I Wish I Knew That Before I Had a Wedding...


If you are currently planning a wedding, first of all, congratulations on your engagement! Now, the hard work begins. You have probably heard that planning a wedding can be a bit of a nightmare. Of course, it is all worth it, and there will be plenty of fun and loving moments throughout the process. Nonetheless, you are going to be in for a few surprises along the way. Below, discover some of the things most brides wish they knew before they had a wedding.

  • Choosing your wedding rings is not as easy as it seems – A lot of people assume that choosing their wedding bands is going to be a breeze. After all, wedding bands are often quite simple and plain, especially compared to engagement rings. However, there are a number of factors that need to be considered, and there are many different styles available, as you will see here: https://www.whiteflash.com/wedding-rings/tacori/. Firstly, your wedding band needs to fit with your engagement ring perfectly. Secondly, you need to find something that both you and your husband-to-be like. If your partner isn’t very fussy, this will be easy. But you will be surprised by how many men start to turn fussy once the shopping process begins.

  • Simple is better – One of the biggest mistakes that brides-to-be make is overcomplicating things. It can be very tempting to do this. After all, you want your wedding to be perfect and different from everyone else’s. However, all you are doing is giving yourself much more work for your wedding. There is nothing wrong with simple, and it often turns out a lot better too.

  • Don’t be so critical – This is another trap that a lot of brides fall into. They worry about every little thing that does or does not happen. Don’t stress! It does not matter if your flowers are a slightly different variety than what you expected, or if you have forgotten to plan something.

  • Set boundaries – This can be one of the hardest things to do, but it is important to set boundaries from the offset, otherwise you can find things spiralling out of control. Remember, it’s your wedding, it’s not your family’s wedding, or your friends’ wedding either. You are going to get people asking you whether they can invite someone, for example, and it is important to be firm.

It is all about whom you want there, rather than keeping everyone else happy.

  • You don’t need two dresses – A lot of women think that they need two dresses for their wedding day. They don’t like the thought of dancing around in their wedding gown all day. In fact, though, you will find that you don’t have time to change into something else.

  • Listen to other people – You probably have some friends that have recently got married that are providing their advice. It can be tempting to ignore them. Your wedding is going to be different, after all! Listen to what they have to say. They probably have a few things they would have done differently.
