Nothing happened mt mine (thank goodness) but at my sister’s wedding the Maid/Matron of Honor lifted my sister’s dress up to sort out the underneath and when she pulled it back down we realised the makeup she had put on her tatoo to over it was now all over the back of her dress!!! The photographer got some wipes and took it in the bathroom and gave it a clean and thankfully it all came off.

My dad slipped on my cathedeal length veil after giving me away, and my head went backwards. He even said he was saying, “don’t step on the train, don’t step on the veil..” over and over in his head, but he got all emotional after walking me down the aisle and forgot. It was hilarious, though!

Ohhhh man. My FBIL/FSIL’s wedding had plenty of … “bloopers”. Crazy MOB (screamed she was going to kill and break the legs of the MOG, kill the bridesmaids, etc), hair and makeup was 45 minutes late to their hotel, outside ceremony was over 100 degrees, had several rsvp’d guests not show, took 30 minutes to bustle the dress (3 point overbustle no one had ever practiced), MOB took over the photo list and family photos got way out of hand…it was craycray. Still a beautiful wedding but lots of lessons learned!

At my sister in law’s wedding, a bumble bee landed on the ring bearer’s nose during the ceremony. He just stood there with his eyes crossed while the bride and all the bridesmaids tried not to laugh.

I cant think of any advice to give to keep this from happening but I thought it was a cute story to share and I want to bump this because Its a good thread!

I have a few!

– For one cousin’s wedding, she and her Fiance (now H) totally forgot to bring the marriage license to the city where the wedding would be – it was a couple hours away from their home.  They couldn’t get married without it.  Fortunately, one of the groomsmen’s girlfriends lived nearby and hadn’t left yet, so she got an apartment key from their super, and found the license (which was packed in a box since they were in the process of moving in together!)

– A fellow bridesmaid in a wedding didn’t realize that the baked stuffed shrimp at the Rehearsal Dinner had scallops (which she is allergic to).  We slept at the bride’s apartment that night, and at midnight she BOLTED to the bathroom and was sick all night.  Her Fiance had to pick her up, help her do her hair, makeup, and shower, because she was so incredibly weak.

There are more, but my post would turn into a novel.  My dad’s a minister, so he has all kinds of stories!

My 8 year old daughter fell down a flight of stairs (about 20) 10 minutes before she walked me down the aisle.. Thank god our wedding party was filled with EMT’s and life flight medics. She was ok just a little bump on her head. And my husbands ring didn’t fit

OMG thank goodness for quick thinking! We aren’t married yet so I don’t have any stories of our own but from looking at some friends pictures one thing I can add is be sure to bring bobby pins and extra hairspray and have a bridesmaid tuck up any loose hair from your updo partway through the night! I always see these adorable pictures of the bride and groom cutting their cake or doing the bouquet toss but the bride’s hairstyle is half falling out! I’m definitely packing extra bobby pins!

My best friend had a mermaid dress that was literally painted on her, I am surprised she could breath. Anyways, she had to take the entire thing off to go to the bathroom and I was in charge of helping her. Because the dress was altered to fit her so snug the zipper came unattached on from one of the sides during a bathroom run. We panicked for a bit but THANK GOODNESS her photographer had seen this happen a million times and was able to fix it. Lesson here: ALWAYS have a small sewing kit on you, just in case.

One wedding… the bride freaked out and halfway down the aisle she turned and ran the other way!  They ended up going through with the wedding, but she was panicking big time.  A mutual friend has told me that she’s bringing xanax to my wedding in case I start to get anxious.  This same friend is also bringing duct tape, paper towel, safety pins, wet naps… and other stuff as well that she’s found necessary after other weddings that she’s been to!


(The duct tape is something that I would highly recommend… it’s great for emergency repairs is someone rips a hem)
