My Maid/Matron of Honor lost my husbands wedding band 20 minutes before our ceremony.  It was on her thumb and she was coming down some stairs and it flew off.  We never found it and had to use a GM’s ring during the ceremony.

I didn’t get as upset as I thought I could have…and we all laughed too much during the exchanging of the rings.  I certainly didn’t expect for that to happen.

Luckily we didn’t have too many surprises!

My dad bought me a massage at my venue that I scheduled for that morning, and the owner forgot to schedule me in. Luckily the lady who does the massages lived right across the street so she came right over. I wouldn’t really care too much, but I had a bad migraine and I knew a massage would help a lot!

I think my only other surprise was the pain I had in my feet! My shoes killed me. They were comfy when I tried them on and walked a little bit, but even just during the ceremony I was dying! I brought a back up pair of flats for the reception.

Oh I have one more. I hate being in front of people so we talked to my rabbi about me NOT having to say anything other than “I do.” Normally Jews say a hebrew prayer before exchanging rings, but he said it was ok if I didn’t b/c really in the old days women didn’t say it anyway. But as I was about to give my hubby his ring, my rabbi asked if i’d like to say the blessing. He made me so nervous thinking I’d have to do that and put me on the spot! Of course I said no.

I guess our big surprise was that is was 103 degrees on the beach at 6:30!  It’s hardly EVER that hot, I couldn’t believe it!

A few things got screwed up like no one wanted to take pics before the ceremony b/c it was too hot and we left up a tent for shade that I didn’t like the look of, but all in all it was ok.  And we got married anyway, lol.

And now we have a new phrase “wedding hot.”
