My in-laws went to a wedding out of town, for his cousin. It was an outside ceremony, but they were not told anything else. They were dressed properly for a wedding, but when they showed up everyone was sitting at picnic tables drinking from a keg of beer. They were so overdressed that they left right after the wedding and went to Wal-Mart for a wardrobe change. They were still dressed a little fancier than everyone else, but had fun at this VERY relaxed wedding.

At a friends wedding, the Best Man made quite a speech. He had been best friends with the groom for years, but being from a rural area, they lived in different towns and the two towns hate each other. Both men HATE each others town. Since the Bride was not from the same town as the groom, the Best Man who was a little drunk, went on for about 15 minutes about this. He proceeded to insult 1/2 of the guest and just wouldn't stop. We are not from either town, so we were quite entertained. It's the most memorable speech I have ever heard.

My DH and I had the Marine Corps swords at our wedding (this was before I joined). Well, I knew that the marines stop the couple on the way back down the isle and smack the bride in the butt and yell "Welcome to the United States Marine Corps" so I had a pie tin under my dress. My mom did NOT want this to happen and talked to the marines who promised her that they would not do it since she asked. My mom finally convinced me - sort of - to take the pie tin out from under my dress and just go get married. Guess what happened? we got stopped coming down the isle and I got hit on the butt so hard I thought the swords engraving that said United States Marine Corps would be engraved in my behind forever. My recruter is the one who hit me too.

My Dad was drunk when walking me down the isle and my mom lost her mind that day and was freaking out about everything! When it came time for us to leave the reception she banned us from going because the preacher didn't sign the marriage certificate yet so therefore we were not technicaly married yet. She called the preacher and woke him up at 11:20 and night and he said "Juanita, you've lost your mind. They are married. I'll sign the marriage license tomorrow at church."

And the best one was that my DH's cousin was secretly married in April but had the ceremony in October. His mom hated the bride and still to this day thinks they were married in October. The priest was actually one of his friends from somewhere and gave the worst cermon you'd ever here. He was holding a book and acting like he was reading out of it. The book was not the Bible but actually a book about sports!

I guess the funniest thing that happened at my wedding was my soon to be SIL.She got drunk and was dancing like a stripper on the dancefloor and everyone was laughing.Now she is a tall,very pretty girl and she had on a tight strappless gown on so you could imagine what it looked like.My MIL was appauled and stormed off!! Needless to say my BIL did marry her the following year and she still to this day doesn't admit she was drunk!!

Everyone worked with mysister on rearranging the wdding due to the situation. But since they trashed the tuxes. The new groomsmen had to pay full price icon_mad.gif How insensitive can a person be to do that icon_cry.gif And to have them thrown on my MOMS steps. It was her Father icon_cry.gif

Wow that might be grounds for calling the wedding off altogether! I can't imagine!!!

I had two more to share:

When I was four I was a flower girl in my mom's friends wedding. I did not understand the purpose of the rehersal so a lot during the wedding I kept asking "is this the real wedding"? Then, when we went to the reception, the groom popped open a bottle of champagne - well i was sitting on my daddy's shoulders so I could see over the crowd and guess where the champagne cork went? Right into my eye! Well I guess not into - but it hit me in the eye..... needless to say I was not a happy wedding guest the rest of the time.... it hurt!!

Also remembered one from my wedding.... I guess my husband's friend really didn't try on his tux... he's a rather large man and when it came time to do the toasts.... we were all looking for him. He happened to be at the bar..... then he makes this long walk over to do the toast... and this is all caught on tape... what's so bad about that?? Well during the long walk you can really see that his pants are about 2 inches too short! They look so funny! Gave us all a big laugh - first that he was at the bar when it was time to toast and second that his pants were so short!

Does anyone out there have a strange tradition they do at a wedding. My husband, his brothers and their old neighbors do. At every wedding they play "Wipe Out" and dance until the chorus when they drop to the floor, lift their legs in the air and kick them in the air until the chorus is over. I guess it's the drum beat. The first time I saw this no one had warned me. They are getting older and less physically fit, so that last time they did it the legs didn't quite go up! I really hope they invented this when they were 10 years old, but I'm afraid that this was an adult idea.

