I took wedding preparations very seriously. It was a two year engagement, so I had a lot of time to plan for every teeny tiny thing. And I did. With the help of several significant people, the wedding was pulled off successfully.
Admittedly, towards the end I stopped caring about the minute details.
There was a noticeable crease on the guest stone sign – I did not reprint it. A jewel came off of the center of my dress – I let that roll off my back. I should have touched up the roots of my hair one more time before the big day – I couldn’t be bothered.
Of course, no amount of preparations can assure a completely surprise-free wedding.
Here are the top 5 things I wasn’t expecting. (This is separate from the major things that went wrong, which you can read about here.)
