Wasted Guests

Your guests may enjoy too much drink and end up getting wasted. Result? They might go too wild, harassing your other guests or have an emotional meltdown. Watch this example below:

She drank too much alcohol, enjoying dancing so much that she ended up destroying the wedding tent. To prevent this, we recommend that you only invite guests that you know personally. Are they in control even if they drank a lot? This is unavoidable in big weddings with more than 200 guests, as most likely, you don’t know much about them. Venue staffs will assist you in case you had a misbehaving guest. They maybe escorted away from other guests who just want to enjoy the rest of the evening.

Wardrobe Malfunctions

Wardrobe malfunctions is probably one of the most embarrassing thing that can happen to anybody on their wedding day. Falling pans, wedding attire too loose on the chest area, wedding dress ripping apart are just some of the wedding disasters that might happen to you. Make sure that your wedding gown is made by a reputable designer or from a good bridal shop. Before buying or availing any service for your wedding gown or suit, make sure that the reviews are amazing. Also, do a little research about materials and seams of clothing so if you notice that something maybe wrong, you may tell them immediately and have them adjust it for you.

Wrong  Wedding Song Played

Having the wrong song request played at your wedding is embarrassing. It will also give an awkward feeling to the occasion. It may end up funny but most of the time this is not the case.  Having the wrong song played at your bridal waltz is a wedding disaster. You have practiced the your bridal waltz to that song only to dance at the wrong one! To prevent this, confirm with your wedding DJ the list of the song that you want to be played at your wedding and make sure that you are on the same page. Any last minute request must be also confirmed.

Group Photo Location

Choosing the wedding party photo location may end up as a fail. Avoid locations where accidents are most likely to happen like docks, piers and by the lakeside where you and your bridal party have to stand on a platform that is not secure. Try other locations that is much safer like gardens, in front of the ceremony chapel and others. Entering a wedding reception with a wet bridal gown is embarrassing.

Cake & the Cake Tables

Cake cutting is an important event at your wedding reception. This symbolizes the union of the couple and a promise to always provide for each other. Sometimes, accidents can happen. Wedding cake might get ruined by a clumsy staff, unstable cake table or a badly designed cake. When discussing the cake with your cake designer, avoid pillars if you are planning for a 3 or more tier cake. Pillars for the cake is unreliable and they may crumble anytime.
