Crazy brides! Bizarre wedding requests

Germophobes! History buffs! Not content with any traditional wedding ceremony, these three brides made odd nuptial demands — and got them! Jennifer Glatt, wedding planning manager at 1-800-Registry, dishes about the most, ermm, “unique” requests she’s ever had from brides who want their wedding day to be the experience they’ve always dreamed about.

Crazy bride with sword

Porta potties

“One bride had a phobia of public toilets and was consumed with fear about using the restroom at her event venue. Our concierge service stepped in to help by referring a vendor that offered a portable, private washroom just for the bride. She even had fun with the idea and decided to go all-out, requesting a gold, embellished throne fit for a queen!”

Renaissance theme

“A bride and groom with strong ties to the Renaissance era requested a Renaissance-themed wedding. Easy enough. But one specific detail required a custom-made Celtic Claymore sword for the bride to present to the groom at the altar, in keeping with the Celtic tradition of days gone by. Not only did we find a vendor for this specialized item, but a staffer worked closely with the bride to guide her and further assist with the purchasing and presenting of the custom-made gift.”


“One of our concierges spoke with a bride who wanted a little piece of Italy in her wedding. She sought an authentic gondola to be delivered to her reception location to cradle the gifts from her guests, and we found a special vendor to provide it!”
