No, we aren’t talking about who they regret marrying! As couples did their own wedding planning with the help of friends or family- post wedding? Some share with us what they would have done differently.
“When we got married the only thing I wish I could have changed was our first dance song. I also realize we should have gotten married in Ontario instead of Quebec because in Quebec the woman doesn’t take her new husbands last name.”-James
“I somewhat regret not listening to my Mom when she suggested we should take some more time for photos (just the two of us).”– Natasha
“I should have requested that the camera was to stay on the entire night, instead someone shut it off after the ceremony and it was never turned back on. The speeches and everything during the night was not recorded and that was important to me.”-Jessica
“Number 1: Review that guest list 100 times and make sure whoever is at the door has the most updated one (especially if it’s a big wedding like ours was). Number 2: Designate someone to assist the photographer if you have a big family and a big bridal party. Or else Uncle “I-Don’t-Know-You” will photo bomb all your shots. Number 3: Review the songs you want played at key moments with your DJ. Nobody wants “Baby Got Back” for the groom and mother dance (unless that’s the plan?).”– Mike
“I wish I hadn’t stressed so much about the little details that no one else would even notice or remember. I regret putting money towards ‘things’ instead of towards more people being able to attend.”-Corinne
“We shouldn’t have cheaped out on the photographer, they say you get what you pay for and it’s true!”-Kim

That first dance as newly weds is a spectacular yet very intimate moment you get to spend with your new spouse. It’s probably the only significant amount of time you will actually get to spend with them during the remainder of the reception- you have guests to entertain and catch up with! Before choosing, a few things should be kept in mind.
First, you need to determine what I like to call “your couple style”. What does this mean? Well, are you both sappy romantics, lovers of classics, quirky and full of humor, intense…? Since you have been a couple for sometime, there are sure to be songs in various genres that you both love or connect with. Once you determine this it will be easier to narrow down the genre of the song you want to choose.
Next important thing to keep in mind is your guests. Now, grandma and grandpa can party with the best of them but they may not appreciate the raunchier sometimes inappropriate songs. You want to be certain that your selection will not come across as offensive or distasteful. So be wary of lyrics and expressions made in the song before choosing.
One last thing to take into consideration is for the song to represent you both in a way that is memorable. Whether it’s the song that was playing at the lounge the night you both met, or a song you both love to crank in the car on road trips or even a song he played to tell you he was thinking of you. Have it be a song that immediately connects the two of you and reinforces the bond you share.
If you have trouble deciding, pull out some old Cd’s, call the girls over, snuggle up on the couch with your honey and go through some playlists and narrow your list down and then choose through process of elimination!
