Regardless of how many weddings you've attended or the amount of hours you've spent planning every single little detail, there are just some things you won't learn until you're own wedding day. That might sound scary but we don't mean it to be. All of these things are what makes a wedding day a wedding day. So here's some things we learnt:
Not everything will go perfectly. You won’t care about most of these little hiccups, or to be honest even notice them.
You might forget the odd thing (I didn’t throw my bouquet, eat any of our cake or even see the evening BBQ) there’s just so much going on it's impossible to remember everything. Those things aren’t what make your day and if you’ve managed to forget them they probably weren’t that big a deal to you.
Unless it doesn't have a train at all, people will definitely stand on your dress. It’s just a fact. Sorry.
You probably won’t spend that much time with your new husband or wife, there’s so many people you’ll want to speak with, catch up with that you haven’t seen in ages and you'll be getting pulled in all sorts of directions. This is mainly during the evening reception. However, this made our first dance even more special to me as it was one of the few points we spent together and it felt like it was just the two of us there.
You're going to be absolutely exhausted by the end of the evening. It's a huge day, with emotions running so high and adrenaline coursing through your body. Physically and emotionally I was absolutely shattered when we finally stumbled up to our room at 2am but it didn't really hit me until we got to the airport the next day and it was just the two of us and I looked down at our new rings and all of the emotions of not just the previous day but all two years of planning and stressing and the highs and lows all hit me like a brick wall.
You’ll definitely see things after and think “oh man I wish I did that for my wedding” I literally have this every time we add new decor to our range! I wish we’d had the chiffon chair sashes, blossom trees, our new flower wall, etc. But truly I wouldn’t change a single thing about our day and you just have to accept that new styles will come out after and know that you’re day was beautiful because it was YOUR wedding day, done your way.
