- Wedding: May 2012
My wedding is over and I think the wedding was close to perfect, but there were a couple of flaws that I cannot get out of my head. One my preacher didn’t go by the ‘book’. I was a little disappointed in our vows (or lack of) but some people thought it was nice and cute. Secondly, my Fiance (now hubby) dropped the ring. I thought it was funny but only because he is always so serious. He didn’t think it was funny. It was my fault though. I felt bad. He tried to put it on and I moved my finger because I was trying to tell him he had it upside down. He said we could’ve switched it after the wedding. I apologized for moving and laughing. Third my sand ceremony was horrible.
I found out 15 minutes before the wedding was supposed to start that my coordinator didn’t have the sand. I thought I gave it to her months ago but I didn’t. I left it at home along with the flower girls flowers and serving set. So she was going to go and buy some but it would’ve meant my ceremony would have been about an hour late. I didn’t want that! I refused to start late. My bridesmaids ended up decorating a serving set from the venue minutes before the wedding. My coordinator had extra flowers for the flower girls. They were pink flowers instead of the black and white I had. Then the director had her staff to get me some sand from the golf course. Well we started about 15 minutes late.
Everything worked out except the sand. Our mothers carried the sand down the aisle in a container, but since it wasn’t black and white to match our colors, it looked tacky. Then once we started pouring the sand, it didn’t come out of the container. It was wet and stuck together. We got a little out but I just gave up. I was so sad and disappointed.
Our guests didn’t see anything wrong with the small issues but they were grand to me. After planning for 9 months, I wanted everything to be perfect. Everyone said they had a great time. They said the wedding was classy and beautiful, but I keep playing those things in my head. Oh well I guess at this point, it doesn’t matter. I am just so happy to be married and happy the planning is over. I actually think I can be a coordinator now. LOL as long as I am not a bride!
