Almost every bride has a regret or two from their wedding day that they would change if they could have a redo. This is not to say that you can’t have an amazing wedding, but it’ll take some extra care to ensure that your day is one of the perfect weddings. Learning from past brides mistakes can help you avoid those issues and give you the best chance of having your dream wedding. Here are some common regrets brides have that you’ll want to avoid:
Not Listing Special Photo Shots
Photographers might give you a spreadsheet to list out special shots that you want taken. You need to make sure that you list everything you want because if it isn’t listed, you probably won’t get the photo. They can’t read your mind if you want a photo of everyone at the wedding or an extended family photo. List every kind of photo you can think of so you and your soon-to-be husband have all of those memories to look back on.
Hiring People You Have a Bad Feeling About
One bride’s mother had a friend she wanted to do the day-of coordinating. The bride has a bad feeling about it but didn’t hire a professional because she trusted her mom. She regretted it because the person didn’t show up. Luckily, everyone helped with the setup and they enjoyed the rest of the day.
Being too Frugal
If you want quality wedding photos and a great video, you are going to have to pay for it. Finding someone that is just starting out and is cheap, might not be the best option for such a special occasion. The photos might be overly saturated and the editing of the video might not be up to par.
Not Getting a Wedding Video
Even if you can’t think of anyone that you would invite over to watch the wedding video, you and your husband will want to watch it. If you have kids, they will probably want to see how your lives together started. It also allows for you to see a lot of the behind the scenes footage!
Not Hiring a Wedding Planner
Wedding planners keep everything organized and scheduled for you. If you have trouble being organized and on time, you need a coordinator so everything goes off without a hitch! This one bride was late to her wedding and hates her dress and pictures. The coordinator can help you with all of these issues and allow you to have as little stress as possible.
Not Keeping Track of the Car Keys
If your or your groom’s family are pranksters, keep track of the car keys! If they don’t have the keys, they can only “decorate” the outside of your car. As long as you can get inside, you can drive and get the car washed which isn’t a big deal. If they do get the keys, you may end up with a car full of shredded paper, balloons, silly string and/or more!
Try your best to prepare for these issues and do whatever is best for you and your soon-to-be husband. Keep an eye out for a continuation of this blog with more regrets to avo
