I am at a wedding right now, the reception was supposed to start (no cocktail hour) right after the wedding which is two blocks away in a really small town. That was two and a half hours ago. The bridal party is out drinking at the bars and I guess forgot they had guests waiting for them. The kids are getting bored, no food, and too much alcohol. They are not getting photos done as the photographer is here waiting like the rest of us. Even the closest family members are getting ticked. I just can’t believe 2 and a half hours – this is a little ridiculous.
Sorry, just had to vent, beside I am really bored.

UGh – that is completely unacceptable.
I would be pissed. You are their guest and they definitely aren’t acting that way!
I am sorry! I hope it gets better!

I would be ticked too.
That is really inconsiderate. If I were you, I would just leave; maybe go to where they are and let them know how ticked of I was. That is just so wrong. I am sorry you and the rest of the guests are having to go through this.

I’m with @nortitake, I would leave. Thats so inconsiderate! I couldn’t even imagine doing that to my guests. This seems like something you would see on Bridezillas!

Whhhat? That’s crazy! Why would they rather go to the bar than the reception? I hope they show up soon…!

Oh my word…. that’s just unacceptable. I would also leave, and let them know how inconsiderate that was. Who DOES that??

Wow – that’s beyond rude. I don’t understand this “lets go to a bar and get sloshed on our wedding day” mentality. Forgive me if I’m mistaken but I was SURE the couple were supposed to rock up to their own reception! LOL

That is very rude. I wonder if anyone could call them and tell them to come to their own reception?

Right now she’s standing there for all to see while they bustle her dress while trying to keep her standing. We are not long for this reception. Lord grant me the strenght….

Lol, I agree with Kaitlin. It’s extremely inconsiderate to make your wedding guests wait that long. I could understand maybe 15-30 minutes.
