I have a funny story from during a pause in the vows, MID-CEREMONY….
My grandma (who has alzheimers and is drifting into dementia) was sitting front row with my parents and my granddad, and she was holding the birdseed bundle she found on her chair (for a birdseed toss as we walked back up the aisle married). And VERY LOUDLY she says to my granddad “hey….what do I do with this?”, and he replies “you THROW it, love”. So just as I turn to see what they’re talking about, she brings her arm up and throws the bag of birdseed at me, wrappings and all (it was like a beanbag!), it hits my back and slides down my skirt to the ground. I found myself laughing uncontrollably, along with a LOT of other people, and she’s just sitting there smiling at me, then says “well come on, get on with it! we haven’t got all day!”. Which only made us all laugh even harder. It’s a moment I will cherish and remember forever – my grandma being my grandma.

@MrsPuddingface: Love this story! And I’m glad you laughed instead of being angry – you’ll always have that great memory of your grandma. 🙂

my first bridesmaid got her shoe stuck between the boards on the way up, and when she realized she couldn’t unlodge it, she just slipped it off discreetly and walked the rest of the way on tippy toe on her one foot…. my next bridesmaid walked down and just kinda looked down weirdly but realized she didn’t wanna stop to pick it up…. a guest got up and it took him 3 minutes to unlodge the shoe. Once i got to the front, our Justice of the Peace said Teri, would you like to go get your shoe now…. i was like huh! they filled me in on the story after. haha.
my 60 year old aunt had a dance off with my old manager who’s like 35. it was priceless…. she really could keep up…. Then she was dirty dancing with my hubbys coworker who’s like 22… hahaha.
Granny was dancing up a storm…. which was hilarious…. she’s 86
my Mother-In-Law walked out of the bathroom, not knowing her skirt was tucked in her panyhose… granny was behind her giggling but before she fixed it for her, my old manager noticed and said “you must be Trevor’s mom” hahah.

Found out from my cousin that as we were walking back down the aisle the young waiter (we got married in a hotel) who was waiting at the door for us with champagne, tipped the silver tray the glasses were on and the champagne went crashing to the floor. His boss did the classic click of the fingers, pointed furiously to the bar screaming “get two more glasses, go, go, go”. I had no idea and wish it had been captured on film or in the photographs. I love stuff like that and it sums us up pefectly.

All the stuff we heard about later were just the funny drunk moments from the guests.
My bridesmaid and another friend swapped spouses during dancing. They were having a “dance off” when one looked and her dance partner and said “I don’t lose” and backed up. She took off running to do the dirty dancing lift, and when he lifted her he brought her whole dress up with her. Needless to say her ass and thong were hanging out. Too funny! 😉 It was late night, so anyone still there shouldn’t have been too offended.
I did hear about how upset my DH was about having to make the rain call 30 minutes before our ceremony. He was really worried about how I was going to take it, and everyone told me later that he was so concerned. I thought that was really sweet. He even called me before I got dressed to talk to me about the weather.

My Mother-In-Law told me a couple of weeks ago that at our reception, DH’s aunt got SUPER drunk. After dinner and dessert, as they were clearing everyone’s wine glasses off the table, the aunt got upset because she wasn’t done drinking yet, went over to where they were putting all the used wine glasses, and started drinking the wine out of all the glasses that weren’t empty.
The next morning she mentioned to someone that she was “a little hungover” NO KIDDING! haha!

Mine aren’t nearly as funny as some posted here (grrrr- ring bear! Bisexual! Birdseed bean bag!). We got married during a 90 and humid heat wave sans AC, and I was afraid it would be too hot for people to dance. We moved the dancing outside onto the deck. When the DJ played Single Ladies, DH’s favorite dancing song, he burst onto the dance floor and showed us all moves I didn’t know he was capable of. All I could do was hold onto the bannister to keep myself from falling down I was laughing so hard. Later in the night, during Baby Got Back, I found myself smacking my aunt’s rump, and the video shows my sister (MOH) giving a friend (my BM) some rump smacks. They didn’t know each other before the wedding weekend, and neither of them are that sort, so we had a good laugh. I’ve watched the dancing portion of our video repeatedly.
