When planning a wedding, it's always good to plan for the worst, just in case.

For example, everybody who was slated to get married in the year 2020 dealt with the fallout of a global pandemic either forcing their festivities down to tiny numbers, online or cancelling or postponing the wedding altogether.

Even in 2021 the lingering threat of the pandemic is too close and too fresh to ignore, so when someone gets sick on your wedding day, they're out.

But what happens when the sick party is the groom?

The Victorian, a wedding venue in North Carolina, had to think fast when the groom came down with severe food poisoning and was forced to miss his own wedding.

Workers came up with putting together a makeshift groom out of a clothing steamer on wheels and an iPad, which showed a graphic of the groom's face, so the bride could dance with her betrothed.

The idea, while a bit unorthodox, seemed to sufficiently hold the groom's place so the festivities could take place. The groom himself hopped onto the venue's TikTok page to let it be known how he felt.

"Groom here!" he wrote.

"HUGE thank you to the Victorian. This was our third attempt at a 'covid' wedding."

While at first glance, this seems like a rough start to a marriage, TikTokers had other ideas about how this would positively impact the couple's relationship.

"This marriage will last cause they'll always have something to laugh about during the bad times," wrote one good-natured user.

"I was there and it was still a great wedding," wrote one patron.

Life truly never goes the way one wants it to, so the only thing to do is be like this bride and this venue and think fast on how to keep the festivities going while taking care of the needs of the wedding party.

May we all have the serenity to do so should the time ever arise.