My husband and I had been living together for about 4 years and dating for about 9-10 years (met in my sophmore year of high school) before we finally got married. During the ceremony when the priest asked the standard "speak now or hold your peace" question *EVERYONE* said loudly "IT'S ABOUT TIME!"

It caught the priest so off guard that he turned to us asking if this was expected and okay. We laughed so hard.

One 'oopsie' moment... my snooty cousin's wedding, I am sitting in the 3rd or 4th pew and her *professional* singer starts singing this song... she is horrible, but that's beside the point. All of a sudden my cell phone starts vibrating, and immediately the speaker system starts going nuts. It's cutting out and making static. To this day I don't know if it's related, but I think it was. It screwed up the majority of the song, but it was almost a blessing... she was terrible!!

One PO'ed moment... same cousin, same wedding, we all get to the hall for the reception, hundreds of guests milling around waiting for food, etc. After almost two hours, all the guests are getting pissed off, some leaving, we find out that the wedding party rented a van and went bar hopping. So, bride's parents instruct the caterers to go ahead and start serving food to the angry mob. Bride gets there and is pissed that they had started putting food out on the buffet. It's been like three hours, it's past dinner time, and the invitation said dinner and reception immediately following. It didn't say 'wedding at 4 and reception at 7'! That would've been different. There were a few diabetics in the crowd that had to go into the kitchen and beg for scraps to keep from getting sick!!

What the crap? icon_eek.gif That is soooo rude! I can't believe that! I'm sorry I just can't imagine anyone could be that inconsiderate of thier guests... bar hopping?? Why don't you do that after the reception as things are winding down and you still want to party? OR heck do it the night before the wedding... but to do it DURING your reception?? Wow. Sorry Melvira.

My wedding was wonderful, just a few bumps... My DH was VERY drunk at the reception, and decided to make a speech, to me. He started off by saying my beautiful wife is in the bathroom icon_redface.gif !! But I was standing right in front of him icon_confused.gif !! Everyone laughed.
Soon after that a mystery man (probably one of my ex's) showed up univited and told my DH that I only married him because of our son!! (My Hubby had tears in his eyes after this) icon_sad.gif This person then disappeared and we still don't know who it was icon_evil.gif

My brother just got married this September. I was a bridesmade and was in a beautiful form fitting low cut thin spaghetti straped gown (thank goodness I'm smaller on top, the big chested girls were struggling to stay in place icon_lol.gif ) Well, my DH and kids missed the wedding because he didn't listen to the location and went to the wrong place! My DD was suppose to pass out bubbles and missed it. He leaves later to take the kids home and put them to bed. As SOON as my DH leaves a guy I've known since I was a kid (I use to go over to his house to play) asked me to dance. No problem, my DH wouldn't mind a dance. WELL dancing was difficult to do with a drunk person brething down my neck and trying to practicaly molest me on the dance floor! I told him "Thanks for the dance, I have to go check on some stuff now" He told me NO don't go and is holding me by the wrist so tight! I didn't ruin the wedding with yelling at him because my whole family would have beat the snot out of him at that moment and I just didn't want that happening on my brothers day. So ONE more dance it was. The whole time he's telling me he has loved me for almost 2 years. He wants to be my childrens father and he wants me to be his kids mother. That I'm perfect for him and if I just could leave my DH he would devote his whole life to me and family. I'm horrified. Not only is he drunk and holding my to where I can't leave freely, he's crossed the line! Did I mention he's been out of prison for a little over 2 years! Goes on to tell me I'm the most beautiful person there and I've always treated him like a real person when he got out of jail. Let me treat you the way you need to be treated and just come home with me tonight. icon_eek.gif I finally thought enough is enough! I said I'm sorry I have to go to the bathroom I can't hold it anymore, and I jerked back as hard as I could to break his grasp on my wrists and jetted to the bathroom (even though I didn't have to go) No one knew what happened! Later that night he even hit on my SIL who was the BRIDE!
Only my mom is aware of what happened and she promised not to say anything. My family would kill him if they knew. I was so worried that they caught this on the wedding video and that my DH would see it. He still doesn't know what happened either and in order to keep my DH out of jail I will not tell him.
