I’ve got one more….my hubby’s cousin was playing a beautiful instrumental on his guitar during our candlelighting ceremony. Our ringbearer must have enjoyed it because he rocked himself to sleep on the altar during it. 🙂 Cute pics!

Oh another one…somehow no one got the top layer of our cake for us to freeze, and we called the venue after and they didn’t know what happened to it, so we won’t be able to partake in that 1 year anniversary tradition 🙁

Overall, everything went perfectly at my wedding. The only things that happened that were frustrating would be the 5 no-shows at the wedding, and the leaves and twigs that got stuck to the bottom of my dress during photos.

@ChemistryBride: call the bakery where your cake was made. they usually have it on file and can recreate a smaller version for your one year. that’s what my girlfriend did. when they were on their honeymoon, their refridge literally DIED and everything in it was trash (a whole 10 days no fridge) so they called their baker and she came to the rescue for their anniversary!
my wedding? no bouquet, no music, no family, my kids weren’t there (one decided she was too tired and slept) the other was on vacation. we locked ourselves out of the car and had to borrow a wire coat hanger from a friend to unlock the car.
all this for a 10 minute ceremony with just us and a notary. awesome.

Two big things – our recessional didn’t play, so we walked back down the aisle silently. Oh well. 🙂
Second, instead of reading “I Carry You in my Heart,” DH’s brother in law read the lyrics to “That’s Amore”… you know, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie…” NOT HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!! Still not happy. Still pissed. That fucker is gonna get it some day!!!!! (He totally did it just to mess with us. He told us that.)

The only thing that really went wrong on our day was that our first dance song wasn’t playing correctly when we were dancing. The first half of the song was just music with no words because the iPod wasn’t plugged in all the way.
Even when it was happening, I just laughed and told DH that if that was the only thing that went wrong today, then I was ok with that! lol

That reminds me! I accidentally downloaded a karaoke version of our recessional song. I didn’teven notthought there were no words though because I was so happy!

@Hobokenbride2012: Oh my gosh! That is crazy! I live in Hoboken and know exactly what fire you’re talking about – the one that closed down Washington Street for weeks. That was YOUR building the night before your WEDDING!?!?!?!? Woah. That’s insane.

Only two things went wrong for me:
1. The caterer ran out of macaroni and cheese. I do not think this was the caterer’s fault, I just think my guests REALLY love them some mac n cheese and people took heaping helpings. It ran out just as the last table was going through the buffet line. Ah well.
2. I fell down! My dress was hemmed perfectly for my ceremony heels, but just a tad long when I changed into my reception chuck taylors. Doing the electric slide, I stepped backwards on a pearl and my feet went out from under me. It was basically like falling onto a cloud, though, with all the layers of my dress and crinoline, so it didn’t hurt. I just laughed, laid there for a second, threw my hands up over my head, and got back up to finish the electric slide. Most of the guests didn’t notice, just the ones immediately around me (we had a very animated, energetic reception with lots going on), and the ones who did notice actually told me it was kind of cute. Whew!
Oh, actually, one more: when I got to the church to get dressed, I was informed that the groomsmen were all down the hall drinking beer in the church. I panicked, because it seemed disrespectful, and mostly because I didn’t want the church staff to find Bud light cans in the trash the next day (oh-so-NOT-classy), so I sent my mom in to shut them down. They took the beer out of the church, and then the girls and I promptly cracked open our bottle of champagne. Double standard? Nah, I say we were being classy with our champagne and I knew we would clean up all evidence, which the boys would NOT be responsible enough to do. Looking back, that’s also kinda funny to me now.

1- (Probably the biggest) My DH disappeared for the start of our first dance!! He hadn’t realised it was happening and had wandered off to the bar when the band started playing it! I was stood on the dance floor while people rushed off to find him. The Bridesmaid or Best Man found him in the bar and said “come on, the first dance is starting”, DH said “yeah, I’ll be there in a mo and we can do it”, Bridesmaid or Best Man was like “no, it’s happening RIGHT NOW and you’re not there!” Luckily it was only like a minute or so, it felt longer at the time! He was really apologetic, but I was so happy I didn’t really care and we laugh about it now.
2- The tables for the meal were shorter than the venue had told me they were, so we ended up with people sat on the ends of tables, which REALLY messed up the seating plan. But nobody really minded and everybody got on really well anyway so that was fine.
3- One of our guests read his invite wrong and turned up to the whole event, rather than just the reception. He then came up to the top table during the meal and said “Errr….there’s nowhere for me to sit”! Luckily the Bridesmaid or Best Man saved the day, by squeezing in an extra chair for him on one of the tables and there was SO much food that there was plenty for one extra.

@hardtoconcentrate: Actually that wasn’t it. Mine was the St. Patty’s fire on Clinton St. Washington street was about a month before.

Only things I can think of at the moment are that our commissioner didn’t read our ceremony writing properly, read really fast and got tongue tied a few times… he also broke his leg earlier so was wearing a cast. But really it doesn’t matter, we still said our vows and he still pronouced us husband and wife and thats all I care about in the end. We only had the choice between two comissioners and didn’t want the other lady so we had to go with it, Not sure how our ceremony pics are going to turn out though. I told my hubby that we will have to do a vow renewel sometime to make up for it haha 🙂

I have another one… My pendant necklace would not stay in the right place (I wore the wrong chain) so in some pics it is way way off center… I think I may have to photoshop out of my whole necklace in a lot of my pictures as it looks stupid. sigh

When went to light the unity candle hubby tried to pull his candle out of its candle holder, it wouldn’t come out so he picked up the whole thing and of course it fell out and smashed on the table. I actually laughed then too. opps. 😉
