Everyone gives you advice about how your wedding day will go down – how it’s basically a blur or maybe, to wear comfortable shoes since it’s a LONG day, but here are 5 things nobody tells you about your wedding day.
1. You will feel calm…like really calm.
My stress level went up and down as the 15 months passed from our engagement to the wedding but for some reason I woke up the day of my wedding calm. Absolutely calm. It was alright if I forgot to plan or do a small detail for the day because the day was here and I couldn’t do anything about it.
2. You won’t spend much time talking to the person you just married.
Between photographs, talking with guests and eating you will say about 10 words in the 10 hours that you are together.
3. Things will go wrong.
No amount of planning can prevent something from going wrong. Don’t worry about it though because most likely your guests won’t notice. And if they do, who cares? The most important part is your married!
4. You may not have a single memory of the day.
It took about 8 months after the wedding to have even more than one memory of our entire day. Don’t worry about it. Some things will come back, just keep taking a look at your wedding photos and have people tell you stories about the day!
5. You might not actually see (or get to talk to) every guest.
We had grand intentions of a receiving line but it didn’t happen. We just went around to the tables before dinner to hopefully greet every single guest, but to be honest with you, I’m not sure I talked to everyone and that kills me, but what’s done is done.
So tell me, was there something nobody told you about your wedding day?
