- Wedding: October 2018
Good morning fellow bees! I got married 2 days ago and I still can’t believe it, I’m so happy! Our wedding was amazing, everything went so well thanks to family and friends stepping up and helping out.
The only thing that went wrong was my flowers. I picked them up Friday on our way out of town (wedding was 1.5 hrs away), I drove separate from my husband and bridal party due to all clothing, decorations, etc not being able to fit in one vehicle. I was so excited to see the flowers but when I actually did see them I almost cried. I felt horrible that I didn’t love them. At all. I wanted a large hand tied bouquet with ivory garden roses and no greenery, the florist told me it would be about 12 inches wide with the bridesmaids bouquets being smaller light pink garden roses which isn’t at all what I got. Since nobody was there with me to pick them up I didn’t know if I was overreacting or just overly emotional from all the stress/excitement. I ended up asking them to add more roses, which weren’t the same kind of roses since garden roses are special order only. Even after they added the additional roses it was still so small, about 6 inches wide at best. The florist promised me that they would bloom and double in size, they never did, i ended up adding babysbreath (sp?) the morning of my wedding. The pink bridesmaid bouquets were brown the next day also. Even though it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to I tried to make the best of it and not let it ruin my day. AND…I forgot the favors I worked my butt off on lol, nobody noticed tho haha!
The food was amazing, the cake was beautiful and way bigger than I was expecting lol, the reception room was gorgeous (although I wish I would have done flower center pieces), the weather was sunny and awesome (rained in the evening I guess but I didn’t know), my moh gave the best speech ever, there’s so many things that were awesome!!
Our ceremony music was awesome! Parents and Pastor came in to “Imagine” (VSQ version), bridal party came in to “Hallelujah” (VSQ version), and I walked in to Adele “Make You Feel My Love”…everyone cried!!! My son walked me in and my stepdad gave me away on behalf of my brother who couldn’t be there. It was beautiful! Everyone LOVED my dress, even strangers kept stopping us and telling me loved the blue 🙂
Funny story about our pre-ceremony pics session lol…my Maid/Matron of Honor is…not girly ( if you get what I’m saying lol) and several people thought our pics were for a gay/lesbian wedding lol! I didn’t want her to be uncomfortable wearing a dress and it would so not be her to wear one so I told her she could wear whatever she wanted. We got stopped more than once to pose with flamboyant strangers that gushed about how happy they were for us lol, we didn’t care tho and thought it was pretty awesome haha!
My photographer is super quick! She had a sneak peak up 2 hours after they left the reception!!! Here are a few of my favs, hope I’m doing this right lol, I’m posting from my iPad for the first time…and they’re out of order lol, and possibly huge!!!
