In planning a wedding, you can never be too ready. No matter how much you comb through the details over and over again, expect little (or possibly massive) slip-ups on the day itself. But not to worry, we got you covered with foolproof Plan B’s that will help save the day.
- Go an extra mile
Don’t be scared to splurge on your special day as it only happens once. Back-up plans may get you to spend a little extra but nothing beats a calm and contented mind as you get ready for the most treasured moment of your life.
- Rain, rain go away
But what if it won’t? The most frustrating thing is a bad weather on a supposedly happy day. Thankfully, wedding venues offer an indoor alternative that comes with your wedding package. If not, most provide tents that are big enough to house your whole entourage. Discuss with your stylist days before the event on how to make the best of the situation so you can still celebrate in style, minus the dark clouds and downpour.
- Yes to a second dress (and heels)
Wardrobe malfunctions are a nightmare! Before facing your guests, make sure everything fits perfectly – not too loose that it will fall off and not too tight that you can’t breathe. You need to be able to enjoy your day without fussing over your bridal gown. While you’re at it, be kind to your sole and swap those killer heels with a pair of comfortable sandals or sneakers during your after-party and dance the night away.
- Kiss and touch up
Stack a couple of handy beauty items that will help you refreshed all day. Face mists are famous for its cooling effect. Lipsticks now have a long wear formula that you don’t need to touch up too often. Dab on powder and deodorant to avoid the sticky and hot feeling from wearing your dress. Prepare cotton buds to erase makeup mishaps. Be sure to get enough sleep the night before so you’ll be a glowing ball of energy on your special day.
- Bridesmaids in waiting
Your bridesmaids are just as excited as you are and they’ll do anything to help you. So, take advantage of that and make to-do lists to make your wedding easy peasy. Don’t hesitate in giving them things to do, it’s totally okay.
No wedding is ever complete without a photographer to document how wild and fun and incomparable it was. But is that really enough? Ask your guests to take as much snapshots of the event and tag you on all social media. Create official hashtags to make the search easier. Most hashtags are getting quirkier nowadays with the names of the bride and groom combined together to make one ultimate witty pun.
- Dance to another beat
Technical problems are sometimes unavoidable which instantly kills of the vibe. Keep the party going by doing a tech rehearsal a few hours before the ceremony. In the event that your DJ failed to come to your wedding or just don’t get your musical style, keep a folder of the songs that your hips sway to. Music streaming apps are also available and can customize your song selections.
- Not so fast and furious
Most brides are turning to vintage cars for their bridal vehicle but let’s be honest, they break down sometimes. Ask a mechanic to do a routine check-up before letting it hit the road. It would also help to have that mechanic present on the day, just in case. To make sure that you can attend to your own wedding, keep another car at a distance so you can seamlessly get to your destination. Nobody wants a missing bride.
Now that you are all set, go ahead and be a worry-free bride and seize your moment!
