Texas Wedding Tips: Common Regrets Brides Experience Post-Wedding
If you are adding the final touches to your big day and want to make sure you do everything ‘right’, here are some things Texas brides regret about their wedding day.
Your wedding will likely be a blur of excitement, nerves, talking to guests, and enjoying the event you put so much time and effort into. This can lead to you forget to eat, and leave the wedding realizing that you never enjoyed the delicious food you paid for. So, be sure to eat a good breakfast, snack throughout the day as needed, and enjoy the meal and dessert you selected for the evening.
Getting ready later in the day
While it might seem like a good idea to save hair and makeup for closer to the start of the wedding in order to have it as fresh as possible, that isn’t always the best idea. It can lead to feeling like you are rushed right before your big moment, and you aren’t left with the option to make any adjustments if you aren’t completely happy with your look. So, get ready as soon as possible, do any touch ups before the ceremony if you have to, and avoid the chaos of running behind schedule.
Not spending more time with their partner
While it is important to spend time with and make sure your guests know you appreciate them coming to your wedding, it is important to remember that the day is about you and your partner. So, be sure to take the time to enjoy the day with them and don’t let yourself get pulled in too many directions, missing out on the special moments with the person you love.
Weddings are going to be stressful no matter what, so trying to keep the stress to a minimum is always helpful. This means that it is better to be safe than sorry and try to be as organized as possible for your big day. Whether you can handle it on your own, or need to hire a coordinator, organization is key to a day that runs smooth.
Not prioritizing photos and video in the budget
Weddings are expensive, and after spending a pretty penny on a venue, dress, and food, there are some things that seem like a good idea to skimp on and go for the cheaper option. One of those things that tend to be sacrificed are the photos and videos. Many brides wish they invested more into their photos because those are what you will look back on for the rest of your life to remember your special day.
Getting too drunk
Lastly, many brides wish they took is slow with the booze and didn’t let themselves get too drunk. While it can be a great time to get a buzz going and dance with your friends, you will want to remember the day in all of its glory. So, throwing up in the bathroom or drinking so much you forget half the reception may not be the best idea.
