Your wedding is supposed to be a joyous day that you can remember for the rest of your life. However, there are times that not everything is perfect at a wedding and you need to pull a few strings to get everything off without a hitch.

When you find yourself in the midst of a wedding day disaster, take a breath and try out a few of these tips. They probably won’t be enough to fix a major snafu, but they will likely solve most of the most common issues that are usually seen by brides on their big day.

The Dress Doesn’t Fit!

Alterations

One of the best ways to battle this is by trying the dress on the night before your big day. This will give you time to prepare and make any adjustments that may be needed. If you find that your dress doesn’t fit quite right and you are unable to make major alterations at this point, there are a couple of quick fixes that you can rely on.

If your dress is too small, you can zip it up as far as it will go and use fishing line to keep the zipper in place. You can then hide it by using ribbons, flowers or your veil to cover it up. On the other hand, if you find that your dress to large, use safety pins to make it fit better. You can work your magic by hiding the pins under your arm.

Something is Spilled on your Dress

Wedding dresses were made in the worst color possible when it comes to showing dirt and stains and even though everyone is careful, disasters do happen. The best thing to do when you are getting married is to make sure that you obtain the fabric care guidelines from the store where you purchase your dress.

However, if you do find yourself in a jam, there you should dab the area with a white cloth. Begin at the outside and work your way to the middle of the stain. Next you can apply a small amount of club soda on the stain and continue to dab it until the stain is removed. Finally, use a blow dryer that is set on low to dry the spot again. If there are signs of the stain that are still remaining, you can use white chalk or talcum powder to cover it up.

You wake up with a facial blemish

Every bride wants to look beautiful on her big day and waking up to find a huge red pimple on her face can be devastating. However, you should avoid picking at the spot and apply an ice cube instead. This will help to ease the swelling and redness so that you will be able to hide it with concealer and makeup.

We forgot the Rings!

You may find this surprising, but this does happen regularly. The bride may think the groom has them or vice versus or they may have been entrusted to the reliable best man, but whatever the reason they are now not available. Even though it may be difficult to handle the fact that you won’t be able to use the rings that you have chosen for your special day, try not to panic too much.

Instead, see if you can borrow your parent’s rings or another couple who you admire. More than likely they will happy to oblige and you will have a special ‘something borrowed’ to use for your wedding. If you are concerned about the pictures that you will not be able to take, see if your photographer will allow you to take a quick picture another day when you do have your rings available.

Conclusion

No wedding is completely without a few mishaps or miniature disasters. With emotions running high, it would be easy to let a small issue blow up into a huge ordeal. However, if you plan for these minor things to happen, you will find that your day is much less stressful and you will not have the worries that you would have had if you had not come prepared.

    You’ve made some good common sense suggestions here, but I think the overriding message of this post is “don’t panic”. If you get yourself into such a tizzy that little things become huge, you’re likely to ruin your day. Try to stay calm and keep things in perspective, and above all don’t forget your sense of humor. If you can laugh in the face of disaster everyone else will too.
