Fallbrook, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Weddings will always have unexpected moments and mishaps. Many of these are small and barely noticed. However, on June 13, 2013, The Huffington Post posted a video of an unfortunate accident that occurred when a bride and groom zip-lined into their wedding. This calamity could have been avoided. Do the Bride a Favor has been inspired by this video to give its top four tips for preventing accidents at a wedding.
1. Hire Professionals
While it may be tempting to hire a family member or friend to be a photographer, DJ, or wedding planner, it may very well backfire. Missed deadlines, technical difficulties, or other problems can lead to embarrassing moments during a ceremony. Investing in professional staff is an important step in creating a successful, incident-free wedding.
Don’t just practice the ceremony, have the bridal party practice any specific poses that the bride wants for photographs as well. It may seem taboo, but the bride should also practice dancing in her dress - even if it’s by herself - to make sure that no wardrobe malfunctions occur. Run through any special entrances, speeches, or special events which will take place during the wedding and reception.
3. Insure It
Wedding insurance may seem over the top, but brides can never plan for every situation. For cake mishaps, tent collapses, and no-shows, wedding insurance can provide replacements and refunds.
4. Think Ahead
When planning, always take a second look to be sure that the wedding is headed for success. If it’s a summer wedding, invest in heat-resistant custom candy favors such as hard candy in a bag with a monogrammed gift tag. Consider having insect-proof lids for drinks, along with bee sting kits for guests. If it’s an indoor wedding, take a look at the floors of the venue to identify any trip hazards or slippery surfaces.
