The groom was drinking heavily and by the time the cake was supposed to be cut, he was passed out at the back of the room. The bride was crying hysterically. Dad stepped in and cut the cake with the bride. Former Maitre d’Hotel.
I once went to my husband’s friend’s wedding. I knew the groom but barely knew the bride. After the ceremony, I swung by the bathroom to make a pit stop. I walked in on the bride crying in the bathroom. Apparently, she didn’t want to get married but only did so because she and her husband had had sex, and it was her ‘duty’ to marry him (note: they’d had sex ONCE, and she wasn’t pregnant). We spend 30 minutes talking with her crying her eyes out before her grandmother turned up and took over for me. She was gone for 90% of the reception. Her husband was having a grand time dancing with his friends and really hadn’t noticed his wife was missing.
We lost touch shortly after the wedding. Years later, we ran into the guy, and he said that the two of them were still happily married and now had 3 kids together. Hopefully she’s genuinely happy and it isn’t him just being blissfully unaware of her unhappiness.
My husband’s brother having a seaside wedding. Our almost 2 year old was the ring bearer. He passed off the rings to the best man (Dad), then toddled away. …Off the cliff.
It was prob a 60-80′ drop to the beach below, but he luckily got caught up in the bushes, and husband snatched him up. He was buckled into his stroller after that, kamikaze kid.
