Although you have planned your nuptials for months, and have severally gone over the details, this does not guarantee a trouble-free marriage ceremony. There are still a number of things that could go wrong, and when they do, you need to be ready to tackle them head-on. Let’s discuss some common marriage ceremony misfortunes and some tips on how to keep them from ruining your nuptials.
Wedding vendors not showing up
You have planned everything, including hiring the most appropriate reception and banquet hall in Calgary, and also hired the best wedding vendors to execute the dream of your nuptials. But could there be anything worse than some of your wedding vendors, for instance the cake vendor or food caterers, not showing up on your big day, and subsequently switching off their phones? Sometimes, it might too late at this juncture to look for a plan B.
Don’t pay any of the vendor fees in full. It is recommended to leave a small percentage, for example 40%, to be paid to them on the wedding day. This way, they will still have some motivation to show up on the big day. To guarantee your peace of mind, simply engage the services of a wedding planner or coordinator who would be in touch with the vendors before the wedding and even on the wedding day. This wedding expert ensures things such as outdoor tents, reception or banquet hall are all set up before the wedding. All in all, a reliable wedding planner touches base with all the vendors on days leading up to the wedding.
In most cases, every single wedding detail is hinged on the number of guests you expect at your wedding. From the size of your reception hall and cake, to the number of seats and amount of food, all these details must all be planned in advance. But then, there could be guests who show up uninvited. This leads to all sorts of problems, including having invited guests milling around due to shortage of seats, people ending up going hungry, and so forth.
Have an invite-only kind of a wedding where each of your guests receives an invite that must presented at the reception hall entry so as to be allowed in. And while at it, remember to indicate clearly on the invite that the card allows in only one person.
For many months leading to the big day, you have obsessed over every small décor detail and have discussed the same with your vendor. You have selected your wedding flowers, looked at color swatches, shared photos of centerpieces, and even narrowed down on designs that make your heart sing. Unfortunately, as you walk down the aisle, you notice red draping instead of the fuchsia you had agree on. And on the flowers, didn’t you agree on hydrangeas? Why then are there carnations all over the place?
Much as you have shared photos of your wedding dream, and discussed your ideas in great detail time and again, it is recommended that you arrange for a mock setup with your décor service provider. Ask him or her to show you things such as draping he or she intends to utilize and the actual hall decorations. This way, you can then sleep easy knowing that you and your wedding décor vendor are reading from the same script.
As much as you will try to cover all the bases, there are still a number of things that could go wrong at your nuptials. The best way to go around all unexpected issues is to be well prepared, and work with trusted wedding vendors to minimize unpleasant surprises to the minimum.
