Wedding Planning Regrets

What is the one thing that you regret not planning for your wedding?


A while ago I asked a question to former brides what they regretted not having or doing in their weddings and we received some great replies.

The main one was a Videographer!

Our Videographer guru, Reid Johnson from Best Made Videos will tell you 79% will regret not hiring one.  Some think that it is an extravagant expense but I believe that a videography captures real-time emotion and that makes it worth it for me!

The next most popular regret is Dancing

Dancing is always fun and drunk people dancing is hilarious so it's a good idea to have your guests movin' and groovin' on the dance floor. A good DJ is recommended, they can keep the party flowing.

Assigned seating was a big regret.

Do you regret not hiring a wedding planner or a day-of coordinator?

Hiring a planner or a day-of coordinator is always a great idea, it makes it easier for you and your vendors.  They are your go-to person during your wedding planning and your wedding day.  Your planner knows great vendors, they plan your whole day out.  If a vendor has a question or something goes wrong they will handle it, not you! You may not even know anything went wrong on your day because of them.

Anna Lorenz of Pacific Coast Bride sums it up pretty well:

“You don't want to think about missing coffee creamer on your wedding day, something so small can cause a chain reaction and can really put an unnecessary kink in the day.”
Planners take care of all the little things that can go wrong or you forgot to plan for!  I for one would be devastated if someone forgot the creamer for my coffee. 😉
