Did anyone get some wonderful comic relief during their reception or ceremony?
When DH went to get the garter from under my dress my dad shouted “what are you doing?!” My DH jumped so far back that he had to stand up just to get back over to me!
My grandma and grandpa also added into the fun and decided to lead the eletric slide! It was charming and hilarious to watch them tell everyone “how it is done”
So what are your funny stories 🙂

@Payless: oooh noez, I don’t have anything from my wedding (since it hasn’t happend) BUT I do have something from my MOH’s bridal shower.
There was this lady who thought it was a BABY SHOWER and my MOH and I had to sit for like 10 minutes hearing her talk about how babies are a great blessing and all, before my friend could tell her it was a BRIDAL shower LOL.
I almost peed myself trying not to laugh.

My Aunt and my Mom got WASTED on Sambucca and started trying to “set up” our friends.
The absolute best part was discovering that my Mom likes hitting on black guys when she’s drunk (she’s Canadian. And still married to my Dad). She literally grabbed on to a young, obviously gay black man and yelled “NO! I’M GOING HOME WITH HIM TONIGHT!”
I have never seen a human look so scared. That poor guy!

@BrandNewBride: bwhahaha! he must of been mortified by the attention and maybe those set up friends will thank them later on!
My mom and her boyfriend got drunk and broke into a chorus of here comes the bride during the end of the night and finished by shouting “wheres the bride?! bring on the bride!”
*I was upstairs during their performance but boy do I wish I had been their to enjoy it! LOL

Our adorable dog walked down the aisle with my neice (we had an outdoor wedding). And, well, she took a #2 during our ceremony. We didnt know it at the time but had a good laugh when we were told about it later. Still, wouldnt change it for the world. We love that little stinker!

@IUrebekah3RT: He must have been embarrased about forgetting to bring a present, how gracious of him to make sure you recieved something 😉

My husband is German, our ceremony was in English. He was so nervous about having to say “lawfully wedded wife” (very unnatural to pronounce for Germans!) that he was only focused on hearing those words and lost track of what the officiant was saying.
The officiant eventually asked him to repeat the words “I thee wed”, and the most hilarious look of panic crossed my husband’s face. He blanked, put up a total mental block, and it took both me and the officiant, leaning in while laughing, repeating the phrase about 6 times before my poor husband goes “can we just skip this part?” The whole audience bust out laughing, and I was already in tears trying to control my laughter. I felt awful for the poor guy, but he was able to make fun of himself when he gave a toast during the reception. Hubs was mortified, but it was a very sweet, charming moment;)

We closed the night with letting off chinese lanterns that I bought online. Except most of us didn’t open them properly, we only opened them half way, and half of them caught on fire. While we were on our honeymoon a huge fire started nearby (and I mean a huge, home destroying fire so it was definitely not a laughing matter) but still our guests made plenty of jokes that we started it with the lanterns.

@IUrebekah3RT: That is so funny! I want to include our dogs in our wedding somehow too.

During our very emotional Wedding Ceremony (both of us were choked up and had tears more than once)… when it came to the ring part… Mr TTR was goofing around as he was “looking for” my WBands in his pocket. That “oh my gosh I don’t think I have them … WHERE could they be look”
I know him well enough to know he was just pulling my leg.
So I cracked up totally.
That.is.my.guy… he makes me laugh every day… which is one of the BIG reasons that I love him so.
Looking back now, this little “bit of business” made our Wedding Ceremony very much US.

I don’t know if this is the funniest thing per se, but it was comic relief when I needed it…
During our “getting ready” photos we did a photo of my mom zipping up my dress. We were both so emotional and both starting to cry as she is zipping me up, when she is like “What the hell is this?!” and it was a huge hair growing out of my back – at least 6 inches long! We all had a good laugh about that, and it cut some of the heavy emotions which was really nice.

My officiant is my DH’s FBIL who is VERY silly. We thought/feared he would make a joke of our wedding but he was very good. Apparently he asked DH a couple of minutes before I walked down the isle if he could say “I NEED THE RINGS” like Thor’s “I NEED A HORSE”. Then him AND DH’s Best Man asked if I was really sure I wanted to do this and assured me I still had time to run while saying my “I Do”. To some people that would have been inappropriate but everyone knows how we are and it is totally our personalities.
During the reception we had a Photobooth. My cousin got VERY drunk and fell in love with an Australian outback hat that he decided he was going to keep. This was my father’s boss’ hat so that wasn’t happening. He kept it on for hours and kept greeting people like a cowboy (???). Also he went into the Photobooth with my mom (his aunt) and proceeded to take off his shirt to show off how much weight he lost. Lmao.
that same cousin and my other cousoin’s BF (from my dad’s side) who have seen each other maybe 4 times in 8 years became best friends. They then photo bombed some of DH’s Aunt’s friends in the Photobooth (egged on by DH’s aunts). It was funny and I was so happy that both sides were really getting along!

My husband’s AUNT slid across the entire dance floor in her dress with her legs WIDE OPEN for the bouquet. When I looked back she was behind me, on the ground, legs open, glasses off, and everyone was laughing so hard they were in tears. WHen I looked up, the videographer had caught the entire thing!
