Listography – Wedding Day Revisited

So this week the lovely Kate over at asked what we’d change about our wedding day. Not much actually. I absolutely LOVED my wedding day. It rocked. From dawn to dusk and beyond. I’d do it again in a heart beat.

But if I was going to do it all again, I’d give myself some advice…

1. Don’t be so bl**dy tight and buy the negatives off the photographer straight away. Waiting for three years until he’ll just give them to you is no good if he’s nowhere to be found. No digital pictures whatsoever of your wedding is not a good outcome.

2. Have a spare pair of tights/stockings around so that your bridesmaid doesn’t have to give hers to your Mother who forgot to bring any. (Actually, don’t bother, it was very funny at the time.)

3. Don’t lose so much weight stressing out before the big day that your gorgeous dress almost doesn’t fit! You’re only going to wear it once and no, you’re not going to dye it black and cut it down to make an evening dress. It’s going to sit in it’s box reminding you that you were once thin enough to wear it.

4. Think twice about whether it was a good idea to let the Uncles loose on the dance floor. Especially the one who relived Grease with every female guest. Twice.

5. Don’t worry about whether other people are enjoying themselves and just have a ball. It’s your day.

What would you change about your wedding day? Pop a list on your blog and link up over at .

    Ha ha – thanks for that! You’ve reminded me of the next one my list – Don’t let any of your male friends throw granny around the room then drop her in a heap on the floor. I also agree with just letting go and enjoying yourself. Great list. x

    It is a bit of a gloater that one, sometimes a beautiful dress can have such a bad personality, don’t you find?

  • bod for tea

    It was actually the most magical, beautiful day and I would SO do it again, even with the Uncles :D

    good tip about the photos. Am not married but making mental notes should it ever happen!

  • motherventing

    Egad, I totally forgot about the embarrassing uncles. In my case it was uncles, father, father-in-law, brothers and other random male family members!! it shouldn’t be allowed!! :)

    Fun post!! My first wedding (there’s only been two) was sooo stressful! Mostly my mother and his trying to get involved with the planning-ugh. Second time around current hubby and I eloped to a beautiful beach town for a week. We left voicemail messages on our phones stating we’d eloped and inviting friends/family to a reception on our return. We were in our 40′s – maybe wiser by then. I still had the photographer, bouquet, lovely appropriate second-time-around dress. So, married with a honeymoon at the beach. Stress free! Lovely!

  • bod for tea

    *Sigh* can’t believe I don’t have any of them digitally. Will prob just have to scan the photos one of these days and be done with it!

  • bod for tea

    You’re right… but then we wouldn’t have all that fun watching them, would we? *winks*

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had trouble
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
