So the wedding came and went. I remember how nervous I was the night before. I went back to my parents house and I tried to sleep by midnight but both my parents were cooking up a storm! I don't think they went to bed until well past 1am and we were all suppose to wake up by 5am the next morning. Got up at 5:15am the next day and started hair/makeup promptly by 6am.
The whole day was a complete blur and I am very surprised at how smoothly everything went. We were on time for everything! All immediate family showed up early to the ceremony to take family pictures, ceremony started on time at 3:30pm and reception started around 6:30pm. I think I proved most people wrong about the whole stigma that all Asian weddings run late. Mine certainly didn't. Ha!
Of course there were some hiccups along the way:
1. Everyone dispersed after the ceremony and I didn't really get to take pictures with my family or bridal party afterwards.
2. The cake. OMFG my cake did not turn out anything like what I discussed with my baker. Another entry will be dedicated to this if/after my situation gets resolved.
3. I felt like I didn't take many pictures with guests at all during the reception. Hopefully my photographer got a lot of pictures.
LOL both my husband and I got so drunk by the end of the night that we both passed out in our suite after the wedding. I actually threw up in my husband's dad car! Yikes! All in all it was a fun night. I really didn't eat much but I didn't feel hungry at all. It was a lot of "ok what's next" and boom-boom-boom. I'm glad it went well, everyone said they had a great time, so I am happy and I finally get my life back. Whew. What a crazy year and a half it's been. I wouldn't do it again even if you paid me!
