You know that feeling? When you eagerly await attending a wedding of a close friend or family member? The excitement for the couple is palpable and you can’t stop smiling because it’s such a great day to celebrate. You are exuding joy and can’t wait to get on the dance floor at the reception? The enthusiasm for that day even makes up for the sometimes annoying dress fittings you have to do.
Having been a part of a number of weddings as a guest, part of the bridal party, or the planning team, we’ve seen our fair share of special days, and we think we’ve narrowed down our favorite parts of the day. There’s no denying there are other great parts of the day, but if we had to narrow down the list (we know – it seems like an impossible job!), here it is. Let us know in the comments how your list compares to ours!
- The Dresses
Whenever we see the bride for the first time, we get giddy! We love seeing how the dress matches her personality, what accessories she chose, and how dang good she looks! And even better than that, is knowing how much she is making the groom swoon. If you happen to be in the local area, we highly recommend checking out Tamzen’s Bridal at Butler Manor for some gorgeous dresses and some of the kindest people in the business!

You have to admit, we all look forward to the reception for a few key things – and dinner and cake is at the top of the list! For us, we love a beautiful presentation on the plate, but what we REALLY care about is the taste. O, and shoutout to the couples who plan the non-traditional desserts that satisfy our sweet tooth!
This one is hard to nail down, but mastering a good atmosphere requires a venue with a great view, a DJ who knows how to keep the dance floor bumpin’, and the people who mean the most to you. Striking this balance is like striking gold!
4. The Look on the Groom’s Face
Can we all agree this is by FAR the best part of any wedding? Seeing the groom’s expression when he sees his bride for the first time always triggers the waterworks. Between our streaming tears, our hearts are exploding with joy and love for the couple, and acts as a sweet reminder of our own special days. This single moment definitely takes the cake as the best part of the day!
