Many women (and men!) dream about their fairytale wedding, but the reality can get Grimm a little faster than they’re prepared to deal with. With so much riding on their special day, it’s natural for bride or groom-to-be to get stressed out because of minor inconveniences. But when they start screaming at the florist because the planters are Emerald Mist instead of Shamrock Fog? It might be time to back away slowly.
1. With Friends Like These: “The bride asked me what colour her bridesmaids should wear. I told her that given all five of us were redheads, a pale, pastel lilac is the only colour which should be avoided, as it makes us look dead. Guess what dresses she picked? Floor length silk, pastel lilac. I assumed she’d forgot. Her sweet husband later told me that of course the bride has to put bridesmaids in awful dresses because she has to be the prettiest on the day.” (Propertealady)
Taking Her Measure: “This lady came in and demanded to be refit. She was claiming they made her dress too small. Our staff quickly took her back and started ensuring their measurements were correct that they used to have the dress made. Nope. She had gained 15lbs since her fitting. My boss said, “Ma’am, I’m not sure how to say this, but you’ve gotten bigger. The dress matches the measurements we took of you when you ordered the dress.” She threatened to call all kinds of police. Ultimately my boss said, “If you going to call anyone I’d recommend a gym.” The guy was brutal.” (_____FRESH_____)
