Here’s some events from my FI’s cousin’s wedding (he’s the groom).
Invitations came out, date was on a Friday (ok not too bad, Sats are normally better for most folk though, but hey they wanted to save money)
The wedding was in a different county (ie destination wedding) so everyone had to travel and stay over in a hotel for two nights to accommodate this (ok fair enough, that’s where they wanted it)
Oh and guests had to pay for the coach which took us from the ceremony to the reception (reception being held in another county from the ceremony, so that’s three counties so far people)
The ceremony was held in a castle, which as beautiful as it was, had winding keep stairs that led to the ceremony room, in which guests had to ferry the groom’s elderly Grandmother (a wheelchair user) up and down (i.e. no disabled access)
When the photographs were being taken with all the guests, the Bride was asked to move slightly so she was more central to the picture, to which she demanded that her guests move around her.
Her Mother and Father in law were quite unwell on the day and didn’t know if they would make the reception. She demanded they attend saying “I’m not having two empty seats at my head table”.
The bride left her train down all day and insisted on walking through the dance floor at every given opportunity, so towards the end of the evening (once everyone had had a few drinks) her train was obviously being stood on, which resulted in her screaming (and I mean screaming) at a few of her guests that they should watch where they’re going.
At very end of the evening she demanded that all her guests stand in a circle while she and her new husband went round everyone to say goodbye (even although she was getting on the same coach as us all and staying in the same hotel), and when anyone moved slightly from the circle they were told to “GET BACK”.
