    I wouldn’t change a thing… even the things that went wrong will end up being great stories later.

    Everything was so Wonderful. But the only thing I would of changed was our love letter/ wine box ceremony. The husband & I decided we didn’t want to do the symbolic hammering of the box, but wanted to talk about its significance, well when that time came during the ceremony, we had already put our letters in the box pre-ceremony and just kinda stood there looking at it, haha! So I would of changed that and had us put them in the box during the ceremony 🙂

    The only other thing would of been my in-laws attitudes, they wanted to leave the wedding early and it upset my husband. So other then that I LOVED every moment!

    1.) I would have made sure we ordered napkins. Despite having two coordinators (one DOC, and one at our venue) somehow this one fell through the cracks, and they had to scramble to find napkins for 200 people day-of. They didn’t match our linens AT ALL–but  I didn’t notice the day of! Having too much fun. Smile

    2.) I would have made a more deliberate effort for my husband and I to have some alone time after the ceremony. It was so overwhelming to have so many friends and family rush up to us… we did whisk away for some pics, but I would have preferred to have snuck away and then return for the congratulations.

    Honestly these things are so small in the grand scheme of things… the day FLEW by in one happy blur and I don’t look back on these small issues.

    I would have changed a couple things. The day was great, but my pastor was a little late which in turn freaked my dad out, which in turn left me to escort myself to the church from the parking lot which resulted in me walking down the aisle bustled. Rather frustrating.

    I would have picked a different photographer. I don’t trust mine anymore. He missed a lot of shots that I wanted. Like us standing out front of the church. Ya kinda mad at him. O and the fact he left my reception and never came back.

    I would have splurged and bought the cake stand needed to properly do my cake. It was pretty, but the hall did their interpurtation which did not look anything like my picture.

    Everything was freaking fantastic and I really don’t like thinking about the bad things or what I would have done different because it puts a cloud on the day.

    My photographer was HORRIBLE!  I cried when I got the proofs.  That’s my single major regret.  I would have hired someone else.

    I would have hired a videographer. At the time, it seemed unnecessary to us, but I think we’d love to watch our day again in the future (and share it with our future family). Plus, everything really is such a blur that day. A video would have shown me everything I missed (in a way photos cannot). Oh well. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day nonetheless!

    I honestly, would have changed everything.  I love the man i married, but we did a quick courthouse wedding.  my DH was recoving from surgery at the time, too.  While i understand he may have been in some pain, it was NOT a necesary surgery, it was purley cosmetic, and he CHOSE to do it right before we agreed to get married, so i had little understanding for it.  i would have been more understanding if he seriously needed the surgery.  anyway, we got married in hoodies & jeans.  seriously. I drove there, we got married at the court house, and then he took me to Sonic (yes, Sonic, the drive through) right after we got married.  then we went and looked for wedding rings, and he did nothing about complain about the costs and tell me i had to get the cheapest one (seriously???).  our “wedding day” was a nightmare, and that’s why we’re doing another one!  but honestly…i don’t expect this one to be great either, but…that’s not what matters…

    I would just change my veil. I borrowed a family member’s, and I didn’t realize how 80s it looked until I got the photos back. lol. At least the 80s are making a comeback…kind of. I guess I’m lucky if that’s all I’d fix!
