Planning a wedding can be a very happy and stressful time. Although the bride and groom may try to plan the perfect wedding day, everything does not always go as well as planned. When planning your wedding, it would be wise to also plan for unexpected disasters. Here are some common wedding disasters and what you can do to avoid them as well.
Disaster #1: Members of the Wedding Party Get Sick
It is the day of your big wedding and you just received a call from one of the wedding party members saying he is very sick. You are not sure if he had too much to drink at the bachelor’s party or not but you are short one groomsmen.
Solution: When you select the wedding party members, you should select two alternate people to fill in just in case one of the bridesmaids or groomsmen can’t attend the wedding at the last minute. These people should attend the rehearsals just in case they are needed. If you end up short more than one person, then have the other bridesmaids and groomsmen double up to walk down the aisle.
Disaster #2: Your Cake Has an Accident
The day before your wedding, you get a call from the wedding cake maker stating that your cake was destroyed in freak bakery accident. You will be reimbursed for the cake but a new one will not be ready in time for your wedding tomorrow.
Solution: You need to have a backup wedding cake maker on reserve just in case you need a replacement cake. You may be required to pay more for a last minute cake but you will be able to enjoy eating your wedding cake on your wedding day. If you need extra money for last minute wedding expenses, you can apply for plaingreenloans online.
Disaster #3: The Photographer is MIA
Your wedding party and family are ready to take the professional wedding pictures before the wedding starts at noon. It is now 11:45 am and the photographer is nowhere to be found and he is not answering his cell phone.
Solution: If you have a friend or family member who is into photography, you should have him bring his camera as a backup just in case. You can also purchase disposable cameras for the wedding guests to use to take pictures before, during, and after the wedding. After the wedding is over, request that they leave the cameras for you to create a wedding scrapbook using the pictures they took.
These disasters along with the solutions should get you off to a good start on planning for unexpected wedding disasters. There may not be a great solution for each disaster, but you can still overcome it. Now what other wedding disasters will you plan for?
