First of all, DON’T PANIC! It's not a problem. Below are a few things that haven't gone to plan at weddings I've been involved in, & the ways in which they were dealt. Of course, I'm not trivialising your feelings & need for it all to be perfect, merely pointing out there are quick & simple ways to address the issues. Anything else you think of, please do let me know, let's work on them together. Bxx
It’s raining? Traditionally rain on your big day is lucky! It also provides some great atmospheric wedding photos. Why not provide some personalised umbrellas if you’re getting married outdoors?
Perhaps some of the details are the wrong colour - for example, the cake ribbon, the floral centre pieces or chair sashes? Only you will notice. Don’t let it spoil your day, enjoy yourself and follow up with the relevant vendor afterwards to discuss if applicable compensation.
Has a family member or friend made too much of the alcohol that's available? A quiet word with your wedding planner or venue manager & they will move them to a side room with a strong coffee, & gentle coercion to sober up.
Depending on what's gone wrong, the chances are that the guests won't notice, so it's not worth worrying yourself about.
Whatever you think is a problem, it's NOT insurmountable. As long as there's you & your beloved, promising your best to each other, then everything else is extra.
This is maybe the point to once again reiterate the importance of employing a wedding co-ordinator. With their help, all these hiccups can be dealt with without you even noticing.
