Every woman wants her wedding day to be perfect, and also be the best day of her life. Sadly, the pressure of pulling off to perfection usually contributes to the rise of stressed-out brides.

According to a survey carried out on 1,000 newly married women by an online gift retailer showed that four in ten got 'fiercely competitive' when planning their day, while an even larger number wanted their nuptials to be better than their friends.

Other factors like unpredictable weather, a misbehaving best man, the happiness of bridesmaids and difficult seating plans also added to the pressure.

Below are top 15 causes of stress for brides-to-be:

  1. Bridesmaids complaining about dresses

  2. A misbehaving best-man

  3. Unwanted wedding guests

  4. Mother-in-law taking over

  5. Family politics due to step-parents

  6. Not wanting guests to get bored

  7. Negative comments about bride's choices

  8. Bridesmaid outshining the bride

  9. Too many children coming to the wedding
