Wedding Advice: What Would You Do Differently?

How many times do you hear past brides say, “I wish I could redo my wedding”?   According to an article I got from the Huffington Post,  New York Magazine asked 100 recent brides what would be on their “do over” list and what they would keep the same if they had a chance to have their wedding over.  I found a few things very interesting that I wanted to share and get your thoughts on.

The first part of the article I found interesting was the question that asks brides what they regret spending so much money on.  Out of 100 brides 17% said they regret splurging on flowers which was very surprising to me.

Interestingly enough recent brides said they wish they had spent more of their budget on photography and flowers!  Seems that setting your priorities on what is important to you is key.  Try not to go overboard or you may regret spending too much in one area.

New York Magazine also asked what were some of the best gifts that they registered for and kitchen knives were the number one answer.  When asked what they wished they had left off of their registries brides answered a blender.

And my favorite question asked was what do brides wished they had paid more attention to on their wedding day and the number one answer was lipstick.  This made me chuckle since I wish I would have reapplied my lipstick more often too!  What about you?
