Believe it or not, we were both hungry and looking forward to McDonald's for supper! – Shuo Xian, 29, Project development 

I had some post-wedding blues. After the wedding ceremony that night, I was a bit upset that I didn't get to chat and drink with some of my close friends. – Pei Mei, 32, Associate beauty editor

When it was over..? My feet felt great! I had never wore heels for such long hours before. Well, as any married couple would attest to, after months of intense wedding planning, it was a huge relief that everything went smoothly. We are definitely still riding high on the love we felt that day. – Claire, 27, Self-employed

I felt absolutely exhausted, but also grateful that we spent the last 24 hours celebrating us. Was it the happiest day of my life? It was probably right up there with the day our son was born! – Amanda, Venture capitalist

I felt relieved and so happy to be a married man. – Danny, 35, Associate director

We felt so relieved! We went back to the hotel room, put on some music, drank and ate to our heart’s content, just laughing and talking about the crazy day we just had. We didn’t even change out of our outfits and I was in bedroom slippers. That’s another one of my favourite memories. – Carina, 28, Relationship manager

I wanted to do the solemnization all over again! It went by so quickly. We were just so happy! We also went to read each other's vows again just to relive the experience. – Derek, 32, Teacher

I wanted to relive it all over again! Halfway through our church ceremony, I turned to my husband and whispered that it was all flying by too fast and that I wished time would stand still right now. –Chelsa, 30, Civil servant

We were pretty relieved the day was done just because so much planning and coordination gone into it!

We were sad it was over in a flash, but happy we could kick back and breathe! – Vannessa, 25, Business director
