Wedding Planner Meets Wedding Crasher
Play • 20 min

In conversation with New York-based wedding planner Mikie Russo, a man who has overseen wedding soirées for celebrities including NSYNC member Joey Fatone; Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers; and Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec, Mister Manners explores the fascinating world of coordinating nuptials.

Hear Mikie's thoughts on how to make couples and their families happy, along with his strategy for handling the inevitable facets of the special day that go wrong.

And yet, a wedding program with a typo or a centerpiece with wilty flowers are child's play at a time when couples getting married are hanging on every bit of news regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. It's a fair bet that planning a wedding has never been this challenging. There are so many unknowns in the mix that a day meant to be among the most joyous any of us ever experience has become a source of confusion and frustration. Tune in for the advice Mikie has been giving to his clients—all the while bearing in mind the inevitable etiquette issues associated with both postponing and not postponing.
