Three of the Most Common Wedding Day Regrets
As you sit back and ponder the #bestdayever, it can be difficult to avoid thinking about a few things in regret. Maybe the sun didn’t sparkle that day in Raleigh, the ceremony went by too fast or your favorite earring fell out sometime during the group photo session. While we really do hope you have none! We want to share with you the three of the most common wedding day regrets as you prepare for your very own magical day.
Missing out on a good photo op with that special someone
Plan ahead with your photographer, make a timeline that affords you the extra time needed to add guests that might not be on the traditional wedding photo list or specific people outside your family. Maybe a Great Aunt is flying in from Mexico, your sister just had the cutest set of twins, or you’ve just never had the chance to get a great photo of you and your grandfather. Obviously, we pray we can capture an image with all of your friends, and we just might, but in the end, you just need to consider who you’ll regret not having that professional photo with.
Not hiring a professional videographer
In Raleigh-Durham, videographers are more than likely a bit more affordably priced than your photographer. It’s not negative, it’s simply that photos and holding those images of the day, in your hands, will always be a major piece of wedding memorabilia. For many, the day is such a blur. Having brides and grooms, get to actually revisit the emotions as they unfolded in those tranquil moments is absolutely breathtaking.
Worrying too much about the small stuff
Centerpieces, music lists, seating assignments, bridesmaid dresses, decorations, something blue. Seriously, we could go for a while here! When the couple looks back, most of them will see that they probably stressed a little bit much on one or more of the small details than they likely should have. Putting a ton of extra effort into something that just didn’t matter in the grand scope of things. When you’re caught up in the moment of, should your napkins be blue or ivory, try to keep your thinking rational. Slow it down, remind yourself, this day is all about you and your partner celebrating your love.
Unfortunately, no you cannot control how the weather will turn out, or those tears as they start streaking our makeup during an overly emotional moment (if you can, we certainly applaud you!). But you can certainly help to ensure your memories are absolutely the ones you want… so take your time and think through these three most common wedding day regrets.
