"I would've had a second dance!": 12 things real brides would've done differently for their wedding
Be less nervous!
“I wish I spent more time admiring my fairylights. I didn’t have much decorations at the wedding, but I especially hired a vendor for this. Before the wedding, I was imagining myself enjoying every bit of it during our march-in. But because of my jitters, and my gown (it was very difficult to walk gracefully in it without tripping), my attention was not spent even a second on my extra expenses! So wasted!” – Siau Jiahui, who married Mr T in a blush pink wedding.
“If I could do it all over again, I probably would’ve opted to get married in an air-conditioned place, and ensure there were enough desserts for our guests! They ran out pretty quickly.” – Emmeline Low and Kenneth Ong
“I would have spent more time taking photos with my close friends and families. As the day was packed with activities, I didn’t had enough time to capture more moments with my loved ones.” – Jenny Tay and Darren Cheng.
“I would have taken more photos with our wedding entourage, especially the ‘sisters’. They looked so pretty in their silver dresses. My advice to all brides-to-be: A photo plan or checklist will come in handy!” – Li Yuling and Anders Gustafsson.
“I wish we had hired a videographer too. Our photographer was fantastic, but there were so many priceless moments like our vows and speeches we could have recorded.” – Katrina Stehle and Cory Gallagher.
“On hindsight, we might have held separate celebrations for friends and relatives. We wanted to have more friends at our wedding, but could not, due to the venue’s space constraints.” – Koh Pei Li and Symond Lim
“I wish we could’ve had a second dance after the first one (we picked up the foxtrot for the occasion), especially when our guests asked us to do a second number! But as we had limited time, we carried on with the programme as planned.” – Clara Chua and Lawrence Koh.
“If we could do it all over again (we’re also having a second celebration in France for Pierre’s family!), I would’ve had the one wedding dress for the occasion, instead of having multiple changes during the reception, so I would’ve more time with my loved ones!” – Celia Chen, who wed Pierre Pinault in a French-Chinese ceremony
