So this past Friday was my wedding, and while I had a wonderful time, several things went wrong that are constantly reminded via my wedding photos.
For one, my mother-in-law, while hemming my dress, decided to go ahead without asking and added fabric to the straps to "hide my bra straps". Thing is, I wore a bra for the fitting, but I was wearing a strapless bra for the wedding! Had she suggested it, I would have let her know not to. Instead, she went ahead and added not only fabric, but fabric that didn't match the dress whatsoever. As a result, I look like I'm wearing a white sports bra under my champagne dress!
My wife told me as I discussed my displeasure to her that her mother tends to charge ahead without asking about things, and that it was best to just roll with it, which only made me tear up more.
When I asked MIL about it, she got upset and suggested that I should be grateful to her considering that she hemmed the dress for free and also was helping pay for the wedding, so I dropped it despite wanting to demand that she remove the fabric from the dress ASAP (She didn't drop off our dresses until 30 minutes before the ceremony started.).
Secondly, the officiant was suppose to wear black with a matching black cape she said she wanted to wear given the theme of the wedding was a Witch's Ball. Instead she showed up in a jean jacket covered in Pride patches. While I normally would have loved such a jacket, I assumed she was going to replace it with her cape for the ceremony and didn't realize she was wearing it until I was walking down the aisle.
This not only clashed with the aesthetic of the wedding, but upset my conservative family who already was uncomfortable attending a same-sex wedding, and felt that I was throwing my sexuality in their faces by having the officiant wear the jacket.
My question is, does anyone know if it's possible to photoshop the white strap out of my wedding photos? I know there isn't much that can be done regarding the officiant, but if I can get the straps out of my photos then I probably won't break down in tears whenever I look at them.
