You may not remember all of the weddings you have been too but I am sure that there are some that were so beautiful or meaningful that you do. That being said, the bad ones … the ones where “OH SNAP DID THAT JUST HAPPEN” things happen. I am sure you won’t forget those weddings. These stories are amazing... enjoy.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What happened at a wedding that still to this day makes you cringe?

  • My DJ kept singing karaoke and I had to ask her to play music and stop singing
  • Father of the groom pummeled the father of the bride. Police, ambulances, chaos. Total Jerry Springer style wedding.
  • My husband's friend was so drunk and spilled a glass of red wine on me. I cried
  • My ex husband said “I take you, my awfully wedded wife.” It’s on VHS. Hence the Ex.
  • A mother of the groom demanding she have the first dance rather than the bride and groom.super awkward
  • Was at one that the bridesmaid speech was so long that people groaned when she said she'd get to that later and at one point someone in the crowd literally played cricket noises on their phone
  • Bride drunk, passed out in car after meal
  • My wedding as I was saying my vows I fainted
  • Our dj did a no show
  • I went to a wedding where the woman marrying the couple showed up drunk. Kept stumbling over the ceremony and had the “kiss the bride” like 5 times before they ever took their vows and said I do
  • My sister was potty training. At a wedding she hauled booty out of the bathroom with her diaper in hand and dress up, proudly exclaiming "Daddy, I went potty!"
  • I laughed all the way through our vows! The whole church was laughing. Then the pastor announced us with my last name
  • My sister, the bride, fell and tore her ear lobe. Had to go to ER for stitches
  • My cake was in accident five blocks from reception had to scramble a sheet cake
  • Well, I was pretty excited about this wedding because I had a hot, strapless dress and my hair and makeup turned out so nice. I was pretty buzzed and then Quad City DJ's C'mon Ride The Train came on so I jumped on the train. Next thing I know I did a 'Choo choo', looked down and my strapless dress was suddenly below my chest...the dress was too tight to have worn a strapless bra with it. So, I quickly pulled it up, booked it to the bathroom and sat embarrassed but hoping no one saw my full slip... Until the bride came in and asked if it was me whose dress came down while chugging to the train. I still cringe when I think of the embarrassment.
  • We thought our first dance song was done and tried to exit the floor, but then realized it wasn’t. And then I knocked the glasses off his face with my arm.
  • My sisters wedding had a full on brawl in the lobby between a few families in which I was hit in the face by a 300 pound man.
  • The Groom's cell phone started ringing during the vows.
  • I went to a wedding for a family member where the food was made and brought by some of the guests. So potluck style. No biggie. What was is the fact that it was 95 that day and the majority of the people left the food in their cars until after the wedding. Needless to say we didn't stay for the reception.
  • The fact that I said, I do
  • We had our wedding at a public place during the holidays...we had 6 random wedding crashers who heard our music from elsewhere in the venue...they even signed my guest book!
  • My MIL after we got introduced as Mr and Mrs " forgive them father as they know not what they do" grrrrrrr
  • My friend was the bride and was marrying an older man. That older man was the father of a friend that we grew up with. Oh, and that friend officiated the wedding. So my friend is now the stepmom of someone her own age. The whole wedding was cringe. Oh, and it was a redneck wedding
  • Maid of honor WASTED giving a speech. I almost tackled her to make it stop!
  • The minister called the bride by the wrong name.
  • I can't answer this for myself - but I can answer this for my husband. A few years ago he was apart of the wedding party. The groom was doing the garter toss & the photographer caught the moment just great. One of the guys dove to grab it & his foot came up between my husbands knees.....guys imagine the instant pain & then the photographer caught the moment on camera.The bride asked a guest when she was “due” and grabbed her belly…turns out she just hadn’t recovered from the last one.
  • A guest at the wedding doing cocaine in the bathroom and being caught (and kicked out) by my uncles…
  • Most cringe worthy moment was at my first wedding..I said “I do” still to this day makes me cringe!!
  • The bride was saying her vows and her sister ( who had pregame before the wedding) started laughing as loud as she could and wouldn't stop. She had to be escorted out of the church
  • During the ceremony, the pastor/officiant said “May God watch over your love-making.” Mmm…say what? Did he really say that? Talk about pressure.
  • My uncle got a head start on drinking at my reception and tried to cut in to my daddy/daughter dance with a dollar. In front of everyone. I was mortified and really bummed that my special moment with my dad was soured.
