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.
