Wedding Nightmares & Mistakes To Avoid
Weddings aren’t all feels and cheers sometimes. Unfortunately, it also a platform for some of the nastiest incidents you won’t ever forget. A blissful wedding should be about the bride and her groom. However, there will be plenty of people who will try to steal that spotlight from you. A great example of this is the continuous outpour of guests. Your so shocked to find out that there’s an almost 200 people in the reception hall despite the fact that you only received 100 RSVPs. Expect annoying outcomes from unexpected events like this. Here are some of the worst situations and ways to handle them. Our goal is to help you recognize possible issues and how to manage them properly. No weddings go exactly as planned and you will just want to relax and handle them the best you can.
Buffet Lines that are Similar to a box Office
After an almost hour long of waiting for the ceremony to finish, your guests will be famished. Their priority is they should be the first in line in the buffet table. With no one to control the crowd, people will be rushing at the same time. To avoid this situation, designate someone to arrange the line by letting the guests at table 1 go first, followed by the next table, and so on. If expecting hundreds of guest, it would be ideal to have two buffet tables in order to serve foods fast. It's all about proper control, if you let the entire wedding party rush to the buffet you will certainly have a giant problem.
Parents who don’t Control their Children
You’re currently uttering your month long prepared wedding vow. It’s a solemn moment and everyone in the crowd is silently holding back their tears. It’s a peaceful ceremony yet all of the sudden your sister in law’s 4 year old son intentionally pushed her 2 year old sister off the chair resulting to loud cries and noises. Children are angels, we always adore their presence but not during this kind of “adult” themed gathering. Guests with undisciplined children can be annoying. What’s the worst part is that parents don’t seem to realize the commotion their children is already causing. When bringing children on your wedding is unavoidable, create an activity that will catch their interest such as artworks, face painting, or balloon making. Sometime having an adult only wedding is something to seriously consider. It's best to draw up the positive and minuses when trying to figure out which way to lean.
Guests who forgot to Settle their Means of Transportation and Accommodation
Finally, the long and exhausting day of getting hitched is finally over. You and your husband are about to go to your hotel room and be all cozy and cuddly. On your way out, you noticed that some of your guests are stranded. Apparently, they overlooked the situation and forgot to make an arrangement to the cab who drove them to the venue earlier. As inconvenient as it sounds, you are obligated to deal with this mess. To prevent this, remind guests that the location of your venue will be an hour drive from the city. If they don’t have their own private transportation, make sure they’ll notify you so that they’ll be included in the coaster intended for the guests.
The Shy Girls who don’t Want to be Included in the Bundle Hurl
In most movies that has a bouquet tossing scene, all the girls from all sorts of ages are exhilarated to snatch that bundle. Surprisingly, that traditional ceremony no longer interests any ladies to join. In fact, once the host announces that the bouquet tossing is next, you’ll notice the bridesmaids disappearing one by one. You will want to make this moment as welcoming as possible, as everyone knows, everyone is shy. Wedding's should be focused on cutting loose and not worrying about small things, so just try to make sure the entire wedding is having a good time!
Awkward Situation in the Round Table
Obviously, the way you assign guests on their designated seats will not always turn out on how you want it to be. There’s always be a group of people who wanted to seat closely together, thus, ruining your sitting lay out. Once you enter the venue and you notice that there’s an inconsistency, well it’s beyond your control already. This is always a major concern when planning the wedding is where who and who will sit. Our best advice, once you have made the seating arrangements stick and no longer fret about it. The best part about the seating arrangement is your sitting with your new life partner and what's better than that?
Insanely Alcoholic Guests
Not all people were a fan of weddings, some only go there for the hopes of having free foods and drinks. Either a member of the family or a close friend should make sure that the amount of alcohol that will be served in your wedding is in moderate amount. Let them know that they have to pay for those extra drinks if they continue. This will actually help you save money from overspending on beverages. Some guests get drunk to the point that their behavior is already in appropriate. If you’re expecting guests that have alcoholic problems, then it would be a smart move to not serve any alcohol at all. The golden rule is you know your family friends the best, so judge accordingly.
Long Exhausting Talks
Be careful on the person you choose to give a speech in your wedding. Make sure that he or she will be trustworthy and will not embarrass you in your own wedding. Also, remind them ahead of time that they should maximize the allotted 3 minutes of pure romantic and tear jerking message. Our motto for your wedding speech is quick and sweet!
Unexperienced and Boring DJ
You always envision of a lively wedding party where there is a sensible music and the guests are really showing off their hidden dance moves. Music plays a major role in the entertainment of your wedding. When you can hear crickets all over despite the loud music in the background, there’s something wrong with your DJ. One of the reasons why it’s best to go for a live band in great celebrations such as wedding is that they are more vibrant and interactive with people. Make sure that the DJ you’re about to hire has plenty of experiences, especially weddings. Give him a list of your favorite songs and your chosen genre to let him know your expectations.

Make Sure To Have Enough Sparklers For The Wedding Exit
The last thing we hate to always see at the end of the wedding night is not enough wedding sparklers. When the end of the wedding night is upon you and your wedding party are grabbing sparklers to lineup for the grand wedding exit nobody wants to be empty handed. Not only will your wedding night end sour for your guests, but you won't be able to have the sparkling exit you envisioned when buying wedding sparklers. We recommend buying approximately the same number of wedding guests as sparklers. The majority of time some of your wedding party leaves early so you can always use the extra wedding sparklers for fun bridal photo's or some guests can even use two at a time! When buying wedding sparklers for your wedding you will want to make sure you purchase true wedding sparklers so they are nearly smokeless and ash-less.
