When he wasn’t a groom, this person noticed that he always had three to four things going on in his thoughts and an internal monologue that never stopped talking.

At that moment, the closest thing he had was pure joy.

So this guy was delighted it was a beautiful day for his bride. When he saw his wife, he could only think, “Thank goodness the sun came out five minutes ago, or she’s gonna be MAD.”

A second man who had an outdoor wedding at a nearby state park recalls that the forecast had been beautiful for the entire week leading up to the big day, but it drizzled on that day, and his bride was upset. But he thought kissing her with little droplets of water on her face was quite romantic while smiling. He acknowledges that it was the best moment of his life.

7. I’ll Do It Again

For this man, the big day, and the whole event, was the most amazing day he’d had. When she walked around the corner and started down the aisle with her father, he thought, “Wow- I’m doing it. And it feels right.” She looked beyond happy and proud. Then he started thinking that I had to get through the vows and hold it together.

This was someone initially against marriage due to family experiences and personal beliefs. But here he was, thinking he would love to do the whole day again. He changed his mind after witnessing a close friend (who was also against marriage like him) marry the long love of his life because he knew he was dying. Only then did he realize the significance of commitment and embrace marriage.

8. The Miserable Groom

One’s wedding day is the “wrongest” time to deal with a sensitive bowel. But such is the case of the white groom who had a Hindu wedding and was concerned that he would have an accident on stage during the entire ceremony.

He had eaten some bad food two days before the wedding. He had to rise and sit back down around five times during the ceremony while seated on the floor of the mandap, which he describes as a true test of his sphincter strength. Describing the situation as an “absolute misery.” But he prides himself in containing his situation so well that his wife didn’t sense his discomfort.

“What in the world are she and her parents doing coming around the side instead of down the aisle?” This was the exact thought of this groom. As per his explanation, the wedding ceremony was held in the open air, where the absence of walls might have led to a state of perplexity. Subsequently, they found it rather amusing.

10. A Breathless Moment

This man confesses to feeling breathless the whole time as he thought her to be more beautiful at this moment than he’s ever seen her as she walked toward him. Sometimes he had to make sure he was still breathing.

He felt a huge lump in his throat, his chest hurt, and he wondered if that was why he couldn’t breathe. “I didn’t pass out or anything,” he says. “I was, for the first time in my life, 100% breathless. It was scary and amazing all at the same time.”
