Wedding? What wedding?

This is a bit of a shout out to PrincesseEmma, a new reader who is a self-confessed wedding junkie. Any questions you have about weddings, mine specifically, feel free to ask in the comments and I'll reply. And any other regulars, if there's anything you wanted to know, or anything you want to ask in hindsight, feel free :)
If you're new to the site and want to have a gander at my wedding, photos can be found here

Ok, here I go... The photos answered some of the questions I would've asked but I was wondering... Where was your wedding dress from?(I loved it!) What did you walk down the aisle to? What song did you dance your first dance to? Did you throw the bouquet? Did you do traditional vows or write your own?
And don't worry, I'm sure I'll think of more!
P.S. This is connected, do you mind sharing how he proposed? If it's private that's ok!

Hey Emma, ok here goes :

Where was your wedding dress

It was by a designer called Elizabeth Varga and we actually
stole the style, my mother's friend is a dressmaker who makes wedding gowns and evening wear and she came to shop and looked at it, and the helpful girls from one of the bridal forums helped me find a picture so she could copy it exactly. I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on :)

What did you walk down the aisle to?
A friend of mine learnt the sheet music for (Everything I Do) I Do it For You by Bryan Adams and she played it on the piano. Its been my favourite song for ever! Our friends got married a few weeks ago and had it playing when they signed the register and I started crying just hearing it.

What song did you dance your first dance to?
Amazed by Lonestar.

Did you throw the bouquet?
Yes I only had one bouquet and I threw it. It was an orchid bouquet so it wouldn't have preserved anyway and I find the practice a bit weird. I mean what are you really going to do with it in 10 years, even if it IS framed.

Did you do traditional vows or write your own?
We got married in a catholic ceremony so you don't get to write your own vows, but I found a lovely little poem for when we exchanged rings (which the priest almost forgot on the day, because he's so used to saying what he always says, he had to read it out of the order of service). I was glad we didn't have to write our own vows in all honestly, there's so much pressure on the day with everything else and I couldn't have coped with the idea of coming up with "perfect" words for my vows. It was good being able to just hand that part over.

My wedding was a year ago and I'm still whoring myself over other people's wedding plans. I'm such a sad loser.

Did you joing a wedding forum like me? Sadly, I admit I still visit mine.

I think I need therapy! LOL

Hahaha thats ok K, we all have different interests.
I did join a wedding forum, for the life of me I can't remember the name of it though. So weird.
It was really good at the time, but I remember it also got really bitchy and catty and I stopped reading. It was good to find specific information, but for general discussion it became clear that some of the main contributers wouldn't accept anyone's viewpoint but there own, so it became this giant love/wank fest.
I thought I would go back, there were heaps of girls that contributed that had already gotten married, but I found i could only take so much wedding! LOL

I must say - its both catty and getting incrediably repetitive. There is only so much of new people asking the same questions over and over...

I hope it'll pass soon but I'm a BM next March and I know my Bride is relying on my expertise!

Aha I remembered in the car last night. I was into The Bride's Diary forum, it was so addictive, and now that you mention it, I think it was the repetitive nature of the questions that I stopped reading in the end. I remember before my wedding i would sit there all day at work constantly hitting refresh for new topics.

Some more questions...Did you enjoy planning the wedding? What was the most stressful part? Did you feel different once you were married?
