    Okay, craziest wedding mishap would have to go to my friend who I'll leave anonymous for her prides sake. Lol. When it came time to read her vows, she started her off with a heartfelt "Kevin...." not her grooms name. Not. Even. Close.

    I was in my cousins wedding in November and it was SNOWING!! It was crazy windy and my dress kept flying up and we used umbrellas in one picture and all of our umbrellas flew inside out. so embarrassing!

    It was crazy that we got married on January 1, in Virginia, and the temperature was in the 70's.

    My husband's Uncle brought his estranged wife to my wedding and they got into a physical fight and the cops were called. It took a bunch of guests and my DJ to separate them. At least it all happened pretty fast, they left, and we were able to continue our celebration!

    My parents surprised my fiance and I with a beautiful ice sculpture with our names engraved! It was beautiful!

    The craziest and funniest thing that happened at my wedding was when we were at the alter in the church, I didn't find out until after the ceremony ended but all my bridesmaids were standing there without their shoes on, it seems that when the shoes were dyed to match their gowns the shoes had shrunk and their feet were hurting.

    I went to a wedding for a friend, on the beach, and in the water, was an otter floating on it's back, watching the wedding. I felt it was a positive sign for my friend and her marriage.

    No one turned on the video camera that we had set up in the sound booth at church and the absolute WRONG music was played when I walked down the isle at the beginning of the ceremony. To this day, I am so upset about it and we've been married for 7 years!

    Climbing the steps to the altar and there's a loud RIIIIPPPPPP. I caught my heel in the lining of my gown. Everything came to a DEAD STOP while my Maid of Honor quickly checked to make sure I wasn't showing off my Bridal underwear. When we finally got to the reception, my Dad had to cut around behind me to assume his place in the Receiving Line and he got tripped up on my veil. The violent yank on my head and neck which resulted gave me whiplash. I should have known that marriage wouldn't last! Truth is much stranger than fiction.

    05.26.16 arrived an hour later than rehearsal time even after we told sneakily told them it was an hour earlier....minister had yet-to-be-diagnosed Alzheimer's - our 12-minute ceremony was a bit longer than that....a brownout occurred just as the reception was starting...the cater started cutting the cake before we did..... BUT - we all had a great time and still get comments on how fun it was
