Wedding Preparedness

When things are going right at your wedding, count your blessings. There are few and far weddings that run to perfection. There will always be at least one thing that does go wrong. Be forewarned about this fact and learn how to overcome these situations.

The weather is a major factor in determining the untimely misfortunes of many weddings. Whether it is winter, spring, summer or fall, Mother Nature likes to upset many couple’s wedding day. Being proactive and having a backup plan can alleviate the harshness of inclement weather. If you are planning on having an outdoor wedding, make sure it can be quickly changed to an indoor wedding. If you are getting married in the winter time, make sure you have back up plans in case of a blizzard. Rain and snow have sabotaged many weddings, plan on it and know how to handle the situation.

Missing wedding party members can also become a problem. It happens, people are supposed to be performing a specific function during your wedding and they either are not up to the task, or don’t even show up. Now hopefully your closest friends and family will not disappoint you when you need them most, but it does happen. There really is no way to predict situations such as these, but if you are inviting a person that is less than reliable, be prepared for the worst and it will usually make everything better in the long run.

The hired professionals that are in charge of making everything run smoothly can also throw a wrench into your precious day. Make sure that you always hire companies or people that have good reputations and get a list of references of work that they have done before you hire them. You will be putting a lot of trust in these strangers to make your day one that will be unforgettable. Hiring on the cheap can tend to lead to that result. Remember that you get what you pay for.

Make sure that your venue has a good reputation as well. The local VFW can be a good choice for many, but when it comes to shelling out big bucks for your reception, make sure they know what they are doing. This is a once in a lifetime event that you do not want to get screwed up. Plan ahead for every foreseeable disaster and plan accordingly
