A lot of the stories on this list, while nominal wedding fails, might not affect the moods of those in attendance that much. This one, however, is the kind of thing that will create a generations-long rivalry. A family, who wasn’t actually invited, chowed down on the entire cake, keeping the actual wedding couple from having any of it.
The explanation was lacking, and there was apparently no apology forthcoming, either. Nor was there an offer to replace the cake, or repay. The cake was theirs, now. Well, hopefully, that family is happy, because they aren’t going to have many chances for more.
There Was Also No Wine Opener
Well, needs must, even if that means you ripped some benches out of the ground so the elderly could take a load off. How hard is it for the chair guy to show up on time? Or show up at all, if this story is to be believed. People pay good money for fancy wedding chairs, and they expect to get their money's worth.
Which, at the very minimum, means there have to be chairs. That's just how things work. At least there was some nice, soft grass for people to perch upon as long as they could find a bare spot.
Hey Honey, How Did the Wedding Go?
Sure, this stunt might have ended up in the ER, but at least the bride didn't get hurt. That's what's really important here. Also, care to explain what “leaping the bridesmaid” is supposed to indicate? To us, it sounds like jumping over her as she crouches on the ground, but there are a lot of people out there who might think that it's something else.
Was this a planned event? Was the bridesmaid in on it? Was the bridesmaid also hurt? Let this be a lesson to everyone: drinks are fine, but make sure you can still do what you're supposed to do, such as not get hurt hurtling another person.
Quick, Get a Seamstress!
People who have been to more than one wedding know that you have to be prepared for anything, and that's why people have pockets and purses. A handful of safety pins will make sure that even the worst fashion accidents will be no problem until the night is over. Every maid of honor and best man should have a few at arm's reach.
It certainly isn't going to be comfortable – indeed, the groom chimed in to say driving to the church was a struggle – and it might be noticeable to some of the guests, but it's still better than going pantless. Or worse, wearing the wrong color trousers!
More than one best man has passed out at a wedding thanks to a combination of factors like heat, heavy clothing, uncomfortable shoes, and more. Still, these instances are relatively rare, unless you have a clairvoyant in the pews, of course. What happens after something like this?
The best man is revived, obviously, but then what? Does he just go on standing in the same spot? If he isn't relegated to a nice, comfortable pew, at least get him a chair so that it doesn't happen again. Everybody knows that passing out once is a coincidence, but passing out twice is a bad omen.
