My name is Cristal. I am 24 years old and am an appraisal coordinator here in Milwaukee, WI. I have been planning my wedding day since the day I was born and have always envisioned it being a huge wedding with lots of friends and family and most importantly with me in a fabulous dress. Over the years I may have changed a few details here and there of what I thought would be perfect to include in my wedding; like what the first song would be and what the colors would be, but the one thing that stayed true was that I would be the focus of everyone’s attention, and that my wedding day would be no matter what, the best day of my life.
When you first get engaged you think that planning a wedding for real will be the easiest and most fun thing you could possibly do….but then you and your fiance don’t agree on which colors to choose, or you don’t want to get chair covers because you think they look tacky, but hate the price tag that comes with the Chiavari chairs that you really adore. It’s all the little details like whether to spend the extra money on matching table number holders or what font to print the programs in that just end up driving you and everyone around you insane. At the end of the day though, once all the details are figured out (or pushed aside for no one to see) the small stuff doesn’t matter. Everything you stressed and fought about all dwindles and blurs together and in those 24 hours no one even notices any of that…Seriously, all they notice is you-the bride and groom.
So when people ask did everything go right on your wedding day? Was it perfect? No. Nothing went right, nothing went as planned, and the day went too fast to even try to fix the mistakes. My wedding day and everything leading up to it was everything but perfect-it was a chaotic mess, and you can imagine that with the Bridezillas film crew stress and emotions were multiplied by 1,000,000 if not more. But at the end of the day my wedding consisted of me walking down that aisle to the man I love and adore…the man who respects, appreciates, and accepts me for the woman I am.
