Our wedding day. Oc 16, 99. Almost 10 years.... time do go fast when you are having fun.
I think most everyone has a ¨bad story¨ from their wedding. It could be that it was an outside wedding and it rained, or your m.i.l horrible dress. It could be the flowers not coming or arriving late. I don´t, you name it and it has probably happend to somebody. For me it was my hair... bad.... bad.... If you want to hear the story let me tell you...
When Matthew and I got engaged, I didn´t really know much from the States. After all I had only been there once before and for only three months. I could have married in Spain and then go to the States, but for many different reasons (paperwork, christian wedding, money..) it was lots easier to get married in the States. But of course I didn´t know much and Matthew... well, let´s face it, he is a guy, so he didn´t know much at all either. I pretty much handle off everything to my m.i.l who did great I have to say. I arrived in the States 2 months before our wedding because it is the limit time they give you with the fiancee visa (we won´t get into that). Anyhow, we got the invitations right away, the decorations, found the dress right away and didn´t have problems getting it done by the wedding day, bridesmaids set... you know the rest.
But the hair, that was a different story. My m.i.l always got her own hair done and also did my s.i.l, and she didn´t know anyone who could recomend a hairdresser to do my hair. There was a lady that own a hairstylish place in our church so she asked her. She gave her the name of a lady in a place call "The big Teaser".... I am not kidding with the name. I remember my m.i.l telling me the name sounded weird, but I had no idea back then what she meant (not enough english).
To make the story short, I went a few days before the wedding to see if I could schedule a try before the big date, but she was busy, I had a photo and a very simple style. They guy told me she was booked ´till the date but that she would be able to do it no problem.
Wedding date came and after 4 hours and 3 tries she was uncapable.... I just wanted a french bun people!!! Anyway, 2 hours before the wedding and I am off to my m.i.l´s house where the make up lady was waiting for me. I was late of course. I remember driving over the speed limit, crying and pulling the bobby pins off my hair. I was so upset..... I got there and asked to see Matthew. Of course they told me I couldn´t because it was bad luck.... I didn´t care, if I didn´t see him, I was going to be back luck myself :). After seeing him and relaxing I got my make up done and one of the ladies there did a brade. Needless to say I never took my veil off.... :)
Did you have a perfect wedding? What went wrong in yours? I am stressed out again just thinking about it? Am I the only one that was happy once the actual wedding was over?
