Texas Brides were asked what would did they regret not doing or doing on their big day in a FaceBook group for Brides to Brides.
Smiled more!!! I was sooo happy and we had our perfect wedding but for some reason I look so serious in my photos, so put your smile one no matter what happens!!
I regret not having a better photographer!
Have a quick snack between ‘I Do’ and pics. It was almost a BRIDE DOWN situation. Thankfully granny saved me with some ritz crackers in her purse.
Oh and I didn’t eat all day I didn’t even eat at the reception Because by the time we had the reception I was sick to my stomach and couldn’t eat at all nearly passed out..
Not smiling , and the drizzle of rain had something to do with it . My photographer had to keep reminding me to smile ….So if you can Smile . Lol
Have fun and let everyone do thier jobs assigned to them
Not having a day of coordinator!
Not eating, some how the entire night went by and I don’t think I ever sat down.
I regret not having video! The day of you are so caught up in the emotions and excitement that everything becomes a blur. Not to mention it goes by soooooo quickly. I wish we had a videographer to capture the day so we could look back on it years to come!!!!
I’m so glad we had was a photo booth though that had video capability so we can see everyone’s “wedding wishes” 💗
Have a plan for your bouquet – preserving somehow?
We DIY DJ’d…big mistake.
Wish we’d have rented linens and a dance floor to pretty it up to its potential.
Less people- I had 140. And felt like I didn’t get to spend quality time w everyone there. Sure I made sure to stop by every table and say hello (which took forever). But I wanted more time w maybe 1/2 the people that were there.
Oh, and more cake!! Def get more portions than the # of people you invite. My cake was amazing (shout out to Bavarian Cakery) and I wanted more! Too bad for me- it was gone.
Take alone time with just your husband before you go to the reception. Not drinking enough. A day of coordinator. Let go of any worries and stress just enjoy it. And have everything packed before hand we got back to our apartment and still had to pack for our cruise before we left the next day.
Drinking scotch before the wedding lol
Ok, so with our RSVPs trickling in, I want to help others avoid a mistake I made. I did address and stamp the envelopes for the RSVPs, but I did not put the return addresses on the envelopes for them. You know… the guests address… well neither did any of them. Now we’re hunting down who sent what. A friend suggested that we should have numbered the RSVP cards and kept a corresponding list. This way, return address or not, we know which card came from whom. Too late for our cluster $#@!, but maybe it’s not too late for some of you lol!
Thanks for reading.
Come Take a tour soon.
