Your dad and your husband high fiving at the alter– that is priceless!

 

My wedding day was awesome, but of course some things went wrong:

The morning of the wedding, getting ready at a family friend’s house with my BMs (an hour away from my apartment), I am in the shower doing a mental checklist of what I need to bring with me to the salon to get hair done: flower hair pins, shirt that doesn’t go over my head, veil… then I realized I had left my veil in my apartment.  I got our of the shower and told my BMs “you know how I said we’d forget something… well I realized what it was!  Oh well”  Thankfully my sister was wonderful enough to drive all thr way to my apartment and get the veil and bring it back.

At the reception, the DJ was late setting up, so we stood outside the venue for what seemed like forever waiting for him to get set up so we could make our entrance

Some of my table numbers were put on the wrong tables  I was pretty pissed when I found out. Not because there was a mistake, but because instead of fixing the issue asap, my DOC and the coordinator at the hotel just stood their like dumbasses. if there are eight people and six chairs at one table, and six people and eight chairs at the table next to it-tell the guests to switch tables duh. The rest of my day was fabulous and they did a wonderful job with everything else, so I try not to think about it.

i’m very impressed by the fact that you laugh/smile over the things that other brides cry about for months after their weddings. Weddings can still be perfect without being 100% perfect [if that makes sense] I smiled over the hi-five part.. that would definitely make an awesome photo.Funny/odd/strange things i’ve witnessed at weddings:

 When the minister asked if anyone knew of any reason why the couple couldnt be married, the groomsmen all stood up and raise they hands (this was kind of a bad joke) a bride refused to say the line “for richer for poorer” she just kept saying “for richer for richer”a bride wore a huge tulle ball gown that was too long and kept stepping on the dress which gave her a strange walksame bride wore a slipper heel and kept stepping out of the slipper because I guess it was too looseat my brothers wedding, he gave me the ring boxes to guard with my life and I did just that.. but once we arrived at the ceremony and it was time to go down the aisle, we opened the boxes and one ring was missing!!!! turns out a nosey house guest has taken a sneak peak of the rings when they were on the counter and left the ring outside the box..so we had to stall the bride and go back for it!!

I went to a wedding where the officiant showed up an hour and a half LATE and DRUNK.  He ruined the entire ceremony and because he was late, the couple had an hour at most for photos.  I felt so bad for the bride and the wedding party! 🙁

it’s always good to remember that once the day comes, we should just relax and let go…things will go wrong but everyone will still have a great time.

@ritsi_bitsi: well, except for that. that’s just….wow. so wrong.

@summerbvt: I’m glad that you didn’t let any of that ruin the day for you Smile. It makes me so sad to read posts about brides who “hated their wedding day” because silly little things go wrong like forgetting certain decorations or music getting played at the wrong time.

Here’s what I’ve seen:

*It started raining during one outdoor ceremony. Of course the officiant ended up shortening everything so we could get inside.

*In one the band did suuuch a bad job with the ceremony music (all they needed to do was play a CD). It kept cutting out while everyone walked down the aisle.

*The buffet running out of food before everyone went through it (me included!).

*A beutiful outdoor ceremony being overrun with locusts. They were so LOUD!

@ritsi_bitsi: Wow! Drunk, hour and a half late officiant is worse than my 45 minute late officiant who blamed me for not giving her directions which she never asked for even after I askled her repeatedly if she needed anything. She wrote us a nasty letter saying we’re going to get divorced, go to hell, and she felt bad for us.

I love reading the not a big deal stories.

the for richer or richer things is awfule!

I went to a wedding where the groom is notorious for how cheap he is and at the alter he said “For richer and…..” he just stalled and then said it…I thought it was tacky.
