- Wedding: August 2012
1st off I am a MRS!!!!! YAY yeah boy. Ok we are going to get down to the nitty gritty of this wedding stuff. Ladies whatever can go wrong will go wrong. So when someone says they had a perfect day the people around you just shielded you from the bad things that were happening all around you. Im about to get really real put ya seatbelts on get a glass of your favorite wine and enjoy.
2 weeks out we lost 1 Groomsmen and 1Bridesmaid or Best Man on his side and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man on my side. which meant we had to scramble. My eldest son was now the Bridesmaid or Best Man and my middle son the Groomsmen and my youngest was still ringbearer. OH yeah what a way to get down to the wire. Ok breathe. We got this covered
5 days before the wedding my photog fell over her cat and broke her toe WTH satan get behind thee we say this joyous occasion will happen. SO we go onto CRAIGSLIST oh no not CRAIGSLISTS and find a professional photog running a special for $350 this can not be true oh heck naw. I contact her and she said I have nothing planned but a Birthday party shoot I will be ready to roll. OH NO TO GOOD TO BE TRUE. right. WRONG!!!! the BEST thing that ever happened to use.
The day befor the wedding my sons shoes mysteriously dont fit. SO we have to go shopping.
The day of my sister calls me to tell me her throat is so sore and she has been diagnosed with strep throat and can’t attend the wedding she is contagious for 24 hour. Yeah ok.
So thats when I have my nervous breakdown my family had been acting flaky or jealous over the course so I wasnt expecting them but they ddint disappoint because they didnt show.
1 and 1/2 hours proir to the wedding I have a nervous breakdown. So bad I couldnt breathe or talk.
We get into the car and my strap on my shoe breaks hmmm a sign i should not have worn them. We get to the site 10 mins late. The coordinator offers me a glass of water and realizes I am shaking so uncontrollably she didnt want to give me the water for fear of spilling it on my dress. I then go and my Maid/Matron of Honor is now crying because a guest has seen me and told me how beautiful I look and starts crying and so do I uht oh. My party starts walking. The assistant coordinator tells me to go now I knew Darling Husband had prepared a song for me to sing I didnt hear it I still heard the party music. I began to walk and my legs were like jello and I start breathing so hard everyone thought I was going down. It was so bad they had to help me down the steps because my knees locked. I get to the aisle pastor asked me if I was ok cus it was so bad. Darling Husband takes my hand and starts telling me to breathe.
I was shaking like a leaf and could not concentrate because all I could think of is why did I wear these damn shoes my feet are killing me. I missed a whole line of vowels because of this. Then pastor tells my Darling Husband he can kiss the bride Darling Husband says what were you drinking LOL. I neglected to say I drank a whole bottle of red wine that may have caused some of the events LOL. I say to him you can taste it he says yeah. Any who pastor presents us as Husband and Wife and I go to turn and almost fall on my face because my Maid/Matron of Honor negelected to adjust my train and my Bridesmaid or Best Man thinks its hilarious. So now my shoes are twisted under my dress and that damn metal piece breaks again. So more help up the steps.
So we take some awesome pics around the venue and the photog loved us because she felt we were so comfy and relaxed in each other. After that we went to the north shore. What happens next I want everyone to breathe. We took pics over by the river with my dress just skimming the water dirt and mud. We took pics in the sprinklers Yes I got my dress wet. To top it off we got into water rocks and little girls and people were like no you are getting your dress wet. The shoots were so much fun.
When it was all said and done we had so much fun and love around us that the day did feel perfect but it was far from perfect. I hope this will help a bride out there stressing all doesnt have to be perfect. It just has to be about you and your love one. At the end of the day we only had about 20 people at our wedding and i was happy. Because it was simple
