Top Four Wedding Regrets — and How to Prevent Them

Top Four Wedding Regrets — and How to Prevent Them

Such a big event as a wedding could turn in so many ways — but when something goes wrong it’s usually too late to make corrections. Here are some of the most common wedding regrets couples have during the big day:

1. Inviting the wrong people

It’s not just about overcrowding your venue and going above capacity, it’s also about having people on the guest list who aren’t close enough to you to be a memorable part of the occasion.

This is often the case when you send out invitations too early, as during the time that elapses some of your close friends can turn into mere acquaintances. Finalize your guest list first before handing out RSVPs!

2. Not liking their style during the wedding

There are so many things to think about during the prep time that some brides and grooms only give a passing thought to how they would look like during the ceremony. Remember, you don’t just have to look good — you should also be comfortable in what you wear.

Schedule at least two trial runs for your fashion before the wedding so you’re sure you have your looks figured out right. You’re the center of attention, after all.

3. Not hiring a better photographer/videographer

It’s only natural that you want these moments to be captured for posterity, and equally natural to just go by friends’ recommendations. But you won’t know the result until it’s all done, too many couples end up disappointed.

It’s okay to go for recommendations, but you should interview your prospective photographer/videographer if they have the requisite experience and equipment for the job. Ask for samples of their previous work, along with references just to make sure.

4. Pre-wedding stress

There are so many things that could go wrong in weddings, and it’s perfectly understandable that you start your wedding day feeling uptight. But doing so could spoil the rest of your ceremony! Many a bride and groom has lost their glow because of hunger or sleeplessness caused by too much stress.

This is why you have to start preparations early, so you can start winding down as the big date approaches. Sleep well, eat a hearty breakfast, calm yourself, and prepare to enjoy the ride!

A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you should do all that you can to get things right. Foresight is always the key, along with learning from the mistakes others have made.
