Oh no.  I was waiting to hear about your recap because when I last checked in on you you were having a rough prewedding week.  I am so sorry to hear your day was full of stress and drama.  All weddings are but yours seemed to have more than the norm.  If it makes you feel any better, I just got married on June 23rd and I too looked back on my day as bittersweet to say the least. However, once I got back the pro photos I was able to see the beauty of the day.  Once it was all over I could look at the photos and relive my day free of all the stress.  It was like a do-over and I really came to appreciate my wedding day more.  I finally saw all the things that people were complementing me on that day.  You just have to step back from it a little.  I think it will be the same for you.  I promise it will become more sweet and less bitter with time.  I found that posting my recap gave me pride in my wedding and was healing in a sense.  In other words…..post some pics so we can all tell you how awesome you are for pulling it all off!!!

At least it all doesn’t reflect poorly on you.  Your family just looks like a bunch of selfish jerks.

Aww I’m sorry there was so much drama with your wedding! At the end of the day though you are married to your wonderful husband and hopefully the family drama can calm down for a bit now!!

wow! that is a lot of drama to deal with on your wedding day! hopefully, one day you’ll all be able to look back and laugh about it. and maybe once the dust settles and you have more time to reflect on the day and see pictures/video, more happy memories will replace the not so happy ones 🙂

@fresitachulita:  glad you had a great wedding, sorry to hear about family drama, some people are so selfish I guess….you cant avoid things if they go wrong but if they had just tried to make the best of it, ie gotten over the seating arrangement for your Aunt and wrong dance partner it could have just been ignored and forgotten.

Gosh, it sounds like there is some serious mental illness on your husband’s side of the family.

I’m so sorry that your day was tainted with other people’s selfishness, but is there anything that did go right (besides getting to marry your DH)?  Try your best to remember the good parts.  Also, I would tell your sister, his mom, and his ridiculous sobbing aunt exactly how they made you feel on your wedding day.  Why should they get away with assinine behaviour!?  I would let them know how hurtful their actions were and how you now sadly remember a very important day in your life.  Then I’d probably cut ties for a while.  Good luck!

@fresitachulita:  yes they sound very demanding of your FI’s attention.
