We deal with a lot of out of town brides. Far more than I would have guessed since Chattanooga, TN isn't a real tourist destination. Many people move away for school and careers and want to come home to marry with their families. The holidays are a very busy time for these brides as they all are home anyway. I try to save weekend openings for out of town brides too. I don't even list them on my online calendar because in towners would take them all.
I suppose this cake was "easy money" but I feel like we both missed out on a experience that would have added to the specialness of the wedding day. Unfortunately, this poor bride had some other mishaps and bad vendor experiences like the hair/makeup person cancelling the day of the event. That is just horrible! Much less her grandmother got stuck in an airport across the country and a groomsman broke his nose in a car wreck the day before. I'm glad that I spent some extra time making the cake a bit better than she was expecting. I know it didn't make up for the rest of it, but I sure didn't let her down either. Maybe I'll still meet her one day?
