I'M MARRIED!!!!

Yup... I know - October 5th was like 10 days ago... but man, life is hectic!

Okay, first things first- when I last posted the night before the wedding (Let's get'er done!) everything was going great!... Okay... maybe not great....

1. Groomsman lost his tie so my Husband had to give him his and where a purple one instead of teal

2. Groomsman forgot to bring his shirt so one of my bridesmaids drove back to get it before I was told

3. The dock we were supposed to be married on was taken out early due to strong current and high river

4. The weather was calling for points where is would stop raining but at those points it only slowed down to a mist

5. Didn't get any of the dessert... honestly it was just like how it was on HIMYM where they couldn't get fed but at least I had the main supper

6. We say the videographer run to the ceremony site after we already started the processional...

7. The tent that was supposed to be set up at the second ceremony site wasn't set up and we were only told this 4 hours before the ceremony start time... they informed us it takes 5 hours to set it up...

Started the day crying with tears of joy and excitement, then it changed to crying due to weather and not being able to even get married at the second ceremony site, and then my Husband worked his miracle magic!

Somehow, whether it's because my Husband is a Carpenter and a couple of his GM's are in the trades as well, or maybe because they aren't in their 50's like the owners - they got the tent up without me knowing it in just ONE HOUR!!! ... Que the tears

The rain didn't go away in time for the pictures, it didn't go away in time for the ceremony or even the reception. But we did it! We got soaked - but we did it!

Looking forward to getting more pictures (馃摲: victoria-pereira @ live.ca)

Now for the positive/words of wisdom! Smiley tongue

1. We did it!

2. Our food was a hit!

3. Everybody loved our wedding favours (blankets)

4. Nothing except the weather was a downer for guests - which they can't blame us for!

5. Did I mention I'm married now?


Okay, ya - those emergency kits... didn't need them. Nothing is that big of a deal in hindsight but you ARE allowed to be upset in the moment. Enjoy the day yes - but it doesn't go by very fast... at least it didn't for us. At one point we just wanted to hurry up and get to the reception part! You will be FINE when it comes to food - we had a full lunch meal no problem and weren't even that hungry by supper...

We are all going to have different outcomes - but yes, I'm glad it's done!!

So ya... any questions for the new Mrs. Doll? Smiley tongue

    I feel you RE: windy as it was windy on/off the day of our wedding too! I'm sure your professional photos came out great though as you two still look beaming in the ones your mom took. Smiley smile

    Thanks Smiley smile

    I think so - could have been worse and had it be windy too!! Or it could have rained all night, but it stopped around 1am when the guests left and we had our after party bonfires!

    All the best to you! You looked perfect. The cloudy weather probably will make for better pictures (it's not as harsh as a blazing sun). You are married. Time to start the next adventures together. Good luck with school.

    It鈥檚 ok!!!! In the end we are married regardless of the ups and downs to get there! I got married in Winnipeg this last weekend (oct 12th!) and never expected to have a winter wedding.
    All this didn鈥檛 stop us
    - my flowers got dropped off Thursday (fear of road closures) so I had to keep them from dying! - wrong ring for the groom a week before the wedding- complete blizzard the day before the wedding So I had to find a backup indoor location for pictures - power outage when I woke up at my place (where all bridesmaids were supposed to get ready.) my makeup artist is an angel and offered her place which was 5 minutes away from my place! - maid of honours dress zipper split open 20 minutes before the wedding. And sooooo many other things that weren鈥檛 part of the plan!But the day went on and everyone had a good time. I look at it as it鈥檚 part of my story! Congratulations on getting married!!
