We had a DOC so for the most part, out day ran pretty smoothly, and it was a gorgeous day.

Two big regrets: even though I gave my photographer a shot list, we still missed key shots like of me and my sister alone, me with groomsmen, some VIPs..

Second, and most important, I would’ve skipped our afterparty. We were tired, people got sloppy drunk and some fights broke out. Not the way I want to remember our wedding. Hopefully, this is a non-issue for most people!

ladylawyer:  I wish I had asked someone to video our first dance. We took lessons and everything and we dont even have a cellphone video of it!

ladylawyer:   What you assume that people will know… They won’t.  If you want something done correctly, do it yourself  or leave specific instructions.  Even if you minimize the chaos something is bound to go wrong- don’t worry about it and enjoy your day  because it goes so fast! 

Ie.  You tell your photographer to take pictures of certain things but I didn’t say “I like options” and received one picture of my favor ( not how you would think someone would pose it) and not all my centerpieces that were different from each other (we only had five tables so it wouldn’t be a crazy request).   I don’t think any of the staff paid close attention to details but I still loved the day.

Just any little instruction -include it!

 Oh! And nobody had tissues.  Everyone was crying during the ceremony but nobody except for my officiant had tissues.  Thank God she passed me one.  You can see from the pics everyone using their hands and for some reason my sister had a hand towel from the hotel.  I literally laughed out loud when I saw my professional pictures with her and the towel.. Lol

ana2017:  my Maid/Matron of Honor immediately took off her ring and her husband’s (we were all under the chuppah) and we all moved on. It made of a cute video and some great pictures. Wedding planner found them quickly and we switched it up during the ceremony… Lol

ladylawyer:  I should have given my photographer a list of “must have photos”. Don’t get me wrong, we have a lot of pix but I wish I had more of the older generations (for keepsakes).  I gave him a photo list but I didn’t include any “untraditional” pix.

ladylawyer:  I wish I’d relaxed more and stopped focusing on x, y, and z, where xyz = anything other than focusing on staying grounded and excited about the wedding.

Oh I just thought of something else – I wish I’d bought a newspaper as a keepsake of the date.  I intended to, and then forgot.
