Our wedding was perfect. Not the everything-went-exactly-as-planned kind of perfect, because it did not. Stuff was forgotten, stuff was changed, but none of it mattered. We could not have been happier with how everything panned out. I could write about, and post pictures of it for the next 50 blogs!
I assume most of you will click that “unfollow” button if I do that though, so instead I’ll try and narrow it down to my most favorite moments.
#1 Seeing Husband for the first time.
We decided to see each other BEFORE the ceremony. Thank God! I was so nervous, and seeing him beforehand reassured me that everything would be okay. And seeing his reaction of seeing me was priceless. (Can’t wait to get those pictures in!)
#2 Having my dad walk me down the aisle.
#3 The actual ceremony.
One of our best friends married us. He got licensed specifically to be our officiant. His speech was perfect, hilarious, and touching. I’ll be posting that as soon as I get a copy! Also, Husband and I wrote our vows. We were both really nervous about this, but I’m so glad we did it. It was meaningful and real, and I guess I’ll have to post those too!
#4 This moment.
Everyone of us got our own private viewing area for the fireworks show in EPCOT.
#6 Introduction Dance
We entered our reception to “Party Rock” by LMFAO, and somehow convinced our entire bridal party to put on gold chains, 80’s sunglasses, leopard print and neon accessories, and sun visors. They each did a special little routine as they entered the room and definitely got our party started!
#7 The speeches….OMG the speeches.
My sister and Husband’s sister are ridiculous. They gave us a speech that turned into the famous scene from Bridesmaids. It led to them speaking to me in different languages, staring me down, and even singing to me. For Real. It ended with everyone in the wedding party coming up and singing a song from the Hangover…with the lyrics changed to this…
“What did Peter dream of when he worked on the jungle cruise
Did he dream of playing Portal, or that girl in the bathing suit.
Don’t you worry your pretty blonde heads, we’re gonna get you guys together to prepare to be wed.
And then we’re gonna thank the stars above that are two best friends have fallen in love
Love love lovey love love lovely love love loveeey love love
But since we’re not very good wedding speakers….we’ll just sing you this song.”
Seriously, how are we friends withe the most awesome people?
AND, after all of that madness, one of Husband’s best friends gave us another incredibly sweet speech! I’ve never felt so much love.
#8 The Dance
Besides getting all of our closest friends to come to Disney, dress in neon and dance to “Party Rock”, and sing a speech to us…we also got them all to “learn” a dance routine to perform! Apparently, these people will do anything!
Recently, we fell in love with a scene from How I Met Your Mother. It’s a music video called “Let’s Go To The Mall” by Robin Sparkles. AND, the video game Just Dance made a really funny and stupid routine to it that we became obsessed with. Because all our friends are apparently willing to do anything, we all learned it, and did in front of all our guests.
Luckily, I brought an extra dress for the reception. I was so hot and sweaty from all the dancing, that I could not wait to put on dress #2 and dance the night away.
#10 The bus ride
After the reception, we had charter buses take everyone back to their resort. Somehow, Husband and I got our very own private charter bus take us back to the Polynesian Resort. The ride back was spent reminiscing about how perfectly awesome everything was, and how unbelievably fortunate we are to have so many people who love us enough to be there celebrating with us tonight. We could not have been any happier.
Now, I cannot promise that the wedding blogs are over…but, I’ll try not to be too obnoxious.
Thanks for reading!
Mr. and Mrs. Positively Panicked!
