One of the posts on here made me think to ask this... what is your wildest wedding experience.

I have a few; here are 3.

1. caught father of groom and mother of bride making out in alcove of church, and not with their spouses. icon_redface.gif I knew the family icon_redface.gif

2. Mother of bride and bride's maid got into a fist fight.

3. Bride and groom disappeared for 3 hours, immediately after the ceremony. To go get something to eat!! When they were offering a buffett. (which sparked the fight listed above). no receiving line, no cake cutting.. icon_surprised.gif A LOT OF MAD GUESTS

I cant wait to hear some of your experiences !

groom (greek family) quickly decides to marry bride (asian family) because she is in the country illegally and is about to be kicked out of the county

quick registry wedding but first groom tells his family that its "only small" and no one invited but immediate family... so, groom arrives at registry with his 65+yr old greek parents, 1 brother & his wife and 1 single brother

bride shows up with 35 friends and family including her immigration lawyer

after quick registry wedding we are all told to attend a pakistanian or something similar restaurant in newtown... a restaurant that does not have any chairs or cutlery... yes, we all have to sit on the floor and eat with our hands... including his 65yr parents.. meanwhile mother complaining about why she wasnt allowed to invite his aunts and uncles while bride who had only been in the country for 4 months and only has 1 brother has so many people attending

did i mention groom was my husbands brother ???? i can say 10yrs later they are still married but geez.

his baby's christening was worst, we were all invited back to a restaurant and we get there to find out it was a all you can eat buffet but everyone firstly has to pay for their own meal AND he and his wife went home to have lunch with the baby and came back after hubby and I had to take care of everything including the $1000 bill because we were mortified by his brothers behavior!

Groom had 'Too late' written underneath his shoes so when the couple knelt for the blessing, it was visible to all in the congregation. Photos from the photographer came back with shots of the groomsmen urinating in the park during the formal shots. Groom interrupted the speeches to have waitresses bring jugs of beer to the head table. Groom sent a telegram to himself to be read out by the best man reading, '[Bride], I love every bone in your body, especially mine.'

That man was all class.

Whilst delivering cakes to the reception/venue (where wedding was going to be held) three bridesmaids were fighting - actually slapping and pulling each others hair.
Then one of them screamed out you @@@@ing Sl*t
Apparently bridesmaid #3 was caught in the same room as the groom to be 2 days before the wedding ..... to put it politely....... she was on her knees.

poor thing - she must have lost an earing - *cough* icon_wink.gificon_rolleyes.gif

Mother of bride walked in - and asked What the H*** is going on.

Bridesmaid #1 with the wrecked hair style told her

Mother of Bride yelled out - THERE WILL BE NOOOOOOO WEDDING TODAY .......................OR ANY OTHER DAY.

I just kept placing all the cuppies where they were meant to be - thinking to myself

Shezzzzzz, glad i got paid in full two week ago.

As i was walking out the door the Bride arrived -
I smiled - gave her a peck on the cheek and said
You look beautiful - I wish you every happiness - today and always.

Got in my car and realised what i had said. icon_sad.gificon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_sad.gif

She sent me a beautiful thankyou note saying that she didn't get married - but instead everyone enjoyed a *kick the bastard to the curb party*

Saw her 4 months later and she was with a new beau -
Now i don't feel so bad about wishing her every happiness on the day.
She did look blissfully happy.

Love it when stories have a happy ending - icon_wink.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

I delivered a wedding cake to a restaurant/club - they let me in through the kitchen and it was the dirtiest place I've ever seen, paper all over the floor with grease and food, nasty towels, mold etc. And tehy show me a even dirtier table to assemble teh cake at.... And finally they open the fridge where the cake was supposed to be stored and it was green with mold on the inside and full of greas and stains.....I just wanted to cry....But the cake was paid and I couldn't leave them without a wedding cake....
I texted the bride letting her know ...and she already knew the sanitary status and said it was fine ....

