Least favorite part of the day
We'll start with the bad.  My least favorite part of the day actually started the day before the wedding day when my mom and I were involved in a car accident.  I later found out (after a trip to the emergency room a few days later when I was in so much pain I couldn't go to sleep AFTER taking Vicodin) that my sternum had been cracked by the seatbelt.  Because of that I was in a good amount of pain the day of my wedding.  I was given Vicodin and very strong Ibuprofen for the pain and because I didn't want to be totally dopey all day I stuck to the Ibuprofen.  It definitely helped by but the end of the evening I wasn't doing too hot.  I remember being in our hotel room after the reception and I actually started crying because my chest hurt so bad.  I definitely wouldn't wish this on ANY bride.

Favorite part of the day 
I honestly can't pick one thing, so here's a list of some of my favorite things:

  • Watching When Harry Met Sally with my bridal party as well got ready in the morning.  I like to think my relationship with Dustin is kind of like theirs (minus the whole fake orgasm in the restaurant thing).
  • Walking with my dad to meet Dustin while all eyes were on us.
  • Our sweet, funny ceremony and all the laughs that were sprinkled throughout it.
  • Saying our vows.
  • My brother and sister in law crying a few tears after we all walked back up the aisle.
  • Walking into the reception to Wonderful Night by Fatboy Slim.
  • My matron of honor's ridiculous speech in which she completely threw me under the bus about a get together I had while my parents were out of town when we were all in high school.
  • Dancing with my dad to Vienna by Billy Joel.
  • Dancing with Dustin to We Are Man and Wife by Michelle Featherstone.
  • Doing shots with my cousins, who I hadn't seen in forever.
  • Hosting an impromptu after party in one of Dustin's friend's hotel rooms.

oh my ... you were a real trooper. I am so happy that you were ok, it could have been much worse.

All in all, it seems as though you had a very lovely wedding.

Accident aside, it sounds like your day was utterly magical Krysten. Though how you managed to get through it all with a cracked sternum and still look ridiculously gorgeous is beyond me! :P

I cannot believe you had a cracked sternum on your wedding day. How incredibly horrible. You got through it, but I cannot imagine the pain and frustration of that. You cannot even tell though- you look stunning in every wedding photo I've seen so far.


So glad all of the good, wonderful moments outweighed the bad of that special day!


You are so incredibly strong Krysten! I love that you had a movie playing whilst getting ready! That's wonderful :)

Oh my goodness you must have been in such a panic, what bad luck!! I got a sling about a week before the wedding and looking back, I probably should've worn it even just for one photo :)

Your wedding sounds like so much fun!
