Oh I'm so sorry! My wedding was not great either. Some things went right but a lot things went wrong. But as crazy as it sounds, it was just another thing my husband and I agreed on and brought us closer together. We were on the same team, sharing the misery. And married life has been great ever since. Fortunately, it was just one day and we never have to do it again!

Our wedding was anything but our wedding. Well to start things off, my family and his family don't get along. They had predispositioned hate for each other, so they didn't actually meet until the rehersal. My mom took over just about everything. We wanted a very small wedding. Our original guest list was around 35. Once our families got involved it ballooned up to about 100. My sister did the music, to save money, and she only used about 3 hours of the 10 hours of music I gave her, and put in a bunch of music my husband and I hated. I politely thanked her anyway, because I knew she had done a lot of work on it. Then she told all of my guests how I was a terrible sister because I didn't thank her enough. So throughout the day, my relatives were coming up to me telling me to thank my sister. Yeah, on MY wedding day. On top of that, I have a very large chest, and I had a strapless dress on. It fit me very well, but my sister had to very rudely pass the comment about me "popping out" of my dress during pictures. Needless to say the pictures with my family didn't turn out. I found out the day after the wedding that my grandmother was telling my sister how I was "throwing my life away" at the rehersal, and my husbands mother was in the room and heard every word. If I ever get married again there will be 4 people on the guest list. Me, the groom, and our witnesses. Other than the marriage part it was probably one of the worst days of my life, and he feels the same.

Our wedding was so great! Everything went perfectly smoothly. Well, at least to my knowledge (I think my mom straightened out our musicians while I was getting my hair done). We had a really pleasant day, not stressful, everything fell into place wonderfully, and it was very "us". I wouldn't change a thing.

Overall the wedding was great. My hubs family is crazy (but isn't everyone's in their own way) and my new F.I.L chewed out our coordinator at the rehearsal dinner for no apparent reason.

I was very laid back and enjoyed every minute of it. Except we forgot to practice cutting the cake as well, and basically took off a whole corner of it, and my new husband had one too many cocktails and decided to call out random people in our thank you toast...oh well :)

From our perspective, everything was a dream come true. I would not have had any clue that there had been glitches had a few parents not told me about it after we got back from the honeymoon. Luckily, the pictures only show what we saw - everything wonderful!

Challenge yourself today, and tomorrow you will thank yourself. That's a promise. You ARE worth the commitment.

Ours was perfect. There weren't any problems at all on the wedding day. Everything ran smoothly. Earlier that week there was a mix-up with the tuxedos, but that was all ironed out by the rehearsal dinner. The worst part of the day is that it had to end. emoticon

On the whole, I loved mine. We did have problems though... weren't sure until the last minute that his parents were going to be coming...a lot of lights in the church were burned out and the photographer didn't have much to compensate for this... best pics were taken by other people... my mom can makes cakes, but I wanted a crooked one, which she had never done, and since we were working like crazy to finish renovations on the house hubby and I live in, we never got to practice the cake... it was nearly a disaster, but the whole family came together to make it stay up. Worst part was that hubby and I got in a fight first thing in the morning... but we were okay by the time the wedding came along, I just wish I could erase that part. It was very rainy, so no outdoor pictures. His parents were rushing us to cut the cake so they could leave... but after they had gone, I definitely breathed a sigh of relief and could enjoy myself more. Besides hubby's parents, our family and friends were wonderful and we had a great time. And the wedding was early, so we had plenty of day left to peacefully enjoy each others company at a bed and breakfast before we rushed of on our honeymoon the next day. OH, we had Sunday dinner with the family, where they decorated our car since it had been raining the day before... a cousin's boyfriend wrote some naughty things and hubby got really upset about that... sheesh. But REALLY, the wedding was wonderful. I love my hair and dress and make up and had only simple decorations, I just wanted it to be simple and frugal and it was. :)

Ours wasn't perfect either. It was pretty stressful and I had often wished we eloped too. My 2 brothers dropped out as groomsmen and didn't come to the rehearsal. They showed up 5 minutes before the ceremony started and we got into a fight. Obviously, this was really poor timing and I was an emotional wreck. That overshadowed a lot of the happy memories. I was in the bathroom crying a lot when I should have been out dancing and talking to our guests. We had a very large wedding and I didn't have time to talk to everyone there and some people were upset about that. Our DJ was a flop too. He lost our song list we had emailed him a month earlier, didn't have a lot of the songs we requested, and totally forgot the garter and bouquet toss. We weren't really happy with our photos but that's primarily because I didn't lose as much weight as I wanted and was in the bathroom crying a lot so it wasn't the photographer's fault. And our bouquets weren't done right either. Most of this was small stuff that wouldn't have mattered but after the fight with my brothers, it seemed like everything was going downhill.
At the end of the day, the happiest memories were in the limo with our bridal party and alone with my husband. That was fun and we didn't have all the other stressful things going on.

Ours was crazy!!!
My family went nuts on me and eventually just took over the reception (I didn't even know what we were having at the reception until we were served!)
I was told that my decorations weren't good enough and my aunt re-decorated EVERYTHING.
My father didn't like my venue and pestered me until I finally changed it just to get him off my back.
My best friends refused to wear the bridesmaid dress, refused to get her nails done with us, refused to wear make-up and finalyy (to my relief) stepped down as a bridesmaid. (She's barely talked to me since.)
At the end of the day I was just so glad it was over and I have to say that there was only a few precious minutes of it that I can honestly say I enjoyed. I really seriously wish that we had gone to Vegas.
How about everyone else? How was your wedding, REALLY?
