- Wedding: October 2011
So I’m not complaining about my wedding because it was the most amazing day full of love. But looking back at some of the non-pro photos made me realize I did NOT like my hair or my dress! I always had a bit of regret about my dress, but once I got my crinoline I was happier with it. Looking at the photos, I’m nitpicking about little details I didn’t like.
My hairdresser told me about 2 weeks before the wedding that she also had to do her cousin’s hair for her engagement shots, the same morning of my wedding. I said it was fine since she is also a friend of mine and assured me she would be able to do everything AND still make it to the wedding. Well she ended up being late to start our hair (it was 5:30am and she said their was an accident on the hwy…sure maybe there was an accident but there is hardly ANY traffic that early in the morning so it wouldn’t have taken long to get through it.) She rushed through doing our hair, and although mine looked nice, it wasn’t what I wanted. I should have been more aggressive and told her to redo it, but she was in such a hurry to get home, get herself and kids ready for the wedding and do her cousins hair. She ended up missing the whole ceremony and didn’t show up until 10 minutes into the reception…so more than 2 hours late.
And lastly my photographer. She hasn’t even sent me any “sneak-a-peek” photos, nothing has been blogged, and she said it would take 6-8 weeks to get the photos. Well this Saturday is 8 weeks and I feel that we should have at least seen some photos or heard from her as to the ETA. Last Monday I nicely asked her if there were any ready because we wanted to send some in our Christmas cards. She gave me 2 to choose from. One is of me and my husband and we look nice except a piece of my bangs is hanging in the middle of my face, down my nose so it looks really stupid. The second one is of me and my husband from the side, looking at each other, but it’s my worst angle, and I have a double chin in the photo.
I know there is nothing I can do about it now, but I’m wondering if anyone else had regrets after the wedding…I don’t want to be alone!!!
