I remember falling asleep in hammocks in my wedding dress with my nieces late that night. Everyone left the next day so my hubby and I had to delay our "wedding night" for 24 hours.

My most vivid memories are: Putting my veil on and tearing up. My uncle was so nervous about walking me down the aisle that he almost couldn't do it-- and he's a hard-ass military guy. Awww. During the ceremony my hubby and I couldn't stop smiling; my cheeks hurt. At the end of our first dance, he dipped me and everyone clapped! My great-aunt, at 93, made the 4 hour trip and at the reception she blew me a kiss and I cried. The food was freaking amazing. My bridesmaids were the best ever and we had a blast dancing all night. As soon as we got back to the bridal suite, my hubby and I dumped my dress and his tux on the floor and jumped in the jacuzzi :-D

I remember watching my dad walk up to dance with me and seeing tears in his eyes. As the song started playing (Billy Joel's Lullaby) he started crying and I couldn't hold back my tears. He was whispering all these incredible things to me about how happy me and my new husband looked and how he'd always be there for me and how much he'd miss me when we moved away. Ok, I'm tearing up now. I can't listen to that song now without getting teary-eyed. The second most memorable thing was taking pictures outside in the snow with the sunset and the mountains behind us. I was in a strapless dress but not freezing because I had so much adrenaline and giddiness. After we were done, we looked up at the lodge, and all of our guests were peering out the window at us and waving. We actually got a picture of it, it's really great!

What do I remember most? Probably the fact that I spent most of it alone, should that have been a sign? Haa haa haa, guess I can't read to well.

I remember feeling very confident in my decision to marry my husband. I never felt more sure of anything in my entire life. That's says a lot, as I'm neurotic and tend to second guess, third guess myself.

I remember how totally euphoric I felt after the ceremony was over. My favorite memories are of us reveling in being husband and wife. We couldn't stop smiling and kissing.

We were only 21 and 23 and our friends are the same age so we danced to some of the music we liked when we were in our teens. It was fun. My two MOHs and I sang Paradise by the Dashboard Light by Meatloaf because we'd always sing that at sleepovers. We danced to all kinds of music since it was such a diverse group. Also the girls went skinny dipping and my Mom joined in LOL. That was a blast. It was like a big party but no one was drinking.

I remember getting to the hotel and trying to get out of my dress and get the millions of bobby pins out of my hair, and my new husband was about to fall asleep waiting for me. Thinking back, I should have let him take it off of me! :P

Thank you! We've been married for 12 years now and it only gets better. I just felt, and still do feel, so lucky because of all that I went through prior to meeting hubby. My first marriage was abusive and the fact that I'm still alive is humbling enough, but then to meet someone so wonderful when I wasn't even looking, was just icing on the cake. I too hope that your wedding day is special and beautiful and everything you've dreamed of!

Kim, I love what you wrote, it literally made me tear up! I hope my wedding day (whenever that may be) is as special and beautiful as yours :)

There have been very few times in my life that I've been speechless. But my wedding day was one of them. I remember being in shock on my way to the church. The day went in slow motion and I can remember every single detail. I remember feeling so lucky and blessed to have met my husband so serendipitously. I remember my Dad shaking his hand and also being so grateful to him that he knew my hubby loved me and would be a great husband and father (I have a child from previous marriage, plus our own children when we had them). My Dad couldn't hide his tears. I remember the priest bringing my daughter up to the altar after blessing the rings, and having her hand our rings to us to place on eachothers fingers. So my daughter helped marry us. I remember my brothers tears falling on my shoulder when we danced at the reception. I remember leaving for the hotel and hubby getting plastered with birdseed lol. I remember standing in the bathtub in the hotel to take off my gown and the bottom of the tub getting filled with birdseed that had gone done my dress, or was in my veil or had gotten stuck in the crevices of hubby's tux. I remember cuddling together and talking about the day and our future. The happiness, gratitude and joy I felt is so often beyond words.

Oh man, I have a ton of great memories from that day... I remember going shoe shopping my cousin who was a bridesmaid because she didn't have shoes yet. Seeing my husband for the first time. Our pictures together. Walking down the aisle with both of my parents. My husband holding back tears when we were saying our vows...and thereby making all of our guests cry. Our first dance. Our officiant and very good friend calling me out on being pregnant even though we had told no one (we had just found out the week before). I still don't know how he knew. Me being STARVING when we got home and my husband getting me some cheese and crackers and cutting the crap out of his finger. He still has a scar. It was a PHENOMENAL day. :) :)

Walking down the aisle...I hadn't thought about it. Everyone was looking at me. My husband was up front waiting, smiling. I wasn't prepared for that for some reason! crazy, an overwhelming warm feeling!

What do I remember most? Well, it was the SPLITTING headache I had all day. I had strep throat and I was sick as all get out.

To me the whole day just feels like a blur. My specific memories seem to all be distorted from what actually happened because of talking with people and looking at pictures. Though my favorite "memory" is a photo that was captured of my husband when he first say me walk down the aisle. His jaw dropped and his face said it all. (Though I will admit I don't actually remember seeing this expression the day of the wedding.)

I was just going to say that, many details of the day are a blur, it went by so quickly. But I remember just feeling SO SO happy to be so in love and surrounded by the people I care about most in the world. It was almost a surreal experience.
