Common wedding emergencies and how to handle them

 

baby-1323756_640

Every wedding includes hundreds of details. With so many big and small factors being part of this special day, there is a probability of at least one thing going against plan. From vendors and bridesmaids to guests and family, there are so many people involved. Although you are in charge, these several others have to all co-operate to make your wedding happen.

This is one of the reasons why couples hire wedding planners. They come with a lot of experience in planning weddings. They have already seen their fair share of problems, and know the quickest fix to all of them. Unfortunately, if you do not have a wedding planner on board, it is all up to you to make sure everything progresses smoothly.

Definitely brace yourself for a wedding emergency or two on the day. Prepare yourself in advance for every likely situation and you can still enjoy your big day despite any drama that unfolds.

Here is a compilation of the different likely glitches that happen at weddings. Fear not, for we have the solutions too. Although we advise you to read through the possible situations and prepare yourself with plans, remember that this is not to stress you out further. Keep those wedding jitters at bay, because forewarned is forearmed!

Is that a pimple?

Call it wrong timing, but zits do appear when you least expect them. Lack of sleep, proper nutrition and stress will all contribute to pimples that pop up close to the wedding day. If it is just a small pimple, it is best to conceal it with makeup. Before you apply makeup, put ice on the zit . This will reduce the size, redness and puffiness. Then cover it up with a smooth coat of concealer and then apply foundation. Don’t disturb the pimple too much and it will heal quickly.

The child attendants go on strike

Even the most well-behaved children may refuse to don the role of ring bearer or flower girl at the last moment. Some children dread the idea of walking down the aisle by themselves, when there are onlookers. Or in the case of a younger child, he or she may feel tired, hungry or sleepy. Prepare yourself for such a scenario when you decide to have children in your ceremony. If the child is frightened and refuses, you can ask one of her parents or a bridesmaid to escort her. If the child is too tired or fussy, think carefully about whether it is better to cancel the child’s role or proceed with it. It is better to prepare for such a situation in advance, so the child is comfortable and ready for the ceremony.

Wedding dress disasters

Your clear, white wedding dress, as beautiful as it is, is an invitation for disaster. So, take extra care once you are in it. Here are some of the likely issues you may face and the solutions to each of them.

Makeup stains: On a day when you have to wear makeup, there is every chance of it staining your gown. To avoid this, complete your makeup before you change into your dress, and then step into the gown without letting it brush against your face.

Should any makeup stain your dress, immediately blot the area with a towel. Don’t rub it at all. Use white chalk or talcum powder to cover up the stain as much as possible.

  • Oil stain: This could happen during the reception, when oil from your plate may drip onto your wedding dress. Don’t worry. Simply dab on some talcum powder onto the stain and let it set. It will soak up the moisture and the stain will disappear.
  • Wine stain: Soak up the wine from the dress with a blotting paper or cotton towel. Once you get it out, sprinkle talcum powder or chalk on the stain. Send the dress to the dry cleaners soon after the wedding, and they can prevent the stain from setting.
  • Ink: Tackle ink stains quickly with hairspray or rubbing alcohol. Spray it on the area and rub it off with a clean white cloth.
  • Ripped gown or veil: Use safety-pins, super glue or double-sided tape and attack the problem, based on what is most effective in the situation. Safety pins can hold buttons in place as well as attach torn pieces of fabric. If you have enough time and someone in your bridal party can quickly cover the damage with a thread and needle, ask for their assistance in restoring your gown.

Since your white wedding dress is very prone to stains, make sure you carry an emergency kit with all these essentials. You can then address the problem without delay rather than wait for the supplies. Either set up your own wedding emergency kit with the help of this article, or buy a complete emergency kit like the one here. 

Who is that arguing?

Tempers may soar and there is scope for  heated arguments when different personalities come together at a wedding. Such a scenario isn’t pleasant for the couple, nor the guests. So, don’t wait for an argument to settle on its own. Interrupt with a suitable distraction. Have a member from the wedding party split up the two people in the discussion with a good excuse. Make sure that they sit separately and don’t cross paths afterwards, so decorum is restored.

Rain, rain, won’t it ever go away? 

When you plan an outdoor wedding in spring or summer, there is every chance for a sudden shower. You should always have a Plan B in case Mother Nature decides to pour over your wedding. An alternate venue as backup is a wise option. Either have a tent or an indoor hall that you can quickly shift to, if needed. You should also arrange umbrellas at the venue for your guests to use in case of a light shower. You can always continue with plans as long as there isn’t heavy rainfall, and provided nobody is becoming wet. Or if you are a good sport, you can even enjoy the rain and make it a part of your wedding scenery. Just like these couples did! 

