The last thing you want is to look forward to that day you will tie the knot, the day you will walk the isle or see your better half walk the isle, only for things to go haywire.

Whether it is your cake well baked and designed to your taste, whether it is the bridal gown or the groom´s suit, whether it is your event organizers taking care of every little detail.

Everything just needs to be perfect for you to enjoy your day!

However, many have fallen into the traps of con-artists out to squeeze money from you for either lower quality product or for nothing in return.

Now Kenyan production mogul and actor, Abel Mutua faced a similar scenario for his young wedding.

Rogue tailor

Through his YouTube channel Young & Stupid Ep8, the former Tahidi High actor recalled how we sought designer services from La Giacca, a brand with an Italian name meaning ´The Jacket´.

His first contact with the tailor gave him an impressive perception of the brand and he did not doubt one bit!

He told me that the lapel fabric on my blazer would be imported and the whole outfit would only cost KSh 60,000. I thought the price was fair because at a high-end shop, it would have cost KSh 300,000 and above.

Up-front, Abel paid the amount in full because of how much trusted the tailor.

His measurements were taken with a clean fit of the trends of that time. 3 weeks down the line and waiting, Abel was still confident with his tailor.

A month later, the tailor called and told him everything was done and even ready for wear but there was one thing he needed to work on, to complete the look.

The suit is ready to wear but there is a small piece of material that I haven´t received, give me one week to complete.

One week lapsed and his friends started growing doubts about the tailor but the young actor calmed them down.

The tailor however requested for another week, yet the actual wedding was just two weeks away.

He brought me another suit which he claimed had the same measurement and any adjustments would then be done on the actual outfit.

The tailor convinced him that in a few, he would bring back the complete suit, with every detail in place.

Turmoil

The TV personality never heard from his tailor until the eve of his wedding. The tailor came with the suit that allegedly was made of imported material but Abel could clearly tell it was locally made.

The tailor asked to go back with suit, to have it dry cleaned and pressed, ready for his big day. Promising to drop the suit by 4am the following morning – his wedding day.

6:30 am, Abel´s alarm went on but on inquiring from his groom team about any parcel that might have been dropped early morning, the response was ´no´.

They rang the tailor´s phone but his phone was not going through. They kept their hopes high and waited for about 7:00 am to call back.

One hour later, phone still not going through. The actor started getting uneasy that he might disappoint his bride but he never told her of the happenings.

9:30, he was getting late to get to church that was set for 10:00 am.

Quickly, the groom and his team agreed on a common theme and then borrowed friends and neighbors something to substitute because time was not on their side.

We went to church and immediately the bride walked in, she was shocked at our outfits. We were dressed in black and white like waiters. She could not tell the groom from the waiter. The wedding started and we proceeded to the reception.

Soon after the newly weds made their vows and already done with the reception, Abel´s phone rang and it was a notification that the tailor´s phone had now been switched on.

Since then:

I never heard from the tailor ever again. No apology, no remorse. From that day I learnt my lesson the hard way.
