Woman to Marry Year After Being Paralyzed at Bachelorette Party


The wedding, set for Pittsboro, N.C., will feature Friedman's favorite flowers -- sunflowers -- and a country theme.

Albeit a bit untraditionally, Friedman says she and her groom will have a first dance.

"Yes, I'm sad we won't be dancing 'normally,' I wont be prancing around the floor, but we are going to dance," she said. "We are going to have our first dance."

"I'm just excited to be out there. It doesn't have to be perfect," she said.

Larry Friedman, Friedman's father, will accompany his daughter down the aisle although they won't be walking side by side.

As for the emotion going into her wedding weekend, Friedman says she can't stop smiling, but knows that her family and friends will probably be unable to hold back tears.

"I think everyone in the crowd will be crying, but I am just so happy," said Friedman.

"I'm going to be all smiles. It will be emotional, but it will be happy."

ABC News' Emily Friedman is not related to Rachelle Friedman.
