Weddings are supposed to be the happiest day of your life. However, it just doesn’t always wind up that way. Sometimes all the planning, primping, and prepping is for naught, and the day is a disaster. These Reddit users have shared the worst weddings they’ve ever attended, and the results are…well, be glad it wasn’t you.

10. Confetti Isn’t Food

“There was like an 8-year-old boy who had loads of confetti in his hand, so I didn’t think much of it. Turns out he thought it was sugar paper and ate all of it. He then proceeded to projectile vomit everywhere through the middle of the ceremony. Was one of the funniest and most disgusting moments of my life.”


9. Karate Kid

“Friend’s wedding. The bride’s nephew (about 7, I think?) was the ring bearer. Instead of sitting at the front after he made it down the aisle, he decided to do karate moves in front of (and sometimes behind) the couple during the entire ceremony. He’s in almost all their photos.”


8. Another On?

“After arriving 45 minutes after the ceremony was to begin, during the ring exchange, the groom gets this blank look and says he didn’t know he was supposed to buy her another ring. SIL slipped off her wedding band and handed it off to the preacher.”


7. Slammed or Stroked?

“At a cousin’s wedding, my uncle was smashed and thought he’d had a stroke in the bathroom as he couldn’t straighten himself. Turned out he’d buttoned his waistcoat to his trousers and couldn’t stand up.”


6. Yikes…

“At the reception, the bride received a tip to go out to the parking lot, where she found her new husband making out with his ex-girlfriend. The ensuing fight came inside the hall and the party screeched to a halt. Both families were displeased and stuck him with A LOT of bills. We kept our gift.”


5. A Sour Start

“One of my best friend’s weddings. The groom got so under the influence that he straight disappeared from the reception. It got really awkward when it was time for the wedding to be OVER. The venue was kicking us out and the bride and groom were supposed to take off in their vintage car and drive off to their honeymoon suite. The music went off, lights went on, and it turned into the guests searching for the groom. My husband finally found him in the parking lot basically face down on his lips.

He helped him back into the wedding which was basically the most awkward walk of shame past the bride’s glaring dad and grandfather. The groom was too under the influence to drive, so the bride’s grandfather drove them to the hotel suite (which was a 30-minute drive). My friend (the bride) later told me that when they got in the room, her new husband, passed out cold on the bed and she had to wander the halls in her wedding dress looking for someone to unhook her dress for her so she could get out of it.”


4. A Different Kind of Red Wedding

“I was an attendant in my best friend’s wedding. Her father walked her down the aisle and while he was not visibly under the influence, he had a hard time walking behind her to sit in the pew. He stepped on her dress ripping it from her back down to her rear (her thong was red). They had to stop the wedding so that she could find safety pins.”


3. Knees Bent, Knees Bent!

“Nervous groom stood with his legs straight for too long. Fell forward and knocked himself out cold hitting the first step to the platform with his head.”


2. Wedding Crasher, Cake Smasher

“We were partying in Puerto Vallarta, and there was a beautiful wedding going on at the hotel next door. A friend of a friend of mine was pretty under the influence, then just sprinted for the wedding. He hopped the wall, blasted through the seating arrangements, then body slammed the like, 6-foot tall wedding cake.

He spent the next two days in a Mexican jail.”


1. Double Disaster

“Just as the bride started walking down the aisle, her grandmother had a sudden cardiac event. We had to stop the procession and start CPR in the aisle way.

What’s worse is that we were in a large park, and people calling 911 couldn’t give the address. I ran to the rangers station, but it was locked. I broke a window screen and crawled through to use the landline EMS could trace and respond. She didn’t make it.

As an added bonus to the horrible situation, I later found out the ranger had placed a hidden camera in the women’s restroom where the girls got ready/dressed for the wedding. He served jail time.”


Like we said…be happy it wasn’t you.
