All eyes have been on Coronation Street in recent weeks as the soap geared up to Aidan and Eva’s wedding day. Following Aidan’s long-awaited confession about his affair with Maria, Corrie fans weren’t left disappointed as, lo and behold, Maria turned up to ruin the day… and Eva’s magnificent Mori Lee dress in the process. The love rivals battled it out in the venue’s fountain, bringing the storyline to an eye-popping culmination – although the plot continues to thicken as Eva and Aidan’s future now hangs in the balance.

The engrossing scenes – which were shot at the beautiful Knowsley Hall near Liverpool – have no doubt left brides cowering in fear. While real weddings don’t tend to unravel in quite the same way as a Coronation Street episode (although wedding horror stories have been documented) potential disasters can always threaten to upset an otherwise perfect day. Take a look at these wedding day disasters and how to avoid them to prepare yourself for (almost) the worst.
