People Who Witnessed Interrupted Weddings Describe The Experience

List RulesVote up the wildest ways a wedding was interrupted.

Weddings rarely go off without a hitch, but interruptions or full-on objections to wedding vows feel like a once-in-a-lifetime-movie moment. For one reason or another - intentionally or accidentally - people have interrupted marriage vows in ways the guests will never forget, especially if the videographer caught it on camera.

Maybe the best man comes forward about the groom's indiscretions or someone in the front row experiences loud bowel movements. Not all wedding interruptions are awful wedding experiences, but they certainly shift people's expectations of how their special day will unfold.

Redditors at interrupted weddings never expected to witness such spectacles, but these moments have now become immortalized by their comments (and potentially by the videographer).

    Neighbors You Want To Know

    From Redditor /u/MiyaxKapugen:

    When my neighbors got married, they had a semi-pirate-themed wedding on a tall ship anchored in the harbor. They had met in fencing class and are also some of the most eccentric people I’ve ever met.

    When the officiant asked the question, one of their fencing buddies stood up and yelled that the bride deserved better, and the groom was nothing but a swashbuckling good-for-nothing. So the groom challenged him to a duel; they fenced their way up the aisle; and the groom threw him over the edge of the boat.

    They’ve been just as entertaining to live next door to ever since.

    There Goes The Bride

    From Redditor /u/JackB159:

    Heard this from my Dad, a former C of E (Church of England) priest:

    Dad: "Anyone who knows a reason why these two should not be married should speak now or forever hold their peac-"

    Bride: "Yeah I do. He was in bed with my bridesmaid last night," slaps groom, walks back down aisle.

    Dad:"...well I think obviously we can’t continue. Thank you all for coming."

    Bumming It

    From Redditor /u/Alleric:

    She and I had been dating since we were 13. I had gone overseas as a military contractor, and when I returned, I asked her to marry me. We spent a year planning everything.

    On the day of the wedding when asked if anyone objected, a guy stood up. My would-be wife told him to sit back down, and he proclaimed loud enough for everyone to hear that he had been with her the entire time I was away, [which included] the time we were planning the wedding.

    She then broke down and confessed that the only reason she was marrying me was that he had gotten her pregnant, and he was a bum whereas I at least had a job.

    Left her, met a nice girl through work, and am now happily married. I see her around sometimes, miserable as hell with him following behind her like a whipped puppy.

    The Wind Between Your Vows

    From Redditor /u/Mamasus:

    Got married in a 200-year-old chapel. It had these tremendously heavy doors behind the alter that in my lifetime of going to mass there, I'd never seen [them] opened. Just when the priest asked for objections, a gust of wind blew both sets of doors wide open.

    It took about six men to force them closed again. The priest just calmly looked up and said, "Okay. Okay. We hear you." Then he raised one eyebrow at the two of us. Wedding went on as planned, [but] marriage didn't.
