What you described seems VERY minor. There will always be little things that go wrong and every bride has their moments — nobody is perfect. It sounds like you had a wonderful time aside from the small amount of rain.

You are most likely just being extra critical of yourself and overanalyzing things — I am bad about this too!

I’m sure it was a wonderful wedding — post pics when you get them in!

I lost my cool in the morning getting ready in front of my family and vendors. I only felt bad if in any way that prevent my family enjoying themselves for the rest of the day. I found out it didn’t affect theM so I didnt let it bother me anymore. 

I lost my cool in the church post ceremony because my bridesmaids took forever getting to the altar for photos. And I am not ashamed of it haha. They were a pain in the butt to manage and no way they were going to cut into my photo session. Not ashamed because it’s my wedding, worked hard for months for this and everyone knows weddings are stressful and they’ll understand 🙂 

Who won’t understand are anyone who didn’t plan a weddiNg in their life, and these were the exact people that made lose my cool in the morning! 

Get it out of your head that you had to be that cool Zen bride. One of my friends told me I looked tired and in truth I was, I was up making favours the night before and shouting at people haha 🙂

Meh… everyone’s their own worst a critic. I posted a recap of my wedding a while back and I critiqued it as well. But at the end of the day, guests only care if they are well fed, well watered, not uncomfortable, and not inconvenienced. They will never be as critical as you will be!
