Couch Potato's Tuesday Trivia: How The Wedding Date filmmakers stopped Messing getting into a mess
In 2005 romcom The Wedding Date, Will & Grace's Debra Messing plays Kat - a single woman who decides to hire a male escort (Dermot Mulroney) to help her save face in front of her ex-fiancé at her sister's wedding.
However, forget that hired hunk, it was actually The Wedding Date's filmmakers that saved Messing's face - literally.
The actress is allergic to flowers you see. So, to avoid a big red eye and sneezing disaster during the shooting of the wedding scenes, the filmmakers had to replace the usual fresh blooms with a load of fake blossom.
The Wedding Date is showing today - 24th May - on Film4 at 7.10pm
