When a fight breaks out!

What happens if your divorced or even married parents start to fight during the wedding? Because weddings can be stressful even for the parents of the bride and groom, tensions tend to run high and sometimes tempers get out of control.

In a case where an argument gets out of hand, the best solution is to isolate the situation so the bride and/or groom do not see anything happening as well as other wedding guests.

In a real life case, a divorced couple got into a heated discussion that started to escalate quickly and we jumped right in to diffuse the situation to remind the parents that this was a joyous occasion and that this was their child's day and that they needed to cool off and walk away.

In the end the bride and groom were none the wiser and the parents came to us and thanked us for helping.

"We forgot the Marriage License"

Let's be real for a moment, the major reason why you have a wedding is to legalize your commitment to one another; and according to the great state of Washington and the other 49 states in the US, you are required to obtain a marriage license.

For our state, one must secure a marriage license at least three days prior to their wedding. We tell all of our couples to go get the license as soon as they are eligible, and that means no more than 60 days prior to wedding day to avoid this real life situation.

We had a couple actually forget to bring their license on wedding day. In the hustle and bustle of packing up on the big day, this was a slight oversight. When we found the license was nowhere to be found we were on the case. We were able to locate the very important document in the couple's apartment and returned to the venue without any guest knowing.We recommend handing off your wedding marriage envelope to your officiant at the rehearsal or to your wedding planner.
