Top 4 Wedding Disasters and How to Avoid Them


Dear soon-to-be brides, we know that your wedding is supposed to be one of the most special days of your life. But, what if someone’s misdemeanour or some minor catastrophe threatens to ruin it? At times, unforeseen circumstances can give way to a few disasters, despite all the meticulous planning and n-number of checks. Here are a few common wedding disasters which every bride needs to be prepared for. Let us also give you tips to find your way out of them.

Disaster 1- A drunken brawl breaks out

Wedding is a time of celebration and merriment. But sometimes, too much celebration can take a wrong turn for you. We are all aware of those rowdy relatives and friends who just cannot handle their drinks. Well, what if a couple of tipsy guests are about to ruin your D-day? Don’t let them.

Prevention: Well, you can prevent this situation by asking your bartender to keep on tab on people who are drinking too much. Ask him to water down their drinks and slip them a bit of lemonade or coffee once in a while.

Cure: If a brawl has already started, ask one of your brothers or friends to handle them. They can take such people out for some fresh air and can help to get the matters solved calmly. You can also keep a few helpers (read: bouncers) around who can take care of the security as well as drunk guests.

Disaster 2- Unexpected guests turn up

You have made plans for 250 guests to turn up for your wedding. But, what happens when 300 turn up?

Prevention: Include RSVP notes in your invitation card and request all your guests to either call you up or return the note, marking the number of people they would be bringing along. If you think that would seem too frugal, then always ask your caterer to prepare extra food for at least 25-30 extra guests.

Cure: If 25 odd extra guests have turned up at your wedding, there is no point in stressing out. Don’t let something so small ruin your day. If you are worried about gate-crashers, then hire a security guard to check the invites of the guests. You can also give them a list of names of your guests. This way, you can make your wedding secure from gate crashers.

Disaster 3- Pimples!

You have got the best wedding dress, best photographer and best makeup artist to make you look absolutely perfect on your wedding day. But, even a tiny little blemish can wreak havoc on your wedding day.

Prevention: Take a vow to stay away from oily and spicy food before your wedding. Have a strict beauty and skin care regime and follow it daily.

Cure: If you see a pimple protruding on your beautiful, spotless face in the morning then here are some simple tips to get rid of it. Ice can work wonders on a pimple. Take some ice cubes in a cloth, and apply this on the area. You can use toothpaste as well. Just apply some menthol toothpaste on the zit and keep it on for a few minutes. Then wash you face to see a clear skin. Also, hire a good makeup artist who can help you cover up the affected area.

Disaster 4- Your dress gets stained

You have got the perfect wedding outfit. It suits you beautifully and would make your guests go ‘wow’. But, what if you or someone accidentally spills something on your dress?

Prevention: First of all, be very careful when you eat or drink anything during your wedding. It is best to stick to safe, colourless drinks like lemon juice, water or soda. Stick to finger foods and stay away from dips or sauces of any kind. Also, make sure you have your best friend besides you to make sure that no other guests or any kids get near you with greasy and dirty hands.

Cure: Keep some club soda with you. It is an amazing on-the-spot cleaner. Sprinkle some club soda on it as it is an amazing on the spot cleaner. Also, go to the wash room, and rub a little bit of liquid soap and the water to make it go away. Do not try this, if you have a turmeric stain on your dress as wetting it will make it only worse.
