Use a safety pin to pin a dart underneath your armpit on one side. This is a location that's not easily noticed, and if you pin the dart on the inside of the dress, the pin's metal won't show.
Whoever thought wearing white on a wedding day was a good idea was tempting the fates. Many a bride has found red wine, coffee, grass and mud stains on her gown just before the wedding. If this happens to you, don't panic. Different fabrics respond to stains differently, so get fabric care guidelines from your dressmaker before your big day. If that's not an option, here are a few basic guidelines for common water-based stains such as wine, coffee and mud:
Don't pick at it. Hold an ice cube to the blemish to help reduce the swelling, then dab it with a medicated concealer the same color as your skin. Set the concealer with a light layer of powder and apply the rest of your makeup as usual.
When a bridesmaid notifies you that she's missing her bouquet, it's natural to want to scream. Take a deep breath and let it go. You can use flowers from the table settings and the other bridesmaids' bouquets to fashion a makeshift arrangement. If it's your bouquet that's missing, try a bouquet alternative and carry a sentimental object such as a family Bible or Torah.
A wedding without rings may seem like a true disaster, but it may be an opportunity for a meaningful exchange. Ask your parents or a couple whose marriage you admire if you can use their rings for the ceremony. It could add an extra-special sentiment to the service.
As long as you have needles and clear fishing line, fixing a broken bustle is a cinch. Simply identify the location of the broken bustle tie and use your needle to sew the dress up.
So the cake decorator messed up the wedding cake. She can't bake a new one before the reception, so you'll have to work with what you have. Carefully remove the incorrect decorations or imperfections and cover the spots with wedding flowers or greenery. If the area in question is small, consider simply turning the cake so the spot won't show.
