Planning your wedding can be a tough journey – to say the least. Brides often rely on the likes of Pinterest and Bridal magazines to gain inspiration on the current trends and themes, and Bridal Forums can be a planning saviour.
Your wedding day is quite possibly one of the most important and memorable days of your life. This comes with an immense amount of pressure for everything to be perfect.
But what would REAL Brides have done differently if they could plan their wedding again?
We asked a selection of past Brides this exact question and put their responses in a blog post for you to relish.
Had a photograph with their nearest and dearest
The day is often such an overwhelming blur that it’s easy to forget to be photographed with the people you love the most. Discuss your requirements with the photographer prior to the wedding and they’ll give you a little nudge on the day to prompt the important shots.
Having a photobooth or disposal cameras on tables make it easy for guests to grab shots together.
Had a wedding video
This is the number one biggest Bridal regret. Having decent photographs is one thing, but a wedding video truly captures the day.
Those that organised a professional to shoot the whole day on film were really glad they had spent the extra money.
Lived in the moment
A lot of Brides become so overwhelmed on their wedding day that they forget to take a step back, breathe and just look at what they’ve created.
It’s your day, so don’t end up annoyed that you didn’t enjoy every minute of it because you were running around making sure everyone is happy.
Hired a Wedding Planner
We couldn’t count the amount of times we’ve heard “I wish I’d had a Wedding Planner”.
Sooo many brides only realise how stressful planning their wedding would be after their big day, and they desperately wish they’d reached out for some help and guidance before it all got too much.
We can be on site for your entire day to ensure everything runs smoothly, as well as helping with your styling and decor.
Taken a spare pair of comfortable shoes
What ruins a night? Sore feet!
Don’t forget that you’ll be wearing your wedding shoes since mid morning. Your feet are bound to throb as the day progresses. Have your Maid of Honour look after some comfy flats for you.
Letting the stress take over
The day will go extremely quickly, so it’s important to make the most of it and truly enjoy every moment.
I think it’s better to accept that there will be minor hiccups on the day. Then you can at least prepare yourself for this.
