Special Day Re-dos?

It feels like forever ago since I had my own wedding, though I know it has only been a few short years. All the pressure and planning seems to weight you down when it is your BIG DAY. Don't get me wrong I absolutely LOVED planning my wedding, but most brides will agree it is a lot of work no matter what type of bride you are. Even the most laid-back ladies, or type A planners that I have had the pleasure of spending time with have admitted no amount of planning, prepping and list making gets you as ready as you want to be. And believe me their weddings were gorgeous, yet they still felt like they needed to do more. So I guess the question in my head & reason for this post is when is enough, enough? When is everything exactly the way you want it to be? 

I recently read an article on a popular wedding website that asked it's readers what they would change about their wedding day. I was interested and wanted to see what other former brides had to say, but part way through I stopped reading. It hit me that all of these brides were picking apart this beautiful happy day that was the "first" start as husband and wife. I loved my wedding day! I put so much thought into every detail of my special day; so many friends and family members were there to celebrate with us, many of whom helped us get through the months leading up to the big day.  I wouldn't take back any moment of my special day with my husband, I am happy to have had so many people who care so much about us see us "begin" our life together.  My husband was and still is amazing! My girls looked beautiful & his guys were perfect! And our wedding fit us, it matched our personalities, and made us happy!

It rained on the morning of my wedding but the sun came out just long enough for us to get outside and take pictures. My hair dressed refused to use a curling iron & my curler curls went limp half way through the day. I booked the hall well in advance & ended up changed the date to push the wedding up so my Grandfather who was ill could be with us. My husband-to-be had the wrong flowers- his best man's matched mine, and they stayed out late the night before coming to the hall later we had planned. People got lost and came late, some didn't come at all for one reason or another. 

And I wouldn't take any of it back, because it was my day...well, OUR day!


  1. Perfectly said Vic... Why regret any part of your wedding day... It's the things that go wrong that give your wedding day character! I agree I wouldn't have changed a thing! Xo

  2. Thanks so much for reading my blog!
    I agree 100% life isn't perfect, things happen but I think most of those things happen for a reason. I don't know anyone who can't go back and pick apart a specific day, changing, modifying, redoing but then it wouldn't be that day it would be a different day with a different out come.
