Let me start this off by saying my wedding was amazing. I married my best friend and we have a beautiful marriage.
Or as Ben Affleck would say " The best kind of work"
When I got married I wasn't blogging, and pinterest wasn't around ( I can't imagine all the other projects I would have added if it had been) but I wanted to recap 5 things that I had as an option that I turned down and wished I didn't.
We got married almost 2 years ago and this wasn't something that was all the rage like it is now. I feel like it hit right as we got married and I was to nervous about breaking tradition. However I wish we would have done this. It would have allowed us to get more photos as a bridal party and as a couple that I feel like we lacked. Also I would love to remember Andrew's reaction when he first saw me but I was so nervous I can't remember.
Smaller Guest List
We had over 200 people at our wedding. I remember at a certain point I told my bridesmaids to not let anyone besides Andrew, family or bridal party near me. I was so tired of talking and I just wanted to enjoy the reception. I would say a quarter of the people there I couldn't put a name to their face
Eat before entering the reception
Our venue coordinator offered this to us. We could eat in a separate room during the first half of the cocktail hour then mingle the second half and enter the reception. I ate two bites before I was pulled in so many different directions and then forgot about eating. Thank goodness I have an amazing husband who as soon as we got to the hotel ordered me a pizza :)
Hired a videographer
I didn't do this because I thought pictures would be enough. However I was so nervous during the ceremony I don't remember much! I wish I video taped it also for family who couldn't make it and it would be amazing to watch in the future if we have daughters when they get married!
So did you do any of these things in your wedding?
What were some things you wish you wouldn't have turned down?
