Top wedding worries revealed

25 Apr 2016

What is causing you to tear out your hair in the run up to your wedding? A new survey has revealed the biggest stresses that you might suffer from

A survey of 1,000 new brides conducted by online gift retailer has revealed the biggest wedding worries.

It appears many brides all feel the pressure of putting together the perfect day, with 41% worried about achieving perfection. Bridesmaids and the best man also prove a stressful subject, with 1 in 10 brides worried that their bridesmaids wouldn't fit into their dresses and 16% sceptical about the behaviour of the best man on the day.

Wedding photos ranked fairly high, with one fifth of brides concerned that their official photos wouldn't look as good as their selfies. 

The rise of social media has had a huge impact on weddings; not only are one third of brides concerned about how their photos will look on Facebook, but the same amount also felt a need to plan for social media on their big day. Yet the inspirational functions of social media are clear, with 36% of respondents admitting that they would like to copy a wedding featured on social platforms.

Here, you can see the full infographic, where also offers their coping strategies for when the going gets tough.
