a couple who spoke their vows so low no one could hear them. i think it was supposed to be sexy but it came across as annoying. why were we there if we couldn’t hear the vows!!

Hmm, I don’t recall ever being to a wedding that I thought sucked.  There were some that weren’t necessarily ideal.  Like last year, I went to an outdoor wedding and the ceremony site was already set up for the reception…so we sat at the tables during the whole ceremony.  It was kinda strange… We could see the ceremony from where we were sitting, but we could barely hear any of it. Undecided

i went to one that the dj seemed more focused on children. they had lots of games with just the kids, and even gave away money as prizes. i felt like i was at a bar mitzvah.

Ok I’ll bite … the worst thing was actually a cocktail hour that lasted FOREVER and was really weird with no seating, very uncomfortable in high heels … didn’t really know anyone and now I hate all cocktail hours =)

I’ve only been to 2 weddings though … so maybe I’ll get over that hate?

Long, boring ceremonies, ESPECIALLY if we have to stand during them and/or there is no amplification and you can’t hear anything!!

I went to a wedding this summer that had a very generic ceremony with a long, preachy sermon. They had a pretty reception but there weren’t personal touches and it felt rushed. I didn’t feel much joy from the couple.

One wedding when I was little, at the reception the only people who had a table was the bridal party and immediate family. So everyone else had to stand around or sit on the floor.

The worst hands down was a wedding I went to where the bride did not smile ONCE. Seriously, she looked to uptight and concerned that something would go wrong. She rolled her eyes at her Fiance when he tried to be funny. She had a phony smile in any pictures and then pitched a fit at the end of the wedding because she wanted to go change.

Not one that I went to, but my friend’s cousin’s wedding was in a barn.  A barn can be a great venue, but it has to be cleaned and decorated properly…but this was a barn where they had just removed the animals the day before.  They hadn’t even bothered to put fresh hay in the barn! The food was left sitting in the barn without refrigeration for hours…and she said there were flies and other bugs crawling around on the cheese and salads.  The main course was make your own sandwiches with processed meat, and guests had to bring their own alcohol.  I’m all for smaller, less expensive weddings, but people still need to be tasteful, clean, and food-safe!

I went to a wedding on Saturday & the bride look disconnected and somewhat upset. She didn’t look the slightest bit happy throughout the entire ceremony.

I’m 99% sure her dad made a rude comment to her right before he walked her down the aisle (he’s that type) but still… I just felt so bad for her & her husband! It was really awkward.

The only one I remember that I disliked was one that had a 1 1/2 hour ceremony. Just too long.

@thecolorteale:  You had to sit on the floor????? wtheck?

@gothybride2b:  A wedding reception I went to last year was in an old mansion and guests were separated into three rooms because all could not be accommodated in one.  I thought it was very disjointed and confusing.  I dislike trying to cram a large amount of people into small spaces at any wedding.

I dont think people choose to have an hour or an half and a half long ceremony. My ceremony is going to be about an hour and a half because its a Mass…nothing I can do about it.

I feel bad because she’s my friend, but since it’s been over a year, hopefully she’s not reading wedding sites anymore..

So at this wedding, the cocktail hour was SUPER long, and all there was to eat was a small cup of pretzels per table. I know that pictures take awhile and appetizers can be expensive, but come on!! And then they did toasts before we could eat, even though the buffet had already been set up and everyone was drooling at the site and smell of the food.  So we all had to drink to all these toasts on empty tummies… NO FUN!
