- Wedding: September 2009
When I look back on my wedding, i have very mixed emotions… Don’t get me wrong I love my husband. But as for our wedding, i really hate sayiing this but I really regret it 🙁 and wish we would have just eloped.
For starters, my in laws decided to announce their divorce 3 days before our wedding.. this may sound awful but couldn’t you jaust have waited to tell us after the honeymoon? It’s not like their decision effected the way they acted with each other at the wedding ( they looked very much like a couple). Enter rehearal day.. we get there and our minister takes literally 5 minutes to go over the ceremony and then just leaves saying that she has a prior engagement.. COME ON! she knew about this for 5 months! and this left us without much direction for the day of the ceremony.. at the actual rehearsal dinner my grandfaher collapses due to low blood sugar and needs to be taken to the hospital.
Enter wedding day… photographer doesn’t show up to the salon, we are 5 minutes late to salon and I get yelled at by the owner because of this even though she scheduled a woman to come get her hair done while my whole bridal party is there so we still needed to wait… get back home 2 hours later and no photographer still.
drive to location, photographer shows.. things are going well until mom comes to tell me grandparents cannot make it due to grandfather not feeling well ( this i completley understand but i am devestated, my grandfather is my father figure and as even a little girl wanted him to walk me down the aisle)
ceremony goes well, our vows are perfect, i love my husband
Pictures.. it starts pouring outside
dinner/ reception goes smoothly
come home 2 weeks later get the photos…. there are only 30. Photographer decided to get rid of the ones she didn’t like ( she keeps 30 out of 300)
out of the 30, 22 of them are of the same people dancing
i could have killed her!!
and six months later we still have no video with numerous calls to videographer, still nothing.
i just really wish we could have a do over and part of me feels like i am complaining too much but iy’s hard when you put so much of yourself into one day and we really dont have much to look back on
anyone else have these kind of feelings?
