I was just thinking about a wedding I went to in March. It was pretty “normal” in my social circle (ceremony / dinner / open bar /dancing etc). The DJ wasn’t the best ever… he was a bit out of touch but people kept feeding him suggestions and the night progressed nicely until the last song.
The DJ tried to end the wedding with Adele’s “Someone like you”…. AKA the most recent/popular break-up song. Someone told him (or he figured it out as we all dramatically fake cried on the dance floor a la the SNL skit) and he played one more song to end the night on a less somber note, but I will always remember this wedding as the one that ended with a break-up song.
It cracks me up thinking about it… anyone else have similar stories?!

I guess I’ll try bumping this once! I am in the mood for light hearted wedding stories the front page seems very “heavy” today!

Alright, I’ll play! Through all my DIYing leading up to the wedding, I ended up with an extra silk peony flower. A huge emm-effer — probably 3-4 inches across. And I also had extra elastic left from making a corsage. So the night before we were to get on the plane to Seattle for the wedding, I got drunk and made this:
As you can see, the bridesmaids were thrilled when I showed them the MASSIVE PEONY ON AN ELASTIC CHIN STRAP. But let me tell you, in the last hour of the reception, everyone wore the damn thing for at least a little while. Even the photographer wore it. My sister put it around her pregnant belly, so the fetus wore it! In the end, I was so glad I brought it to the wedding because it was the most hilarious prop ever. Seems like half the guests only care about seeing the picture of them “wearing that stupid flower thing.” And to be honest … I want to see the pictures of ME wearing it too!

The weirdest/dumbest thing I’ve seen at a wedding was probably the groom and the bride dancing to bruno mar’s “Just the way you are” (which is an EXTREMELY sweet song) but it was really fast-paced and the groom was moving really fast and like… pseudo-club dancing WHILE slow dancing. The bride looked so mortified. 🙂 My FI and I joke that we’re going to do that.

hehe – these are funny!
Although this isn’t funny-weird, more like awkward-weird, I’ll play:
At my cousin’s wedding last year, the DJ was hitting on her in a VERY obvious way. Like after the first dance was over, he announced something like “Man, I’m jealous of (husband’s name) – he gets to dance with her for the rest of her life”. There were all these comments through the night “man, BridesName can certainly shake it!” while she was dancing…During the garter toss he kept asking if the groom wanted help getting the garter out. It was so awkward and strange….turns out the DJ was a friend of her’s from high school – I guess he still had a bit of a crush on her.

@StL.Ashley: umm I would feel SO AWKWARD if that happened to me (especially if it was enough for other people to notice). Yikes.

A wedding we attended last summer required each table to RUN after the DJ to answer a question about the bride & groom to be dismissed for the buffet. This was a reception of ~300 guests, and made the reception seem like more of a sporting event than a formal affair. Annoying and tacky.
