- Wedding: May 2011
Our day was perfect. There were a few mishaps that I’ll get to in a sec. but we were so reliecved that the rain that we had all week long broke for us and we had beautiful sunshine all day long. Now for the crazy mishaps that we can laugh about now: The bottom layer of our cake cracked and started leaning so we had to run upstaris and cut it right after our ceremony (with just the bridal party and our parents), our officiant was found drinking at the bar before the ceremony started, he stumbled and mumbled a bit through the ceremony and clearly didn’t practice then he took off as soon as it was over with and never said congrats or anything. He also took off with our marriage license and we had to call him to come back. When he came back he was incredibly rude (but thats a whole other story). Oh, our flowers came late and they were all wilted and turning brown (thankfully I had silk bouquets).
Hmmm what else? Oh! We were not going to do the garter or bouquet toss but we ended up doing it at the end of the night which was great. I had an impromptu father/daughter dance to “Sweet Child O’Mine” which was quite unique, and we had a second entrance when I changed dresses to “I Gotta Feeling” which then got everyone up on the dance floor. All of this planning and the unplanned surprises and glitches were actually highlights of the night! It was amazing!!!
