THE PROBLEM:

Sudden Pimple Breakouts

acne, pores, skin

THE SOLUTION:

First of all, avoid getting facial treatments weeks or days before the actual wedding. If needed be, your facial appointment should be scheduled months before the big day. This will give your skin a chance to adapt to the new solutions / chemicals that will be applied to your face. If you end up waking to a zit on your special day, apply ice cubes to the area to avoid further inflammation and redness. Try covering it up with a concealer and you are good to go. You’re still beautiful, lovebug! Keep your chin up!

THE PROBLEM:

Wardrobe Malfunctions

THE SOLUTION:

We’ve all seen it. Teared pants, missing buttons, and a hole in the shirt is definitely the most common wedding day disaster. Get on with your day by having a handy emergency kit ready. This should contain all the essentials such as a needle, thread, small scissors, fashion tapes, tide to go pens, and other whatnots that may save you from wardrobe malfunctions.

THE PROBLEM:

Bad Weather

pink, roses, rain

THE SOLUTION:

In a tropical country like the Philippines, we only have two seasons: wet and dry. Lately, climate change has gotten so bad. In the height of summer, there are few drizzles here and there. If you are getting married in an open-air venue such as garden setting, ask your venue if you can have a back-up plan in case it pours down really bad. Chances are, there are adjacent pavilions you can transfer in. Check out these venues that will allow you to enjoy your day, rain or shine.

THE PROBLEM:

Wedding Supplier Cancellations

THE SOLUTION:

Does it really happen? Yes, lovebug. Wedding supplier cancellations are quite common and happens even if they are bound by contract. The reasons include crazy traffic jams, sicknesses or downright AWOL. How can you fix this? Ask your venue if they have back-up suppliers. They have a solid network of professional suppliers who can attend to your needs last minute. Just breathe and relax. They got this!

THE PROBLEM:

No-show wedding guests

THE SOLUTION:

It is very important to set an RSVP months or weeks in advance to know how many guests you are expecting. If some important guests will not be able to come, you can fill up the seats with other friends or relatives you can invite last minute.

Come wedding day and these guests still don’t show up. What’s a girl to do? Well, there is really nothing you can do about that. Just let the person-in-charge know that your expected guests are probably not coming in after the agreed time. He/She can re-arrange the seating plan accordingly.

THE PROBLEM:

You did not like how something turned out.

Your bridal bouquet does not match the overall theme. Your wedding cake is slowly melting. The wedding stylist overcrowded the aisle. How do you deal with this? We all know that each bride has a vision of their own for their wedding so it is actually very disappointing if it does not match in actual. Just as long as it is not a major bump in the wedding, don’t sweat the small stuff, lovebug! There is really nothing you can do about it. You know what they say? If you cannot change something, just change your mindset about it. It works wonders!

Awkward Family Drama

THE SOLUTION:

If your aunt does not want to be seated near her ex-husband, let your coordinators know. In that way, they’ll be placed tables apart and will be steering away from each other in no time.

THE PROBLEM:

Everything is behind schedule.

THE SOLUTION:

It happens all the time in Filipino weddings! We absolutely cannot shake off the fact that some of us are still practicing ‘Filipino time’. With this reason, everything falls behind schedule. Keep your guests from feeling bored by serving the appetizers a little early or ask your bar if they can serve juices to the expecting guests.

Jardin de Miramar, an events venue located in Antipolo, boasts of a three-hectare garden with a park-like environment. Guests are free to roam around and enjoy the lush sceneries and view the art sculptures on display. Guests are also welcome to visit the Casa Santa Museum, also located inside the garden. To while away the time, guests will find it entertaining to see Santa Claus memorabilias. They can spend some time there while the team is busy getting everything on track again. Your guests will not notice that you are behind schedule. They will even appreciate the thought of you scheduling exciting activities for them!

Whatever wedding disaster you are faced with, trust that there is always a solution! Don’t fret and don’t let it keep you from enjoying your special day, lovebug. 😊
