What my husband would/wound't change

Recommended Posts

Here is his top of mind three things I would definitely do and three that didn't matter so much (he didn't totally follow directions, but this is exactly what he said)...


Definitely do:

1) Firedancers

2) Waiting to see my bride walk down the aisle was one of my favorite memories

3) Big on the entertainment vs. other things like the food and flowers - I remember fireworks and firedancers, but not the food and I'm usually very picky about food. If you're thinking of spending $600 more in food vs. getting firedancers, I'd go for the firedancers

4) go barefoot on the beach - go casual all the way - if your guests wear shorts, all the better. It's so hot there no matter what you do, you want your guests to feel like they're on vacation

5) go a few days before so you can spend time with people and get in a groove. At least two nights before.


Didn't matter so much/would do differently:

1) Stay a day or two later to spend time with people (we left on Sunday at 1 and our wedding was on Saturday).


I don't know - it went really well - there's not much that I can think of that I would change.


Ladies - what about your husbands?

steve would probably:


NOT change:

  • seeing me walk down the aisle
  • all the events we had planned (welcome dinner etc.)
  • having our meals with our guests (breakfast, lunch by the pool, dinner)


  • he would probably skip out on deep sea fishing. a few friends were hung over and got seasick and it was alot of $$ and i think he would have preferred to surf.
  • not taken the dancing class i made him do. the instructor was kooky and steve absolutely would not do the dance she horeographed for us (even though it was over the top)

i will ask my husband tomorrow. hes already asleep.


as we were planning everything i knew he would have been totally fine with just going to vegas and skipping the bigger wedding with everyone in palm springs. during the reception we were dancing and he looked at me and said "im so glad you made me do this." it was really funny. i know he wouldnt change doing the bigger wedding with friends and family. but i will ask him what he would/wouldnt change about that day/wedding.

My husby said "I wouldn't change much of anything"


He said he would have changed some of the music by our DJ (to have more slow songs)


He would definitely do again:

Zip Line (shoot I still never did a thread on this!)

Cabo Surf Hotel

La Panga

he would let me do all the work again (jk! jk!)


No really, I think he was just happy to relax and chill out with his friends, and not have to worry about a thing.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
