4 Wedding Mistakes To Avoid From Real Brides

When you look back at your wedding day, you'll want no regrets. Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime event where every bride's goal is to have the best day possible, but what if you aren't prepared? That's where getting advice from other brides that were in your shoes can come in handy.

This blog covers wedding mistakes you should avoid, as told to us by Euphorie Real Brides.

"I loved my wedding, and although it was gorgeous and unforgettable, there is one thing I would've changed: If I could go back in time, I'd do a proper practice run in the days leading up to it so that everyone could see how I wanted things to go.

One big issue was those slightly awkward moments on the day, like not knowing who would be giving speeches or people being called but needing to prepare. I think a practice run makes everything flow better and creates a more cohesive wedding event for us all!"

"Don't leave the writing of your vows til the last minute. I know it seems like an 'easy' task because it is hard to tell the one you love just how much you love them, but it is more than that. 

When you've spent months or years planning a wedding, by the time you start to reach the finish line, you'll be so emotionally and mentally drained from planning that you'll want to enjoy your wedding. So, if that's when you'll need to write vows, you may experience severe writer's block. It's better to write them earlier, whenever you have time and brain capacity to do it."

  • Barbara Walters-Sonney

"Don't let the stress consume you; that would be my most significant advice. I've watched a few friends get married, and something I learned and focussed on at my wedding was not letting stress consume me or my husband and not letting stressful times get in the way of our love.

I know women who have nearly had to call off the wedding because the stress of planning it was starting to drive a wedge between their husbands and them, which is so sad because it defeats the purpose of why we get married in the first place!"

  • Annabella Nguyen 

"Don't get caught up in the hype of trying to appear perfect on social media with your wedding. When I first started planning my wedding, I put way too much stock into how it might be received or seen on Instagram when all my photos would eventually come out, and it drove me to tears on some occasions.

I know it's silly, and it seems so obvious, but I just wanted everyone to see my love story in the best light possible, but then I realised it only matters that it's MY love story, the way I want it! After that, everything became a lot less stressful, and things started falling into place."
