Disasters at a wedding are possible (as you read it, accept it), but we all want our day to be perfect.
Although having a wedding without setbacks is practically impossible (unless you hire a super professional wedding planner, of course), there is some disasters you could avoid by taking certain precautions. So take out your notebook and write point by point.
stains on your dress
Ask one of your ladies to carry a disaster kit: this should contain a needle and thread, coarse salt, mineral water, vodka and laundry soap. If you spill red wine on your dress, run to the bathroom and put a layer of salt on top of the stain. Once the salt has absorbed the wine, rinse with a mixture of mineral water and salt. If the stain is already dry, pour a little vodka on it, then rinse with soap and water.
Like in a scary movie, you open your eyes after your makeup session and discover that you look horrible. To avoid this, Talk to your makeup artist about the effect you want to achieve and show them examples. It is very important that you carry out a test session; yes, it will cost you more, but it is an expense that is well worth it. These are other things you shouldn’t save on.
your heel breaks
You can try to repair it, but maybe it’s better to carry a spare pair of shoes or some cute flats, perfect for hours of dancing. If you are stubborn in using the same ones you can stick the heel with epoxy glue, but keep in mind that it will take a couple of hours to be ready.
the music does not come
Horror! The reception is about to start and your DJ, not even his lights. Have a plan b: Make sure you put together a good playlist on your iPod and ask ahead of time who could lend you some powerful speakers. And of course, keep a list with the contact details of your suppliers on hand.
This is one of the worst fears of every bride, and also one that often comes true. Check the weather forecast about two days before your weddinga; if there is a possibility of rain, do not hesitate to hire a tarpaulin. Check out these tips to get the most out of a rainy wedding.
you get a huge pimple
Murphy’s Law could make an appearance that day. First of all, leave him alone! You could make the situation worse. Make sure you hire an experienced makeup artist: he will know what to do in this emergency.
An awkward guest arrives
For situations like this, Appointing someone you trust to take charge is a great idea. Ask that if someone unwanted shows up (like an ex you don’t want to be around), politely ask them to leave. If he manages to make you not even know what happened, much better!
food is late
Please: do not risk hiring a banquet that has not been personally recommended by someone. Only a serious company will ensure you a professional service like the one you deserve. Read here how to avoid being a victim of wedding fraud.
The priest does not arrive
If you’re having your wedding out of town, make sure a friend or family member picks up the father and drives him to the reception. If the priest does not arrive at your wedding, ask a family member or friend to officiate an impromptu mass. It will not have religious value, but it will have symbolic value, and it will surely be very emotional!
One of your guests gets “bad drink”
Do you remember that video of a very drunk bridesmaid? If you see any of your guests overdrinking, ask someone you trust to talk to them and politely ask them to leave. Surely it is not only uncomfortable for you, but also for the rest of your guests.
