In 1 wedding, 3 fights broke out. I witnessed 2 and the aftermath of the 3rd (a guy had taken off his shoe to smack one of the bridesmaids).

Fiance and I went to a wedding about 2 years ago for his friend, it was on a boat so we were stuck at sea for 4 hours.

The strangest thing was the brides facial expressions, or lack of. She was smiling like giant forced smile, it was weird. Her groom was pouring his heart out, sobbing, thanking god for sending her to him and she just had this gigantic smile, like she wasn’t even listening…… he then cried loudly and she rolled her eyes. 


So weird. 


Then there was a fight and someone sprayed champagne on the bridesmaids and their tattoo cover-up ran, and dripped on their dresses.

I was Maid/Matron of Honor. We carried Build A Bear teddies with little suits. The bride carried 2 bears. I got to hold all three during the ceremony. The pastor during the rehearsal didn’t remember their names correctly. The bride had no idea what pictures she wanted, and wasn’t cooperative with the photog. Neither the bride nor groom really looked like they wanted to be there. Bride never signed a contract or ordered a cake until the week before (during wedding season) and got pissy that “no one wanted to work with” her. 

The couple was in their mid to late twenties, had over a year of planning, and the bears didn’t have any particular meaning.

Oh, was at a wedding where the exit song from the ceremony was an instrumental version of Phantom of the Opera’s Past the Point of No Return. 


It was my wedding. Hubs and I thought it was hilarious. My aunt was laughing so hard she cried. My mother was pissed. Most everyone else was slightly confused, but no one questioned it.

I have only been to two weddings, one only had waltz dancing. In a strange way, watching the bride and groom waltz together made me feel uncomfortable, almost like a voyeur, because it was such an intimate moment between them.

lauralaura123 :  More of… paaaaaaaaaaaast the point of nooooooo return, no backwards glaaaaaacnessss! No use resissstinggggg!

It’s a really dark sounding song, and probably not super appropriate for a wedding, considering the Phantom during the song is attempting to lure Christine into his lair for creepy sexy times after forcing the theatre to play his opera… 

I really love Phantom of the Opera. Lol. We also played the actual version of All I Ask of You during the reception.

I went to a wedding where the bride and groom did the chicken dance as thier first dance, it was sooo cringy. The same wedding they had a singer come in part way through the reception and sing a few very awful sounding songs (she really wasn’t a good singer AT ALL), we later found out this singer was the grooms ex-wife who they apparently had a terrible relationship with…so weird lol

I’ve seen some really weird song choices for the special dances. Like, weird even by my standards.

I attended a wedding where the ceremony was fashioned into a three act play complete with costume changes – weird but not as boring as you might imagine.  I’ve seen a bride come in on an atv and a bride come in on a white horse.  Oh and one ceremony where the bride and groom were on a sort of island in a pond and guests had to stand all around the pond in the mud.

Mine isn’t as weird as most, but one wedding the priest’s sermon during the ceremony was entirely about his faith journey from Protestantism to Catholicism. Nothing regarding love, marriage, union, the couple, etc. We kept thinking he’d eventlually tie that in with the wedding, but he didn’t.

Not me, but a coworker went to a wedding where they had a friend who was an artist paint the reception, and then presented them with the finished product as their wedding gift.
