Wedding Regrets


I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who has wedding planning regrets.  Overall, I had the best wedding and I got every single thing that I wanted (within reason of course).  During the planning process, I had the attitude of "if it started stressing me out, I cut it out."  I didn't want to become an overwhelmed bride. 

Looking back, I'm not really sure how I got it all accomplished.  Well- yes I do, my mom/wedding planner helped a TON!!!  We planned the wedding in about 5 months all while I worked full-time and attended graduate school. 

One of the standard wedding tasks that I skipped was taking bridal portraits.  In my head, I thought about the entire day being used up plus cost of photographer, hair, makeup, drycleaing dress afterwards, etc.  I just figured that we would get great shots of me on the big day anyway.

I was wrong.  I regret not doing bridals! 

My mom and I were at a wedding a few weeks ago.  As we admired the bride's gorgeous shots, we both admitted that we should have made this a priority.  My mom had an idea...why, can't you still do them?  Life's too short for regrets.  Just pull out the dress, hire a photographer, re-create your wedding look and get it done.  Love my mom!

So the question is - should I (one year later) pop into my dress and get bridal portraits made OR should I just live with this wedding regret? 

I would love to hear your opinion.  What are some of your wedding regrets? 

Bridal shots I love:

  2. Absolutely! I don't think you should tell Jason what you're doing and then give him a framed portrait of you as a bride for Christmas or something. Go for it. Great idea!

  3. Thanks for the feedback Laura and Jen! I'm thinking about it, but definitely need to lose a few pounds first to ensure I can fit into my dress!
