Seen the YouTube wedding clip where, mid-ceremony, the ring-bearer trips and pushes the bride into a swimming pool? Worst. Don’t worry – this is not going to happen to you. But, given the amount of detail that goes into a wedding, it’s inevitable that some things will go awry on your big day. Here are the most common ‘Oh no!’ scenarios, and advice on what to do (we promise your guests won’t know the difference).
To prevent this unimaginable disaster, ban anything colourful like juice, soft drinks, red wine, dark lipstick and nail polish from any room you’ll be in wearing the dress. If the unthinkable happens anyway, make sure one of your bridesmaids brings white chalk along on the day, and cover the stain with the chalk as best you can. You’ll be amazed at how well this works. And remember, people are looking at you, not your dress – they won’t even notice.
