Every perfect wedding, wedding planner and bride has a secret. That secret is usually about a minor wedding disaster that has been averted, as the odds of certain things going wrong when you add alcohol, families and strong personalities together is almost a guarantee! The best way to prepare for a disaster is to expect the unexpected, so follow this guide on how to cope with the most common wedding day calamities.
The odds of a drunken best man are enormous. In fact there’s a 10/1 chance that by the time the best man’s speech rolls round he will have had far too much to drink, and his speech won’t quite be as heart-warming as you predicted. There are of course several ways around this and blackmail is usually the most effective, but others include serving non-alcoholic champagne, rubbing spirits around the rim of a glass but not actually adding any, or getting him to speak very early on!
Finding great wedding DJs and photographers is a rewarding as winning the jackpot at www.mobilecasino.mobi but many weddings suffer the scourge of arrogant DJs and photographers who think they are entitled to a full meal, the first dance and as much of the bar as they can carry. You can avoid this by ensuring you have a strict agreement as to what is expected and if you are feeling unsure, only pay a deposit upfront-nothing speaks louder than a pay cut!
The odds of a wedding cake disaster are huge, especially at a destination or outdoor wedding where the elements come in to play. Many a cake has been rescued from certain disaster and often clever camera angles have disguised a handprint, collapsed side or drooping layer. A fake cake is a great fix and many brides settle for one real layer topped with realistic looking foam boxes to ensure everyone can have their cake and eat it.
A wedding schedule has the propensity to go awry and despite timetables, schedules and threats to the bridesmaids, the day runs late. A schedule should be created with plenty of buffer time and if disaster does strike, a suitable time-cushion can prevent cold canapés and flat champagne and keep tempers and tantrums in check.
