Major wedding disasters
I made the biggest mistake and pretty much ruined my wedding day. We were supposed to spend the night of our wedding at our venue, to find out that the venue mistakenly booked us the wrong room which wouldnt fit my bridesmaid. So we had to book a hotel next door to the venue the night before and spend the night there.
I screwed up so bad.
Our wedding was brunch and started at 10am. So the morning of the wedding, we were running late. The makeup and hair was supposed to get to our other (origionally planned) location, which was the venue at 7. What I should have done is had them come to the room we were in next door to the venue!!! But I am so stupid!!!! I hauled as much stuff as I could, got to the other venue with my daughter and bridesmaid and forgot the keys to the room!!!! so I sptinted back to the other hotel, left them outside waiting to get in the room and ran back covered in sweat.
How. Am. I .so.stupid.
So my idiotic decision ruined everything. We spent a fortune on the wedding. We hired the best of the best makeup, hair, and photog. Everything was suppised to be perfect.
But we only had 1.5 hours to get everyones hair, makeup, and clothes on because the ceremony started at 10. We should have woken up earlier.
So I made the stupidest last minute decision to wear my hair up instead of down. I am confident with my hair down. The hair lady said with the illusion back it would be so pretty with an updo.. That is who I am. I was so unconfident the whole day because I felt exposed. Stupid.
Oh and I left the checkbook at the previous hotel so she was waiting to be paid until I could track someone to go grab it to oay her.
And THEN, oh yes, we get kicked out of the room that we had at our venue because the venue said they didnt know we would be back and booked it. This is 30 minutes before the wedding and we have to get all the stuff out.
I caused so much stress on everyone. I am the biggest failure. all the money spent was just wasted I feel like. My hair was halfway done in an updo and my husbands parents that paid for the wedding were trying to take care of my mistake of switching rooms the whole morning. My fiances mother had a panick attack, because half my stuff was at the venue and half the stuff was at the hotel next door. No one could find my dad with dementias suit 30 minutes before the wedding.
Si when the wedding came our coordinator (throygh the venue) was nonexistent. We didnt know what we were doing. We had to initiate everything ourselves. No one got their food until the end of the wedding.
My husbands family accidentally sent my family in a diffrent room so they couldnt see anything that was going on.
The weather was perfect, my daughter was an amazing flowergirl and everyone seemed to have an amazing time.
But, the stress I put my family through because of my mistake is breaking my heart. My fiances mother didnt even get to shower the morning of the wedding because of me.
Why did I switch rooms? How can I be so incredibly stupid???????
And when we got our oics back, my hair doesnt look like me. Down is my comfort, and I have a huge double chin in every picture. And my hair was only halfway done.
And the night before the wedding me and my husband got terrible sore throats, and ended up getting sick the day after, so no intimacy during our honeymoon! lol!
I mean we spent 20k on this wedding. i feel so conceited. It was a great day because I got to marry the love of my life, but the day was a blur. I am sitting here crying feeling like a screw up.
