Disasters happen and sometimes you cannot avoid them. That being said, there are times when disasters are completely avoidable, and if you prepare for your big day properly, you should be able to make your day as perfect as possible.
Wedding Suppliers Cancel
There is nothing worse than getting a call from your wedding vendors, saying that they have to back out at the last minute.
This is why choosing the right person to work with is so important. A good wedding planner can come in very useful here as they will usually have a list of suppliers who they know they can count on if you do need a last-minute reinforcement.
It is also important for you to have a contract in place, so you know if someone does back out, you know that you are able to find another solution. Finding vendors who have insurance will also help you out greatly.
A wedding planner can also help you to choose and source your wedding outfit too, so whether you need blue wedding ties for your groom’s party or flowers for your bridesmaids, you can count on them to help you out.
Hiring Family and Friends
If you have a sister who is an aspiring florist or if you have a friend who wants to be a photographer, then this is great. You might be tempted to get them involved with the wedding as it will save you a lot of money.
That being said, it may be that the photographer did not produce the photos that you wanted or that they are simply blurry or even overexposed.
You probably feel somewhat awkward complaining about this, so it does help to try and make sure that you either hire a professional or that you see plenty of examples of their work before the big day. Never take their word for it.
You Get a Spot
You may feel as though there is nothing that can be done about getting a spot or a zit on your big day.
That being said, if you avoid getting a facial or if you can avoid getting a beauty makeup trial done beforehand then this should help you to keep your skin clear.
If you can, get a make-up trial done a few months before as this determines if you are going to have a reaction to any products, so you can avoid any last-minute disasters.
Food and People’s Dietary Needs
Your food and beverages are really the two top elements when it comes to your wedding day.
Your guests will always remember how well they ate, so you have to choose the right food if possible.
Imagine how awful it would be if you find out that your caterer does not cater to guests who may be vegetarian, or that you have a guest who suddenly feels unwell because they have allergies and that you served them something with peanuts in it.
Little things like this can be avoided, with a bit of time, care and attention, so put in the work beforehand.
