- Wedding: August 2010
Ok i need to get some stuff off my chest. Here it goes… i got married a few days ago and the wedding went great. I mean there were a few things that went wrong.. and i cant seem to get over it. Like i am obsessing over it and its not allowing me to say “my wedding was perfect”
The day before the wedding i went to a flower mart and got many flowers for like 200 bucks which is a great deal considering a florist was going to charge me like 900. So yea.. the night before the wedding we opened all the flowers(took them out of the wrappers) About 30 min later the roses started opening up so much!! LIke too much! to the point where i started freaking out. Anyway.. i was trying to be whatever about it because it really wasnt too much of a big deal. SO then that night we took the flowers to my wedding venue where the venue coordinator said she would allow us to put the flowers in the fridge. We put them in the fridge along with some hydrangeas which we kept in the box unprocessed. That night we also had out rehearsal.The venue lady had someone setting up everything in there already. They had done it really fast and brought some peace in my mind.After rehearsal i asked if we can help her a little so i would be more calm the day of the wedding. she said “sure” but seemed like we were a bit in her way i guess. After helping a little.. i really felt like we were in her way because she had another rehearsal right after and most of the stuff were already set up.
The WEDDING day comes around.
12pm – my hair appointment—- ends up taking a little longer than expected and im out of there by like 115
makeup at MAc takes forever because girl kept leaving me to help other customers when finally i told her i was in a hurry and that she should stop leaving. i ended up leaving this place by like 330. Then i had to drive back to the house to pick up my stuff….
ended up getting to my venue at like 415
Then i find out most of the flowers DIED!! can you believe this??Apparently the flowers in the fridge had killed the purple flowers(idk what they were called) and it killed the green button flowers as well. It totally sucked!! We had pre made out bridesmaids bouquets and the hydrangeas in them had died!!
The good thing is that some of the white roses did survive. Most had turned brown… but we still had some and thats all that mattered. I wanted to cry so bad… but couldnt because of my makeup.My sister cried for me. lol
anyway.. when i showed up we had time to trow 3 heads of hydrangeas(which survived in the box) per centerpiece and it actually looked good.
2 of my Bridesmaid or Best Man were able to trow together my bouquet and wrap it just in time. everyone was stressing out including me.. i just wanted to cry so bad. The DJ, minister and photographer were surrounding me trying to i guess talk and let me know what was going on. I didnt even have time to talk to them.. i was running around trying to trow crystals on the tables, and place the place cards. it was terrible!!!
anway..l i end up just leaving the reception area… after placing the cake topper and guest walking into the reception area.
I go to my changing room and cry to my photographer. she was so sweet and amazing and helped me calm down.
**** this is what went unplanned the day of the wedding***
– my makeup took forever that i ended up at the venue all late.
– our ceremony ended up starting 20min later. Instead of exactly 5pm. mainly because we had so much flowers to deal with on the other side.. some guest were in traffic which i guess made it better.
– i am mad at the venue coordinator because she made me feel very comfortable about the day of the wedding and i was very dependent on her because that is how she made me feel. she made me feel like she had everything under control and i hate that i trusted her.grr.
– the venue coordinator did not tie the organza material on the chairs or place it on pillars like we had agreed to. This made me mad.I mean i understand that she obviously coundnt do everything… but she did most of it the night before so i dont understand why she couldnt at least try to make it the way we wanted.I know i sound mean… but i wish she would have atleast told me that we had to do most of it.
-We did NOT have the time to do boutonnière for the guys 🙁 can you believe how terrible this is??? ugh. i just want to cry right now just writing this 🙁 But see.. no one even noticed…so whatever i guess.
– so yea… then later during the reception i notice the cake ribbon was the complete wrong shade of blue.(but once again… whatever right?) i still plan on letting the cake lady know. its just not fair.
anyway… i dont know if i can ever get over this. it really isnt that big of a deal im sure. and most guest wont even know that these things went different. But just knowing that i spent night (no joke!!) just planning the “perfect wedding”. and trying to plan everything. I even made some corks with ribbons as place cards and didnt even place them out. We just didnt have time. Omg now im crying… :/ this sucks so bad.. and i am mainly mad at my venue coordinator. I know its not all her fault.. but its just not fair that we were running around the venue trying to put things on the tables because the coordinator didn’t do it. The main issue was the flowers dying… but then again the centerpieces and bouquets turned out great. Just no boutonnière. And we didnt have time to place the gellys inthe vases or the place cards. and the cake color was wrong.
At the end of the night my bridal party and bride and groom were getting all our vases together and placing them on one table to take to a car. that should NOT have been us doing it.But it was… and what makes me mad is that the venue cordinator said “we would not lift a finger” and that her employees would move the stuff for us. BS!!
The reception part went great.It went super fast!!!It felt like a 1hr wedding.lol
So.. man thats an essay.SO what do you think??
