Wedding Disasters – the stuff of little girls’ and grown women’s nightmares.
The recent storm, “Blizzard Colbie” that slammed the Northeast last week, highlighted the fact that a bride can not plan for every possible disaster – tiny or catastrophic. One does the best she can – but sometimes…life just happens. I think the bride above is planning for the worst case scenario – either that, or she is very very hungry and is not considering skipping a meal. Really…the bib is good idea, but not sure I’d have the guts to wear it. Wonder if she’ll wear it at the dinner reception…
The above picture is of Hurricane Sandy – what a devastating storm. The weather can always play a factor in a bride’s day, it rained on Maggie and Rob’s wedding day, but Hurricane Sandy was an extreme weather event. Who can plan for that??
Pets can also play a part in potential disaster, note the photo above. My only question…Why is this dog at the reception unleashed? Looks a might ‘staged’ to me. I HAVE heard of a true story where a cat got his mistress’ veil and tore it to scraps — wait…that was Beverly Cleary’s teen novel, “Fifteen.” Loved that book… But it could happen… A situation like that is when one is called up on to improvise. In “Fifteen” the super crafty “mother of the bride” shortened the veil, and guess what…it was JUST the modern flair that the bride had wanted all along…
I highly recommend assembling a “Bride’s Emergency Kit” for possible MINOR disasters. If you’d like some tips on items to include, you can click on the following link and read my blog post on the subject.
You can hope and plan for the best, but if something minor occurs to upset your big day…remember, it will make a great story in years to come… 🙂
