People Describe The Worst Thing They Have Ever Seen At A Wedding

They kept their mouths shut during the ceremony, but these guests just needed to share their stories from the worst weddings ever. From bridal brawls to a tacky wedding theme, the worst things seen at weddings crashed into these ceremonies harder than Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, leaving behind memories more eternal than any photo album. Conga lines, adorable flower girls, and open bars might be the draws of a wedding, but drunken toasts, wedding crashers, and fainting family members are the hallmarks of a wedding worth remembering. Not even a slice of the fluffiest cake can sugarcoat awful moments from weddings, but they sure as hell try!

On the critical forum/echo chamber of Reddit, people describe the worst weddings they attended, which almost makes up for the fact that you never got an invite. Almost.

  • Let's Party!


    "Bride never showed up.

    "My cousin was the groom and had about 500 people in attendance. He got on the mic and said there's no bride, so we had the party anyway. He married someone else two years later."

  • Confetti Always Makes A Mess

    From theorangepanda99:

    "There was like an eight-year-old boy who had loads of confetti in his hand so I didn't think much of it. Turns out he thought it was sugar paper and ate all of it and proceeded to projectile vomit everywhere through the middle of the ceremony.

    Was one of the funniest and most disgusting moments of my life."

  • Put A Ring On It

    From jlmccuan:

    "After arriving 45 minutes after the ceremony was to begin, during the ring exchange, the groom gets this blank look and says he didn't know he was supposed to buy her another ring. Sister-in-law slipped off her wedding band and handed it off to the preacher."

  • Benched

    From MangeStrusic:

    "There was this guy outside of the hotel walking up to groups of people in the smoking area, asking how much each person weighed. He was very overweight himself, and his jeans looked to be on inside out. He was severely underdressed for the occasion, and no one seemed to know him.

    "Anyways, he would ask a person's weight, and then exclaim 'I can bench that!'. Until one guy (I think he was a family member of the bride) got into an argument with him and started asking around if anyone knew this person, figuring that he was a wedding crasher. That's when this gentleman decided to cut a deal with everyone. 'If I can pick up that bench with my bare hands, can I stay for the party?' To which everyone agrees, because the bench was clearly bolted to the ground.

    "So, he walked over, put his hands on the bench, crouched down, and with all of his might, sh*t his pants in front of everyone. He stood up and waddled off through the parking lot to never be seen again. I did hear throughout the night people talking about a guy who was on shrooms outside, trying to lift a bench. So, I guess he was also tripping balls."
