Well, technically, I haven’t seen it yet but I was invited to courthouse wedding to be followed by a happy hour reception at a local bar that serves free appetizers to customers.  Not confirmed yet, but I believe we have to buy our own drinks and food (if we want more than the free apps). Frown

 

ETA: There is nothing WRONG with a courthouse wedding OR a reception at a bar.  But it’s the free apps and happy hour part that have me a little weary.

I have a couple:

  • A drunk cousin kartwheeling into position to do the dollar dance with the bride and grazing her pretty face with his stupid foot in the process.
  • A drunk best man/groom’s brother giving the most uncomfortable, slurred ill-prepared speech I’ve ever heard. 4th grade show and tell was better than this business.
  • A drunk guest picking up and swinging around the bride, and subsequently dropping her on the ground.

Moral of the story: don’t be a drunk asshole at someone else’s wedding (or your own)!

I guess I didnt “see” this, but a DJ who would not play ANY requested songs.  Really?! Even the groom was getting pretty upset that HIS requests weren’t getting played. Then the DJ would say that a certain song was “requested” and then the dance floor was empty.

I think it’s a great idea.  These are more like the “What not to do’s” of weddings!

The worst thing I’ve ever seen was a bawling bride.  Not happy tears either.  From what I understand, the future in-laws were pretty vocally harsh about her wedding choices and I guess made a lot of nasty comments during the wedding.  It was horrible.

 

The other thing would probably be extremely vulgar dancing by a bridesmaid… as in, she intentionally flashed boob.  There were tons of kids there.

The best man at my first wedding vomited into his napkin at our reception. In plain sight.

Oh, as far as things that brides can control? 

 

I guess the biggest etiquette blunders were having guests move their chairs from ceremony to reception up a small hill about a quarter of a mile, not having chairs for people to sit in during a ceremony in high summer, and a cash bar while providing the bridal party and VIP’s with bracelets giving them freebies.
