    we attended a wedding years ago that was struck by a tropical storm. it was supposed to be an outdoor wedding, but the chairs and everything were getting knocked around and things were getting really messy. the reception ran off a generator, so the lights for the whole place were quite dim most of the time. food was lukewarm. noone was surprised when about 14 months later the bride left the groom....her mistake. he is a fantastic guy! but anyway, the relationship was not a good one, so i guess the odd experience makes sense looking back on it.

    Not very exciting, but our best man didn't show up at our wedding.

    My husband pulled a chicken and boxers out of my dress when he went for my garter.

    A friend called me up and said the groom just wasn't ready. I'm not sure if she meant literally or figuratively. I think it was she who wasn't ready.

    While sitting at the head table during her wedding, a friend of mine was getting up for a dance, when her shoe got caught on the edge of her wedding gown. It happened so fast, but she sort of spun around and then upside down width the chair kind of on top of her and the wedding gown spread out all over her head and body, and arms and legs flailing, like an upside-down turtle. What make it even worse was that her husband just stood there for about five seconds, not knowing what to do! She was okay, but to this day, everybody remembers that wedding!

    Well my first marriage was doomed from the start, I passed out, got sick and when our pictures came back, none of them turned out! It was terrible!

    We have a picture when during the kiss the ring bearer is leaning way over trying to see what is going on.

    My sister was at the end of her wedding ceremony and when she and her new husband were about to walk down the aisle. The best man tripped and fell into my sister, knocking her down. Nobody was hurt but it was not something that anyone would like to repeat. Everyone got back up and walked down the aisle. WHEW!

    During our vows, my husband stated "with this wing, I thee Wed" .... apparently he was hungry. Then to top it off, the next day he lost his wedding band in the Gulf of Mexico, while playing football on the beach with friends. We ended up spending part of our wedding money to try and locate the ring! (It was found!!!!)

    My older sister was 4 months pregnant with her first child and was a chuppah holder at my wedding. During the ceremony, she decided to make a scene and started breathing hard and saying she had to sit down IMMEDIATELY. (She was really fine the whole time.) Our youngest sister (10 years old!) then had to step in and take over the pole holding. Got it all on video...
