What is the most embarrassing or horrible thing you've seen happen at a wedding, your own or someone else's.

My wedding cake fell at my wedding. Just went timber.

My mother got up to give her last bit of advice and she advised my husband to "take stock in Tylenol because he was going to need it being married to me." icon_surprised.gificon_confused.gificon_mad.gificon_redface.gif She thought she was being funny, but you should have heard the gasps when she said that.

During the feeding of the cake, the groom shoved the cake into the bride's face..... I mean severely!!! She was so upset, she started to cry. She literally "stomped" off to the ladies room, with 3 bridesmaids behind her, all the while digging cake out of her bra.

Guests were saying, "Well, I guess THAT honeymoon's over before it started!"

The only thing that happened at my wedding that could be thought of as embarassing (everyone thought it was funny) was my SIL who was my Matron of Honor forgot my husband's wedding band in the dressing room so she had to run down the aisle and get it when the preacher asked for the rings! It was so funny, everyone laughed! It is one thing about my wedding I will never forget! And the fact that the Best Man had one of the ushers on his shoulders to try to catch the garter! I have pictures of that!

I was helping a friend cater a party, and help with the cake, someone had left a door open and a bird flew right into the cake. She turned the bird part to the back and made sure that none was cut from it. Talk about a freak thing!

At my friend's wedding in October (the one I did the cakes for) when they exchanged their vows, he agreed to take her as his "awful" wedded wife! The whole chapel was rolling in laughter and it was almost impossible to finish the ceremony....he'll never live that down, and luckily she thought it was hilarious!

I was at a wedding where the mother of the groom was giving her toast and said how her son better satisfy (in the bedroom) his new wife or she would do it for him! (The mother was NOT kidding) No matter what your preference is that was rude to say to 200 people!

No offense to anyone in this post, just the most embarassing thing (for the newly married couple) I have EVER heard at a wedding!

Talking about birds.... I did the flowers and cake for my sister's wedding and we had left the doors open to bring in the materials ( she got married in a Unitarian church which was very plain so we erected and decorated a pergola for them to get married under ) for a medditerranian garden. We accidently added a song bird to the mix when one flew in and we couldn't get it out before the ceremony started. It sang throughout the service!

My brother in laws wedding was the worst wedding i have ever been to. Im not sure what to call it! They have money but they just dont want to spend it! Where do i start!!
They had 200 guests and a buffet to feed 50, we had to go to the chip shop to eat. The groom chewed gum during the vows! The bride toasted with a pint of beer! She couldn't stand by the end of the night she was so drunk, then she did a speech, she swore endlessly, then in her speech she said to have mum i dont know why you came you didnt do nothing!! And they didnt have a cake!!!!

Ok....I have another one. Bride had a cake-n-punch reception. Cash bar. For 100 guests, they brought in one (ONE!) tray of cheese cubes from Walmart. Spent the money for a DJ to play for 4 hours, though! I was waiting in the back hall, reading my book, until time to cut the cake (I always stay and cut my wedding cakes) and I noticed a lot of people leaving out the back door. I thought it was just the smokers going for a smoke break. Shortly thereafter I saw them all coming back .... with bags from McDonalds, Burger King and Arby's!!! The guests were getting their own food!!!!!!!!!!!!

What got me about this wedding (and I use this as an example for my brides) ..... they paid a DJ to play for 4 hours. They expected their guests to get hot and tired and sweaty with all that dancing. But if the guests wanted something to drink, they had to buy it from the bar and they provided no food for their guests, who they expected to stay for the 4 hours. If your budget can't afford "the big party", then don't have one. But trying to "party" with only a DJ and not taking care of your guests is no-class!

Not only cheap, but very tacky!

I think this could rank as horrible. When my husband and I were married his aunt pulled him aside at the reception to tell him something. She did not want me to know about it but he told me the next day. "The gift I made for you I want you to have if you split up." I don't want her to have it. It needs to stay in the family." icon_mad.gif The gift was a hand knitted afghan. To this day I want to cut it in half and send her the picture with a note: we are getting divorced and we split it in half. icon_wink.gif

I would never do that since we don't plan to divorce--we have ten years under our belt already.

Ooh, I love these!

Here's my three:

1. It was hot and our church is an old farm community church with no AC. We left the back doors open for air and a chicken wandered in from the farm next door. All through the service - and on the videotape - you can hear cows mooing.

2. One of the guests at my wedding came to the reception high and felt me up.

3. My cousin wanted butterflies released at her wedding. My sister was a bridesmaid and she is terrified of butterflies. She told my cousin, but they insisted she participate anyway. Not only did my sister kill her butterfly in its envelope, she completely freaked out and broke down into hysterical crying. She was on her hands and knees shaking while the bride and groom walked past.

Okay, I've got one. It's not cake related, but funny (now).

When one of my sisters got married, my other two sisters, a friend and I went EARLY to decorate the reception hall. My dad and some of his friends also went. Well, after us girls did our part my dad told us to take my uncle's station wagon and go home and get ready (knowing that his wonderful daughters take forever to get ready icon_wink.gif Anyway, we're on our way home when all of a sudden smoke start coming from the car. This is pre-cell phone era, so here you have four girls who know nothing about cars, no cell phone and a particularly deserted highway since it was early Sunday morning. Luckily, these two ladies in a truck pass by and stop and help us. We asked them just to take us back to the hall because we figured my dad and his friends would still be there. Well, we get to the hall and it's all locked up and they've already left. These two ladies were SUPER nice - they took us all the way home (and we lived a pretty good distance from the hall). Oh, and did I mention it was a truck? So on the way home, you have four girls (one with curling pins in her hair - me) in the back of a truck next to a truckload of groceries. When we finally got home my sister (the bride) could have eaten us alive - she thought we had stopped at McDonald's for breakfast.

Oh, and also on her wedding, we lost the car rental keys right when we had to leave, realized we left the bouquet in the car right when it was time to throw it, and the night before her wedding my sister my rearended by this out-of-town guest!

I guess some people would not take all those things happening on a wedding day as a good sign, but that was 10 years ago and my sister and her husband are still going strong with their fifth kid in tow!

I went to a wedding reception once that the bride and groom spent a lot of money on decorations,food,drinks, a super cake (and I mean 5 or 6 tiers,fondant,etc) and whatnot.Everything was perfect except for one thing:aparently they didnt want to cut the cake,dont know why,and waited more than 3 or 4 hours when almost all of the guests where gone to do it.There where about 200 people.Sadly,at the time they cut the cake the first three tiers fell miserably all over the table.Guess is Karma,for wanting all that cake only for the them and the family.
Oh!Cake...my sweet,sweet escape...
