So now that I’m married (yay!) and back from my honeymoon, people are starting to tell me stories about conversations/moments from my wedding that I knew nothing about (all good/funny) and I love it. Here are my favorites:
1) There was a toddler at the wedding who told her mom that I was a princess.
2) My Mother-In-Law had pinned my dress right before the ceremony to help cover the edge of my bra, and she mentioned it to my mom later so that “whoever helps her take her dress off knows to take it out first.” My mom just looked at her, and then says, “Umm…I think that will be your son.” (Awkward!)
Tell me yours!

The first one is just plain adorable, and the second is HILARIOUS! XD
I don’t have any since our wedding isn’t until August 4, but I’d love to see some more!

I found out about a conversation between my Grandma and DH’s Grandma. DH’s Grandma was old before her time, and kind of wallows in being old. People were trying to get her to dance more, and she said ‘I am 78 you know’, so my Grandma replies ‘So, I was 81 yesterday’, dancing away! I wish I’d have heard it!

Hah my husband’s nephew, 10 years old, ended up catching the garter. Cute kid, kind of awkward, love him to death. Apparently he didn’t understand exactly what a garter was. So he came up to my husband afterwards, holds out the garter, and says “Uh, I think I have your wife’s underwear.” I almost died when they told me!
Oh, and we had 2 flower girls (both 6 years old). They had silk petals they were tossing down the aisle. I guess one girl had one petal left and it was stuck to her hand thanks to static or something. Her mom kept whispering at her to just sit down, but she was DETERMINED to get that thing thrown. Apparently she sat down at the end of the aisle and just rubbed her hand on the carpet to get it off. Meanwhile I’m behind closed doors wondering where the hell the cue music is for me to walk down the aisle!

It’s not from my wedding but I think this is hilarious.
The bride’s cousin was a groomsmen, he started drinking after the ceremony (2:30) and he didn’t stop the entire night. My Fiance and I noticed that he was highly highly intoxicated so we took him in to the bridal suite (I was the wedding coordinator and Fiance was a groomsmen so it was ok.) I start porting him a glass of water, he screams at me “Woman I don’t want water, no no no no no no no no no…….” I tilit his head back and I force it down his throat. After a few seconds of this he takes the glass of water out of my hand to drink it himself. I excuse myself to go to the ladies room for a second and to get the groomsmen an asprin. While I am in the ladies room he is screaming “WATER!! WATER!! WATER ALL GONE NEED MORE!!!!” I hurry up in the ladies room, come back and pour more water for him, all while my fiance is on one of the couches laughing histerically. To try to sober him up I leave the room and I grab some dinner rolls and some cookies. I come back and hand him the plate. “I don’t want these, no no no no no no no no no..” I shove the dinner roll in his mouth and his face lights up. He starts talking about how these are the best dinner rolls he has ever had. I get him to eat 2 of them and some cookies, but when the DJ puts on journey I lost him. He ran out of the bridal suite into the ballroom and onto the dancefloor. He grabs the brides arms and pratically rips them off because he is so excited for Journey to be on. Luckily after that song his Mother started taking care of him so I was off the hook.

Wow – all very funny stories! Almost makes me nervous for what can happen at our day.
I have a story, not very funny, kind of embarassing…I was in a wedding a few years ago and we had a shuttle from the reception venue to the hotel. Well 1 bridesmaid was so drunk on the bus and she was holding one of the centerpieces (huge vase with flowers in it) she vomitted into the vase! GROSS! She was sitting directly across from me. I couldn’t wait to run off of the bus. The next morning when we checked out, the vase was sitting outside of the hotel on the ground. YUCK!

DH’s little cousin/godson was our ringbearer. He was three years old. DH had told him how important his job was and that he was going to bring the rings to us so we could get married, and the RB was SO EXCITED that he was going to help. Of course, we weren’t about to trust the kid with the real rings, but we planned to get some fake rings to tie onto the pillow. But we forgot.
The kid didn’t.
He walked all the way down the aisle, bowed to the altar at the front like he was supposed to, and then stood there in front of DH for a moment. DH said, “Great job! You did it! Thank you!”
The RB’s lip started quivering, and he said, “But I don’t have the rings to give you… I haven’t given you the rings!”
DH said, “No, no, you did good, I have them! You did it!”
The RB was so confused. He just stood there for a good minute telling DH that he hadn’t done his job yet, and he didn’t want to sit down until he had! DH told him over and over again that he had done well and finally had to gently nudge him toward the seats.
We keep saying that 25 years from now, when our RB is all grown up and dating some nice girl he wants to marry, it’s going to be all our fault when his proposal to her gets ruined because he has some sort of huge breakdown because he thinks he’s lost the ring. Oops.

We heard of all the inappropriate behavior – like FOUR couples having sex in the woods!!! Apparently a lot of people were feeling frisky that night!
(PS – we got married at a renovated barn, so there was a lot of wooded area around our venue)

One of our male single friends (27 years old) went and had sex with one of my PARENTS newly-seperated friends. In her van. In the parking lot.
😐 LOL!!! Still makes us laugh!

Garter tosses usually end up either making funny stories or painfully awkward moments….
I was at a friend’s wedding and she was really quite embarassed about the whole thing. So, garter comes off, gets tossed- and her 4-year old nephew catches it! To make it even cuter and more hilarious, he promptly put it on his head and ran around the whole night like that!
I don’t think he understood the point 😉

We invited all of DH long distance family because he has a very small immediate family. Since his parents haden’t seen all there brothers and sisters in a very long time, they all pretty much combined their tables and had one giant old people party! I heard later that my dad was talking to a big group of people and “Looks like the old folks are really having a good time.” or so he thought. Later people told me he said the “Old F***s” unknowingly. Pretty much epic hilarity.

One of my bridesmaids almost tripped going down the aisle – she kind of twisted on her ankle but managed to save it just in time!
