OK, so there’s two people you never thought you’d have to worry about making you crazy at your wedding…

 

Imagine if you were getting ready, doing some photos, and having guests picked up in a hotel – getting ready to head out to your ceremony…and there was a MAJOR event happening in the hotel…or right next door?

 

About a week before a wedding this weekend – the press announced that their Royal Highnesses Prince Charles and Camilla were coming to Philadelphia for the Academy Ball, the 150th anniversary of the Academy of Music…and to do some sightseeing…

 

Fortunately, after checking with the hotel where my couple were staying…the prince wasn’t staying there…

 

Can you imagine the security – trying to get your hair and makeup artist in? The photographer, ME….getting guests out to a shuttle?

 

While they weren’t in the same hotel- there were some street closures…so we made sure be got guests out before, redirected around other royal stops, and back to the hotel after the street opened.

 

Point is…. It doesn’t take a royal visit to add a little bump in your day… it could be street closings for construction, a street fair…anything…

 

Always good to double check with your venue, or hotel to see if they have any events going on the same day or know of any local community events..

 

Having someone double check the drive the a few days before the wedding can still give you time to offer guests current directions if something should arise…

 

WHODA thunk the Charles and Camilla could have had such a big effect on Allyson and Anuj’s wedding?
