    Default Wedding regrets?

    My DP asked me to marry him last night! Im so excited. But naturally I have started to wonder about the wedding...

    What would you change if you had your time again?

    What tips do you have for young players?

    And last but not least what was your favourite moment (just for the 'awwwhs')

    Aww congrats Brooke!

    Do what you and your DF want, not what everyone else wants.

    And if you have have any opinionated relatives, don't tell them about certain aspects until if happens if that makes sense.

    Congrats!!!

    I don't have any regrets, not everything went exactly to plan but nothing that mattered. I made sure we were surrounded by great food and company. I spent the first 10 months just looking so I knew what I wanted and the next 12 months booking everything in. Good luck with your planning.

    Congrats. That's lovely.

    My regrets, in the last few weeks before my wedding I lost too much weight and my dress was far too big around my b00bs. It was a stunning dress but looks baggy in all the photos. It took me about 5 years to go through the photos to choose just 2 to have on display in our house. I haven't even put the rest in an album, they are still loose in a box. We were supposed to choose our favourites for a photo book but I never did it. I was devastated when we got the photos. So my advice, don't loose too much weight and have your final fitting as close to your day as possible.

    My other regret, my Mum didn't want to make a speech and instead got my step father to make it. I hate my step father. I wish I'd said no when she asked if he could do it.

    My favourite moment was taking a few minutes with my DH during the reception to just look around at all our family and friends and know they were there to celebrate with us.

    Congrats on your engagement!

    The only thing I kind of regret is making the ceremony too short. It was a civil ceremony so no religious bits to pad it out. We didn't want a long ceremony but in hindsight it was too quick, with the excitement/emotion of the day I barely remember it! I wish we'd had a friend or family member do a reading so the attention was off us for a few minutes. It would have given us a chance to relax for a minute and let it all sink in!

    Definitely do what you want, not what others want you to do.

    We had a small relaxed backyard wedding. I dont regret a single thing It was one of the best days of my life.

    My favourite moment was looking at DH as I walked towards him and seeing tears in his eyes.

    Congratulations!

    We had a religious ceremony. Neither DH or I are particularly. I would still do the church wedding but I wish we had different readings and music.

    I also wish we had paid for the expensive photographer.

    Got an actual DJ instead of thinking an iPod would do the trick.

    I loved spending time with just me and DH.

    I regret not eloping. I hate being the centre of attention and I found planning a wedding when my family were in another state hard. I would have loved mum to help and back me up when my mil was have little sneaky digs at me.
