I’m sorry you didn’t get a chance to really enjoy your wedding. I had a great time at mine, but I wouldn’t necessarily say it was the best day ever. I was extremely nervous until after the ceremony, and then I literally had no idea what to do. We didn’t have a coordinator, so we just kind of stumbled around asking each other if we should sit, cut the cake, have our dance…? We were confused and awkward, hah.
I’m so glad it’s over, though, and that we’re married. We haven’t gotten our pics or video back yet, and honestly, I’m OK with that. I don’t even want to look back. I just want to settle into being married, get my house back in order, and catch up on all the work that I missed.
I’m glad you’re feeling better about it now. You’re not the only one, I promise.

To bblove04   Great Post !!

Sadly society has made Weddings into a BIG “gotta get it right” Show.

And I blame this in on the fact that the world has now become a stage… and there is some sort of pressure that EVERYONE needs to be as much like a “Celebrity” as possible

More so with Weddings.

There is nothing wrong with the BIG White Pouffy Family Wedding with all the trimmings (I had one of those the first time)

BUT it does require a certain frame of mind to pull it off nowadays without it turning into a circus

Lol, when I got married the first time (circa 1980) Brides liked nice things, but we didn’t agonize over every.single.minute.detail

We picked a few things we liked, and got on with our lives with our SO / Fiance, and Friends & Family

Heck at my own Wedding, the Venue / Caterer went belly up bankrupt just 2 weeks before my big day

Sure there was a touch of panic… but at the same time, it was what it was… and thru the efforts of loved ones (and family friends) the issue was rectified, and all was well on My Wedding Day…

We had a Hall, a Caterer, a Meal I liked, a Bartender, and a DJ.  And the room was filled with Loved Ones.  I sure as heck didn’t sweat the “mismatched” tablecloths (altho they were ALL White).  I still had my napkins and centrepieces to tie everything together, so life was good.

Besides, not 30 minutes earlier I had married my Hubby and was on Cloud 9 !!

NO ONE was going to take that feeling away from me

This time round…

I did Elope.  And absolutely NO REGRETS

Mr TTR & I ran off to be married over the Christmas Holidays at a favourite Beach Destination.  The Wedding was just the 2 of us and our Officiant & Photographer.  10 Minute Ceremony, 20 Minutes of Photos… sand, surf, sunset.  It was perfect.

Then we went back to the Hotel for a Celebratory Drink, and a Dinner Reservation at a favourite Restaurant.  Followed by a night in an incredibly GORGEOUS Honeymoon Suite overlooking the moonlit ocean with 1000s of stars (we left the doors open all night to hear the waves).  It was FABULOUS

And yes, the next Morning even better… waking up to a FANTASTIC Day as Mrs TTR and Room Service… a truly AMAZING FEELING

None other like it.

Weddings are great… Honeymoons are even better
