This Is What Married Couples Regret Spending Money on at Their Weddings

Updated 06/12/17

You may have thought those monogrammed napkins were absolutely necessary ahead of the big day, but buyer's remorse still exists when it comes to your wedding (and it likely won't set in until the honeymoon fog has lifted). And when you consider that the average wedding now costs $35,329, your financial regret could be a hard pill to swallow. But in the spirit of sharing knowledge and helping other engaged couples avoid the same financial faux pas, Insider reached out to married couples about what they regret spending money on at their wedding. Here's what they had to say:

Programs: "Ugh programs! No one cares. They know what's going down," said Alyssa Kostick, who's been married one year, to Insider.

Wedding favors: "Personalized favors are a huge waste of money and are totally a product of the wedding industry," said commenter wrigleyville aid on The Knot.

Monogrammed napkins: "My groomzilla demanded them so we did them. I could have cared less," said WeddingWire commenter ItsGoodToBeKing. "We have lots left over with no purpose or use."
