I have some (see my post http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/anyone-have-a-wedding-that-was-slightly-disastrous)! I’ll be spending my whole weekend literally photoshopping out my cool white arm band out of about 1500 of our pictures (see my post to see what I’m talking about). I feel like I ruined all our wedding photos. Not to mention that it was roasting in our reception hall and I’m a sweaty mess in most of the shots. Like literally, shiny with my hair stuck to my damp forehead. I did a final count late last night: 67% of the guests that RSVP’d that they would come actually showed up. I started to think about how much time and money I wasted a few days ago as I made the first payment of many to the credit card we used to charge most of the wedding to.

But I can’t change any of it. And I’m determined not to remember my wedding day as 1) a picture ruiner, 2) sweaty, and 3) ungrateful. I just can’t do that. To help, I even am trying to have a sense of humor about it some of the things that went wrong. Like my sweatiness is just my wedding glow–don’t knock it! 😉

So yesterday I picked out 3 things I really did like about my wedding: our cake cutting/smashing into each other’s faces was hilarious, our DJ rocked, and the food was amazing. I don’t want to cast a shadow on the good things that happened that day. I’ve heard everyone regrets things, maybe some more than others, but it does get easier to forget the things that went wrong as time goes by.

I think the more you try to hold on to the good things, then the bad things won’t be remembered that much soon. It helps to know you aren’t alone and even if you were superwoman, you can’t prevent how the cards fell at the end of the day. Even though your hair was out of place or the lighting wasn’t right, I bet you still looked like a beautiful bride!

Hello Date Twins!

I think I’m still recovering from the whirlwind of everything. We justgot back from our honeymoon two days ago and I’m just getting over the jetlag!

Yeah, I think everyone feels a bit of the blues because there’s so much ramp up to the wedding and then suddenly it’s over, and then there’s the thought of “I wish I did this..”. There were two things I wish I had done 1) RELAX! and 2) Ended our first dance (which was choreographed and amazing) the perfect way.

In the end, I love, love LOVED our wedding. I thought it was honestly one of the best we’d been to and we had SO much fun. Latching on to the pp, I think allowing the good things to bubble up to the surface will make it better. I look at some of those photos and think “OMG, that so amazing.” And I remember laughing my butt off at the funnier moments. That’s what I think I, and everyone else, will truly remember.

There will be good photos where you will look amazing. And if it’s really bugging you that much that you didn’t get XYZ photo, you can consider getting your make up done again and asking your photographer if he could take some similar shots, post-wedding. I’m sure with the help of some gracious friends you could recreate a lot of the scenes again and get some fabulous ones without the stress of rain or other wedding factors.
