What Part Of Your Wedding Day Are You Most Looking Forward To?

This question came up in a conversation the other day, and so I figured I'd ask Wedding Wire for opinions!

If you had to pick the part of the wedding day that you are most looking forward to, what would it be? Obviously getting to marry your significant other, but what else? Getting ready with your closest friends? First look with your FS? Walking down the aisle? The ceremony and/or being introduced as a married couple for the first time? Dancing and celebrating with your friends and family? Enjoying a delicious meal? Something else?


What do you think the best part of your wedding day will be? Or, if you're already married, what was your favorite part of your day?

    I am looking forward to SO MUCH but honestly, I cannot wait until those doors open & I am standing there with my Dad & I lock eyes with my FH! I seriously think about it in the car listening to our wedding soundtrack & start to tear up. Better get all the crying out NOW while alone in my car haha.

    It's hard to pick a favorite element of the day (I loved it more than I thought I would) but my favorite feeling from our miniwedding was after we walked down the "aisle" after the ceremony and walked away by ourselves for a few minutes. Even after our photographer started following us, it was nice to kind of be alone together for a little while.

    I'm actually pretty anxious about seeing everyone together at our reception next month, but when I think about seeing individual people I haven't seen in a year and a half, I'm definitely looking forward to that.

    I think the first look, our hand fasting vows, and then dancing with family and friends.

    Thank you so much for mentioning yours - I have been a bit stuck for a processional song, and just found 'all my love' by George Ezra that seems like it might be PERFECT! can't wait to show my fiance tonight.

    To answer the thread generally.. I am also REALLY looking forward to that moment where I lock eyes with my gorgeous partner at the end of the aisle with whatever song we choose echoing in our heads, and knowing how much we love each other in that moment, of seeing on his face what he thinks of my dress (gulp, a bit nerve-wracking too, haha!)

    Plus I am looking forward to seeing all the planning we've done coming together and seeing how it looks!

    So, besides the part where I got to marry the guy I had wanted to marry for 7 years...

    I was the swordfight bride. And we had BOTH wanted to have a swordfight since we had talked about getting married.

    So, yeah, this bit:

    (The person I am "elbowing" is a dear friend who also loves to swordfight. And had survived cancer the year before. This is now one of our favorite memories. Actor celebrations are a little weird.)

    That all sounds super unique and all great ways to personalize the ceremony! I totally see how that would be something to look forward to. Are you doing the unity tequila shot with just you two during the ceremony? Or are you including all your guests too?

    Ooh I love the ways you are personalizing your wedding! Especially the idea of playing Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who reads their vows first - I might have to borrow that idea!

    I think we're going to do just the two of us during the ceremony.

    Not a wedding, our vow renewal, but this is the silly trivial thing I'm looking forward to:

    We're entering the ceremony together, arm in arm, to an instrumental version of our first dance song from our wedding.

    I'm definitely most excited to see my FH's reaction as I'm walking down the aisle! He's been very adamant that he doesn't want a first look before and that he doesn't want to know anything about my dress, so I'm excited to see him be totally surprised. I'm also looking forward to the short trip we plan on taking after to kind of reset and chill. We won't be taking a longer honeymoon until later.

    I'm sure you walking down the aisle will also be a highlight for your FH! That will be such a beautiful memory for you both.

    I am so looking forward to the start of the ceremony. We spent so long figuring out the music for our ceremony.... The processional (only me, no wedding party) is "Still Into You" by Dylan Brady (it is a cover of the Paramore song, and is beautiful). The recessional music (which will start with the "you may now kiss the bride moment") will be "Still Into You" by Paramore, starting from 2:59. I am so excited to get all of this on video and see how it turns out. I am also really excited to see my fiance's face when he sees me for the first time as I come down our aisle.

    I'm super close to my mom - she's the strongest woman I know and a great role model for a whole lot of things. My dad isn't in the picture anymore.

    We're having her officiate our wedding. I think this will be such a great memory for all of us.
