It seems a lot of people end up regretting different aspects of their weddings.. sometimes it’s small stuff like a decor or music choice, but others it’s a big thing like who you had in your wedding party or inviting certain guests.
Do all us brides-to-be a favour and share the dirty deets! haha

Nothing that really matters in the long run. Looking back we’d have hired a better photographer – ours would have done well if the weather had been better, but taking photos indoors on a rainy day or after dark was not her forte. I’d have hemmed my dress higher so my crinoline (orange) always showed a bit. Maybe have had my bouquet a bit more ‘organic’ looking. Nothing that makes or breaks the day for sure. The worst thing was that we were sent the wrong chairs, so they looked cheap, but that wasn’t our fault – I checked on it twice – and we got refunded so whatever. And the only other thing was uncontrollable – because the weather was cruddy on and off, we couldn’t get up into the aspens for photos, which I had really wanted to do. We still got some gorgeous desert shots.
I have a feeling that because I didn’t get married until I was 35, I had plenty of time to see where other people went wrong and really choose what I wanted for myself, rather than be swayed by what was trendy or think I needed to make myself look good for others. My ideas about my wedding changed a LOT over the years and settled on casual bbq with great scenery and minimal decor because it wasn’t needed.

I regret not getting a videographer because most of the day was a blur. I also regret not taking time to really enjoy our amazing food. I had bites here and there, but I felt like a bad host if I wasn’t mingling. In hindsight that’s silly. Enjoy your food!

that i didn’t eat during speeches. that was my time to eat. i thought it would be rude to chew while they were looking at us. after speeches, i got up for a few minutes and when i came back to my table, they took my food away.

We will both be about to turn 35 when our wedding happens. It’s nice being able to learn from everyone else’s experiences! haha
