    Overall the wedding was great. I wish that I had done more planning in terms of the timeline on the wedding day. I didn't realize that no one really knew what was going on and what time the photographer was supposed to arrive and when to be ready. My husband asked me on the wedding day whats going on....it was a little annoying because I thought he knew what was going on but I didn't realize I never told him!

     

    Make sure that you just relax on the wedding day and try to enjoy it. Don't let things bring you down. I was annoyed right before the ceremony because one of my bridesmaids forgot her flowers and her boyfriend was going back to the house to get it. He ended up not making it back until almost the end of the ceremony because two of the guests had decided to go get their nails done and were still getting ready, they asked him to wait for them to go to the beach for the ceremony. Shame on me to think that one of them was a good friend. That was all I could think about during the ceremony and afterwards while taking pictures. It basically ruined it for me. 

     

    I wish that we had done a rehearsal so that everyone knew what they were doing. 

    I wish that I didn't have our parents cook for the reception and had an actual reception. I tried to keep costs down so we rented a beach house and our parents cooked, i wished that they could have enjoyed it more instead of cooking.

    I wish that I wasn't so cheap with some of the things (i bought cheaper robes for the girls and wish that I had gotten better quality ones)

     

    I am so glad that I picked my bridesmaids because they were so supportive and easy going. There was no bridesmaid drama at all during the wedding planning process.

    I am glad that I picked my husband! LOL

    I am also very happy with the photographer we picked (Dede Edwards Photography)

    I am glad I picked my wedding dress and diy flowers

    I am happy with the beach house we rented and the location for our wedding (Destin, FL)

    The timing was also good because the weather was perfect.

    I'm happy with the DIY projects that I did (first aid kits, welcome kits, invitations) 

     

    In the end you married the love of your life and that's all that really matters. All the little details and things that may or may not go right will be faint memories because no matter how bad things go you will choose to remember the happy moments and the fact that you are now married.

     

    Good luck to all the bride to be's and thank you to everyone that has helped me and posted templates for everyone to use and share. I admit that I am sad that I am no longer a bride but I will live vicariously through other bride to be's :D

    Congrats

      This thread is so useful and one of my absolute favorites... I think one of my weekend projects will be to read the pages I haven't yet. So many lessons to learn! Thanks everyone for sharing. :)

      It honestly doesn't sound like you need much more!! I'm on the flight right now heading home from my wedding and I can tell you that lugging all my decor down was a pain (although worth it financially) and at the end of the day nobody is going to remember my decor and the man in a speedo helped steal the show when he decided to stand behind us crying! Don't stress the small stuff...the scenery will be so beautiful and the simple petals will have an impact!

      Please, lord, tell me someone got a picture of the crying man in the speedo.

      I know this is a little random for this thread BUT...HELP ME PLEASE :confused: Getting married at Dreams Los Cabos next month and I can't decide what aisle decorations I want (and can afford). Does anyone have suggestions or can tell me what they used or did in that area? Everyone keeps telling me I don't need much since it's so beautiful already but I'm not convinced lol My wedding colors are coral and grey. I have 5 bridesmaids and my fiance has 5 groomsmen. The ladies are wearing long coral dresses and the guys grey suits. Bridesmaids will be holding white bouquets and I will have coral color rose pedals down the aisle. Don't know what else I really need. HELP!

      I like simple, so I don't think you need more either. However, I do like the really tall hurricanes with a floating candle, with a flower stem (like an orchid) in the water. And then you line them down the aisle. I also like the baskets of flowers hanging on the chairs down the aisle.
