When things go wrong – have a plan B

Sometimes things go wrong and not exactly to plan. From how to manage let down suppliers to being prepared for the little things that might need fixing on the day, Charlotte and Becky guide you through how to have the perfect plan B so that your day still runs as smoothly as possible.

If things don’t go to plan, grab your beau, an extra glass of fizz and make the unexpected a part of your day. Rain or mega shine your wedding day will be perfect because it’s about you making a commitment to your fave person in the whole world.
