As we all know, rain can ruin even the glossiest locks and prettiest frocks. But unfortunately the weather is completely out of our control, so rain or sun, there’s no knowing until the actual wedding day. Then again, a little rain on your wedding dress is meant to bring good luck…

Here are the top five wedding worries:

1. Bad weather

2. Stain on the dress

3. Car breaking down

4. Hair disaster

5. Flowers wilting

Now it goes with the story that the 1000 brides-to-be who participated were given a list of ten wedding nightmares and asked to choose which of these ten they feared the most. Because it would have skewed results, being jilted at the altar was deliberately omitted.

The survey was conducted by professional hair products retailer
