Inspired by Wedding Day Mishaps: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff!

Wedding day mishaps are almost always bound to happen! No day will be completely perfect and there is no such thing as a flawless wedding. The day may be too hot, too cold, too rainy, too windy, not enough cake, unexpected traffic, too many bugs or the flower girl refuses to go down the aisle! These are the kind of things that are out of a couples’ control, what they can control is their reaction. I’ve seen brides who have spent the whole reception questioning vendors, irritated that the flowers weren’t what she ordered and angry because the cake was the wrong shade of pink. At that time there is not much she can do. Just go with it and let the professionals handle it from there.

Other brides embrace imperfection and have a good time despite it all! I know for me there were a few things that didn’t go exactly as planned on my big day but I chose to put them in the back of my mind and have a great time, it truly was the greatest day of my life! If I had any bit of advice to give brides and future brides out there it would be: Don’t get caught up in the hoopla of throwing the biggest and best bash anyone has ever seen (its too stressful- I would know!!). Your wedding is one day and family is forever!

See some of these things that didn’t go exactly as planned for these couples…
