With the recent devastation all over Australia, the traffic conditions on the M1 and Logan Motorway and the recent rain over the past couple of days, I thought it a timely reminder to ensure you have a backup plan. What is your backup plan?
Does your ceremony venue have an alternative space to use in case of wet weather/extreme heat or winds? If it doesn't can you use your reception area?
What if you can't get to your ceremony or reception venue?
Are there alternative routes?
Can your vendors and guests get there by alternative route? What is my backup plan? I constantly review the weather forecasts and traffic forecasts for a number of reasons: - leave myself plenty of time to arrive at your venue early and relaxed - coordinate with you, your venue or a nominated guest to assist in changing venue at the last minute if required - this may include making calls to your guests advising them of the change of plan - an In Case of Emergency document that sits on my front seat as I drive to your venue - this tells who ever finds me to call my hubby and tell him I love him, your nominated people and or you (if they can't get them) to advise them of the situation and a list of my go-to celebrants to get to you if I can't make it (I cover all of this at our rehearsal/meeting, but it is handy to know)… I don't write this to scare you… just to prepare you…. Preparation is key and sometimes a backup plan is overlooked… So this is my friendly reminder :)
