It’s your wedding day! It is the day you have been waiting for and it’s finally here! We know that you probably have butterflies in your stomach because of all the excitement. We know that no matter what, you will think about your wedding day and love every moment, and even laugh at the moments that you thought would ruin the day.
If you are just about to get married, congratulations! Making sure your big day will go smoothly can sometimes go beyond the wedding day timeline, so make sure to anticipate any issues that may arise on the big day.
You have found that perfect wedding dress so let’s make sure you are prepared for any challenges that may arise….
If your dress happens to be too small, too big or rips, make sure that you have an emergency sewing kit with you including safety pins, white thread, needles of different sizes and white chalk. Yes, chalk! Chalk can help hide any wedding day stain and no one will notice!
More times than not, the wedding rings will come in on time for your perfect day! However, sometimes weather or other events may cause a delay in the delivery. If your rings are not here in time for your wedding it will be okay, I promise! You can ask someone you admire to borrow their ring for the ceremony and when the rings come in, you can exchange them. You could also use a different ring of yours with meaning, like a class ring.
If the ring happens to be too small, do not try to put the ring on. You should only put the ring on as far as it will go without it resisting. If by accident the ring gets stuck, keep calm and do not try pulling the ring off. This will cause your finger to swell. Instead, you can get some floss and wrap it around your finger as close to the stuck ring as you can. This should allow for the ring to be slid off.
This has happened to a bride here at Pats Peak. Luckily the bride’s guests knew this trick and passed on this information to us in case it even happened to anyone else!
Justice of the Peace– If they are missing, you probably won’t get someone to legally marry you that day, but you can recruit a guest with strong speaking skills to stand in. You can go down to city hall in the next few days to get officially married but don’t let that get you down; you are here to celebrate your love!
DJ– Make sure to bring a computer/tablet and know the logistics of the room. Many venues will allow you to set up your computer to their sound system so you can play music all night long. Before your big day, ask the wedding venue if you would need any special cords, just in case!
Photographer– Ask your guests to capture the day for you instead. Now-a-days with cellphones, everyone would be taking these photos anyways. You can always schedule a photo session at a later date for photos in your dress. It will give you another opportunity to get that gorgeous dress on!
Florist– You can go to a local store to purchase fake flowers or you can buy baby’s breath. It is simple but beautiful and won’t cost a fortune at the last minute.
No matter what happens, your wedding day will be perfect!
