Common Wedding Regrets


When looking back on your #BestDayEver, it can be hard to have zero regrets. Maybe the sun didn’t shine or, your earring fell out during pictures. While we hope that you don’t have any regrets on your day, we want to share three common wedding regrets so that you can plan ahead and get a little bit closer to that PERFECT wedding! 😀

Not Hiring A Videographer

Photo stills of the day will always be timeless pieces of memorabilia. That being said, the big day tends to be such an epic blur to most wedding couples because of all the events and emotions. Getting to actually rewatch the emotions as they unfolded in those special moments is quite astonishing and moving. The way your dress will flow in the wind, the sound of gasps as you walk down the aisle, that first dance moment with your parents. Whatever it is, a videographer will be there to capture every moment in motion!

Wearing Uncomfy Shoes

We all know that your wedding day is the day you’re supposed to pull out the best version of yourself. That may include those cute 4-inch heels that you’ve been eying for months. Although cute, we highly recommend wearing a pair of shoes that will be comfortable on your wedding night. There are many ways to get away with it. For starters, if your dress flows past your feet, it will most likely cover your feet. So no one will even know. If you can’t part with your heels for the fear that they’ll show up in your pictures, that’s completely okay. Rock your heels for pictures and switch them out for shorter heels or even flats when it comes to dancing. The last thing you’d want is to be held back when the electric slide comes on!

Forgetting to Create A Must Play Playlist

You’ve heard time and time again that you’ll want to give your DJs a list of songs that you don’t want to be played at your wedding. You’ve even asked yourself what song will play during your first dance. But what about those songs that you KNOW get you out on the dance floor within the first few notes. Those are also songs that you’ll want your DJ to know about. There are good songs that will get everyone to stay on the dancefloor, but don’t forget to mention the ones that make you get on the dancefloor in the first place!

Worrying About the Little Things

Centerpieces, playlists, seating arrangements, bridesmaids’ dresses, room decor, something blue. Seriously we could go on for a while here. When many brides and grooms look back, they stressed a little too much on some smaller details that just didn’t really matter in the scope of things. When you’re caught up in the moment on if your napkins should be white or cream, try to keep a rational mentality. Remind yourself, this day is about you and your partner and celebrating your love.

Once your wedding day comes, you can take a deep breath because you have done all you can to create the best day ever. From avoiding mother nature, being stress free, and having a videographer to capture it all!
