Just wanted to post to get things off my chest and see if anyone has any ideas/tips to help me deal with this.
I feel so disappointed and embarrassed about how my wedding went. Things went wrong from the get go, my hairdresser was late and took ages doing my hair, which meant I had hardly anytime to do my make up. So getting ready was a great big rushed panic and I couldn't enjoy getting into my dress and having photos. And I absolutely hated my hair, the hairdresser forgot what I asked him to do in my trial and I ended up with a bit of a beehive.
We were nearly 20 mins late walking down the aisle, and I found out later the registrar and my sister in law (one of the ushers) were running round asking people where we were. The ceremony was OK but I regret not having any readings as the guests could've been a bit bored. After that ceremony my husband hugged me really hard, which was lovely, but he broke one of the straps on my dress (it was originally a strapless dress and I sewed some straps on myself, which was a stupid idea as I'm no sewing expert!). This then meant I had to wear a faux fur shrug for most of the photos, and you couldn't see my dress which is such a shame as it was beautiful and an expensive gift from my mum.
We hired a cheap photographer and the photos aren't that great, lots of me looking a bit tipsy.
The worst bit was when the car came to pick us up from the ceremony venue, to take us down to the harbour where the boat would pick us up for our reception. The driver hadn't planned the route so he got lost, meaning all the guests wer ewaiting for us at the harbour for at least 10 mins. We'd had fish and chips delivered to the boat and by the time we got there they were cold. I was mortified.
We asked a friend to make a pavlova instead of a cake, which tasted lovely, but didn't look that great as she ran out of time to Decorate it.
After the boat trip we went to the pub which was really busy. We didn't have a proper evening do as I have a health condition and was worried id be too tired. But in retrospect I would've been absolutely fine. I did enjoy the day and lots of people said they had a great time, I just have so many regrets and wish I could do the whole thing again.
Does anyone else feel like this, or have any tips on how to get past this?
