Zola, a wedding planning website, recently published their 2018 Wedding Planning Survey which aims to educate first time brides of the spending regrets of newlywed couples. Weddings are expensive affair regardless of the budgeting and the planning ahead. The challenge for first time brides is that they don’t know which factor they should spend money on and which ones are okay to miss out on. For the survey, Zola invited more than 750 newlyweds to participate. This will help them plan whether to get a wedding coordinator in Sydney or spend the money somewhere else.
According to the survey there are three most common regrets of couples during wedding planning.
- More than a third of couples or 35 per cent regretted not hiring a videographer for their big day.
- Twenty per cent of newlyweds regret not hiring a wedding planner for their event.
- Seventeen per cent of newlyweds regret stressing too much about finding the perfect vendors for their wedding day.
Jennifer Spector is the newlywed-at-large of Zola and she added that it is worth hiring a videographer for the wedding day because it helps the couple be at ease.
Spector explained that weddings are very important events but without the newlyweds knowing their big day is already over. With a videographer, they will be able to relive and see everything that has happened especially as they can’t be at all sides at once. When hiring a photographer, ask if they have a videographer under their team or they must know someone whom they are comfortable working with. This is the only way for newlyweds to fully enjoy the occasion knowing that they can relive each detail afterwards.
Zola revealed that these are the top things newlyweds regret spending too much money on:
- Flowers and decors.
- Hair and makeup.
- Attire for the actual wedding day.
On the one hand, these are the things they regret not spending more money on:
- Wedding coordinator.
- Flowers and decors.
- Band or DJ.
Survey revealed that most newlyweds took their wedding coordinator in Sydney for granted realizing only after the event that it is actually one of the most unforgettable wedding elements.
