19 Insane Brawls That Broke Out At Wedding Receptions

On the one hand, weddings are great. It’s always special when two people fall in love and want to tell all of their friends about it in a communal space and then feed them. But also – barring some massive wedding fail – if you’ve seen one wedding, you’ve seen them all. Sometimes you need a good wedding brawl to spice things up. Wedding fights are bound to happen in at least one-out-of-every-three receptions. Everyone is wearing uncomfortable clothes; they’re probably drunk; and more than likely, someone is regretting a huge life decision, and they want to punch away their frustration. The following wedding horror stories all feature some good, old-fashioned punch ups between brides, grooms, and the entire wedding party.

There are some instances where you’re more likely to see wedding reception fights than others. Is the bride’s ex-boyfriend in attendance? If so, you will be seeing a fight. Does the groom hate the bride’s mother? If so, a fight in wedding minute one is inevitable. The wedding fails that follow aren’t simply wedding scuffles; they’re knock-down, drag-out, neck-stabbing wedding brawls that people were lucky to survive. If you’re gearing up for wedding season, make sure you read this as a what not to do before putting on your tux or bridesmaid dress.
