Are you still going on about photograph imperfections OP? I hope you confine it to here and don’t bore/ distress your poor new husband with it.

 For heaven’s sake, get some photoshopping done if you are determined to display the ass shot photos. Or, better, let it the hell go. Life’s too short. 

And your wedding photos are not going, one hopes, to be a major thing in your life forever. You’ll be surprised how little they matter after a while. Especially to other people.

Oh, Bee. People really do focus upon the faces and expressions–if you look happy in the photos everything else is great. 

I’m a perfectionist. I still understand that nothing in real life is perfect! The advice I received and share: no matter how well you plan, something will go wrong. Pretty much no matter what goes wrong, you will still be married. Focus on what matters–you are married to the love of your life. You shared this important celebration with friends and family. Choose a few wedding photos that you like to frame or post and the rest really won’t see the light of day after a surprisingly short period of time, really. You have a choice, the same choice everyone has–enjoy what’s good or lose yourself in what’s not.

My bustle was also off during photos. It was done wrong and all poking out everywhere. But, it doesn’t really matter all that much to me. I still look back on the day fondly and love my photos! Things were bound to go wrong and that was one of them. It’s honestly not that big a deal, at least not to me.

I don’t like every single one of my photos either. I look plain weird in some of them! So I just look at the ones I do like. I’m sure there are some pictures from the front or from the waist up where the bustle isn’t even visible. Just shrug and look at the ones you like.

This was one of the things that bugged me post-wedding. My bustle was BEAUTIFUL, but it wasn’t done right until I noticed it later in the reception, so first dance, cake-cutting, etc. photos all look funny. I just photoshopped the ones that bugged me…
