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.
"The sister of the bride who wasn't invited showed up drunk and got in a fight with the bride until the father of the bride broke it up by putting the sister in a chokehold and dragging her out of the venue. The bride was surprisingly fine afterwards."
The Best Man With The Worst Speech
"I worked weddings for a living and once saw the best man get loaded, give a speech, and profess his love of the bride and how they had slept together two nights before. The reception went on as any normal wedding, just without the bride and groom, or the best man. Maybe he was going for round two...
"Open bar: 1, best man: 0."
Your Wedding Is Never About YOU
"My mother-in-law handed out an EP of my now sister-in-law to as many guests as she could and threw a fit in the middle of the dance floor later that night because I didn't let her daughter sing with the band or karaoke. Her exact words were, 'How dare you make today all about you.'
"It was MY wedding day."
Her Vows Should Just Be Silence
"Not a bad thing that happened for me, just really awkward. Went to wedding of someone from my church a few years back. When it came time to say the vows, he pulls out a sheet of paper and reads on for like five minutes, getting really intimate and pouring his heart out to her. It was kind of awkward to be honest. But the icing on the cake was her response. When he was done, she just giggled loudly and awkwardly and got out 'Ditto!'
"That's it. That was her wedding vow. So freaking awkward."