Your makeup melts in the heat

A definite risk at outdoor weddings. So, if your nuptials are at an open air venue, make sure you use waterproof makeup on the day. Instruct your makeup artist to use cosmetics that won’t smudge or run when you are outdoors. If you are doing your makeup yourself, invest in good quality waterproof makeup and stay away from oil based foundations. Before you apply makeup, it is a good idea to drag ice over your skin. This will close off the pores and improve chances of your makeup staying put.

Unexpected plus-ones

It is nothing short of a nightmare when your single friends turn up with company, and you do  not expect it. Inconsiderate that this may seem, it is still up to you to accommodate them in some way. Contact your caterer and the venue decorator, and ask them to get you extra chairs and plates of food. Unless the number is more than what you imagined, don’t worry too much about it. Don’t fret over how you would have to alter the entire seating arrangement for this purpose. Simply put them on a table where you can squeeze in an extra chair.

It looks like someone is about to faint at the altar

For some people, the pressure of walking down the aisle is more than you can imagine. Unless it i s the bride or groom, it isn’t a big problem if someone in the wedding party is feeling faint. Remember the emergency kit we mentioned about earlier? Have some smelling salts in it for this reason. These will alleviate the dizzy and nauseating feeling and help the person bounce back to normal. In any case, ask the person to sit down and relax, and continue with your wedding on schedule, unless there is a medical emergency.

What to do if someone is giving an inappropriate or unending speech at the reception

Not everyone hides from raising a toast at the wedding. In fact, there are few people who eagerly look forward to speaking more than just few words. Unless it is an unending speech or an inappropriate one that sounds embarrassing, there is no issue. If you notice the speech progress in the wrong direction and your guests are bored or shocked, it is a good idea to get your Maid of Honor or Best Man regain control of the situation. They can slowly interrupt to create a quick distraction, and ask for music. If you have a DJ, he ought to help you out in such a situation. With previous experience, he will have a good idea of how to break up the speech and get the party back on.

Your bridesmaid is late

When you pick bridesmaids, make sure they are reliable and responsible women. This way you needn’t stress over them on your wedding day. In case you have a friend who is a regular late-comer, prepare in advance. Ask your maid of honor to take charge, and make sure she has everything in place and on time. Or you can send reminders to her, so she doesn’t miss out anything she should complete. On the day of the wedding, give her a call just in case she forgets or is likely to slog. When a bridesmaid is late, it is best to ask the rest of the girls to help her dress up on time.

The DJ plays songs you do not like

Always share your favorite song list as well as a list of the songs that shouldn’t be played at your reception. This will allow your DJ or band to prepare for the event. Nevertheless, it is possible that he still picks a song that you do not like, but have missed adding to the list. Avoid this from continuing by designating a wedding party who will tell the DJ when the couple do not appreciate this song. Inform the DJ in advance about who this person is. This will avoid any confusion when the person you designate for the job walks up to him and tells him to halt.

Last minute vendor cancellation

Make sure you read your vendor contracts carefully, and clarify any likely gray areas. Explicitly ask about cancellations and last-minute emergencies. This will help you prepare in advance for the worst-case scenario. In any case, situations may occur when a cancellation is inevitable but the wedding must go on. First of all, check whether the vendor can still make it to the event or arrange for a replacement. If that is the case, slightly adjust the schedule to accommodate this change.

However, if it is an actual last-minute cancellation, it is best if you ask for assistance from the other vendors at your wedding. They will know many people in the wedding industry and may have the right contact who can handle the task at short notice. In any case, make sure that you have copies of the pictures and details of the plans you made so you can quickly help the new vendor understand your requirements. Also be flexible with your demands.Go with what can be done at such short notice, than be unbending about what you want to have.

Beside these common problems, there are many other issues that can go wrong at a wedding. Nonetheless, the day must go on. Keep yourself cool and ready for any hassle, with the help of this article here.

A guide to the different types of Flower girl dresses

Flower girls are precious little angels who add a touch of innocence to your wedding ceremony! Little girls dressed in beautiful dresses, and scattering flowers as they cruise down the aisle are absolutely enchanting. Although flower girls are not an essential part of the wedding party, the beauty that they bring to the ceremony is unbeatable. Hence, it is no wonder that many brides decide to have them at their wedding.

