- Wedding: September 2012
You follow the guides. You keep track of every detail. You confirm everything… Still it seems the wedding day has a snafu or two… and some are full on car crashes. I’m sure there are a few that go off perfectly. Mine did not! 🙂
In the end, I still married the man of my dreams and that’s all that matters… but it’s still frustrating to see things that I worked so hard to plan fall apart. So here’s my list:
Had to fire my PA a couple of days before the wedding. She showed up at the groom’s dinner and caused drama. Boo. You’re fired. Again.
My day started off late. My alarm clock didn’t go off! I was 30 minutes behind schedule from the get go. Not a good feeling.
MoH who was supposed to help me with the set up of my photo booth bailed on me. Had to call in reinforcements. Boo. You’re fired too.
Forgot my fiance’s gift at home. Had to send someone home to get it out of my UNDERWEAR drawer!
The sand for our sand ceremony didn’t fit in the jar. I measured it twice before the day of! WTH.
Reception was beautiful – but decorator forgot the centerpieces.
My cake was beautiful (or so I hear) for about 10 minutes. Bakery didn’t put dowels in it to hold it up.. so it was the leaning tower from the get go. Our photographer got a picture before it had to be taken apart – but I never saw my cake in one piece. We also didn’t get to do eating the cake photos – they cut the cake too soon. I didn’t even eat a piece of my own cake that I spent hours designing. I fire myself.
No one could hear the dinner music I painstakingly picked out. Poor sound system. Boo.
The best man (grooms brother) made very embarrassing sexual remarks about my husband. Most people thought it was funny. We thought it was tacky. I just wanted some class. Best man – also fired.
DJ didn’t play most of my requested music.. We would have had more people dancing if he had since we had a lot of older people and my list was classic dance songs. Old people won’t dance to “I’m Sexy and I Know It”. Fired.
Bar didn’t shut down the open bar when they were supposed to. Cost us an additional $500 we weren’t counting on. Double fired.
People who were supposed to do clean up were either too drunk or left early. One other couple and the groom and I picked up at the end of the night and were the last ones to leave. Fired. Fired. Fired. I’m hiring all new friends.
Did it wreck my day? Heck no. The day was fun and enjoyable in spite of those things. And I still have my wonderful husband’s shoulder to beat my head against in frustration.
How about you? Any disasters in your wedding day? Or someone else’s you know?
