The 5 things that might go wrong on your wedding day

Every happy couple hope that their wedding day runs as smoothly as possible, however, just like with everything in life, there is a good chance that you may hit a few bumps on the road.

So, how can you be prepared for these issues?

Let’s take a look at the 5 most common things that could go wrong on your wedding day.

Kids will be kids

Having children at your wedding is great, they add into the cute factor and make the entire day feel a little bit more fun.

However, they can also be a bit of a pain, particularly if they decide to play up during the ceremony or the wedding breakfast.

The thing to remember is that kids are just that, kids and they are going to misbehave.

One trick for this is to make sure that the kids have things to do, as keeping them entertained is key to keeping their behaviour on the right track

Someone is ill

Hopefully this won’t relate to you or your other half, however, there is a good chance that someone in your wedding party, or a very important guest, will be poorly right before your big day.

It could be a tummy bug or a touch of the sniffles but be prepared for someone to complain that they are not feeling their best.

There will be a drunken fool

Weddings and alcohol go hand in hand, in fact, some people view it as an opportunity to drink for 8 hours straight.

However, the trouble with this is that at some point you are going to have to deal with a drunken fool or two.

Hopefully this will only be an uncle with a tie around his head, however, you should also be prepared for lots of sweaty bear hugs and maybe some drinks being split down your dress or suit too.

It rains

We can’t control the weather, particularly in the UK, the thing to think about is that it may rain and have some plans for this in place.

You also need to try and stop obsessively checking the weather forecast, not only is this going to stress you out, but you won’t always know what is going to happen with the weather on their big day.

Someone is late

Despite your best planning, and the best planning of those guests coming to your wedding, there is a good chance that someone will be late to your ceremony.

This is often why there is a slight delay for the bride to make her entrance, all to make sure that there are no last minute entrances.

If you are concerned about this happening, or you have a friend who is always late, it might be worthwhile saying to them that they should wait outside the ceremony room if they get there too late.

Now, we are not saying that these things are definitely going to go wrong during the course of your wedding day.

But there is a chance that they might.

Knowing that there might be a problem and knowing how best to fix things is going to help your entire wedding day run that little bit smoother, no matter what fate throws at you.
