Yikes! A bride who’d been drinking detox shakes in a bid to banish last-minute bloating found herself in a messy situation on the big day.

The wedding planner, who assisted the bride in the build-up to the wedding and on the day, recounted the horror story on Reddit.

“The bride had, to be honest, been quite a bridezilla, but it’s my job to deal with those things. At this point the ceremony had ended, cocktail hour is shutting down and professional photos were taken,” she wrote.

But as they were preparing for the bride and groom’s first dance and cake cutting ceremony, the wedding planner’s assistant alerted her to an emergency, Mirror UK reports.

“It turns out the bride had gambled on a fart and lost in a big way,” the wedding planner recounted. 

There was no way they could’ve got the bride to the bathroom in time, according to the wedding planner.

The detox shakes the bride had been taking coupled with the cocktails she’d been drinking during cocktail hour had resulted in what the wedding planner described as “a substance that defied explanation”.

Eventually the wedding planner was able to cut the bride out of her dress, which cost £12 000 (R222 000), and sponge her down.

Dressed again and offered anti-anxiety medication, the bride continued as though nothing had happened but decided to skip dinner that evening.
