Brides reveal their biggest wedding day regrets

One person said their main regret was telling people not to take pictures because their photographer said the flash from another camera could ruin pictures.

So they told people to refrain from taking pictures and explained the situation.

‘We had a great wedding and the photographer even sent an extra photographer to work the wedding,’ they said.

‘A few weeks after we tried contacting her for the photos. We got ghosted. We tried for about a year to track her down. We were still willing to pay for the photos, even unedited. We just wanted the photos.’

Fortunately some people didn’t get the message so they still have a few photos from the wedding.

The worst part was that someone had contacted the wife through Facebook two weeks before the wedding warning them about her.

Another person said they regret letting their mother-in-law have a say in anything she wanted as it ended up ruining the food. 

‘She refused to let this chef do our wedding because she called back to see if we wanted to use her and that bugged the mother-in-law,’ she said.

‘Instead we had a grocery store do it. It was awful. We ran out and my wife and I didn’t get any food.’

Someone said they regretted sending out paper invitations and RSVPs as they put themselves through a lot of stress trying to get them mailed back.

They instead recommended setting up a wedding site for people to respond to. 

‘At one point we’d gotten very few RSVPs back and I had a total crying meltdown about how no one was going to come,’ she said.

‘Of course they were going to come, it’s just no one uses mail anymore. Save yourself the headache and the money. It’s my biggest wedding regret.’

Another person said they regretted letting other people pay for the special day.

This is because as soon as it happened it meant they felt like they could take over the wedding.
