Bride's answer: Getting hummed down the aisle by my guests. It was so cute that I forgot how mad I was about the power outage.

Groom's answer: Finally seeing his bride coming down the aisle.


Place: 2 week Mediterranean cruise

A memorable moment of the honeymoon: Sharing a picnic lunch along the canals of Venice.

Be prepared. I had job lists for everything that needed to be done before the ceremony so I wasn't fielding questions all day. It worked out well. Don't expect that grown adults will know where to seat themselves. Assign chairs for immediate family for the ceremony and assign people to tables for the reception. I was talked into hiring a videographer at the last minute and I'm so glad I did. There's so much you just don't see or can remember. Something will go wrong, expect it. The best advice I heard is that the bride sets the tone for the wedding. If you're having fun and rolling with the punches, your guests will be as well.
