Minae:  I’m so sorry that happened.

Twenty years from now that will be a great story, if it’s any consolation.

Solidarity sister. So far I have ordered twice the amount of invitations I actually needed (I accidently went by guest total. In reaility because of all the +1s and family units I needed less than half of what I ordered. Felt like such an idiot and I wasted $100.00 at least. 

Then I forgot to have the guests select chicen fish or beef on their invitations. I dont know what I was thinking. Lucking my the coordinator at our venue is a gem and we will offer guests both steak and chicken to eat. But seriosly how dumb can I be?!?!!!!?!

So dont feel so bad 🙂 I like to think of it like people do pregnancy brain – its bridal brain.. it can only do so much at once!

Ugh, I realized that I threw out my pretty hair piece–the night before the wedding! Haha, I sobbed hysterically for like 15 minutes and then the next morning, I couldn’t have cared less. I was all, “Yay wedding! Who needs a hair flower?!”

We are having a semi-destination wedding. My family usually isn’t really into weddings and a lot of them are older, so we invited 200, knowing a lot couldn’t or wouldn’t make it. We figured we would be lucky to get 75, given how other weddings in my family have gone. That way, we would be giving my entire huge family the chance to come if they wanted, since you never know who will show up for things and who won’t, and it’s one of those situations where if you invite one aunt, you have to invite them all, and if you invite one cousin, you have to invite them all.

We got 133 “Yes” RSVPs. This had quite an impact on EVERYTHING.

Yep.  Signed a contract where the vendor had the wrong wedding date on it.  By the time I figured out the error, they weren’t available on my actual wedding date. I cried.  We loved her.

Also, forgot to put my venue’s address on the invitation and hadn’t been planning on doing an insert  for address/directions.  Ended up having to print out little business card type things for people to stick in their wallet.

I’ve been so laid back and had the “just do it” mentality, I have obviously missed some details.

I mistakenly threw away one of my tiaras, purchased god knows how much jewelry because I keep changing my mind, probably 7 pairs of shoes, and 2 corsets and changed our colors from ivory to white. From all of my indecisiveness, I’ve probably wasted a good $500 or so, which is a good chunk of change for us.
