What went wrong at our wedding*

‘My rubbish wedding report’ was the subject of the email Amy sent me when I shamelessly begged her to tell us about her day. Readers, it is definitely not rubbish. It shines with as much joy and love and downright awesomeness as Amy and James’ big day itself did. Those things that when wrong? Just things. As Amy says, ‘things don’t matter.’

And with those wise words, I hand you over to the mermaid herself…

The weather was atrocious

My hair did not go how I wanted it to

Nor did my bouquet (wrong colour)

Or our vows (we ended up giving a very weird version we hadn’t chosen)

Because of the aforementioned weather we couldn’t decorate the way I’d wanted to

Neither of us got a bloody cup of tea after the ceremony as we were too busy posing for photos

The marquee was smaller than we thought making it a squeeze to get everything in and meaning we couldn’t use a couple of the things I’d made such as my DIY photobooth/screen (which was really awesome!)

I was about an hour late getting ready (but still made it to the ceremony early)

I forgot to make a sign indicating the parking area so everyone parked in the field

We forgot to put the soft drinks out for the kids and non drinkers

We forgot to put out the scissors and glue for campervan building

There was a problem with taxis due to there being 2 big regional events in the area on the same day

We had 3 annoying guests (one arriving late then being a dick – my response – ignore his existence, one moaning at me about not liking the music – my response “Tough!”, one moaning at me about the taxis – my response “Where do you think I have hidden my phone in this dress? Go and ask them at the pub to call them”)  

What went right at our wedding

It stopped raining apocalyptically an hour before and our venue manager (who is a forest manager, not a wedding planner – they do 3 a year) ran around like a headless chicken moving everything from inside to outside to give us the ceremony we wanted as soon as it stopped

Our photographer showed up early and somehow managed to get me out of the massive flap I’d gotten myself into

 

My brother’s girlfriend put streamers on our chairs seeing as we couldn’t have them strung from the roof and they looked ace

Our registrars were two of the loveliest women I’ve ever met

Everyone came (including my friend Liz who we thought might miss the ceremony because of her train and I saw sprinting into the venue just before us)

All of the kiddies had a great time and no babies cried during the ceremony – not even the ones we’d been told probably would be wailing (not that we’d have minded)

We saw people we hadn’t seen in years and realised how much we miss them

We got to drive into our reception in Bertie with everyone waiting outside cheering and waving

People brought some effing amazing cakes!

There was some excellent welly coordination going on

The dancefloor was full pretty much all night

We had 117 BRILLIANT guests

Everything else

We got married. 

My conclusion – things don’t matter, people do – surround yourself with good ones. 

*this is not a moan, merely a fact, and hopefully a reassurance to future brides.

    What went wrong at our wedding

    The busses didn’t turn up. And the one that did was late.

    Our photographer took amazing photos of us but didn’t get any of my favourite almost second parent Aunts….but about twenty of my parents friends I didn’t want to invite in the first place.

    The caterer poured the champagne tower themselves.

    And stuck awful diamonte on our place cards, despite me telling them not to.

    The taxi took three of our friends to THE WRONG WEDDING where upon the groom at that wedding kicked them out when he thought they were wedding crashers.

    I got upset about everyone leaving early at 8pm when actually it was half twelve (they aren’t kidding about it going fast) and about how it rained all day when actually it didn’t rain once.

    Things that went right

    Being married.

    Everything. Even the above.

      Only at a wedding could a caterer pouring a champagne tower be a BAD THING. And now I want a champagne tower. In my flat!

      The guests going to the wrong wedding is brilliant – they’re going to talk about that for years!!

        Yeah…a guy came up to them and asked if he could help. They were merrily going ‘hi yeah, we’re friends of the groom from London’ and he said….,

        ‘No I’m the groom’.

        To which they ran like the wind.

        The best thing was the bride’s surname was the same as my husbands so the signage for the ‘Xxxx and Xxxx wedding’ could have been right.

        Sorry Angus and Victoria…..but your photos look lovely

            Its Kilworth (theirs) and Kelmarsh (ours). The taxi driver came back later to pick up another friend and told that friend that he realised that he’d given some guests a lift to the wrong place.

            It has created one of my favourite ever photos from the wedding as my husband **insert giggle** mentioned it during his speech and everyone found it hillarious. They made it 15 minutes in.

