Just marriedHi everyone! Wow, it feels like I haven't been on these forums in ages. I think my last post was 5-6 months ago RIGHT before I got married. This is my first check in!! Hi!
So, I didn't want to get on here because I've been struggling. Up until... well, literally yesterday, I realized EVERY TIME i thought about my wedding day I was sad. I had stress and anxiety thinking about all the details that didn't come together. I kept thinking about what went wrong, not any of the good stuff. When I looked at my wedding photos, I would just pick out every flaw in my own face or at the venue. This being said, I thought if I got on here I'd come on here and just cry and complain about all the things I hated about my wedding day. I don't want to do that now! I'm excited to share photos and talk about it, so here we go.
Yesterday I was looking through my pictures again and I realized how much went RIGHT!!! The caterer actually ran out of food for the wedding party (we chose to eat last) because I had guests bring several more people than invited (this is the country, y'all. People forget their manners. *eyeroll*). But we were the only ones who missed out!! And we got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS on the food. Our wedding party was full of our best friends and they were encouraging.
The designer who made my programs didn't make them or deliver them in time and they got to my MIL's house the night before. Guess where they never left? Yep, the mailbox. I was too busy with Rehearsal Dinner stuff to catch it. But you know what? No one even noticed. It wasn't the end of the world.
People got desserts before we cut the cake (again, ugh). But my new husband and I got some super cute pics and got to just have a sweet little moment together by the cake, so it didn't even matter. There was enough dessert for everyone and it was DELICIOUS.
The guests thought the venue was beautiful, the ceremony went off PERFECTLY. There are things I could pick apart all day long about the reception, or my dress, or the food, blah blah blah. But honestly, it was the best day of my life. I have finally gotten over my post-wedding-blues and realized it was still such a beautiful day. All of my very favorite people, from all over the country, met us to celebrate our love. What's cooler than that?
Nothing. Please be encouraged, bride to be. It will all be okay.
