(or the planning process, anything related).
We specifically wanted a secular wedding. We set the date but forgot it was Ash Wednesday so our officiant showed up with a big old cross on his head. It is very prominent in the pictures.

LOL! Well that’s interesting attire! Someone requested the chicken dance. It was hilarious, and unexpected. I found out later that my husbands brother in law (sisters husband) lost a bet against the teenage cousins and had to do it/request it.
Also we lit off chinese lanterns, which we didn’t open properly, and a lot of them flopped, and almost caught on fire. OOPS

It was bloody freezing!
And my husband slowly turning round to glare at the ‘does anyone know of any lawful impediment…’ bit!

The moment I saw DH, I laughed. He was sweating like crazy, and he looked so sweet. I saw him from our suite window, and he was pacing and walking in circles for like an hour before the ceremony. He told me later he got there early because he wanted to keep all of the beach party people away from our alter site, and ask them to stay quiet during the ceremony. AWwww!!

- Wedding: March 2013 - Callanwolde Fine Arts Center
The arbor that the florist put up fell over as the MOH was walking down the aisle. Thankfully, it missed my MOH by a foot or so. All of the groomsmen and the florist staff tried to put it back up before I walked down, but it was broken beyond repair. I just laughed at the edge of the lawn while the string quaretet didn’t miss a beat. Eventually they cleared away the pieces and I walked down the aisle with my dad. When I made it up front to where my DH and the pastor were standing, I started giggling again because there were tiny pieces of floral debris scattered around.
The good news: We got a refund for the arbor from the florist. 🙂

Our pastor gave DH the wrong ring to put on my finger! He gave DH his ring to put on me. Oh my god, it was the funniest thing ever. The pastor looked so embarrassed but DH and I were dying of laughter at the altar. It calmed our nerves, so I’m actually glad it happened!
Oh, and my dad was speeding down the aisle with me and almost caused me to trip and fall. I was like, “Okay, you don’t have to be THAT desperate to get rid of me, Dad!” 😉

I fell off the chair during the hora.

We did a garter dance-off and one of the grromsmen, in his attempt to win, nearly took me out. He ran full boar toward me and leap frogged over the top of me. He kicked me in the face in the process and almost knocked me off the chair. I was laughing the whole time, but if it had happened any other day, I probably would have creid becuase it hurt so bad, lol.

Hehe! These are cute!
At our ceremony, right after a prayer, my friend’s 3 year old shouted, “Are they married yet?”
It was hilarious. I was laughing so hard. I love that kid.
Also, Dh’s best friend from childhood came home from Alberta to attend our wedding, and he is one crazy fellow. He got up and made some hilarious speeches about stuff DH and him did when they were kids. He also carried two drinks around all night, even at our ceremony. Everyone kept asking me who the “guy in the purple shirt” was. haha. He was such a hoot.

My dad gave me away, kissed my cheek, and stepped/tripped on my cathedral veil as he walked back to his seat. My head snapped back, and we all had a great laugh.

My dad’s speach. He is such a mild mannered, shy person. He got up and started telling jokes and killed it! He had the whole bridal party in tears. I was so proud of him!
We had a “score a kiss” game for guests who wanted us to kiss. They had to shoot a road hockey ball through the hole in the board from a designated distance. None of the guys on DH’s hockey team scored, but 2 girls in short dresses and heels who never played hockey before both scored on the first try!

We had a baseball themed wedding, including the National Anthem and take me out to the ballgame. The thing that made me laugh was when a friend of ours started the wave during the ceremony!

Most of the wedding party speeches generated some laughs.
A co-worker requesting Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” and then doing a whole dance to it.
I’m not really a fan of my husband’s middle name, but it can give me the giggles, which it did during our rehearsal to the point we had to pause and start over because I could not get it together.

The neighbor’s cat decided to come say hello! She jumped down into the field and was just about to come rub up on DH before everyone started giggling. That’s when she realized that there was a huge crowd of people, and dashed off looking horrified. It coincided with a line in the officiant’s poem about keeping humor in your marriage. 🙂
I was saying, the whole summer, that I knew it would happen! She’d hear some commotion going on, and decide to come say hello to us.
