I noticed that DH’s shirt was puckering over his tie for all of the pictures…oops lol and my necklace was long and in some of my pictures it was going in my dress depending on how I was standing. Oops again. No biggies though. I guess I was having too much fun to notice!!

On the day I didn’t notice anything was wrong now three weeks later I know the things that went wrong but try not to let it bother me as the day was so wonderful if these things had gone right other more important things might have gone wrong! 

The hook and eye broke on my dress and I had to be safety pinned so the zip would stay up. This was horrible and I tried to breath and not have a melt down!

The garden (where the ceremony was) flowers were supposed to be cut back and they werent and they caught my dress as I walked up the isle. 

My husband forgot our music player to play the signing the registrar song (signed, sealed, delivered by stevie wonder) 

The harpist was supposed to be moved to another area for the cocktails and canapes and she wasn’t so we paid for an hour of music we never got she stood around drinking champagne and eating canapes instead. 

I wish i’d worn flats as I didn’t wear my shoes at all and it made my dress too long. 

My dad, the moron who is on medication that reacts to alcohol drank at the wedding and was so ill he had to lie down and missed basically the whole reception. I don’t have a single photo of me with my mum and dad together. 

Two guests never showed and I still don’t know why!

Four guests turned up during the ceremony which wouldn’t be too bad except we only had 22 guests in total! 

My dog kept sittng on my train and covered it with grass stains, it made for some very cute pictures though so i’m not mad about it! 

I decided to do our couples photos at the end of the evening when everyone had left and I wish I hadn’t! I’d basically melted, my hair was a mess and my makeup needed fixing but at the time I couldn’t have cared less! Now I wish i’d touched it all up as I’m worried about the pictures but I didn’t care then I was too happy! 

My mum almost missed the ceremony! I had to stop the registrar and call for my mother because she was running to do an errand. It made everyone laugh and it was such a comic moment me saying “hang on we’ve got to stop (DH face was a picture he was already nervous and he thought I was going to call it off) my mother isn’t here… MOTHER!” then her head popping round a corner going “yes?!” then she told us to hang on a minute while she finished what she was doing then came to join us. This set me off in to giggles which lasted most of the service. Everyone found it funny and its been mentioned several times since. 

On a plus side it had been forcast light rain and clouds for our outside ceremony and it turned out to be an amazing bright sunshine day. Literally the most perfect weather possible.

Most things went pretty smoothly, but here are the highlights for the blooper reel:

– Our car to get to the church went into antitheft mode and wouldn’t start. We were already 20 minutes late and we were stuck in the pouring down rain with no mode of transit to the church. Luckily, it started after 5-10 minutes.

– The groom wouldn’t eat because he was so nervous. The minister thought he was going to pass out before the ceremony. He didn’t want me to know he wasn’t feeling well, so he tried to hide it from me, but there were several occassions where he’d “go on a walk” with his brother, who was getting him fresh air and giving him anti-nausea meds throughout the reception.

– We had 3 uninvited guests show up. One invited guest had a +1 and told us that he planned to break up with his girlfriend in the 2 month window before our wedding so he didn’t need a date. They didn’t. She attended the wedding. The other 2 were my univited cousin’s kids who came with my uncle. We had an adult only wedding and he knew that but he wanted to take his grandkids on a trip to Chicago, so they just showed up.

– The flowers in my maid of honor’s bouquet shriveled up overnight (we made our own). Luckily, she’s creative and was able to whip together a new one in the hour before the ceremony.

– My brother in law drove my parents 30 minutes in the wrong direction after the ceremony, so my whole family missed the cocktail hour. We had planned to do family photos in that hour but the rain was so heavy we nixed all outdoor ones. Good thing too since they wouldn’t have arrived in time!

Things that went wrong,

1. the diamond bracelet I was going to wear disapeared while I was getting dressed. Yay for jewelry insurance

2. The dj played november rain with the lyrics instead of the instrumental for the processional…arrg

3. my dress loosened a bit throughout the night leading me to step on the crinoline underneath and tear it. Yay for my sister, my Maid/Matron of Honor who removed it near the end of the wedding so I could dance..lol

4. Best men forgot to get the rings from the photographer after they were photographed. again my sister saved the day, giving me her and my bil rings…lol

things that mattered none of the above, I married my husband…everything else is just details… 

it would’ve been nice to have had those rings though….lol
