Q: Do you have wedding nightmares? Tell us everything.
So my wedding nightmare is actually at my best friend’s wedding, and we both got married around 30 days away from each other, and she got married first. I got married a month later. And I just remember I was sitting there getting my hair done and staring at the maid of honor who still had hair, like, that was just blow dried. And we were, I think, like 2 hours behind when we were supposed to be because was at the time we didn’t know to ask about, how long does hair and makeup take? How many artists do you need for each version? There was like 15 of us getting hair and makeup done. There was no reasonable way that all of us were going to get done in time, but no one thought to ask that question. So I’m staring at the maid of honor, and I’m just like, I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. Because she’s the sister of the bride, right? And there was literally nothing we could do. So she went to the wedding with just a blowout because there literally wasn’t time to do her. And the other thing was that another reason why there wasn’t time to do her is because they saved the bride for last, which you never, ever do again. We didn’t know. So they did the bride last, and so we were already so far behind, they were trying to rush the bride’s hair and makeup to get her finished. They missed their first look. They missed their first look with their dad. And then, of course, the maid of honor doesn’t even have hair done for the wedding. And so there’s so many little things that can be avoided that cause so much stress. My friends ran into their wedding literally. They did, like, a high buy on the way in and then smooch, okay, let’s get married. And that was their first look. And they’re like, we got to go because we’re already super late. And it’s just not a feeling I want for anybody. And it was just a really heart wrenching thing to just watch them be so stressed out. And it’s stuff that’s totally avoidable with the proper planning.
