Who is a wedding for?

I know the wedding is for the bride and the groom.
But I have always thought that it is the Brides wedding.
She puts most of the work and effort into the wedding.
It is her day to shine and be beautiful.
My DF told me our wedding is my Day.
Am I wrong to think that this is my Day?
Of course it will be just as much as my DF's day too, but come on everyone knows the wedding is more important to the bride then the groom.

  • MIne was really for my mother. She eloped w/my dad at 16 and never had a wedding, I am the only girl, and was only 20 so the wedding was really her show, I just showed up. :)

  • We never had an actual wedding but I think it's always morethe Bride's day than the Groom.

  • My wedding was more my Husbands day. I wanted to go to Vegas. I wanted to get out of town have some fun with JUST my DH and I. Spend some quality time together. My DH wanted a big wedding with lots of people. I wish it would have been about me, and he had considered my reasoning for wanting to go away and do it.

  • I think that in a lot of cases is means more to the bride to have it be a certain way so it ends up being more about what she wants but I don't think it is technically any more the bride's day than the grooms. My SO is the type to just go with the flow and would probably agree to whatever I wanted for a wedding. But if he did have an opinion or something he wanted then I would consider it as important as my wishes.

  • Same here, my mother and father eloped so my wedding is more so for my mother. I think that the wedding is also more for the bride but not everyone thinks this. I guess I am being a bit of a bridezilla in others opinions.

  • my hubby gave as much time and attention to the wedding planning as i did. i didnt have a job so he payed for most of it. my parents paid for part but not a lot of the wedding. it was OUR day.

  • My mom/s day. I told her while we were planning I can't wait for my daughter to get married so I can plan a wedding. :-)

  • For my husband and I who had a small JP ceremony, it was for both of us. Personally I think that women who think it's all about them are BRIDEZILLAS! UGH!

  • I have always thought it was wrong to think it is 'just' the bride's day. Two people are getting married. Two people should be made over a little.
