Woman Shares Wedding ‘Regrets’ She Wished She’d Thought of Beforehand – Newsweek

2 minutes, 45 seconds Read

Social media users have taken to TikTok to share their biggest wedding regrets with future brides—and one woman’s contribution came with a reminder: It will be the day it’s meant to be.

In a video posted on the platform, Clare Kearins, 29, looked back on her wedding day and discussed her regrets. Despite having things she would have done differently, she said she still had the “best day” of her life.

She captioned the May 18 video, “My wedding regrets,” adding “I loved watching these videos when I was planning our wedding!”

In the video, which has received more than 78,000 views, Kearins listed six things she would have done differently if she could plan her wedding all over again. Some had to do with photos and content—she would hire a “wedding content creator” and plan photographs in advance. Others had to do with her attire. Kearins said she would not pay as much for her wedding shoes. Her final piece of advice for future brides? Save some cake before serving it to guests.

“One thing I wish I had known was to tell the venue to keep some of our wedding cake for ourselves to enjoy the next day, as we never even got to try it,” she told Newsweek.

Kearins said that she was inspired to make the video because other TikTokers had shared tips about wedding planning. Similarly, she wanted to be useful to future brides.

“My regrets are mostly things I would never have thought of,” she said. “It really is a situation you don’t know until you experience it yourself.”

The Best Advice? Take the Pressure Off

Kearins said that despite the small things she would have changed, her wedding day was still special—in large part because of her ability to relax.

“We didn’t put any major pressure on ourselves,” she said. “To us, it was just a party, and I think that kept us relaxed. We were both so relaxed on the day and really had the best day of our lives.”

Kearins added that worrying is useless as big events require a bit of surrender to whatever happens.

“There is no point worrying on the day about anything,” she said. “Everything is out of your control, and nobody really notices.”

“When I pulled up at our venue, the flower arch was in the wrong place,” she continued. “I just laughed and thought, If this is the worst that happens, great!”

Happy bride, happy guests, Kearins said. While she may have been anxious in the lead-up to her wedding, she let everything rest on the day itself.

“I’ve never felt more relaxed,” she said. To future brides, she added, “Everyone is there to celebrate you and your husband, so there’s no need to be anxious.”
