Oh, honey.  I’m sorry your wedding didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to and that people acted selfishly and things went wrong to affect your wedding day negatively.  That sucks!

I think you should absolutely hold a (small!) renewal ceremony if that’s what you and your Darling Husband want to do, it would be lovely.  Just invite your favourite people in the world and have the day that YOU two want.

Okay, that sounds pretty bad. But surely there were good things too?

If it means that muh to you and your husband, renew your vows at a later date the way you want to. Just remember that your wedding day is your  wedding day, you cant redo it, and at the end of the day you cant forget what happend. It might help to just find the humour in it?

I had so much go wrong on our wedding day too.. (photographer didnt show up.. cake wasnt made the way we asked… flowers were half way dead and about 10 daisies for the bridal bouqet instead of what we agreed on) …that we decided we would renew… and now we are.. almost 11 years later… it still stings when I think of those parts of the night.. but for the most part i think of all the good… HOWEVER…Im still sure not everything will go right this time around..but now Im ok with that.. Im more relaxed about it..   I say go for it… my wedding party will consist of my 3 kids ..our parents.. brothers and sisters and 1 family friend..and we will all be part of the wedding THATS IT ..no real guests… then we will have a party afterwards..with friends and extended family.. that will consist of fun, food, and music .. I hope you do it again.. just give it time in between

@mrswaite: Haha, well who cares what they’d think anyway, they’re not the important ones. 🙂

You’re very welcome and I completely understand that you’re not looking for a “do-over”.  I think a smaller celebration that you can both relax at and truly enjoy sounds like a great idea.  Now that more time has passed since MIL’s death, maybe your husband will feel more like celebrating this time as well.  Good luck to both of you!

Have you read any of the blogger posts by Mrs. Shortcake ?

She’s one of the older bloggers (from ’09), so you probably haven’t read her recap. Her flowers died (florist stuck them in the freezer instead of the refrigerator), her photographer made inappropriate comments and took bad pictures, it rained, and she cried at the reception because she was so disappointed.

Just thought that reading her recap might help you see that you’re definitely not alone in having several things go wrong on your day. I also remember there was someone (was it a blogger or just a regular poster? can’t remember) who had their dress stolen out of their luggage at the airport and had to buy a new dress off the rack days before her wedding.

I think in all of those situations, an intimate vow renewal ceremony is in order. And the best part about a vow renewal is that you only have to invite the people you really want to have there.

Oh Hun, that sounds really rubbish, I am so sorry. i thinkktrenewing your vows and having a small do is a really good idea.  I hope that you will get some new memories and some great pictures that will make up for how you feel the first one went.
