WOW.  my jaw just dropped reading that!!!  And I was always wondering why people mentioned/asked if their dresses were ‘appropriate’ for a church wedding.

Oh my gosh. I would die of embarassment and quite possibly burst into tears, lol.

I think the worst thing I have witnessed in person has been the world’s most awkward bouquet/garter thing where a much older lady caught the bouquet…and her teenage nephew got the garter. :/ The DJ insisted that he put it on her. I think we all died a little for them. :/ Part of the reason we aren’t doing bouquet toss/garter toss!

At a second cousins wedding, the daughter of the groom started crying…very loud when the couple said the “i do’s”. She didnt want her dad marrying someone who wasnt her mom….it was really kinda sad! And I felt sorry for the bride too!

I went to a wedding a few months back and the groom’s parents missed the ceremony. They said they were stuck in traffic. The groom was so embarrassed and rightfully so. This is such a huge day, and for your parents to be so non-chalant about missing it was a true shame. Everyone felt terrible for the groom.

Similar story to a PP – at a wedding I attended, a teenage/young 20s man caught the garter and a little girl caught the bouquet – she was like 6 or 7.  They still made him so it.

Another wedding was a little boy and an older lady – he just put it on her wrist. lol

I recently attended a wedding where the Flower Girl was not allowed to be in the wedding.  The priest told the Bride 5 minutes before the ceremony started.  And both parents of the child were in the wedding.  I babysat.  lol

Wow, some of these are sad….happily I can say that I have yet to see something “shameful.” However, in the Northeast this past year we had a horrible snowstorm the last week of October, and it almost never snows that time of year. Anyways, we had friends who were getting married in NY…long story short, power was out, most of the guests didn’t make it, neither did the DJ, and they bride and groom missed their own church ceremony and needed to get married on the dancefloor at 10pm. The only music they had was an 80’s hits CD that a guest had in their car.

They took it pretty well but a couple of weeks later we were at a wedding and I think all the things she missed out on really began to hit her…like not being able to walk down an isle, etc. I just felt awful.

I’m sorry but HOW do these things happen??

If you KNOW you are getting married in a church where a priest is known for being particular about modesty, you plan for these things, and wear a gorgeous, lace bolero to cover your shoulders.

You plan for extra time to allow for traffic.

You only allow for the garter/bouquet toss to be 18+.

These are just common sense things to me and could clearly have been avoided. Sheesh.

Guests showing up in flannel shirts, jeans, and boots.

Waiting THREE hours for the bride and groom to show up to their reception. These were two different weddings.

A groom missing pretty much all of the reception – puking and then passed out in the bridal room. The bride was a great sport about it though.
