My first wedding was completely destroyed by a sand storm.  I lost all my flowers, runner rugs, chairs, all the decorations.  Gone. 

Sooo, from experience, it really sucks when your wedding is a disaster.  But…time makes it seem not so bad.  It finally got to the point where we could joke about it.  Your HUSBAND LOVES YOU.  How cool is it that you get to call him your HUSBAND now?!?  And when it comes down to it, that is all that matters about a wedding.  You guys are married now, you’ll live happily ever after. F*** the rest of em, focus on how much you love him. 

I’m sorry about your wedding, especially about the pics though.  Did someone else take pics?  I hope you have some good ones!

I’m so sorry!  Sounds like you got a very rude introduction to your new in-law family.  Their behavior absolutely shocks me.  They are a very selfish bunch.

As far as what they post on Facebook, that’s their issue and you don’t have to care about that.

At least you have your husband.  I know this is poor consolation right now, but the importance of the actual wedding day will diminish.  Make sure you have lots and lots of pictures from the day that make you happy, because those pictures will influence what you remember about the day.  Trust me on this!  If you didn’t have a photographer or didn’t get a lot of good pictures, then go put on your dress again and get some good pictures taken of you and your husband and all the individual items that went into the wedding decor.

I just had this whole thing written about how bizarre all of that is and how I’m so sorry and then my post didn’t work :/ but I guess the best you can to is tell people that it was incredible that you got to marry the love of your life and then move on. It sounds like you guys need some time together, just the two of you- maybe in a few weeks looking back it wont seem as bad

Aww reading all of this broke my heart.  You can’t go back and do it over, and although you’re wedding wasn’t perfect.. I hope that your marriage is!!!   🙂

I’m so sorry things didn’t turn out the way you’d have liked. I’m not sure the best way to answer that question when folks bring it up, but perhaps just focus on a few of the highlights: great ceremony, an amazing new husband, and then talk about how you’re so excited for the honeymoon (or some other future thing). That should change the track of the convo for whoever asked. I’m sorry his family was being like that, but hopefully that part of the memory will fade and what you’ll be able to focus on are the great parts that made you smile.
