Wedding bells are ringing!
There’s nothing quite like a good wedding. Weddings are a gathering of people who all love and care about one another, coming together to celebrate the union of two spouses-to-be.
On the flip of that, there’s also nothing more entertaining than a bad wedding. There’s a reason that horrible, mid-wedding revelations and breakups are the plots of so many soap operas. They’re normally pretty crazy.
These folks opened up about the craziest weddings they’ve ever been to, and they’ll put some of those soap opera plots to shame.
I randomly remembered a wedding I went to years and years ago where the grandmas wheelchair was left without its brakes on at the top of a big flight of steps outside the registry office. She rolled forward, all the way down, cracked her head open on the slabs, ambulance took her off on blue lights, and the bride spent the reception scrubbing blood out of her train poor bloody woman. It was horrific. sad (Nan fine in the end) (WashingMatilda)
I think the worse one I ever went to was in Scotland, the issue was too many guests, the church was rammed. The venue was too small, I was heavily pregnant and couldn’t actually get from one side of the venue to the other due to my bump and people squashed in. It was like the busiest pub.
There were outbuildings that we were expected to use but they smelt of cow s**t. There was a barn that children were meant to eat in. The main meal was a hot buffet, served at 9pm, the wedding was at 1pm. It was in the middle of the countryside so no option to find food elsewhere.
The grooms speech thanked the venue for doing their first ever wedding?!
It rained harder than the monsoon I experienced overseas. (Minkyfluffster)
Bride’s father who was in his mid-fifties died very suddenly a few days before the wedding, and begged the bride with his dying breath not to cancel the wedding. Bride walked down the aisle in floods of tears, whole day very subdued – marriage lasted a couple of years I think. Shame, they were a nice couple but the bride was very close to her father, and absolutely prostrate with grief – I don’t think the marriage ever had a chance to thrive.
Very sad. In retrospect they would have been better off postponing. (Threehoursfromhome)
