I'm about to apply WannaCry patch for my customer environment.

I know it will disable SMBv1 on server and their implication likes AD replication and login issue.
I wonder if there is any special procedure or pre/post action to follow after install the patches so I can minimize the impact and tackle the root cause in short time.

No.  Updates are proceeding because there are newer threats out. So just keep your Windows Updates current. That is the best way to approach this.

Remember as well to keep spam protection up to date and train users to NOT open emails from strangers. This is a bigger threat than Windows patches.