          We actually had some people turn up at our wedding evening do that were meant to be at the wedding the night before. I think one of our parents spotted them standing by the bar looking a bit confused, and after checking that nobody knew who they were the hotel staff went and spoke to them and they left. When I found out what had happened I actually felt a bit sorry they had missed the wedding they were supposed to go to, and if I’d have spoken to them I would have said they could stay anyway!

    It looks amazing.

    At our wedding what went wrong?

    Wrong flowers (but they were fake and arrived six months in advance so we changed the colour scheme to match, and my cousin measured Irn Bru bottles to see if they would work as vases so we sent back the pricey and now too small vases and bought a crate of Irn Bru, drank it and then used the glass bottles as vases, as well as some beautiful vintage ones).

    My uncle forgot his trousers so my cousin had to bring them. This led to me and my dad in the taxi (which was late as he was getting it washed for the photos) getting a call from my uncle saying he had his trousers and was going to go to a pub to change, and my dad explaining that no he had to change at the venue, and he could have a pint there).

    As I suspected the venue got royal blue and navy blue mixed up. It was cool, the royal blue matched the Irn Bru bottles so it all worked out.

    My dress split RIGHT up the back. My cousin’s poor daughter was so sad and wanted to fix it for me, but she was seven and not great with needlecraft. Me though? Did. Not. Care.

    Four people just didn’t show up. No RSVP, just did not come.

    What went right?

    We got married. I bounced up the aisle. My uncle did have trousers. My cousins from England attempted the ceilidh which was not called and was a bit of a hilarious free for all.

    I dragged my friend Roman onto the dance floor when Crazy In Love was playing as that was totally our jam at uni and he stayed there for the rest of the night. M was on the dancefloor all night and kept being held up. One of M’s friends from school’s kilt nearly fell off. At one point someone was alone on the dancefloor dancing with a wine bottle. M’s dad’s friends who came as they were letting M’s dad stay with them gave us an amazing gift and were the perfect wedding guests, right down to crying while telling me how happy they were for us. Most of my favourite people got into one room and danced and hugged and promised to support our marriage and were all kinds of ace. They threw confetti from the balcony and chucked the origami stars my friend made for the day down the tops of other guests. We all did the weird ring dance thing to 500 Miles. I fell to the floor as I was so danced out. Right this is a ramble.

    Thanks Amy. Your wedding is just beautiful. All the photos look amazing. It sounds like it was right, and you two are so lovely together and you made me remember our day in the messy wonder that it had. I loved that day. Could not get enough of it. Thanks for reminding me. :)

    Sounds like an amazing success of a wedding! And a great reminder to future brides that things will go wrong on the day, and you’ll still have a wonderful time and memories you’ll treasure forever.

    The registrar called me the wrong name during our vows, which was both awful and brilliant simultaneously. She accidentally called me by my middle name, which happens to be my husband’s ex’s name. He just went on as normal: inserting the correct name and giving me a little wink. Finally she saw the tears streaming down my face as I tried to hold in my laughter and realized she’d made a mistake.

    Ok, so this line just brought a tear to my eye…

    “My conclusion – things don’t matter, people do – surround yourself with good ones.”

    That is so totally right and not just in relation to weddings, it is my new motto for life in general!!

    Five years on I honestly don’t remember many things going wrong at our wedding. The hairdresser took forever and I was somewhere between 20-30 minutes late for the ceremony (depending on who you talk to, I say 20!!).

    One person who had RSVPd to say no just turned up, but the venue were totally unflappable and just laid an extra place.

    That’s really all I can remember. I’m sure lots of little things didn’t go quite to plan but years later the things I remember are getting married, being surrounded by family and friends, and everyone having fun.

    And anyway, however things happened it was our day and I wouldnt change it for anything now.

      Four years on that’s just what I was thinking, not really remembering anything going wrong, I’m sure things did & it wasn’t perfect, just the great emotional memories.
      Good wedding report Amy – thank you for sharing.

    On my wedding day the weather was horrendous – gale force winds and pouring rain. And my dad stood on my dress as we were leaving for the church- big footprint on the train, thanks Dad!

    But apart from that I don’t think there was anything too bad, or maybe I’ve just blanked it out if there was!

