How to Avoid Some of the Most Frequently-Encountered Wedding Disasters

We don’t want to scare you, but even with all the excellent wedding planning in the world and even with a huge budget, accidents can still happen on your wedding day on the Eastern Shore.

What’s most important, though, is that you don’t simply accept the possibility of things going wrong – but that you also prepare for them and know how to deal with them in case these situations arise.

What are some of the most frequently-encountered wedding disasters and how to avoid/ deal with them? We have gathered some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

• Someone shows up with an uninvited plus-one. If you want to avoid this kind of situations, do make sure you specify clearly on the RSVP that only one person is invited and don’t leave room for any other name. Even so, some guests may not get the idea and they might still attend your wedding accompanied by someone. Since you cannot simply turn the plus ones away, it’s best to be prepared for this type of situations and have a few extra seats and servings of food available.
• Something happens to your wedding dress. This is a real nightmare, but it can happen: your dress could get torn when you put it on or when you dance, or it might even get stained (by your own doing or by someone else’s). This is why it’s really important to have a wedding dress SOS kit that includes a sewing kit, chalk (to hide stains), fabric glue or duct tape, and stain remover. Your Maid of Honor can help you fix the issue ASAP and you can get back to dancing and feeling amazing!
• One of the vendors cancels last minute. If you still have enough time to find and book someone else, do it. If you have a friend that can chip in and help you out, ask them. But in most situations, brides find out about their vendor cancellations at the very last minute (precisely because the nature of these cancellations is connected to events nobody can ever foresee). To make sure you’re covered in all kinds of situations, ask your vendor about their backup plan before you sign your contract with them – this will give you some peace of mind.
