When it came time for getting ready, I really felt like the movies had severely lied about what it’s supposed to be like. Even with all the gorgeous music videos I’ve watched of real brides’ wedding days. Sweet snippets of brides and grooms interacting with their family so endearingly, bridesmaids laughing together while causing the bride to sneak a smile. From my own personal perspective, this couldn’t have felt any farther from the truth. The only person who really talked to me at all was my hair stylist.
My parents were busy with getting things reported to the house owners’ agent and it really felt like my bridesmaids could have cared less if I was there or not. It felt like they only started caring when I stopped. However, if my wedding photos were any sort of proof to how I was feeling, you’d never believe it. I do tend to dramafy things more in my mind, but I’m totally glad my wedding photos did not reflect that.