  7. Posted August 13, 2013 at 10:03 am | Permalink

    What went wrong at my wedding seems like a proper list of petty whinges – in comparison to all the things that actually could have gone wrong.

    - the cake was half hour late (we wouldn’t have noticed except our wedding planner told me)
    - we were told all the cake would be cut and put out with the coffee after dinner. It wasn’t so no one ate it and we had TONS left.
    - my brother who was playing DJ started playing our first dance halfway through.
    - the chips on the evening buffet were cold.
    - our photos were a bit rubbish BUT our video is amazing so swings and roundabouts!
    - my dress wouldn’t stay hitched up in the evening so people kept standing on it.

    things that went right.
    - Everything.
    - Everyone had an amazing time. I had an amazing time. When I think about it all I just want to cry. Big fat happy smiling tears.

    Im so pleased you had a great day Amy, your pictures are lovely and the joy coming from your face in all of them is breathtaking.

    p.s I love Beccas story about guests going to the wrong wedding. Hilarious. xx

  8. Posted August 13, 2013 at 10:12 am | Permalink

    I can fully attest that your wedding was wonderful Amy! Screw the things that went wrong, they made your wedding yours.

    Things that went wrong at my wedding:
    I slept for just 2 hours, and felt an actual zombie
    I had two MASSIVE spots on my face
    I chipped my nail polish
    I put a hole in my dress as I walked up the aisle
    We dropped the rings mid-vows
    It chucked it down and my great-aunt fell over in the mud
    None of the groom’s grandparents showed up. No notice, they RSVP’d that they were and then just never appeared without telling us.

    But it was the best day ever. And anything going wrong still can’t beat that. x

      Bloody hell….his grandparents didn’t show up? I was pretty stingy and had three relatives I was convinced wouldn’t show so spoke to the caterers and they said not to have them and then we could add them in later if we needed to. They ended up showing up, drinking all the free booze, not even buying us a card, eating and then just leaving.

      I ACTUALLY have a picture of them when I’m missing ones of relatives I actually like.

      Now showing up is the rudest thing ever (unless you are ill or something)

  9. Posted August 13, 2013 at 10:16 am | Permalink

    Such a good post and so true. It’s so difficult to believe before the day that it won’t matter if things are not 100% perfect so long as you are surrounded by your friends and family and they are having a good time.

    We were lucky – our day went pretty smoothly, except for one of the ushers wearing the groom’s buttonhole (nobody noticed) and a little bit of rain. What I hadn’t appreciated was that I wouldn’t notice all the things that went right and which we agonised over beforehand – the flowers, the scented candles, the table settings – because I was far too busy having an AWESOME time.

      I completely agree. I left all of my Jo Malone stuff in the boot of the car, along with the limited DIY I made after a last minute panic that not having it would make me a crap bride. Probably for the best that I left it in the car….it was pretty rubbish.

    Great post – it shows nervous pre-brides that things go wrong and it never spoils the day!

    For me the wrong things:
    I didn’t like the way I looked (still a bit of an issue but I take a deep breath and force perspective down my throat) and so I don’t like the photos
    The registrar told my mum to walk me up the aisle on the wrong side so my husband nearly ended up marrying my mother instead!
    A toddler shouted “I’m never getting married” during the ceremony – not the feeling I wanted to inspire in people!
    We were so crammed in on top table I could only use one hand to eat with as I had to angle my body away from the table
    One table collapsed – with flower, wine glasses etc. It was caught before everything hit the floor.
    My sister-in-law got very drunk and erm, feisty
    My shoes KILLED me. Seriously – I couldn’t walk without pain for 3 weeks afterwards.
    My (very expensive) cake was disappointing looking
    There was a fog reminscent of American Werewolf
    My bridesmaids had to leave early (being mothers of small children)
    We couldn’t get my wedding ring on – brute force was required!

    But.

    The flowers were beautiful, the food was marvellous, the wine was fabulous, the ceilidh was hilarious, my niece was adorable, everyone was SO happy for us – and most of the people we loved were there. And. And, dear Reader, I married him!

      You should rent that toddler out – they sound brilliant! Ha!

        I asked my bridesmaid if she wanted to get married and be happy and have a dress like mine and she said:

        “Becca I already have a dress that I like a lot thank you” and proceeded to spend the day with her lace overlay over her head.

