- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
Hehe, time to air out the dirty gossip! Who was on their worst behavior at your wedding?
Ours actually went pretty smoothly… one standout was Mr. Peng’s coworker and his Fiancee. She wore white to the wedding (which we didn’t really care that much about but…hello! She was getting married a few months later, I’m sure she heard of the whole "don’t wear white" thing), they made my friends take 6 polaroids of them at the guestbook because she didn’t like the way she looked (someone literally cut them off and said, "Um… that’s enough)… and then they gave us a $9 juice squeezer. Which we can all argue that a gift is a gift, but let’s also add that Mr. Peng went to the guy’s bachelor party later that month and they stayed at The Wynn in Vegas. Ok, high roller! Mr. Peng stayed at Harrahs for his bachelor party!
We decided in the end, it was better that they were such weirdos because it gave Mr. Peng and his coworkers something to talk about at work for a few days.
Not too shabby though, I must say there weren’t really shenanegans going on at our wedding. Whew!

We had a pretty good crown I must say. Hmmm…we had a nice array of drunks, all nice drunks, a couple sobbers, but harmless. I guess that was the worse. 2 families we had to harass to get their RSVP and for some reason both wanted adult plates for their children…uh HELLO?!!? And wouldn’t you know those were the people who gave us the cheapest gifts. One a cheapo $15 which was a pain to figure out where to return and the other, did they give a gift?…I have to check on that one.

Thankfully, all of our guests were very well behaved. It was the bartender that I was a little suspect of. I am pretty sure he made off with some bottles of liquor. It was a small wedding, so we noticed when something went missing.

@Niki: That’s funny! Our bartender was hilarious…served booze to EVERYONE, including tequila shots to my 14-year-old godson! I’m tellin ya, I think everyone was drunk at my wedding, they loved on that open bar like no other.

All of our guests were very well behaved, but there was one that sticks out in my mind. One of the groomsmen was married about a year before us — a grand $300K ++ wedding that was beyond my imagination. Ours was a modest $15K in comparison. So, the wife of this groomsman got drunk at our wedding and all she talked about the whole night was our first dance and how it was choreographed and why couldn’t she have done that at her weddigng, and then she would hit her husband playfully on the arm and say "see, even he’s willing to take dance lessons, our first dance could have been like theirs!". It was way too funny!

- Wedding: June 2008 - Hotel on the westside of Los Angeles
Two of our guests (family members) walked out of our ceremony because they didn’t approve (they were upset we were having a Muslim ceremony when my family is Christian). I actually didn’t find out about this until recently, so I was spared the drama on my big day, but yeah, I think they win.

How about a my BIL/groomsman who showed up drunk, disappeared during picture time (and consequently is not in the big wedding party pics), came onto the Maid/Matron of Honor (even though he brought a date), most likely invited at least one person who came who was NOT on the guest list, borrowed money from us, never paid back, missed the rehearsal and passed out drunk and naked in the suite we were using to store our stuff during the wedding? Oh also he puked in the sink. Welcome to the family!!!

Everyone was well behaved, but when we went around to the tables, a former roommate of mine was really sour because she was there dateless and had just spilled a soda into a really expensive purse she had borrowed. Of course, she didn’t tell me that, she just sulked, so I spent the rest of the evening worried that something was wrong.

- Wedding: October 2018 - Auberge du Soleil
Apparently at the end of our reception some of Mr. PN’s college friends tried to dunk someone in the fountain. We had already left at this point but heard about it later on. Apparently are wedding coordinator but teh kabash on that real quick!

- Wedding: November 2008 - 1930s Historic Building in Lakeland, FL
We didn’t have anyone really misbehaving at our wedding, but we did have about 6 people who assured me they were coming that week, then called me ON SATURDAY MORNING, to say they weren’t coming. There was a huge gap in our tables, and all that pre-paid food went to waste. I felt a sting of anger, but got over it quickly.
Now, there was a mighty good number of drunken maniacs at our wedding, but hey they were all of our friends, and they made dancing much easier! 😉

There were LOTS of drunk people at our wedding and we did not even have an open bar. My BIL’s friend (their families were invited too) showed up completely wasted to the ceremony 2 people finished off a bottle of whiskey then proceeded to the reception only to drink more and to be carried out at 8:30 pm. Then the ushers and the table they sat at were drinking "ice tea" I don’t know who carries ice tea in a flask hmmmm…they were so toasted when it came to the garter toss one usher tackled the other usher, not for the garter because I had just sat down in the chair!! My Father-In-Law was pretty drunk, along with my dad and the rest of the family. My aunt was pretending she was not drunk but could not stand straight. It was SOOOOOOO FUN!!! There was no drama suprisingly it was all entertaining!!

- Wedding: June 2008 - St. Catherine of Genoa, Jin Asian Cuisine Restaurant
hmm… I think for the most part there weren’t any serious incidents.
However, two kind of odd things stick out.
1. We had a couple get into a fight. They tried to be discreet… kinda. They were arguing infront of the bathrooms. Kind of awkward when you have to take a tinkle and had to walk by them…
2. We had some one whip out text books and started studying at our wedding… Ouch! I didn’t think our wedding was that boring!

My cousin was an usher and he somehow got completely wasted during the cockatil hour. I never knew about it until later, but he apparently threw up and passed out before dinner so his parents (my aunt and uncle) had to carry him out and leave before dinner was served. I wondered why they left in such a hurry! The next day he came to the farewell brunch and HE HADN’T SHOWERED!!! He smelled like vomit and wet dog. Ew!

i love this thread.
ours was uneventful in that area. Just the usual drunkeness.
My sister did have the dj played my most hated song from when we were growing up. We Built This City, truly terrible- and had the DJ say it was my favorite.
And she gave all the men over 40/50 a key and Then over the Microphone asked all my "old boyfriends" to turn in my house key to her- all the old men shuffled up to drop their key into the bucket.

At a wedding I was in the bride’s friend from college got so drunk she was eating grapes off the centerpieces, fell on top of the band’s music stand knocking over a microphone and was cut off by the bartender by 8 p.m. It was classy.
