The bridesmaids’ purple dresses had been custom-fitted, but when the mother of the bride found out, she ordered the dresses returned. She was planning to wear the same color.
Stories like this make actress Cheryl Platz grateful that the plans for her September wedding have gone relatively smoothly.
“It calls into attention all the moving pieces that can go wrong,” she said.
Platz is a cast member of “Wedding Horror Stories,” an original, improvised comedy show staged by Seattle Experimental Theater that will premiere Thursday. During each performance, the cast will re-create wedding mishaps solicited from the audience during the show.
