I know these threads pop up every once in awhile, but I’m morbidly curious about these sorts of things – what went wrong during your wedding? What have you seen go wrong at someone else’s wedding?
I was flipping through our wedding pictures and it reminded me that our cake fell apart. We had a cupcake tower with a small cake on top. The florist put together a quick topper (not a priority for me). Apparently it was pretty heavy, and by the time our photogs got there to take pictures, the little cake was precariously leaning, seperated between the layers. The top half fell off soon after – the catering manager grabbed a friend of mine for a quick “How do we tell her? Is she the kind of person to freak out about this?” conference. I didn’t care – I was pretty entertained. My mother ended up turning the cake so you couldn’t see the messed up frosting, throwing away the top half of the cake and putting the topper on the bottom half. The pictures of us cutting said cake shows a much shorter cake, but otherwise you can’t really tell it’s unintentional. Either way it was delicious cake (champagne with a strawberry filling!)

@KatieColorado: The zipper on the back of my dress broke minutes before the wedding! That was about it, though.

@lanalnoco: Did they fix it or were you sewn in?

I have never seen anything go WRONG, per se, but I did go to a wedding last weekend where they had a 2 tier cake on every table, doubling as the wedding cake and the ceterpieces…and it wasn’t a big wedding, so only half or less of each cake was eaten. Such a waste. I found out later that the whole wedding was poorly planned and incredibly stressful for everyone, and lots of other things ‘went wrong’ but as a guest, I couldn’t tell!

I went to a wedding at someone’s house where the power went out shortly after half the food was heated for dinner. That was enough food anyway, so it wasn’t a big deal the rest wasn’t ready. It did mean no music though for quite awhile. Turns out, it was a major problem with the electrical panel, so a generator had to be brought in for the rest of the evening.
There were several other major things that went wrong that day, but that was the biggest thing. Have to say though, that wedding was tons of fun!

@KatieColorado: I had a corset put in over my zipper to make the dress tighter, so that saved me. We tucked back the panels that the zipper connected and tied me up… and safety pinned the dress from behind at the bottom of the zipper. A few moments of panic, but it was fine :o)

Ohhhh man. My FBIL/FSIL’s wedding had plenty of … “bloopers”. Crazy MOB (screamed she was going to kill and break the legs of the MOG, kill the bridesmaids, etc), hair and makeup was 45 minutes late to their hotel, outside ceremony was over 100 degrees, had several rsvp’d guests not show, took 30 minutes to bustle the dress (3 point overbustle no one had ever practiced), MOB took over the photo list and family photos got way out of hand…it was craycray. Still a beautiful wedding but lots of lessons learned!
