Wedding Planners Share Their Worst Horror Stories
I've worked at this most amazing wedding ever which didn't even lasted for 6 hours. I was bartending at the reception when all of a sudden the groom stood up to give a toast! After he was over with his warm wishes, he seeks the attention of the best man and his wife. He told them that he knew they were having sex behind his back for the entirety of the engagement and that he would be filing for an annulment on Monday. He thanked everyone for coming, and apologized to the father of the bride saying " I would have called it off weeks ago, but I figured you would be way more pissed at your little princess when you couldn't get out of the bill for the reception."
#9 The Vows
One of my Minister friends did a wedding once where, in the vows, the woman didn't say "for richer or poorer". She just went on saying "for richer or richer". And she wasn't joking either. They didn't last long.
#8 Better late than never
This poor bride was already 6 months pregnant at the time of their wedding and the groom arrived 3 hours late. By the end of hour 2, he had not even picked up his tuxedo and hence, they have almost packed up when the groom arrived because he wasn't even picking up the phone. But finally, the wedding happened!
#7 The Catering Mess
We had about 350-500 guests on the wedding list. Though we had finalised the caterer 9 months in advance and also deposited an initial sum, he said he had doubled up the entire cost just a week ahead of the wedding day.
My wife, being feisty Italian/Greek/Hispanic that she is, says, "I will have my wedding in my backyard before I ever have you cater my wedding, and you can take that $500 deposit and either donate it to the church or shove it up your a**!"
He really lost a lot of money that day. As luck would have it our first choice had a cancellation THAT DAY and they were desperate to fill it, so we got it basically at cost.
#6 Oh. My. God
I was the event manager with the caterer at this lavish wedding. The 6-months-pregnant maid of honour tells the bride's sissy that she's regularly having sex with the groom and even the baby is his! And this is how we went back home early that night
#5 The Pouty Face
We stayed at the hotel we'll be getting married in the next day, so, ours was the room next to the couple who were married the same day. They had arranged an after party in their room so they were screaming at the top of their voices and all. So we complained to the front desk.
Next day, we learnt that they had arranged for an extra night in the same room and this time they were yelling at each other. We couldn't figure out what exactly was going on, but we clearly heard the woman yell, "I can't talk to you when you have your pouty face."
Three years later we still use that on each other and it instantly diffuses any argument. I often wonder what happened to them.
#4 And the real winner is
My sister-in-law announced in front of everyone that it was only her wedding that was blessed by God and mine wasn't. Well, the reason that she gave was because she was married in a Church and I had a civil ceremony. And 7 years down the line, I'm the only one still married. LOL!
#3 Oh those bets
We had a few common friends taking bets at our wedding on how long we were going to last. Most of them had confessed they bet six months. I couldn't really blame them because we were together for less than a year, just turned 18 and both going into the military.
We worked out though. Celebrating 11 years next month. If only we got all those bets in writing, we'd be rich!
#2 The Gestures
Just an observation. The subtle signs like how closely the bride and groom sat next to each other during the speeches, dinner, etc speak a lot about the couple.
The happy couples were always right on top of each other, sharing food, laughing, and just generally chatting. They were in their own world, while the rest of the wedding went on around them. Other times, the two would be practically on the other side of the table from one another. The groom would spend the whole meal turned away chatting with his groomsmen, while the bride looked the other way staring into space.
Families can be jerks, people get drunk, and nightmares happen, especially as the night progresses, but if you don't care enough to appreciate the presence of your spouse the very first time you sit down next to them, you have no chance once the real world takes over.
#1 The Bet Placed Right
Not a wedding planner, but I was dating a girl that was a bridesmaid in her friend's wedding and I had placed a bet about groom's infidelity that too just in a week!
The ceremony didn't even focus much on the bride, it was more so the groom and his church buddies. I only had dinner with him once and took an instant hatred to him which is surprisingly rare for me.
I told my girlfriend that I give it six months. Almost six months to the day he calls the bride from a different city/state, admits he cheated and has his parents go get his stuff from their house. Classy gentleman!
