7 Common Wedding Disasters (And How to Avoid Them)

Everyone knows your wedding is supposed to be the happiest day and most stress-free day of your life. So rest assured, because we’ve listed seven of the most common wedding day dilemmas and how you can avoid them.

Wedding Dilemma #1: Wedding Pro No Show
The last thing you’ll want to do on the day of your wedding is track down a missing wedding cake or put out an APB for your florist. Days before your wedding, be sure to give your wedding pros the correct names and addresses of your venues to deliver the goods. Be sure to submit accurate contact information for the vendors to your wedding planner or day-of coordinator, and your wedding coordinators should also have a document with cell phone numbers and ETAs of your wedding professionals to communicate as necessary.

Wedding Dilemma #2: Hairdo Horrors
It’s never a good idea to experiment with a new hairdo or cut right before your wedding. Schedule a trial run with your stylist a month prior to the wedding date to stagger cut and color services. Also, take a camera and any wedding hair accessories with you to the trial appointments to keep record of the looks you’re considering, and to get the best idea of the look that will be recreated on the day of.

Wedding Dilemma #3: Faulty Fittings

Always schedule wedding dress fittings in an appropriate timeframe. The first fitting usually takes place six weeks before the wedding day, with subsequent fittings closer to the wedding date as needed. Remember to bring in accessories such as shoes and foundation/ undergarments to get an accurate fit. Your final fitting should take place a couple weeks before the wedding, and should include pressing/steaming any wrinkles and a discussion on dress care tips should you (God forbid) accidently spill something on the gown.
