I went to my FI’s cousins wedding early on when we were dating. Somehow I didn’t end up with a vegetarian meal and only ended up eating a little food. This combined with the open bar resulted in me getting really friendly with his family. I didn’t even know all of them before but the night ended in lots of hugs and “I love you”‘s! I guess it worked out though because they said they wanted to adopt me since I was so much fun!

A few stories from ours: 

A group,of guys kept taking their pants off in the photobootn

One of the guests was hunched over a trash can from cake cutting to the rest of the evening

Skmeone else tried to break dance and ended up wiping out a girl on the dance floor

We had “t-shirt time” at the very end where all the guys took off their tuxes and dress shirts.

I think that’s about it

we had a beer and wine hosted bar- i dont think there were too many crazy stories. my  children were dancing all night long  pushing people out on the dance floor. so people had to have lot of drinks to try to keep up with them. people hid flasks inside jackets not knowing we were doing alcohol.

We weren’t cool enough to pull off a dry wedding either, don’t worry! We had unlimited beer/wine/champagne. The most awesome way to chart the progression of the guests getting drunker was the photobooth! We got an album of all the strips and at the beginning it’s all happy couples smiling and kissing. By the end of the night it got a bit crazy with people cramming 8 faces in the pics and getting VERY creative with props and I laugh every time I see the pics! Even my 88 year old Grandma got in there with a feather boa and tiara.

We didn’t have a completely open bar – we hosted beer and mimosas (Sunday brunch wedding)…I think the craziest thing that happened was one of DH’s friends constantly hitting on my (married) mom, stumbling all over, and spilling his beer everywhere.  He kept calling my mom’s freckles “angel spots,” or something…lol

Well – one of our friends didn’t make it in the limo, ifyouknowhatImean – the limo pulled over on the side of the road because someone else “didn’t feel good” and some random guy grabbed my ass in the bar at the end of the night.  My hubby usually isn’t that type, but he was all “you want me to kick his ass?  I will!”

I have to say, I’ve never been to a dry wedding so I don’t know what those are like. I’m going to a wedding in a couple months where it won’t be dry, but I’ve been warned there will be a drought. I am dreading that wedding….

Anyway, on to your question. My favorite thing that happened at our wedding was….we had a photobooth and guests were supposed to take 1 copy of the photos and use the second copy for the scrapbook. Most followed the instructions. Including my sister. Who signed her page “Love, your drunk sister”. It is by far, my favorite page.

I was not a witness to it, but my mom attended a wedding where the bride got so drunk in the limo after the ceremony, that she passed out on the steps of the reception venue for an hour before she managed to stumble inside.

We had an open bar from 5pm all the way until the end of the reception at 1.

Three of my brothers buddies (who also all happen to be brothers) were tailgating in the Church parking lot before our ceremony…so typical of these three hahaha. The youngest one got really lit up at the reception and fell off the stage where we had the dance floor and almost took out one of the tables in the first row. At like, 9pm. We stuffed him into a towncar and sent him to the hotel to sleep it off lol. No harm no foul!

Our wedding was DEFINITELY a drinking wedding!  People tell us often that it was the best wedding they’ve ever gone to.  We had full open bar and people were hitting it hard.  Can’t remember too many crazy stories off the top of my head, but one of my husband’s friends went to dip my friend on the dance floor and drunkenly dropped her, I have a cousin named Dallas and my drunk friend kept calling her “Houston,” my friend decided to do a power air guitar during our bridesmaids song and cut her knee all up, and all of my friends left in the trolley, forgetting one of my friends in the bathroom.  They had to send the trolley back empty just for her 😉
