Weddings are supposed to be one of the happiest days in a person’s life, and for most, it is. Occasionally, though, I’ll hear stories about a bride not being happy. Maybe the cake wasn’t perfect or maybe the timing of the day was off. It could be a lot of different things. My goal is to always help make the day go as smoothly as possible and make everyone happy. I started wondering what the most common issue was. I decided to ask people what their biggest wedding regret was.
Biggest Wedding Regrets
I was kind of surprised how many people were willing to talk about this online. I had the question up for a few days and I think I got around 20 responses or more. The answers were pretty varied like I expected, but there was a reoccurring one that kept popping up.
By far, the biggest wedding regret was not getting a wedding video. Of course, as a wedding videographer, I already kind of expected this, but it was a good piece of information to have.
Since we do wedding photography as well, I’ve really gotten to see both sides of it. People are always going to hire a photographer, and they are willing to spend a good chunk of money on it. Videography, on the other hand, is usually a last minute decision, and the budgets are much, much lower.
It’s not until after the wedding that people realize what they missed. They missed the vows, the laughing, the speeches, all the things that photography can’t capture. These words are so important, and you will forget them if they aren’t recorded. I promise. I got married close to 12 years ago, and I can’t remember a single word spoken the entire day. The pastor was close to us, so I’m sure he said some special things. My brother gave a speech, but I have no idea what he said. I really missed out, and I don’t want others to miss out as well.
If you’re thinking about skipping out on a wedding video, I’d suggest you at least take a look at some of the films we’ve created. If that doesn’t get you excited about having a wedding film, then you probably don’t want one. We’d love to talk to you more, so feel free to send us a message, and we’ll tell you more about what we do.
