chrissybee:  No, but we did get a call the morning of a wedding from the MOB to tell us that the groom had changed his mind the night before!

chrissybee:  We were going for the bride. The weird thing is, they ended up getting married a few years later! Not sure I’d want to marry someone that dumped me the night before our wedding!!

I did once go to a wedding where the bride was an hour late and the groom was looking paler and paler.  The bride was late because the limousine was late and then the driver suddenly announced he was almost out of petrol (gasoline) and needed to go to a petrol station to fill up the car.  The detour to get the fuel was about 15 miles and then they got stuck in a traffic jam.

I also went to a wedding where there had been a funeral the day before.  Someone had forgotten to take down the “In sympathy” signs so we had to rush around and remove them before the bride arrived.

I even went to a wedding reception where the groom, on giving his speech, gave the name of his previous girlfriend rather than his bride.  Luckily he was corrected by his best man.

At another wedding reception the minister gave the longest blessing before the meal that I’ve ever heard.  After about 10 minutes (or possibly three hours) he was eventually interrupted by a small boy who, on seeing the starter, asked his parents in a loud voice “Is this all we’re having?”

I haven’t witnessed it, but my dad knows some people it happened to. The bride called off their very expensive destination wedding that the groom’s family was paying for the morning they were all supposed to leave. The groom’s family owned the resort all the guests were staying at and was putting everyone up for a week, all expenses paid. Everyone had already booked flights, so the family honored their commitment and the guests got a free vacation out of it. It was a really classy thing to do, IMO. Also, the bride’s father was already at the airport when he got word that she had called it off and had a heart attack when he heard the news (he recovered).

heputaringonit:  Yup, that’s what my dad said. I don’t know for sure, but I would imagine he already had heart issues and the shock brought it on.

The story overall makes me kind of hate the bride, and I don’t even know her.

Not right at the altar, but pretty close…about 3 days before the wedding, the groom bailed and decided he couldn’t go through with the wedding!  It was pretty shocking, to say the least.  The bride was devastated.  No one knew he felt this way.  I felt horrible for her.  I can’t imagine her heartbreak.
