I have a question for the married bees… I have been to several friends weddings and all of them acted completely different when walking down the isle. Some were smiling ear to ear, others looked scared out of their mind. Others teared up a bit…What was your emotion when you walked down the isle and when you saw your groom for the first time that day???

I didn’t walk down the aisle (we were at the courthouse) but we both teared up a little bit during the vows, if that counts. 🙂

I was all smiles! We did a first look before the ceremony, and I was completely nervous then. You can see if our pictures how much I relaxed after seeing my husband during the first look. I’m glad I saw him ahead of time or I would have been really nervous during the walk down the aisle.

First friends to get married the bride was crying and shaking the WHOLE time, she was thrilled but a mess. 3 couples just seemed normal amount of happy, one couple the bride didn’t really seem happy at all, just sort of normal.

I was smiling big and I felt distracted. There were so many people and I kept looking at everyone else when I was walking down the aisle. I felt like I barely looked at my groom until I got right to the end of the aisle. I still feel kind of bad about that.

I encountered several emotions as I went down the short aisle. 1. I smiled because I felt so happy to be marrying my best friend, 2. I was close to tears because I had waited so long for that moment (I’m 39), and 3. I tried to be strong…telling my hubby as he started to cry “You’re okay”.

On my way to the chapel, I had to fight away the tears. When I finally saw him, I couldn’t stop smiling. I was so excited and kept thinking “I can’t believe this is actually happening right now”. It was unreal

I was smiling from ear to ear and didn’t notice anyone in the church besides my dad on my arm and my Darling Husband at the front. It was like I was in a bubble and we were the only ones there. Complete tunnel vision (in a good way). 🙂

@Mrs.KMM: That was exactly how I was! Could not stop smiling the whole day!

I felt just like FutureKMM and PitBullLover! I really don’t remember seeing anyone at the ceremony until the recessional.

I was smiling and excited, but I was majorly annoyed with my Dad who was stepping on my dress and veil the entire way down the aisle. It wasn’t even a big/long dress- he was just way too close to me. I wasn’t able to look at my guy once. It’s my only wedding regret. If I could do it over I would walk alone and savor the moment.

It wasn’t the first time I saw Darling Husband since we did a first look, but I was just REALLY ready to get married. I remember standing and waiting for the cues for all my BMs to go and being like “Oh dear god, let’s just GO already!!!!” and some lady who ran a shop in the venue chatting my ear off and I was so not interested in talking to her, LOL! Going down the aisle though I was smiling, trying to concentrate on not stepping on my dress, I remember making eye contact with my BMs, and my stepson showing me the toy he got from my BIL in exchange for the rings. I was just really ready for it all to be done and to be married! LOL! When I got up to the front I was thinking “oh thank god, it’s nearly done, let’s eat!”. I cried a fair bit, I think I was paranoid about getting sniffly and having a snot bubble (LOL!!!!), and I remember laughing at my youngest nephew who kept saying “SHUUUUSH DADDY!” pretty loudly from the front law with my other BIL who kept whispering Shhhhh in his ear.
I have no idea what anyone else did or how they looked, I just remember being so focussed on Darling Husband and trying not to rush through my vows. It was awesome 🙂
