From the Desk of the Tuxedo Mask:
Let me tell you about a GROOMZILLA that made himself look like an ass. This little Napoleon-sized man has an attitude far larger than his body can support.
When he and the very nice bride booked with my store, they both agreed to let the bride's father have the free rental. Fair and very nice to give away the free rental normally reserved for the groom. Now fast forward to pick up day. The groom comes in with his father and demands that the free rental was for his father not the brides. ODD as the bride and groom both signed for the free rental to be for her father not his.
He now asks for me to swap the free rental to his father, without letting the brides father know... NO WAY! think about it folks, how would you feel to have been told 2 months earlier your tuxedo was free then show up on pick up day to find out other wise. I told him "I could have done that a week ago after first letting the brides father know, but its pick up day. He will be in here with-in the hour." I further told him that perhaps this communication error can be resolved between him and the bride without involving the store. He went into a rage...
His wedding had plenty other issues, mast of them having to do with the other men in the wedding party. He had chosen not to tell anyone to get proper measurements done. Despite combating this as much as I could there was still a groomsman who needed an over night air package flown in because he did not get professionally measured. LOL, he refused to pay the shipping cost and thus had to wear what he ordered, wrong size and all.
The moral of the story folks is listen to your vendor and communicate with them. The vendor has done thousands of weddings...how many have you done? One... When I tell you to get measured properly its not a suggestion.
Also bating and switching prices on your family is not a good way to start a relationship with the in-laws. I most likely saved you from being punted like a football during the reception.
God knows, I wanted to punt you out of my store!
