if i had known how it was going to be i would have put a LOOOOOT less work into everything!!
Aww, I'm sorry you feel this way! ;(
@hellosugar: oh no! Why do u feel this way?
Awe there were minor things here and there with mine that weren't 100% perfect but I wouldn't say mine sucked or anything. When we plan and plan and things don't go just right its hard not to get upset......but at the end of the day you are married!
Sorry you aren't happy....surely thou it didn't all suck did it?
no it all sucked hahaha
i really wish i had put so much less work in because i probably wouldn't be AS disappointed. it's been 3 months and i'm still pissed off!
Oh no! What happened? You got to marry the love of your life though right!?!
Why is it that you're so upset? What about it sucked?
@hellosugar: Oh no! Sorry things didn't go how you pictured. Where did you get married? Both of my FSIL's are planning weddings in Wilkes-Barre and I'd like to warn them away from your venue/vendors if possible. Feel free to PM me if that's easier.
@phillybride61513 we got married at my monster mother in law's house. our catering was absolutely phenomenal!! dente's in pittston catered
but did everything else go okay? you married the man of your dreams!
where to begin haha. i made a LOT of things myself.. all the bouquets (from felt/buttons), the boys boutonnieres, 98% of the decorations, my twin girls' dresses etc etc. we were up until 4 am the night before finishing the bouquets. woke up in the morning and went to get my hair done which went well. i had a very specific vision of the reception which i told everyone about but was not executed at all. the bottles and candles that i spent weeks decorating and making were left empty (they were supposed to have flowers in them/have the candles lit). most of the decorations weren't even up. my 2 year old twins were in an absolutely TERRIBLE mood because they were super sick. the dresses i spent 5 months making for them? they were in for a total of 5 minutes. my ornery-as-hell nephew ran around the entire time of our ceremony running around and screaming at the top of his lungs.. no one heard our vows. there are about 5 pictures of the wedding party and my husband and i because all day/night i spent inside with my girls or doing shit like cutting the cake etc (which i wanted to cut the cake/do toasts/bouquet toss/dances one after another because i didn't want to be having fun and then get pulled away every 10 minutes to do one of those... which is of course what ended up happening). 5 minutes before the ceremony we realized my MOH's shoes were left at my house (25 minutes away) and one of the groomsmens boutonnieres were missing. none of us got dressed together. i spent months collecting postcards and made a corkboard to use instead of a guestbook. people were supposed to leave advice/well wishes etc on the postcards then pin them on the board. 8/10 people that did fill them out just wrote their name and addresses on them and the other 2 were part of the wedding party that filled them out correctly. out of the 200 songs on the playlist i made i was outside for 2 of them. i'd say about 70% of people left without me getting the chance to say hi to them, and most didn't say bye. and since everyone left the wedding about 4 hours after it started we ended up going to the bar.. which at first was more fun than the actual wedding. until one of our "friends" from out of town decided to throw a fit and fight with her boyfriend which ended with both of them stomping off from the bar around 3 am and us not being able to find them for hours so we had to call the cops to find them.
but the food was good? at least what i got to eat of it haha
and a bunch of other shit that added up to a terrible day. if i could redo it we'd have just went away or had about 20 people there like i wanted but my monster mother in law insisted we have 10 million.
i think you should focus on the positives :) it sounds like there is a long list of great things that happened too! What is done is done.. things go wrong at every wedding and it is all out of your control. you are married! thats all that really matters.
Trying to be optimistic here...at least it's a day you won't forget. That's what a wedding day should be, I guess?
You have your husband and your bebes and that's all that matters.
I kind of felt the same way you do. My now husband woke up with a bad stomach bug at 5 am. My centerpieces were not my vision, and it was hot as hell at my outdoor fall ceremony. There were things that were not how I imagined them, but at the end of the day we were married. It did take me awhile to get over my husband being sick. It was one thing that I couldn't control. No one wants to be nauseous at their wedding. I'm sorry you feel yours was "sucky". I bet your guests don't feel that way. I know mine don't.
While there was some positives from my wedding but I barely remember the night. Everything was rushed and so many things went wrong. Ehhh...
@hellosugar: I know how you feel! But in the end, you married the love of your life so that's all that matters.
You keep saying monster in law but she is the only one you really haven't complained much about so far lol.
You are married to your wonderful husband and that is all that matters, and honestly if you had gone off and just gotten married, your monster in law would have been there anyway ruining shit anyway if that's what she does.
Sorry Your day was not as Grand. Just as all other bees said Your are married to your man that's all that matters.
On my day it was nice in the morning Humid but nice However, By 2pm time to walk down the isle. Rain and the a Hurricane Irene. So my day was just as bad as yours but we still had a great time I ended up making the best of it.
oh man! What i suggest is that you do redo your wedding, slavage what you can, and in a year re new your vouls and only invite those 20 ppl that you wanted too in the first plcae, have an intimate voul renewal!
i havent had my wedding yet but at my friends wedding a couple ended up fighing in their hotel room and it ended up keeping them up ALL night. it was so weird. my poor friends didnt get to sleep a wink on their first night. also she spend a lot of time on the cake and we all only ate 25% of it. but i think that fight ruined theyre night.
@hellosugar: mine was awful too. you are not alone!
My little sister's wedding sucked. She didn't want to have a wedding but her fiance did. She is horrible at planning things.
Really that doesn't sound like a sucky wedding. It sounds like a WEDDING. They are hectic, frantic, stressful and things never turn out like they looked in your head. I think almost every bride has a laundry list of stuff that went wrong. It's up to you to decide if the day sucked or not.
want to hear my list?
I had a sore throat, fever, and lost my voice; MUA got mascara in a bridesmaid's eye and ruined her contact lens; it rained so we had to go to our Backup location which was too crowded; DJ blew a speaker on the very first song; DJ in general sucked; one guest running late held up 20 others on a shared shuttle bus; last minute photographer swap; I forgot my deodorant; I forgot my perfume; best man super hung over; best man fucked up his toast in a major way; a friend and her boyfriend got busted trying to do the deed in the bathroom; the humidity shredded my hair; two no-showsjust oh and the shared ride shuttle tried to drop 25 guests off at the airport instead of our venue... And I'm sure there is more...
it was the very best wedding. Ever.
But at the end of the day, you got to marry the love of your life. Why not re-do your vows in five years and have the wedding you actually dreamed of?
Sorry to hear all that:( How did your FI/now husband handle everything?
