The best day in life requires good planning. But still there are some hops that can be avoided. What brides really regret …
Michaela, 43: "I would have liked to have had a video."
"Actually, I found our wedding pretty perfect: Celebrating in the country, but still in the middle of Vienna - wonderfully relaxed with good food, good music and the best people. Our main memory: How much fun we had that day. And we would have the same somehow better to hold on too - we hired women photographers, but above all we should have captured the wedding ceremony on video in order to secure forever all the touching and funny words that relatives and acquaintances knew to say."
Marlene, 35: "I would have invited more people …"
"If I hadn't been under such time pressure, I would have looked for a bigger location & really invited ALL the people who are dear to me!"
Christiana, 37: "Eating wouldn't have been bad!"
"I would definitely have eaten more. Before and during the wedding - as Mr. Rose, our caterer told me about 100 times. But I was so excited, I only got champagne and the wedding cake."
Susanne, 30: "The finest table decoration Fail"
"We had an amazing table decoration at our wedding: candle holders, beautiful vases with fresh flowers, fine tablecloths. However, the candlesticks were exactly at head height, so that some guests had a bit of difficulty talking to their counterparts. We would have should maybe sit down while decorating …"
Birgit, 53: "The bouquet was a disaster!"
"When I got married in Mauritius, I was unfortunately very dissatisfied with my bouquet. I couldn't do anything more and had to walk around with it all day it didn't help. I still get annoyed about this bouquet of flowers when I look at photos from back then."
Anne, 28: "Celebrating without my colleagues? It would never happen to me again!"
"My wedding was pretty perfect (without wanting to praise my abilities as a wedding planner too much) - but I already regret one thing: At that time I didn't know my colleagues very well and that's why they weren't invited. But we soon became real friends and that's why it's such a shame they weren't at my wedding!"
Carina, 28: "Better to try adhesive strips first!"
"My wedding dress was beautiful. It was a two-piece, i.e. skirt and top. The top did not allow a bra, which is why the lady in the bridal shop gave me special adhesive strips. I should have tried these in advance I had enormous problems with it and worked up a sweat. In the end there was no more strip left and I had to do without it. It annoyed me a lot at first, but during the day I had only a few problems with it. It also looks a little in some photos unfavorable."
Petra, 32: "Should have taken more vacation!"
"I'm the type who can work better under pressure. Of course I started planning a long time in advance and it was often very stressful, as every bride knows. However, I would have liked to have had more time to plan everything even better. I should have taken a few more vacation days here and there so that the preparation time doesn't get so exhausting."
