Unfortunate Wedding Mistakes
Getting ready for one’s wedding can be an incredibly stressful time. There are so many things to keep track of; how many people to invite; where they’ll all sit; venue; decor; the list goes on and on! So many people stress themselves out trying to arrange the perfect day, they end up making some unfortunate mistakes. Here’s a few of the more common mistakes that you may wish to avoid if and when you plan for your own wedding.
A Planner’s Worst Nightmare: Forgetting a Guest
There is nothing worse after spending months planning a wedding than realizing too late that you neglected someone! Whether it be a family member or a close friend, you can just about guarantee that they will never let you forget it! Years will be spent apologizing and sympathizing with the one whom you forgot. Never mind that it was your wedding and your special day; if you forgot someone who considers themselves worthy enough to be invited, it will be a mistake that you will remember for the rest of your married life!
Not Accounting for the Weather
Planned the perfect outdoor wedding? That’s great! Just don’t forget that nature may choose not to smile down on you when the time comes! Countless outdoor weddings have been planned without a backup plan in case of rain. All the guests turn up in their gorgeous gowns and their handsome suits only to have them ruined by a downpour of rain! Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the bride and groom still had the day of their lives; but, when it comes down to it, we all feel much happier when we’re nice and warm, don’t we?
Venue Service Issues
For those of us who are just not cut out to plan everything all by ourselves, we may choose to hire out a venue that specializes in making the décor and table arrangements for us. There is nothing wrong with this; an unfortunate mistake to make in this situation is to neglect checking the reviews of said venue. If you hire someone or a company to plan most of your wedding for you, the worst result you can imagine is that the company you hired is simply not cut out to plan out a nice wedding! When that happens, all you have to do is go up to your Mum and listen to her singsong “I told you so, dear!”
I’m Late; I’m Late for a Very Important Date!
If you really want to make a horrible mistake at your wedding, the best way to do that would be to turn up after it already started! Nothing makes a wedding officiator cringe more than a late bride or groom. It doesn’t matter how much planning you put into your wedding; if you aren’t there, it’s not going to help! This is especially valid if you are the groom. I guarantee if you, as the groom, are late for your own wedding, your bride will never let you forget it!
