The funniest wedding I ever planned was on April 1, 2003 – April Fool’s Day. No kidding. The bride was the publisher of a wedding publication based in Seattle, the groom was a musician, and they had already been together 14 years.
I was given three weeks to organize everything, and because she promised free publicity for the venue, I was able to book the Pompadour room at the Hotel Meurice free of charge. No kidding. Except because the event was on April Fool’s Day, I had to reconfirm several times and assure the reception department this wedding was for real. Remember the French motto: “Méfie-toi!” (Be on your guard!)