      I didn’t like the way I looked either, and cringe slightly when I look back at photos, so I can empathize with that!

        I got married last weekend & having seen the photos so far really don’t like the way I looked – I had asked the hairdresser to fix my hair 3 times & in the end just had to leave so we weren’t late. But you know what, no one else noticed – my veil covered the worst of it & the only thing people have commented on I how smiley we both were. Job’s a good ‘un x

Fancy moaning about that! We had someone moan that the DJ wouldn’t play a particular track and my husband said “This isn’t about you, this is our day” and they backed right down.

    At my wedding (2 years ago today, in fact!), the generator blew so our expensive toilets didn’t work and dinner was almost cancelled. And a firework almost landed on my sleeping 1 year old niece. And the napkins that I spent about 10 hours looking for online go forgotten.

    But, it was magical. And I got married, which was awesome.

    Isn’t it always the way you’re in a bloody all day meeting when you’ve got something on AOW!

    It’s wonderful to hear all your stories too, and the agreement that everything was perfect despite all the problems :)

  16. Posted August 13, 2013 at 5:45 pm | Permalink

    This post is ace.

    It is always the way when you are preparing to get married – people tell you things will go wrong but that you won’t notice – I found that I did notice but didn’t care, and I care even less now, as others have said the main overwhelming memory from ours was that it was brilliant and we got married and everyone got drunk and danced loads and we got married.

    But a few things did go wrong (I have had to rack my brain for these)…

    After saying we could have access to the venue all afternoon the day before to bring things and set up, they changed their minds and gave us half an hour at the end of the day, and the venue manager didn’t turn up for 20 minutes of that half an hour so I thought I was going to have to tell a kitchen porter everything about my ‘vision’ for the tables/decorations etc

    I left my list to end all lists at home on the morning of the wedding

    My dad left his jacket over the postcards we had lovingly stamped for people to use as our guest book, so no one knew they were there and we therefore don’t have a guest book. Every time I asked him to move his jacket he apologised, moved it, then forgot and moved it straight back again

    Mr W forgot to put drinks tokens in envelopes for some of his evening guests so they didn’t get their welcome drink

    The bar ran out of white and rose wine (I think this is a testament to our friends, rather than bad planning on the part of the bar)

    NONE of these things mattered at all. It was fantastic.

    Ah, I love this. Its so true, all the bad things seem to just fade away. Things that went wrong (but didn’t really matter):

    My hair was just bad. Partly the hairdresser was rubbish, partly one bridesmaid made a massive fuss about her hair meaning I ended up with only about 15 mins to get it done at the end of the morning, partly my hair is just a bit rubbish. It annoys me when i see the photos – but it probably is an accurate reflection of how my hair looks normally!

    It rained, alot. It was Northumberland in July, I guess I should have known! And the doors into the church were glass so I had to try and dry out and make myself presentable with the whole wedding peering round at me. Note for guests – don’t look at the bride until she’s ready!

    I half fell over into a muddy puddle whilst trying to sit on a swing to recreate my favourite film The Slipper and the Rose (just me??!!). Luckily the photographer grabbed me and prevented a full arse in mud incident. My dad then told the whole wedding in his speech. On the plus side, turned out my dress was wipe clean – most awesome fabric ever!

    My uncle brought a random woman to the wedding without notice (and he wasn’t even sleeping with her!).

    My inlaws leaving the reception to go and watch the golf on tv. I’m not kidding. And my bridesmaid leaving during the meal (even though her mother and husband were there with a room upstairs to look after her kids), taking off her hair and make-up, changing into casual clothes, and then only coming back for 10 minutes in the evening.

    The vicar having to fly to america the week before the wedding, flying back the night before, jetlagged, and forgetting to fill out the marriage certificate. he did send it to us later!
    The dress shop at the last minute put some weird bra cups in my dress so it stuck out from my chest in a weird way. Oh and when I went to put my dress up for the dancing my sister discovered I’d left the labels on!

    But if you asked my husband he’s be oblivious to all of this and just say it was the most amazing day ever. And he’s right. Best things?

    The venue staff moving our crazy golf course INSIDE into the reception room so we could still play when it was raining.

