I’ll bite. At the wedding of an acquaintance, a man approached my Fiance to try to talk him into getting married young because people wait too long these days (had never met him- he was a member of the bride and groom’s church.) He backed off when he found out we were already engaged, but I was pretty embarrassed for the bride that this guy was walking around trying to convince all her friends that they need to get married right now.

At my first wedding, one of the groomsmen who was also ex-H’s cousin strong armed us into inviting his brand new Girlfriend to the wedding. He couldn’t even tell us her last name for the invitation, but want us to invite her to a wedding with such a limited guest list that I couldn’t invite my roommates from the year before with whom I was quite close. We had 70 guests, about 50 of which were family. Anyway, they broke up within weeks of getting the invitation, but he sill responded for them both as yeses and without telling us brought a fraternity brother of his. We found out at the rehearsal. Said fraternity brother then proceeded at the wedding to get VERY drunk and to hit on all the MILFs and MILnotsomuchtoF.

Last year, at my best friend’s wedding, she had one guest (friend of the groom), who had taken full advantage of the open bar really early.

Before making it clear that he did not like the bride (to her face in front of the whole room) because he’d only met her once before the wedding and he didn’t trust her to make “his boy” happy, he had sized up my fiance across the dinner table and tried to instigate a fight by calling my fiance “mutton chops”.

My fiance has nothing even close to mutton chops. My fiance is also 6’7″ and would have handed this guy’s ass to him if he would have continued making a scene, but the groom asked him to leave.

At another friend’s wedding, two friends had a lot to drink and really started making out hot and heavy in a public place. It was kind of tacky.

ugh .. I’ve seen the floating candle/flower centerpiece been taken to the bathroom, dumped out and people played quarters with the glass bowl.  

 

At that same wedding I saw a … girl .. in a mirror dress that barely covered her arse be bent over a table (she was NOT invited and the guy just rolled up with her) and sex was simulated, which they later had the ….. decencey??? to move the show to a coat room … where we could hear them  going at it…

@vivalavida:  I wouldn’t blame the alcohol. The bad guest at my wedding would’ve been a douchebag no matter what and probably would’ve gone to the hotel bar and bought drinks of we didn’t have them available.

I do understand your concern for alcoholics, though, despite the fact that at my second wedding we had a full open bar even though my grandfather, my dad, my older brother, and my groom are all alcoholics and that some of DH’s family doesn’t drink for religious reasons. We had absolutely no problems at that wedding with over-drunk guests (nor at my first wedding with any of our actual guests).

I will never forget this story.  We were at a friend’s (groom) wedding and his bestman/best friend is black.  At the very begining of cocktail hour the grandmother of the groom talked to us at our table.  She seems like a nice grandma everyone and was laughing until she says.  “Oh my gosh! Did you see Jacobs (fake name) bestman.  I never knew he was friends with someone so dark skinned.  I guess we all know he’s not racist now.”  Our table became completely silent.  The moment she left we just all stared at each other like “did she really just say that?”

I went to a wedding of a real close friend one time and drunk people were well being drunk.  They had a photoshoot area for the guest.  It was set up so that either you could take the photo or a friend could.  Well this drunk guy was trying to show off to these two ladies right next to the photo area.  In the process he almost knocked over the tripod.  Thankfully the mother of the bride was talking to some friends close by.  She just barely caught the tripod before it hit the gound.  The mother was so worried it would happen again that she stayed right next to the tripod all night.

At my brother’s wedding, my aunt was obnoxious. Said aunt has hated his wife for years because one year she got her a really lame stationary set and she didn’t act over the moon thrilled about it. The next year she gave her a broken dollar store candle, and she also pulled my brother aside at a family function to tell him he should leave his fiance (I think girlfriend at the time, actually) and that he was too young to be in such a long-term relationship. (For the record, he was probably about 26 or so at the time and not engaged yet, while my aunt was married at that age.)

At the wedding, she proceded to get very “drunk,” meaning that she acted way more drunk than she actually was, and was dragging people to the dance floor who did not want to dance. She grabbed my fiance’s ass and shook it. Really, what it came down to was that she wanted attention, so she got it. She’s just got a penchant for drama, but it seems like she’s been settling down a lot in recent years, at least.

I havent been to a wedding in the last 10 years, so I dont have any stories. But I think my brother and cousin will be the odd people everyone would go home and tell their online forums about. Haha. They’re both extremely socially awkward. My cousin is very smart, but has literally zero human communication skills. He’ll randomly just go on about subjects that leave people staring at him in horror. Gotta love them though.

Yikes! I don’t remember anything extremely horrible from any of the weddings I attended to.

When I was 15, I attended a wedding where the best man just went around hitting on every female. He wasn’t drunk! But, he was offering them drinks, so you know what he wanted ๐Ÿ˜› He actually came over to me, I was like, “Dude, I’m 15”. I DID look alot older than 15. He said he didn’t care.      Creep!

And at my mothers backyard wedding, before the ceremony even started, someone tapped the keg and a couple people were trashed. I find this hilarious. Luckily, her wedding was extremely casual, as in, guests were wearing jeans & a tshirt, and they had kfc for dinner.
