Sometimes when you hear a conversation between a newlywed bride and a long-wed bride, the first question they will ask is, “What went wrong?” This is not meant as a negative view of your wedding day but an amusing understanding that at every wedding, in every person’s special day, something will go wrong. I repeat, something will go wrong.
I know a recently married couple who went into their wedding day knowing that fact and anticipated the one thing to happen. They decided from the start of the day that it would happen and whatever it was they would roll with the punch, take a deep breath, and move on so they could enjoy their day. This is the best approach you can take to your wedding day! Understand that something somewhere will go wrong even if just a small detail.
One of the easiest ways to avoid having to deal with the drama is to have a day-of-coordinator. They are familiar with all the typical issues that come up and are equipped to fix them. But if hiring someone is not in your budget, make sure you have designated a close friend as the detail handler for all problems to go to. That way, most problems you won’t even have to hear about until you can laugh about them later!
The biggest thing is to make sure that you can enjoy your day. All last minute details can be handed off so you can fully delight in one of the most special days of your life.
