Test the Pros: 5 INSANE Wedding Day Scenarios & Our Solutions
With wedding season in full swing, we decided to keep our minds sharp and put our wedding planning knowledge to the test. We had one of our associates come up with the craziest wedding scenarios that she could think of and ask us what we would do. We had 30 seconds to come up with our answers. Enjoy.
The bride and groom have decided to walk down the aisle with their beloved cockapoo Jenkins. Little did they know, Jenkins suffers from irritable bowl syndrome. Because of this, and to no fault of Jenkins, he has a rather large accident on the Bride’s dress moments before she is to walk down the aisle. What do you do?
Nicole’s answer: I would take off any article of clothing that I had and starts trying to remove the “accident” from the gown, although I would like to clarify that I would obviously look for other ways to clean the stain first but if it came down to it I would not hesitate to use my socks of jacket.
Emily’s answer: I would look around and see if there were any leaves or sticks around so that I could carefully remove the problem hopefully without leaving any of it behind, I would also dive into our emergency kit and grab a safety pin to pin up the portion of the gown with the stain.
It is three hours before the wedding, the ceremony is indoors and there has been construction going on all day but they assure you that they will be done before the ceremony begins. As you’re setting things up you hear a loud bang, whats that?! The cement truck that was outside has accidentally been backed INTO the wedding venue, cement is pouring out everywhere…yikes. What do you do?
Nicole’s answer: I would start awkward laughing at first, because that is what I do when I get stressed out initially. However, soon after that I would spring into action and accept the situation for what it was, figure out how to stop the cement from pouring out, and then start calling other venues explaining the situation and hoping for the best and f course keeping the bride and groom calm.
Emily’s answer: I would accept the situation for what it was and come to terms with the fact that we were going to need to have the ceremony somewhere else. I would think to call other venues but given the extreme short notice I would suggest having the ceremony outside, perhaps somewhere on the venue’s property.
The ring barer is the cutest little boy, although he is a little nervous to make his debut down the aisle, on his way down the aisle he throws up (yikes). Obviously the bride is to follow…what do you do?
Nicole’s Answer: I would laugh at first, because I mean…that is pretty funny, I would also make sure the little boy is okay and lead him to his parents and assure him that it was alright.
Emily’s answer: I would make my way down the aisle and let everyone know that there would be a brief intermission, hoping that everyone would understand given the circumstance. I would then clean up the the mess and continue on as scheduled, no matter how gross it is.
Uncle Norman has had a little bit too much to drink…and when we say a little bit too much we mean a lot a bit too much. He is being slightly disruptive by dancing on tables, breaking glasses, stealing bottle form behind the bar, doing karaoke (there is no karaoke at the wedding), etc. What do you do to resolve this situation?
Nicole’s answer: I would talk to the maid of honor or the best man (whoever the emergency contact of the bride and groom are) and let them know that they need to get Norman under control immediately or we will have to take matters into our own hands in order to keep the wedding under control and the guests safe.
Emily’s answer: I know we have something in our contract that says we can give a certain number of warnings to a certain guest and if they continue to be destructive and harass other guests we have to the ability to ask them leave. However, I am only 5’1’’ so there is only so much man handling that I can do, so I would probably ask a guest that knows the uncle and ask them if they could help me contain the situation.
The ceremony is going off without a hitch, you then receive an emergency notification on your phone that says a tiger has escaped from the local zoo…then you hear panicked screams form the crowd…the tiger is at the reception! No one has been hurt but there is a tiger in the middle of the dance floor…what do you do?
Nicole’s answer: CALL THE ZOO. I would actually also call my cousin…she works at a dog kennel so I amsure she would have some advice to give on the situation.
Emily’s answer: I am grabbing my car keys and am leaving, I would call 911 immediately form my car as well as animal control…and a tiger trainer…and once I knew that the guests would be safe, I would get the heck out of there.
We obviously hope that none of these particular situations happen, however, you can never be 100% certain of what could happen. That is why we would like to assure you that we will do whatever it takes go make sure that your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible, despite potential tigers.
