She told the bride: “Well we can’t have that on your special day.” After gathering some details on where the wedding is and how many people, Lisa said: “Okay, sorted me and my assistant will be there. I’ll DM you now for details.” She added the hashtag, “can’t let the bride down.” Naturally the bride was over the moon that Lisa had saved the day!
