“I’ve had a lot of crazy requests in my career, but some of the highlights would have to be: suspending a giant wedding cake over the dance floor, hot air balloon rides for guests during the cocktail reception at an outdoor wedding in upstate New York, David Guetta requested as the DJ for an after-party, dropping a grand piano into a cave in Italy for a pianist to perform during dinner, an all-vegan menu for a 300-person wedding, turning an entire kitchen into a kosher kitchen at a five-star luxury property, and the coup de grâce…changing location of the wedding from the East Coast to Mexico during the 10 minutes the mother of the bride was out of the room in a planning meeting.” —Matthew Robbins, event planner and designer, and founder of Matthew Robbins Design

Being a wedding planner is not for the faint of heart. Not only do you have to deal with stressed-out brides on the regular, but also the wild cards, like an opinionated mother of the groom, high-maintenance bridesmaids and flaky vendors.

“I had a bride tell her bridesmaids they could select their own dress as long as it was a specific color of pink, but then she asked the girls to bring their dress to a bachelorette party in Miami. There she proceeded to make each one get a spray tan from a celebrity colorist (which the bridesmaids had to pay for on their own) so they could try on their dresses in person for her final approval.” —Anonymous

“A month prior to a wedding, I met with a client to discuss final details only to be surprised with a rather shocking story and request. The bride shared with me that her estranged father was just released from prison and might try to make an appearance at their wedding. She requested that we hire major security in the event he showed up trying to get even with family members. Luckily no crazy family showed up. The wedding ended beautifully and the newlyweds were so happy!” —Erica Rexroat, wedding planner and founder of One Love By Erica

“A bride’s father surprised her with homemade moonshine wedding favors. As cute and pink as they were, I shared with her that we could not disperse to guests because it was illegal for guests to consume outside alcohol at the venue. The bride begged and we came to an agreement with the venue coordinator that a placard must be displayed for guests stating no consumption on property. Well, we all know that didn’t happen. An hour into the reception, we had people falling onto tables, disappearing into the expansive property (which was on the water) and you name what else. This wedding ended as a drunken mess that couldn’t be controlled to say the least.” Erica Rexroat

Whether it is hiring a wedding planner or just having a consultation to figure out a couple things you are stuck on. Weddings are so expensive. I can' t believe how much money my wedding has added up to be. Plan a budget!" - -Iesha Palmer.

“We had two gorgeous ballroom options for one of my weddings and I was thrilled that the favorite of the two was available for what I thought was going to be a very fun event. It turns out the bride was very demanding—especially with regards to anything related to the decor of her wedding. This was a historic property so it has a very particular look and many rules that protect the aesthetic of the space. After booking she asked me (with a straight face) if we could repaint the ballroom to match her colors. I promptly said no and that was the easiest part. The biggest challenge was answering her without laughing.” —Meghan Ely, former wedding planner and owner of OFD Consulting

“Every couple that attended one of my weddings received a complimentary night's stay at the hotel. This is standard practice in the area and would come as no surprise to anyone attending the wedding; the bride and groom had been great to work with until this very detail came up. They were incredibly sensitive to the idea of people even knowing they were spending their first night there, so they made us come up with an elaborate plan in which they did the grand exit and then we slipped them through the kitchen and back hallway to get them upstairs. It sounds easier than it actually was. It forced the kitchen to rework their schedule to make space for the couple to slip in and out so no one knew they spent their first night together at the hotel where they had their wedding.” —Meghan Ely

“One of the most memorable requests I’ve received as a wedding planner was to ensure the bride and groom's dog made it home safely after their wedding ceremony. At first glance this should be a simple solution, a.k.a. have a family member or friend drive him back. Nope, the bride and groom did not want the guests to miss a moment of their big day, so after considering a number of ways to safely get the pooch home, we finally came up with the idea of Uber! Thankfully, an acquaintance of the couple was an Uber driver and we made special arrangements for him to come after the wedding family photos to escort the dog home. What a funny scene this was seeing the dog—who did I mention donned a pair of wayfarer sunglasses—jet off in an Uber from their wedding by himself. Getting a text message photo update that the dog was in fact home safely was the best part.” —Kristine King, president and lead event director at Kristine King Events

“One of my brides did a full Harry Potter–themed wedding, where every guest was required to dress for the theme and have their costume approved by the bride to ensure only one character was represented at the event, including a head-to-toe commitment with full hair and makeup. The bride's gown also included a 30-inch train and veil and the bridal party was in full costume with a choreographed wedding ceremony with horns and scripted dances, Quidditch during cocktails, and a private two-hour photoshoot in the forest with real smoke and mirrors.” —Anonymous