My wildest wedding story is from long before I even thought of caking...Keep in mind this was an 11:00 am wedding...the groom was SO DRUNK at the ceremony that he ran out the side door of the church 3 times to be sick and then spent the whole reception passed out in the back seat of a car while his bride bravely tried to keep her chin up and convince everyone he had the flu.

I was at a wedding where everyone who wanted to dance with the bride and groom had to have a double shot first.

At my brothers wedding my DH was in a bad mood that day because he didn't listen to directions (Imagine that icon_wink.gif ) and went to the wrong location so he/BIL/MIL and our kids missed the wedding. I was part of the wedding party so I was there earlier that day. Anyways, DH was still mad about being stupid and driving to the wrong metro-park so he left with the kids about not even 2 hours into the reception. About a half hour after they left a lady I know asked if I would dance with her grandson. I kind of grew up with him and he knows DH and my kids. I danced with him and he was drunk. He proceeds to tell me how much he loves me and how I should be with him. That I'm the perfect wife and mother and that he wants to raise our kids together (his daughter is good friends with my daughter). I told him, your just drunk and you don't feel this way. He is still professing his unconditional love for me as I try leaving the dance floor to go to the bathroom (my attempt at escape) He's holding my wrists tightly and telling me he just wants to feel my body against his. That's when I managed to get away and just stomped off. Shortly after that my brother comes up and says watch out he's drunk and looking for someone to go home with, he just hit on the bride. So much for that unconditional love. icon_lol.gif I've never told DH. He'd be furious and still try to go after him even though it happened years ago.

There was a wedding where the brides brother got drunk and got into a fight with someone. The bride tried breaking up the fight and ended up getting her dress just covered in blood from the 2 idiots.

I thought the above what I wrote was pretty bad but geesh some of you all have some crazy ones!

Whew...you guys have posted some doozies!

The wildest thing I've ever seen at a wedding was a bouquet of flowers (identical to the bridesmaids' bouquets) fastened to the door of a pig sty. Outdoor wedding/reception in an open field and the couple didn't want to have an unsightly pig sty in sight, so they thought they'd dress it up. We had pork BBQ for the wedding dinner. icon_wink.gif

My sister had her wedding at a pretty water garden that was created in an old cement quarry. Unfortunately it was drained for repairs and so it just looked like a scene from some disaster movie. (It was drained when she made the reservation but she thought they would fill it for her wedding and replace the plants and all that).

She had her reception at her favorite nightclub, in the daytime with the lights on, and she had never seen it that way before. It was pretty gross and the DJ had no idea what to play for a reception so he played Frank Sinatra the whole three hours. Sis and her husband were sitting up on a stage which would have been okay, but my BIL wore a kilt and men just don't know how to sit modestly in a skirt.

She had her wedding cake from Walmart and I was irritated so I didn't help with assembly or suggest replacing the included pillars and thin styrofoam plates with something that would support the cake, and it fell during the reception.

But hey, everybody was sober and no one was cheating, so it obviously wasn't that bad icon_biggrin.gif

I thought I had a wild story where the bride went into labor during the wedding, but that doesn't even compare to these. icon_surprised.gif

LOL - Forgot my own first wedding day - lollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

It was back in the early seventies when every young bride was expected to wear white - thus i did.

I arrive at church with father and bridesmaids in tow -
Walking down the aisle -
What do i spy -
my MIL to be dressed all in white - a long dress at that - icon_confused.gif

Fast forward to reception.

My beautifully well spoken grandmother was speaking to my MIL and during the conversation my MIL says -
I guess you are wondering why i decided to wear a long white dress?

My grandmother having impecable manners said - Yes, now you mention it you are in a long white dress - icon_rolleyes.gif

To which my MIL said - well if *she* can get away with pretending to be a virgin - then so can i.

