This thread was kind of inspired http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/honestly-would-you-care-if-someone-was-scantily-clad#axzz2pe9sThCL .. and it got me thinking,
What has been the tackiest, craziest, strangest, funniest, down right weirdest thing that you have seen at a wedding? Whether it be the bride and groom, the food, the music, all the way down to the guests.
Honestly, I havent really seen anything too crazy, other than a cousin of mine who’s dress was so short the whole place saw her butt every time she walked.. I mean, when she was sitting she was sitting on bare butt, because thats how short her dress was.
Another thing that I found odd was going to a wedding where there was no sweet table. For Greek weddings, that literally is unheard of. Instead they opted for french fries with feta cheese on them and sliders. SOO GOOD. Im all for greasy food when you’re drinking away but I was looking forward to some cake LOL.
Lets have a couple laughs, share your stories! 🙂

I don’t think this is tacky or strange because I’m used to it, but at all four of my cousin’s weddings (all brothers and sisters), their other side of the family does this thing where they have 1 person dress up as Uncle Sam. They play patriotic songs while Uncle Sam leads a “parade” of the rest of the guests who are all holding American flags and signing along. It was always funny to see this total look of shock on non-family member guests’ faces.

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding with a cash bar and a DJ that showed up in jeans and let his 4 year old son sing karaoke throughout the whole reception.

I don’t know if this counts, but we went to a beautiful wedding once that started at 8AM!! with a 6 hr gap between the ceremony and reception! FI and I went to take a nap.

@MsBark: yup, definitely seen the waaaay too short skirts at weddings (honestly, save it for clubbing!). I think the tackiest thing I’ve seen is at a wedding I went to last summer; during the first dance, the banquet hall had these teenage girls (who were also servers) kneel on the floor around the couple and arrange rose petals in the shape of a heart WHILE THEY WERE DANCING! Honestly, it was so awkward, unnecessary and distracting! What should have been a significant, intimate moment between the couple was ruined by these girls crawling around on the floor with rose petals. You couldn’t focus on the couple because you were trying to figure out what the girls were doing.

At the last wedding I attended, one of the groomsmen changed into a Waldo outfit halfway through the reception. It wasn’t a theme or anything, apparently he just really wanted to dress up as Waldo. Completely random but it made for some hilarious photos.

OMG! I’m laughing so hard at the kid doing karaoke. What a nightmare.

Not me, but a friend photographed a wedding that hired… amongst other things.. a little person dressed up as a leprechaun, a clown, etc. The leprechaun was also in the bride & groom photos.

A cousin of the bride wore a very scanadlous dress, then got really drunk. She later tackled the girl who caught the bouquet, an 11 year old.. and I mean TACKLED.

I saw someone get so drunk they threw up in the middle of the dance floor…

Tackiest thing I have seen is someone grabbing multiple drinks from the bar to “stock up” for bar close (had to close prior to end of reception, venue rule) She had 4 drinks on our table, and 5 more stashed with her mom. She was also ridiculously drunk by the time she got to our table and stated, infront of children, she “didn’t want to eat, because she built up a buzz and didn’t want food to kill it.” I am still not impressed.

We were at a friend’s wedding where the bride was grinding up on everybody there. Except the groom. I think the only time she danced with her new husband was their first dance. After that she would grab other guys by their ties so she could dance with them or run around spanking her photographer’s butt. I can understand wanting to have a good time on your wedding night but she was just so sloppy drunk and really embarrassing herself.

OH! I have another story!
So, there was a kissing game, where the guests had to kiss and then the bride and groom had to mimmick their kiss. Well, this couple literally ran from one end of the room to the other and the girl jumped on her bf and then started making out hardcore, to the point where the guy fell and they were on the floor and she was on top of him! OMG I was mortified!!!!!! Needless to say, the only thing the bride and groom mimmicked was the running to each other part. After the wedding the bride told me that she doesnt know why they were invited because she had no idea who they were, and neither did the groom! LOL!!!

The reception that was held in the church “party” room. My cousin (who does this sh!t all the time) whose wedding it was … forgot the room held 50 people and she invited, and they showed, over 300 people. Hot sweaty wedding in AUGUST in FLORIDA with no AC. oh and the marriage lasted less than a year, no thankyou notes and she claimed he stole all the gifts. Which was HYSTERICAL because on the next trip down there I saw the gift my parents gave her(a pretty unique statue symbolizing marriage)
After that I figured the Elvis impersonator at a friends wedding was amusing.
