Stu and I recently got engaged and so now I am going to be on the other side of the camera!!! We are probably only going to get married in 2013 and we are slowly starting to work out what our priorities are. I decided to put a question out on facebook and the results were just too good not to share. I asked “Did you have any regrets about your wedding day?” Here’s what people had to say! Please feel free to add to this by adding a comment if the mood takes you.
Erica Barker i regret not having long hair…
Shan Truter I regret not having a big “princess” dress 🙁
Natasha Lassen that i didn’t go to bed earlier the night before… i went to bed at 3 am in the morning!! and uhm…. that we didn’t hire an independent professional photographer dedicated just to doing our photography! ha ha…. can you believe…
Yvette Gilbert Not having a videographer
Bex Berra Not having 2 more close friends as bridesmaids. Silly – should have asked them!
Estie Thirion Had the worst wedding photorapher!!
Mike Bootes Just doing it !
Melanie Geyer Matthews not getting to eat any of the food! we were to busy chatting! luckily we got a pizza on the way to our honeymoon!
Angela King having my husband as the DJ (jokes he was great … kinda), wish I had my veil on top and not under my hair-do. And I forgot to mention my new parents-in-law in my speech!!!
Chantel Bridger Spending so much time and effort doing all the decor ourselves, was gr8 to get my family involved and looked awesome but didn’t have enough time to just spend enjoying the moment with everyone!
Katie-Jayne Vorster No regrets but would have been nice to also have had a videographer. Oh and the guys were supposed to have a cream rose bud on their lapell but as I walked up to the ceremony all I could see were freakin CARNATIONS! My worste!!! Haha! And… Wish wedding was 2 days, too much fun to be had in 1 day!
Kate Steyn I sweated the small stuff- so unneccessary, your guests dont know what its meant to look like anyway!
Janine Buccimazza Redfern Not getting any of our wedding cake – was all cut up and given away before the end of the evening can u believe! 🙁 also not taking 5 mins out to just sit with my hubby and take it all in. It went by so quickly…oh and not managing to finish one drink. Kept getting a drink and then running off for a photo or chat and losing it! Ha
Kim Van Loo That my family werent there 🙁
Judy Jacqueline Wentzel Um…caterers ‘stole’ platters of food out the back door for another function!!
Fridges broke down..champers was warm…photographer lost the negatives. Um…seriously too the wedding dress was jinxed…had to add on,take in and alter…yes that’s normal if its days before but the maker was almost insistant that I get my dress minutes before dress up time!!!!??? Fortunately I insisted that I will try on the day before the wedding…I also walked around the venue on the day putting my candles in the flower arrangements….I was 19 and a tad doff….wish I could redo my day…we have lasted 30 years tho :)))
Fiona Verity Lindsay Wang The day was to short and I was to busy, time flies when you are having fun 🙂
Belinda Araújo Have a very relaxed evening the night before & early to bed, even if you can’t sleep 😉
Katharine Considine Forsyth Hmmm..actually, I don’t really have any regrets…little things like the vases the florist got being much bigger than I wanted, etc, don’t really matter! It was a great day. 🙂
Bernice Thorn I regret not saying anything… on the day everything was too emotional and overwhelming, and I didn’t want to cry in front of 120 people… so I binned my speech. If I could do it again I would love to say a few words, thank my parents and friends and tell everyone how much I love my husband.
Glyn Collins Yep, I only regret I didn’t meet and marry my wife earlier. and….. Obviously, though our phot’ was good, we should have had you!
Robyn Clabrough No regrets, no speeches, no small stuff to sweat over, loved it!
Melissa Hey Jacky see you planning your wedding I got marriend in May down in Jbay on the beach, it was the Best time eva especially for the boys as the Surf was cooking, any ways it was challenging organising everything from here But Defiantly worth all the effort as most of the guest came a week before and we were all on hoilday there. Which was really special as we put a lot of time effort and money into our special day and it goes so fast! Enjoy all the planning , savor each moment and don’t forget to enjoy each aspect of your wedding on the day, take a moment to sit back and watch your guests, it will make u smile watching them enjoying it!and don’t forget to taste all your food!! X x
Chrisine Meintjes that it wasn’t a 48 hour day! I didn’t want it to end!
Bride with a Blog Not eating enough! haha! Amazing food, but I couldn’t even touch it thanks to nerves #hungrybride