My beautifully well mannered grandmother replied - Yes dear, but one has to admit, white does suit the brides complextion - don't you think?Turned on her left heel and walked away.
BWAWAAAAAA. thumbs_up.gif

The MIL thought it horrendous that *her son* and i lived together before we were married - icon_rolleyes.gif

My Mother thought she was horrendous - lolllll

When I was a planner, the resort I worked at lost all of the water and AC in the middle of summer in Texas. We had a high profile wedding and had to move locations to another venue on the property because the original building started to smell like musty body odor, and it was awful.

I was already had one foot out the door and was literally one minute away from calling the health department because the kitchen was still in full operations mode. Of course I didn't do anything of the sort..and the bride had no idea as myself and my team were pros...and wanted her day to be perfect. We just made up some excuse as to why we had to move locations....but it still turned out very nice.

My own (first) wedding ... I should have taken it as an omen.

Biggest downpour of rain I'd ever seen. The church basement, where we had spent HOURS setting up tables and chairs was flooded to my knees. Not exaggerating and I have the picture of me with big hot rollers in my hair, jeans rolled up to my knees, standing in water, dragging chairs upstairs to a smaller side room.

My favorite story on weddings I've done the cake was the couple who had Pizza Hut cater the reception. No kidding ..... 30 pizzas, a bunch of salads and breadsticks delivered some time into the reception and literally dumped on a big 8' table.

But the big story was the cake cutting/feeding. Groom shoved the cake in her face so hard that it almost choked her, she started crying and flounced across the room heading toward the restroom, digging cake out from between her boobs, with her 2 bridesmaids right behind her. Reminded me of the cartoon Cinderella's stepmother being followed by the 2 stepsisters! icon_lol.gif Bartender commented to me, "well, THAT honeymoon's over before it gets started!"

I cant believe that i didnt put my own wedding down either!! icon_evil.gif one week before wedding, i get a call from my sister telling me that mom and dad have just left for AZ. They fricken moved !!!!! Totally missed my wedding!! icon_mad.gif

Had to get new tires for car to go on honeymoon- family beach house in NC. 700 miles away. The tires didnt show up unitl my wedding day!! two hours before wedding, and hubby is getting tires on the car. The tire truck had a flat!! and didnt have a tire to fix it !! icon_lol.gif

Air conditioning was out in church/reception hall (married in late august!!)

Closed my dress in the car door..huge black streak down the side..thank god for didi7 !! it got it out.

my cake was a piece of CRAP!! IT is the reason that i got into making cakes. NO bride shoud ever be that disappointed in her wedding cake! nothing of what i ordered. ordered lots of icing flowers got 4 silk ones instead! she made the icing using LARD. GAAAAGGGGG... no one could eat the cake.

The only good thing was getting my hubby icon_biggrin.gif

First family wedding I went to with Dh who was my boyfriend at the time. His cousin was getting married and the hall had two sides so that it could be rented out to 2 parties at the same time.

Turns out the party next to us was being held by a gang. Halfway thru the rival gang showed up. Gang fight outside and inside the hall. Both sides.

Dh's brother actually got stabbed in the gut. The entire bridal party, Dh's brother and several other guests ended up in the ER with injuries.

At my 20th class reunion, a couple showed up who had been the "it couple" in high school. During college they met and married other people, and had both since divorced. The rest of us found out they had been dating for a while, and were planning to get married. Someone said, "HE##, let's just do it here! This was about 9 pm.
Two of the guys went to the local county fair to get the county clerk (I think that's right) out of his box seat at the horse show to open the court house and get a marriage license. One of the gals started taking apart the table decorations, and made a bouquet. We called her sister who came dragging her two kids. Somebody found a preacher, and we had a makeshift altar, using the (artifical) flowered arch at the door. Somebody grabbed a video camera to film the whole thing. I just about got punched when one of the really drunk guys started mouthing during the ceremony, and I whispered to him to shut up. Two other guys jumped in front of him and escorted him out.
About two weeks later they had a ceremony on a river boat where her brother, the captain, married them again in front of family.

Would you believe me if I said this marriage didn't last too long?
