It’s so easy to fall into ‘what if’ mode after the wedding – looking back on all the things you wish you’d done. We have listed 5 things you will totally regret not doing on your wedding day!

1/ Not Giving The Photographer A Photo Checklist Make time to sit down with your partner and discuss which pictures are really key to you as a couple. Perhaps a loved one is absent from the day and it’s imperative that the photographer takes a picture of the portrait you are carrying of them in your bouquet or buttonhole. Or like a lot of families, you could have an unconventional family set-up with step-parents or step-siblings that are important to you and you can’t imagine not featuring heavily in your photos.

2/ Not Doing Morning of the Wedding Gifts Missing this off your wedding to-do list is a big mistake. It’s the cutest way to connect with each other without actually being together and whatever gifts you give are sure to be treasured. Tears guaranteed!

3/ Not Having a Videographer It flies by so quickly that being able to re-watch the special moments from your day is priceless. If your budget won’t stretch, ask a friend to film the ceremony and speeches instead – it’s worth having at least a bit of your day on camera, even if it’s by a guest!

4/ First Dance Song A surprising point on the list of things couples regret is the 1st dance song. Your first dance is much more than just a music track. Listen to the lyrics and your heart, but try not to overthink it. It is very romantic to pick a song that can be yours – and bring back sweet memories.

5/ A Quality Moment Most importantly! Take a break for the two of you, go somewhere quiet, and just savor the moment you two have been waiting for.
