Wedding Day Blues

The weather can be an unpredictable thing. So if it rains on your supposedly perfect Charleston, SC wedding, you can’t do much about it. So just make sure to plan ahead and pack an umbrella. If your wedding is outdoors then renting a tent would be the best thing to do just in case mother nature decides to make it pour on your big day. You should also check the indoor spaces available on your set date, so if possible you can move indoors. If you plan to have your reception in far place from your ceremony, make sure that everyone has a form of transportation, like available taxi services.

Makeup Emergency

You’re the bride and it’s your big day, so everybody expects you to be emotional. But looking your best on this day is a top priority. So what if you cry and you ruin your make up? Well what you can do is wear waterproof or smudge proof makeup to ensure that you still look your best, tears and all. Also if you’re not tight on your budget you can have your makeup artist stay behind until the ceremony is over so they can touch you up just before they take the pictures.

Stained Dress Disaster

Your at your wedding reception and suddenly someone spills their red wine on you. Don’t let this ruin your day, their a lot of ways to get stain out of a dress. You can try this; get a clean white cloth, soak it in water and try to dab the stained area until the satin is almost gone. Never rub the stained area, this will just make the stain spread and make your problem worse.  If the stain is still visible just put some talcum powder to cover it up. More importantly try to get the advice of your dry cleaner on how to get stains out on certain types of fabric.
