@eloping: I was thinking the same thing!. Most weddings are so predictable it hurts.

This puts my brother’s first wedding into perspective.  At the reception, they sat everyone around one long table.  Every couple of feet, there was a bottle of wine.  The bride’s Presbyterian relatives all ostentatiously pushed the wine away from them.  My alcoholic relatives ostentatiously gathered it up.

At my best friends wedding the power went out, and because the venue hadn’t used the generator in so long, it didnt work.  It was a big enough power outtage that all the generators in a 2 hour radius were sold out.  The bride got ready by candle-light and flashlight (which we had to keep giving back to the kitchen so they could prepare for dinner). Luckily the groom was able to secure a small generator strong enough for the dj. Also luckily the venue had gas grills.  But the DJ wasnt there until after the ceremony, so no music (we hummed her down the aisle). Then the rain started, cutting pictures in more than half, getting the brides dress wet and dirty and putting the entire bridal party in a room that was pitch black while the insane coordinator waited to let us be announced because dinner wasnt near ready.  The wedding over all was great, but it was definately insane.  Their honeymoon went the same… with the highlight being the groom getting bit by a tick and ending up in the ER for 3 hours, and the bride hitting a parked van on a scooter and almost getting a ticket. Nothing like the crazy wedding above, but an interesting wedding they will never forget.

My BIL accused one of my friends of hitting his kid at the end of the night. He came up all pushing, wanting to fight, being an a-hole. As I was trying to break up the inevitable fight, I tripped on my dress and broke my arm. Still in a cast 🙁

@Pinksapphire:  I don’t think anything could top that!  Luckily, I don’t have any horror stories from my wedding or any that I’ve been to.

@Pinksapphire: In a way. He still thinks it’s justified because he thinks my friend hit his kid. Thing is, his kid is a know liar… It’s actually a mess because he won’t admit he acted badly.
