    • Wedding: January 2019

    I would’ve changed my photographer, she did a great job, I just think she could’ve been better. But when every other vendor was a 100/100 it’s pretty nit picky to call her like a 90/100. I also would’ve invited a few different friends over a few friendships that had grown apart.

    • Wedding: September 2015

    my backyard wedding was planned within a week, i regret not going out of my way to invite my uncle and his whole troop of family. he lives in the same town and was sad he didnt get an invite. i honeslty didnt want a weeding but my mother in law stated she was throwing a partyy with or without me. so i just showed up i had no say nor did i want one. so i understood why no on e called him.

    if i ever have another wedding i hope he gets to see it and go

    LadyNyx :  I really wish we’d have waited another month until summertime to have our wedding. We got a huge spring blizzard the day before our wedding, and pretty much all our out of town guests’ flights were cancelled. We were missing about 30 people. Plus we were planning on a beautiful outdoor ceremony and that got moved inside into the reception hall as well. Ugh lol

    LadyNyx :  it doesn’t weigh on my mind, but I’d have hired a better photographer (and gotten some props for rain) and gotten my dress properly fitted.  And it’d have been nice if my husband hadn’t broken his left pinkie the week before…

    Our photographer has been a pain to work with. At this point we’ve been married longer than we were engaged and still waiting on stuff. The reception venue wasn’t easy either but not sure I’d have changed it. Just needed to suck it up. 

    I’d have invited fewer people. I don’t think they made a huge difference to the enjoyment of the day and I couldn’t speak to everyone anyway.

    • Wedding: September 2019 - City, State

    LadyNyx :  I’m not even married yet, getting married in September, yet I have already told people that if I could go back a little in time I would NOT have bridesmaids I would only have a maid of honor. It’s like pulling teeth to get any of them to do anything, one has already backed out, and one is now pregnant ( I planned to have a total of 4 with one maid of honor). It just seems like an added stress trying to deal with them that I really don’t need or want right now. I guess it boils down to them not seeing my wedding as a priority like I do, which I guess some could say is natural but I really wish I could have just avoided this decision.

    So many things were not ideal, didn’t even like my dress, but I wouldn’t change a thing. It was perfectly imperfect.

    I didn’t love my hair by the middle/end of the night, but it was a very hot and humid day so I am not sure I could have done anything to change it. I do wish I would have done some mirror checks during photos as there was one really annoying strand that was sticking out in some – it’s not really noticeable to anyone but me, though.

    MsJ2018 :  [Comment moderated for TOS violation] Your bridesmaids don’t have to do anything but get the dress and show up on the day of the wedding.  No one is going to make someone elses wedding their priority and for you to expect them to do so is downright self centered.

    • Wedding: August 2012 - Iowa

    I would’ve hired a band instead of a dj, made sure my dress was bustled correctly (it annoys me so much that in all the post wedding pics it’s bustled wrong; it was soooo pretty bustled correctly!), and chilled out. I got a little bridezilla-ey before the ceremony, but the rest of the day was great.

    • Wedding: October 2017

    LadyNyx :  I wish we had done a small wedding, no bridal party, family only guest list, in a beautiful location. No need for the giant wedding we had that people left early from.

    I regret spending so much money and wish we had’ve eloped or had a family only wedding.
