So, I wish I could say it went off without a hitch. BUT, it was kind of the wedding of disasters. Which sucks, bc I put so much hard work into it.; but it was kinda so bad it was HILARIOUS.
I got my hair dyed two days before the wedding, and look at my roots= horrible.
We went to get our pics taken downtown and it was the civil rights game, so most of downtown Cincy was shut down, and there were 500,000 people all over the square
;( so we tried eden park and about 20 brides were up there getting pics taken. So with only an hour left we ran down to Sawyer point to get a few shots. I only got maybe 30 total. So sad. Then we met at the church at 5pm to get family shots done. Neither mine or chris show up till almost 5:45. So we only got 15 min of family pics before I had to hid bc guests were showing up.
The ceremony was great, except that during our vowels the retarded DJ did her sound check and had music Blaring. (so loud someone had to go downstairs and tell her to turn it off.)and like 30% of the people who RSVP'ed didnt show up! What a waste of money! AND my priest changed all my reading at the very last second because he wanted different ones. Our priest's knees gave out during the vowels.
Then for the bridal party entrance she didnt do Michael jackson, but instead skipped over all my BP names, and did going to the chapel. RU4 effin real! Fast forward to first dance. "well I dont have your song right now, but if this was my wedding, I'd want this one." and proceeds to play some song i've never heard as our first dance song. Didnt have mom/son song either. We met with her in person to go over music. How in the F did she not have it!! Then the first 2 songs she played were on my do not play list. (she played 6/10 throughout the night) did my cake song before the cake, so had to sub another. My last dance song; mid reception. she missed playing the music for my slideshow and had to reshow it again. And didnt get to do a bouquet/garter toss bc she had no music. So my best friend- after me crying my eyes out- did a mock one after the wedding. AND she kept the music on during the speeches, so no one heard anything. I emailed and called her (the DJ) last night demanding a full refund or Im taking her to court. She literally ruined my wedding.
Then- the only task my darling husband had the whole wedding, was pay for the food. He forgot, of course. So they almost took it away. Seconds before I went down the aisle, I had to beg them to leave it. THANK GOD they let me call in the payment the next day just on good faith.
plus- the top part of my cake didnt get saved. And we didnt get any before it was all eaten! Then my bustle broke, so we were holding it and saftey pinning it up all night.
It was so horrible, that I couldnt help but laugh. It was either be super mad and cry all night, or laugh about how so many things could go wrong. So I drank-ALOT! instead :)
**finally to top it all off, we found out yesterday that some of our gifts were stolen. And the church called today and wants another $600 for beer money? ARE YOU SERIOUS. For what?
But heres the good:
The weather held out, which was great. No rain! The shots we did at sawyer point will turn out awesome. My hotel room was the bomb.com. Seriously a loft. It cost $375 a night and had a gorgeous view over the river into Cincinnati. It was a gift from my aunts. They rock!
Our rehearsal dinner was spectactular. I rented out an old haunted mansion. It was super dress and very very fun. The gifts were a smash. The guys loved their belt buckles and the girls all loved the individuality of their gifts. For once, not a complaint. And the food rocked!
We ended up last minutes getting transportation for only $100! Which was really cool. A big 15 passanger limo van that my dad drove for us. Hes so sweet.
All the details and hard work really paid off. The hall looked phenominal. Everything turned out way better than I expected. I cant wait to get the pics back to show you.
Ive never been so excited or happy in my life. I couldnt stop smiling. Chris was too.
My bridesmaids are freaking awesome. they helped with the 7 hour set up the day before and the 5 hour clean up the day after. Im lucky to have such great people.
The ceremony was beautiful, the food was yummy, the cake was so good not a single peice was left. The candy buffett and the photobooth were huge party pleasers.
Everyones telling me it was the best wedding they've ever been to- minus the DJ. So they didnt notice the problems, just me
We really had a fun time, when we started drinking. It was a blast. And ended it in some hot married fun :p
