After months of planning, your wedding day is finally here. From ceremony to reception, everything is organized. But, things can still go wrong. It’s always good to think about the “what if’s” and prepare for them ahead of the wedding day.
Here, compiled of lists of things that can go wrong on your wedding day and how to deal with them.
Not having one of your vendors show up on the big day is scary! The best way to avoid this is to enlist a reputable vendor in the first place. If your vendor is still a no-show, you can have your maid of honor or a family member come to save the day. Your loved ones wouldn’t like seeing your big day fall apart, so they’ll obviously do whatever they can to help out.

You have invested months into planning your wedding gown. Now, what if a clumsy guest steps on it? The last thing you want on your wedding day is something bad happening to your gorgeous wedding dress. Nothing could make you burst into tears quicker than that. Luckily, the fix for this huge problem is surprisingly easy. Always prepare a small roll of fabric and the "urgent" sewing kit will do the job.
Perfecting your bridal hair and makeup takes a considerable amount of time and definitely an awful lot of money. But no matter how flawlessly finished it looks at the start, a few hours later, your lovely hair will fall out of your up-do and your makeup will start to melt! Save yourself from this disaster and have one of your bridesmaids available for touch-ups throughout the day.
Your wedding shoes may look gorgeous but remember that wedding shoes are for being uncomfortable and painful. Because you’re going to be on your feet for several hours, greeting guests and then you have to dance the night away also, you should get yourself a pair of comfortable shoes. If you feel that your old trainers are the most comfortable pair of shoes you have ever put your feet in, go for it! No one is going to notice what shoes you're wearing under your wedding dress anyway.
Bad weather can be a huge headache and can have a negative effect on everything from your lovely wedding gown to your reception. Unfortunately, there’s no fix for an unfavorable weather. If it’s going to rain, it’s going to rain. Be that as it may, you can still prepare for it. Check the weather forecast as early as three days out from your wedding date. And if there’s a possibility for bad weather, get yourself some umbrellas. There’s a silver lining to bad weather, though.
