I just went to my photographers website and I found my worst fear. The wedding they just posted included the photos of the bride and her father walking down the aisle. She looks infuriated in ALL of them. I’m thinking, what the heck? Well guess what…someone forgot to “cue” the groom, so he wasn’t even there when she walked down the aisle. He walked out after she did. Seriously?? They can never get that moment back.
There are lots of things I can let go if they go wrong at the wedding…limp flowers, dropping the wedding cake…but no groom at the altar? I would freak.
What is your worst wedding nightmare? Is there one thing you just could not deal with?

That’s a good question….I think my worst wedding fear is something happening to the groom…and assuming that’s not an issue and no one dies, a huge fight breaking out with drunken people everywhere. But it couldn’t go too far as to being utter chaos. At least utter chaos would result in some good photo ops. I think that just having three or four people get drunk and insult everyone, get in a fight, and then knock over the cake would spoil some happiness. But I don’t think that’s going to happen.

I wouldn’t have even started walking if he wasn’t there!
Although, my ceremony is going to be in a church so maybe that would be easier to figure out beforehand.
Poor girl 🙁

Yikes! How awful!
For my wedding to be ruined the following would have to happen: a close family member dying on my wedding day (or the night before) and something happening to my groom (he’s sick the day of, doesn’t show up, dead).

Yikes. Although the groom should have cued himself once he heard the processional kick in! I wouldn’t have included angry bride pics in my portfolio if I were the photographer either.
All my biggest wedding fears had to do with something going wrong in the ceremony. Song choice screw-up, microphone not working for vows, me passing out from fear of public speaking etc. I didn’t have a single fear about the reception.

Honestly, what you just described would not ruin my day. I think that now that I have gone through the whole planning process, I know that it’s not worth it to get upset about stuff like this. It wouldn’t have been according to plan, but I would have just laughed it off and moved on.
Things like a vendor not showing up or doing a bad job would have made me mad, but luckily nothing like that happened!

@MissHelen:“At least utter chaos would result in some good photo ops” haha i love it!! If people fell on the cake you could send it in to America’s Funniest Home Videos, lol.

As long as I end up married at the end of the day, I don’t care all that much how I get there.

I agree with some PPs that the only thing that would ruin my wedding would be if something happened to my FI or there was a family tragedy. Otherwise, all the things that go wrong make for good stories in the end.

The one thing I think would (partially) ruin it for me would be if people weren’t having a good time at the reception – ESPECIALLY if one of those people not having a good time was my groom. He doesn’t love parties and social situations, so I’m a little anxious about that. If I could tell people were bored, restless, or otherwise unhappy, I would be really sad/embarrassed.
Edit: Not counting anything truly horrible happening, like a death or severe illness/injury of FI, a close friend or family member.

It’s funny to look back at the wedding day and all the planning now that I am done. There is nothing short of a family member’s death that would have ruined the day.
Also, all the details I meticulously planned really weren’t important. My favorite part of the wedding was the mass when we had the moments of me walking down the aisle and seeing DH, us exchanging our vows, the rings, and the exit. I planned the whole reception and party for a year and in the end, I enjoyed the Catholic Mass more (and I’m not even that religious).

I think it’s kinda weird that the photographer would post pictures online (for all to see) of an upset bride. If i have a mishap on my day and it makes me upset, I don’t think I would like to have it posted for the world to see. Maybe that’s just me?
