Most memorable moment of your wedding day? Walking down the aisle to the accapella group’s rendition of Etta James’ “At Last.” I felt like I was dreaming.

Any advice for those planning now? Get legally married before your wedding. It reduces stress and allows you to focus on the celebration itself. Also, hand pick your guests and keep the list limited.
