I was just 12 years old when my oldest brother got married, and even I knew that his tuxedo pants were way too short. Seriously, he could've walked through a flood, and his hems would have emerged unscathed. My mother is extremely handy with a needle and thread, so she let out the hems mere minutes before he took his place at the end of the aisle. His pants were still a little on the short side, but at least you couldn't see his socks.

As any good event planner knows, it pays to stock an emergency kit for your wedding. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Simply fill a shoebox with a sewing kit, scissors, tape, safety pins, bobby pins, hair spray, deodorant, pain reliever and other important items, and make it available to everyone in your wedding party. Another tip? Make sure everyone in the wedding party -- including the groom -- tries on his or her attire before the big day to ensure a good fit!
