After we heard about the Bride who requested that her Bridesmaids fork out for her $10,000 Marchesa Wedding gown, we didn’t think the Bridezilla stories could get any worse.
We were wrong.
A Reddit thread was created that asked users to submit their craziest Wedding horror stories and you have to read them to believe them!
1. Late and Drunk AF
“I had one horrific couple that didn’t care about anyone. The groom was 30 minutes late for the ceremony, but it was no big deal, because the bride was two hours late. After the ceremony, we had to shorten cocktails to make up for lost time. The couple got wasted in their limo, and both ended up falling asleep. They were both so late for their own reception that I had the venue serve dinner without them. Their parents were furious. The brides parents left early, and the couple didn’t arrive until 11 at night. Half of their guests left before they arrived, and they yelled at me for allowing dinner to start before their arrival. (This was a 400 guest wedding)” – Toronto_Planner
“I had a really high strung groom who yelled at a one of his young guests (the kid was 12) for sitting out of his assigned seat, and told the kid and his parents to leave. Later at night, the brides father (who was single) made out with one of the bridesmaids, and the groom punched him. We had to call an ambulance, and the groom was arrested.” — Toronto_Planner
3. The Wedding is Off
Another story I have is I’m booking a wedding at my store. Young couple comes in and is picking stuff out. As usual the guy is pretty i don’t care about things. Brides are never happy about this attitude.
We go through for a bit, but when it comes to picking vest styles they get into a huge argument right in front of me and my colleague. Eventually the Groom throws up his hands and says “if we can’t decide what Colors then we just shouldn’t get married!” And walks out the door and leaves in his car.
The girl starts crying in our store while we are just bewildered. My colleague asked if she was ok. She said she was having someone come pick her up and walked out the door crying.
Never saw them again. Hands down a famous story in our store. – Tywy90
4. Awkward Speeches
A childhood friend of the groom stood up and held a speech about how the groom would never beat his new wife or his children.
The groom has no history of domestic abuse or being a violent person whatsoever. It was really weird and so embarrassing. The couple were mortified. – danceswithhousecats
5. The Cheater
Two of my friends got married. The groom cheated on his bride quite often, including the night before the wedding. An anonymous text was sent out and spilled the beans to the bride. A fight ensued, but the wedding continued as planned. Also, the girl that did the bride’s makeup for the wedding…well, that was the girl who had been sleeping with the groom. I have never witnessed a more awkward situation in my life. – ball_in_uh_cup
6. Gay Old Time?
My mom toasting the groom… (not me, thankfully) and saying how thankful she was to have the bride come into his life, thereby removing any questions about the groom’s sexual orientation.
Booze may have been a factor.
No way in hell did that women get within 10 paces of the microphone at MY wedding. – Daybreak74
7. Kids Don’t Mix
Well this happened yesterday afternoon at my cousin’s wedding. All was going well until my 5 year old cousin, the ring bearer, takes the cushion with the ring on it and spins it above his head, throwing it at the flower girl, my 4 year old cousin who had been making faces at him– leaving the bride’s ring nowhere to be found. It took all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen a good while of crawling around on their knees to recover it. – syowangza
8. Puppy Love
Family dog was the ring bearer. The ring bearer took a sh*t on the way down the aisle. – jackwithnoname
9. The Crazy MIL
My MIL is crazy. Her favourite thing to do is make people deeply uncomfortable, and hardly anyone talks to her for that.
Anyhow, her one daughter had an outdoor wedding the summer when West Nile virus was all over the news. So, to get attention, she threw a giant fit, and showed up to the wedding wearing a pith helmet she had brought back from Australia, in camouflage, with mosquito netting, and refused to take it off. She is in all the wedding photos like this, the mother of the bride, looking entirely pleased with herself. – Anonymous
10. Photo Fight
Friend is a photographer. Does weddings. Got punched in the face by the groom because the groom decided that the photographer was “taking too many photos of the bride.” – bannedfromalamo
