I Was A Slacker Bride

I see a ton of tweets, status and blog updates where people are constantly updating on how their wedding planning is going. They post EVERY little detail of what is going on in the different stages of their wedding. I feel like I was the slacker bride that was like eh..lets get married and do shots. 

Here I was a Slacker Bride.

1. I made all of my bridesmaids buy the dresses. #weddingonabudget 

2. The only gift I got my bridesmaids was the shoes and earrings for them to wear. They were super cheap as well. Whoops.

3. We didn't exchange some gift before we got married. I really don't see the point in that. We are getting each other as a gift so why waste $ on a gift to my soon to be husband when I can spend on my honeymoon? 

4. I forgot to provide fans/shade for everyone. We got married outside in the spring time. I didn't think about the sun and it was HOT for once. A few people got sun burnt. #mybad 

5. I didn't research our honeymoon enough. I have never left the country before and wanted to go to a Sandals resort. FYI they are not what they seem on TV. Atleast in Jamaica. Never will I go back. 

6. I kicked my own sister out my time for that.

7. My niece cried on my wedding day so I replaced her with a friends time for anything.

8. Picture time? Right....I married a country guy who hates pictures. We got maybe 3 together besides the ceremony and that is it. 

9. Speaking of pictures, do you think we took engagement pictures? PSH. 

10. Did we post our wedding announcement in the paper for the world to see? Nope.

Honestly though I loved my wedding and I would not change a thing about it. It was perfect and it was our special day. I didn't have pinterest when I got married, there was no cute staged was just me, my husband, family and friends!

Was anyone else a slacker/diva during their wedding?


  1. Oh I love that you did not conform to others thought on what you should do for a wedding and rather used your own brain and did what you wanted to do. I think too much money is typically spent on lavish weddings,where it would be smarter to spend less on the wedding and more in a house per say.

  2. You go girl. Do you and that's all that matters! I'm glad you enjoyed your wedding!

  3. I love that you did your own thing and made it your own without conforming to the 'norm'. You go, girl! :)

  4. I love how you made your wedding about you, not what people expect. You go girl! :)

  5. Aint no body got time fo' that! Good job!

  6. I thought bridesmaids buying their own dresses was protocol? ...Oops

  7. Weddings are about the people in them, not about Pinterest. As long as you're happy with your day, it doesn't matter about the rest.

    P.S. Usually in this day and age, bridesmaids do buy their own dresses. ;)

  8. I hate planning my wedding! been engaged for 3 1/2 months still no venue/date. great to know Im not alone
