We all know that being a wedding planner is a quite difficult task – but, sometimes, weddings can provide the vendors some unique and quite funny experiences. We’ve asked a few wedding planners to tell about some of the most unbelievable moments of their careers. And, believe me: we could write a book with them! Have fun with these crazy and curious stories from wedding planners:
[one_third_first] Guadalupe Alvarez[/one_third_first][two_third_last]This was a very fun wedding. He is English and she is German, they met at the festival Burning Man! Fun fun party, very nice decor. But when the celebration finished, my staff went to the pool to dismantle the decor and came running to tell me that the bride was “celebrating” her marriage in the pool with her new husband and best men. Of course, we did not dismantle that day! LOL! So, yes, one day we should all write a book!![/two_third_last]
Sarah Day[/one_third_first][two_third_last]Let’s see where to begin:
– A groom was so drunk he could barely say the vows, bride refused to do the first dance and then he shoved cake so far in her face that it went up her nose, in her eyes and through her tiara. She ran out of the ballroom in tears with totally ruined makeup. They divorced six months later.
– A mom who sewed the bride’s wedding dress and it was crooked.
– The cake was left in the back of a car and melted in the August heat. They still required it be put on display, but not served.
– Wedding cake was delivered by the brother of the bride and showed up with a large hand print on the side from where it fell over in the car ride. [/two_third_last]
Rui Mota Pinto[/one_third_first][two_third_last] I had a bride who decided to throw the bouquet to the ground and leave saying that she wanted to go away and not to get married. [/two_third_last]
Suita Carrano[/one_third_first][two_third_last]The day before the wedding, we’ve received a list of who does what. Something like “at 9am brides does this, groom does that “. And that’s fine. But when going into the list: “at 12.30, bride takes a shower and put deodorant between the legs and under the arms” (OMG, who would forget this?!), groom takes a shower and put deodorant,etc”. So she was aware that this list was going to all the staff of the day (me and plus 10, as it was a huge huge wedding). Until this point, it was fine. Big problem came when it was groom’s turn to shower and he definitely refused to do it. They started to fight, with poor Agnese listening everything from the door ?. Agnese called me to ask what to do and I simply said not to smell the groom ?. All in all, it was a great experience and a great chance to understand how some people are strange. For part of my staff that I was training after my wedding planner course, it was indeed a great chance to make a decision for the life: stay in the business or quit forever .[/two_third_last]
