how about the “here comes the bride” song start to play as your brides maid starts walking down the aisle!!! LOL that happened on my wedding day. Actually it wasnt too bad. I kinda freaked for a second but than realized it was almost time for me to walk! LOL I forgot about it until a few days later. 

**Alert, mood killer****A really bad thing that happened a few days before my wedding is that my grandmother (dad’s mom) passed away 🙁 A lot of that side of my family could not attend due to this. But my dad was able to walk me down the aisle. However, it made it difficult to celebrate… and we spent the entire day after our wedding at funeral and things. 🙁

Falling while you walk down the aisle. I am actually really really scared of doing so.

@little_cricket: This was one of my biggest fears along with not being able to speak during vows due to crying. That fear was so bad taht we decided that our Rabbi just read our Ketubah (our vows to each other). I didnt have to speak 🙂 YAY, and this was a good thing, belive me!

@bestbuddies: That totally happened at my wedding too! I had a momentary ‘oh no!’ but then I realized the worst part was I had no idea when I was supposed to start walking. (I was behind a bunch of trees so I couldn’t see where the bridesmaids were at.) I kept whispering “Now? Now? Should we go? Is someone going to say something?” at my dad. 

My photographer ended up motioning for us to start, haha.

I’m gonna be the downer here but I read the saddest article ever, I think in Cosmo or something, where the bride was getting dressed when she got a call from a hospital about her Fiance telling her to come there right away. The car he was in with his Groomsmen was hit by someone who ran a red light, and he was killed. Most definitely the worst thing that could ever possible happen – I totally cried and went and hugged Fiance forever and told him how careful he needed to be and made him promise that nothing would ever happen to him (totally realistic, I know). Kinda puts all the stuff we worry about going wrong into perspective.

I went to a wedding that was outdoors, on a really hot day. The Maid/Matron of Honor was the bride’s sister, and the MOH’s husband was one of the groomsmen. 

It was so hot we could see the sweat beading on all of the groomsmen’s foreheads as they stood up there in their tuxes. Just as the officiant was getting into the ceremony – BAM – the MOH’s husband fainted! And I mean full face forward bail. So the Maid/Matron of Honor had to tend to her husband and helped take him inside, along with her (and the bride’s) mom. The officiant was worried about how hot it was so she said they needed to keep going so as to not lose anyone else. So both the Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) and mom weren’t present for the vows!

But I have to say the bride handled it with total grace. Everything else went beautiful and she totally took it in stride.

@80sbee: Just putting things into perspective, even if things go wrong, the important thing is marrying the guy you love!

My venue had generators that allowed it to remain fully functional during a power outage – one of those things you hope you won’t need, but it’s good to have just in case!

If it rains.  Both my ceremony and reception is outdoors and the locations doesn’t have much of a back up plan.

Someone falling in the pool.  The cocktail hour is around a very deep pool.  I am having a bar set up around the ceremony so people can start drinking as soon as they get there.  Then after the ceremony they will proceed to the pool area for the official cocktail hour which they will have access to all night.  Just hoping no one gets drunk and falls in.
