Don’t Let Allergies Ruin Your Wedding
Wedding-related nightmares are common. Just ask any bride, and she’ll probably tell you that she’s had nightmares about walking down the aisle in pajamas, or about consuming a food allergen during the reception and getting a horrible reaction to it. Taking a proactive, organized approach to wedding planning is the trick to calming these fears. So while you’re coordinating with the caterer and arranging wedding rentals , keep a list of your worries. Write down your concerns about everything from allergies to the weather, and deal with them one at a time.
Outdoor weddings are romantic, but sneezing and sniffling your way through your vows aren’t the type of memories you want. If you or other attendees have severe pollen allergies, make arrangements for an enclosed tent rental. It’s not foolproof, but it should help keep everyone comfortable. Consider having it set up a day or two in advance, and running some heavy-duty air purifiers with HEPA filters before the ceremony.
Food allergies can lead to life-threatening reactions. When you send out your invitations, ask your guests to RSVP with information about food allergies and sensitivities. Talk to the caterer about these issues, and have a variety of hors d’oeuvres and meal options to choose from. It can be particularly tricky for guests to determine if an appetizer is safe to eat, as these tend to be wrapped or rolled. Ask the caterer to put small signs on each platter to identify potential allergens.
Contact dermatitis is an itchy skin reaction to an allergen or irritant. This won’t necessarily be a problem for your guests, but it might be a problem for your ring finger. Make sure your jeweler is aware of any metal allergies or sensitivities you have. Nickel allergies are the most common.
