Back and married 10 DAYS already!
Most people haven't sent me or uploaded their pictures yet, but there are a few at:

www.weddingturtle.com/alexandcris

The ONLY issue we had was my MUA showed up almost 1/2 an hour late, and she already had allowed herself only an hour (she insisted it could be done in that time, even though we all knew it couldn't), so my wedding was delayed an hour. Guests didn't mind being "stuck" on the beach, but it was rather hot and it took an hour away from the 3 hour reecption, so we didn't get to spend a lot of time with guests.

Other than that, a perfect day.

This is my back up dress and I know I look like a huge marshmallow! But, since my dress never came, I had to make due.

Oh and FIVE people didn't show up at the last minute (plus one child) (we only had 39 confirmed, so that's a lot)! Two of them never even bothered to let me know, and I still haven't heard from them (my niece and her fiance).


SO rude--I had to pay for each beach chair and their meals (although the dogs didn't mind the meals LOL). I had to send the meals home because we went straight to the airport, so mom gave them a treat :)

Bottom line is you had a great day and you married the man of your dreams. Enjoy your new life as a married woman and I hope you have a great and blessed marriage.

Sorry things weren't perfect (some people can be so rude!) but congrats on getting married! Off to see your pics now :)

*Edit: You did not look like a marshmallow! lol You looked beautiful and even though it was your back up dress, it looked amazing on you and perfect for a beach wedding. Congrats again!

I surprised hubby and had his daughter "get married" with us. She's there holding one of each of our hands.

And, yes, that's a FREE vistaprint sign in the foreground :)

Congrats so glad that you have a positive outlook on things. I would have been so upset about the MUA and guests that didn't show. You looked great.

you do not look like a huge marshmallow...you look beautiful :)
Congrats!
I understand your frustration on guests not showing. I had 2 people not show...one had an emergency with his kid come up and the other decided not to show after my bachelorette party and finding out that her ex husband was dating someone new and could potentially be gay. I was livid that she knew a month prior as I had a friend who really wanted to come but I couldn't invite b/c of the guest list.

Wow, Cydney!

We were so tight-budgeted, that I wish at least my niece would have let me know. Her mom was there and said "she had 3 closings scheduled for today" (she's a real estate agent). That means she knew in advance. I almost want to send her a bill for the meals and stuff just to be a *b*, but HER wedding is next so payback is definitely happening!

I told her mom to let her know that she owes me a big fat wedding present with all those commissions haha

And the MUA--I will be writing about this in my review. Her work was great, but the timing was completely unacceptable.

Yeah...I wouldn't be too thrilled if I were in your shoes Crisanda...knowing that she knew about these closings and your wedding...she should have had the decency to let you know in advance. When you averaged out how much our wedding per guest cost it was roughly $175/guest...if you actually divided it out per the cost of the wedding it would be about $233/guest. So the fact that my guests failed to show made me a bit angry...but had I been a tight budget I would have been very upset. I would at least let her know your feelings and that you were on a strict and tight budget...but since she IS family, I wouldn't let it ruin the relationship.
Be the bigger person and go to her wedding if you RSVP yes...it will make you look better :)

We won't be going to the wedding. Both nieces over the past 2 years have suddenly turned into people I don't even like anymore, and I helped raise them. They don't acknowledge Christmas or birthday gifts, don't return texts or messages on their FB profiles, and don't have the courtesy to contact us when they are in town for Disney knowing we have passes and their grandmother would love to see them, if only for 5 minutes. The cost wasn't so high--about $25 a person, but to not even call, text, or send us a card (and she did this with the shower, too), is the final straw for me--and my mom, who took it worse than I did.

So, just like they were too busy for me---we will be too busy for them. And hubby and mom are ANGRY over their treatment of me, so it wouldn't be a good idea to go.

This wedding taught us a LOT about what friends and family we can count on. What an eye-opener!
