Our bartender called off at 3 am the morning of the wedding! My fiance didn’t tell me this, and just found a replacement. During our ceremony, I glanced over at the bar & saw someone else behind the bar & thought WTF?

My son also got jealous during the father daughter dance, so I had to dance with my dad with my almost 40 lb son on my hip! Oh well, I just laughed it off.

the clasp on my dress broke off and i didnt realize until i was getting ready the day of the wedding. my dress was so heavy so i needed a clasp. It was no where to be found. My poor photographers were so patient and we were trying to think of anything to use. My mom yelled.. “go in my bra drawer!”..so we pulled out one of her bras, cut off the clasp of it and sewed it on my dress! My photogrpaher sewed it on!

It was so hilarious. It did take quite a while so we didnt get as many getting ready pictures.

Oh and teh bra was a maroon color! thank god it wasn’t see through! on our wedding night i showed my husband and he just burst out laughing

During our first dance, my DH almost ran me into a support beam.  We had learned a very very simple version of the foxtrot and he was leading and all the sudden just STOPPED and the whole reception burst out laughing.  We laughed too 🙂

We got married in a huge public city park that allows absolutely no cars inside unless a permit is obtained. One of the groomsmen was assigned the task of retrieving the car to take us from the ceremony to reception site.  We waited on the side street for 45 minutes wondering where [the hell] he was and what [the hell] was taking him so long.  Neither of us had our phones to call him.  

Our reception had started when we decided to try to track down a stranger to call us a cab.  Hubs is running around when we see our car roll up in the middle of the park.  Groomsman had evaded park officials and made it his mission to get to us inside the park because he didn’t know any other way.

Park officials eventaully caught up to him.  Hubs had to explain what happened (our fault bc groomsman was from out of town and didn’t know better) and park officials were kind enough to let us off the hook.  

We were definitely late to the reception, but laughed about it later.  Groomsman was really apologetic.

My dress was all tulle on the bottom, and we had our wedding outdoors in June. What that amounts to is that DOZENS of bugs got trapped in between the tulle layers of my skirt! It was super gross and I had to keep fluffing my skirt to empty it out after I walked anywhere in the grass. My photographers had to tell me to quit messing with because you can’t see it in pictures anyway, but it’s kind of hard when there are daddy long legs crawliing up towards you!

So, my SIL’s boyfriend is really into cars, and hooked DH and myself up with a 1960’s red convertable for our wedding – we were so stoked! Yet the problem with old cars is well, they are old. After the ceremony we got in the car and and SIL’s boyfriend tried to start it, but the engine would NOT turn over! After about 5 minutes about 6 guys decided to try and push the car to see if they could get it to start: 

…They pushed us about a good two or three blocks. I could not stop laughing!

We planned the wedding for about 3-4 months prior, sent out invitations, delivered some by hand, and basically had a do-it-yourself wedding. Very nice. However the reception, we were late changing our clothes since it was blistering hot outside. When we walked into the reception where we were expecting 70-150 people that told us they would be there with their families, only 26 people showed, that was including the bride, groom, and wedding party. If we would have known that we would have eloped and saved the money spent on the hall, the huge cake, DJ, etc. But at least we know who our true friends and family are.

Hmm I can’t think of that much that went wrong. My husband’s sisters walked down the aisle without their bouquets so my sister went without hers too. My hair was a little messed up in the back during the ceremony. That morning I left the house with everything except my engagement ring! (But we got it.) 

This wasn’t really a mess up, but more just a disappointment, I forgot the love letter my husband gave me in the bridal suite and by the time we got back they had cleaned the room and it was gone.

I love hearing that weddings don’t go completely according to plan. Mishaps like these make weddings so much more fun and memorable.
