Is there anything any ladies wish they would or would not have done now that the wedding is over (or in the final planning stages)? Anything that you regret?

Not really. Sometimes I wish I would have done bubba mugs over tumblers. Or a different centerpiece hahah which are so lame to
even think about so really no, I wouldn't have changed a thing

I haven't had my wedding yet, and I am very happy with how it's turning out so far, but I would have looked into off-resort venues. I didn't realize this was an option until it was too late. I don't know if I would have found anything better or cheaper, as I didn't investigate (didn't want to regret my choice!), but I think it's worth looking into.

I'm not sure this would have made a difference at all but I wish we a. included an rsvp card with our STD and/or b. placed the booking deadline on the actual STD.

I also wish I didn't procrastinate so much with the planning lol So much left to do and such little time.

There isn't much that I regret. There were a few small hiccups the day of, but those are pretty unavoidable and they generally go unnoticed. I do wish that I spent a bit more time on myself the day of the wedding. We waited a bit too long to start my hair and we ended up rushing through it in the end. On that note, I also wish I wore my hair completely up. The mexican heat/humidity and the week of saltwater on my hair made my hair very soft and unable to hold curls the day of the wedding. That was one thing that I definitely wish I did differently.

Don't think there's anything really that I regret except maybe that friends and family had been with us when we got married. But we had them all at our AHR so it worked out ok.

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@ashhtayy since the booking deadline wasn't on the STD did you feel rushed to send out your invites? I was considering waiting and putting it on the invite but your advice makes a lot of sense. Thanks!

@tiffanyt we didn't send invites lol seemed redundant when most our guests had already booked...

I felt it was silly to send invites when we sent a save the date and included our website that had all the details people needed. Only one person messaged us last week and said "wait, when is your wedding and should I book soon?" This person clearly lost the STD or never read the website. He also lives across the country from us so we aren't in constant communication with him.

    Dont jump into any decisions and gather as much info as possible

    start working with a TA as soon as possible saves so much trouble
