I am actually mad at TLC right now. They have too many dad blasted wedding shows. I'm annoyed that I love these shows and Im also annoyed that they have marathons every weekend.
This weekend I was determined not to be sick and in bed all day, so I opted to DVR the 'Say Yes to the Dress' marathon... ugh... I love that show.
I also love '4 Weddings.' Every time I watch that show I get annoyed at my wedding.
When you're in the moment, planning your wedding, its too stressful. You end you just compromising on too many things, and in my case I was too stressed to enjoy it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure my wedding was fine BUT if I could turn back time, I'd do it all differently.
I have a different perspective now... all the things I thought were important actually weren't.
#1- I would have spent a lot more time and money on my dress. At the time I just picked something that I didnt really love because its too difficult to find a modest wedding dress.
I would have loved to have something more fun and dramatic... the pictures would have been way better.
This one is my fave!
Watching Say Yes To The Dress makes me wish I could have had a fun dress shopping experience with my mom and sisters... which I didnt... AT ALL!
#2- I wouldn't have had a reception. Really we should have just had a dinner with our family. All the traditional stuff like first dance, throwing the bouquet and all that really isn't necessary. Rent out a room at a nice restaurant, throw some amazing center pieces in there, some fun pics, and you're good to go.
My sister wanted to just go alope to Fiji... which I think would have been an amazing idea... then just have a big celebration party when you get back... then you honestly can just share your wedding day with your spouse and thats the most important thing really.
#3- I loved my cake, but if I could do it over, I would have been a little more creative and have a fun cake
What would you do differently at your wedding?