  • My sister had a massive heart attack and died while we wee dancing. Luckily, she was came back while we were talking with the organ transplant team the next day. She was on a ventilator, and showed no brain function.
  • This one was really crazy! My cousin got married many years ago at a church. thankfully it’s still there. During the ceremony, the grooms younger brother appeared to be out of sorts. As he stood up front with everyone while the vows were taken, he was swaying back and forth ever so gently. I kept my eye on him for a few seconds, when suddenly he passed out and tipped the candelabra over catching the church on fire. I couldn’t believe my eyes as everyone was stamping out flames up front and center. I will never forget that day as long as I live.
  • Our minister didn't drink enough water before our ceremony and overheated and threw up in the middle of it
  • I married the guy.......twice
  • That someone proposed on someone else’s wedding day as that took the special day off the bride and groom and now onto the engaged couple when that could have waited on their own day.
  • I went to a wedding years ago for my (now ex) husband's co-worker. The young bride was about 8 months pregnant and they apparently just got her a dress off the rack that was way too big for her and had an open back, but she had on a regular dingy white bra so you could see the strap across the middle of her bare back. Also during the unity candle lighting, both the bride and groom's moms were lighting the outside candles and didn't have matches or anything so his mom turned to the guests and yelled, "hey. Anybody got a light?!" The groom looked bored to death, barely looking at his bride, and the bride looked miserable. It was awful.
  • The last 5 tables didn’t get any food. Seriously not even a carrot stick
  • Bouncer kicked out my underage friends, my mom got upset with bouncer, originally we wanted the back bar shut down. Venue wouldn't do it. Then that happened during our dance time frame. Cops came to settle the dispute. the bar shut down then... thanks venue for a memorable night. I was 20, hubby 22. Drinking age 21.
  • The couple getting married already had kids. During the ceremony one of them was trying to get their parents attention so me knowing the kid well I stood up to get her and take her out. The mother of the groom snatched the little girl by the arm for her to sit down. The bride stopped the ceremony to tell her if she touched her daughter like that again then she wouldn’t have an arm.
  • My wedding....I had a few liquid courages and called out my MIL (who is not my biggest fan andalso is a terrible human) and who I also had to BEG to come for my husband's sake...and I let her know Im not goin anywhere now mf!!!...We have 3 kids and havent spoken to her in 4 years
  • Well I had a couple of things, my bridesmaid had stuffed her dress in her underwear, so for the bridal dance she had her underwear showing, the girls and I stopped and got on swings and the photographer started taking pictures and another bridesmaid, when she was coming down on the swing her dress flew over her head!
  • My husband's grandpa broke his hip walking to sit down. Sat through the whole ceremony (unknown to us), then went to the hospital afterwards.
  • after the best man gave a very touching, well rehearsed speech it was the maid of honors turn to make a speech at which point she stood up and went, ‘Well.. I don’t really know what to say except that ____ and ____ make the best couple ever!!’ … it could just be me and nobody really said anything but if my maid of honor didn’t even prepare a speech I’d be pissed
  • All of our food that was in slow cookers was frozen when we got to the hall. A circuit blew and no one knew all afternoon!
  • Some friends of friends crashed our wedding, took the decorative mirrors off the centerpieces and used them to do coke in the bathroom
  • The bride and groom making out during the entire reception
  • My mom got married a few years ago, the minister that married them called her husband the wrong name I would've noped out of that real quick
  • My parents wedding. They didn’t decide to get married until my 2 siblings and I were grown and out of the house. They were together for 34 years before getting married. My dad left everything up to my mom because he thought it was a waste of time. She had called some random DJ out of the yellow pages (we still had phone books in 2009). She never met with them prior to the wedding day to go over what songs to play. These two guys had no clue what they were doing and my mom was clueless about songs to play. Five minutes before the wedding was supposed to start the DJ asked me what song they wanted to walk to. My mom said “the wedding song” of course there’s 5 million versions. He played a few bars of about 5 songs and she picked one. So here comes my mom (in her 50s) walking out to Queen’s wedding March- with heavy electric guitar riffs. Everyone was quite shocked at her musical choice. Then my dad (who has COPD) was saying his vows and couldn’t because he couldn’t breathe and had to stop to use his rescue inhaler and he just waved his hand at the minister and said “I’m done.” The minister was confused but skipped the rest of his vows and went on with the ceremony. LOL
  • Sooo, I’ll start by saying I was my sisters MOH when she got married. By the end of the night I’d had a bit much to drink (I vaguely remember this btw) and the DJ was done for the night. Apparently I was not done… Donned in a blow up doll picture frame we affectionately named ‘Brad’ and a green feathered boa from the photo booth, I grabbed my phone and started playing music-singing, dancing, completely by myself and apparently took a trip to the photo booth for some selfies… my sister still brings it up …I was just living my best life that night is the only excuse I have. At least I got a copy of the selfie’s taken lol
  • Best man vomited, maid of honor passed out, another bridesmaid fainted, mother & father of bride helped the girls out of church, father & mother of groom helped best man out of church (extremely HOT summer day). By the time the bride & groom exchanged vows, only one attendant on each side was left - no parents. Hot mess!