Since they are part of your wedding party, it is important that their outfits also match the theme of your wedding. You may not have as many options as with bridesmaids dresses, in flower girls dresses. Here are a few factors to consider when choosing them.

  • Your flower girls will typically be between the ages of 3 and 8. At this age, they are not old enough to manage a high-maintenance dress. So, choose one that is simple but effective.
  • Young girls grow quickly. Hence, it is best that you buy the dress closer to the wedding. This way you can ensure that it will fit her.
  • Comfort should be one of the most important factors when choosing your flower girl’s dress. Avoid dresses that are too long, too tight or too warm. This can irritate your flower girl and spoil her mood.
  • Don’t expect your flower girl to sit still and take good care of her dress, so she looks fresh at the wedding. Not all girls are capable of doing that at their age. So, choose fabric that is wrinkle free and you needn’t worry about her spoiling her dress.
  • Although the common practice is to choose a dress that is a miniature version of the bride’s outfit, this isn’t necessary. Your flower girl can have a dress that is colorful, matches the bridesmaids dress colors or in any way ties to the theme of the wedding. If you choose a white or ivory dress for your flower girl, consider adding accent colors that match the wedding color palette, with suitable accessories.
  • Flower girl dresses can be expensive. So, be mindful of the parent’s budget when you choose a dress. Also, it would be a good idea to pick a dress that can be used by the girl again, so she gets more use out of it.
  • If you have more than one flower girl, either dress them up in the same dress or mix and match styles, colors and features, just like you would in the case of your bridesmaids dresses.
  • If your flower girl isn’t comfortable wearing a party dress, have her dress up in an outfit with pants or divided skirts that match the bridesmaids dresses. It doesn’t really matter as long as it comes together with the overall look.
  • Don’t forget your flower girl’s accessories when planning her look. Simple and convenient pieces of jewelry are the best. You can also think of adorable accessories like flower crowns and pretty waistbands for that extra dainty touch.
  • Your flower girl’s dress should match the formality of the event. A fancy-looking dress would be appropriate at a formal function. For a casual, outdoor event or an informal wedding, light, airy dresses would be better.

Now that we have covered the essential points that you should keep in mind when choosing your flower girl dresses, let us take a look at the various dress styles that are available to choose from.

Fairy-tale flower girl dresses

If you have your heart set on a princess wedding gown, a fairy tale flower girl dress would go well with your outfit. These dresses are typically miniature versions of ball gowns, with embellishments like lace, beading and hand embroidery. The dresses are usually floor length, but you can also have them altered to just skim the ankles, so it is comfortable for your flower girl to move around. Although fairy tale dresses are typically available in white and ivory, you may also be able to find them in different colors also.

You may like to take a look at 582 and 578 from the Mori Lee flower girl dress collection, if you want a princess style dress.

Two-piece flower girl dresses

This is a versatile choice for brides who want to mix and match the top and skirt, to create the intended look. Here, the dress has a separate bodice and skirt, but when worn together, it will resemble a single dress. There are different options when you choose this alternative, and you can either have poufy flower girl dresses, or choose simple silhouettes that are easier to carry and comfortable to wear. The added benefit of a two-piece flower girl dress is that it allows you to mix and match different sizes, if your flower girl doesn’t really fit into a specific size. Thus, you can find a dress that fits her shoulders and her height correctly.

Full-length gown

Perfect for a formal wedding, these dresses are full-length, and extend just beyond the ankles to make sure it is comfortable for the little girl to carry it. Since it is a long dress, it is best to keep the details simple on it, so the bulk of the material isn’t overwhelming on the small frame. These dresses are usually created in A-line style, since this is easy to wear and looks good on most children. Full length gowns are available in color or white, and the skirt may either be pleated or plain. The dress shown here is from the Mori Lee collection, and features an empire waistline and sleeveless neckline.

Tea length dresses with poufy skirts

Very ornate and voluminous, this is a party dress style that is sure to look perfect at a formal ceremony. Usually fashioned in an A-line silhouette or ball gown style, the dress is characterized by the volume of its skirt. The fabrics used are net, tulle or organza, and sometimes it may feature a satin finish in the bodice and the lower layers of the skirt. Although the dress is short, it is still very effective as the skirt adds a dramatic overtone to the overall look. It is common to find the skirt gathered at various points and little flowers scattered at these gatherings for a beautiful effect.

