The worst part of our wedding – When it ENDED!!! We had SO MUCH FUN! And so did our guests. It was "us" is was BEAUTIFUL and OMG did we all have a great time… enough so that the reception just wasn’t enough, we had an after party that went on for 4 more hours!

I wish I would have stayed out on the dancefloor!! I saw people sitting at their tables and felt obligated to go talk to them and I missed the big dance off that happened! I wish I had rememered it was my day and to enjoy my wedding with my HUSBAND, not the party poopers sitting on the sidelines.

Surprisingly, I am finding this thread really really helpful, as someone getting married in just a few short weeks. Rather than stressing me out, it’s like a big fat reality check that is helping me to keep in mind that my expectations might not be met in certain areas and there’s not much to be done about it anymore! Thanks bees!!!
And Kate, yes, I think a 40th b-day/vow renewal is an awesome idea!

Awww, Salex, that is sooo awful, but I laughed – sorry. I laughed so hard that it woke finace up from his nap, startled! I just feel like that is something that would happen to us.
Now I’m freaked out!!! These posts are scary.
I think I’ll link my planner + photog + wedding venue manager to this page!

My main thing I’d do differently is I’d have had a receiving line or else I would have gone from table-to-table greeting guests. The whole night went by so fast and there were some relatives that we didn’t even say hello to. After guests traveling and giving us nice wedding gifts, it sucked that we ran out of time to make every guest feel that they are special to us.

Ours was the drama between his (divorced) parents. They always find something to raise an issue about!

When my photographer and videographer weren’t given a simple meal. The country club had extra vegetarian dish, and offered that to our vendors. They needed something more substantial, like chicken to fuel them, and apparently they weren’t treated very well either. I felt terrible.

Ahh, I’m actually so relieved to have found this post. I just got married two weeks ago and while everyone told me the wedding was so beautiful and they had a blast, I still have feelings of anxiety about it because, looking back, I realize that I didn’t relax enough to enjoy everything….I was so worried about others having fun that I was so tense! I only ate half of my delicious dinner and a few bites of my amazing cake that my aunt had labored over. I haven’t seen the pictures yet, but I’m also anxious about seeing them and how they came out, if I looked okay, if she got some artistic shots, etc. It makes me feel better that others have different feelings about their weddings and would do certain things over if they could…
I wish I had found this post before the wedding!!!

- Wedding: March 2021 - The Venetian
my biggest regret is not getting a card box! my dad insisted that a card box wasnt safe and promised to have a friend take care of cards. he took care of the cards all right, but only before the ceremony. after the ceremony, friends were handing ME cards left and right during the reception. there was even a stack left at our sweetheart table. some people held onto their cards because they didnt trust this strange man offering to take their cards.

Ah, that was so hard to read. I am going to get everything in writing! Thanks for the help ladies.

It was 100+ degrees. In OREGON for crying out loud! Not something I could change so, I guess it was just meant to be. We didn’t get a super great photo of just us – the bride and groom. That bummed me out, but everything else was grand!

After reading all the post I don’t know if I should be happy for all the useful info or I should be freaking out!! Either way thanks for the wisdom. I had a terrible experience in my quincianera that I feel that I could handle anything that comes my way but now I’m concerned about the photographer.
