SO, mine, although something that at first aggitated me, I always smile and laugh about.
First you have to know that the dressing room at the church is attached to a restroom. So, as my friend was doing my hair, a women ( not invited and who no one knew) came intot he restroom/dressing room. She proceeded to go tot he restroom and mind you it was not just doing a number 1. So the whole room was starting to get a little stinky. As she washed her hands and left she started talking and asking who the bride was and such about the wedding.
At first I was so aggitated, but it was a small comic relief to the nerves I had.
But, I have to say even funnier was when the pastor commented on sex in marriage and I was so worried by conservative grandpa would just die. I looked at him really quick and noticed that my grandpa was fast asleep. Haha.. Oh goodness… You gotta love family.

We had a sand ceremony, but I had no idea that the sand a friend collected for me was still kind of wet! It started sticking to the glass, I couldn’t get it out and was spilling onto the table instead of the vase. At one point my Maid/Matron of Honor gave me a stick to kind of scoop it out but it snapped! We laughed it off the entire time, and at the end Darling Husband poured some of his sand onto the table. Everyone thought the whole thing was endearing! Definitely my favorite part of the day!

From the ceremony:
My husband’s full name is pretty long (two middle names), and for the legal part of the ceremony our officiant had to state his full name, twice. The second time she stumbled over it, paused, looked accusingly at his parents, and said, “Too many names!” She got a good laugh from us and the guests for that.
From the reception:
My 99 year old great-aunt accidentally set her table’s bread basket on fire, and another of my older female relatives got totally smashed on wine and started hitting on progressively younger men on the dance floor.

My 92yr old “Crazy” Grandma was pretty mellow through out the wedding. While she decided to give a speech @ our wedding dinner. She proceeded to tell everyone my age and that I was lucky to finally find someone cause I was going to be too old to have children. Too Much Information, Grandma. Too Much Information. But the funniest is when she threatened my Darling Husband, if he doesn’t do right by me, by putting her cane around his neck. Everyone broke out in laughter. Now that’s the “Crazy” Grandma we LOVE.

My sister who was my Maid/Matron of Honor got a little tipsy and smashed a champagne glass on teh table right in front of me. She was making a joke and didn’t mean to smash it down that hard and was MORTIFIED once it happened. It didn’t hurt anyone and my wonderful venue cleaned it up so fast it’s like it didin’t even happen, but it’s definitely funny to look back on.
