A new study has revealed that the biggest cause of anxiety for brides on their big day is the wedding dance. According to Hen Party Superstore's – who surveyed over 1,100 married and soon-to-be married people – the biggest cause of pre-wedding jitters for brides is being the centre of attention during their first dance.
Unsurprisingly, 82 per cent of those surveyed admitted to having some form of anxiety before their wedding day, but the factors men and women worried about were very different. While the biggest cause of concern for brides was the wedding dance, men were more worried about their best man making an embarrassing speech.
Thirty-five per cent of grooms admitted to feeling anxious about being left red faced after a speech, while 33 per cent were nervous about committing to one partner for the rest of their life. Other concerns for grooms were the weather ruining the big day, wedding guests not showing up and 19 per cent worried about their partner jilting them.
For women, the second biggest concern was the weather, followed by how they would look in the wedding photos, then how they would look in their dress and finally, the worry that guests wouldn't show up.
