By Annie N. in Funny On 6th December 2023

People want their wedding day to be perfect. With the smallest details being scrutinized by the bride and groom, vendors and caterers know just how high stakes the day is. 

But even for couples that can let the small things go, some things would ruin their day for them. One example would be actually being able to serve food to their guests.

This is when his coworker John received a call asking for their order. When John asked for clarity they said, "You were supposed to deliver our order for a wedding reception an hour ago."

Cue pit in stomach. John rushed to find a manager who would know something about this.

The wedding planner chewed out the manager and ended up ordering pizza and BBQ for a wedding.

OP said that perhaps the wedding planner was new since they had never received any phone calls before this moment to ask about the food.

It's usually the norm to check with vendors and caterers a few days before the event and get an update, which this wedding planner didn't do.
