A few years ago, I went to the wedding of a girl I had known for years and years over the internet, but it was my first time to meet her in person, so that was pretty exciting.  Anyway, her Fiance had a child from a previous relationship.  When the bride and groom said their vows, rather than holding each other’s hands, they actually brought the four-year-old boy in and made a circle with the three of them.  The bride and groom each said vows to each other, but then they also said vows to the boy and promised to not just be a loving husband and wife, but also to be the best mother and father to him that they possibly could.  It was incredibly touching.

Awwww those are both so sweet!!!

I have a good friend who has a lot of food OCD issues, and there are very few things she’ll eat. At her wedding, she had a sweetheart table (first time I’d seen that!) and the hotel made her chicken fingers specially for her meal (one of the few things she’ll eat) while everyone else had the full course menu. It was so cute and so typically “her”, her husband had them too so she wouldn’t be the only one eating something different 🙂

@tksjewelry:

I have tears in my eyes, aww I’m such a mushy person hehe

The last wedding I went to was my sisters and in the middle of the reception while my sister was talking to a table near by, I caught the sweetest look between her and her husband accross the room, they both had a sparkle in their eyes and they smiled at each other, so sweet.

That’s so cute!! I haven’t seen anything overly romantic at a wedding. At the last wedding I went to, however, the bride and groom released doves after a singer sang a beautiful song to commemerate the brides grandmother who had recently passed away. She was really close to her grandmother and it was a fitting touch. Although usually I find it to be a bit depressing, they managed to make it classy and sweet.

I love when they ask for the couple who has been together the longest to come out and have a dance, it was my friends grandparents… 50 years and they looked so in love!! Everyone was crying!!

During their vows, my sister’s husband promised to root for the Broncos (they are football NUTS and he always has rooted for the Chargers).

But, really, the most beautiful thing for me was the look in his eyes during their ceremony. He’s a very manly man, not very emotional…and he was crying almost the entire ceremony. It made my heart swell to know how beloved my big sister is 🙂

I love weddings, too.  🙂  One wedding I went to this summer, the groom wrote and performed a song for his new wife as her wedding gift.  It was so romantic and beautiful and I totally cried through the whole thing.

I got really emotional during my friend’s first dance. She was just ridiculously happy and radiating pure joy.

@MrsPom: I love anniversary dances, too!  We’re going to ask the longest-married couple to come forward, but I suspect it will end up being a pair of my Japanese guests, and they don’t usually dance like that, so we’re just going to give them a bouquet of flowers and ask them for marriage advice.  But yeah, a good anniversary dance just can’t be beaten!

@GreenEyedMoon: Not many things make me tear up but that totaly wins the award, So sweet!

The sweetest thing I have seen was at a cousins wedding (she was widdowed with 5 children) all the kids even the 4 year old, got up durring the toasts and said why they were excited to have a new dad, it was so adorable everyone was in tears…

My cousin Gary-who is one of the most truly amazing men on earth, married the love of his life, who happened to have a form of muscular dystrophy. His bride was very determined to walk down the aisle, even though she could hardly stand. She did make it about halfway down the aisle, and it was very obvious that she couldn’t go any further without falling, I remember that she just had this stricken look on her face, knowing she couldn’t do it. Gary ran right down the aisle and swung her up in his arms and carried her the rest of the way, and held her like that for the entire ceremony. It was really the most moving thing I’ve ever seen. They had one of the happiest marriages I have ever witnessed. Sadly, his wife passed away last week, but they had several wonderful years together.

To me, the sweetest thing I have seen at a wedding (and I’ve seen this at several different weddings over many years) is when the groom sings to the bride during the ceremony. I have wondered how they could actually make it through the song without crying. (DH and I both sing, but he did not trust himself to make it through a song that day, so neither of us sang to the other.) One groom was a singer/songwriter/musician, and he even composed the song he sang/played for his new bride.

As I am writing this comment, one other moment stands out for me, too.  A friend’s Fiance became so emotional during his vows that he started to cry and became so choked up that he could not even continue saying his vows. There likely wasn’t a dry eye in the entire church (I know tears were rolling down MY face!), as we ALL just sat there watching as he stood there for a moment or two, just trying to regain his composure to even speak. That was deeply touching.
