So my sister had asked our cousin, who at the time was college aged, to do a reading at her wedding. Well, he marched up in front of everyone in the church and he read from The Book of Guinness. I guess he was just super excited for the open bar…lol!
What’s the funniest wedding blooper/moment you’ve seen or experienced?

The family wedding Fiance went to last month had an amazing moment during the ceremony.
It was on the groom’s family farm in one of the pastures. Beautiful day, sunny. I’m watching the ceremony, tearing up. The reader is reading “I like you,” and I look over at the bridesmaids and see all 8 of them giggling, one by one looking to their right at the back of the pasture. One elbows the Bridesmaid or Best Man next to her and points.
I can’t take it and take a look back. I see that the wedding has been crashed. About 30 feet behind the aisle, there is a toddler chasing/trying to wrangle a herd of PYGMY GOATS that decided they wanted to join in. Then the cows that you can’t see in the barn off in the distance start mooing.
I lose it! Pretty soon, the bride is cracking up to the point of needing to lean on the groom for support, the officiant is struggling to get through the final lines of a very short ceremony. Eventually the goats were wrangled.
They did not show up on the photog’s blog. I was disappointed!! If any animals crash our ceremony, it will probably be bears or deer…..

At my wedding our guitarist decided to get wasted. By the middle of our reception my coordinator asked him to leave. We had already paid him which sucked, and he was drinking on our open bar at the wedding! (we didnt notice until it was too late). He got super intense with his playing and was really sweaty and acting weird, everyone thought it was pretty funny. I was a little mad at the time but think it is a good story now.

I wish I had had something this funny happen at mine/another wedding I’ve been to! The closest thing was that my cousin’s son kept trying to steal strawberries off of the groom’s cake during dinner and during announcements, etc. That was hilarious.
I can’t wait to hear other stories!

I’m not married yet, but at my brother’s wedding my Dad’s phone went off during the ceremony, not once but twice! Playing the Flintstones theme song. Ha
Nothing too funny but that was pretty much it. lol

At my middle sisters wedding my nephew (who was about 7 or 8 at the time) was stealing fingers full of icing all night.. the photographer caught him and took pictures.. so when it was time to cut the cake there were clumps of icing missing..all I could do was laugh as his face was full of icing…

Went to a wedding in April. Everyone was really good about turning off their cell phones.
In the middle of the ceremony everyone hears a loud BeepBeepBeep BeepBeepBeep.
we’re all looking around. The elderly man a few rows back from us had apparently set his watch to go off promptly at 3 pm. But he’s hard of hearing and has no idea it’s beeping. People in his pew start pointing towards his watch. So he thinks they want to know what time it is and VERY LOUDLY announces that its 3 o’clock.
Eventually someone reached over and turned the watch off. poor guy.

Our reception was at a hotel, so the washrooms were public. I had finally gone to the washroom, after holding it all day (my dress was huge, and I knew it was going to be a pain). One of my bridesmaids and a friend were helping me sort out the layers, so they were holding the back of my dress up. We were doing this in the main part of the washroom, since we all couldn’t fit into the stall. A little girl (she was 10, tops!) opened the door to the washroom, took a look at us, and started to retreat. I blurted out, “Oh, no! It’s ok, I’m just exposing myself to fix my dress!”. My Bridesmaid or Best Man and friend burst out laughing, and spent the rest of the evening telling people how I expose myself to little children. To top it all off, I’m a teacher. Awesome.

@Roe: I love this, ours is on a farm as well and I can only hope that something like this happens! We are excited to see what goes wrong…unfortunately since we are placing bets and anxiously waiting these type of things, nothing will probably happen!
These are the moments you look back at and can laugh with, that’s what I love!

At my 1st wedding my ring bearers literally ran down the aisle! They were both 3 at the time. One boy (my exs nephew) didn’t even make it to the front, he jumped on his grandmas lap. The other (My nephew) made it to the front, threw his pillow at my ex, sat down on the stage, and started pouting.
My nephew hated my ex and made it very well known. Looking back I should have paid attention to the 3 yr old & ran. L would always kick my ex (B) anytime he saw him & inform him that I was his and not B’s.

I went to a wedding rehearsal where the flower girl (age 2) literally stomped down the aisle with the sourest look I have ever seen a face make. Luckily she was all smiles for the real thing!

I had three flower girls with VERY different personalities. They each had a basket of petals. Flower girl one carefully threw each peta,l one at a time, and was very careful to make sure they landed directly in the center of the aisle. Flower girl two, threw her petals out by the handful, and when she was out of petals, half way down the aisle she swung her basket around her wrist and proceded to skip the rest of the way down the aisle. Flower girl three carried her basket of petals all the way to the end of the aisle and dumped them all out, next to the alter, then threw her basket to the side and walked off to her mom. Witnessing this from the end of the aisle, waiting to make my entrance, I just had to laugh. It was funny and very precious and absolutely true to each one of these little girls personalities.

See that there fountain?
One of my favorite friends ended up in it. I’m not sure how, why, or what it looked like, but I heard lots of recaps and she posted on FB “When you fall in the fountain, it’s time to go home.”
Also, one bridesmaid in particular was enjoying the open bar and I had a couple people come up to me to let me know that my bridesmaids “have started licking each other”. Apparently it was a full-on tongue fest. She was licking another’s arm. lolwut?

My aunt had a very formal wedding. I was the flower girl at about three years old. The only thing I actually remember about it myself was asking where my flowers were only for the adults to realize that they had forgotten my rose petals and the beginning of the processional. My cousin was the ring bearer and we had been told to walk slowly and to smile. As soon as the doors of the church were opened for us, he took off running. So, I took off running after him yelling “Josh! We have to go slow!!!” and then lost my shoe. This is the point where my memory ends and my mom said I used only my toe, straightened up my shoe and put it back on, amid laughs from the adults and walked to the alter.
My aunt says it was the best thing to happen to her wedding ceremony, which was apparently rather dull until that point 🙂
