Wedding day excitement is one of the best feelings ever, and it’s almost impossible to ruin. But there are a couple of things you’d just prefer NOT to deal with on your big day…

Annoying bridesmaids

The morning of your big day is going to be a mixture of nerves and excitement. Getting ready and seeing yourself all dolled up in your wedding dress and make-up is going to be a really special moment. One thing that will take away from it? One of your bridesmaids shouting at the make-up artist that her eyeliner flick is wonky, and the other moaning about the dress not suiting her. 748


Having been planning this day for a long time, you know what’s what and you know when’s when. The day itself has been mapped out minute by minute, so why would, or how COULD anyone be late? Today, the term ‘fashionably late’ is reserved for the bride and her best girls only. No exceptions, boys – and definitely NO texts like these.


Unfortunately, as much as you would like to, you cannot control the weather. Rain is like an uninvited wedding guest – there’s nothing you can do once it’s come, but it’s a bit of a hassle. To get round it ruining anything on your big day, have a plan B prepared well in advance. What better excuse to buy you and your maids matching umbrellas? They’re the perfect photo prop!

Complaining guests

Whether it be about the weather, or whether the wedding guests have picked up on something else that they’re not so keen on, guests do complain. But do you know what? You don’t want to know, especially on your special day. There’s no point in dwelling on things that can’t be helped.

DIY disaster

So the ceremony is over, now you and your new hubby are walking into the reception venue… what do you see? Your homemade bunting falling apart by the second. It’s not ideal, especially if you spent a lot of time doing these DIY features and that superglue you used just isn’t sticking. But just think: firstly, this is a minor factor of your day and will not take away from how amazing it is in anyway! And secondly, superglue for bunting – really?

Phone pings

Whilst texts, Facebook messages, cute Instagram posts of you and your friend when you were little, and phonecalls wishing you luck on your wedding day is super nice, it also is ON your wedding day. The schedule for today is most likely pretty tight, and as much as you want to like, share and appreciate these little messages, it’s not the best time. Leave your phone on silent and keep focused on the things that need to be done, and leave those notifications until later…

Monster mothers

With the common motherly tendency to take over, this is up there with one of the most common pet peeves of brides on their wedding day. Whilst it’s all out of the goodness of all mothers’ hearts, and in a way, showing how much they love and care for you, it can get a bit much. Seeing as it’s your day and all…  Charlotte Greg Wedding -148

The football results

With Saturdays being the most popular day for weddings, you might know – and your male guests will definitely know – that it’s common for big days to clash with big games. No bride likes the idea of being in the middle of a conversation with her new hubby, to look up and find that he’s off to join the crowd of men surrounding a mobile phone that is streaming the live commentary of today’s football match.

No sitting down

Being a bride is busy work! Like having no time to text back your friend who couldn’t make the wedding, you might find you don’t even have that much time to sit down. Being on your feet all day long is only going to make you more tired, and probably a bit grumpy too. If a seat is near by, be wise and take the opportunity! Save your poor feet.

Drunken antics

It’s fair enough that weddings can be seen as a big party – there is something very special to celebrate after all! But what’s not something to celebrate is your teenage cousin passed out on the lawn outside the venue, or one of the groomsmen fast asleep in his soup (the first course of your five course meal).

Sore feet

From the moment you wake up on your big day, to the end of the night when you’re hitting the sheets, you’re going to be rushed off your feet… except, your feet are actually, probably going to suffer. Those skyscraper heels may have seemed like a great idea at the time but…


  1. Ohhhhhhhh I could go on for days lol best day of your life …. mine was one of the worst due to no fault of my amazing husband

  2. 1. Hair dresser cuts my hair then it becomes to fine to do anything with. Besides the fact that it wasn’t the same person who did trial. Took three hours and was as flat as a pancake!
    2. Go to put dress on and someone has hit it with a smoke and there’s a black streak across the front. Then someone comes up with the idea of Culb soda. This makes a large yellow stain!
    3. Ring bearer(my 4 year old son) pukes at alter! First time in his life!
    4. Flower girl then pukes in bathroom.
    5. First drink with fancy wine glass and someone knocks it out of my hand, spilling it all over front of dress.
    6. Go to pick up my son to hand him over to babysitter and he pukes again this time all over the front of my dress!
    7. Never hired a professional photographer (dumb) when we kiss in video someone is standing in the way. So kiss is missed in video and pictures all suck!
    8. At party I’m told my uncle just passed away!
    9. When leaving hotel next day. Champagne bottle explodes in the back of SUV!
    Only thing good about that day was marrying my best friend! It’s been 12 years!!
