Wedding Catering Services and Avoiding Wedding Day Disasters

Wedding planning is as stressful as it is exciting. It can get even more stressful should unexpected mishaps pop up. The best you can hope for is a wedding ceremony that goes smoothly.

However, if you want to avoid a complete bridezilla moment, it is best if you prepare for common issues that can occur. But keep in mind that even if an unforeseen incident does occur, the most important thing to remember is that you are getting married to the person you love most.

Still, you want the perfect wedding, it is what we all desire. Ranch Willow Restaurant, your wedding catering service in Buttonwillow, offers tips for avoiding wedding day disasters.

Pack a Survival Kit

Keep a bag of all of the things you might need for your wedding and reception. Have a good friend hold onto it for you. Deodorant, perfume, lipstick and extra hairpins are all items you might need at a moment’s notice.

Trusted Family and Friends

It’s your wedding day and you should not be fussing about little things. Put trusted and true friends and family in charge of arrangements for the day. Share details about what is supposed to happen before the day.

If the DJ is running late or a drunk uncle is acting silly, someone other than yourself should be handling the situation. You don’t need to be running around fixing things.

You Need a Backup Plan

You planned what was to be a lovely outdoor wedding, except it rained. If you have a backup plan, it’s not going to be a big deal. If you don’t have a backup plan, it could be a disaster.

Remember that if something can go wrong, it will on your wedding day. So have a backup plan for everything.

Be Informed

Remember to keep in touch with all of the important people involved with the wedding. You need to keep in touch with the manager of the venue, the cake designer and the florist. Leave nothing to chance, call these people and ensure they are on track and ready for the big day.

Break Things In

Break in those new wedding shoes by wearing them around the house a few days before the wedding. You will want to make sure they get comfortable and lessen the chance of tripping you up.

Try on your wedding dress a day or two before the wedding to ensure a good fit. Your weight does fluctuate.

Hire Professionals

You have a cousin who is an amateur photographer and an aunt who is a self-styled hairstylist. That’s nice, but you don’t want them helping at the wedding, even if it will save you a few bucks.

You might have family and friends who could take photographs and who do wonderful things with hair, but things could also go very wrong. Be polite when they offer their services but turn them down nonetheless.

Be Healthy

You want to look your best and feel your best on your wedding day. It helps if you are eating right and getting plenty of exercise. All of this healthy motivation will have you feeling great and looking fantastic at your wedding.

The Sooner, The Better

Once you have set the wedding date, make the reservations as early as possible. Don’t wait for the last moment when you can run into problems. It is far better to schedule a band one year out than to have to scramble and find a band the week before the wedding.

Make a List

Your wedding isn’t going to plan itself. It takes a lot of time and effort to plan a wedding and there is a lot to do. It is far too easy to space something out. This is why you need to make a checklist and keep track of everything.

If you are a good organizer, by all means, take the lead. But you should also have friends and family help out. Planning a wedding is just too much work for one person. This way, the more that others help, the better the odds that the day will turn out perfect.
