Question: because i'm bored

We went to a wedding a few weeks ago for two work friends. Their pastor had known the bride since she was 13 and was the kind that tries to be super funny during the ceremony. At one point he mentioned how being married makes your sex life that much more special. He gave examples and mentioned his and his wife's sex life. All the BMs were cracking up, the bride was shocked, and the groom was laughing histerically at the fact that the pastor was preaching on his personal sex life to everyone.

Anything crazy/funny ever happen at a wedding you have been to or your own?
Anniversary

    OMG thats funny/horrifying.  I was at a wedding once in some sort of a hall.  They had those long folding tables (the high school cafeteria kind) and the catered it with KFC.  So they had all these buckets of chicken and salad and buns etc all laid out.  The legs on one end of the table collapsed, so the table turned into a huge slide.  The food slid down the table into a heap on the floor.

    That's pretty funny. I can just imagine the look on everyone's faces when they saw the pile of food.

    It was bemused horror.  We kind of all thought it was funny in the first place when the WP came in with buckets of KFC, but ok fine, and then tragedy.

    HA the KFC one is pretty bad.  I've only been to 2 weddings, and at one of them, the father of the groom gave a toast about walking in on the bride and groom.

    I was at a wedding where no one thought the bride and the groom should be getting married. The BM's toast was, "Well, you went through with it, way to show us. well, I guess we get to start a new pool no!"

    haha-sounds like my brother and SIL's wedding. Although, the officiate did say "Do you Korina take Josh?" My brother's name is Michael. The officiate stumbled through it but my SIL didn't say her vows.

    I went to a wedding where the preacher said the bride's name wrong.  Repeatedly. Even after being corrected by the groom.

    I've told this story a few times, but when friends of ours had their fake wedding last summer (They JOP'd 2 years ago, her parents literally made them have a do-over and told all the extended family it was the "real" wedding), the groom was dragged down the aisle by the GMs while his father shouted "You're going to make an honest woman out of her whether you like it or not!".

    The groom loves his wife very much, for the record.

    Y'all are cracking me up over here!

    When I was younger (maybe 6?) I was a flower girl in my aunt's wedding. My only male cousin was the ring bearer. During the reception, he disappeared with the groomsment to decorate the getaway car, which was a classic car built by my new uncle from a kit. It was his his pride and joy to say the least.

    Because they didn't want to risk ruining the paint job, they decorated it with oreos. They  spilt all the oreos, licked the filling side, and stuck them to the car. When they were done, they all came back inside, and my cousin proceeded to puke all over his mom's shoes. Turns out he was eating all of the OTHER sides of the oreos that they stuck to the car! He was totally green. He must have eaten the other half of at least 2 packages of oreos. Poor baby!

    SO it wasn't tacky or weird, but a sad story about what happens when you leave a 5 year old alone with older guys and oreos ;)

    We were at a Catholic convalidation/vow renewal and the bridal party was running late.  Everyone was kind of just sitting around waiting and all of a sudden start hearing high pitched shrieking from outside and everyone knew they'd arrived.  The bridal party had caught some sun showers on their way from the car.

    Sarah - everytime i eat oreos i'll think of that story now. haha

    He's 30 now (just a few months younger than me) and my mom still tells that story any time someone brings up weddings. And it still makes me laugh because I remember it happening.

    BTW, oreos are a totally cool idea for decorating a car.. and much easier to remove than shoe polish or shrink wrap.

    We went to a wedding where the rabbi kept talking about how the couple loves gay marriage. Apparently, during their interviews, they briefly mentioned gay marriage and he just went with it. It was funny because we seriously heard so much about gay marriage and so little about the bride and groom.

    We were on our way to a wedding once and got into a car accident. When the other driver and passengers got out, they were all dressed in military uniforms. I asked them if they were in our friends wedding because I knew groom was a Marine. They said yes. All of the groomsmen were in the car and had to wait around for the police to show up and clear the scene (almost 45 minutes). I called the MOH who is one of my best friends to let her know because I didn't want the bride to panic. The limo had to come pick us all up and take us to the wedding which we were all late to. (Had to call my sister to come pick us up after the ceremony so we could go get my car to attend reception).

       After that fiasco, the processional began and the bride got all the way down the aisle before anyone told her the reverend wasn't down there (he had gone to the bathroom). We waited another few minutes and they started the processional over. At the end of the service the reverend pronounced them Mr. and Mrs. Black but their last name is Slack.

      At the reception they went to play the father/daughter dance "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong and for some reason it was a record and the record was scratched. It was one thing after another.

    These stories are hilarious.

    At my friends' wedding, the bakery doing her cake never delivered it. Someone had to run out during the reception to purchase a small 8" round cake from a local grocery store so they would have something to cut for the photos. On top I think someone had hurriedly scrawled their names in like red gel icing.  The photos are actually pretty funny.  

    Her wedding was on a holiday Monday of a long weekend so it ended up being part of the reason for the delivery SNAFU and the bake shop ended up giving her a fuill refund plus the cake that she donated to the old folks' home.

    Anyway, not as dramatic as some of the other stories but this thread just goes to show that anything can happen during a wedding day...I'm hoping everything goes smoothly for mine next month but I'm totally prepared to go with the flow in case it doesn't. Ha.

    In June of 2009 my future brother-in-law got married in Hawaii. they got married on the beach and as the limo pulled up to our destination we see a cop car and a police officer arresting a drunken bum. well after the ceremony we all went out to eat. The limo dropped us off at the restaurant we had picked, everyone gets out of the limo and the limo drives off. Then someone spots the sign on the door saying "closed for renovations, will open winter of 2008" well the limo was long gone by then so we ended up walking to Jimmy Buffets. we finally get a table and everyone starts getting phone calls from the groom, only the groom didn't have his phone. turns out the groom had dropped his phone on the beach and some guy had picked it up. the father of the groom has the man meet us at Jimmy Buffets and offers him a beer as a thank you. The guy shows up and he is the apitomy of a surf bum, old, bleached hair, hippie guy. he stayed for what seemed like hours, talking and telling stories, even ordered himself the most expensive dinner on the menu. The groom's father finally got sick of it and asked the man to leave and had the waitress box his dinner to go.
