I haven’t had my day yet, but the most amazing wedding mishap I’ve ever heard happened to a friend of mine.

They had helium balloons, weighted down with basically lead weights. One of her BMs decided she would pick one up and twirl it around. It let go and smashed right into the brides forehead!

Paramedics were called, she was able to stay at her reception though.

She still hates that story 🙂

One of our groomsmen got really drunk and ended up wandering the halls of the hotel (a very formal, victorian inn) in his UNDERWEAR and cussing at the staff!  I apologized to them and gave them a bunch of the wedding cake and cookies to take home but yeah that was embarrassing.

I went to a bridal boutique and I told them what I liked and what I didn’t like: No lace, minimal bling. So I try on a couple of dresses, very pretty. Then the consultant I had asked me to try on another one. It was covered in lace-y stuff head to toe. I told her I didn’t really think I would like it, but because she wanted to me to try it on so bad, I did. The dress was about 4 sizes too small! It needed to be pulled down about 3 more inches, but she put me in it anyways and tighten the corset like they do in the movies! I came out into the middle of the store (on a Saturday), and the girls I brought with me (mom, sister, moh) DIED LAUGHING!!!! I couldn’t breathe and the way my mom explains it – I had a plumbers crack all the way up my back to the middle of my shoulders! Then I find out that the dress is my consultant’s favorite, oh and my consultant was the owner’s daughter. It was funny at the time, but the story is pretty embarrassing when my mom tells it!

Mine’s not too bad, but after our ceremony when we were doing family pictures, Darling Husband leans over and whispers: “I think we may have to re-do the groomsman photos. I went to the bathroom right before and I left my fly open.” The look on his face was priceless! He looked sooo sheepish.

We talked to our photographer, and she said she would just photoshop it closed if the photos need it :).

@sunshine_kar: He felt awful! He thought I was going to be mad at him or something, but I couldn’t stop laughing. I’m not sure which response is worse…lol.

I wore some flats (not special flats, just some gold Michael Kors flats that I’ve had for a bit) and I had to take them off right after the first look because they chose that day of all days to give me a blister. I spend the rest of the day barefoot- ceremony, reception… the whole bit!

We set-up the sound system, which was huge speakers and whatnot from my now DH’s band, but neglected to have the mic on the gazebo with us for the ceremony.  So we had wonderful pre-ceremony music, an amazing “walking down the aisle” song and then- silence.  As soon as the officiant started talking, he whispers, “I don’t think they can hear me.”  We carried on with the entire ceremony, which included some beautiful, heartfelt vows from my Darling Husband to our children, but not one person other than me and the officiant could hear a word.  My bf told me afterward that she had leaned over to her husband during, and said, “Awww, this is like watching a beautiful silent movie…”

At my first wedding, years ago, (this is my 2nd time around) I nearly caught my veil on fire. I had this big poofy veil, and we did a Unity Candle lighting, Right after lighting the candle, we turned to go back up to the alter and I heard this collective loud gasp from everyone in the church. I just kept moving up to the alter, but for the rest of the ceremony I thought maybe the back of my dress had split open or something, I wasn’t sure what happened. As soon as we got down the aisle, I cornered my sister and she told me my veil had gone right up to the flame and singed. Luckilly it went right out. I looked at the edge of my veil and sure enough there was a little burn spot on the edge.

I have been at other weddings that had embarassing moments. One of my best friends fainted at her wedding. She had a super bad case of the flu, and really should have cancelled. She was a trooper though. She finished the ceremony sitting in a folding chair and then at the reception, they did a fast first dance and cake cutting and she was gone. I always felt bad about that for her.
