The number one question in the “Ask Reddit” section of Reddit.com last night: What is the worst thing you've ever seen happen at a wedding?
- After arriving 45 minutes after the ceremony was to begin, during the ring exchange, the groom gets this blank look and says he didn't know he was supposed to buy her another ring. The Sister-In-Law slipped off her wedding band and handed it off to the preacher.
- Just as the bride started walking down the aisle, her grandmother had a sudden cardiac event. We had to stop the procession and start CPR in the aisle way.
- I was just at a wedding where the father of the groom gave a 10-minute speech about socialism.
- Was at a wedding this summer. The groom's family absolutely tore their son/brother apart during the speeches.
- My cousin was the groom and had about 500 people in attendance. He got on the mic and said there's no bride, so we had the party anyway. He married someone else two years later.
- Bridal face plant followed by a girdle breaking, which led to the dress ripping.
- Brother and sister-in-law thought it would be fun to have their dogs walked down the aisle after their flower girl spread the flower petals. The dogs thought mid-way down the aisle was the perfect place to go to the bathroom on the white runner.
- For the bouquet toss, a middle-aged guy forced his middle-aged girlfriend out onto the floor, then stood by her so she couldn't leave. The bouquet was caught by an excited little girl. The guy proceeded to yank the bouquet out of the little girl's hands, gave it to his middle-aged girlfriend, then ran off the floor cheering loudly to high-five one of his buddies. The little girl ran away crying.
- There was like an 8-year-old boy who had loads of confetti in his hand so I didn't think much of it, turns out he thought it was sugar paper and ate all of it, he then proceeded to projectile vomit everywhere through the middle of the ceremony
- At my own wedding reception, I saw my wife's grandma, who was about 98, very slowly and with a terrible sense of inevitability fall sideways off her chair. Luckily she was fine, and lived for another few years to see her 100th birthday.
