Briefly trying to mingle with *everyone* at the cocktail hour
My friend Shelley who I basically only got to say good bye to at the end of the night :(
...that the animals didn't come out while we were down by their cages to take pictures with us in front of them.
Although my cousin snapped this one while she was walking around before the wedding

...that we (or I should say our photographer) totally forgot to go get pics by the fish pond, llamas, orange orchard, old antique car, barn silo, zebras, fountains, fountain pool, bridges and bird cages...oh, and didn't get any twilight or night time shots with pretty soft lights glowing**
...that I was too wrapped up in everything going on to feel relaxed enough to have some different shots with Mr Fix It like sexy, romantic, laughing type shots.
...that I felt like I barely got to see or spend much time laughing with my bridesmaids before the wedding.
Yeah, that's me in the back getting ready while they are all hanging out

...that I barely had enough time to get into the photobooth and when I did I couldn't think straight to come up with crazier, funnier poses!
...that I totally forgot about the chocolate fountain until the end of the night when almost all the guests were gone and I stood there by myself scarfing down strawberries and blue chocolate.
...that I was feeling like I was going to pass out through half of the ceremony because my dress was strangling me...and that I didn't feel like wearing my dress through more of the reception because it was too damn heavy!

...that I barely danced with any of our guests...though when I did, it was sure fun!
...that either the caterer forgot the right linen for our memorial table or someone messed up and didn't read the design layout correctly so it was in a lame cream linen cloth instead of a cranberry satin cloth (I know that's trivial, but it still bothered me).
...that Mr Fix It and I (nor our photographer - blech!) thought to put our wedding rings on for all of our photos before the ceremony so they are not in the pictures we have of us.
Notice - no rings on either of our hands!!!
I wasn't feeling this staggered look at all! You can't even see my sister who had to stand
behind the tulip arrangement and pillar on the top of the stairs.
...that after it is all said and done, I totally want to do it all again! :) Can you say '5 year anniversary vow renewal' anyone?
Share Time: What about you? What did you think was not fair about your wedding day or just weddings in general or perhaps even the planning process?
** Though we did get a lot of shots at these locations in our post wedding shoot this week! :)
