What would you do if you were unable to work on the rehearsal and/or wedding day?  Do you have a backup plan in place?  You should.  In a recently aired episode of the Style Network television show, Whose Wedding is it Anyway?, a wedding planner was unable to attend the rehearsal because her daughter fell ill.  Then the planner couldn’t work on the wedding day because she was ill. On the TLC show Wedded to Perfection, the wedding planner’s daughter fell ill on the wedding day. Don’t worry, both planners had emergency plans and everything ended up great.  But things do happen that you can’t predict.

Here are some suggestions for making sure sure the wedding still comes off without a hitch, even when you can’t be there :

  • Work with only professional, high-quality wedding vendors whom you can trust to do their jobs well.
  • Have a responsible, trustworthy assistant who takes initiative to do things even when you are not available.
  • Make sure the bride has met your assistant.
  • Keep track, in writing, of any changes to the wedding plans.
  • Have all of your information about a wedding in one place so your assistant can easily access it, when necessary.

If something does happen to you, don’t keep your bride in the dark, let her know as soon as possible.  Tell her what is being done so her wedding will still be as perfect as it would have been if you had been with her.

By the way, you should check that all the wedding vendors also have made contingency plans.  For instance, you don’t want to find out, on the morning of the wedding, that the officiant can’t make it and has no idea who can take his or her place.
