Weddings and funerals: whatever could go wrong? - Live Zoom session
Weddings and funerals: whatever could go wrong?

Weddings and funerals are often high on emotion at different ends of the scale. And, no matter how hard and well you plan, things can – and will – go wrong.

In this 2 hour session, you’ll get an idea of what can go wrong, how to prevent things going wrong in the first place, and how to come up with a solution in the time you’ve got.

Some examples follow – and we will share others in the session.

Weddings:

What would you do if

  • the sound system fails 
  • the cars are delayed by a half hour 
  • there’s a car crash involving the wedding party 
  • weather is inclement 
  • the venue manager is ill and won’t be there on the day 
  • the couple forgets their rings 
  • the coordinator of the music is not able to attend 
  • someone faints during the love story
  • and many more . . .  

Funerals:

What would you do if

  • there’s a rogue speaker 
  • the funeral begins late and will over-run its scheduled time slot
  • the family wants to take several hours to say goodbye at the graveside
  • you thought the candles were being supplied by the family but they‘ve forgotten them
  • you thought there’d be a side table on which to place items but there isn’t
  • there’s no space for flowers on the coffin
  • the live streaming has gone awry
  • there’s confusion about the order of the music
