@iarebridezilla:  You sound so much like me. I didnt go overboard with decorating, didnt sweat the little details and people told me they had more fun at our wedding than any other, and my friend told me she now believes she can get married one day because my wedding was so “easy” to attend.LOL! And I totally attribute most of this to the booze!

The best “drunk story” I have is my mom’s good friend (who has known me forever) fell off the drunk bus when it got back to the hotel and her dress flew up and her butt was out for my entire family to see. People are still laughing about it. I sadly was not there to see it 🙁

Apparently people were so hungover the next morning they were having trouble toasting bagels at the hotel, LOL. But everyone kept telling my mom that despite the hangover, they had a great time. Noone got out of hand, but they really loosened up and danced all night. I dont think people would have danced that much without the booze.

welllllllll do I have a story for you. I attended a wedding last summer with my Fiance. My best friend had just started dating my Fiance best friend. She must of been nervous to meet their large group of friends for the first time so she got hammmed.

During the bouquet toss (she must of really wanted that bouquet) she hip checked one girl to get to the flowers. In the end she ended up with the top of flowers the girl who rightfully caught the flowers ended up with just the stems. The girl who got hip check? O yeah she hit the floor…..face first… and knocked out her two front teeth! no joke!

Omg…I can’t wait til my weddings next year (one here, on in Greece). 

Here’s why:  my FH is Greek, and as everyone knows, Greeks know how to party.  and party.  and party.  and drink.  When I was growing up, the only weddings I attended were Greek, so I grew up thinking what I’m about to tell you is normal.

(background info—my FH was my neighbor/brother’s best friend growing up, and his niece was my best friend growing up…so we’ve known each other since I’ve been a baby, and his family has always been like my family)

When I was about 6, my FH’s cousin got married.  The wedding had a live bouzukia player (Greek guitarist) and it is custom for everyone to bring cash and throw wads of money on the dance floor (eventually that turns into the tip for the musician).  So there was litterally a large mound of dollars on the dance floor that had to keep getting shoved to the side periodically.  There were those huge circle dances, and then, well, after the ouzo kept flowing like a waterfall, well, plates started getting broken, and then I turn around, and some old dude is literally lighting his tie on fire—while he’s wearing it.  At my FH’s other cousin’s wedding, ouzo flowed again, dollars went flying, and my FH (21 at the time, and I was 15) got up on a table and started doing traditional Greek dances (he’s kind of a shy, quiet guy normally).  I took a picture of this (had a crush on him even back then).  His cousin ripped of his shirt and joined him, and the place got completely trashed. 

Weddings in Greece, I hear, go on all night…usually at least til dawn the next day, but sometimes for 2 days (at least it used to be the case).  They say people who drink too much ouzo get thrown in the sea to sober them up a bit.  lol

I love my soon-to-be Greek Family. 🙂  Can only imagine what will happen at our wedding.

I have a tip that has worked for me since college: before a night of drinking (or day drinking, whichever you prefer Tongue Out) take some vitamin B12 to prevent a hangover!

Next morning my hubby looks at his father and says, “you look like you fell down a set of stairs. “reply, “I might have”

Next morning my uncle is sitting out on his balcony in a half awake coma. He can barely speak his voice is so hoarse. Me: how many martinis did you drink last night?”

My uncle: ” IDK, I lost count at 10. “

Me: “how are you still alive?”

I went to a wedding last year where the bride was doing kegstands. That was pretty awesome. All mine and FI’s friends and family are big drinkers, so our wedding will definitely be a “drinking wedding.”

And one of my best friends is getting married this weekend… all our college friends will be together for the first time in many years, so I’m predicting it gets a little wild.

So I’ve got 2 from weddings I’ve attended:

On one side of my family there is this crazy tradition where the guys (we’re talking 45 year old white guys) get drunk and do really bad breakdancing. It’s hysterical and everyone gathers around in a circle and it’s awesome. Well, at a cousin’s wedding one of the older ladies from the other side of the family decided that she wanted to join in. I think she was trying to slide across the floor but she basically did a belly flop onto the middle of the dance floor. Then proceeded to roll over onto her back and stick her arms and legs in the air and wave them around like a turtle on it’s shell. It was hysterical. As was the apologetic voicemail she left for the groom at 2 AM. Which he played on speaker phone for everyone at brunch the next morning.

I worked as a wedding coordinator at my church and we have a wedding where the bridesmaids had mimosas while getting ready and the maid of honor had so many she literally couldn’t walk down the aisle. They had to change plans and have the groomsmen walk the girls down the aisle so that the man of honor could hold her up!

This is a story Fiance told me. Years ago he was a groomsman in a friend’s wedding. Apparently the groom’s mom drank quite a bit at her son’s wedding. Near the end of the wedding, she decided it’d be fun to slide down the banister in her gown. She ended up falling off the banister and knocked herself out.The groom, who didn’t have a good relationship with his mom’s current boyfriend, yelled “You killed my mom!” Luckily she ended up being okay, but they had to call an ambulance and the groom and mom’s boyfriend spent the night arguing with each other, all because his mom decided she wanted to slide down the banister. To me, that sounds like a horror story but Fiance claims it was pretty funny and def unforgettable, lol.

My  husband is the airforce and his section have this little tradition where when “Eagle Rock” comes on in the reception, everyone but the men clear off the dance floor and they group around in a big circle,  and drop their pants for pants down dancing. The first wedding we went to as a couple I was horrified, I thought he must have gotten really drunk and I somehow didn’t notice and was trying to put his pants back on him. At our wedding, i knew what to expect and when the song started the RAAFies got up, dropped their pants and started dancing. Our family and family friends were like – WTF? …….then they all (including my dad and FIL!) dropped their pants and joined in!
