    store-brand cans of soda in those plastic buckets you put kegs and ice in... not necessarily a detail but you can't spring for name brand Coke?

    They went to the "side" of the room to do it. I guess to be more discrete? People were whispering at our table about it, but I think everyone knew how embarrassing that was and tried to not make it a big deal.

    I went to a wedding where the bride's aunt made the lovely styrofoam centerpieces covered in fake flowers, doves and pearls with hot glue string hanging/showing everywhere.  The funniest part was the aunt and bride said nobody was allowed to take them with them because the aunt wanted to keep them.

    not the bride or groom's FAULT...but they had a friend sing at their church ceremony that was wearing the MOST inappropriate dress.  It was inappropriate even for the reception so at the church it was ridiculous.  Super short, no back, and a loose fitting "bib" type top half--no bra so if you looked at her from the side, you could see nipple.At least try some double stick tape!!!  I couldn't believe it.

    Industrial Port-o-Johns.  Thought it was an outdoor wedding, so i'm not sure what else could have been done.  but there were bugs and stuff in them.  not really what you want when you're wearing a dress!!!
