I just finished watching a wedding show where the bride was an HOUR late to her own wedding.
In the show, the wedding chapel director had just told the groom that it was too late! He was walking up to the guests to tell them that the wedding was cancelled, when the bride finally showed up. I was stressing out for him. hahaha
I am so anal about time… I hope nothing happens on our big day that prevents me or my future hubby from being on time.
Married bees, were you late to your wedding? What happened that day?

No…and I was shocked! Our make up lady talked an extra Bridesmaid or Best Man into getting her make up done. By the time we got to the location, it was 12:45 and I had 15 minuets before my walk! I was dressed and ready to go in 10…then we were just waiting on the boys. = )

@His Barista: Perfect timing 🙂 Glad to hear everything went smoothly!

@MSomar: It was my own fault because the same person did hair and make-up for like 8 different people. Yeah we started VERY early in the morning, but if I could go back I’d have one person for hair and one for make-up.

No, but I was late to pretty much everything else that day. Late to the hair appointment, late to start pictures, etc. But for the ceremony, I was right on time 🙂

Nope. Our ceremony was set to start at 2:30. I had my dad check his watch before we took our first steps down the aisle, and it was 2:31!

We weren’t late to the venue (We arrived about 30 min before walk time) but we didn’t start on time to allow for the late people. I think we started about 15 min late thanks to them.

I have no idea! I didn’t have a clock on me but I think we were pretty close to on time…

i think it was Noelle ine one of the early bridezilla shows that was about 40mins late for the wedding and there was a wedding booked after her and then she had an attitude because the priest cut alot out of the ceremony due to time lost – i felt like smacking her over entitlement
anyway no i wasnt late for the ceremony, im rarely late for anything and find it rude but i totally understand how things happen on the wedding day and being 5mins late is acceptable considering the logistics and its a wedding

I voted “no.” But I think you need an option that says “No, and I was surprised to actually be on time for once!”

I was early. I was the first one to the church (and my sister who drove me). Before the Priest. Before the photographer. Before my parents.
It kinda sucked for a bit cause I just hung out feeling a little lonely.

I was watching Four Weddings blunders show last night and they had a bride who was so late to her wedding all of the guests had to leave the ceremony area and be moved to a smaller area only to have to wait again for a funeral to be over with. That would drive me INSANE as a guest.

I don’t think I’ve ever gone to a wedding where it started more than 10-15 minutes after the stated time. We were on time, maybe 2 minutes behind, not sure, I didn’t have a watch and no ones watch agreed but 2 minutes I count as on time. My husband and I are usually not so punctual.

I’m anal about time too, but on my wedding day I decided not to stress about anything. I don’t even know why we were late, we were both there, we did the ketubah signing and were ready to get married but they had us sitting in a room for a while. Like I said though, I just didn’t want to stress out, and at that time I didn’t care.

I went to a wedding once that started almost 90 minutes late and it was outside and hot. They are now divorced.
