Lets Have a Little Fun!

Today I saw a post on one of the blogs I read about a bride who started the website Take My Dress to help give away her unworn, unseen wedding dress!! It arrived to her, still needing alterations, 3 DAYS before her wedding. She found another dress for the wedding, but was too upset with the first one to even open up the crushed box holding her unused dream dress.

If you want to enter a contest to win her dream dress (and bring some closure for her) go to: http://www.takemydress.com/

This got me thinking, what wedding tragedies are *you* dealing with? Time to vent ladies!

I'll start off, with a tale from the day my little sister got married. We were totally on time, and things were going really really well. Until.....we went to the stylist. We found out later he may have been, um, under an influence of some sort. He did and redid and redid her hair like 5 times! Right about the time we'd say "it's perfect!"...he'd start pulling out all the pins! Then it was time to do my hair....and after several tries he decided I had too much hair. I agreed to let him cut it (chop chop chop) just to get out of the salon on time!

Luckily the rest of the day went beautifully!!

(Here's one of my snap shots of the day...I have a photo where you can see how agitated she was, but she'd KILL me, lol. She was, by no means, a bridezilla; this was just an extreme situation.)

Anyone (current or former bride, photographers, friends, anyone) have a funny-now-but-not-at-the-time story to share? :)
