I’m sorry, I havent yet, but I still have a year I am sure something will come up. 

My fbil (really his fi) said we shouldn’t have picked our date first because they got engaged before us…. and apparently that WA said mistake to them…. sigh.

My entire first wedding was a stupid mistake, so there’s that.

I was so obsessed with having a certain dress, I bought it knowing that it was too small because the price was great. Well, of course, when I got it, it was no way possible that I would get into that dress. I cried m eyes out because I couldn’t return it and I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to sell it. I was afraid that I’d have to spend even more money because I needed to buy another dress. Thank God that I was able to sell it and I actually found my dream dress again in my correct size.

This is a silly mistake, but we eloped and my husband forgot to pack dress socks so he got married in orange and yellow smartwool hiking socks. Luckily you can’t tell in the pictures.

mimigirl7:  Our wedding was last October and we didn’t realise it was the school hols so our guests ended up paying £600 for two nights in a budget hotel instead of £60 (we live in a touristic city) I was gutted and worried a lot.

A silly mistake was that in all the rush of getting ready for the big day I didn’t pack a proper overnight bag for our hotel. The morning after the wedding, I found 5 pairs of brand new socks with their tags still attached but no trousers and no toothbrush!! I had to borrow my MILs skinny jeans to avoid walking out half naked…

We are having a catholic ceremony and I booked the venue before the church. The venue suggested we get married on a Sunday since it would be cheaper. When I went to talk to the priest he said they could not marry us on a Sunday because of Sunday mass they don’t do weddings. I called what seemed like every church in so cal and they all said the same. I had to move the date to a Saturday instead. Luckily we didn’t loose any money.

My stupidest mistakes…. hmm lets see. I am a very “can do” type of person. So I tried to do most of the invites myself. Everyone said they were beautiful and even the video/photo people said they look professionally made. I love them- but it took FOREVER and people ended up getting them super late. I wish I would have enlisted more help from my BMs and my Fiance.

The one that takes the cake is adding a person to my bridal party that really had no buisness being in it. (see my post in Family or Bridesmaid if interested). But if I had to say that there is anything I truly regret, is allowing myself to be sort of shoved into that situation by this human being. I just wanted to keep the peace but really it just aggrevates me now but too late to change anything.

I totally feel you regarding the Jewish holidays, we had to change our date because of a srew up with the venue and we almost made it during the high holy week lol. Doged that bullet though and picked a month/date with no/few holidays 🙂 November 🙂 Phewph.

i made program fans and printed the wrong first name for my deceased grandfather on every single one. I had never met him as he died before I was born but I do know his true name. I was just in a wdding crafting frenzy and had a friend who has proofread who has no clue who my grandparents are so she was unable to recognize my brain fart. Thankfully, my parent www not upset about it (as far as I know.) I definitely feel like a jerk, though!
