The UK’s top 10 wedding day fears have been revealed in a recent survey by EnduraRoses.com. 

Surveying 2,000 UK adults, the research has uncovered exactly what brides fear the most - with 'being stood up at the altar' being the number one dread, as voted for by 77% of respondents. 

Wardrobe malfunctions, bad weather and poor attendance also ranked highly, while 'arguments between guests' proved less concerning. 

The top 10 fears:

  1. Being left at the altar – 77%
  2. Wardrobe malfunction/ dress not fitting – 73%
  3. Bad weather – 69%
  4. Drunk guests – 55%
  5. Poor attendance – 43%
  6. Make-up or hair malfunction – 36%
  7. Uninvited guests – 31%
  8. Bad photography – 29%
  9. Forgetting vows – 23%
  10. Arguments between guests – 22%

Other worries included: taking a tumble while walking down the aisle (16%) and no-one catching the bouquet (11%)

Awais Babar, managing director at EnduraRoses.com, said: “Getting married is one of the most important days for many people, and months if not years of planning often goes into the big day. However, no matter how well planned fears of unforeseen events often run through our minds as we focus on everything running smoothly and making it a day to remember."
