- Wedding: April 2013 - Rhode Island
My friend’s ceremony was literally less than 5 minutes long. She walked down the aisle, they said “I do”, kissed, and that was it. I was like, “What happened to the ceremony??! It’s seriously over??”

I went to a Ceremony where the couple married themselves. I thought it was super weird that they did not have an Officiant, but they continously switched places back and forth and vowed their love. They even used the quote from Dr. Seuss about being wierd together. They truly fit the quote entirely.

My “bad ceremony” experience wasn’t nearly as bad as some of these, but we do still laugh about it. My cousin got married in 90 degree heat and we are sitting there with sweat just dripping off of us. The bride( not my cousin) has lots of international relations and someone from her side did a reading from “Winnie the Pooh”. I’m sure if it wasn’t 90 degrees it would have been very sweet, but just hearing “pooh” over and over again with a distinct accent was pretty hilarious. We were all sitting there trying not to look at each other and laugh at the numerous “pooh” references during a wedding ceremony. Again, I blame the heat!

I was really young and going to a wedding for my aunt, and i was the flowergirl… Outdoor wedding, I made it down the aisle, and then back to my mum, and promptly threw up in the grass.

A friend of mine was married in a Jewish ceremony, but not Orthodox. Normally the mother and father of the bride or groom walk their respective child to the alter, and then the M/F walk togethor in the recessional. In this case, their was a very nasty divorce, Dad had affair. The parents gracioulsy agreed to follow the Orthodox tradition, so as not to upset Other Woman/Stepmom, and that both mothers would walk togethor and both fathers during the recesional. This is comical. The SM wore her own wedding dress to the wedding (it was not a traditional wedding dress, but it was long and white). The father did not know this was going to happen, and saw the dress as he was walking his daughter, the bride up the aisle and had a fit. After the ceremony, the father disregarded, grabbed the mother (his ex-wife) and walked down the aisle with her. He stopped to hand his brother some money and said get a jacket or scarf for [name of his current wife]. Not many people saw what was going on, but I was fighting back laugher.

Unfortunately my bad wedding story is from a very close friend of mine – in fact, she’s one of my own bridesmaids and I made her wedding cake. They had been engaged over a year with not date in sight and finally decided to go for it and so planned their wedding in 3 weeks. Impressive, actually, and 95% of it was very lovely. The Groom’s father is a pastor and had always wanted to marry them, which they wanted as well. I hadn’t met the father before the wedding and so never realized how thick his accent was… whoa. On top of being incredibly difficult to understand, he forgot to tell people to sit so we stood for the whole rambling ceremony, his mic went in and out constantly and finally, when the mic was working at one point-during about the 4th prayer, I realized that the combination of age and his accent made him sound exactly like the priest in A Princess Bride. Marrwage…. Marrwage is wha keeps us togewwer toway… Took so much self control not to laugh… loudly. Needless to say, my head stayed down long after the prayer was over.

The worst wedding I’ve ever attended was my cousin’s wedding. His mother, who wasn’t invited, despised his then fiance. But she still showed up and made a scene. Cursed the bride out and fot her posse of friends to threaten to beat her up. My dad called the cops who had to escort my cousin and his wife to the reception. I felt terrible for them.

At my cousins wedding, one of the bridesmaids fainted in the middle of the ceremony because it was too hot during her garden wedding.
