Some practices of wedding etiquette should go without saying. Unless you’re the bride, don’t come in wearing a white dress, don’t make any personal phone calls during the ceremony, you know, that sort of thing.
Some people, however, need to have everything spelled out for them, like this groom, who somehow didn’t know it was wrong to sass to your future father-in-law or he might cancel the wedding on the spot. We’re happy for the bride to have managed to escape tying herself to this man.
Maybe She's Cursed
Get left at the altar once, shame on the spouse. Get left at the altar twice, shame on the witch who probably cursed you.
Sounds like if this woman wants her happily ever after with a special someone, she needs to take an actual wedding out of the picture. Either that or knock the man unconscious so this time he can't escape. He'll just wake up with a ring on his finger and have to deal with it.
Furious Flower Girl
When a groom leaves a bride and there's a lot of emotion flying around. Everyone's sad for the bride who had her heart broken, sorry for the parents who paid for the whole event, and just plain angry for the loss of a few perfectly good hours gone to waste.
What about the flower girl, though? Has anyone thought of her and how a nine years old kid had her moment in the spotlight shamelessly robbed from her?
Paid in Full
Many of the grooms we see in this article didn't handle the situation very politely or gracefully. They were mostly focused on getting out of the place and putting as much distance as possible between themselves and everyone else at the venue for all eternity.
Not this groom, though. Sure, his act of leaving his fiancee when the guests are still streaming in was low, but he faced things head-on and paid for everything even if it took him six years.
Don't Worry, Friend
Yes, this is an article about runaway grooms, but this story of a runaway bride was just so good we just couldn't leave it out. After realizing her life was shaping into something she didn't want, she just had to bolt.
Okay, okay, you caught us. This is actually Rachel's story from "Friends," but at least we know this one got her happily ever after, even if there was a break somewhere along the way. (Or was there?)