  • When my girlfriend was in the wedding as a maid of honor and she wore a ivory dress and walk to the bathroom of the red stain in the back of her dress I jumped her in the bathroom made her change and gave her my clothes. I walked out of there with very little and put a smile on my face.
  • A baby was locked in a car on a hot August day at my friend’s wedding. At my wedding, my dad invited half the town and thought they were actually coming and included them in our guest count, my dress didn’t fit when it came in, and I forgot an entire table from my seating chart.
  • The MOH showed up with this hair style, mind you all the girls had beautiful updos and curls with flowers. She followed her off wedding look with an equally off wedding speech at the reception. The first five minutes of her speech were about how much she hated the groom and all the things she tried to do to break them up, including trying to book her friends up with another guy while he was away at boot camp, then without adding any positives about their relationships, ended with "Well, I guess somethings are meant to be despite better judgements."
  • I was made of honor in my friend's wedding and during the ceremony the groom's niece was on the altar and a puddle started flowing down the marble floor and she was standing still. Didn’t move an inch. She was rescued from the altar after she peed!
  • meeting my ex ☠️ he ended up manipulating me & lying to me
  • A child was left alone while the dad (her custody that day) was screwing someone in the parking lot. For hours this girl was all alone. She was maybe 6…. Terrible.
  • My cousin got smashed at the reception and knocked over the dj's speakers.
  • Alterations woman thought the wedding was the next day and...she was out of town! Fortunately her husband was able to leave work and deliver the wedding dress!
  • At my cousin's wedding. My grandma walked into a bathroom stall to another one of my cousins having balloon animals with the best man. 20 years later and we still talk about it.
  • When I hear this story from my hubby I cringe so bad. He did the dance of the flaming a--hole which he stripped down naked except for socks and shoes, put a 20 foot or so of toilet paper in his crack, had it lit on fire and ran through the reception. I have seen the pics.. I just shook my head
  • Soooo much from my own wedding. To pick just one, my husband at the time did burnouts in the parking lot of our reception venue and got the cops called. Kudos to my friends for keeping me shielded from it that night - I didn’t find out until the next day when the office manager called to let me know about the damage to their asphalt and that I would not be getting my deposit back.
  • I married my ex husband....
  • A dude who wasn't the husband banged the bride.
  • 30 people didn't get a meal because they ran out of food
  • Our Minister did not follow what we asked for our sand unity and even said he gave up his Saturday to be there so we better sit there and listen to what he has to say
  • My father in law told my husband it would be funny to pull giant panties out from under my dress when he went up for my garter, then his friend thought it would be funny to have all the guys step back when the gater was thrown (all of which I found incredibly embarrassing). To top it all off it was the year the song “red solo cup” came out and my husband's uncle brought red solo cup t-shirts for everyone to wear and made me put one on over my dress. Needless to say I wish we would have eloped.
  • A Toilet from a business above our reception hall leaked all over one of our tables!
  • When we were doing wedding photos my husband’s grandmother was standing next to me and said “I think I just peed my pants.”
  • Master of Ceremonies toasted to the old girlfriend instead of the bride....A guy died on the dance floor and was brought back to life....
  • My dad said in his speech “Welcome to the family Greg.” My husband’s name was Jim.
  • I was at a friend's wedding in NYC. The Chef came out and destroyed the cake with a huge knife, then a cat started to chase a mouse and the mouse ran in-between 2 elephants that were carrying the bride and groom. Then the elephant that carried the bride got scared and the bride fell off. Then the groom's dog starting chasing the cat. Everything was destroyed. Apparently, the NYC hotel had a mouse problem and hired the cat who they named Tom to get the mouse but the mouse kept getting away and ruined everything.
