- Wedding: October 2013
The wedding has come and gone, and while my official recap is still pending until I get the pictures from the photographer, I wanted to share some shit that didn’t matter. Ready? Here goes:
1. We didn’t do our sand ceremony.
I put it in the program. I set it up. I forgot to put it in the officiant’s copy of the ceremony. So we didn’t do it. Oh well. We faked it for some pictures afterward!
2. We didn’t do toasts at the reception.
My sister (MOH) came up to me and asked if we were doing them, but the party was in full swing, I was on my second vodka soda (which really added up to about 4 because our bartender was AWESOME!) and I just didn’t want to stop to listen to some sappy shit. So my sister told me what she was going to say and our Best Man gave Darling Husband (squeee!!!) his speech on a piece of paper for us to read later. No one seemed to miss it!
3. We didn’t have a limo or other private mode of transportation from the reception to the hotel.
We climbed on board the shuttle with some of our wedding party. We were all pretty tanked, there was a 5th of Fireball floating around, we had a blast. Totally didn’t miss the limo at all.
4. We didn’t serve a plated meal.
My guests got out of their seats, walked up to the buffet, and walked back to their tables. And not one person complained or seemed to be put out by it. All night long, people were telling me how delicious the food was.
5. We didn’t have our wedding on a Saturday.
All along, I’ve been hearing that Sunday is an awful day for a wedding, that people will leave early, that no one will party, blah blah blah. Well, I have about 160 people who beg to differ. Everyone came. Everyone stayed. Most people stayed until they turned the lights on to get us out of the hall. No one cared that it was Sunday.
So, Bees, what shit did you (or didn’t you do) at your wedding that didn’t matter?
