How To Avoid Disaster On Your Wedding Day!: No one wants to say “Uh-Oh” on their special day, so read ahead to make sure you are kept smooth sailing the whole day!

1. Heavy Signs = Strong Easels

Planning on using a mirror as place card decor? Make sure you are using a metal easel! We all know wooden easels are pretty and give such a rustic vibe to any event, but remember….wood snaps! Wooden easels are best used with light wooden signs. Think of it like this…heavy signs need a strong easel and lighter signs can go with a daintier easel! The last thing you want is for your easel to snap on your special day so take caution and think ahead! Check below to see an example:

PS: Keep in mind mirrors can also get knocked down off the easel by guests as they crowd around it looking for their seat…as a safer option you could hang the mirror from a door or use a mirror with a stand already attached (like a picture frame)!

2. Have An Alternate Indoor Location

Everyone loves an outdoor wedding whether that be a beach, a garden or even a rooftop overlooking the city! But what we DON’T like is horrible stormy/rainy weather that washes away all that hard work you put in! It is crucial to have a back-up location just in case it decides to pour down on your special day so make sure to look around at nearby venues that can help your day run smoothly and without major stress!
