This blogger for Manolo claims the one thing she’s found to be true, in her many years of “fascination with weddings and marriage,” is that something always goes wrong.
It may be the ringbearer bolting from the church. Or perhaps the bakery delivered the wrong cake. Maybe the bride locked her shoes in her dressing room. Whatever it is, here are some ways to deal with wedding disasters, so that you can minimize the damage and keep things pleasant for everyone involved.

In this case, inflexibility created a much bigger problem than actually existed.
