Oh Brother Where Art Thou?
Several years ago, I got a phone call from the maid of honor for a wedding I was going to attend (as a guest) two weeks hence. She was flustered, but managed to get out “There’s no wedding, Groom called it off. He’s in love with someone else.”
Well, I didn’t press. I was friends with both, so I knew that the full details would eventually make their way back to me.
Oh, and boy did they…
Turns out, a couple weeks before the wedding, Groom called Bride and said he was coming over. They needed to talk. When he got to her apartment, he broke down in tears and confessed that he was in love with someone else. He loved her, but couldn’t marry her because he didn’t love her in the way a bride deserves.
There was much crying and shouting over it all, but eventually the bride recovered from the news enough to ask him who he was in love with.
“Well,” Groom said, “it’s [Bride’s Brother].”
The wedding was definitely off at that point. Now, five or six years later, Groom and Bride’s Brother are married and happy. Though, I lost contact with Bride shortly after her wedding plans went tits up, so I’m not sure if she ever forgave the boys for that one. (NexysVI)
Tales From a Wedding Planner
Hi there, part-time wedding planner here. I have a few of these.
1)Obligatory sex one: The bachelor party and the bachelorette party were being held in the same hotel in New Orleans (I tried to get them to do separate venues but nooooo. the group discount would cover an extra day in Carmel.) They begin at 8pm and collide drunkenly at about 3am. It was some kind of drunken fistfight-cum-orgy and everyone was so ashamed the next morning they called it off. Good News Everyone! They made up 6 months later and got married. They picked something simple, like their back yard this time.
2) F**king weird sex one. Bachelorette party turned out to be Homestuck themed, complete with Homestuck male strippers. (Please for the love of Christ DO NOT ASK WHERE I FOUND THOSE.) It got weird and the groom walked in on the bride riding a candy-corn colored horn. Groom noped the f**k out.
3)The Best One: so the couple has been sleeping together for a few years, she gets pregnant, and decide to get married. Months of planning go by and she begins to show. Bride’s parents wig right the f**k out, call her a slut, and forbid her to get married. They cancel the wedding, steal her parent’s car to elope, and torch the garage on their way out. It was magnificent. I did not get paid. (Darklordofbunnies)
Here is a more upbeat story: the night before their city hall wedding, the bride and groom had separate big parties and got so wasted they both slept through the wedding. They didn’t realize it until city hall called asking where they were, and they decided f**k it we’ll do it later. They did eventually get married, and still are as far as I know, over 20 years later.
