I went to a wedding where the groom’s family had several foster children.  He and the bride decided that wanted all of the kids in the wedding.  The youngest ones – too young to walk down the aisle – were pushed by some of the older ones in those plastic ride-on toys.  Guests were falling over in their pews watching the kids during the ceremony as they swayed to the music with their hands in the air (like you might at a concert), tugged on uncomfortable dress clothes, and general were distracted.  The bride, groom, and minister did not seem to notice a single thing and never once reacted to any of the antics.  It was hilarious, but it was also really cute and entirely appropriate for that couple.

I was in a wedding about a year ago where the top layer of the cake fell on the floor during the reception-before it was cut! We noticed it was leaning, so they tried to rush the meal and cut the cake before it fell.  They didn’t make it, but no one seemed to care; everyone finished eating and they got the floor cleaned up in plenty of time for the dancing to begin!

I also had a relative get married and had her niece as the flowergirl.  The little girl was only 3 and knew very few of the guests (the wedding was in the grooms home-state 8 hours away, so the bride’s guest list was small).  When she was supposed to walk down the aisle, she took one look at everyone watching her and began to cry and run to her mother.  She refused to walk down the aisle or stand up during the cermony and continued crying loudly for the first 5 minutes of the ceremony. 

While neither of these are things I would hope for, there are certainly worse things that could happen.  If this is all that happens on my day, I’ll be just fine!
