Wedding day Tips from real brides
What better person to give advice from a wedding than someone who’s already gone through it. They also likely have gone through some mishaps and mistakes, and weathered them. Learn from their mistakes so that you may be better prepared for problems that you encounter in your wedding.
One bride related that when they had a potluck reception, it was a disaster. This was because people never coordinated on what too bring. Either everyone brought pancit or puto, so there was little variety to go on. It also meant a lot of food would be refused and wasted. Thus, coordination is of the utmost importance.
Bad photo positioning
Photographers usually know best on positioning for photos. So when the couple or other people have their own ideas, they can end up giving a terrible shot. One wedding saw a photographer asked to take position in a place where he had to aim his camera between his legs – and it included his crotch in the shot. That provided a lot of work for photo editors
Open Mic for Guests Turns into a Roast
Getting a comment from someone is best done without alcohol. An open bar and open mic led to someone roasting the couple over their somewhat controversial past. Take sure to avoid unnecessary roasts
Some couples haven’t listed their toasts properly (or at all), and it led to some important toasts being forgotten. One bride described that she regretted skipping toasts, since she learned that many of her friends had heartfelt messages ready.
Guests Who Can’t Get Their RSVPs Together
This is why following up RSVP’s is very important. Some people don’t bother to say anything, or maybe forget to reply. Some guests have RSVPed attendance, but may actually not show up at all.
Forgetting to Do the Garter Toss
A bride once forgot the garter. Good thing a guest lent his tie as a substitute. Instead of that, you can try something like a bracelet or other similar object to use as a garter. Or better yet, have someone else carry a spare garter.
