    I had a destination wedding on New Year's Day and several guests flew in which was costly. I advised the DJ to do the normal sequence of things, and we did the dollar dance. In retrospect I feel it was tacky, and embarrassed as it wasn't necessary.

    As a bridesmaid at my best friend's wedding, imagine my surprise when she and her newlywed husband both smashed the cake in my face, instead of each others' as everyone expected!

    My wedding was almost perfect. Almost, except my bridesmaids bouquets were so pretty but they must have been old or something because the heads of the flowers and roses kept falling off. We just taped them back together. Omg. And we messed up the sand pouring portion of the ceremony because we didn't get to finish practicing because it started to rain during our practice ceremony (we live in the PNW and it rains a lot, even in July) and finally our cake started falling over before the ceremony and we had to use straws and toothpicks and forks and knives in the back to hold it up. Once we cut it for the cake cutting event, it almost fell over completely. It was a mess and was crooked and awful looking by that point, but it tasted good. But it is definitely a day we will remember and even through all that, we have been together for 6 years and married for 4 years now and still going strong! :) ♡♡♡

    No notable mishaps at the weddings I've attended. Hopefully none will happen for mine!
