Best wedding you've ever been to

What's the best wedding (other than your own) that you've ever been to? Why made it stand out?

The best wedding I went to was a good friend of mine's a few years back. I was really good friends with the couple and really happy to see them get married. I think it stands out as the "best" because I was cloes to the people getting married and had a lot of fun.

The best wedding I've been to was Joe's brother's wedding (even though I didn't know anybody there). I thought the ceremony music was beautiful (the cantor was a friend of Joe's mom). The church itself was also very beautiful as well as meaningful since they had been attending that church since they were kids.

Another reason I enjoyed the wedding so much was because Joe was the best man and very involved, and I was so proud of him for being such a great brother. =) We hung out with the wedding party a lot in Texas and everyone was really nice and lots of fun. I hung out mainly with the guys as they got ready. They all "borrowed" my hair spray and paul mitchel hair products! =)

I'd have to say, so far, Lilly's wedding. It was the first time I was a bridesmaid, and it basically a big dance party (that's how she envisioned it). It was such a blast!

I guess my cousin's about a a few years ago. It was held at a gorgeous hotel with a beautiful view of the water. Food was good and the music was great.

The best wedding I've been to was my brother's. It was intimate (around 60 people) and personal. The ceremony was the most adorable ceremony ever, because my SIL is just one of those super cute girls in the way she talks and expresses her love. She was gorgeous. There was no dancing (but we had a blast hanging out), no fancy decor etc. But it was so moving. Both my bro and SIL made a speech, one in English, one in Chinese (so the non-English speakers could feel included). The speeches were from their hearts, which made the guests feel very appreciated for being there. Because of their wedding, I'm excited at the idea of having a very intimate wedding myself.

This is a great thread.  FI and I really want to have a FUN wedding with lots of dancing...but I worry that it won't be because most of the weddings I've been to you just end up sitting there, getting served your food, course after course, and by the time the dancing starts, it's late and a lot of people just go home. 


Both my sisters' weddings were great for different reasons.  My twin sister had a DW in dominican republic and it was just small, intimate, and beautiful.  The reception was right on the beach, so everyone was barefooted and it was just fun to be with close friends and family at a beautifuil setting.  My other sister's wedding was great because the rented the reception hall place for the WHOLE DAY, it was nothing fancy!  My brother in law helped with all the food preparations (he loves to cook) and it was a buffet....The reception lasted from about 1 in the afternoon until about 1 in the morning....it wasn't the usually stuffy formal type of party.  It was just a lot of fun.

best wedding... hm.. that's a tough one.. i have to say DH's friend's sharon and chester. Although there was a little drama with the room having to be set up in 1hour for the reception because the hotel messed up it was fun! She did a lot of planning and details were minimal but practical. They had Chinese dragons. DJ was DH.


And at the end of the night everyone hung around the hotel because she got one for her parents, her siblings, and us for djing the party for free. before we went to the room i saw right before i was going to take the elevator up some balloons left over from an anniversary party... i ran out of the elevator grabbed it and caught the elevator up in time running by some of DH's friends. DH was reaming me for stealing.. which technically it wasn't if someone LEFT them. We get into our room and get a knock on the door. We thought it was security.. but it was the remaining of DH's friends and they brought in 3 more bouquet of balloons. We had prom picture sessions then ran to the bride and groom's room and left it there. LOL. So it's not the details, the band, dj, program that can make the wedding... it's the people that goes.

Where I caught the bouquet. It was at a winery and it was simple,but elegant and classy at the same time. I loved it.

Some friends of ours got married just over a year ago.  I think it was the best wedding because so many of our close friends were there, the food was pretty good, and the music kept us all dancing til the end.  We kept the party going at an "after party" at a local lounge/dance club.  Even the bride and groom joined us.  We had a VIP area and danced the night away.

Even though I've been to many, many weddings over the past 10 years or so. The one that stands out as the most meaningful and romantic was about 7 years ago. The wedding consisted of about 9 guests, no wedding party. We just met everyone on a cliff overlooking the ocean in Carmel. The bride was a Japanese exchange student who stayed with my family back when I was 12. She came and visited us many times over the years and she eventually was able to move to California to persue a nursing career. She met a nice American boy and everything seemed to click for her. She's essentially a sister to me. They hired an officiant who met us there. There was no music, no DJ, my dad walked her from the street out to the cliff where her FI was waiting. There weren't even any chairs. We all stood back and watched as they recited their vows with the ocean behind them.  It was an absolutely GORGEOUS day and the photos were absolutely stunning with the bride in a pink tea-length dress and a wreath of white roses in her hair, and the groom in his Air Force uniform. I was a very weepy just taking in the moment. After the ceremony, we all had a dinner at some fancy restaurant in Monterey.


A few months later when they went to Japan, her family surprised them with a huge wedding complete with a poofy gown and a giant banquet reception. When they came home, she told me the wedding on the cliff felt so much more meaningful.


In all honesty, I wish I could have had a wedding like that. As much as I enjoyed wedding planning and getting to see all of my friends and family together, and I still really had a wonderful time at my wedding... something that simple would have been really nice. DH and I have talked about renewing our vows in a setting like that. maybe in 10 years.
