- Wedding: October 2012
Hello All October 2012 Wives (we are no longer bride’s)
I hope everyone had an amazing ceremony, reception, honeymoon and celebration.
I wanted to get a full wedding recap from everyone with a few basic question.
What was perfect?
What was excellent?
Wht was good?
What was bad?
What was ugly?
Perfect: was seeing my husband reaction at the end of the aisle when I walked down. I haven’t seen him all day so it was great to finally see him all dressed up and waiting for me. I felt beautiful all dressed up and my husband loved it. Of course, the honeymoon. It was the best trip ever. It couldn’t have been better.
excellent: I have to say my ceremony was excellent. I loved every minute of it and can’t wait to see the video. It was fun, light hearted, romantic and quick. Our first dance was also excellent. We did a dance mix, which we only practiced it for about 5 minutes the night before and in the end, we got a standing ovation from all of our guest. It was fun. The food was excellent and the venue really pulled it all together for me. The DJ was great (never mind he was my brother, lol).
Good: The surprise ladies dance was fun. We ended up having about 8 girls do the dance. So I know all the guys was surprise and I can’t wait to see the video. The photo back drop and the video shot outs. It was a nice touch to the night. Our signtaure drinks was a big hit. I was so surprised on the number of gifts and cards we got. We only had 51 guest. And 30 of them was out of towners. This was a super good.
Bad:I left the pettie coat at home so I had to call my next door neighbor who was already 5 minutes away from the venue to turn aroound and drive back to my home, find the sercet key and go into the house and get the pettie coat. Naturally, the ceremony started 20 minutes late. My poor husband had no idea what was going on and he didn’t think I was going to show, lmbo. All the little wedding detail I stressed throught my planning kind of went unnoticed. The venue lost a box that had the wishing vase in it, no one played with the “His and Her’s” playing cards, no one waved the celebration flags through out the night, I had like 20 leftover pairs of flip flops out of 30 pairs I bought. My cupcake stand was a mess, it was to light to hold the 6inch cake on top so we had to put the cake on the side.
Ugly: my photpgrapher was a nightmare, I am still dealing with him now. I asked for certain pictures and he didn’t even get them. We thought he was stoned or something because he was so out of it. Every picture he took he stopped to look at it via the digital screen. I told the owner in the beginning we only have 30 minutes to take group pictures so I only wanted certain looks. We spent like 20 minutes in 1 area and in the end he took about 3 picture. We had 2 locations to do group pictures. I was going to lose it. I called the owner and now he is trying to adjust or pictures because some of them came out so dark its not looking natural. Don’t get me wrong, the first hour of pictures looked bad but the last 3 hours was much better but I already changed my dress so I really don’t have pictures in my ceremony dress. My last ugly was my dad’s behavior. OMG, why did he even come. He didn’t smile the whole weekend. He didn’t speak to anyone. He didn’t even show up to my husband thank you lunch with the guys. And he ended up leaving the reception about an hour and a half into it. No one knew where he went then he comes back in regular clothes and seat in the corner. I had nothing to say to him, smh. To make matters worse, he kind of messed up the pictures because he didn’t smile and when everyone was close he was like 6 icnhes away. I might just crop him out of the pictures and call it a day.
So this is my wedding, perfect, excellent, good, bad and ugly.
