- Wedding: May 2013
Hi all! Im so happy to have been a part of this board! I actually had a year to plan my wedding and believe it or not I used to do this for a living but paying for it yourself cash… really changes things! I was a floral designer and ended up with NO flowers!.. eek.. just didnt have time! I think if there is one thing I really wished I had it was a wedding planner to do this for me because it’s hard to enjoy your day when you are running around trying to make sure things are done.
It was stressful but all in all.. the most important thing is WE ARE MARRIED! and …. brace yourselves I found out the next morning that the newest member of our family walked down the isle with me!
I had someone run to michaels to grab some purple flowers the morning of… so I could wrap them up for the bridesmaids. (I was so ashamed of the lack of flowers, embarrassing for a floral designer huh?)
and… this is the sort of thing that made me wish I had someone handling things, I gave instructions to please put the escort cards on this little table.. this is the mess that happened and because of that more than half of the guests didnt pick it up probably because they couldnt find it!
Aside from no flowers on any tables and stuff not being done the way I wanted.. it was a nice day beautiful weather and everyone had a great time!
yikes… no flowers on the isle…. and the minister plopped an ugly huge box like stand and speaker box.. in FRONT of the pretty curtain and antique vanity that I had set up for the altar…
and… someone parked a ton of cars BEHIND my altar… yikes!
oh well… at least we all looked good. hahaha Coctail hour never quite got set up… chocolate fountain got messed up because whoever turned it on didnt put any oil in the fountain and it got frozen up .. so …. that was the centerpiece of coctail hour. My advice, … do NOT trust friends and family to handle their tasks, no matter how they assure you it will get done. HIRE someone!
Thank goodness the fruit arrived… for coctail hour, but no one was there to open the bottles oh well. haha
at least half of the table decorations made it onto the table… who put those tiny tealights on top like that instead of in the mason jars.. who knows..
With all of the glitches… THIS is what matters!!! <3
