Best: fondue fountain and yummy dessert liquor shots served in chocolate shot glasses

Worst: guy who caught the garter put garter on girl who caught bouquet with his teeth. The garter got stuck in his braces. Yes, that girl was me.

@ThisDeluxeLife:  The *worst* thing I’ve seen, luckily I never had to actually *SEE* it.

The bride is a big chick. Morbidly obese. Whateves, no problem. Her bridesmaids are all morbidly obese as well. And they walked down the aisle to THE THEME FROM JURASSIC PARK.

I heard there were quite a few laughs and shakes-of-the-head came from the audience. Yeah… it sounded so tacky, and ridiculous. Why would any woman with weight problems want to be compared to giant dinosaurs on their wedding day??

Best: Samba dancers with live drummers (really…any sort of live awesome entertainment)

Worst: A bride that seemed so uninterested/over it…she even cringed away from the groom when he moved to kiss her after the officiant’s pronouncement. Awkward turtles…

@ThisDeluxeLife:  Best: one of my best friends marrying the love of her life, who I approve of (big big thing), and both of whom I love dearly. He’s the greatest for her, and that makes it the best thing I have ever seen.

Worst: LOL. My good friend married a woman we all hated. No, seriously, no exaggeration. She was a Cee You Next Tuesday- everyone, and I mean everyone (including HIS parents) begged him to call it off fot the umpteenth and final time…to no avail. Anyway, the night before the wedding everyone got wasted… including the bride and groom. They were both SO hungover the next morning at their ceremony they murmured their vows, both were pale and clammy and green looking. Actually that whole mess was the worst thing I’ve ever seen. They called off the wedding like three times that week …

The FOB wore a black and red tracksuit (no, there was no legit reason.. everyone else was in a tux), the groomsmen snuck a case of beer into the back of the church under my friends sweatshirt to ‘pound one last beer with the groom as a single man,’ … then they had a boy in braces hitting puberty sing the ceremony song (OK maybe that one was more endearing, but I felt for the kid.)

She wore an all white poofy prom-queen ballgown to her second wedding (and her daughter was a jr bridesmaid)… and made him wear a white tux (he also has a child from a previous relationship, and was almost 30 at the time… and also totally uncomfortable with wearing white.)

And THEN the best man and maid of honor ended up a weekend thing- which ended with the best man taking care of the MOH when she drank herself into alcohol poisoning that night.  Did I mention the bride was a stress eater? It took three people to lace up her dress that day. Yea. Lol. Judge me all you want, but, that whole thing was one huge epic fail.  My date for the evening looked hot, though. So there was a plus.

I understand that some of this may come across as ‘opinionated’ to some people. But like I said, he was a close friend of mine… it’s all justified when you grew up knowing someone and watched them walk head-on into disaster.

@ThisDeluxeLife:  no reason given. I think they just wanted a wedding but didn’t want to foot the bill. Needless to say we gave no gift or cash, considering the meal cost us over $150 with drinks. There is no reason in this world to make your guests pay for their meals at your wedding.

@BackcountryBarbie:  Is it bad that I thought each paragraph was a new wedding? o_O That entire wedding fully embraces the “trainwreck” situation. Oy.

Best: Fireworks! (Literally)

Worst: No seating plan and not enough chairs for everyone. I think they wanted a moving, cocktail like reception but they just ended up with people pulling in chairs from random places and leaving.
