@iarebridezilla:  You had better post that pic. The ladies were pretty tame about the bouquet toss, but the guys were duking it out for my garter! Up on each others shoulders and everything lol.

Alittle background. This was a backyard wedding and we provided our own booze.

People got crazy in the photobooth, jamming as many people as they could in there or going in solo. I have the CD that is full of boobies and one or two um sausages… my Brother-In-Law was wearing a prop throughout the reception and forgot that he had it.

One the older woman kept falling on the dance floor. I counted about 5 falls in a matter of minutes.

People were throwing up in bushes and on the horse trail out in front of the house.

One lady kept hugging me and saying how much she loves me.

My Maid/Matron of Honor, some of the bridal party and some guests all jumped into the pool.

There was alittle fight between two men when one of them called the other’s wife “The Help” because she looked hispanic.

One of the groomsmen stumbled into the master bedroom of the house and saw my 17 year old sister’s nude upper body as she was changing. He swears he can’t remember that, yeah sure…. 

My Mother-In-Law pushed us out the door, telling us we better leave now. We were driving away and saw my husband’s uncle wandering around in the middle of the street….

@yellowshoe:  We just went to my 80-something year old great aunt’s wedding (her 4th), which was the first dry wedding I’ve ever been to. To be fair, it was just a cake and punch reception at the church, but my aunts got bored because there was no alcohol lol. They started drawing inappropriate things on the placemats (that were supposed to be pages for a guestbook-type thing that they supplied crayons to write with). 

I’m pretty much expecting lots of fun and interesting things like these to happen at our wedding, between my aunts and FI’s friends and some of the cousins.

@yellowshoe:  The worst part is that they were doing it during the speeches or whatever, so we’re sitting there giggling and trying not to draw attention to ourselves. Of course, these are the ladies who are disappointed that there won’t be anything penis-shaped at my bachelorette.

At my brothers wedding he seemed to keep disappearing at the reception. When the photo’s came back (everyone was given a disposable camera to take snaps on then hand back) nearly every picture of him was of him taking shots and/or looking extremely drunk.

At a Sikh wedding – there were so many people and it went on for so long that they literally drank the bar dry and the venue staff had to go out and buy more because they still hadn’t finished xD

Ours was a cash bar (regional thing, it was ok, I promise!) with some hosted kegs…and it was by all means a drinking wedding! We had the good, the bad, and the ugly. We had fights and make-ups, make outs, someone getting a bloody nose from “doing the worm” (aka, faceplant on the dance floor), a scream-along to Don’t Stop Believing, what could possibly be the biggest chicken dance ever, adult men who couldn’t find their shoes, a bridesmaid laying on the sink in the restroom to “cool off”, a drunk guy beat boxing in the lobby and ordering pizza for everyone at 4:00AM, I taught my grandpa how to Dougie, grandmas were up dancing until 2AM, and to end the night, there was a 23 year old man on his knees singing and crying to Back Street Boys while his Fiance danced with me on the faaaaar side of the dance floor. Awesomeness.

I swear, if this is how our crew parties, I’m planning a killer 5 year anniversary party because it needs to happen again!

Apparently I had a one woman dance party after like 6 glasses of champagne. I’d lost my husband somewhere so I just started rocking out.

I feel like I was the only one not drunk at my wedding; however, most others were Which is great for the photobooth pics!. Most notably my cousin.

We got married at the Science Center, and when we were leaving, I saw him jump the glass barrier into the turtle/alligator exhibit (they were little, BUT STILL!). He threw his shirt in, an alligator was swimming with his shirt and my cousin was in a boxing stance. Then the security guard came. I was yelling at cousin convinced we were all going to be arrested… for what I have no idea, but it seemed logical!

Our wedding would probably be classified a drinking wedding 🙂 No one got out of hand, but everyone was having a great time and we had an open bar. It was definitely a celebration! A lot of guests have told us how it was such a blast, followed up with “I was pretty drunk,” haha.

Here’s a photo of the shots lined up for all the men before the ceremony. We went through quite a bit of vodka, but to be fair, DH is Russian!
