I’m just going to ramble but I’ve got to get this out. MY WEDDING SUCKED! I never want to look back.
So lets see where do I begin, my cousin passed away 5 days before the wedding after being in a coma for 3 weeks so it was hard to try and do last minute tasks and I was an emaotional wreck a after he passed.
I had a destination wedding we were suppose to have beautiful weather and we did 2 days before my wedding day and 2 days after but on the wedding day it was freezing and fogged in. Not good for a beach wedding.
Then my flowers come and the ivory roses were green and the corsages were orchids instead of roses and I couldn’t get ahold of the florist to see what happened.
Then the limo driver was late and got lost to the ceremony and we were 45 minutes late, my grandmother tripped walking me down the aile, my dad acccidentally pulled out my veil when giving me to my fiance. I forgot my vows, I ordered 40 chairs and they only delivered 20 so half my guests had to stand.
Get to the reception site and they were doing contruction to the restaurant. There was construction equipment everywhere and since we had an evening dinner on the patio it was hard not to see the painters behind the sweathart table painting inside. Then our credit card was decined when we tried to pay and customer service was closed and the bar manager threatened to have us arrested. I guess since we had been making so many large purchases it was flagged.
Now I’m on my honeymoon and I still can’t get a break. My husband lost his wedding band yesterday while taking surf lessons and I have a severe sunburn. I just want to go home and pretend none of this happened. I feel like I spent so much time planning and prepareing and so much money for a day I didn’t enjoy one bit.

((hugs)) to you!!! That is a lot to deal with, and I’m sorry you’ve had to go through it! Maybe when you get home you can have a weekend staycation and a massage to ease some of that tension. Try and think of three things that went RIGHT and everytime you think about something bad, remember the good things. Hopefully that will help put a positive spin on the experience.

awww omg I am so sorry!! This is the kind of stuff that happens in my nightmares, I feel so bad that you actually had this all happen to you! but on the bright side, you are married to the man you love and in the end that is what it was all about so try not to let it get you down. You have an entire life of special moments and memories to make up for it..one day you will laugh…probably not any time soon..but one day.

Wow, I feel for you! That stinks 🙁
I think you two need to treat yourself to a day of relaxation when you get home with a day at the spa with couples massages is in order!
Plus why don’t you plan something sweet related to the wedding, like make a nice dinner, drink wine, and read each other your guests cards.

Hugs! So sorry that all happened. 🙁 I would also be devastated. Maybe one day you can look back and laugh but right now I know that’s the last thing you want to do. I hope the rest of your trip picks up and is awesome!

Ohmygod I am so sorry all of this happened. All I can say is that you have your husband, he has his wife, and you have many many lovely years ahead of you to make up for whatever didn’t go as planned at the wedding.
I hope that in five, oh, who are we kidding, maybe ten years you can laugh at your wedding day.
May those wedding blunders be the worst you have to deal with in your marriage!

Oh dear, how dreadful! First off, I am so sorry that so many things went wrong, its terrible that all of those things had to converge around your special day….the sunburn is just adding insult to injury and the lost wedding band gives it this horrible frosting on the misery cake…is there a spa nearby? I would recommend a soothing seaweed wrap and beachside facial STAT! Followed by romantic champagne dinner, you and your husband order for each other, it’s fun to see what someone else picks for you..and a walk on the beach. Head to the local market, see what kind of wedding rings they’ve got there, it might be neat to have a momento of the honeymoon on his hand for the rest of your lives together…you can’t fix what went wrong, and for that I’m truly sorry, but the fat lady isn’t singing on your honeymoon yet!

Awww, honey!! I am so sorry you got smacked by vendors and mother nature both. You are absolutely entitled to some full-on pampering and TLC. It’s just not fair when things go wrong that you have no control over. We’re here for you, I hope your honeymoon improves from here on out!

Wow I’m sorry!! That is the stuff of nightmares. Hopefully 20 years from now you two will be able to laugh at some of the stuff that went wrong (obviously besides the death). Maybe find a bed and breakfast when you get home and you two can enjoy a nice weekend together!

well, no weddings are perfect. you did have a lot to overcome.
put some green gel on your sunburn and try to enjoy the rest of your honeymoon.
bottom line: you married the love of your life. you are now husband and wife. that is the main objective for the wedding. everything else is fluff.

That sucks. I promise they will all be funny a few anniversaries from now.
