- Wedding: August 2012
I just got married onnaugust 26, and it was the greatest day of my life. Couldn’t sleep the night before, but hair and makeup showed up on time, everyone was looking beautiful. The photographer came to my parents house first we were getting ready, and immediately started taking more pictures of my dog than me. But don’t worry, there were plenty if pictures of me too 🙂 we got really lucky with the weather, took pictures in a park, even got to take a picture with a few friendly cowboys riding around in the park!
We had a gorgeous chuppah, beautiful flowers. The bouquets weren’t exactly what I wanted, but whatever. None of th groomsmen matched, the best man had a gold vest and tie, one groomsman had a black vest and bowtie, the other groomsman just a black bow tie because of some tuxedo drama, but that really doesn’t matter either. My sister ripped her dress getting into the limo. My groom misspoke during his vows. The water feature inside the venue just outside the entrance into ethe reception area overflowed right at the start of cocktail hour. Our ring boys forgot to get tuxedos. My 15 year old cousin caught the bouquet instead of my sister like we planned, since her boyfriend caught the garter. I fell asleep on our wedding night instead of doing what we planned by the tme my husband finished bruhing his teeth. I completely forgot all the dance steps from the routine we practiced for the last 4 months, so we just did a regular dance.
Despite all the mishaps and snafus, our wedding day was perfect and I married the most perfect person. The only thing I’m really upset about is that our venue didn’t give us the bottom layer of our adding cake, which was the tastiest layer. My parents thought his parents took it, his parents thought mine did. By the time we realized nobody had it, it was the next evening. I even remember my dad saying to the venue guy that he didn’t really care for anything but the weeding cake, that was the one leftover he really wanted. Oh well.
My advice to brides? Don’t sweat the small stuff. Things go wrong, you may not get the flowers you thought you would, things will happen, but as long as you keep a smile on your face, the wedding day will be perfect. Other people will think it’s perfect as long as you keep a smile on your face. At the end of th day, it’s not so much the wedding day that’s the most important, but how your lives are afterwards.
