- Wedding: June 2013
From my friend’s phone! 🙂
I’ll have more pictures up in about a week and full professional up in 6 weeks or so.
I’m excited for the pictures, probably what I am most thankful about the day.
Okay. So my wedding day wasn’t the greatest. I’ve had to deal with my feelings and forgive a lot of people for not coming through for FH or me that day.
Friends showed up late, I couldn’t find my family pretty much all day… for some reason they were MIA. 🙁 I was so upset. Roles were given out months before but the day of we had four people, including FH and I able to set things up. The venue kept changing things on us and even moving around equipment we needed due to confusing communication (possibly from my mother).
I was running around and alone all but for one friend all day. I was literally doing things to set up until 10 minutes before the ceremony.
The really not cool things that hurt:
my family is usually really good about being there for me but I was upset when FH and I had to stop pictures and sign off of deliveries, etc because no one was there
My mom and sisters weren’t around. no one was there to help with makeup or help me into my dress (we had no bridal party)
I almost missed walking down the aisle because no one came to get me!!!! This was unnerving and I barely made it in time. For some reason my family completely ignored me all day, I swear they were busy and confused.
It just really hurt 🙁 I was alone for most of the day except for FH (thank God we had first look photos or else I’d have not seen him the entire day)
The guests (girls who came late and also bailed on being with me that day) brought extra people :/ WTH. I turn around and their siblings are there, too but half-way through. So confusing. These people all left within an hour of the ceremony. I don’t know what to make of this since these people used to be good friends.
FH’s family gave us nothing. Nope. Nada. We’ve always had issues with them but I thought they’d come and be civil and at least give something. Especially after FH spent so much on his brother’s wedding this past year as best man. But no. Thankfully we had enough love and kind gifts from extended family and especially his grandma. But his immediate family gave us nothing, not even a note card. His dad also ignored him and did not talk to his son ONCE the entire wedding or reception. They acted like they had sticks up their butts. SO glad I may never have to see them again.
Now that that is off my chest 😉 I swear writing all that out was cathartic
the GOOD.. 🙂 😉 😉
Hubby and I are together YAYYYY…. 😀
we had amazing pictures
my professors came from school and all supported me so kindly, their presence was a huge blessing in comparison with my in-law’s behaviour
my one friend who did my hair and stuck with me ALL day even when my family was MIA and everything fell apart, she was amazing and i loved her so much
I will post more pictures when I get them 🙂
Thanks for all the support and encouragement. Although my wedding was far from perfect I have a perfect man and am happy to be a wife!
