What Was Your Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“Getting to marry my best friend and my love, for starters! Getting to spend time with family and friends that we do not get to see often are moments that I will cherish for a lifetime. My absolute favorite part was when our photographers snuck us outside for photos while everyone ate it was really the only time we had together throughout the wedding besides the ceremony.”

What Was Your Least Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“It was stressful. A lot of people were having their own party in the farmhouse we rented on the premises of the venue rather than staying at the reception like asked. I spent the entire night of my wedding cleaning up after guests that trashed the venue, property, and farmhouse – I wanted to cry.”

What Is One Thing That You Would Change About Your Wedding? 

“I wish I would’ve done a smaller guest list, and a more intimate wedding, so that I could actually spend time with each person rather than running around with my head cut off and everything being a blur!”

What Was Your Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“The gathering of all my family and close friends, my family lives all over the place and sometimes it is 3+ years before I see most of them but they all made it to my wedding and that was amazing.”

What Was Your Least Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“This is a tough question, um, I would say the stress. It is a wedding, they should be a fun celebration but what not everyone realizes is how stressful all the prep is.”

What Is One Thing That You Would Change About Your Wedding? 

“Our photographer choice, we didn’t put in the effort to go look for a good photographer, someone at church volunteered and we thought “ya, free pictures!” but they didn’t even turn out. If I could do it over I would fork out the money for a good photographer.”

What Was Your Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“I was so excited to marry my best friend that I don’t actually remember any other part of the wedding. So I would say the outcome of the ceremony was my favorite part!”

What Was Your Least Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“Everyone left the reception early. I don’t know if there was just too much going on or what, but it seemed like everyone was in a hurry to leave. I did not like feeling as though I was rushed to chat with everyone while getting all the reception “traditions” in as well.”

What Is One Thing That You Would Change About Your Wedding? 

“I would change the time, not the date, just the time. I would make my wedding later. I was so worried about what everyone would think about my wedding that I went with the “normal” time of marriage and decided to get married at 2p. If I could do it over again, I would probably have the wedding around 6p to make it more of an intimate event.”

What Was Your Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

Megan – “Walking down the aisle with my new husband and hugging him once we exited the sanctuary.”

Matt – “Seeing Megan react to the surprise I had waiting for her at our reception, a friend of ours built us a dining room table for our new home, and she had no idea it would be there at the reception, we had our first meal as husband and wife at that table.”

What Was Your Least Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“The day before our wedding as we set up the hall was stressful. We remembered little things we forgot, and worried about other forgotten things for the next day. We prepared a LOT, but still had a handful of things that needed to be wrapped up the day before, we also didn’t have any wedding planner or anyone at our venue to help with those pieces.”

What Is One Thing That You Would Change About Your Wedding? 

Megan – “I would have allowed a little more time in the morning with the photographers while I was getting ready to get a few more posed photos.”

Matt  – “I would change how much food was there, our buffet caterer ran out of food.”

What Was Your Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“My favorite part of our wedding was getting to marry my best friend! Coming down the aisle, I just wanted to get to him! The best thing was knowing I would be married to Gregory no matter what (things going wrong or different from what we had planned).”

What Was Your Least Favorite Part Of Your Wedding?

“My least favorite part of our wedding was being in front of everyone. But I felt better that it was all family and friends!”

What Is One Thing That You Would Change About Your Wedding? 

“One thing I would change about our wedding would be going out to take pictures during the reception. It took us away from everyone for about 30 mins. We missed some dancing and some people had left by the time we got back.”
