Did anything happen during your ceremony or reception that made for a good laugh? Whether it was funny at the time or only funny after.. I would love to hear some stories!
2 things occured during our ceremony that I didn’t realize until afterwards when I was told by my mom (because I hadn’t walked down the aisle yet)
- Our Ring Bearer was making funny faces and kicking my husband in the shins lol apparently it made all the guests laugh!
- There was a cat sitting in the middle of the aisle before i walked and the staff at our venue was in the background going “Here kitty kitty kitty”. I attached a picture of the cat that one of our guests snapped!

That looks just like my cat, Abby!!
And how funny about your Ring Bearer kicking your husbands shins!
(I’m not married yet so I can’t really answer your question.)

Our officiant called my husband my “wife” during the vows, prompting this reaction:
And I couldn’t get my husband’s ring over his knuckle:

we got married at the aquarium and we were allowed behind the scenes because that’s where they have wedding parties wait before the ceremony starts. well there were big lockers full of wetsuits in the bathrooms back there which the aquarium staff use for dive shows and such. my sister (MOH) and the best man (who hit it off for the whole weekend and actually hooked up that night LOL, but that’s another funny story) went back there towards the end of the night and came out busting onto the dancefloor in wetsuits! it was a hit and everyone was dying laughing, they were a riot! unfortunately our photographers left by then, but we still got s few good pics….

There were a couple of funny thing with ours.
1) My Mother-In-Law kept going on and on during planning about the amazing sale she had found for white votives for our centerpieces. When our wedding party (many of whom are Jewish and speak Hebrew) was helping us set up the night before, they kept whispering and wouldn’t tell me what was going on. Eventually, they let it out: the white candles she bought were Jewish funeral candles!
2) During our first kiss, my lip must have slid a little on Mr. Library’s face, so I went to wipe the lip gloss off. The photographer got these photos:

it was dramatic at the time but we almost didn’t get our marriage license!
We got up early to get to the marriage bureau when it opened at 8am, where we were told that we needed our SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS to get a marriage license in North Carolina! This prompted a whole day of drama but we finally got our various employers to email us copies of our W2s to prove our social security numbers and every thing was rosy – the guy at the records bureau had actually gone to high school with myhusband’s brother and was really nice about the whole mess.
I made the mistake of not getting a bustle for my dress, and then proceeded to stomp all over my short train during our first dance, prompting my sister to get this pic!

Love the wetsuits.
For our wedding day, I tried to put the ring on his right hand even though he handed me the left. I had to stand in front of him to figure out my left from right and his phone rang during the ceremony. He had it on because our officiant was 45 minutes late and he forgot to turn it off.

I don’t have any funny stories for our American wedding, but our Indian wedding was pretty comical at times. (Last November)
There was a brief power outage during the ceremony so we were in the dark for about 30 seconds.
Then, the pundit actually answered his cell phone during our ceremony and talked to whomever for about 20 seconds! Here is the pundit, below on the left.

The entire process, our minister tried to get us to let him sing. We didn’t have traditional wedding music and already had 3 readings planned, so we politely declined – numerous times. Well, right before we lined up to go outside, he cornered me to let me know he would be singing the Irish blessing. Since I was about to walk down the aisle, I let it slide figuring what the heck. Well, I clearly didn’t hve time to tell my husband, so when the minister started to belt out the blessing, my husband was shocked! The look on his face was awesome. To top it all off, he could see my sisters over my shoulder laughing thier butts off, which only made him want to crack up. My dad now calls our minister Father Wayne Newton.
My husband tried to put my bands on the wrong hand. He saw my e-ring on my right hand, so he just figured the bands went there too.
During the ceremony, our minister was talking about how we should always try to remain “child like” not “childish” and then said something about throwing fits. My entire side of the guests started to laugh because I’m known for throwing fits (when I was little anyway). My husbands side, who only sees me on my best behavior didn’t get the joke.

Right before my ceremony my great aunt gave me a hankercheif, I didn’t have a pocket or any place to put it before the ceremony so I just shoved it down into the top of my dress. It was completely unnoticeable…but still don’t know what I was thinking. Anyway during the ceremony I started to tear up and a few people under the Chuppah said they had a tissue but I thought quick reached down the front of my dress and pulled out the hankercheif. It was almost like it was meant to be. Everyone under the chuppah cracked up laughing including the Rabbi. My husband asked me the rest of the night what else I was hiding down there…
