It was four years ago but I can still remember everything that happened on that day. It was the most exciting and memorable day of my life. I could still remember how I cried while I was walking down the aisle hearing the theme from "A Love Affair". ANd I could still remember how my husband was smiling like crazy at the altar while I was marching down the aisle. I was so happy to see everyone I loved and cherished inside the church. Everyone was so happy after the ceremony. After the ceremony, we went to the dinner party and surprised everyone with a song. My husband and I had a grand entrance where we sang"Destiny" by Jim Brickman. Everyone was delighted with our little surprise. :-) Everything seemed perfect on that day, my gown, the ceremony, the music, the cake, and of course, the groom! I love that day and I will cherish it forever. How about you? What was your wedding like? Share your wedding story.

We got married 1 1/2 years ago (March 10, 2007). We were married at our church, by one of our pastors. Everything was just amazing & goregous. My husband & a couple other people had set up decorations the night before, so that I could have the night off & relax with my girls, so when the auditorium doors were opened, that was the first time I had seen the decorations, and it took awhile for me to take everything in! We had a great ceremony, my brother sang us a song he had written for us, and at the end of the ceremony, we had a sword arch (Marine tradition) & I got hit with the sword (another tradition), which I totally didn't even see coming! It made for a funny ending. :) After the ceremony, we took pictures, then, to kill some time between taking pictures & the reception, we headed to Starbucks with most of our bridal party, and we got free drinks! :) Then we went to the reception, where we had a wonderful night. It was amazing, and everything I had ever hoped for! :)

Well mine was nice it was just over 7 years ago. it was a georgus day, and the church was packed. i cried when my dad gave me away... i marries the love of my life. i hated my dress but looking back i guess it was not so bad as i was 6 months prego. I had the flowers i loved. i really really wanted to have a fall wedding but o well. it was super nice.I remember the day he asked me to marrie him, it was very simple but i will never forget that moment. I wish i had of asked a certin person to be my maid of hourner, but we were not as close as we are today. i was also so very happy to see everyone i loved and card about in the church to share our special day with. My hubby and i stayed right to the last min at our dance we were the last to leave befor the Dj, it was a great time, everyone got along great and had a blast. god i can remember it still so well. it was the best time ever. and after 7 years of ups and down's in our marrage i still love as much if not more then i did the day i fell in love with him.

It was really pretty nice. We got married in a small church. It wasnt our home church but one that was affordable to us. We had a pretty small wedding with just family and close frineds attending. I liked the fact that it was a beautiful day. We took pictures outside and the weather was perfect. We had a great reception at an Italian restaurant and then went off for our honeymoon to Mexico. It was a good day. I enjoyed spending it with friends and family.

Sometimes, intimate weddings are the nicest. Big weddings with too many guests tend to be very busy and hectic and the couple are usually not relaxed. Thanks for sharing.

Well it's been just over 21 years now, but mine was a comedy of errors. Started with my soon to be in-laws getting stuck in a traffic jam and arriving 40 minutes late, then as I reached the alter my father stepped on the train of my gown, almost making me fall over. As the wedding ended it started to rain really hard, fortunately the reception was held in the Grange across the road so we didn't get too wet. My grandmother (who gave me grief all through our dating, moving in together, getting engaged) moved my husbands family into the second room for the dinner putting cousins , aunts and uncles from her family in their seats. My father took care of that one. My matron of honor and I played a joke for the first dance, when the best man and she came out to switch partners, she grabbed me for the dance and the 2 guys were left to dance together. Our photographer made a mess of the pics. But when all was said and done everyone had a good time and I can look back and enjoy a laugh with my hubby about what we went through to get here.

It was almost 6 years back .... And believe me I was extremely tensed. It was a mixture of cultures wedding ... We had zeroed down on certain rituals from either side and carried out only those. Had to change my Saree thrice during those rituals. My hubby must have enjoyed it ... I felt as if I was in trance ... also a feeling that it should get over fast. Had felt really sad leaving my parents house

That would have been nice to see. I love seeing traditional wedding ceremonies from different cultures. And yes, it feels sad to leave your parents' house.

My wedding? It was a nightmare. First off I had over 100 guests invited and only about 20 showed. Geeee, thanks friends. Then, Dad and I missed our cue to walk down the aisle. The unity candle wouldn't lite. Then my mother in law (well she would be once the ceremony was over) stood up in the middle of it, shouted that the wedding was a farce and she would never accept it, and walked out - taking the rest of his side of the family with her. Great, just great. Once I calmed down, the ceremony was finished. Then the reception - where they had brought the wrong champagne glasses. They said happy anniversary on them. Oh, and then the honeymoon, where I got food poisoning, forgot to roll up the window in my new husbands brand NEW sports car - and it rained like crazy, leaving 4 inches of water in the floor board. It was all an omen of what was to come in the marriage. I should have listened to the signs and ran out of the Church screaming. LOL Glad yours was great. One was enough for me - never again! I'm divorced and staying that way!

[i][b]Im still single, but yeah, women have all this thing about wedding. Its good that you got all the things during your wedding day, i mean, it happened that way you wanted. I can remember how i planned my brother's wedding 2 years ago, that after the wedding, it because the most talk of the town because im the one who's there and assisted all the entourage from start to end. The bride walked the aisle without her bouquet, we assisted one of our cousin to be the flower bearer, thers bearer for the candles during the lighting of the candles, the little flower girls are escorted with teenagers, while the bride's maid are escorted with little boys..that way, during the entrance of the entourage, there will be no parent hanging around with their kids because they might cry. I can remember when the ceremony ended and the crowd keeps asking where the bride's bouquet is,and i signaled the camera man to take a shot at the aisle where the flower bearer is with her own escort and they went to the front and handed the bride with her flower..the crowd said its unusual because it doesnt happen on every wedding ceremony. Well, i have my own wedding plans and id be willing to share it with you when i get it realized..wish me luck! [/b][/i]

My wedding day is just simple. A simple get together of old friends, far away relatives and family members. It became memorable because it is the first day of my married life.
