The things you can't control...

So I am a Mrs. too!! Our wedding was beautiful, amazing, and filled with SO much love - best day of my life hands down :) It was a lot of work - and I feel like I have a lot of perspective in hindsight, some of while I'll post about, but I thought I'd post a list of 10 things (little things) that went wrong - in an attempt to show that (no matter how many time lines, final confirmations, diagrams, meetings, phone calls) you can't plan for/control everything, but hopefully - you'll feel like I do - that despite, and even because of the mistakes, your wedding is going to be the best day ever! So push through the planning, the funks, and don't stress the details!

(Just as an FYI - I didn't even KNOW about many of these things until after the wedding - a tribute to my planners, bridal party, family, and just sheer bliss on the day of the wedding)

1. The limo did not SHOW UP to take us to the ceremony - my brothers girlfriend drove me in my Toyota
2. The tulle under my dress caught on a stake holding the aisle runner down as I walked down the aisle and caused a fantastic ripping sound
3. The trailer (read: classy) port-a-potties backed up into the sink 30 minutes before the end of the reception
4. The band blew a fuse during cocktail hour
5. Gale force winds made our candle ceremony impossible, but funny
6. There were multiple family drama issues (i.e.: who is at which table, whose table got called first to the buffet, etc.)
7. We ran out of glasses - bring on the plastic cups
8. My aunt hijacked our carefully crafted play list for the band
9. My brothers tux vest was the wrong color (this got fixed)
10. The boys and the groom were 40 minutes late to the rehearsal due to a late flight
