Sometimes we all have our fair share of laughs even during our wedding days. Sometimes, not all wedding days are all about tranquility; a few speeches that send the guests to giggles, the priest’s forgetfulness, and other behavior that crack everyone’s funny bone are just some of the happenings that make weddings hilariously unforgettable. Here is a collection of some funny wedding stories contributed by anonymous couples worldwide:
One funny wedding story was a story of a girl, all dressed in gorgeous but cheap bridesmaid dresses, who served as one of her cousin’s bridesmaids during a summer wedding. “I was still 10 years old that time. It was a summer church wedding with its heater in full blast and the sun’s striking rays hit us directly in our seats” she recalled. All of a sudden, two of her cousins, who were seated beside her, fainted and toppled her down. What’s worse is that she was picking her nose during that time and her fingers were shoved right into her nose, causing it to bleed.
Another funny story was when I attended my best friend’s wedding. It was a solemn church wedding until one of the altar boys went to the middle part of the altar as he assisted the priest. All of a sudden one of the flower girls shouted, “He’s the ice cream guy!” as she pointed to the altar boy, breaking the solemnity of the moment.
Forget everything during your wedding day, except your bra. One of the wife’s bridesmaids whispered to the bride that she forgot to wear a bra and that her gown is showing her breasts since it was made of a mesh fabric in the top portion. Fortunately, her soon-to-be groom was still at home when she called. She told him to bring one of her bras as she described it to him in details. Confident that he was able to understand everything about the bra, the bride waited for a few minutes before the ceremony began. When the groom arrived, she just laughed off the incident real hard because he was bringing her entire underwear cabinet since he’s already too nervous to find the right thing. Her MOB (mother of the bride) dresses also opted to just shrug the incident off.
Talking about being forgetful, I actually witnessed a marriage ceremony in which the priest totally forgot the names of the couple. He sounded this way, “Today, we witness the marriage of… of…. of…” as he was trying to find the piece of paper with the couple’s names. Never able to find the paper, he continued, “of two young souls”.
Kids can also bring out tickles in the wedding ceremony, too. In one funny wedding story, the priest said, “If anybody wishes to stop the wedding, you can say your piece”. Just then, a child started shouting no! no! Everybody turned to the child’s direction, which was on the floor and shouting the word as his mother is trying desperately to get him off from the floor. Talk about right timing.
Another funny story was during a silver wedding anniversary of my grandparents in which granny wore one of the best vintage bridal dresses that I have ever seen. You know how shaky their aged hands can be; grandpa tried to lean forward a bit and bend down to make sure to catch the cake into his mouth. So when grandma shoved the cake into his mouth, he was so close that he bit her finger. It was caught in the photo but grandma was already shaking her finger in that shoot.
Basically, we all have our fair share of laughter even during an intimate occasion like wedding. Whatever embarrassing moment that may come up during a wedding day, it should not cause you to tear up or meltdown. Don’t make petty mistakes become a reason to ruin your mood for one of the biggest events in your lifetime. The mistakes that you committed and the lessons that you learned during your funny wedding moments can all play a vital role in your marriage life. These can act as tests whether or not you can survive marriage trials or act cold and leave the vow broken. Therefore, it is fairly necessary to always come to your wedding ceremony prepared. One of the best tips in order to avoid forgetting anything is to create a checklist of the necessary things to prepare for the wedding day. The list should include booking for the event, finding a catering vendor, choosing the bands and the cake, shopping at www.bridesire.com, and many other preparations needed. You can even create a checklist of the tasks needed to accomplish per month or per day for the big day. This will guide you in whatever factor you have neglected. Another tip is to prepare everything from the wedding dresses and suits, shoes, bouquet, and all other wedding necessities on your bed as it is one of the first thing that you would normally check out during the day.
