Father and Daughter - Wedding Day


Your wedding day typically happens in such a blur that it’s a wonder if you remember it. Think about it; between the dancing, the alcohol, the family and friends, and the crazy emotions. It’s a wonder you even remember where you are throughout the day. But as it turns out, there are a few things that you end up remembering, and we’ve decided to list them for you for your convenience. What will you remember from your wedding day?

1.) The transportation from the ceremony to the reception. Whether you took a limo, a horse-drawn carriage, or even walked to the reception site, this is one of the most vivid memories for many couples. Think about it; it’s the first moment right after you’ve officially been announced as a betrothed couple that you are alone. The experience has even been described as time-stopping; it’s quiet. You hold hands, take a deep breath and begin the second part of your day: the reception.

2.) The moment you first see each other. You and your spouse will remember exactly what you and your soon-to-be spouse wore on your wedding day and how you both felt upon first sight of each other. “Seeing her in her dress for the first time was something I thought I was ready for,” explains Greg. “But I had no idea how happy I would be to see her. I just lost it.”

3.) The unique distractions. There are so many emotions you need to control on your big day. Many people create unique distractions to keep from crying. “I didn’t want to ruin all my professional makeup,” explains Madison, “so I started thinking about what my dogs were doing at home and how excited I was to eat a piece of wedding cake. I don’t remember much of what the Rabbi said while I was up there, but it worked!”

4.) The inside jokes. So many little things are between just you and your fiancé. Whether it’s a little look from across the room when your uncle starts with his wedding speech or a couple of clever remarks, you’ve both added to your vows for a little amusement between you. The little jokes and quirks make you such a perfect couple, and they are also some of the things you’ll remember for the next 30 years.

Suzie describes the end of the limo ride; “As soon as the limo pulled up to the reception hall, Brian announced ‘21st Floor: Menswear.’ It’s one of his favorite lines from the movie Liar Liar, and it still makes me laugh when he says it.”

5.) The morning after. The morning after is one of the happiest moments for most couples. “You’re very aware that this is the first day of your new life together,” says Tom. Anna reacted similarly: “ I couldn’t wait to introduce him to people as my husband,” she said.
