Tips for Handling and Preventing Wedding Day Disasters

Tips for Handling and Preventing Wedding Day Disasters

Our Kelowna wedding DJs have seen our fair share of wedding day disasters and those “blooper” moments where things just go wrong. While you never want to hear the word disaster and wedding being used together when it is your wedding, sometimes things can go wrong.

Even though actual disasters are rather rare, there are many other smaller glitches that could occur no matter how well your wedding has been planned. To help you reduce and be prepared for any unforeseen snags on your wedding day, our wedding DJs have put together our top snafus list and how to handle them like a pro.

Wedding Dress and Tux Mishaps

From broken heels and runs to seam rips and stains, these minor malfunctions can be a major concern for the wedding couple on their special day. Make sure to prepare an “emergency kit” ahead of time with essentials, such as:

  • A sewing kit with thread, needle, safety pins, and scissors.
  • A packet of stain remover wipes.
  • Some double-sided sticky fabric tape.
  • An extra set of heels in the same colour.
  • A travel first-aid kit with band aids and other such items in case of minor cuts, blisters, etc.

Uncooperative Weather for Outdoor Weddings

Getting married outdoors has its appeal but rain and snow could quickly become a problem on your special day. It is always a good idea to have a backup plan to move things indoors, or have wedding tents ready to set up to keep everyone dry. If the weather isn’t looking good, you could also opt to provide guests with clear umbrellas and set up some portable heaters to still celebrate your marriage outdoors.

Waking up Sick on Your Wedding Day

No one wants to be sick on their wedding day. You can take some precautions ahead of time, like getting the flu shot. You should avoid being around people or kids that have colds or the flu as best as possible a few weeks leading up to your wedding. So if your brother asks you to watch their sniffling kids, this is one time it is okay to say no.

DIY Wedding Playlists

There is a lot that can go wrong when you forego hiring a professional wedding DJ. You could select the wrong music that doesn’t appeal to your guests. Not to mention, what do you do if your playlist is on your smartphone and you accidentally drop it into the toilet?

A professional wedding DJ can gauge your guests and play the right music to keep everyone dancing all night long. In addition, your DJ works with you to create a great playlist that includes your selections, and always has a backup so you don’t have to worry about not being able to keep your guests entertained.

If a minor mishap should occur on your wedding day, don’t let it ruin your special day. Take a deep breath, and remember this is just a small issue to an otherwise spectacular celebration.
