We had lots go wrong.  Some still irk me, but some definitely make us laugh:

*My DH is not super romantic.  All I wanted was to hear him repeat traditional vows.  All he wanted was to say “I Do” to vows stated by the priest.  I thought I won.  Reality: priest forgot and said all of our vows and all DH and I had to do was say I do.  I was so busy being confused as to what was happening I missed that sweet loving moment.  Fast foward 5 minutes later to our ring exchange where my DH recites the ring exchange words perfectly.  This born, rasied and Catholic bride?  She’s the one who stumbles on “In the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.” I literally couldn’t remember what to say.  You can see my sister, Brother-In-Law, groom, and priest trying not to laugh at me on the alter.  Maybe the I do was the best mistake ever!

 

*We had wedding crashers.  Legit dressed up trying to drink our booze wedding crashers.

 

*My DH’s coworker and friend has been single as long as we’ve known him and since our budget was tight no one without a serious (1year+) relationship got a plus one.  He called his very new girlfriend (i.e. that had been on one date) in the middle of the reception and she showed up and was then rude to DH and I.

nothing went wrong as such i was just bummed with the video my uncle recorded of our wedding. He thought he had pressed record during basically the whole ceremony but he hadnt so the only bits we got from the ceremony were just of me getting out of the car and from when we signed the certificate, no vows or anything πŸ™ My step brother took over the recording at the reception and got lots but decided to stop recording before our first dance so we didnt get that on video either πŸ™ oh well

oh just remembered a few funny things happened, as i was making my way down to the aisle (i had a bit of a walk as it was in a park) first of all a dog ran up to me but luckily the owner got it to come back to him before it jumped on me lol, secondly i felt my garter fall down my leg as i was walking so i had to try pull it back up (easier said than done in  a wedding dress) and i tucked it into my thigh high stockings to stop it falling down again lol and during the ceremony my husband was referring to his family’s dog not being able to attend for the sake of my dress and a dog ran up right near us when he said this (this park also has a dog park section), i didnt see it as i had my back to it but a few people did and said the timing was impeccable in relation to his vows referring to dogs haha wish i had seen it!

Our best man gave a horrendous speech that included the following:

  • mention of prior DWIs
  • a bloody broken nose story
  • a story of vomit (from the night before his own wedding)
  • and it lasted 7 minutes

As the saying goes, it’s not a wedding without a horrible speech. Sigh.

My mother in law was making our cake, and it broke at 11pm the night before the wedding. She went to Giant Eagle, and found some red velvet cakes that happened to be white with deep red accents (one of our wedding colours). She then put them on tiers she had of different heights

 

It worked really well. So well, in fact, that had I have known I may have put them as my first choice. Best of all, they cost like $25. Honestly, Giant Eagle red velvet cakes, people, saves you tonnes off your cake budget πŸ™‚

*My mom cut her finger open (badly!) right before we were leaving for hair appointments. My Maid/Matron of Honor is a nurse though so she fixed her up!

*A girl’s car died  right across the bottom of my parents driveway (we were getting ready at my parents house). Luckily the tow truck came in time and everything was fine. I thought it was hilarious!

*My MOH’s dress zipper ripped all the way down during pictures – she had to be sewn into the dress. The pics are SO funny though – the photographer got the whole thing!

All in all, these things were mostly funny (minus my mom’s finger, ouch!) and make for great wedding stories!

*We had wedding crashers, which annoyed me! Paying for strangers to drink our booze basically (open bar) UGH

I ripped my bustle the first hour of bridal pics..

 

and since my train was free flowing the entire time, my niece (flower girl) lined my train with snails she found (during formal pics), cause they were ‘pretty’
