Great thread and so many helpful tips!
A lot of good information here, thanks for sharing!
(I mean, I am not happy anyone has regrets, but hopefully it helps to share it)
My wedding events went pretty perfectly (we had events over 3 days), so I really can’t complain. However, my one regret is not getting a more comfortable dress to dance it. I ended up doing this at my reception
NJmeetsBX: I was too excited to walk down the aisle too. I was about halfway down before he even noticed me ( he was giving our ring bearer, his nephew a hug). But I still love the look on his face when he did see me.
randombee: other than the “regret” mentioned above to njmeetsbx, I wish I had spoken up to my photographer about pictures I wanted (on my list) that she never took. I don’t have any pictures of just me and the details of my dress. The group shots she took were great, but not really what I wanted.
Oh, there were also no photos other than family portraits of both Darling Husband and I looking at the camera.
tagging to read later 🙂
My day was perfect, but I still regret one thing: I was just so excited, when I was walking down the aisle with my dad, by all the people staring at me that I completely forgot to even look straight down the aisle at my FI!!!! I’m still haunted that I didn’t get to lock eyes with him as I walked down the aisle. I was just so shocked by seeing all the people there…even tho I invited them all and knew they’d be there! 😉
1. I had a duo of photographers. I asked them to get a picture of my then FI’s face when he saw me walk down the aisle for the first time as we wouldn’t do a first look. Well I didn’t get that picture and it bums me out still.
2. We didn’t get a large group shot of his family and my family. I do wish we had one.
3. The only piece of wedding cake I had was when we cut the cake. It was a delicous cake and it hurts me that I didn’t eat it lol.
4. I forgot about my bouquet toss until almost everyone left. I had DIY a lotto ticket bouquet and I was disappointed I didn’t have anyone remind me of it sooner. So my picture of me tossing the bouquet is with 4 people trying to catch it. Kinda disappointing but whatever.
Following for future reference!
MrsFairyBee: same regret here too 🙁 Because my makeup artist got lost on her way to my apt, it threw the whole schedule off and I ended up 30 minutes late to the church for the ceremony. because I was still in “oh my god I’m so late y’all better haul ass!” mode, I ended up speed walking down the aisle instead of just stopping, taking a deep breath, and walking down slowly. the priest even said it was the fastest he’d ever saw a bride make her way down the aisle lol I was also dead set on not crying that I didn’t allowmyself to fully take in what was happening in order to avoid the waterworks, so I told myself not to look Dh in the eyes while I walked down 🙁
i regret not using the bathroom at all that day since the morning, because I didn’t want to miss out on the fun. Because I never went to the bathroom i never touched up my makeup so halfway through the reception I no longer had lipstick on and my forehead was shiny (will have to upload a pic of this later on). I also should have readjusted the hooks in the back of the dress to a tighter hook because from moving around so much my dress became looser and all night I kept pulling up my dress and readjusting my boobs lol
i also regret not telling off my oldest sister who out of spite treated my mother so bad that she made her cry and spend a good portion of the reception in the bathroom crying. My sister was angry that I had my brother sit at a different table than them because I was trying to avoid any confrontation between him and his ex wife (who I have a better relationship with then my brother). I think because of this she used it as a scapegoat to become all indignant and for whatever reason took it out on my mom by cursing her out and threatening to hit her. I didn’t know any of this until well into the reception and so in order to avoid making a scene I didn’t put her in her place. I wish I would’ve stood up for my mom even if it meant some kind of throwdown (knowing my crazy sister she would’ve thrown a punch and no way in hell I’d not throw one back) Because I know she ruined what was supposed to be a special day for my mom. I hadnt talked to her in over a year after the wedding.
i regret not paying extra so that the reception would end at 11 instead of 10 when we first booked our venue. the music was great, everyone was having a great time and almost everyone stayed to the end that we were tempted to add an hr but it would’ve been way too expensive to have paid out of pocket the night of.
I regret not planning my court wedding a little better. I knew I could just pick a random day and do it which I did but made it feel less special. I regret not shelling out more $ for my dress, his suit, a nice cake, photographer, decorations…. Sigh.
