This is what couples said they wish they could have done differently:

  • “Save more in advance.”
  • “I would be more organised and have booked more suppliers. I took on too much DIY and now I am panicking.”
  • “Not cared what other people think!”
  • “Enjoy the process more, I only plan to do this the one time!”
  • “I would have gotten a videographer. Big mistake not having one.”
  • “Maybe eloped as my fiancé’s mother is a nightmare and is causing loads of unnecessary stress.”
