On Monday in part one of wedding disasters I talked about my Ruined Wedding Dress. Today in part two I thought I would share with you two other disasters that I encountered.
This was honestly something that never crossed my mind as a potential disaster. When the idea of having house guests first entered my mind. I could only think of positive things. For instance I thought of the great quality time we could have, I thought about how much help they would be with the wedding, and I thought about how much fun we would have setting up for the wedding. However when it came down to it this was just another disaster.
For the entire month of July I had house guests. Unknowing to myself this would make more of a difference than I would have thought. I had to take more time off of work than I originally anticipated and I also wasn't able to dedicate time to making sure my wedding was getting planned like how I wanted it. My time instead was taken and focused towards meeting the needs of others. It was my job to make sure they were eating and entertained for the entire day. I was under the impression that knowing my wedding was coming up and that I work a 24 hours/7 days a week job. That I would be shown a little love and be helped or at least left alone when I needed it.
Having house guests present on the day of my wedding was also a comical mess. Time was ticking by and we were on a very time sensitive schedule. However my guests just stood around all morning. I didn't get the help I needed when it came to cleaning or decorating. It was an hour before I was supposed to leave for the church when I walked out of my room half dressed to see that my house guests were not even dress and ready to go. I did not for see myself having to baby others on my wedding day. It was honestly just one big crazy mess.
The Set Up -- Decorating
I had a vision for what I wanted the wedding to feel and look like. Although with all of my house guest, their continuous opinions, my time sensitive schedule, exhaustion, and frustration. I found myself walking further and further away from my vision. Which in the end only wasted, my families and I's time, energy, and money. It is no ones fault, but my own. I do believe that it would have been easier to stay truer to my vision if I had made a vision board. Instead of having a mental picture. I believe this would have been easier for everyone to understand and I would have been able to stay closer to my original vision.
My 25th Vowel Renewal Wedding Ceremony was aside from all of the disasters absolutely perfect. I got to renewal my vowels to my beloved husband. I got to share and celebrate the ceremony with my children. I also had the opportunity to ring in our 25th year with life long friends. While yes, there were definitely some things that I would do over differently. I still had a great 25th and am so excited for another 25 years.
