Wedding Wednesday: When Disaster Strikes

Share Button

Being imperfect people, it is expected that at times imperfect moments are to be had. However, when it’s your big day, your moment, the greatest expression of love soon to be shared between you and your special groom-to-be the ~ last thing you want on your mind is an impending mishap.

Unfortunately, we can’t prevent tripping down the aisle (however, wearing ankle strap shoes or a lower heel will give you more stability), there are some great tips available to resolve three possible wedding day day disaster

Someone Spills Wine On Your Dress

Trust us your guests are going to be just as thrilled as you are on the day you say your vows. They’ll be laughing, dancing, smiling and eating or drinking right along with you.

Such excitement can often end in an unplanned accident, such as: spillage on the biggest fashion statement of the day…your wedding dress.

Before you decide to cast the guilty party out of your wedding and possibly life, take heart, the stain can be removed from sight. If this unfortunate turn of events occurs, you may try one of two things.

First, you may attempt to dab the stain away using club soda or take a white cloth and try to soak up the spill as much as possible. Anything that remains behind can be hidden with talcum powder.

Mr. Zit Makes An Appearance

On the one day you are supposed to look your absolute best your skin may try to root against you. Acne may appear due to stress, crazy scheduling or even experimentation of products to get your makeup to  look right. So, what do you do if you get a pimple on your wedding day?

In this case, H2O will prove to be the real MVP, well at least the solid form anyway. In the event of a pimple, reduce any swelling by holding an ice cube against the blemish.

Next, apply a medicated concealer that is the same tint as your skin and set it lightly (do not cake it on) with powder. You can then proceed with the rest of your makeup application as normal with no one being the wiser.

Videographer Did Not Show Up

Now we are going to spend a little more time on this subject because we feel it is very important. What does videography mean to a wedding? Well, it is likely one of the ONLY ways for you to look back on and reminisce about the time you and your love agreed to spend the rest of your lives together.

Without videography or photography you will simply have to rely on your memory, which scientifically has been shown to fade with age. Yikes!

Wouldn’t you like to know that even if your videographer failed to show there was a backup in place? Wouldn’t that help put your mind at ease knowing that no matter what you’ll have some visual keepsakes available to help cherish your wedding memories? Well, we are proud to say that there is such an option available and it’s so easy that any bride can use it!

The service every bride needs to have for her wedding is known as DropCam.

DropCam utilizes a device that allows brides to do a live video stream of their wedding, which is also perfect for any friends and loved ones that couldn’t make it. Nevertheless, with the option to tack on the Cloud Recording service, couples can also save up to 30 days (720 hours) of continuous video. Now thats a lot of wedding action!

Thanks to Dropcam once the festivities have come to an end you can have the pleasure of reviewing footage with the hubby on your device and you can share favorite clips with family and friends. Voila, another wedding disaster successfully diverted! To learn more about the service, click here:
