20+ Tales of Extremely Bad Behavior at Weddings

Ever been to a wedding where some seriously weird stuff went down? I’m talking about some over-the-top bad behavior that left everyone in attendance cringing?

If so, take a look at these AskReddit stories and see if yours measure up with these priceless gems.

27. Drunk mom

Drunk mother of the groom who ACTUALLY STOOD UP when the preacher said “speak now.” The father dragged her out with her kicking and screaming, literally kicking and screaming at him, while she slurred her words. She yelled and screamed all of the way out the door until more family got her subdued and took her home.

She was pissed because her son was marrying a girl she didn’t approve of.

26. Obnoxious

At my best friend’s wedding, a mutual friend of ours brought her obnoxious boyfriend as her date. He started dancing wildly thinking it’s funny. He repeatedly tried to start a slow clap, and had to be told not to stand on chairs 3 times. He tried to breakdance and knocked over the bride’s mother.

25. SHOCKED

Went to a wedding where the mother of the bride came in a white, lacy dress.

She was SHOCKED and JUST FLATTERED that people thought she was the bride. She was SO SHOCKED.

I know she was, because that’s what she said every time someone made a crack about her looking like a bride. While she feigned embarrassment.

That woman is the worst.

24. All about me

At my friends wedding one of her friends ended up proposing to his girlfriend. Best way to take attention from the bride and groom and put it onto yourself. Kinda ruined the brides day.

23. Bad timing

Literally five minutes before our wedding ceremony started my aunt came up to me (the bride) and told me that my grandfather had cancer and mostly a few months to live. I had not known but seeing him that morning I saw that he was not well. (my parents and sister had (unnecessarily) kept it from me before the wedding)

Auntie dearest just came up to me and said: If I were you I would not be so happy, did you not know that your grandfather is dying? I cannot remember but apparently I replied: Well, let me get married first and then we’ll take care of this.

22. Class act

At my brother’s wedding his bride’s ex-husband showed up uninvited, drunk, and several of us had to escort him quickly out of the church since it was obvious he came to ruin the ceremony.

21. The Best Man comes through

Maid of Honor/Sister of the bride spent 20 minutes talking about how nerdy the groom was, how she and all her friends couldn’t believe when they started dating, mentioned going home with a new guy every week, brought up how her mom and dad didn’t like his parents for some reason.

She was underage and clearly drunk at a non-alcoholic wedding.

Best Man managed to salvage the situation by delivering literally the best Best Man’s speech I’ve ever heard.

20. Pure Rage

I photographed a wedding back in 2015, wherein during his speech at the reception, the best man inadvertently revealed to the 200+ guests that the bride was pregnant.

Up until that point, only a very select few people knew. The look of pure rage/shock/embarrassment she gave him was staggering.

19. Mother-in-law

Mother-in-law tried to hijack the photographer to take the pictures she wanted. I warned the photographer beforehand she would do this and he had mine and the bride’s full permission to verbally slap her down if need be. He did… brutally. I tipped him well.

18. Don’t invite this lady to your wedding

At one of my best friend’s wedding. His drunk coworker tried to have sex with literally everyone there. Tried to make out with a bunch of his married friends, male and female. Grinded on the 80 year old grandmother in a wheelchair, pulled random family members into weird dances. It was really awkward and everyone rejected her advances.

Oh, and did I mention she had her husband there too? He basically just sat in a chair drinking beer watching like he’d seen it a million times. Seemed like a real decent guy too, and I felt bad for him. Worst at my own wedding was just a drunk girlfriend of a friend doing stripper moves in a short dress sans underwear. But that was possibly the most popular event at the wedding so, no harm done.

17. Rude couple

So this wasn’t a rude guest, it was a rude bride and groom. They had a 5 pm reception with no food. None. Not even a cheese platter. They didn’t warn us beforehand so we didn’t know to eat before going. The reception was in a very rural location so we couldn’t run anywhere to grab a bite.

We had to write our address on a thank you note envelope. Which I’ve seen before. But, we were also directed to write our own thank you notes!

Finally, at 9 pm I told my husband we had to leave because I’m starving and they wouldn’t let us leave until we helped fold tables and chairs.
