- Wedding: July 2010
i been always afraid to talk to you, because my english is not good enough to express what i need to say. today i feel that i need to tell you what happened in my wedding day.
i had a destination wedding the place my husband and i choose was beautiful, seaside, a dream come true for both of us. On the same day of the wedding there was a tropical storm and although it only rained for two hour before the wedding stared there was a stong windy and made all floral arrangements fall. the decorator had to fix everything, and make small floral arrangements, not in the style i was looking to have in my wedding day. the wind was so hard that our gazebo flew through the air (two times) and because of that the organizer and decorator chage the ceremony place.
what makes me angry is that we (the organizer, decorator and i) went three time before the wedding and the wind was always strong, so strong that the plastic chairs were always lying on the floor. And i asked if everything was ok with the wind, and they said that they had everything under control.
If they saw the gazebo fly way, why they dind’t atached to the floor. we end up having our ceremony in front of the music band,not with the sea behind us like we wanted.
There were many details that were missing and for which we pay, for example one of the special details about the wedding was the cake buffet, the idea was to have cake and several creams, ground almonds and fruit coctel, like that people could choose what they wanted. The cake, the creams, the almonds and the fruit coctail was deliverd on time by the bakery staff, but again the decorator made a mistake and did not bring the containers, or lay the table for the buffet, my mother ended up serving the cake herself from the containers in which they came.( not elegant at all) but every one liked the cake and the fact that they could choose their favorite flavor.
Another thing was the music band, which the organizer choose with my specification of no Inappropriate music (i dont know how to explain, but i told them what type of music i like) and thats one of the thing they did, they plaid inappropriate music, my mom wanted to cry. it was so embarrassing.
believe it or not all that time I spended with a smile, in spite of all the mistakes, it was the happiest day of my life, I believe that happiness flowed through the skin. but the next day was not good at all, when we realize all the details missing, believe me there were many, and all the money we had lost.
-choose a good organizer, (THIS IS MY BESTTTTTTT ADVICED) my wedding was one of the most disorganized wedding i have seen ( thanks God only we knew about it) my organizer didn’t know how to handle the situation (my husband spend all the morning trying to help them, couse the forgot some items, at the end they didn’t use) she even yell at my mother. you can image how disappointed i am.
-choose the band youself, and give then a list of what you like.
-Give the fotographer a list of must have. that day you are not thinking rigth, you need help, this list is going to make evey one happy, couse you won’t forget to take a pic with your favorite uncle, and the next day you won’t feel like “OMG i dont have a pic with…….” 🙁
– You can’t make every one happy, you have to be happy. no matter how many calls i recived that day (telling me how bad everything was) i stayed relax, don’t run, don’t cry, just tell them to resolve, that’s why you are paying them.
sorry for my english, i wish i could explain my self better.
i have so much to tell you but i have to go, so ……… to be continue
Next, some pics
