My biggest regrets were:

Having it on a Sunday afternoon: just about everyone left immediately after dinner. Everyone aside from DH and I and a couple friends were gone before 9pm. ๐Ÿ™ because of this I wasnt able to chat with everyone ๐Ÿ™

No videographer: A family member was suppose to do it but forgot the camera at the reception site when they were setting up!!!! Im still really upset about it to this day lol

Some Picture Issues: Our photographer did a good job. Nothing spectacular like some of the awesome bees on here (granted I only paid $800 for pics) but we were so busy running around that we left out some important pics. I dont have any of DH with his dad and stepmom or my family. ALOT of detail shots were missing. There werent any of our dessert table, a full length picture of me. Or ANY of me alone.

 

all in all I still had a great time! I just try to focus on the positives of the experience!

Major regrets:

 

THe choice of Photographers!!!!!!

I should’ve went with my gut when we met with him right before the wedding and after we drove for over an hour to see him he spend the whole time talking about some issue with another photographer. They were so late they missed me getting ready, missed our first look, almost forgot my bouquet after they placed it on the ground for the picture (thankfully a good samaritan came running over to the car with the bouquet), spend the whole reception huddled together instead of seperating to capture different things through the night, went together to eat without letting us know and were nowhere to be found when my husband gather all 30+ people for a picture. AUGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Trust your instinct with vendors!!!!!!

Second regret: I didn’t realize that my dress was bustled the whole time, even though one of the things I liked the most about it was the beautifull train. Because of the photographers, we were so rushed and it seemed like there was soo much dress and I was so concerned with not dragging it, that I only realized after the ceremony that it was bustled the whole time. Ooopss!

Also, I think the ribbons of the bustle were kind of loose, which is why the dress was dragging despite being bustled

I am a couple of weeks out and am starting to get a bit nervous about all the little details I may be missing.  During the entire planning process, I’ve told myself I would  try to remain calm, go with the flow and enjoy the day.  Obviously as it approaches, I’m struggling with this!!

A friend of ours was married a few months ago and the bride came down with a virus the day before the wedding.  She made it to the ceremony but was taken to the hospital right after and both the bride and groom missed the entire reception!!  It doesn’t get much worse than that!!

@juliasoko:  I totally forgot to un-bustle mine for the ceremony as well!  The train on my dress was gorgeous but alas, no one got to see it.  Sad sad.  Oh well!

Oh man!  Having been a venue day-of manager the last couple of summers, I have seen all these and more, and it’s so heartbreaking to see a bride on her wedding day less than happy, especially when it’s things that could have been avoided. 

I wish every single bride could/would read this thread!!

Thank you ladies for posting your regrets. Although, I do feel very sorry for you all but it does help us upcoming brides to-be and hopefully, we will try to avoid these situations as well.
