Top Five Possible Wedding Disasters

One thing that a bride and groom does not want as part of their wedding day is a disaster.  But what could possibly go wrong with all the preparation you have done?  We’ve got a Top Five possibly wedding disasters and some tips on how to avoid them altogether (or almost).

1.  The bride or groom gets the giggles.

You know how it is if one person starts laughing, but what happens if it is the bride or groom who are in the middle of taking their vowels.  If you or your partner do have a name that has the potential for a little bit of hysteria then it is probably a good idea to practice saying this until the hilarity is removed.  Obviously some people do giggle when they are nervous and this cannot be helped but if that is you, try and take some deep breaths and focus on how lovely it will be to walk back down the aisle as husband and wife.

2.  One of the wedding party faints.

Being part of the wedding party can be nerve-wracking and it is no wonder so many people tend to faint on the big day.  Not only do the nerves get the better of you, but for some they have skipped breakfast, or been up for hours and their body is running low on energy.  Try and make sure that all wedding party members have at least had something before they head to the ceremony.  Nominate the least likely person to faint (but not the bride and groom as they may be a little tied up) and equip them with some energy bars and bottled water for emergencies.

3.  The bride takes a tumble.

Something old, something new ……

For many, the first line of this traditional rhyme, brings to mind a bride on her wedding day.  But what does it actually mean for the bride herself?

The belief is a bride who wishes to bring good luck to her wedding and impending marriage life should incorporate these four; old, new, borrowed, blue into her day.  But like any bride knows, wedding plans can become an endless list of ideas, and the thought of adding four more fills them with panic.

Don’t worry Lyme Bay Field Kitchen have it all under control and our latest blog post includes an explanation into the meaning of this rhyme and ideas for brides-to-be to consider.  We have also dedicated one of our Pinterest boards to The Four ‘Somethings’  and is full of fabulous ideas, fantastic images and places to shop.

Something Old
Wearing something old represents the link between the bride and her family.  Particularly with her mother and grandmother, and is a symbol of continuity.  So brides-to-be should start asking their mother or grandmother if they have any antique jewellery they could possibly wear on their wedding day.  If either still have their wedding gowns, maybe something from that could be used on your own dress – say the veil?  Other ideas include a hankerchief, a pretty scarf or a piece of antique lace.

Something New
Something new is the easiest of the four ‘somethings’ to achieve as most brides do make their wedding dress the ‘something new’ on their big day.  Wearing something new represents good luck and success.  As a bride walks down the aisle she is filled with hopes that a bright future lays ahead.  It also reflects the new union that the bride and her new husband […]
