Married Bees: What is the weirdest, rudest or craziest thing a guest said (or did) on your big day?
I don’t really get along so well with my grandpa… he is always saying weird, awkward or sometimes offensive things, but I can tolerate him most of the time.
It was my wedding day, I was all done up in my beautiful dress with my fancy makeup and hair and a huge grin on my face. My grandpa walks right up to me during the cocktail hour and says:
“Hey! You look so much better now that you’re bigger!”
I winced a little but let it slide, “Er, thanks Grandpa…”
And then, again I am NOT JOKING this is literally what he did, he puffed out his cheeks like he was a chubby chipmunk and said “Yeah you look way better like that!”
Then he walked away! I awkwardly wasn’t sure whether to laugh or cry lol! Luckily since I was having such an amazing day it didn’t really bother me, but seriously WHO SAYS THAT TO A BRIDE ON HER WEDDING DAY lol? He wasn’t being sarcastic at all, he actually thought that was a good compliment! Like I said, he’s always saying weird stuff like this, which is part of the reason he has trouble getting along with people.
In reality I had lost 30lbs since he last saw me… >_O

@DeathByDesign: I wrote this as its own post after my wedding because I was still so flabbergasted, but I had a family member from out of town approach me after the ceremony and tell me that they had decided to leave before the reception because they don’t get to the area often and wanted to go do touristy stuff to “make it worth The trip”.

My bridesmaid was in the waiting period with her boyfriend (now fiance.) So I guess she was having a bad day from that. Sooo, during the reception she walks by me stomping (literally) & with a sour face. Her boyfriend (now fiance) runs after her and says baby what is wrong & she points AT ME and says she knows! I HAD NO DAMN CLUE!
She later msged me on facebook & told me she was sorry for putting on a big show & acting the way she did towards me.
This past summer I went to my cousin in laws wedding & she did as well (since she is my uncle in law’s fiance.) & She put on a show there too & said she couldn’t be happy for anyone knowing she could never have that. (This was AFTER she got engaged so IDK why she did it then too.) :/

Wow, that is crazy. I am glad you didn’t let it get to you.
Mine wasn’t that crazy but I had an aunt and uncle (in their family they have 2 daughter one early 20s that came with her fiance and a 16 year old) that showed up with an extra person, never asked, never mentioned it before hand. You would think having to pick a meal on the RSVP would have been a heads up that it will be a plated meal and maybe they should have said something so the girl can have a meal and maybe a chair to sit on. And to top it off, I had never met this girl before. Luckily I gave my venue cordinator a heads up in passing and she got an extra chair at the table and took care of everything.
This part of my family seriously is lacking in manners so it doesn’t suprise me.

Oh btw, she does this with everything not just weddings. She does it when she joins us golfing, out to eat, anything. She always acts completely sour & just, IDK how to explain it. Everyone always says she ruins everyones good time. But I have known her long enough now to over look her & keep on having a good time! lol I guess its just who she is or how she is. (Shrugs.)

My Father-In-Law said, “I thought you were dieting for this”. A few weeks after the wedding he mentioned that he was glad to see that I had lost some pounds since the wedding. Ya he’s an asshole.

While I was getting ready, a guest texted me… She asked if she and her husband could bring their daughter (like 1 year old) because their babysitter fell through. Not a huge deal, but the only babies who were invited were family members…. Then the husband and baby never even showed up!
I had invited a couple who were close with my family… They rsvped yes. Instead of a husband and wife, I got a wife and her granddaughter (also a baby)… I probably wouldn’t have noticed except that I had asked the couple to be some of the people who came up on stage to pray for us – so the woman came up with the baby and was holding her and whispering to her the whole time! 🙂 So weird, but neither of these put a damper on the day at all!

@MrsRuby: Seriously why didn’t she just say she didn’t want to go rather than making up a really lame excuse?

Wow, some of these are just… wow!
I hope nothing like this happens to me on my wedding day. I am a very nice, sweet person. But, if someone says something rude to me I can snap. I don’t want to give everyone another reason to think I’m a Bridezilla!

So, this didn’t happen at my wedding, but some of the drama was carried over into mine…
At my cousin’s wedding in September, her uncle tried to beat up his daughter’s *sort of* ex-boyfriend, who was a friend of the bride. The dad was drunk, didn’t like that the guy had made an attempt to say hi to his daughter (she had run off crying, even though she had a current Boyfriend or Best Friend there with her? She’s a bit immature and that’s why it only lasted a couple months). Another guy managed to pull the dad away from the ex and send him on his way, to forget about it and move on.
So the drama continued into the next day where the bride’s brother (J) and his Girlfriend (A) were just talking about the drama that ensued the night before, not knowing that the girl’s sister was in earshot. She came at them, yelling that they were terrible to gossip about her dad and sister, that his friend (the ex) is an asshole, blah blah blah. She tells her Dad at the day after party, he confronts J, bitches him out about it all (again, calling J’s friend down) etc, but J was having nothing of it and gave it right back to him.
Everything resolved, the J’s uncle apologized, etc. Except for the daughter’s sister. They were all at my wedding (including the ex, since Darling Husband is friends with him), and apparently the sister was throwing terrible looks at J and A and they were very surprised she didn’t start screaming at them at several times during the night, since she was apparently VERY drunk. I only know all of this because Darling Husband and I are very close with J and A…
Thankfully, my cousin doesn’t know her uncle tried to kick the shit out of one of her friends at her wedding…
