    Lots of people said my wedding was perfect for me. I know it wasn’t everyone’s style, so I didn’t expect them to think it was the best ever, especially b/c I didn’t want dancing. But I did get tons of compliments on all my DIY things.

    I don’t know because I haven’t had mine yet, but I went to a wedding where I told them (and still tell them) that their wedding was the best one I’ve been to so far.

    I hope my wedding can be half as awesome as theirs was. πŸ™‚

    Yepp! I think a big part of it was that in my circle of family/friends it’s pretty typical to have a pretty generic wedding. This is the first one that a lot of people I know had been to that had a lot of personalization. We really did a lot of little things to make it about us and some little projects that were totally unexpected by our guests. They definitely appreciated it πŸ™‚

    People told us at the wedding that it was the best wedding they’d been to in a long time and the most personal ceremony they’d ever seen.

    Over a year later, we still get compliments about our wedding (and have heard friends comparing our wedding to other weddings they’ve been to since).

    I had a budget wedding but I must have done a good job because my BIL told me recently he thought the whole weekend was like something out of a movie (in a good way) and my aunt said that the whole day felt magical, my friend who got married the month before me told me she was jealous even though she pulled off a great wedding for $4000, (we both had similar budgets to begin with but I gave up the honeymoon and put the extra money to the reception and she got to go to disney so I was jealous of her!). I felt that my wedding really was the happiest day of my life and it was perfect for me, and it just felt really good to hear my guests talk about how much fun they had because that was my #1 priority.

    Also, I was extremely nervous because most of my new in-laws are very wealthy and go to some very nice parties, but they all said they had a great time too and my new favorite uncle in law spent the whole night cutting a rug on the dancefloor.

    We got a lot of that.  Even on photographer and videographer said it was by far the easiest weddings they have done.

    A year and change later, we still get told what an awesome wedding we had.

    Of course, I think a lot of that had to do with the location. We had a lot of out of town guests and the Santa Monica Pier is definitely a great tourist spot. So much going on with all the people, carnival rides, lights, etc.

    But everyone also commented on how laid back/personal/fun it was.

    We had a good chunk of our guests tell us it was the most fun they’d had at a wedding in ages, we were praised all around for our ceremony, and people still get a dreamy look on their faces when they remember the food.

    Darling Husband and I were the first ones in our closer circle of friends to get married, and now other couples we know are starting to tie the knot. We’ve had several people quietly tell us that although the other weddings they’ve been to recently were lovely in their own way, ours is the standard by which the rest are being judged, and apparently we set the bar really high, lol.

    People love to tell us how much fun they had at our wedding, they loved how personalized everything was, and they loved the band. People really loved our CS Lewis reading during the ceremony and that we had traditional hymns. And the cake. Everyone looooves the cake

    I had someone say that my dress was the most beuatiful she’d ever seen! lol, kinda doubt that unless she hadn’t seen many but I appreciated it.

    I still have people tell me how fun and personal it all was. It definitely wasn’t the party of the century, but we aren’t those kind of people so that wasn’t expected πŸ™‚

    We did have  alot of comments. At a family wedding this weekend, my aunt who’s daughter was getting married even brought ours up. Ours was ina completely different spot then where my family has had all of their weddings and I think we were the first to do a cocktail hour and photobooth. so it was a lot different then the our typical family wedding.

    As I’m still waiting to have my wedding, I have been to 2 weddings where I told the bride and groom that their wedding was the best ever! And I meant it sincerely both times – both couples threw an absolutely fantastic party with people dancing to the very end, and the reception and ceremony really reflected the couple.  I can only hope that my wedding is half as much fun as theirs were!!
