- Wedding: April 2010
I don’t post too often but I am at my wits end. I got married about three months ago and I don’t like thinking about the wedding. Is this normal? I love my husband and am VERY happy to be married to him. But the wedding itself makes me feel awkward. Overall it was a very nice wedding, but so many things went wrong.
Our dj played the wrong first dance, and then he didn’t play ANY guest requests, or our requests, that we had emailed him two weeks before the wedding. Our DOC was terrible. She was disorganized, the timeline did not go smoothly, we were very rushed taking pictures before the wedding. During the ceremony, my husband’s young cousins (8 – 10 years old) stood at the altar with us (well they were behind the minister) to take pictures – we had an outdoor ceremony. Our DOC forgot to put our tablecloth on. My maid of honor signed the wrong place on our marriage license so we are still trying to get a replacement one.
Then I just got some pictures back from our photographer. We love his work and were very impressed, but our pictures are so disappointing. He didn’t get a lot of detail shots: our candy buffet, birdcage guest book sign-in, and there are very few pictures of me with my husband. The ones that he did take, we are always sitting down and there are only a few. It’s not like there wasn’t enough time – during our cocktail hour, we were kind of wandering around, when he should have been taking pictures of us! I’m so disappointed and I know this is terrible but I cried so much when I saw the pictures.
I don’t want to sound ungrateful because it was a lovely wedding and everyone had fun and was very happy, but I just feel so disappointed when I think about these things and I hate it. I know I should change my perspective but I’m having a hard time. Does anyone else feel this way? Am I crazy for being upset about the wedding months after?? I am so disappointed about the pictures especially!
Thanks for listening and letting me get this off my chest.
