First of all - a big thank you to everyone here who has helped with my wedding questions while I was planning my big day. Your advice and support has been invaluable smile.gif

The good...
- I loved having 7 BMs and a big bridal party as it gave DH and I confidence against a 400+ guest wedding. All the problems I had earlier with some of my BMs dissipated on the day as they were all lovely and supportive, with the exception of one, who I didn't have to worry about because the rest of the girls sat on her for it.
- The church ceremony was mine and DH's favourite part of the day and our only regret is that we wished we had videographed it because it went by so beautifully. One of the girls at my church sang my favourite hymn so angelicly she had many of the guests in tears.
- I'm really glad we had our pre wedding shots three weeks earlier, on a a sunny day, as that comforted us with the actual wedding day being rainy.

The bad...
- The rain.... it rained and rained and didn't stop raining except for a few hours during the location photo shoot when the sun came out for a little (which is all I needed really).
- One of my BMs came 2 hrs late to the hair and makeup, and then 2 hrs late for the reception (thank goodness I had 7 BMs, couldn't rely on this one!). She spent more time on her hair and makeup than even me (and the Hair & MUA charged me $200 more for the extra time spent on her, which she is ignorant of to this day) and she didn't even give me a wedding present after I had paid for her dress, shoes, EVERYTHING including all the flower girl stuff (besides the FG dress) for her daughter. Her daughter was better behaved on the day than she was and loved being a flower girl.
- DH and I hardly got to eat any food or drink any alcohol as everytime we sat down to eat, someone would come by and congratulate us and we had to chat for a bit or were requested to take photos...

So here are the pics. It's my first time posting pics so please bear with me...

Okay, it's not letting me post anymore pictures... keeps on saying something like 'sorry you cannot more post pictures than you are allowed'.. what do I do now?

My background nationality is Cambodian, although it looks quite similar to Thai and Indian (from which Cambodian and Thai culture is derived from).

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments!

You look gorgeous, your wedding looked gorgeous. You must be so pleased! Each photo shows how happy you both are!

And it's good luck for it to rain on your wedding day - it means there'll be no tears in the marriage smile.gif

Congratulations smile.gif

Congratulations! You two look so happy! I'm glad it all came together in the end despite the hurdles you had with one of your BMs. I love the outfit changes! Three in total? Right?
