*Sigh* I was married 3 weeks ago. Beautiful ceremony, but Im so disappointed in how our reception and our photgraphs went afterwards.
The moment I said “yes” was absolutely the best moment, but our photographer didnt capture my dress in good ?light? whatsoever so it looks like a plain white dress, you cant see the lace, beads, or any of the special things about it. “Dang it!”
I forgot my bouquet in ALL of my pictures besides where Im walking down the isle. “dang it!”
I forgot to switch my jewerly when I switched from my ceremony dress to my reception dress :/ Dang it!
I didnt get a single picture of my $200 boots I wore under my dress 🙁 big DANG IT!
Not to mention- our wedding and ceremony was literally over in 3 hours. No ONE stayed and danced. They came, watched, ate and left! Simple! And I spent 1000’s of $$$s on the PHOTOBOOTH and DJ! 🙁
I just cant believe how things were when you put so much TIME, EFFORT and THOUGHT into every little detail 🙁
Any suggestions to make me feel a little better?
Here is a picture of me in my euphora of light I guess.

@mrsjones1902: Right there with ya. Everyone left after they ate. It was suppose to end at 10 but ended at 8 instead. It was embarrassing to say the least. Move on though and look forward to the rest of your life. There is nothing you can do to change it. You are married to the man of your dreams(:

@mrsjones1902: I think you should do some after wedding photos, get the pictures of your dress that you really wanted. Sort of how some brides do a “trash the dress” but instead just give her one more spin around the block. I know it will cost some extra money, but weigh out the cost to pictures you want to look back on
hope this helps a bit. Thank you for posting and helping us future brides keep “dang it’s” in mind

@mrsjones1902: I had some similar issues with my photographer. For some odd reason the assistant photographer came to my parent’s house when I was preparing, and the main photographer went to the groom’s house. The assistant missed so many shots that I wanted regarding my dress, getting ready, etc. I was really upset so after speaking to my photographer, we decided to do a reshoot after the wedding. Of course it’s not as special, but the retakes of my jewelry, dress, etc will make it into the album with the rest of the photos. He also agreed to refund a portion of our money so that made us feel better knowing he was willing to work with us to rectify the problems. Maybe you can look to do the same?

I would schedule another photo session. Then you can get details on your dress, your boots, change into your reception dress WITH the jewelry, etc 🙂

@mrsjones1902: Sure, go home, rev up the s’more machine your Uncle Harvey gave you, crack open a bottle of champagne and celebrate being a married person! It’s over, you don’t have to stress about RSVP’s and timelines, menus, manicures, hair trials…that’s all behind you now….and whatever may lie ahead, I sincerely hope in includes the Nothing But Sweatpants stage…because it’s freaking awesome!
