So I was walking by my church on the way home today and I suddenly remembered something that had happened on my wedding day that kind of irked me.
We took our photos in the morning, a few hours before our ceremony. During the formal photo session in the church I had to take a break to go to the bathroom. The photographer and everyone had to wait for me to get back. I walked to the bathroom with my mom who was helping me and there was a line. There is one bathroom at our church. The line was because there was some group at the church using the kitchen for some reason. So one lady was in line in front of us and she starts telling me I should go use some bathroom down the hall in the elementary school. She’s like “Why don’t you go use this bathroom. It’s being painted right now but it should be open”. I was just like, “No, we’ll just wait for this one” and I hoped that she would let us go ahead of her, after all I was obviously in my wedding dress and getting married that day. But, that lady went in the bathroom ahead of us and didn’t let us go first. My mom said to me, “Well, she was rude, not even letting you go ahead of her.”
Here’s what I wish I could have said to that lady, “Lady, can’t you see that I’m getting married here? Why would I want to drag my $2000 dress down the hallway and use a bathroom that is being painted? And why can’t you go use that bathroom and let me use this one instead? Don’t you realize I have an expensive photographer waiting for me to get back so we can continue taking our pictures?”.
Anyways, maybe I shouldn’t have felt like I was so entitled on my wedding day, but I just thought that lady was rude. I didn’t let it bother me much on the wedding day. I think it bothered my mom more. But I got upset a little bit today when I remembered that again as I was walking by the church.
Anything like this happen to you on your wedding day? I know it was such a little thing, but it was kind of a funny story so I thought I’d share.

My DH’s bout didn’t last too long. I actually removed a petal in the middle of the ceremony because it was all janky and it was bothering me. Also I was REALLY pissed off when we were taking photos because all the guests were taking photos BEHIND the photographer. I’m paying someone GOOD money to take pictures! Stop making everyone look at a different camera!! We had many photos that were ruined because the kids were looking at mommy and daddy’s camera, not the $5000 DSLR camera in front of them. GRRR!

We had uninvited guests show up to our reception! They were extended family of my husband’s dad, who took the liberty of inviting them himself without asking us. GREAT!
They showed up and spent the reception insulting my mother-in-law (she’s long since divorced from him).

@sapphire – I was so worried people would be taking a ton of photos behind my photog too. I didn’t want their flashes to ruin his lighting. Luckily I think people only took photos when he wasn’t, or else my wedding party members were just good at looking at my photog’s camera only.

@MightySapphire OMG, there are so many photos that were ruined because people were looking at other cameras!!!
The one thing I wish my family and some of my wedding party would have done was wait at least a month to tell me the bad stuff. I might have brushed off the bad stuff if I had learned about it a month later. So instead, I was all worked up about my Mother-In-Law making fun of my uncle during the ceremony. Or that my entire family, thought my Mother-In-Law was walking around and ignoring us like she was “better than us” . Hearing that one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man, didn’t like one of my other Bridesmaid or Best Man and ended up calling her a slut at my wedding, didn’t help either.
That moment of joy and bliss after my wedding, lasted a day until I heard all of this.
I didn’t go on my honeymoon right after and so I had some time to talk about the wedding and such. I kind of wish I could have afforded to go on my Honeymoon right after the wedding.
