Blink and you’ll miss it ??????
Don’t fall into a statistic…
We’re sure you are going to get plenty of advice (wanted or not!) when it comes to planning your destination wedding. Whether it be pinterest, blogs, planners, Auntie Mavis, social media or your over excited Maid of Honour! But we’re about to give you some actual FACTS, yep…hard statistics so you won’t make the one crucial mistake that so many couples admit to after their wedding.
Picture this…your wedding day in the beautiful French Chateau complete with vineyard that you found 18 months prior. 50 adoring family and friends have flown all the way over to share in your picturesque celebration. Florists have delivered the pastel peonies, roses, and foliage you picked with detail and care, your hair is pristine and your make up artist is adding the finishing touches to your flawless look. Your bridesmaids are giggling excitedly, enjoying the French champagne and wearing their stunning matching dresses. Your Groomsmen are tempting you with a hipflask of whiskey as bit of Dutch courage, you can’t believe how well they’ve scrubbed up in their 3 piece suits. Your guests are arriving at the ceremony and can’t believe how stunning the location is, in complete awe, agreeing that a wedding in France really is something special. They excitedly take their seats and await the arrival of the most important people of the day. Your mothers are on the front row, emotional already, sharing in these moments together. Groom nervously awaiting, your best man by your side trying to make you laugh to settle your nerves! Your father walks you down the aisle, his face full of pride, eyes full of emotion and you say your vows to one another in the French afternoon sun.
The day literally flies, adrenaline is pumping all day, you’re pulled from pillar to post fulfilling your duties of the day…so much goes on that you don’t get to see for yourselves. Which is the reason a huge 35% of couples say their biggest regret is not getting a videographer to capture their day, yes that’s right 35%!!! There are things that just can’t be captured in photo’s – saying your I Do’s and your families reactions as you say your vows, the hilarious speeches that get the room roaring with laughter, the preparations you take separately in the build up to greeting one another at the end of the aisle. No wonder 35% of couples say if they could do it all again, that’s the thing they’d change!
