Even when you have the perfect wedding reception venue, the perfect caterer, the perfect florist, the perfect photographer, and the perfect coordinator, events are likely to occur on your wedding day that you would have never anticipated. These events are not necessarily bad occurrences, but it is helpful to be aware of their possibility so you aren’t taken off-guard and can prepare to roll with the punches. Here are a few things you should know to expect.
You Probably Won’t Be Able to Be the First to Share Your Photos
With Smartphones and social media at everyone’s fingertips, it’s possible that pictures of your ceremony will be live online before you and your new spouse even make it back down the aisle together. Unless you intend to place a ban on all outside sources of technology and collect devices at the door, it’s just something you’ll have to resign yourself to. You can take comfort in knowing, however, that none of those shots are going to compare with the photographer’s that you will get to share first.
There Will Almost Certainly Be an Issue with Your Menu and At Least One Guest
Whenever you get a large crowd together, especially for something like a wedding reception, you’re going to run into dietary challenges. Whether a person is vegan, has food allergies, or has some other specific dietary restriction, you’ll want to be prepared. You might consider asking for any special needs with your RSVP, or ask your caterer to prepare something that virtually anyone can eat, regardless of restrictions.
The Bride is the Main Attraction
While this may seem a given, many brides are taken aback when complete strangers wave, take pictures, and generally offer the celebrity treatment. That white dress may as well be a spotlight following you around—enjoy it!