A-line skirts

A-line dresses are a flower girl favorite, and can be either short or long. Like the name suggests, the dress silhouette resembles the shape of an A, with the top part fitted closely to the body, and the skirt flaring out into the shape of an A from the waistline. There may be a demarcation at the waistline with a sash or waistband, usually in a different color. When choosing this style, you can consider adding a waistband in your theme color to easily match it to the overall look. Many variations are possible with the humble A-line silhouette. This includes a dropped waist, draping on the bodice, embellishments along the skirt and many more options.

Pick-up skirts

Another style that instantly dresses up your flower girl, dresses with pick-up skirts are elaborate and stylish. Here the hemline is gathered and pushed upwards at regular spacing, along the length of the skirt. This is usually done in different tiers and that adds more texture and volume to the dress. This Mori Lee flower girl dress looks like it is bubbling with excitement, as it features a ruched skirt with several pickups along the length. The dark sash at the waist separates the bodice from the textured skirt.

Tiered skirts

Adding more volume to a buoyant skirt are tiered skirt styles that feature a layered arrangement of tiers. These make the dress very interesting. These are usually fashioned out of lace, tulle or similar soft fabrics, so it bounces along. For the tiers to be evident, the skirt has to be long, and so it usually ends at the ankles. Although the tiers are spectacular by itself, this dress may also feature other embellishments in the bodice or at the hemline. This is a dress pattern that will be loved by most little girls.

The Mori Lee 575 features three tiers, each of which is trimmed with a hint of dark color like red or black. The sleeveless dress is simply embellished with a bow at the waist, but it can be accessorized with a bolero-style jacket if desired.

Cap sleeves and short sleeve dresses

If you aren’t fond of the sleeveless feature that is common on flower girl dresses, you can consider dresses with sleeves. There are different sleeve lengths to choose from. These include cap sleeves, T-shirt sleeves and longer styles. The cap sleeve style is particularly endearing, especially when they are embellished with lace or hand embroidery. Short sleeves can also be done with lace, and this will help you match it to a vintage-inspired wedding theme.

The dress featured here is the G339 from the Aglaia collection. This dress not only has lace cap sleeves, but the pretty embellishments continue into a scalloped neckline and further into bodice and skirt  You may also like to check out the dresses here and here, done in similar styles.

Dresses with colorful accents

If you want your flower girl to be dressed with a little dash of color in her dress, you have two options—either choose colorful accessories like a sash or bow to go with her outfit. Otherwise, choose a dress that has just the right amount of color in it. Colors like red, blue and pink are easy to come by in flower girl collections. These dresses are usually in white, and have the hint of color done at the neckline, in the sleeves, waistline and in scattered embellishments.

 

The G3327 shown here is from the Aglaia collection, and is a beautiful dress in white, with red as an accent color. You can see how the red is kept to a minimum to just create the right impact without overpowering the white. Other white dresses with pretty accent colors in embellishments can be seen here and here.

Colorful flower girl dresses

If you wish to dress your flower girl in rich color, there are plenty of choices. From full-length dresses to shorter tea length dresses, these are available in a range of colors, designs and silhouettes. While colorful dresses are always attractive on young girls, ensure that the dress color goes well with the bridesmaids dress colors for a cohesive effect. Since you may not have as many color options as you have with bridesmaids dresses, you will have to choose from what is available or settle for the closest available color. Also consider the rest of the outfit like the shoes and other accessories. Make sure that they complement the color, so it doesn’t look weird together. A safe option would be to choose white or black shoes and socks, or those that match the color of the dress.

The Aglaia collection at Best for Bride contains plenty of colorful flower girl dresses. Most of them can be ordered in colors beside those shown in the pictures on our website. Shown here is the G3307 in a soft shade of blue, that is perfect for outdoor weddings in terms of silhouette, fabric and design. This dress has more embellishments and would be good for a formal ceremony,while it is also an in-between choice that would work for both a formal or informal wedding.

We hope this post has helped you understand the various options in flower girl dresses, for you to pick for your wedding day! This is just another detail that you have to plan, and it is easier than dressing up your bridesmaids. One factor in your favor is that it is almost impossible to dress your flower girl wrong. So, have fun choosing her dress.

