Happy Talk Events Vanishes
Lots of Scottish brides and grooms have had their big day plunged into chaos after hiring Happy Talk Events, based in Glasgow city centre, to provide everything from decor to dancefloors and candy carts.
Many couples have been left hung to dry after rumours a Scottish wedding planning service have mysteriously vanished with all their cash.
Despite the company, owned by Michelle McMorris and her husband Alistair, taking cash bookings as recently as Saturday of last week, their shop mysteriously never reopened after the Bank Holiday and is still shut! With rumours flying around many social media wedding groups, Happy Talk Events still failed to make an announcement.
Couples who had booked them were still in hope though that it was just some big misunderstanding – until it was confirmed that the company’s website and social media accounts disappeared from the face of the earth!
With employees thought to have been laid off in the last couple of weeks, it looks like they knew fine well when taking new bookings, they had no intention of honouring the bookings and even pushed for large cash deposits to be paid, with many brides being offered ‘to good to be true’ vouchers off their final bill if they managed to pay a large cash deposit.
With no representation from the company, it was left to employees to deal with the fall-out while being in the dark over their own futures. Disgruntled couples and suppliers alike have flooded to the Howard Street shop to get answers, but their was no sign of life.
After visiting the owner’s house, we found out from neighbours that they have done a flit to Florida where the owner’s apparently own another store and then we also learned that signs of trouble were brewing after the company had failed to turn up to a wedding on Saturday after the couple had splashed out £950 on their services.
There is still no comment from the owners of Happy Talk Events.

Update: Lynn Glasgow, the store manager of Happy Talk Events is trying to contact brides to help out. Please remember she has been let down too and left without a job and is doing this on her own back. Best of luck girls!
