I remember being very upset after my wedding due to some things that happened during the ceremony and reception. To list some, my FIL convinced the priest (his family friend) to have the majority of our ceremony in Vietnamese right before it started rather than keep it bilingual as we’d planned. He also heckled my husband and I during our first dance. Also, the 45×36 in. framed portrait of hubby and I which was displayed at our reception fell and broke in the middle of our reception. The easel the reception hall provided had a broken leg which they duct taped it without telling us! These memories used to almost bring me to tears after the wedding when I thought about them, but now three months later, I just shrug and am glad I’m married.
Has time healed some of your painful wedding moments? If so, how long did it take?

I’m so sorry that happened.
For me, my grandmother did not attend my wedding, intentionally because of a long standing family conflict that did not even involve me. It was hurtful, but I am glad I am married and decided to end all contact with her.

I forgot to put my veil over my face as I walked down the aisle. Something I had wanted to do since I was a little girl. But nerves got the best of me.
Our cake was lopsided. We left a message the night before for the caterer to NOT display it. The message didn’t get passed on to staff and it was displayed for all guests to see and laugh at.
The LED lights we bought to put in our lanterns weren’t bright enough to light the lanterns.
We hung the laterns with brown yarn instead of clear string because I completely forgot to get clear string.
The guy’s boutinerres (sp?) wilted during our pictures.
But for the most part, I’m over it now…

I posted my wedding day irritations months ago in another thread – I’m over them unless I start thinking/focusing on them – which I do very seldom at this point – yay!

Absolutely! We were vehement about not having children at our large, private club wedding reception. I heard a child cry while at the alter and then the kid was running around the reception and even got on stage with the band while the lead singer picked him up and seranded him. To make matters worse, it was DH’s Uncle’s Daughter-from-a-previous-marriage’s son. Why was he there? I was so upset. Now I just laugh. Whatever!

I was upset that my DH didn’t have any really beautiful photos of him taken like I did. We were so caught up in all the other photos that I guess he never stood for any nice photos in the church or at our photo location. We didn’t notice until 4 months later when we were making coffee table books. We didn’t let it bother us for long.
This stuff doesn’t bother me but our DJ forgot to turn on some of the lighting they did, we forgot to hand out special favors to certain people and I saved a bottle of perfume for YEARS, being careful not to use too much becuase I wanted to wear it for my wedding day. Guess what? Forgot to put it on.

I’ve forgotten/gotten over everything but my mother screaming at me in the days leading up to the wedding. My grandmother died 3 weeks beforehand, so I think it was her grief coming through, but i’m not sure i’ll ever really totally get over it.
