DH’s younger sister got married this past weekend. Since there are 9 years age difference, and she’s the baby, I was interested to see how she acted at rehearsal and the wedding.
For the most part, I think she actually was very nice about stuff. I was kind of surprised that she insisted that all the bridesmaids wear their hair down; no updos. She originally wanted the junior bridesmaid and flower girl to wear their hair in two french braids, but did eventually decide it was ok to do them differently.
Seeing the behaviors of different brides intrigues me, because I was very easy going about our wedding. I lost track of how many times I said, “I don’t care, do what you think looks best”. I wasn’t disappointed in anything that was done in regards to my response. I didn’t care what dresses the bridesmaids wore, as long as they were comfortable and the same color. My mom did my hair; she was a cosmetologist and so am I, so I told her to have at it and do what she thought would look best. I didn’t care what foods we had at the reception, or who made it. In the end, I was overjoyed with the way our wedding turned out. If I had it to do over again, the only thing I would change is DH’s best man, and only then because of personal issues.
When I really get to thinking about it, I guess I have to say that’s how I am overall. I know people who have to have things put exactly where they belong, and do everything a certain way, but I’m pretty easy going. I just like everyone to get along, and have a good time together.
What kind of bride were you? Does it correlate with how you normal are? Do you regret how you acted? Do you wish you had done things differently?
