1. “Someone introduced their very own bottles of wine to my wedding ceremony reception…at a winery. We had beer, wine, and specialty drinks, so everybody had a lot of choices. But this pompous asshole – who was on my husband’s aspect of the visitor listing – introduced two bottles to drink himself. I am positive he thought he was so excessive class that he needed to deliver his personal fancier wine, however I simply needed to deck him in the face once I realized what was happening.” –Abby B., 36, NY
2. “We received married at the top of a mountain, and our friends hiked to the prime with us. So it was clearly a extra informal ceremony. But I child you not, somebody confirmed up in a bra with a hula hoop and began hula hooping and meditating. Then, at the reception (which was very purposefully small), somebody introduced a visitor who wasn’t invited and stated, ‘Oh, I do know it is in all probability impolite, however I did it anyway. It’s OK, we’ll simply share laps or rearrange the seats.’ Um, excuse me?!” –Allison P., 28, Hannibal, NY
three. “I had a woman bug me for every week straight, asking to bring her son that I barely knew to my wedding ceremony. I informed her no, we did not have room on the visitor record, however that if somebody backed out I might let her know. Having her son at my wedding ceremony was not on my precedence record, so I just about forgot about it after that. But the day of the wedding ceremony, she texted me to see if anybody backed out (she had by no means introduced it up once more after the response I gave her). I used to be livid that she had the balls to ask, so I did not reply. She should have taken that as a “sure” as a result of she introduced her son to my ceremony, and in the receiving line requested me as soon as once more if she might deliver him to the reception. I flat-out advised her no. There was no approach I used to be giving in to her after pulling that stunt.” –Shelbi S., 24, North Pole, AK
four. “My grandpa, a pastor, carried out the ceremony for my husband and I. Usually, my grandma serves as the day-of coordinator for any weddings he does, however I requested her to not this time round and stated she might take pleasure in watching her granddaughter get married with none stress. We had a coordinator offered for us by the venue – it was included in our charge – so I needed to take full benefit and work with somebody who was conversant in the distributors and venue itself. I all the time questioned if she was miffed about it, however she by no means introduced it up so I let it go. But then she confirmed up at my wedding ceremony in head-to-toe white, and sat as near the entrance as she might. Guess that solutions that query.” –Samantha L., 27, NY
5. “As a wedding coordinator, I really feel like I’ve seen all of it. The worst offense, although, is bringing a plus one when you have not been invited with one, or you have not RSVP’d saying you are bringing a visitor. It virtually all the time seems that the visitor will get mad once they do not have a seat! Sorry, however weddings are disturbing sufficient – why individuals assume they’re the bride’s most important precedence, particularly once they’re the ones to have made a mistake, is past me. And of course the bride and groom are, 99.9% of the time, absurdly well mannered about all of it.” –Betsy G., 36, Syracuse, NY
6. “I used to be in the wedding ceremony celebration for a good friend, and her mother and father are near 20 years older than the groom’s.

People seemed round at one another, unsure if they need to snigger. She continues, wanting pointedly at the bride’s mother and father and saying, ‘Jim and Debbie have a number of years on us, so I assume we’ll see.’ This lady was actually hoping that her son’s in-laws would die quickly so she might proceed to have her son all to herself.” –Lindsey S., 29, Washington, D.C.
7. “My own sister, who’s 40 and married herself and will know higher, wore a pure, solid-white gown to my wedding ceremony. Thankfully, my photographer edited it to be a pale yellow in all of the household portraits. –Jena D., 28, Cheektowaga, NY
eight. “I used to be at a country wedding when the bride obtained drunk and began preventing with a bridesmaid. It was an outside ceremony and indoor reception, they usually have been outdoors screaming. I’ve no clue what it was about, however the bride screamed, ‘You have ruined my f*cking wedding ceremony, you f*cking bitch!’ Eventually somebody picked up the bride and carried her away. While I do love a superb f-bomb at a marriage reception, this one was just a little extreme.” –Karen P., 49, St. Johnsville, NY
9. “One of my bridesmaids, who had been my roommate for the final two years, obtained tremendous trashed at my wedding ceremony. She had accomplished it at my bachelorette party, too, however I assumed she’d hold it collectively for the precise wedding ceremony. Nope. She acquired scorching mess categorical wasted, left the reception early, and ended up nailing the bartender.” –Elizabeth L., 29, Austin, TX
