35. Not downloading my slideshow to a flash drive. I made it in Google Slides and didn’t realize how bad the internet connection was in the reception area. It wasn’t a big deal all things considered, but I spent a lot of time scanning in pictures and just posting it on Facebook was kind of disappointing.
36. Rehearsal dinner – I didn’t even want one at all as we were doing a 15 minute ceremony and it just seemed like an antiquated waste of time and money. Wife wanted to invite the extended family and make a party of it. I caved, and then she claimed she was too busy to plan it and I had to organize everything. It wasn’t what she had in her head and she was just as upset as she would have been if I had put my foot down and said no dinner at all. MIL also invited 6 extra people day of because they wound up coming in a day earlier than they had planned. We ran out of space and everyone was cramped and miserable. Complete waste of $1500 and countless hours organizing.
