Top Tips for a Better Wedding Day | Tip #2

Your wedding day can feel somewhat hectic; there are a lot of things happening, some of them in a relatively short period of time, and the expectations are always staying high.

More from a 'general day-run’ point-of-view, but also from the wedding photography-related point-of-view, the ideas and pointers in our Top Tips for a Better Wedding Day series, would help you - brides, grooms and other wedding planners - to enjoy a better, smoother, wedding day.

Top Tip #2: The B Plan(s)

In locations where applicable (Houston, TX area is a great example!) and/or during times of the year where whether can change throughout the day – bringing strong winds, rain, hail or combinations of them - it’s always a good idea to have a B plan(s).

Why planS and not just one plan? Because you might end up needing to change more than one thing. The most common examples would be: indoor ceremony instead of outdoor ceremony, and indoor ‘dedicated photos-taking time(s)’ instead of outdoor.

The bride and groom might be aware of such an obvious need of B plans themselves, but they HAVE TO make sure that their vendors are aware of such potential need as well, and that THE VENDORS can switch, if needed, and accommodate - such B plans, in an efficient way.

Examples for such vendors would be the event’s venue (for indoor seating etc.), the DJ (for speakers and DJ station locations, cables, power source etc.), and of course – the event’s wedding-photographer (for indoor vs outdoor lighting options, photoshoot and posing locations, backgrounds etc.).

While to the naked eye, any of those changes or setup switches could seem easy – to those vendors it might mean a change or additions of equipment, etc. Make sure you and your vendors are all on the same page as far as those ‘what-if’s and check your/their options to run the show on such B plan(s), if needed.

If the weather outside is bad, you might end up needing to do things indoor. Be prepared!
