We know you checked the weather predictions everyday ever since the wedding date got finalised, but when it comes to judging nature, you cannot be a hundred per cent sure, can you? So, a bright sparkling sun on an otherwise cloudy afternoon set up or rains on an outdoor set-up can completely ruin your reception.
And, when you are about to wear it just before your reception is going to begin, the creases on the gown, thanks to the hanger folds can leave you in a fix!
The same date but the wrong month! Happens all the time, buddy! Imagine you reach your venue to witness another gathering in progress!
That’s the worst thing that can happen to any bride. The best thing to do in such a situation is to keep your cool and try to camouflage the torn part. What is even better is to have an alternate ready!
They rip apart the flowers, jump on your decorated sofas with messy shoes and shift the carpet or eat a bite each from all desserts. Man, do you need patience in a situation like this? Yes, yes you do!
You know those friends and relatives for whom weddings functions are another name for getting drunk and talking rubbish, behaving in an uncivilised manner and making you and your guests uncomfortable? Yes, we are sure you have met atleast one person like this!
Here's how you can be the guest everybody loves at any party. You will thank us for this list!
And, not only is your dress stitched to a length including your 5-inch heels, but also your husband is more than a few inches taller than you! Just for the worst-case scenario, keep a pair as a spare.
You thought that a full moon night with a million stars in the sky and just a few lights would give your wedding a surreal charming effect. In reality though, your guests can hardly recognise each other’s faces!
Because when you went for the food tasting, you visited the caterer’s restaurant where food is made in small quantities and will obviously taste good, whereas actually, you should have tasted the food at one of the wedding events organised by the same caterer before your gathering.
You invited only the family but they brought along some houseguests who are staying at their place with them. What do you do now? How do you seat them? How do you feed them? Well, for such a situation, make sure that the caterer arranges for some extra plates and chairs.
So now that you are aware of all the unexpected things that could manage to screw up your reception, make a note of them along with possible solutions, to have an uninterrupted function for yourself, which only gives you memories, no troubles!
