It's Feel good friday over at mommy etc, and I gotta say the topic is great. It is what made you feel good about or on your wedding day? If you're not married what made you feel good about a wedding you attended?
I remember my wedding day like it was yesterday, it's been 4 1/2 wonderful years. I felt like I was the queen for a day, and my hubby treats me like the queen all the time.
I loved the hundreds of candles everywhere. The church had about 150 and the reception had over 300. I loved the gazebo in the center the featured my gorgeous wedding cake that Mom made.
I love loved my wedding dress. It was the very first one I tried on. The owner of a cute little boutique looked at me when I walked in and said she had the dress for me, I tried it on and it fit to the tee. I did put it on hold to try on others but went back and got it at a great price of $350.00. The train was amazing and that was what sold me on it.
The walk down the isle was so exhilerating, and to walk to my prince charming and to see the look adoration for me was so heart warming.
One of my favorite moments that gave me goosebumps; I had a dutch song printed on scrolls since my husband and I both came from the amish and we had lots of friends and family at the wedding that did as well. In english the song is called 'God is love' and it is a popular song at amish weddings. That song was sung by all who knew it and i got goosebumps and was an emotional moment for me and don't even really know why.
The wedding kiss was so fun , cool, amazing and yummy. My new husband dipped me and then all the groomsmen had little cards in they're pockets with a number on it rating our kiss. (I did not realize this untill after the honeymoon when I saw the pictures. loved it tho)
The bestman was my husband's best friend and was amish, he also works with horses and when the pastor asked for the ring he gave it and my sweetie took it and all of a sudden noticed that it wasn't the ring he was expecting. the best man made a ring out of a horse shoe nail and glued a bead into it as a joke. I still have the ring and it does fit.
I remember the emotions the I felt leaving our reception as husband and wife and driving to our bridal suite in a victorian mansion b&b for our wedding night before heading to our honeymoon destination. It truly was a day of Wedded Bliss!

The memories and the things that made me feel good about our wedding day are endless.
I enjoyed this trip down memory lane, Thanks Elizabeth.
