I’m so sorry to hear about all of that! A friend of mine had a lot of disappointments with her wedding as well, and she said something that might help: “I’d rather have a great marriage than a great wedding.” I hope you are able to focus on the good and on your new husband!

I’m sorry your day was so stressful : ( I think you definitely deserve a wonderful anniversary with pictures and everything : ) You can always dress back up and do another photo session soon if you want a few pictures with your hair/make up how you want them. It’s frustrating how unprofessional everyone was : (

So, so, so sorry that your wedding day wasn’t what you had envisioned. I certainly hope that you can find peace with all of this in the future. ~ Blessings to you!

This has got to be one of the worst wedding day disaster stories I’ve ever read. I’m so sad for you! It must be heartbreaking to have put all that work into your special day and then feeling like it all went to waste. The important thing is that you married the man you love, but I know that doesn’t erase the hurt and disappointment you must feel. 🙁

SUPER BIG TIME HUGS!!!! That really stinks and my heart totally goes out to you.
If I were in your shoes this is what I would do. It’s going to be little more work and little bit of money but it might be worth it in the end to re-create some of those moments. I would find a cute little spot that represents the look you wanted for your wedding. Set up a little table for you and hubby like you would have for the wedding. You could even do a couple different tables if you had different looks. You can rent furniture pretty cheap at prop houses too. Get some more of the same flowers and set up your vases. I would get you and hubby dressed up again. Go have your hair and make-up done the way you want by someone you trust or just do it yourself.
Explain what happened to your photog, or hire a different one. Maybe there was one you loved but out of your price range for the wedding. If it were me I would find someone who does stills and DSLR video. Have yourself a wedding photo shoot. If you do have the video you and hubby can re-read your vows, feed each other cupcakes and just be in the moment.
Maybe it isn’t your wedding day but at least you will have a fun wedding memory to come out of it. Most photogs I know would jump at the possibility at a cute little styled shoot, especially if you could swing a weekday evening.
Sorry this is so long and possibly sounds like gibberish, I just got home from shooting back to back weddings this weekend. The bee is my unwind 🙂

I’m also really sorry so many things went wrong…like you said, you should throw a huge one-year anniversary party. It can be laid back, super fun, you can buy a beautiful dress…maybe you could make it a tradition since you didn’t have a great wedding – a big annual party that all your friends look forward to.

Oh my I’m so so sorry this happened on your wedding day!! :(( I can’t even imagine how you must have felt during it all. I def think you should do a big party for your one year anniversary. It wouldn’t be crazy wearing your wedding dress, but I think it’d be a bit weird. Would you consider getting it shortened for the one year party? That way you still have the dress you got married in, just altered a bit so that’s it’s not the exact same?
