Every bride and groom hopes that all of the time, energy and little details they put into planning their wedding result in unique and memorable moments shared with family and friends.

With that in mind, we asked some real Canadians to share their favourite funny, special and unexpected moments from their own nuptials.



1. Open mike night

"If our guests wanted us to kiss, they had to come up and tell a story or sing a song into a microphone at the front of the room.

It was so funny to hear stories about my husband that had never come out before and to have my oldest friends share so many entertaining stories about our adventures growing up."

-- Sarah, married three years, Montreal


2. Royal wedding

"We were married in St. John's, N.L., and on the day of our wedding there was also an air show featuring the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. During our ceremony, the Snowbirds actually flew over the church! This was especially exciting for me as I have always been fascinated by the Snowbirds. ‪‪

To top it off, on the night of our wedding we stayed at a beautiful boutique hotel in the same room that Prince Charles and Camilla stayed in when they visited St. John's. It was so luxurious and we certainly felt like royalty."

-- Allison, married three years, Ottawa


3. Getting to sleep after the wedding

"The most memorable moment of my wedding was being able to catch up on weeks of lost sleep after it was over!"

-- Elisha, married 10 years, Sherwood Park, Alta.


4. Making a grand entrance

"We hired a live band for our wedding dance and they suggested playing the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" when my husband and I entered the reception. All of our friends and family jumped out of their seats and joined us on the dance floor as soon as we entered. It really set the tone for a truly great night!"

-- Suzanne, married three years, Ottawa
