- Wedding: May 2011
Where do I start…. The weekend was horried leading up to the wedding but in a good way. LOL I was sooooo busy trying to entertain our out of town guest. I was physically and emotionally exhausted. I turned into a mini bridezilla because I hosted our reception luncheon at our new house. So that was crazy and the night before we partied all night. Not to mention for the 2 months prior both me and my “Husband” ..hehe I love saying that, were totally beat I did 99% of my wedding myself and he was working on our new house completely renovating it up until 5 minutes before guest arrived.
It was crazy. So we were pretty bad off. I was so stressed I was sick as a dog the night before the wedding.
Ok skip to the morning of the wedding there were still a ton of things to do even after a year and a month of planning.So ofcourse I was running late. But it turned out GREAT. All the stress was worth it and it didn’t rain until 9pm that night, which was my biggest worry.
Marrying my love
Our vows were so sweet people cried

Photographer was AWESOME Courtney – Accedo Photography
Videographer was great- Palm Sky Productions (I love this couple they are really sweet and professional)
The heat ( it was so hot my curls vanished in seconds)
The DOCs my DOCs sucked a** they stayed in the A/C inside the entire time, they had on tanks tops, jeans and hats (WTF), they didn’t put out my kid activity books I worked so hard on. they set out stuff and left the cardboard tags on it. The broke a vase for the alter. They didn’t do their jobs at all… I had to send my Maid/Matron of Honor to get them to tell the DJ to do the bouquet toss, the cake cutting and all the other activites. They were suppose to keep me on track not me having to send people to look for them. Turns out they were hanging out in the A/C the entire time. They were by far the laziest Day of Coordinators I had ever seen. To add insult to injury, they left early our contract didn’t end until 11pm and I specfically asked them to set up my sparkler exit they left before it ar 10pm. (who does that? ) And the didn’t annouce that they were leaving. (Do not book Dream Wedding Designers Miami, FL)
I booked a vintage Rolls Royce Princess (6 passangers) I recieved a vintage Rolls Royce that fits 2 passangers… WTF I emailed the limo company and they never responded now that I am back in the states I called and all the offered me was $50 after we spent nearly $2k with them because the best man also used them for the party bus for the bachelor party. Worst thing is I waited 7 months for this particular limo and they sent the wrong one. And they never gave me the champagne that was promised. So I hav eto go up there on my lunch break and argue with someone. (so sad how South Florida does business) (Do not book Millennium limousine Fort lauderdale, FL)
My cake literally fell apart upon arrival. We ended up cutting only the top piece and the rest was sliced for the guest. The cake lady forgot to but the cardboard in the 2nd tier. WTF. She promptly refunded my money without me having to complain so that was good.
Our uncle the pastor/officiant cell phone rang during our ceremony. I WAS PISSED! I thought it was a bad wedding dream I couldn’t believe it.
It ran for rained for a few minutes around 9pm and we had to move inside for the last hour.
Overall my day was picture perfect and everyone had fun. I just know what went wrong behind the scenes but it was great! Honeymoon was REGAL..I highly 110% recommend Iberostar Grand in Jamaica it was sooooooooo nice I will write a seperate post about it.I will also post pro pics when I get them.
