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.

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.

Wedding day disasters can be averted, and if you can use these tips to prepare yourself the chances are you’ve got yourself covered.
