Top 5 Wedding Regrets You Should Be Aware Of

You spend so much time planning your big day and just like that, it’s over. In the end, when you look back on your day, you want to be filled with joy and happy memories, not regrets.

To ensure you have the best experience possible, it helps to be aware of the most common wedding regrets so that you can avoid them. 

  1. Not Resting and Relaxing Enough. You will never regret taking some time out to really relax in the days leading up to your wedding. You need enough rest if you want to enjoy every moment of the day. Plus, who doesn’t want to avoid under-eye bags on their big day? 
  2. Forgetting Who You Want to Thank. Friends and family want to help you out as you plan your big day and naturally, you want to thank them all. However, in all the chaos, it’s easy to forget someone, which can leave you feeling guilty the day after. Make a point of writing down the names of everyone you want to thank well before you start writing any speeches.
  3. Not Sending the Invite. If there are people you really want at your wedding, but you’re worried it might cause conflict or tension, rather send the invite – couples usually regret it when they don’t. This is your day, which means people can be adults for a few hours so that you can have everyone you love and care about there. 
  4. Booking Your Photographer for Too Few Hours. Your wedding photos are going to last a lifetime – they’re memories you’re going to want to look back on again and again. All too often, couples realize how many amazing moments take place after their photographer has left, so rather just pay for an extra hour or two.
  5. Stressing About Schedules. Your wedding day is going to be perfectly imperfect, but chances are, you will only realize it after the fact. Yes, you do need to create a schedule for your day, but don’t waste time stressing about whether something will start at exactly the right time or go perfectly to plan – it’s not worth it. 

By keeping these common regrets in mind, you’re one step closer to experiencing your dream wedding day!
