#1 I will look terrible (It hink I looked pretty good, I’m happy with most of hte pictures the dress didn’t photograph that well at certain angles)

#2 it will be lame, no one will have fun/dance (it wasn’t hte craziest wedding, but people did dance and it was a good time)

#3 There will be some embarrassing moment (not really, but my husband did flub on his vows a little when he said “sign of my love and fidelity” it sounded like he said “infedility”…lol so the priest had him repeat it, no one noticed everyone looked confused when I tried to explain it)

#4 my family will act like idiots (true, did happen…they were jerks and they apparently still don’t feel bad about it, and although it changed the mood of the wedding compltley, it didn’t destroy the day)

#5 my fiance’ and I will be too distracted to having any really romantic moments (aside from saying I do)….true, there was too much going on..my husband was the most distracted of the two of us, he was just so worried about everyone’s comfort, well being…we didn’t get a moment to really go “whoaah..we’re married!” until the next day….

8. Spend too much money on the things that won’t even be memorable

My biggest fear was that my hair/makeup artist would forget & not show up. She was there 1 hour before I expected her ๐Ÿ˜‰

1) Fear: it would rain. Reality:  record heat of 101. Seriously.  Hottest day since 1984

2) Fear: the room would be too packed/crowded. Reality: it was perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

3) Fear: I would feel some dress regret. Reality: LOVED it!!


there are a lot of things that can and probably will for wrong or not according to plan, but just embrace the day.  take a look around at your family and friends and your new spouse and it will be amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

FEAR: Photos would turn out not to my high expectations

REALITY: Photos met my expectations and more!


FEAR: Timeline would not be followed

REALITY: Timeline was generally followed with some late people (as I predicted) but it DID push my photography time further which was really annoying.


FEAR: Would be too windy for my cathedral veil.

REALITY: I WAS windy but made for good photos.


FEAR: Reception dinner would be bed.

REALITY: Reception food quality was okay. Noise was a bit loud but honestly, it was fine. =)


I would say that my fears were pretty much realistic fears but the reality wasn’t as disasterous as I imagined.
