Caterers have to do a lot, depending on what you ask of them, but “toilet service” isn’t often something that they get into the work for. Slinging dishes of fancy food and serving up drinks, maybe, but the bathroom generally isn’t their area. Nor should it be. Sounds unsanitary.
What’s worse, all that good stuff that weddings are known for often creates plenty of urgencies when it comes to using the restroom – having to manually refill the toilets every time will slow things down to the point that every single guest could be waiting in line. That’s what we call service.
This Is Called Foreshadowing
At the very least, it's good that this didn't happen DURING the wedding. Getting to the venue and finding that beautiful little church you picked out now has a gaping hole in it because some teenager is going to put a damper on your plans, but knowing the place wasn't packed with guests is a relief.
Otherwise, things could have gone really differently, "Game of Thrones Blood Wedding" kind of differently. And we can't help but say that a BBQ restaurant called Hole-In-The-Wall sounds like the perfect place to cater a rehearsal dinner. You KNOW that place has some great sauces.
I Hope Everybody Knows Each Other
While we'd normally not recommend doing something to surprise the bride on the day of the wedding, this doesn't seem like such a bad idea as long as the music is something she would appreciate. Of course, a bride is always going to be antsy about the wedding day.
Maybe she'll get there two hours early to make sure everything is just the way she wants it for her trip down the aisle. This is why the surprise singers and accompanists had to sit inside a closet. We hope it was a big closet. The last thing the couple needed was a suffocated singer.
Maybe She Was Crying From the Smoke
Was it actually great, though? Was it great that the church almost caught fire and the bride started crying? Memorable, yes, and funny after enough time has passed, but great?
Look, we've all been at a wedding where one of the candles decides to create some issues. Open flames and lots of lace together in the same place aren't exactly chocolate and peanut butter. What was supposed to be a bit of soft lighting and a pleasant smoky smell turns into ruined dresses and burned skin. Memorable, yes...but great? Great is nailing the splits on the dance floor, this is dangerous.
We All Have Our Priorities
A member of the catering staff dropping a bowl or a glass on the ground is pretty common, just because of all the moving and carrying they do, but tripping over someone who had bent down to pet a cat is a little rarer. Thankfully, nobody was hurt (except for the glasses of wine), and the cat got a great name out of it.
We can't help but notice that the person doing the petting might have been a little more observant not to stop in the middle of a walkway and crouch down. Just keep your head on a swivel, that's all we're asking.
