Great Saves...it’s always something at every wedding, but here are a few.
The bridesmaid that got sick in the limo
...and all over herself, just as the limo was pulling up in front of the church, about 15 minutes before the ceremony and just before the bride arrived in a classic car behind them. We grabbed the baby wipes and paper towels for the worst of it. Next, we used the body-fresh deodorant wipes along with some stain remover. All was tossed away in a plastic garbage bag. We had her stand in the sunshine until the time for the ceremony to begin and no one, not even the bride, noticed.
When they dropped the bride during the Hora
...and as she fell, her groom reached for her and also fell, right on top of her. We grabbed the ice pack and ace bandage from our emergency kit, plus a few Advil, and our Bride was back on her feet in no time. Watch for us on “Funniest Home Videos”!
When her mother drooled red dye on the brides’ gown
...just as we were entering the room to check on the bride, who was getting dressed. The mother of the bride had recently gotten new false teeth and was having a bit of trouble with them. She had just taken a cherry cough drop. She zipped her daughter’s gown and turned her around to say how beautiful she looked. As she spoke, she accidentally spat red dye right down the front of the wedding dress. Shout wipes in our pockets and perfect timing saved the dress. We instantly jumped in and began clean the stain. It all came out but a faint pink that no one noticed. Even so, the mom cried for 15 minutes.
When the groom forgot his black socks
...he called down from his hotel room to the ballroom, where we were setting up for the reception. He had to be ready for pictures in 10 minutes and knew his bride would kill him if he was late. We had him meet us at the elevator with black socks...we carry those in our e-kit (emergency kit), too.
When they forgot honeymoon luggage
...at home and had a flight at 7:00 a.m. She thought the luggage was in her mother’s hotel room and the parents thought it was in her’s. Finally, at the end of the evening around 1:00 a.m., they realized it was left behind. They went to their bridal suite and we went to their parent’s home and got the luggage. We dropped it back at the hotel where it would be ready for the happy couple as they caught a shuttle at 5 a.m. to the airport. At least they were able to get a few hours of “sleep”.
