Actually didn't enjoy my own wedding much. Naturally refused to do the obvious thing and didn't do it in a church or a hotel and booked an originals band rather than a wedding band and made mixtapes rather than having a DJ blah blah blah. I think people enjoyed it, but all the organising turned out to be pretty stressful for both of us
Similar. We had a bluesy cover band to ease everyone in (though they played a couple of Sabbath songs with herself singing in her wedding dress, to keep her dad happy) and then our mates bands. I think she may have gotten paid as a promoter for it. The spotify playlist remains the go-to playlist to this day. Biggest takings the pubs tills ever had, we're very proud of that.
I just got fed up of being asked to spend a week in Spain or somewhere for this persons wedding or that persons wedding. And I didn't want anyone feeling bad for not being able to come. We're going to the pub, come if you can. I genuinely understand if you can't. So I thought it'd be as stressless as possible. Nah, it was stressful AF.
She did 99% of the work, but it was really stressful for both of us. I wasn't helping, and I wasn't allowed help. When the day actually came I just wanted to get through it and get on with things. Horrible really.
