What’s the worst wedding advice you’ve received?

What’s the worst wedding advice you’ve received?

The worst wedding advice. This is kind of funny, but I just had to post it because it might be helpful for some of you, future brides. The idea came up after hearing this from one of my BFFs. Then I started to ask more and more, and here it is.

Disclaimer – I might have a very different opinion on many of these; however, I decided to collect and post them as I received them.

3 Wedding Planning Mistakes

Jessie: If they’re paying for it, they should get an opinion on it!!” It is a very manipulative way of saying, “I want your wedding to look the way and act the way that I WANT, not YOU want.” Learn to say, “thank you for the gift of paying for this thing we want for our wedding; we appreciate it.”

Sandi: A videographer isn’t worth it. My biggest regret not getting one bc it goes by so fast, and you don’t remember 3/4 of the day.

Lara: Being told I need to invite certain people because if I didn’t, feelings would be hurt. Ummmmm…… excuse me, what parts of the small wedding did you not understand? And I’m also not going to send invitations to people who are not even going to come, much less respond to an RSVP! It was small, fun, and memorable for us, only close family and friends.

Allison: I sometimes hear/see the advice to not use the word “wedding” while booking vendors, and say it’s for a party instead. Yes, you’ll get a cheaper rate, but if the vendor finds out you lied, they may pull out of the deal. Do you want your DJ to bail the day of? Your photographer? Your florist? Nope. People charge more for weddings for a good reason, they know most people only get one, and they want to give you the best service possible. It’s better, to be honest and upfront with your budget.

Joy: Don’t elope; you’ll regret not having a wedding” I wish with everything in me I had it to do over again! I would elope in a heartbeat and save myself the headache and money.

Daniela: You have to invite them; they’re family.”

Audrey: Save your energy for the wedding night“… SCREW THAT! We were sooo tired, and it took forever just to take my hair down and wash my frigging face! We ate McDs and went to bed like an old married couple!!

Erin: You can’t have it there because so and so won’t come“…. Guess what, they aren’t coming anyways now that it isn’t so inconvenient for them.

Rob: 6 toasts after a buffet meal is a good idea (hint – 6 toasts anytime is a bad idea), but it’s especially bad advice when doing a buffet meal.

And finally, the last two funniest worst wedding advice also might be the most real ones!

Loretta: Marry him…he’s such a good guy!

Leti: Have a wedding. We could’ve traveled around the world twice. Or use it towards our home.

  1. Another awful one I often hear from my brides regarding hair: “Just wear your hair down; you can pull it up yourself later for the ceremony or reception”, a bridesmaid or friend may even suggest they’ll help “since the curls will already be there”. Well, my thoughts here are a strict Hell, No!

    As bridal hair professionals, many of us offer an option of a day package with a second style for the bride (or, in my case, I call it the bride experience).

    If you are a bride who favors down of any sort, it’s always a good idea to keep your stylist for touchups and a potential hair change for the reception. Especially if you can’t decide on up or down or just simply want the best of both looks. It’s like a dress change and, in my experience, best left for the professionals rather than the casual pullback. This is your wedding day; no shortcuts or having bridesmaids doing your hair… you deserve the best.

    I think the worst wedding advice I’ve ever heard given to anyone was not to worry about the price because it was a once-in-a-lifetime event. Yeah, an event you’ll pay for for the rest of your life if you aren’t careful!

  3. Stephanie

    Hah, the one about saving energy for the night of is so true! By the time my husband and I got ot the hotel, it took 30 minutes to get my hair down, another 30 just to wash all the product out, and we went to bed. We also didn’t plan well and were married the night the clocks moved forward so we lost an hour of sleep!!

  4. Maureen

    Oh my goodness. I can so relate! The “you have to invite them because they are family” is such a mood killer. I know they are family but exactly when did they show up to be one? Hmmm…yeah.

  5. Elise Ho

    I agree with Erin. I wanted a very different wedding. If we had done it my way so much drama would have been avoided.

  6. Jennifer L Prince

    Ah yes. Couples should be able to do what they want. After all, it’s the one special day that’s only for them!

    Me and my partner were thinking of eloping when I read Joy say: “Don’t elope; you’ll regret not having a wedding” I wish with everything in me I had it to do over again! I would elope in a heartbeat and save myself the headache and money. i think this made my mind up!

  8. Gervin Khan

    I totally love reading this article, it brings a smile to my face while reading every advice you’ve cited here! All, is just so hilarious but totally facts! Loved it!

  9. briannemanzb

    I agree with Leti tho. I’ve always wanted a wedding but it really depends on people. Some people might want to travel instead of it. They both are precious and special.

  10. Dominique

    Oh gosh – that I had to appease other people on MY wedding day! HA!

  11. Ntensibe Edgar

    I don’t even know why I laughed at “Marry him….he’s a good guy”. It sounds so hilarious!

    It is your wedding and your moment, and it is you and your partner who should decide what you want. Don’t let others meddle and decide for you coz, it might open doors for more issues down the line.

    Just enjoy every moment.

  13. Fransic verso

    That’s bad. I don’t like the one inviting people not to hurt their feeling. Thank you for sharing!

  14. Sonia Seivwright

    Ha! Now I know not to ask for or listen to any advice regarding my wedding.

  15. Knycx Journeying

    It’s a fun read and I didn’t know there are so much “interesting” advice flying around, and i agree with you on most of them!

  16. Anosa Malanga

    The worst advice probably is to wear the best wedding dress even if it costs you a fortune because it’s just a once-in-a-lifetime event! Hahaha, I don’t think I will do that.
