And no fair saying it was marrying your sweetie! That’s obviously the best part 😉
My top three:
1) Seeing how happy my dad was to be father of the bride. It was clearly a very special day for him, which I didn’t appreciate beforehand. Made doing the whole event worth it!
2) Meeting with Darling Husband before the wedding. He picked me up from the hotel room where I got dressed, and we arrived together. I’m so glad we had that time to ourselves.
3) Breakfast in bed the following morning! My parents got us a fancy hotel room as a wedding gift – and it was so fun to have delicious room service with my new husband!!!
Runner up: Seeing how happy EVERYONE was that we were married. Very special 🙂

- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
the best part? that everyone had so much fun! so many guests told me that it was the best (most fun) wedding they’d ever attended, and they still tell me that to this day.
we had a band play most of the night so all the older guests dance, then we had a dj spin towards the end so all the younger guests pumped up the party. everyone danced — even people who don’t usually dance!
i love playing hostess, making sure everyone has fun and lots to eat and drink, so that really means a lot to me.

1) People keep saying it was the most beautiful, fun wedding they’ve ever been too. They constantly tell me that it was simply beautiful and all the little details were so well thought out…makes me feel so good like all that hard work was SO worth it because it didn’t go unnoticed.
2) One of my grandma’s is in a nursing home and even though she doesn’t remember me, I was bummed because she couldn’t be there. But, my aunt found a way for her to attend the church ceremony and it meant SO much to have her there!
3) How well me and the hubs worked together to get things done. We realized how OCD/detail oriented we both really are and it’s so funny to see us both with our tongues hanging out to do things just so. I was really proud to see it all pulled together on our wedding day and know that WE were the ones to do it…just us all by ourselves.
It’s so much work, but at the end of the day I would (and kinda want to) do it all over again!

Right after We said I Do, and we’re "presented as husband and wife" the song
Signed Sealed Delivered Kicked on real loud and we danced and laughed and cheered up all aisle and had a brief private moment together to just smooch and hug and cry a little before our guest followed us out.

- Wedding: June 2008 - Imperia Hotel (modern chic hotel)
Everything with my daddy. Him taking care of my veil before walking down the aisle, the look on his face when I was getting ready and when we danced together.
It all meant the world to me and it was very emotional for me. My daddy and I have an extremely strong bond – and I knew he was so proud of me 🙂
Walking down the aisle to the feathers theme of Forrest gump was up there too. To see Mr. F waiting for me… I cant explain the happiness I felt at that moment

The best part was having all the family together!! We had not been together since my Grandpa passed away 8 or so years ago. This was a happy and fun time for everyone!! Oh and being husband and wife… I had to throw that in there.

Definitely the reception!! It was great to see my mom, dad, stepmom and stepdad all just totally wasted! It was awesome! We loved our reception, we just danced and had a great time. I wouldn’t have changed that for anything.

1. Dancing with my new husband for the first time, and the final dance where everyone was in a big circle around us!
2. My dad’s speech.
3. Everyone telling us our wedding was so "beautiful and elegant, but fun and relaxed at the same time." Exactly what I was going for!

I would say it was the fact that my parents who have been divorced for over 13 years and hadn’t spoken to each other in the same length of time were able to get along for a day.
I was very worried that things were not going to be amicable, but my Grandmother-In-Law told me she saw them hug and tell each other that they did a great job raising me.

Seeing my husband at the altar. Then when he started to tear up it just got me all weepy!

Seeing everyone’s reaction to the entire day. We put a lot of work into the little details for our wedding and trying to make it fun for everyone. It was awesome to see everyone enjoying themselves!

1. Saying our vows and exchaning rings. I loved the traditional Book of Common Prayer words and how we both teared up.
2. The moment after the ceremony were it was just us and our wedding party. Lots of hugs and laughs. It was a great moment.
3. Dancing- all of it. But especially, "Dancing Queen" and "Living on a Prayer" with just the girls after the bouquet toss.

I had two best parts:
1) We got to the venue with the wedding party at about 5, and the doors didn’t open until 5:30 to start the receiving line so we had 20 minutes of downtime to stand around, chat with our wedding party, eat some hors d’oeuvres and have a drink. It was the only time of the whole day that I really got to relax without having to leave to chat with people, thank people for coming, etc.
2) After it was over and my new husband and I arrived at the hotel (don’t worry, this isn’t going to get indecent…) – taking off that dress and putting on a robe, taking the pins out of my hair, agreeing with my husband that we were STARVING. We ordered wings and poutine from room service and just talked about the day and smiled at each other like idiots.
