    I saw a bride once because to get to the women’s bathroom you had to go through the changing area at the church. Oops. We just said she looked pretty and hustled on so as not to disturb her and her bridesmaids.

    Pretty much all of them. We did photos before the ceremony and our guests who arrived early gathered on a nearby patio and had cocktails. Lucky bastards.

    Yup; we went all around our venue taking pictures before the ceremony (which was awesome! gave us more time to enjoy the cocktail hour) so we saw a bunch of our guests.  We’d pretty much wave and say hi as we passed by!  It was kinda fun, I thought.

    I got ready in my hotel room, and when I was trying to walk to the ceremony EVERYONE just happened to be in the bar that I had to walk THROUGH to get there. Yes, that includes the groom. I was freaking out, and about 10 of the guests saw me, which pissed me off. I his behind a plant til the others could be turned around.

    i think only 2 people saw me.

    my husband’s friend saw me real quick because i had the rings that needed to be given to the best man and my husband had something that he wanted to keep in the bridal room, and so the friend came to make the swap.

    one cousin of mine needed to use the restroom and so my mom brought her into the bridal room because it was closer. when she walked in and saw me in my wedding dress she shut her eyes and turned around and was like, “i don’t want to see the bride before she walks down the aisle!!”

    Yup.  When we were heading out to take bridal party pictures, we ran into several groups of guests in the hotel lobby.  It wasn’t a big deal, I was just feeling nervous and excited about getting the show on the road!

    I plan to have my side of the family pictures done before thee ceremony to save time. So those are family guests, but they will see me. I doubt anybody else will unless they show up insanely early because I have a bridal room we will be going to hide in/freshen up well before the ceremony starts.

    I was pretty hidden before the ceremony. I thought you were kinda supposed to hide?
