I don’t think I’ve ever attended a wedding that wasn’t 100% normal.  So I’m going to say it was the bridal party coming into the venue on ATVs.  Oh… that was my wedding.

At my cousin’s wedding, a bridesmaid ran out the side door of the Catholic church, during the ceremony. to throw up outside. She was fine the rest of the day, so it was likely alcohol-related. And that couple is no longer married, although I don’t think that’s related to the vomiting.

echomomm :  I couldn’t actually watch it, I was mortified. It was a “hillbilly” wedding. The bride wore a custom white camo dress with orange accents. The groom and groomsmen wore camo vests and camo crocs (the shoes). Soooo yeah. It was lovely 😂

Edit – the placecard holders were also made of shotgun shells.

My bf’s sister-in-law showing up with bridal hair and a white dress at a cousin’s wedding, telling everybody her own one won’t be this boring and the bride’s dress was ‘not very flattering’ – including the bride’s brother who she didn’t know. 

At a friend’s wedding a ~60 year old aunt did a belly dance on the stage.

Edit: At my sister’s wedding, the marriage registrar had to literally shout at her ‘bride, I mean you!’ when she didn’t react to being called Mrs. XXX. That was so funny and kind of strange.

At a friend’s wedding the pastor sang some bizarre song that I’d never heard before and never been able to find. He wasn’t an especially good singer and the song was about the impossible happening. 

The wedding party clearly wasn’t aware this was happening as several of the groomsmen had faces that clearly indicated they were trying thier hardest not to laugh. I accidentally caught the eye of my friend sitting next to me and almost lost it.

At the same wedding, the favors were candy canes with a note attached. I thought it was thier love story and decided to read it aloud in the car on the ride home. Nope! It was about the bride’s struggle with porn addiction.

Oh and one of the bridesmaids made an HIV joke in her toast that was really bizarre and not funny at all.

hikingbride :  the heck, which bride would attach such a story to a wedding favor and why would she want everybody to know!? I’m laughing so much right now.

aventurin :  It was the most bizarre thing! I was so confused! It seemed like such a personal story to tell and it had nothing to do with her hunsband – who I fogot to mention was also her step-brother.

I was in a wedding once where the best man lost his luggage on the way to the venue and ended up wearing khaki shorts and a red t-shirt at the altar. At the same wedding, the bride had a good friend who was a professional belly dancer and she did a performance at the reception with a sword on herr head and fire lanterns in her hands.

My cousin married a local news caster, so seeing a bunch of people from TV at their reception was kinda weird. 

A different cousin had a pagan wedding where both he and the bride wore green velvet hooded robes. 

Yet another cousin was nationally ranked as a volleyball player, so after the ceremony the entire bridal party went over to the net in their wedding attire and played a set.

I could go on. I have so many cousins…

Probably where they played Highway to Hell as the bride walked down the aisle 

It’s an AC DC rock song where the lyrics are literally  “I’m on the highway to hell…” 

Then another where the groomsmen all had light sabers

My BIL’s wedding wasn’t weird but really awkward at times. 

The man of honor wore a dress. He wasn’t into crossdressing or trans so it was out of place. My husband walked down the aisle with him, luckily for the MOH had pants and a shirt to change into for the reception. He seemed uncomfortable all night when people made fun of him for the dress.
