For those who are married, what was your favorite part about your wedding? For those getting married, what is the thing you are looking forward to most?

My favorite part, beside the ceremony of course, was my father-daughter dance. My dad asked to surprise me with the song. He and my mom made a song where it was a mashup of songs that were important in my life. Songs that are important to our family, denote crucial moments in my journey, and things that spark instant memories. I was so surprised and at the end, it was a song that means the absolute world to me. I just cried! It was so special.

    My favorite part was our ceremony. It was super personal, our officiant talked about our parents and grandparents, and we wrote our own vows. It was really tailored towards us, and we had country music that was more "us" than traditional music. I took dance lessons with my dad, so the father daughter dance was fun for both of us. Then dancing with everyone after until the end of the wedding was really fun!

    When my husband realized that the song playing during the mother-son dance was the one he wrote as a kid - for his mom. His face was so priceless!

    Not married yet but I think the thing besides getting married to the love of my life that I am most looking forward to is our first look. We weren’t going to do a first look when we first thought about it but we ended up changing our minds after talking to our wedding coordinator. We are using the secret passage way in our venue to do it! It will be super cool I think. I also Am looking forward to everything coming together for our themed wedding.

    Our crystal ceremony.

    We made a composite crystal during our ceremony (we each had small seed crystals that were formed into one crystal).

    Everyone thought it was neat

    My favorite part was the cake cutting, because I made my husband promise not to smash cake in my face...because I spent way too much money on my makeup. So as we were ever so sweetly feeding each other cake, I just couldn't resist and picked up the plate when he leaned in for a kiss and smashed the entire slice of cake on the side of his face....bwahahahaha.

    When it came to the reception I'd have to say my favorite part was our first dance

    I’m most looking forward to getting ready together, him lacing my corset and telling me how beautiful I look.
    I’m also looking forward to our handfasting ceremony, our personal vows, our first dance(a custom song!) and yes maybe the cake lol

    I'm looking forward to having my children witness their mommy and daddy say I do. We've done everything backwards, but I wouldn't change it for the world 💞

    My favorite part of our wedding was being able to celebrate with everyone.


    It sounds super cheesy but my husband and I both know whether we had a wedding our not, the foundation of our relationship does not change. It was such a neat experience to have family and friends from different states (and countries!) travel to see us get married and celebrate with us.


    We just felt so, so loved the entire day. That's a memory I won't ever forget.

    Oh yes, she did! Every moment from the sweet beginning to the moment of deception to the hilarious aftermath. There’s even a picture with our 5 yr old daughter pointing and cracking up laughing.

    I can’t pick just one! Here’s a few:

    1. Seeing husband’s face when he saw me down the aisle
    2. Reading our self-written vows
    3. Doing a “private first dance” outside, after our actual public first dance lol, which was mostly just something the videographer asked us to do but ended up being super emotional—more so than the actual first dance!
    4. When the dance floor REALLY opened up and all our friends and relatives were just having so much fun!

    Sneaking to the gas station between the ceremony and reception to get a sub from Wawa. It was DHs idea and I made him go in so I didnt get my dress dirty lol.
    Also the spotlight dances and the Best Man's toast.
    My big softy of a dad made me cry because he got teary and he never cries. Of course I loved dancing with my hubs, didn't cry then though. We talked and giggled our way through the dance. It was nice to watch my MIL look at her son with so much love, too. He's the first of the 4 kids to get married!
    BM was one of H's brothers and his speech was so genuine, and funny and just all around perfect. It made me cry a little too!

    My favorite part was getting to spend time with family members we don't often see. We rented a house where everyone could stay, so we basically got two days with them instead of just seeing them at formal events. We held a pizza party the first night, provided breakfast the next two mornings, and held a dinner the night of the wedding. (The reception was a lunch.)
