    I once went to a friends wedding and just before the bridal party walked in I got a severe case of the giggles. I can't recall what was said but it was giggle loop levels of giggling. I was nearly hyperventilating I was giggling so hard, and I could NOT stop . I finally had to run to the bathroom to compose myself and missed them walking in.

    The caterer had a van accident and never showed up and we had no food at the wedding reception.

    My husband spent the night before our wedding working until the wee hours of the morning, with the help of two of our wedding guests, to finish the wiring on the Theatre where we were to be married! i was a Total nervous wreck! But they did it, and we were married there, and the band could plug in their amplifiers and all was well! PHEW!

    My husband, a pilot as well as a pastor, was asked to perform a wedding ceremony while on a hot air balloon ride. The day came but the weather didn't cooperate so the flight and wedding were postponed to the next day. Plan B had a similar problem so for safety's sake, the flight and wedding were indefinitely postponed. I am not sure but I think the wedding was never held--I know the balloon flight never took place.

    Instead of walking slowing the flower girl and ring bearer held hands and skipped fast down the aisle. Everyone was laughing. They were so cute.

    We were on our way to City Hall with my Dad driving, and I told him to turn around and go home. Fortunately he ignored me, and we have been married almost 44 years, and, as my husband has said often quoting Henny Youngman, many of them have been happy!

    We hired a group with strolling violin players plus an accordion player for my wedding reception to play during dinner. As we were enjoying dinner all of a sudden we heard Jingle Bells playing (my wedding was in May!). Turns out when the group asked a certain table if they had any requests, my 7-year old brother in law really wanted to hear some Christmas music.

    They forgot to bring the rings!

    My husband asked our photographer if she was comfortable shooting a film camera instead of digital (as he is a photographer and prefers film), which she stated she was and there was not one good photo of just the two of us from our professional :(

    We had finished saying our pieces and the minister told me to place the ring on his finger. I reached for the wrong hand. He tried to switch, but I wouldn't let him! I don't know what, or if, I was thinking. After the ceremony, the minister told hubby he had a way out if he wanted. I was not amused then, but it's funny now!
