The Cake Literally Ended The Wedding
“One of my instructors in culinary school owned a super high-end bakery before he became a professor. He once had a bride who wanted a particular shade of pink sugar flowers on her cake, but she would not bring in a color swatch no matter how many times she was reminded. So, the wedding rolled around and Chef just did his best to guess what color she wanted. When the bride saw that the cake wasn’t the perfect shade of pink she had a total meltdown in the midst of all of her guests. On the floor sobbing and screaming. THEN she took Chef to court and sued because the color of the cake caused the couple to be unable to consummate their marriage (I mean, amongst other things like emotional trauma). She was asking for the cost of the cake plus an exorbitant amount of damages, like $30000. They barely got before a judge before it was thrown out.”
No Suits, No Problem
“The morning of my brother’s wedding, all the men are out having a round of golf outside of town while the women go to the salons to get their hair & nails done for the big day. Beautiful. Sunny. Playing a great round, and one of my brother’s best in his life. The sun and stars have aligned.
Then the Best Man’s phone rings…
He answers said phone, and he is chipper & cordial. It’s the rental place that has the party’s Tuxedos and that they’re ready for pick-up at the previously specified time. All appears well as the BM goes through the list: Pants are pressed? Good. Shoes were shined? Yup. Vests were the proper color? Great. Jackets had the right flowers to be pinned on? Uh oh.
At that last statement, the best man’s face turns a dazzling array of colors that I had previously only seen at a dance club. White, to green, to red, to purple, to what I can only describe as ‘Crimson Murder.’ The jackets are not ready and had not been ordered. The wedding is in 4 hours. Mass amounts of swearing ensue. BM hangs up and without saying a word starts heading to his car to return to the city (a 45-minute drive that he achieved in about 20). The best man had the original contract in the car and showed it to the company proving that the jackets were, in fact, on the order.
At the end of the day, after using quite possibly every threat known to mankind, jackets are procured from another rental place about an hour before the wedding and everything went off without a hitch afterward. Good times.”
The Leaning Tower Of Cake
“My sister is a professional cake artist and made a coconut creme cake for a bride in June. She has two jobs and was scheduled to work during the ACTUAL wedding so I was charged with transportation and set-up. Everything was fine – except the wedding was in June and before the ceremony was even over, the coconut creme filling started to melt from INSIDE the cake, causing it to slide. This three-tier white cake looked like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. So I managed to flag down the venue coordinator and had them pull the cake from display just moments before it completely fell apart. Thank God it was in their kitchen. So I had to run to Tom Thumb (who makes BEAUTIFUL deli cake) and purchase two coconut cakes and basically make a cake for them to cut for pictures since the collapsed cake had fallen while on a sterile kitchen surface and was still edible – just not pretty at all anymore. The bride actually had no idea that anything had happened but I was in a sheer panic for almost two hours.”
The Best Man Drops A Major Bomb
“I went to an incredibly fancy wedding at a country club. The groom and his cousin, the best man, started a business together and were very wealthy. At the wedding, the best man gets trashed. When he starts his best man speech he starts poking fun at the groom. Then all of a sudden things got real awkward FAST!”
