The big day of your life that you planned over and over again has finally arrived. A day that has to be more than perfect is finally here and you want it to be perfect. However, its an event and things could go out of hand when you least expect it and a wardrobe malfunction is common. If you have a wedding planner like Jennifer Lopez from the wedding planner, then you’re the luckiest bride in the world because she literally accounts for all the malfunctions that keep coming up during the wedding right from straps splitting to consoling a relative. If you don’t have a JLo by your side, then get your closest friend or your sister to pull of a JLo to keep Murphy’s law in check!
But you are a millennial bride and not without a reason, you know the mantra “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.”
Let’s see how you can be more in command of an undesirable situation.

Though this may be a little drastic it never hurts to have some pins and fancy broaches on you. For heavy hairdos, if not done well may start giving away under the weight. If that happens don’t sweat. Just shake off the hair from the updo, gather and secure in a decorative broach and you seized the day.
