- Wedding: July 2012
I can’t believe the big day has come and gone! Overall, it was absolutely amazing – details came together, all the DIY stuff gave it a personal touch, and our ceremony (which we wrote ourselves) was beautiful and touching. All amazing…and yet here I am thinking about the things that I’m sad we missed or didn’t do. The biggest regrets/guilt come around pictures and talking with people. Time just flew by with photos and we didn’t get all the combinations of posed pictures we wanted. I feel bad because my parents and my inlaws had wanted to do a number of photos we just ran out of time for. I also don’t think we did enough “fun” pictures or got enough pictures of us with our guests. I think we got incredible pictures of us, but feel bad about missing the others.
The other big thing is that we didn’t get to go around and greet all the tables. I know there are a number of people I barely got to talk too – because I was taking pictures or on the dance floor – and actually eating my dinner! I hope no one is upset, but I keep worrying about it. We had a lot of time to visit with people at the rehearsal dinner, which all our guests were invited too, but I still feel bad. Our wedding was relatively small – 70 people – family and close friends, very few “obligation” invites.
Other than that, I get stuck on some little things – my dad forgot to bring an adorable sign we handmade, my bridesmaid put my necklace on wrong and I didn’t notice until the end of the night, and in thanking our guests after the speeches, we forgot to specifically thank our parents.
Has anyone else experienced this? There was so much that could have gone wrong, but really, it was almost perfect! Why do I keep thinking about the little regrets? Help!
