Decisions, Decisions....Let me start off by saying that my husband and I are both unsatisfied with how our wedding day turned out. In fact we often choose not to talk about it, because we both end up aggravated, upset, etc. Long story short we spent a lot of time, effort, and money doing DIY projects, decorating, etc. and we have nothing to show for it. Our wedding video was pretty good, but big moments were missing including the mother/son dance, bouquet toss, etc. Our wedding photos are all action photos, photos of guests, posed family photos, etc. We don't have a single wedding photo of us from our wedding day. I have asked wedding guests, and no one took pictures because we requested an unplugged ceremony. Everyone, and I mean everyone is asking for our wedding photos still. I thought we could appease everyone by gifting them a copy of the wedding video....nope...we were wrong. They all liked the video, but are asking for photos! I have tried to explain to everyone that our photos didn't turn out well, I am still waiting on some final edits, etc. It's extremely stressful and honestly makes me wish we didn't even have a wedding.
We had a hard first year of marriage, attended marriage counseling, recently bought our home, and are in the process of unpacking and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. For instance, I have this entire box full of wedding items...decorations, flowers, toasting flutes, Mr. & Mrs. photo albums, frames, etc. No idea what to do with it.
I settled for a closer to home wedding so his family would be able to attend, but my longing desire for a wedding at the beach hasn't died out yet. I guess I just feel like we have come so far even though we have only been married for going on 2 years. I want something to look at and celebrate instead of feeling upset, aggravated.
