Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence looked stunning as she glided down the red carpet in a bridal-inspired Dior haute couture dress at last night’s Academy Awards.


However, things didn’t quite go according to plan for the Best Actress winner. As she took to the stage to accept her award, the one thing that no award winner wants to happen to them, happened to her – she fell on live television. Thankfully she was not hurt and she went on to make a wonderful acceptance speech, despite being a little embarrassed.

While we can’t promise that you won’t have a Jennifer Lawrence-esque slip on your big day, you can rest assured that any big-day problems that you might have can be covered with a little thing called wedding insurance. However, if you are still terrified about tripping down the aisle, there are a few things you can do to minimise the risk.

  • Walk around in your wedding dress, practice moving, dancing and sitting down.
  • Don’t opt for skyscraper heels if you’re not confident about walking in them all day.
  • If you’re worrying about stepping on your dress fabric, why not consider for a shorter-styled wedding dress.
