I’m sure you think it was worse than it was.  It’s definitely not out of the ordinary to imbibe at your wedding either!  You said you had a great time… and that’s all that really matters, right?

@BridetoBe101610: My hair was falling down a little and I never noticed and in some pictures it really bothers me! In addition I never reapplied make up (blush, lipstick) and so in some pictures I just look tired and that bothers me too!

@BridetoBe101610: I regret not filling the photographer paperwork out so she knew exactly what shots to get (besides the obvious). I had to tell her off the top of my head so I missed some important (what was important/special to me) photos.

I regret not making sure my bustle was tight enough, and I regret making some really funny faces during the cake cutting!

I was worried about this and will be waiting for later in the reception to start the drinking.

I regret not having my asthma inhaler in my clutch. I hadn’t had an attack in a long time, so I ditched it. But, halfway through the reception, with the dancing, drinking, overwhelming emotion, I got an attack. My poor husband left the reception to go to our hotel room (next street over) and get it – but couldn’t find it. I spent the last 30 minutes of my reception trying to act like I was totally fine, even though all I wanted to do was rip my gown off and sit in an allbuterol fog!

I want to say something re: the photo captures.  My paternal grandparents are my favorite relatives in the world.  I, of course, always knew them as “grandma and grandpa” and only had memories of them being, well, grandparents. 

When my grandfather passed away in 2009, I was told to rifle through their old photos and take whatever I liked.  I went through my grandma’s albums and found all of the black and whites from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s when they were young.  Some of my favorite ones are of them being, well, human!  Rather than the staged pictures, I took the ones where grandma looks a little buzzed on New Years of ’31.  I took the ones that were candid and gave me a real snapshop of their life and relationship – the ugly laugh ones, the weird facial expression ones, everything.

I think we chastise ourselves too much and if no one else said you were out of control, you probably weren’t.  I wouldn’t worry about it.

I wouldn’t call it a regret exactly, but my hair is really thick and heavy and I made the mistake of trimming my bangs only a week before the wedding. So they were a bit short, and due to weight fell in my eyes a lot. It doesn’t look bad, but I wish they were more out of my face in several shots.

I know it’s weird, but I regret not reminding my DH (and myself) to look engaged and happy during the ceremony. We both were concentrating really hard so in most pictures, it looks like a funeral, and when we were laughing, the photographer seemed to catch at least one of us with half-eyes or with a wonky look, so those are unusable. Because of this, our entire ceremony takes up 1 page in our wedding album.