    My dad’s happy face when at 3am during the Irish singsong my husband and his friends played a northern folk song they’d learnt just for him.

    My dad going to get a glass and walking in on the singer from the band getting changed in a cupboard. Awkward!

    Dancing all night with all my favourite people – including my parents who literally ran onto the dancefloor when the scissor sisters came on!

    Playing rounders on the beach the next day – and never being out because I was the bride!

    The cheese.

    Having the most amazing man in the world chose me to be his forever. The rest is just fluff.

    Oh I love this post and all the comments – it’s really made me laugh, thanks for sharing everyone :)
    Just makes one realise how many zillions of things do go wrong and despite this, the sting does lesson and fade, and eventually none of them will matter. This should be compulsory reading for any bride to be in that last week of panic mode!

    What went wrong at ours:

    I had almost no sleep thanks to sleeping in parents cottage at the B&B which had full security light beamining into the room all night long. Made it hard to cope with the other what went wrongs.

    Hated my hair and makeup and especially the dress. Still cant love the photos.

    The vicar made us say different vows to eachother. I had to promiise to honour with my body! And he talked about children which we’d specifically asked him not to.

    The vicar asked everyone for his envelope, including out guests while we were being congratulated, the minute the ceremony was finished.

    Husband left out paragraph on me out of his speech, and only mentioen that Id done all the organising!

    There was a tropical cyclone and the venue flooded, the fairy lights blew and rain dripped from the leaking roof into the main tables food. Actually into my plate. We had to shift all the tables together to get out the way of the leaking roof and the rain pooled behind us wafting the smell of wet concrete all night long.

    The photographers wife/assistant was a first class bitch who stressed out my laid-back husband, made the photo shoot incredibly stressful which showed up in said photos, upset loads of our guests and told our guests that she wanted to punch my husband.

    No one signed the guest book.

    My dress kept falling down all day and during the first dance I had a spectacular dress malfunction flashing my bra at everyone, forever captured on video and photos (although no-one said they noticed, I did.) Spent the whole first dance shuffeled up againsed husbands chest wanting to die of shame and cry with disappointment.

    DJ didnt play correct second song and cleared the dancedfloor with “tears in heaven” instead of “your my first my last my everything.” Killed the vibe, somewhat.

    Couldnt dance in dress and had to take it off after being spectacularly tripped up on dancefloor whilst not even drunk. Did not have anything nice to change into for remainder of wedding apart from cheap cotton unironed sundress from that morning.

    Things that went right:

    My mum recovered from her pain cycle miraculously and was well enough to enjoy herself.
    The venue looked awesome.
    The flowers were stunning and had fragrance all day.
    My parents had an absolute ball with my friends, were on the dancefloor all night and Dad got specatuclarly pissed.
    We had a gay off betweeen our 2 gay couples who disliked eachother on sight and both couples said of the other “those are the kind of gays that give us a bad name”. It resulted in unbelivable dancing and hilarious comments.
    The storm made for a fantastic atmosphere and a bazinga panoramic photo
    Everyone had an awesome time, we had so many people travel from all over the world to be with us.
    The food and wine was superb
    My bridesmaids looked stunning,
    InLaws in NZ miraculously managed to view whole ceremony on skype through tablet without planning despite almost on existant reception at venue
    Danceflor was so full we paid for the Dj to play another hour till the venue closed
    I felt my grandparents were with me all day when 2 swallows flew alongside the car as I arrived at the venue to get ready.
    the video is lovely and brings back so many wonderful memories, though i dont love the photos of me they are excellent.
    None of the what went wrongs matter in the least anymore.

    I got marreid to my favourite person in the world, and I am still over the moon to be married to him.

      SURELY every wedding should have a gay-off?! Only wish I’d had one at mine!

    Despite ‘what went wrong’ it sounds like you had a fabulous day! I’ll have been married 2 years in march and I actually cannot remember anything that went wrong. The whole day is a lovely haze of wonderfulness in my memory. Perhaps the haze has something to do with the drink!
    One thing I can’t complain about at our wedding is our guests. Every single one was fantastic! I’m assuming your husband has a friend you aren’t keen on? I can’t imagine inviting somebody you dislike so strongly about that you wouldn’t want them in the photos. Friend of my hubby or not I’m afraid I would have had to put my foot down and cross him off the guest list!
