If you could change or prevent one thing that happened during your wedding or wedding planning, what would it be?
I would probably be slightly less “bratty” during the planning process. I definitely did not want our reception to be a reflection of our parents, rather than us, and that was the motivator behind my attitude. But I probably could have been a little more tactful about how I handled some offers for help, etc.
I’m not sure if, or how I would change this, but I certainly wasn’t prepared for it: Making my 3 boys go back home after our destination wedding was a lot harder than I had anticipated. But keeping them around for our honeymoon wasn’t a desirable option either. If I could do it over again I would plan a second ‘mini honeymoon’ for our new family. So that the kids had something to look forward to when we returned from our real honeymoon.
The only thing I would change at my wedding would be the guest list. My parents wanted to invite a lot of family members out of tradition but as I wanted a small wedding this left very little space for actual friends. Other then that my wedding was fine………I think…….
Still single! However I would say as a singleton that stress is the number 1 thing to reduce for planning your wedding. It’s YOUR and your PARTNERS wedding. And really – if the flowers arrive in the wrong colour or you have to divide the food in half or have the guests take turns singing their favourite tunes acapella cause the dj passed out…it’s cool.
Your day is about your commitment to each other and all the rest of it is detailing. We all want a perfect wedding but being too attached can perhaps lead to a stressful and avoidable situation.
