out from all the planning and things weren’t going JUST SO, so I felt overwhelmed. DH came in and comforted me, and I felt better. And my waterproof Maybelline mascara didn’t make a mess of me!

Highlight: Walking down the aisle. I can remember it very clearly, while the rest of the ceremony is kind of a blur. I was giggling because I was trying really hard not to cry, and at one point I started to sway a bit and my dad whispered “a little to the right!” and tugged me back to center. I got really overwhelmed with emotions!
Low light: when the DJ played Cotton Eyed Joe, when I had specifically requested no line dances. Oh well, it gave me a chance to get out of the ballroom and mingle with the guests at the bar!

Highlights: Seeing all the people that have been a part of my life. How many people made it and the amount of gifts. I was blown away by how much my family and friends did to get ready for the wedding. Our food and location were amazing, river, victorian home, green lawn. Being so in love with by hubby. Having so much fun talking to the guests we almost forgot the toasts, caking cutting, and dances. So many things to list. The little girls following me around with stars in their eyes. My amazing bridal attendants.
Lowlights: Family getting ill and not making it including my ring bearer and flower girl. It was a little warmer then I would have liked. Family started to stress me out, people getting in a rush to set-up. Being stressed a few hours before
The following were not that bad but could have been better: We didn’t cut the cake correct, he put my ring on the wrong finger…lol. The parent dances were cut short by the parents. . The bouquets that I made I forgot to put the ribbons on. I bought way to much beer and wine. During the garter removal he took off my cowboy boot and I had on ugly socks on lol. We were 15 mins. behind on the ceremony. My skin was way dry with the make-up on and some of my hair went straight.
Waiting to see the pictures and hopeing they look great.
