Things that went wrong at my wedding (or other wedding related event)

No wedding is perfect and while some of those mistakes are quickly forgotten, others really can get under your skin. I thought it would be fun to vent on what went wrong whether it made you laugh, cry, or angry.
There are only 3 things I can think of that really got under my skin.
First of all my manipulative MIL showed up for our rehearsal right when we finished rehearsing (20 minutes late) and had the nerve to ask why I didn't tell her we were starting. A month earlier she asked me when the rehearsal was so she could plan the dinner accordingly. The reason she was late because she cannot manage her time appropriately and she was still decorating the venue for the rehearsal dinner. She was just getting in the shower when the rehearsal started. Being late is something that I consider disrespectful. It shows you do not care enough about someone else to make it there when you are supposed to be.
Second, people showed up uninvited. My now BIL's little friend decided to show up to our wedding uninvited. He had mentioned something about coming before the wedding and I thought my BIL had explained to him that we wasn't invited. The guy sat at the head table in the seat that my husband was supposed to sit at. Also one of my husband's cousins brought their kid which no kids were invited, and he ate a ton of food. (I didnt invite kids because it would have made my guest like at like 500, not because I dont like kids)
Last, I had put reserved for the wedding party signs on 3 round tables (including the head table) so my wedding party had a central place to sit (No seat assignments, had a cocktail reception). My Husband's aunt decided that not enough people were sitting there and took the signs down.
Okay, feels good to vent.
I know my wedding was a few months ago and I should be over these little things but I guess all the little things can add up especially when they have things adding on top of them since the wedding.
