Oh my, everything that could have gone wrong went wrong at my first wedding, it’s super long, but kind of funny:
-The night before my ex and I got in an enormous fight that started with him throwing a shoe at my head at the hotel bar. We fought til about 3am when he announced he “didn’t care” and went to sleep. I didn’t sleep at all. That parts not funny.
-I had a fever of 102
-The hairstylist gave us one price before the wedding, then the day of over charged everyone by another $30. No one told me until after, I even gave her a big tip!
-There was an event the day of at the venue, it was supposed to be done before I got there, and they were not supposed to be using the bridal suite. Well, the event ran late and they were in the suite, so I had to wait. I didn’t care, but my Mother-In-Law, sister, and my mom made a huge deal and sat in the doorway watching the people get their stuff out of the room. Kind of mortifying, mainly because the “evil people” taking my room were 10yr old girls.
-Half the guests were late to the ceremony
-My Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law started laughing during our vows, and didn’t stop for the rest of the ceremony.
-My Father-In-Law screamed during formal photos that the photographer was “stupid” and couldn’t do her job right. He was talking in every single photo.The photographer barely took any photo’s after the formals, I suspect she was unhappy with the comment.
-My estranged sister wore a t-shirt, refused to talk to me, got drunk, and talked trash about me the whole time. Klassy.
-I didn’t get to eat my dinner, or cake. I wasn’t allowed to take any food home from the venue, so I went hungry, I had them package up some of my cake but that was all. No one would let me drink, which was ALL I wanted to do. They kept making me put my drinks down, the drinks would always be gone when I went back to them.
-One of my ex’s friends brought the skankiest girl ever. Somehow she ended up in almost every picture from that day. We caught her smoking weed in the hotel room after the wedding. She is now remembered as “the crazy fire dancer”
-One of the groomsmen went around after the toast and drank everyone’s leftover champagne. He then tried to get naked on the dance floor. I stopped him before he dropped his pants. I have the feeling he was responsible for all my missing drinks as well.
-My mom invited a couple she met at the bar the night before. She explained that my friend who couldn’t come because she was pregnant and on bed rest couldn’t come anyways, so there was no reason to let the plate go to waste.
-The limo left me and the bridal party at the venue for an hour and a half after everyone was gone. He had left without us and refused to come turn around. The driver then got in a fight with my Brother-In-Law and tired to slam his leg in the door of the limo.
-When we finally got back to the hotel I found crazy fire dancer and a handful of other people skinny dipping in the hotel pool.
-Beyond that my ex was a serious jerk all day long. When I got back to the hotel room I started crying because of how awful everything had been. His response, and the most comforting thing he said all day was “so we’re not having sex then?”
No, no we are not.
That being said, I am doing EVERYTHING different this time lol
I just look back and laugh now. I feel like it was all because someone, somewhere, was trying to tell me not to go through with it.
