There is a substantial amount of planning that goes into weddings, but even with all that planning something is always missed. There are always regrets when the wedding is all said and done. Here are some of the biggest regrets that brides and grooms have after their weddings.
Not having that one extra person in the bridal party
Not having enough time at the reception
Not wearing comfortable shoes
Not hiring a professional videographer
Not getting the music right
Not waiting a day or two before leaving for your honeymoon
The number of people you have in your bridal party is up to you, but don’t leave that one person out because you want there to be an even number or because you don’t want it to look to crowded up at the altar. Brides and grooms make this mistake constantly. It’s a regret that not only affects you but also the person who is left out.
The wedding day flies by for the bride and groom. They are constantly being asked to take a picture with someone and going from task to task. If you’ve scheduled an ending time for your reception but you haven’t had the time to go around and spend some time with your guests, just extend it a little longer. A good number of your guests have traveled a long way to attend your wedding so make it worth while for them.
There is nothing worse than having to put a smile on your face when your feet are aching. Try wearing your shoes before the wedding to break them in, or prepare for the worst – put band-aids on your heals ahead of time to keep your shoes from rubbing. The little extra time it takes is worth it.
There are so many precious moments to capture at your wedding, and while photos can capture some of that, a video will give you the whole story. It’s something you can watch over and over again to relive your wedding day. And since your wedding day goes by in a flash, a video will let you see things you didn’t see the first time.
DJ’s are a great way to have good music playing at your wedding, but sometimes they play a song that you can’t stand or even repeat ones that have already played. To make sure that doesn’t happen, make a list of must-have songs, and a list of no-play songs. That way you’ll get everything you want with the music. If you’re on a tight budget ask an acquaintance if they’d be willing to run a playlist you made off your computer. You could even pay them, and it would be a mere fraction of the cost of hiring a DJ.
Weddings are exhausting, and getting up at 5am to catch a flight is not what you want to do they day after your wedding. Waiting a little bit allows you to relax and reminisce about the day before. It can be a much needed break, especially after all the stress of planning.
Overall, there are a lot of regrets that come about when you plan a wedding, but don’t let these ones happen.
