It is all couples’ dream to have the perfect wedding. That’s why wedding preparations start months before the big day. In the end, a beautiful wedding would offer lovely memories to remember for years to come. Of course, no one wants to have problems in their wedding. But, things happen and problems may occur on wedding days too. Don’t worry though, we compiled a list of suggestions to help you avoid potential wedding day problems...
Umbrella is a must
In today’s world where seasons no longer have specific characteristics even a shiny weather can surprise you with some rain. This is particularly true for spring months. If you are planning to wed in an outside venue make sure that the organizer bears the possibility of rain in mind. There should be an indoor hall ready for guests to quickly go into during a rainy scenario. When you don’t have that back-up hall, it’s inevitable to end up with messy hair and makeup, not to mention getting wet in the rain. If there is no back-up hall available, make sure that the venue has a retractable roof. In case there is also no such roof then you should arrange some small and big umbrellas to use if it rains.
Comfy loafers are another must
Standing on high heels all day long will put pressure on your legs, feet, and back area. This is also true for those who are used to wearing high heels. So it is better to switch to loafers after things like photo shoots are over.
Be careful with your hair and makeup!
Weather changes or constant mobility can leave you with messy hair and makeup on your wedding day. That’s why you should find a trusted hairdresser and book for a hair and makeup rehearsal to test lastingness. But still it’s best to have your makeup products with you on that day to avoid any unwanted surprises.
Go to all your appointments 1 hour in advance
Weddings are already stressful days. And photo shoots, makeup and hair arrangements, and many other factors just add to the stress. Even a single thing can cause a problem in the planned schedule. But if you go to your appointments one hour before what is actually scheduled you can eliminate the possibility of delays. In other words, if your photo shooting appointment is at 3pm then make sure to be there at 2pm. This way you wouldn’t be late for any of your appointments, and can enjoy a productive and fun day.
Stain remover wipes will be your savior
Some things are not discussed at all during such preparations. Among those things that no one wants to discuss or think about is the wedding dress or suit getting dirty. It will sure sadden both the bride and the groom if an unwanted thing happens to that gown or suit bought after a long search. For example, things can spill on them or they can get torn. So what to do in such cases? For spills make sure that you have stain remover wipes with you. And for splits and tears make sure that you have some pieces of fabric, needles, and black and white yarns.
Carry medication for cold and headaches
Temperature changes occur a lot on wedding days. And this heat change can cause stress, headaches, and cold for the bride and the groom. That’s why you should take a good rest before the wedding and eat healthy on the big day. But despite these measures you can still suffer from such health problems. So it will be good to have some medication with you. Yet, in serious cases you should definitely seek medical advice.
Watch out for alcohol consumption!
Unlimited alcohol is on the list of almost all weddings. But alcohol consumption needs to be kept under control. This is particularly important in wedding organizations with a fun crowd and music. This can sometimes lead to the wedding getting out of control. In order to avoid undesirable situations ask your close friends to take occasional walks around the venue and kindly warn the guests who may have drunk too much. In case of extreme situations those guests can be prevented from being served alcohol. What needs to be considered in such situations is whether the guest gets beyond that thin line between having fun and violating others’ personal spaces. You should be careful with that thin line. After all, a fun and lovely wedding to remember is all that matters.
