If All Else Fails, Be Glad If These Things Go Right on Your Wedding Day

Planning Tips

Every bride planning a wedding runs through all of the lists upon lists of things that could possibly go wrong on the big day. Could the venue catch on fire? Possibly. Will the rings mysteriously disappear into an abyss, never to be found again? It could happen! Sure, anything could happen, from little things like the first dance song not starting on time to bigger issues like the flowers not showing up, but ultimately, the real wedding present is getting married. To help you keep everything in perspective, we asked brides on Facebook to tell us the only thing they care about going right, even if the wedding day involves disaster. Their responses will make you reconsider what you think are your worst nightmares!
