As you may or may not know, I’m getting married this year! Which means I’m having – as are my Mam and my sister – wedding nightmares. So far I’ve not had any that memorable, but last night I had one I think I’ll remember forever!
So, I’ve decided to blog each one from now until October! Let’s hope they keep getting interesting…!
It’s the morning of the wedding. I’m at my parents house. Which is fine, because that’s my plan for the morning of the wedding. However, I’m fulling dressed in my wedding dress – my actual wedding dress – and everyone, I mean EVERYONE, the groom, the bridesmaids, the in-laws, all of the guests are there too. They can all see me. I’m a little confused by this. Surely everyone should be at the hotel? We aren’t getting married until 3.30pm, so why am I even dressed?
Suddenly, I can hear shouting. My sister and her husband – married two years today, read all about it here https://sweetsilverlinings2013.wordpress.com/2013/06/10/maid-of-honor-an-unmarried-woman-typically-of-noble-birth-attending-a-queen-or-princess/ – are arguing… I mean really shouting at each other. I walk into the bathroom, and my brother-in-law is crying but in an angry sort of way and yells at me when I asked what’s going on. Okay, I don’t have time for this, it’s my wedding day and I’m not entirely sure what’s going on!
Suddenly, an awful realization comes to me… the wedding seems to have come round pretty fast. So fast in fact, that we didn’t actually meet with our photographer. He’s not here, we haven’t actually had any confirmation from him and so he probably isn’t coming! (Don’t worry – we have had our confirmation, and it’s written in my diary when we need to meet with him!) I pick up my phone and dial his assistant, who is a bit confused, but I give her all of the info I can, and hope for the best!
I’m in a huge panic now, I can’t believe I’ve made such a huge mistake. Thankfully, I know a lot of people will have cameras with them!
Suddenly, I’m in the garden – still in my dress – sitting next to my fiance, who doesn’t seem phased at all! Just when I’m thinking nothing else can go wrong, I suddenly realize we haven’t ordered any vegetarian options for the food! How could I have forgotten??
Can I fix this really quickly? Probably not, as I also suddenly realize that we didn’t get a chance to meet with DJ… we haven’t even told him what our first dance is!!!
Just as I’m going into a total meltdown, I wake up! INSTANT RELIEF.
Thankfully, we’ve so far been very organised!
