I love your story! Probably very annoying at the time but you’re going to love telling it in 15 yrs.

My mom was supposed to get her hair done with my godmother at lunchtime but for whatever reason decided to skip it because she was too hungry (what the eff). She then asked a friend to do her hair which apparently turned out to be a disaster. We were all staying at a resort 45 min from my mom’s house and she hadn’t brought anything to do her hair because she assumed she was going to the hairdresser with my godmother. So she comes barrelling into my room at like 4pm, her hair is wet and sticking out in like 80 directions and asks my hair lady if she can do something with it. We were supposed to start formals at 4:30 so this put a giant kink in my schedule, plus I now assumed every pic with my mom was going to be awful. My girl snuck my mom in and we ended up being about 30 minutes behind schedule but it was definitely the most holy sh*t moment of the day.

@hisgoosiegirl:  I think it’s totally understandable to not want the room next to his parents on your WEDDING NIGHT.  Even if you hadn’t waited until your wedding night, it still would have sucked to have to be “aware” of any noise or anything that might happen, but to have it be your first time with each other and next to your parents?!?! uh-uh. glad you got to move!!!!

@hisgoosiegirl: Oh dear Lord. And this is why we’re staying in a completely different hotel on our wedding night. Thanks for reaffirming that this was in fact a good idea.

It rained all day, so I couldn’t get the outside pics I wanted. And my dress was a little loose, which I liked, but looking at the pics, i wish I would have gotten a corset back to make it form to me a little bit better.

The pics things has  bummed me out alot, but my SIL is going to do anniversary pics for us at the spot I wanted wedding pics at, so hopefully that will help make up for it

Our officiant showed up 45 minutes late to our wedding and only called 10 minutes before it was to start. She then blamed me even though I had everything in email to prove her wrong. On top of this, she wrote us a nasty letter telling us we were going to Hell, getting a divorce, and made comments about our child who died.

My wedding day was the best, couldn’t ask for a more perfect day.  However, I do recall 3 minor snafus:

1. Forgot to take my engagment ring off my finger and switch it over to my other hand.  DH put the wedding band next to my Engagement Ring.

2. The planner forgot to put flowers on the table wehre we had the love letter adn wine box and forgot to take out th wine from the box.

3. The cake deco was just “eh” it was not like the pictures I gave her but it tasted delicious.

All in all, it was “perfect” for me.

I had a slight mishap with my Seating Chart which ate into my getting ready time & I forgot to pick up the bubble machine we rented for our send off.

Otherwise no mishaps =)

@hisgoosiegirl: Oh my!

The worst for us was the DOC didn’t make sure the table numbers were on the tables according to my layout.  I spent so much time working on it that as soon as we walked in all I could think was “you’re not supposed to be there, you’re not supposed to be there, WE’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE!”  I had this momentary thought of making everyone stand up and move while it got fixed.  Especially since we weren’t even by some of the wedding party and our families.

Oh my goodness.   I would go through hell or high water to make sure my brides and grooms aren’t anywhere NEAR their families! 

So sorry that happened!

From my first wedding… a sudden storm came so we ran back from the ceremony and had to move the cocktail reception indoors…. not nearly as fun since we got married at a Tiki Bar.  But… the steel drummer who was to play took off after the ceremony because of the rain, and our DJ wasn’t finished setting up snce he thought he had 90 minutes to go… and our wedding cake hadn’t been brought in yet.  Holy craziness.

I can’t wait to see what happens this weekend!

@TheFutureMcBride: I’d ask “tell me you are joking”, but I know that you aren’t. What a downright awful, evil person. How dare anyone take something as far as to write a letter about such awful things, and to bring up something so hurtful and personal. I am so sorry that you had to deal with that. In reality though, she must be a very, very sad witch. F her. Anyways, I hope the rest of your day was great!! 🙂
