Wedding Day Disasters of Real Life Couples

Every couple wants their wedding day to be nothing less than perfect. But, no matter how much ever you plan and organise, yet something or the other might just go wrong on your D-day. It could be something as small as the priest not reaching on time or something as big as unexpected rains ruining the arrangements. Well, some real life couples have shared their wedding day disasters with us and we would like you to learn some lessons from them. So, here are some of the ‘oops’ moments that might happen on your big day:

Wedding Dress Blunders

Last minute alterations for perfect fit of the bridal outfit are common. But, what if your dress gets exchanged with someone else? Aarti Singh was in for such a shock. She brought her wedding dress from her hometown in UP, got the fittings done and came to Delhi where the wedding was to take place a day later. While unpacking, she realised the dress was not hers! It was similar to the one she had bought and had got exchanged at the tailor’s shop. Remembering the incident, Aarti says, “After crying for hours, I decided to try on the lehenga and mercifully, it fit me alright. It just required a few alterations that were done immediately.”

Dress malfunction may not be just for the brides. It was both hilarious and embarrassing for Gaurav Sharma when during the ceremony he felt the churidaar of his sherwani loosening a bit. He soon realised that the naada had broken! “I freaked out at first, but kept calm and quickly rushed to the washroom,” he confesses now laughing at that moment.

Venue Trouble

The wedding venue looked gorgeous and the hosts were all set to welcome the guests, when heavy rains came unannounced at a couple’s wedding. The arrangement was all outdoors and nothing could be done to save it last minute. We suggest that keeping an indoor backup space at least for the main ceremony is a wise decision.

Also, do all the important checks before finalising a venue. Many little details often get overlooked. Like, at a reader’s wedding (names kept anonymous, on request) the bride arrived at the same time as the baraat reached the venue, just to realise that there was no back entrance leading her to the room where she was to sit in. She ultimately had to wait in the car for a long time and then quickly walk to the room in front of the guests!

Where is the…

…ring, dupatta, shoes, etc.? In the midst of all the careful planning and the wedding stress, it often becomes impossible to find the 'extra' carefully placed things at the last minute.

Shailesh S. remembers the commotion just before he left for his ring ceremony. His mother could not find the engagement ring. “The entire atmosphere was tensed and everyone panicked,” he says. She ultimately found it somewhere in her cupboard, but there was a long delay before they could finally leave for the venue. Perhaps, it is a good idea to make a secret note of where all things are placed!

Makeup Issues

Dear brides-to-be, nothing can prepare you for the horror of an overdose of makeup on your face. Also, makeup meltdown because of the temperature (or emotions) is not too uncommon. Nikita Gupta, shares her wedding day experience and says, “I had a summer wedding. Even with an indoor setting and all the air conditioning, my makeup had begun to come off even before the ceremonies began. It was quite embarrassing and I did not even have a backup makeup kit.” 

So ladies, it is a good idea to discuss the makeup quality and other details with your makeup artist beforehand. Also, always keep a backup kit along to tackle any makeup emergencies on the location.

Face the Music

Music plays a great role at an Indian wedding. We are not sure if it was deliberate or not, when chikni chameli played at one of our readers' wedding. While sharing her experience with us, Akanksha Malik says, “Everyone was stunned for a while because the entire moment of my entry into the venue became hilariously awkward with chikni chameli playing in the background.” Dear couples, it is best to have a discussion with your DJ or live band about the songs that need to be set for the wedding beforehand.

The list of things that can go wrong at a wedding is endless. If it is the peak wedding season, priests often get delayed or more than anticipated number of guests turn up to put a burden on the food and seating arrangements. While some things maybe unforeseen, yet it is quite possible to take care of a lot of others. We hope that our engaged couples can take a few lessons from these disasters that real couples have shared with us. If you have any such experience then do share it with us and others by leaving your comments below.
