- Wedding: May 2013
And it was a beautiful day. The weather was great, I was relaxed (maybe a bit too relaxed, I’ll get to that later) and I got to marry my best friend.
But a couple things are really bugging me.
1) I feel like the pictures were really (and I mean really) rushed and like we won’t have any of the shots I was dying to do (cute/fun ones of just me and my HUSBAND, fun pics with the bridal party, etc…)
I didn’t even get any bridal shots of just me in my dress hanging out while getting ready… why? because I was so relaxed I completely lost track of time and the last half hour was a scramble for my makeup to be finished and to get me in my dress… which brings me to point 2.
2) I was in such a rush, that I wasn’t laced in as well as I could have been. my boobs were kinda popping out and didn’t feel all that secure, and my corset wasn’t tight enough to hide my tummy (like it did in the fittings). Partially my own fault because I accidentally lost another 8 lbs between my last fitting and the wedding but.. ugg. AND I was so rushe,d I never even got to see myself with the full look until AFTER the ceremony when we got to our picture site.
3) I had a tonne of cute pictures I wanted and I really feel like we didn’t take many at all, and I’m fairly disappointed about it, a lot of them were split between the groom/grooms men then bride/bridesmaids but none of us all together (okay I use “none” pretty loosely, but I would say less than ..5)
4) Everything went off without a hitch and for that I’m greatful… but a word to the wise: never ever EVER hire a performer you haven’t seen. Everyone (and I do mean everyone) said that the concept of dinner entertainment was great and helped break the ice, but his show was TERRIBLE … embarassing for us (and him) but everyone was laughing about it and took it lightly.
Overall, we both feel it went really well and were SUPER happy… but I’m just sad about not having as many pics as I wanted to capture the special day. LUCKILY we’ve gotten a few good ones from others but, still a bit sad you know? It’s true.. it really does go by too quickly.
At least my biggest problem was being TOO calm lol.
