Married Ladies: What's Your Favorite Wedding Memory

Aside from the first dance, seeing each other the first time and the rush of saying I do, what's your favorite memory from your wedding day?


We were in the vineyard taking photos and a lady bug had crawled between the layer of organza and lining of my dress. We then fished it out and it crawled all over me.


In most cultures ladybugs are perceived as good luck.


France - In France, if a Ladybug landed on you, whatever ailment you had would fly away with the Ladybug.


Belgium - In Belgium, people believed that if a Ladybug crawled across  a young girl's hand, she would be married within a year.


Asia - In some Asian cultures, it is believed that the Ladybug understands human language, and has been blessed by God, Himself.


Norway - In Norway, if a man and a woman spot a Ladybug at the same time, there will be a romance between them

I loved spending the beginning of the morning with just my parents...ordered room service and spent my last breakfast as a single girl with just them! :)  THEN, I loved when there was a knock on the door of the hotel room.  I opened it to reveal a bell boy holding a tray with a champagne glass half filled with OJ, a bottle of champagne, and a gift box/card.  DH had arranged for him to come and pour me a wedding day mimosa and deliver his wedding gift to me.  So sweet! :)  Lastly, yes, seeing him as I was walking up the aisle was so great but the few brief seconds we had after LEAVING the ceremony area and talking to each other for the first time was so awesome!  Him saying he loved my dress, us excitedly telling each other "we're married!"...that was memorable!

I love how this shows some of the best memories are the days before and after the wedding. Ladies on the verge just need to take in the entire experience.

It was the moment before the garter toss, the DJ was rounding up all the guys to come on to the dance floor.  We had planned an incentive (but didn't end up needing it because those guys rushed the dance floor like they couldn't wait to get married lol) - when the DJ announced that the winner of the garter toss would receive a Wii, the whole restaurant errupted in an "OOHHHHHHHHH!"  It was just the reaction we had hoped for and showed to us that our guests were having just a good a time as we were :)

My favorite was our reveal before pics. April our photog set up a beautiful scene with just us and our song playing in the background. DH's back was to me and I walked up and put my hand on his shoulder. I was bawling and I could feel his back heaving with every cry. He turned around with tears streaming down his face and we kissed and hugged and it was beautiful!!!


Ask Cari, we were criers! heehee

Wil this is a fantastic post! 100% agree w/ Wil....


Don't sweat the small stuff just take it in and E-N-J-O-Y every minute!


The moments leading up to are such amazing moments.  I remember 2 days before our big day my MOH, FI at the time and some out of towners all took over a nail salon in town.  We had such a fun time just catching up and laughing hysterically!


During our ceremony there was one loud "thunder" in the distance which happened a really cool moment. Photog even got a shot of me looking into the sky the moment after it happened.


I think it was the being surrounded for many days with the most important people in our lives.  Not to mention getting crazy on the Dance floor was probably our favorite part!


:)

Aw, I so needed to hear this.  I'm 15 days away and last night I had a bit of a breakdown.  It's not just wedding stress, but other things as well - and I told FI that we should never have tried to get this wedding planned in two months.  But I know it will be worth it.  I really can't wait for our "reveal" moment.  Thanks for sharing your memories!

Besides all the usual stuff, it was seeing my brother's reaction (he walked me down the aisle) when he saw me dressed and ready to go. He got all emotional and said I looked like an angel.

Aside from of course, seeing each other for the first time and really knowing that this was the start of an amazing journey with the person that I wanted to be with for the rest of my life.


1. The joy of being in a room surrounded by so much love.  Almost all of our family were able to attend, and they ALL were from out of state.  Having them all in the same room, being able to meet our friends etc... the feeling in the room was electric.  We will never have everyone together at the same time like that ever again, and we tried to savor each moment.


2. My officiant there was someone I met at the age of 9 when he was guest speaking at my church in Arizona.  He then came out to be our preacher.  At the age of 12, I moved away, but he always maintained contact with my family.  Years later, Gordy retired and  moved back to Michigan with his wife.  However I couldn't imagine having any one else marry us.  So... 20 years later after our first meeting... Gordy officiated over my marriage.  It was fitting also in my mind, considering his older brother is the man that married my parents.  I was so glad that despite failing health, he was still able to do it.


3. My mother is a preacher's kid.  That whole side of the family is musically inclined, especially church choir.  (We're talking 4 part harmonies here.)  One of the best moments was, during my mother's toast, they all got up and sang "The Lord's Blessing" (as they had sung for my mother's wedding before.)  It was extremely touching, and I had no idea it was going to happen.

I had a few favorite wedding memories.  My first one was when my son, from my first marriage, came into the bridal room to visit me before the ceremony.  I still remember his exact words, "I'm so happy you found someone that really loves you mom.  You really deserve it.  You're the best mom in the whole world and I love you so much."  That's when I really began to cry.  My son walking me down the aisle was also a very special and emotional moment for me. 


Another great memory was when I saw DH for the first time waiting for me at the altar during the ceremony.  I remember his mouth opening wide when he first saw me and then we both smiled at each other.  When I finally got to the altar, my son and DH hugged each other and that's when I lost it.  Finally at the altar, DH said "wow! you look beautiful."  It was the perfect reaction any bride wishes for from her FI at the altar on her wedding day.
