I promise once I get settled I will give you all better details and photos….
I arrived home last night from weeklong trip to Vegas where I got married. The trip was lovely until the day of the wedding. Here’s a quick update.
- The groom was sick. (We all thought it was a awful hangover, turns out it was food poisoning
- Caesars decided to do an unannounced bathroom remodel 3 hours before the wedding to our room causing everything to be relocated to another room. All they offered was $100 food credit for the trouble
- Everyone kept pulling on my hair, it fell out before photos were done
- The restaurant was not ready for us pushing everything back
- It took an hour to get drinks at our after party because Fis mom wanted his underage sibling to stay
- My mother was so drunk she stepped on my dress to the extent that it not only broke my bustle but created a huge pull in the fabric at the bustline
I know at least we’re married and thats all i wanted but I am soo not ready to laugh about it. Thanks for listening.

I’m so sorry!!!! 🙁 Sounds like the venue was very difficult to you the day of. I can’t believe they only gave you a $100 food credit for all the trouble they caused. I think you should write to the manager or something.

Ugh, that totally sucks. I would definitely rage-write the manager if I were you.

Don’t stress about it too much, I know it’s hard. I was dwelling on all the little things that went wrong at our wedding (rained out of our outdoor ceremony, DJ completely screwed up ceremony music selections and then his “computer crashed” during the recessional, rental company did not send all the pieces for table arrangements, the list goes on) but as time passes, you start to forget the bad things and just think about the good things. I promise! I swear I came back to the bee and put a GIANT list on a thread somewhere of all the things that went wrong right after I got back from my honeymoon, and I can’t even remember half of them anymore. The joy of the day and marrying your best friend is the only thing that matters 🙂
Can’t wait to see pictures though! I bet you looked absolutely beautiful!

oh no 🙁 I’m sorry to hear all that! What a bummer. You should get a massage or treat yourself to something nice to take your mind off it. Maybe an expensive dinner with the NEW DH??

@MASPA: I’m wondering if you are feeling any better about your wedding 6 months later. I got married last night and so many things went wrong – I’m completely depressed about it. Just wanted an idea of when this feeling might go away. It sounds like you handled your situation well!

@mseagles: eh it still sucks a lot, but I refuse to let it get to me. I can’t do anything about it Now. Heck I couldn’t do anything about it then. I’m sorry your day didn’t go as planned either, but I bet you looked amazing.

@MASPA: Sorry you are still feeling that way, but you’re right there’s nothing we can do about it so no point being upset. We’re still married!
