I'm really disappointed. I need to complain.
Okay okay so I know we're not supposed to compare our weddings to each others...but we all do right? Well...after spending some time on PW and seeing people's wedding-night suites and reception/ceremony venues and wedding-cars I'm getting really really disappointed with the resources I've been given. I am disappointed because:
- I had to book our venues without ever seeing them because I wouldn't be in town until 6 weeks before the wedding and OF COURSE no one here makes websites for themselves so I just had to try to go off pictures FI gave me. As a result I totally HATE my ceremony site. It's right next to a major road and I have nightmares that some jerk on a motorcycle revvs by in the middle of our vows...and to top that there's no power so we have to find a generator for our sound system. They chopped all of what used to be big bushes next to our grassy area down to stumps so we're getting married next to stumps. Annnd to top THAT there is a random patch of cement right next to the stumps. Stumps and cement....how pretty.
- I always wanted to leave the ceremony by carriage. There aren't any here and to top that off all of the limos in town have been booked so I have to hire a rental car that probably won't be white and try and find someone to drive it. I don't know what to do.
- Our reception venue is so far from what I had in mind. I see other brides dancing in gorgeous rooms with chandeliers and tall windows and soft lighting...ours is a restaurant at a motel and is nothing special. I wish I could afford to just drape the whole room in white fabric and hide it. Also, the door to the bathrooms are on the wall in the same room as where people are eating...so someone will be eating not 10 feet from the toilet. Yummy.
- I always pictured my wedding night/day after the wedding in a lavish suite complete with in-room jacuzzi and a canopy bed and balcony...you know the type. Yeah, in this small town we can only manage your typical 4 star business suite. Not exactly romantic. :(
I strongly believe that I will enjoy my wedding day because FI will be there and I love him so much and really all that matters is the two of us getting married. But...I can't help but be disappointed at all of the above. They just don't have anything like what I wanted here, we're doing the best we can with what we have but it's just sad because this is the only time we get to do this and I wish it could look like it does in my head. I just needed a place to complain where people wouldn't feel offended like I'm saying it's not good enough here or something. yeah...just needed to.
