I just have one tiny thing… because trust me i LOVED my wedding and had the time of my life! But. In our final details meeting with the coordinator (who works for the venue, I did not hire an outside planner) we stated that all beer would be served in glasses. They cannot get tap beer, it’s all in either bottles or cans but would be poured into glasses when served because this is obviously classier and more formal. Well at my wedding what do i see?? People with CANS of beer in their hands! CANS!! I don’t mind bottles, but cans make me think frat party or red neck wedding. I didn’t do anything about it because I was having such a good time anyway that I was like “uggg, oh well.” And thankfully our friends and family aren’t snobby enough to think anything of it…. but every time i’ve ever seen cans of beer at a wedding i just thought “ew” and then there they were at mine! I have no idea why the bartenders either didn’t listen to instructions or maybe they were never told in the first place. I just wish all the types of beer we provided (about 6 or 7, along with 4 wines and 2 sig. cocktails) had come in bottles cuz i really don’t mind that. I was happy when I had my bottle of corona while dancing cuz i am SO prone to spills lol! nothing classier than a bride with beer down her front… i’m actually a wino but that’s even more dangerous than beer to have while dancing! the bottles and cans make it much harder to spill then a drink in a glass, but still. i cringe when i see some photos with cans of beer on the table or in someone’s hand. ugggggg.
Although I acutally love the photo of myself and all my bridesmaids walking out to the trolley (in place of a limo) all with cans of none other than Miller Lite in our hands! LOL I find it hilariously ironic…
This was leaving my In-law’s house, after doing our First Look and meeting up with the groom and all the groomsmen.
Did anyone else have any nagging things that didn’t make you mad but you just thought “if only that could have been different”?

I’m not married yet, but I already know one thing that’ll bug me post wedding because it’s bugging me now.
I’m getting married on a yacht, and we’ll probably end up having 40 people total (including bridal party). The tables will be set up upstairs but the buffet and the bar are downstairs, and the stairs are pretty steep. So my guests will have to walk up the stairs with their plates food or drinks and they might even have to make two trips because they will probably need one hand to hold on to the railing. Ugh.
Everything else about this yacht is perfect for us, so it won’t be that hard to let it slide, but if I could change it, I would.

Our ceremony site hydrangeas!!!!! I didn’t even noticed until about a week ago (we’ve been married a month) but they were supposed to have been forward on the same level as us, but they ended up at the bottom of the structure pillars about 2 ft behind us. Not a huge deal, but once I noticed it, of course it was the first thing I noticed about all of our ceremony and formal shots! For the larger group formals, you can’t even see the plants since they’re behind everyone=(
DISCLAIMER – these aren’t the pro shots

I was a little disappointed in how the kids were allowed to carry on and do whatever they wanted, but if I had to go back I wouldn’t have had a no-kids wedding given our situation. To balance things out, they were so adorable and the life of the party. They probably saved my wedding from possibly being boring to some people.
Other than that everything was beyond perfect and I’d be so ungrateful to complain!

My bustle broke which was annoying because I spent at least 20 minutes away from the party in the brides room with my Maid/Matron of Honor, her two sisters, and their mom all up my skirt and we still couldn’t get it fixed. It wasn’t a huge deal but it made dancing kind of difficult. For some reason, I had strong suspisions it was going to break.

twalila – you’re ceremony looks like it was gorgeous! and OMG i have another similar irk about mine… we had these gorgeous huge floral arrangements on tall pillars that flanked the ceremony. loved them! and the plan was for them to flank the doors of the ballroom for the reception. well (and like you i didn’t notice this til i got the photos back) they were flanking the doors… on the outside! everyone was eating and dancing IN the ballroom, what were they doing hiding out in the lobby?? at least people could see them when they came back in from the cocktail hour, I’m sure that looked nice…. for 5 minutes. of course if i didn’t notice at the time, than neither did anyone else.
