1 Thing You Would Change About Your Wedding Day

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

We dream of our perfect wedding day. The day finally comes and the little things you spent hours obsessing over turn out not to mean so much afterall (I know it's hard to imagine but hindsight is sooo 20/20) I wanted to do this post so future brides could hear from past brides and their experiences. I compiled a list, in no specific order, of what brides have expressed could have been more at the top of their priority list. Perhaps you may want to consider these things too. I hope it helps!
  • specific music play list/do not play list to band/dj
  • detailed shot list for photographer
  • spent $ on a videographer
  • grandparents/pregnant guests got served dinner first
  • put a # on invitations so I could figure out who the guests were that sent them back blank
  • splurged on what I really wanted to wear
  • wasn't pressured into inviting someone I wasn't close to
  • hire a "day of" coordinator so me and my people wouldn't be bothered and just enjoy the day
  • got married different time of day so it wouldn't be super hot
  • didn't leave for our honeymoon right away
  • didn't spend so much effort on programs that were thrown away
  • planned better timeline so things wouldn't be rushed or dragging
We'd love to hear from you. What's one thing you would change about your wedding day?

I would have shopped around a little more for a wedding photographer. The one we went with was a co-worker's relative for a bargain, but ended up being an hour or so late, and didn't stay for the entire 4 hours for which we'd paid. That was disappointing.

Couldn't have anticipated this ahead of time, but our reception hall ended up being SUPER hot. In retrospect, it would have been nice to have brought electric fans just in case (since there was no A/C).

Also, again, couldn't have anticipated this, but our caterer ran out of water after dinner due to the heat. In retrospect, I would have told him to bring way more than he thought he needed just in case.

Otherwise, I wouldn't have changed a thing about my wedding. It was awesome!
