What’s scarier than an empty candy bowl on Halloween? Some of the crazy things you end up doing or seeing as a wedding planner! So, in the spirit of the season, here are some of our community’s most memorable (and spooky) moments. Happy haunting!
Does the time I had to send the mother of the groom home early because she was intoxicated by 5:15pm count? Dinner started at 5pm, LOL!

How about having to ask the mother of the groom to leave the private ceremony because she wasn’t invited?! Horror!!!

I tripped carrying the cake, split my big toe nail in half, shattered my phone screen but saved the cake!

My groom disappeared. He was at the altar. Then he wasn’t. Bridesmaids and groomsmen are coming down the aisle. No groom. Finally after the last couple (there were 16). The groom reappears in the white tux I told him he couldn’t wear. He had previously entered the ceremony in the pre approved black tux.

For a destination Kauai wedding, I had to play impromptu lifeguard when the drunken bridal party (all ten of them) decided to all go skinny dipping in the ocean in complete darkness after the last dance. They invited the wedding photographer along… AND i’ve got pictures to prove it!

An intoxicated guest called the police on ME when he couldn’t find his personal items that he left unattended, because of course the wedding planner is a security guard too. Police showed up and asked if I wanted to press charges on HIM!
