For potential brides and grooms out there, remember that the wedding is your time, but the reception is for your guests. It’s a party, all about you, but the point of the reception is to make sure everyone else is happy. Don’t get us wrong, there are lots of things just for you, but if there are no guests, there’s no reception.
And sometimes vice versa, too. While embarrassing your guests for their choice of music isn’t always the best idea, choosing a song like “Christmas Shoes,” which is almost universally disliked, deserves to be mocked. The guest was game, however, and decided to put on a show.
Are You Sure? She's Kinda Important
We didn't know this could happen. A wedding really only needs two people, and if one of them isn't there, you can't really have a wedding. Of course, if it's a busy day and there are other weddings to get to, then sometimes you have to hurry things along.
Plus, a good hour of a Catholic wedding (we assume) is the sermon, which doesn't really require the bride and groom. They might be able to pick up some good advice, but it isn't like there will be a test. How long did he go without the bride, and, also, why was the bride so late to her own wedding?
A Fall to Remember
Nerves affect everyone, even the people that aren't in the spotlight. Sure, the bride and groom are supposed to get jitters, and the ring bearer might not like all the attention, but the MoH is supposed to be there to make things easier, not to fall down the steps.
It was all fine, though – nobody in their right mind could get upset at someone for falling down the stairs. She wasn't hurt, and eventually, she settled into her stance alongside the bride as the service went on. And good news! The video was captured, which means lots of people everywhere have seen this young woman's embarrassing moment.
Siblings Never Change
Sisters and brothers might have grown up, moved out, gotten jobs, started businesses, and gotten married, but they're always still siblings. They grew up together, which means there are always going to be little spats, making fun of each other, and embarrassing memories brought up at the best times.
A wedding photographer happened to catch a snapshot of a member of the wedding party falling out of another bridesmaid's arms with a terrified look on her face, and it became one of the central parts of the decoration in the new bride's house. No doubt the sister is reminded of it every time she visits. If it isn't that way, it should be.
A Hockey Game Broke Out at the Wedding
Some people might watch a little bit too much wrestling if this is the immediate response to an action like the story relates. Of course, we don't know if he grabbed the chair unaware that it was destined to be the bride's perch, or if he did it on purpose because he thought it would be funny to see her fall.
If the latter is the case, then maybe he does deserve to be hit with a Stone Cold Stunner or something like that. Also, congratulations to the bride who has enough energy to swing a chair after a day of wedding work.
