These 15 Dramatic Wedding Stories Will Make Your Jaw Drop
While it's nice to hear lovely stories from beautiful weddings, let's be real: dramatic wedding stories can be way more fun. Between the high stakes, the intense emotions, and the open bars, nuptials can often take a turn for the wacky — especially, you know, if Aunt Barbara and Uncle Dave are in the same room together for the first time since their divorce in 1997. The truth is that not every wedding goes exactly as planned.
In a recent Reddit AskWomen thread, people shared the most dramatic things they've seen and heard at weddings and, oh man, they did not disappoint. From ripped wedding dresses to blackout drunk grooms, and double-booked churches to suddenly closed venues, it's clear that a surprising amount can go wrong... and that's not even counting all the awkward moments that can go down at the altar.
Despite hiccups during the nuptials themselves, there's no real proof out there that an awkward ceremony or even a disastrous reception will carry over into a ruined relationship. Accidents happen, and brides and grooms can't control everything. Ultimately, wedding drama is just that — a piece of gossip that has no real bearing on the actual marriage itself.
The groom disappeared.
The groom got black out drunk halfway through the dinner and disappeared. The bride gave a brief speech and disappeared to tend to him. We didn't know if that was the end so we just all left whenever we finished our dinner. A very anticlimactic ending
They found out the venue was closed upon their arrival.
Got to the reception venue to find out it was closed - they'd had a major problem in the kitchen. Despite knowing our cell phone numbers, they called my mother in law's LANDLINE during the wedding. Because obviously someone was going to be there to answer it.
My dad found out first (we didn't have the wedding at the reception venue) and met us in the car park and I honestly thought he was joking. :(
At my cousins wedding when my brother was about 5, they decided to do speeches before the wedding breakfast and everyone was STARVING. My brother drank a load of orange juice and because his stomach was empty he ended up projectile vomiting everywhere.
The priest forgot there was a wedding scheduled in their church. We were waiting a while, then someone called the private number and an hour later the priest arrived with the keys to the church and held the ceremony. Could say that was a sign, that marriage didn’t last.
My sister punched our mom at her wedding reception. She got so drunk and went to leave with her young daughter and our mom wouldn't let her leave. She was so worried. Well my sister didn't give a flying f*ck.. turned around and punched her in the face.
