Stupid wedding mistakes. Hi Bee’s I made a really stupid wedding mistake. When we were deciding on the date I wanted September. I felt like it was out of the way for holiday and still nice weather. My FI’s brother, because of work said we could not have it in September, and asked that we do it in late April. I was so frustrated with the situations that I really just want to pick a date. So we did. Then we met with the Rabbi. The Rabbi said but thats the first day of passover no one will Marry you then. For non Jews that is worse then getting married on easter or Christmas. The date moves every year for March to May. So we had to pick a new date and move everything. We had almost finished the planning. We really only lost our day of planner and to ask me that wasn’t much lost. I was on the edge with her because she was more controlling that I think even a planner should be. What it has done is left me overwhelmed, with a few sleepless night and tears. Anyone else make a stupid mistake? I would like to think I’m not the only one stressed and not thinking.

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.

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.

Thank you for the kind words. I would have thought twice about the calander is I had to do it again. Keeping the peace is what I have been doing too. I have my sister and nephew in the wedding even thought I don’t talk to her. I also an inviting family that I don’t talk to just to keep the peace.

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!
