I wish we would have made our own cupcakes like I originally wanted. We ended up hiring a bakery because there wasn’t enough time, but they weren’t anything like what I wanted. I hated that there were tuxedo cupcakes. I don’t like them, even mentioned this, but they made them anyway. They tasted great though, so there was a good side.

I would have been more insistent on keeping my music. I had a certain song in mind for the recessional, but changed it because of complaints from my parents. I still regret it; the moment wasn’t the same (and I loved the song that replaced it) and it just didn’t do it for me. Also, some songs ended up not getting played. The DJ would start to play some of these, and then the song would be changed immediately. I also wouldn’t have had a father/daughter dance.

I also would have insisted on walking myself down the aisle. There are absolutely no pictures of me smiling coming down the aisle and I hate it.

There was also drama about the reception ending early, because some people wanted to socialize more. I wish we would have known about this, because we would have seen if there was some way to have made it work out. We had a fake exit for the cameras, so it would have been doable.

I loved my wedding and would have changed just a few things.

I would have made the break music for the band. I emailed them a list of songs to play on break and they downloaded them onto a laptop.  Some songs were cut short and had we made a cd we would’ve known this and fixed it.

I would have rented my chairs and dinnerware from another rental company.  Our rental company is claiming we damaged chairs and the dinnerware was returned dirty.  They weren’t we even have the venue backing us on that.  But who would’ve known they were going to be this way post-event.

 

I wish I would have drank one of our special drinks we had made up. In fact I wish I would have had a least one drink besides the champagne toast.

Other then that I enjoyed everything

Most of all I loved having my family and friends all in one place..

 

however..the DJ lost our entire song list..so the music was only so so..and old people ish

I felt like I was being pulled in so many different directions and didn’t have that much time to acutally party

couldn’t drink b/c I wouldn’t have been able to pee

Didn’t like the way the cake looked

forgot to have the nighty and other esentials delivered to the room so I had to sit there in the lobby waiting for my family member to bring it to the hotel after the reception

lol…all in all though..it didn’t matter

I’m not even married yet but I think I would have had a destination wedding–that was my original idea.

I would have changed some minor details – I wish we could have gotten more group shots (if it hadn’t downpoured!).

I wish my dress was pulled up half an inch – would have saved me tons of pain!

I wish (again if it hadn’t rained) the timing of the dinner/dancing etc would have been better.

I wish I could have eaten more of the appetizers – they were GOODD!!

Wish I could have had more appetizers and dinner..hardly ate anything! Wish our photographer took more creative photos (but I didn’t mention them beforehand so I can’t fault him-the ones he took were amazing though!)..wish the reception lasted all night-went sooo fast! Wish my bustle held. It fell apart half-way thru the reception even with 7 ties! That’s it. Everything else was great!

I am not married yet, i have another 18 days to go.  So far what i would change would be, not having such a BIG wedding party.  WE have 8 attendants each and 2 ushers and it is a ton to keep up with.  Plus all the drama that comes along with it.  Plus one of the biggest things i’ve learned through this whole process, is how true some of my friends and family are and so untrue some of them are.  You learn a lot about your friends and family, when planning the wedding of your dreams.  I’m just excited to be marrying my best friend : )

I wish I had tasted our passed appetizers during cocktail hour – we missed out on crabcakes! Also wish we had taken more wedding party pics, more photobooth pics, and pics of each table. Definitely would have assigned someone besides our DOC to handle the music as she couldn’t figure out how to work the laptop and messed up our ceremony music multiple times. But in the end these are the little stories that you end up retelling and they get funnier over time!
