What is the worst thing?

Many couples have asked me in the interview process what is the worst thing that has happened at an event that you have had to fix on the spot. I have to admit it has been awhile since something has happened. So when I was asked the question on Friday, I recalled a story of a few years ago when the bride went to put on her dress before leaving for the ceremony and it was four sizes to big. YIKES! Same dress style, not her dress!! So I get in touch with the bridal salon and they rush the dress over, iron it as quickly as they can. I keep the bride and groom as calm as possible and in the end it all works out. Note to bride: Always try on your dress before you leave the bridal salon for the last time. I hang up the phone after this call and think to myself, I am so glad these issues are rare. Fast forward to Saturday when everything is going smoothly at a wedding. Then the bus catches on fire. Yes, the one the was carrying most of the guests catches on fire en route to the venue. Thankfully, no one was hurt and we managed to have all the guests squeeze onto the other bus. Another bus from the company was called and made it to the venue so that everyone could get back o.k.. So I no longer will be thankful that is has been a long time since I have had an incident, I will be thankful that I can handle the incidents!
