- Wedding: June 2010
I went to a wedding (we are good friends of the groom) this weekend. I was so looking forward to it. The groom is a great guy and although we dont know the bride very well (we moved 300 miles away from them once they started getting serious) I knew it would be a wonderful wedding. They were haaving an outside wedding at a beautiful location. well, the bridesmaids start walking down the aisle and everyone seems a bit tipsy…giggly, and just being a bit silly. Then here comes the bride…she looked AMAZING! however, she was a bit tipsy as well. She laughed throughout the entire ceremony and even did a silly “i do”. SHe even swayed a bunch (she was NOT taking the ceremony seriously, it was kind of disturbing actually). Once they were pronounced husband and wife, she keep raising her arms “woooo” like she was in a club with her friends! it was awkward….very awkward. I am not sure if she took a valum or something or just too much alcohol.
Fast forward a few hours to the reception (7pm:wedding at 430). The bride is GONE! I mean, gone. I was in the bathroom the same time as her and looking in her eyes you could tell she was in blackout mode. (speaking of the bathroom it was “closed” for like an hour! both the mens and womens…it sucked). Well then after the meal the toasts happened and they were more like roasts. and not funny ones either. The Bridesmaid or Best Man mentioned the bride farting in front of him once…very loud and smelt awful WTF?! I would KILL him. The speeches were completely awkward and inappropriate. I wont go into detail but it was weird..very weird.
Anywho, the dancing starts and the bride acted like she was being filmed on girls gone wild! LOL She kept shaking her butt into random guys crotches. she kept bending over and doing “the sexy dance”. Over and OVER again, this went on for HOURS. She even was dancing dirty with the grooms DAD! it was so awkward. EVERYONE at our table was like, what is up with the bride? Is she ok? We all kept waiting for her to vomit. She even fell at one point. Her sister picked her up and took her to the bar to get anotehr drink! great idea!! The bride looked awful by 9pm. I am talking about crazy hair, mascara everywhere awful. it was bad. Oh, and she kept lifting up her dress. I felt so embarassed for her. However, I barly know her and it was not my place to do anything. Her BM’s and Maid/Matron of Honor were up there making asses of themselves with her.
The groom said to DH a few times that his bride was really nervous and had a bit too much to drink before the ceremony and that she has not stopped drinking since. Now, I get the nervous thing. I am not a drinker but I had a few sips of a screw driver before the wedding, and some wine at the reception. But she def over did it. I kept thinking that she would wake up the next day so embarassed. BUT…instead she posted that she had a great time and was super hung over!!!! So, obviously she was not ashamed.
Anyway-I just wanted to share this story with someone. Hoepfully this will help you brides to be from making this same mistake. DO NOT OVER DRINK. Seriously, know your limit and dont exceed it. I realize a wedding is a celebration and a lot of ppl like to drink to celebrate but dont over do it or you will make an ass of yourself. the worst part, she probably does not remember most of her wedding day. 🙁
Has anyone else experienced a similar situation?