Warmth with a lit-up centerpiece

Nothing makes a room more cheerful and glowing than candles, and this is one element you should incorporate into your décor. Candles are relatively inexpensive centerpiece accessories, but can quickly be dressed up with flowers, glass, fruits and anything else you can think of. They are versatile, as you will have plenty of choice in color, size, scent and appearances to choose from. Thus, crafting your own unique centerpiece will be easy, when you incorporate candles into the design. Place them in glass bowls and they will look spell-binding, as the glassy effect makes the warmth of the glow more pronounced. By choosing suitable colors for the candle-holders, you can achieve a colored glow that will add a pleasant note to the ambiance. So, bring in some festive cheer to your big celebration, by adding lots and lots of candles. With scented ones, you can also have the air smelling great and this will also linger on in the memories of your guests, when they think of your wedding. Soft scents like lavender, vanilla and lime are really refreshing, and will work for any season and weather.

Fancy table-settings

In a welcome deviation from the traditional table setting, you can have the table linen arranged in an unusual, but welcoming style. Here is a sample. The pretty dinner napkins do not need napkin rings, but are exquisite for the styling and the pattern they sport. The bold prints on the edges have been showcased beautifully, and focus is shifted to the design immediately. This simple addition to the table, makes it spectacular. So, it is not only cost-effective, but beautiful as well. Match the napkins to the table runner, which in this case is a rectangular table, and you have an easy but glamorous way to make your tables look beautiful.

Sparkling table settings

If the earlier style is too refined or serious for your taste, consider adding a dose of glamour to your reception tables with subtly scintillating table cloths. Anything with crystal or rhinestone details is immediately festive, and the bling on the table serviettes achieve this effect here. Club it with a deep, dark palette, like the purple used in intense doses here, and you have a vibrant and lively scene. The silver charger plates add to the brilliance of the glittering table covers and overall the setting has a wonderful designer aesthetic. The best thing about all this is that the centerpiece is simple, yet stunning. So, it is a practical arrangement that doesn’t compromise on style. We can also see colors like maroon and dark green replacing the purple with equal capacity.

Abundant textures in food

cake-pops-684163_640

Sprinkles, beads, glitter and scattered details add a colorful and energetic note, that makes a setting instantly buoyant. A simple element like a sweet buffet can instantly be uplifted with the choice of a few desserts that contain different textures. So, mix up the smooth with the crinkled, wrinkled and rough, add in bright pops of colors and make sure the arrangement is neat, despite the chaos. Consider items like macaroons, cake pops, cupcakes and mini-dessert cups to fashion the right effect. A few festive décor accessories like embellished platters, photo frames and beverage glasses decorated with ribbons around them are all it takes to dress up this signature reception setting, and it will add a sweet dimension of merriment.

A gourmet touch to the arrangement

The perfect wedding setting will be a bigger festive treat for the eyes, than for any of the other senses. So, even if you are serving elaborate fare, make sure it looks as impressive as it tastes. Even the simplest dishes can be given a tasteful face-lift, by choosing pretty china and paying attention to the garnish. Here is an example of how even a simple dessert can be rendered special with the simple addition of a powdered heart to its top. Additionally, the arrangement in an individual platter makes it neat and picture-perfect. So, use this idea at your wedding, and add a colorful touch to your tables with simple, but elegant and impressive gourmet touches.

An impressive display

balloon-1046658_640

Anything out of the ordinary, that can light up the sky or the venue, will uplift the spirits of those at your wedding, and add a spell-binding touch to the overall celebration. If you cannot create a firework display, you can still aim for a similar effect by lighting up your venue with a lavish choice of lighting. For an outdoor event, you can also create a similar vibe by using plenty of balloons that rise up and float away, thus forming an impressive display. This doesn’t cost much, but is very impressive. If the function is held indoors, make sure that your venue gets that first impression with an illuminated and well-decorated entry. Dress up the venue to look entirely different from how it is usually done, and you will achieve that unique effect. Consider adding an elaborate vignette that is bound to be noticed, and tie it to the theme, so it blends in seamlessly.

Travel in style

Your exit from the ceremony and reception play a great role in adding the final touches of drama. So, make your choice of transportation wisely. We think a horse and carriage is a splendid idea, as is a vintage car in a bright, noticeable color. Don’t hesitate to decorate it in full-style, so it stands out and will forever be remembered. Here is a bright, merry red beetle, that is just perfect for a festive wedding. Simple elements like white ribbons add the finishing touches to the already-splendid looking car.
