- Wedding: March 2012
The good: The weather was PERFECT!! I got a little chilly standing outside during the ceremony, but it was beautiful. We had insane rain showers in the days leading up to the wedding, so we were so glad it cleared up. Our photographers were so, so awesome (Bent Studio in Charleston, SC). Dinner was great – can’t go wrong with Sticky Fingers though. 🙂 Cheesecakes were fabulous and the DJ was fun. Our parents looked great! No one caused any family drama.
THe bad: 2 of my bridesmaids sucked. They showed up for pictures drunk…one so much she had to lean on people to stand straight. Another tried to start a fight with one of the groomsmen during dinner. Some of DH’s family thought they’d go behind the bar before the wedding even started and help themselves to whatever they could find (including cutting limes for shots). Same folks made the photographer take group shots with their personal cameras. The DJs didn’t have our ceremony music and had to download it really fast.
The ugly: Darling Husband got drunker than I’d ever seen him and we got into a fight at the reception. It didn’t help that his overbearing mother tried to step in – she always makes things worse.
All in all, it was a beautiful day. We got some lovely pictures and had a lot of fun despite the hiccups. That being said, I’m so glad it’s over. Never again will I plan another wedding. I’m encouraging whatever kids we have to elope!
