Plan B's Are Your Best Friend

Updated on October 27, 2016

Why Is A Plan B Important?

In today’s world, no matter how much planning you do, there is bound to be something to go wrong. It may be the littlest thing, or something more significant. Either way, it throws a wrench in your plans and makes a stressful situation even more stressful. No matter how much planning you do, it is bound to happen. It is smart to always have a plan B.

Want to make sure you have everything covered? Make sure you check out There are endless tips and tricks to make sure you know everything you need to.

Does This Really Happen?

Thinking back to my own wedding, my mother told me this advice because she, unfortunately, learned the hard way. Three months before she married my dad, the reception hall burned to the ground. There was nothing they could do to change what happened. She jumped into crisis mode and was able to book another hall, thankfully, very quickly. Unfortunately in today’s time, that would probably not be possible. Most places, in my case as well, are booked up almost two years in advanced. How is it possible to have a plan B?

Well it can be as simple as just thinking ahead. I know that can be easier said than done. One famous example is an outdoor wedding. As beautiful and they are, they can cause a huge stressor to the couple. What if it rains? What is it is too windy? There are many other what ifs that go along with it. One simple fix would be to make sure the venue that you choose for your ceremony or reception also has an indoor option.

Plan A Fix Before It Is Needed

Unfortunately all plan Bs are not that easy to plan. What happens if your reception venue burns down three months before your wedding? It would seem nearly impossible to fix. Well there are some ideas that might work in a pinch, and make it look like you planned it all along. The first thing is to obviously call around and see if there is anything available. Although there might be a small chance, you may get lucky depending how far you are willing to go out in terms of radius.

What if there is no other hall? Well depending on the time of your wedding, one option you may be able to do is rent a tent. You would be surprised how many family, friends or parks would make themselves available to you when they know the pickle you are in. You then can shift all the decorators and vendors to that site, and it will be like nothing ever happened.

There are many other scenarios that could pop up as well. It is hard to go through each one, but when thinking about them, there are some things in common. When something unforeseen happens, instead of getting depressed and sulking, take action. Otherwise, the deadline gets closer and you have fewer options. By taking action right away, you will be at peace knowing that, yes, not everything turned out how you wanted, but your day will still be just as special.

Another Hint

Another way to make sure you don't have to worry if things go wrong would be hiring a wedding coordinator. They are worth every penny. You have been planning your day for a long time, sometimes even a couple years. You have been thinking and focusing on this nonstop. Do you really want to go through the stress if something happens, or do you want to delegate it to someone who you know will take good care of it?
