How to Fix an Oops on Your Big Day | Toledo Wedding Planner | Perrysburg Wedding Planner

Oops:

you’re short one bridesmaid’s bouquet.

Quick Fix:

Carefully pull a few stems from the other girls’ bouquet and create a new one, then tie it with a ribbon, says Dawn Kelly  of Soiree Floral , in Nantucket , Massachusetts. Or, if you’ve got kids in the wedding , ” have the bouquet-less bridesmaid walk down the aisle holding their hands .” Who needs flowers when you’ve got the opportunity for a chorus of awws?

Oops:

Your heel snaps just moment before the ceremony is due to start.

Quick Fix:

Have a properly stocked emergency bag can save the day. Grab the super glue and glue the heel back on, says San Deigo event planner Aleah Valley- a few drops will keep it in place for hours. Or barrow shoes from a friend (and not a bridesmaid ) ; then, after the I do’s have someone dash to your house, your hotel, or the nearest shoe store to get you a spare pair.

Oops:

Nobody’s dancing at the reception.

Quick Fix:

Ditch the playlist. Instead ask the dj or band to blast Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna, or another artist whose at the top of the charts. This tricks worth trying too: play an anthem song with a celebrity feel, like OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” or Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing “. Everyone in the crowd will know all the words, and if they can sing the chorus-which they will!- they will feel less self-conscious about their dancing explains Ari Rosenfield.

Oops:

The best man forgot the rings.

Quick Fix:

Ask two of your married friends if you can barrow their rings “Make sure you err on the side of people with larger hands,” says Amy Nichols.  “If the rings are too small, you and your fiance will look awkward trying to force them onto your fingers.” After the ceremony, return the rings to their owners, and send someone to fetch the real bands. Keep in mind that you can ask your celebrant to bless the rings at a later date.

Oops:

A toast goes on and on.

Quick Fix:

If you’re worried that a long-winded loved one will make a toast that just doesn’t end, appoint a groomsman beforehand to take back the mic and politely but firmly offer a quick thanks once the gabby quest has passed the three-minute limit. Then the groomsman should cur the band or the next speaker.

Oops:

A guest brings a surprise date.

Quick Fix:

Welcome to the uninvited plus-one graciously . Then immediately let your caterer know so he can handle the logistics of getting the insta-guest settled . ‘Such drop-ins are pretty common,” says Chicago wedding planner Ali Phillips. ” Your caterer can easily round up an extra meal and squeeze in another chair at  your quests table, or at another table with an empty seat.
