Our wedding was just two/three days ago and we are so glad to be getting our lives back in order. We had so much fun and help from our friends & family, but being the homebodies we are we're glad to have our house back!
We've talked and decided that we have no regrets, everything went beautifully! I'm told our ceremony video turned out perfectly and I've got the first batch of pictures. There was no fighting amongst my family and I managed to realize that I was marrying my best friend and no one could ruin that.
I wanted to post this so that any women who might be worried their MIL might wear white or doing something else "horrible" would see it and I could tell them that you won't care.
When I saw her before the reception I was so angry, but I got distracted and by the time our reception had started I was just so happy and excited to dance with my husband all night that I didn't care anymore. She/they do it for attention - just don't give it to them.
We took pictures and she was in some of them, but I'd talked with our photographer/best man before the shoot and he made sure she wasn't in any of the ones I really wanted.
Just remember - it's your day, you're marrying the love of your life, and no one can take that away from you - it's what you make it.
