My fiance was in a wedding last weekend and he split his pants. The bride didnt even know til yesterday when I said something to her. She was laughing so hard she almost peed. The tuxedo shop must have given him like 3 sizes too small because his pants were painted on and of course he didn’t put them on til he arrived at the church. the funniest part is, he doesn’t wear underwear so you could see his entire side of his butt cheek. Thank god i was able to run to the tuxedo place before the reception and get him a new pair but it was funny

As I was going through my pictures with my Mom and Aunt they told me that one of my jr. flower girls didn’t know she was supposed to drop petals down. So audience members had to tell her lay down your petals. Well, instead of laying down the petals she layed the whole bucket down. It was PRICELESS! Loved it. It’s the little things that make your wedding one of a kind. : )
Here’s the pic:

At our wedding, one of DH’s friends ran, jumped, and slid across the bar (like sliding down a banister, but across the bar). He wasn’t drunk; I have no idea what he was thinking! Obviously the bartender cut him off – even though I think he kept drinking through friends getting him beer. I wish I had seen it, though!

I just remembered one! When we got our photos back, I flipped through them and found these:
DH doesn’t remember it, and neither of us recognized the kid for months! We finally discovered it was a cousin DH hadn’t seen in a while.

My nephew and niece were our flower girl and ring bearer. At the rehearsal she got down the aisle and said “That was beautiful! This is the castle and I am the princess.”. The actual day, she covered her eyes the whole way down and my nephew (who is 5) said to himself as he sat down “Never doing that again.”. I cried I laughed so hard when my mom told me.

This actually happened before our wedding but my nephew (RB)didn’t want to wear his “suit” because he thought people were going to laugh at him, when we asked him why would people laugh at him he said because he would be in a “bear” suit he thought because he was a “ring Bearer” he had to wear a Bear Suit! it was the cutest thing ever once we told him he didn’t have to wear that and he would be all dressed up like the groom he was on board!

Our ring bearer (13 months old) did his job wonderfully, walked down the aisle to his dad who was one of the Groomsmen, and then threw the ring pillow at DH’s grandma. NO idea why.

@CTbride2010: lol! Awesome. My parents went to a wedding several years ago that had something similar happen. The ring bearer took forever to get down the aisle, and at first my parents thought he was just shy, but then he got to their row, stopped walking, and growled at everyone in the row. He kept doing that to each row all the way down the aisle! Later on, my parents were there when the boy’s mom asked him what he was doing. He proudly announced, “Duh! I’m the ring bear!”

My Bridesmaids did an awesome job of covering somethings that are funny now, but probably would have freaked me out at the time!
1) One side of the icing of my wedding cake fell, just moments before I walked in to see it. They quickly put it back on and turned the cake, as I walk in gushing about how awesome the cake is.
2) We had a candy bar, and had bought a ton of candy. Apparently some got left at the hotel (everyone thought my husband just forgot it, but the 10lbs of missing candy was later recovered! lol) and someone had to make an emergency trip to the store less than 30 minutes before everything started..
3)Moments before the bridesmaids were to begin walking out, one of the girls necklaces broke…. Them describing the act of finding something to tie it back together was hilarious!
I am extremely lucky to have such amazing friends as bridesmaids, without them I know my day would not have been what it was!!!! Our wedding was everything I imagined and more. BUT I must say, I’m glad it’s done! I’m ready to move on with the rest of our lives!!

Not from my wedding, but from a friend’s wedding. She was from a welsh speaking family and her husband was from the North of England. The grandfathers were discussing the couple and their hopes for the future and the Welsh grandfather said to the English father. “I am happy that John and Jane have decided to raise their kids bisexually. That’s how we raised Jane and I think being bisexual really helped her get further in life. I’m bisexual, my wife’s bisexual, everyone in my family is bisexual, and everybody in our village are bisexual.
He meant Bilingual bless him….

These is the exact reason why I got a videographer…..so I can see all the things that I missed! For instance…
My 14 month old nephew that everyone told me wasn’t going to be able to walk down the aisle, he not only walked..but RAN down the aisle..the older kids chased him behind
The florist forgot to wrap one of the girl’s bouquets in white ribbon like the rest of the BM’s bouquets..she hid it from me the entire time and wrapped it with paper…
My Father-In-Law, who is 60, jumped on my uncles back ( who is 6’4 and about 220lb) while the band sang SHOUT
My now husbands 4 year old nephew kept calling his dad by his first name and begging him to let him dance with me…but everytime they went up to me, the 4 year old got so shy and ran away and I had no idea why
I’m sure there are plenty more..I can’t wait to see the video!!

Mentioned one fo these in another thread;
One of my readers had a few drinks to calm his nerves. He then got up and made jokes about being an alcoholic and stumbled over a few words in the reading – even asking me if certain words existed at one point. This same person got very drunk and apparently showed 3 people he was wearing Banana Man underwear to go with our blue and yellow colour scheme. He eventually left fairly early into the evening, insisting he had been called away to investigate a bomb scare somewhere. Lol!!!
And another –
Our DJ was totally useless. Didn’t play anything we wanted, even when we gave him a disc with some tracks on! So at the end of the night one of our friends grabbed the mic off him and she squealed into the mic “This wedding has been TOTALLY DOPE!” And then cackled loudly into the mic so it boomed round the whole room lmao. She’s awesome!
THEN the best man – who was extremely drunk and had spent the evening hopping around spilling drinks all over the dancefloor, grabbed the mic from her and said he wanted to do a speech. It went something like this – “(Groom) said I didn’t have to do a speech earlier, but I’m going to do one now. (Groom and Bride) asked me to be the best man which is an honour. I am honoured by the love they have for themselves and for me….” and then he broke into some rap/MC that bared no relevance to anything but was hilarious. After the evening was over a few people hung around the bar area. He was on the other side to everyone else, and was not spotted for a while until we heard music. He was playing it on loud speaker from his phone, had his head in his hands and was drunkenly slurring and singing along to this really depressing song. My husband went round to find out what was wrong and it turned out to be because the barmaid he had his eye on had left lol.

I feel like I missed so much at our wedding! I was just in a happiness bubble and didn’t notice anything/anyone but my husband. So we missed a lot 🙂
A few examples:
- During the ceremony, our ring bearer (5 years old) was picking wedgies, rubbing himself and mouthing stuff to his parents when they were motioning him to stop!
- One of the groomsmen got wasted and ended up passing out in the woods behind the parking lot. He was going to sleep there until Mother-In-Law made him get up!
- Both of our grandmothers drank moonshine that same groomsman brought!
