The aggravating world of Murphy's Law says that, "whatever can go wrong will go wrong!"
Like any other other event, even those most meticulously planned, weddings can easily go wrong'
Here are a few things (in no particular order) that can go wrong at a wedding and how to fix/avoid them.
Wedding dress malfunction
I've seen this quite a few times. Brides often go on strict diets and extreme exercise routines to fit into their dream dress and all it takes is one button to pop or a zip to get stuck that causes a panic.
Bridemaids! That why you have them, to take care of you. They should always have an emergency sewing kit at hand. Just a few stitches to temporarily keep things together – at least long enough for the you to say “I do”.
Who cut wedding cake?
So the time arrived for the cutting of the cake. Hey...! where is the cake? The cake had mysteriously disappeared into the kitchen undergoing surgery. The hotel wedding coordinator begun the process of slicing the cake prior to the official cutting.
In this instance we were able to prop the two top tiers with a glass and change the angle of the shoot so as to hide the glass. Other options available: reduce the tiered cake to a simple one layer. Add fresh fruit and flowers to cover up dents, dings and missing pieces.
Not getting all the photos you want
Unfortunately, this disaster occurs quite regularly for a number of reasons. Whether you ran out of time or couldn’t find the relevant people for the must needed group shots when you require them.
Provide your photographer with a list of all the group shots you want taken. Also, designate some of your bridal party or ushers to help co-ordinate the guests you need for group shots.
This is often not about the bride and groom, but more about the person that's talking. Who wants to listen to you rabbit on for 20mins?
Give everyone a speech time limit. No longer than 10 minutes works well, depending on the number of speeches you have. Also, feed people first – they won’t thank you for a long speech on an empty stomach!
Hopefully, now that you’re prepared for everything that could possibly go wrong, you can start to look forward to your big day.
