    During my wedding we made very clear that there was to be no mention of God. My DH is Christian (non practicing) and I'm Jewish (not practicing but my mom is pretty anal about the God thing). So apparently right before I walked down the isle, the judge asked my DH what religion he was. So Dh says I'm not religious. So the judge goes to him "That's good I'll just read from the old testament" before he could say anything, the music got started and the BM were walking down the isle. So the whole ceremony was God this and God that. The fist time he said it, you could tell my eyes just widened and I did a double take and you can tell that DH just squeezed my hand really tight (he said he did that because he was afraid I would hit the guy). My mom was so overwhelmed by me getting married that she didn't notice it.

        At my husband's cousin's wedding, the bride got so drunk that she puked on her dress. She had been missing from the reception for half an hour, and we only found out what happened because my MIL ran into her in the bathroom trying to clean the puke off.
        At this same wedding, one of my husband's uncles was dancing while also being heavily intoxicated. Not noticing where he was going, he fell into a table, knocked it over (causing it to break in half), and sent glasses flying across the room.
        This is why open bar is not always a good idea!

          We had a few mishaps, nothing too crazy, but it was still the best day of my life!

          * The flowers were a half hour late.
          * Since Jay and I were eloping, I was alone when I was getting ready. My dressing assistant never showed up. So when our photographer showed up, I was in a bathrobe and had to ask her to help me into my gown.
          * When I was waiting to walk down the aisle in full bridal regalia, the shirtless entertainment director started chatting me up, asked me where i was from, and what i was up to that day. I told him and then hugged him.
          * One side of Jay's shirt collar was tucked in throughout pictures and the ceremony. I noticed it when I walked down the aisle but hen forgot to tell him.
          * My nose ran during the ceremony..BAD! I covered my nose with my bouquet and our judge had to stop, give me a tissue, and begin where he left off.
          * At the end of the ceremony we were announced as Jason and Karen Lambert-Skorupski. Skorupski is my former married name from my first marriage. We didn't notice this till we saw the video.

          * I looked down during pictures and saw that my shoe was covered in blood. I had gotten a blister.

          * We did a wedding toast with tequila for the camera. The waiter gave us a double shot. I was on my way to drunky land during our pics.

            I've got a fairly good one.

            My little sister got married last June at my parents brand new house. They had just finished building it and have moved in only 2 weeks before the wedding. The house is minutes from Yosemite National Park and not near any real city, so they rely on well water. I have extremely large family. (my Dad’s side with just aunts, uncles, and cousins is 90+) and many of them were staying at the house or had RVs parked near the house using hookups. Well about halfway through the reception the water reservoir tank ran dry…no water. The well can pump to refill it, but it takes over 24hours.

            I thought my parents would freak, but they were having too much fun dancing in a champagne haze that they just told me to put signs that the well ran dry on all the toilets and facets and to use the RVs in the mean time. Without skipping a beat everyone did just that and it worked out fine. You would have never known. They next morning the reservoir had refilled enough so we could take showers and by that night we were back to normal. It made me realize how great my family is…no one cared or freaked.

              I have a friend who kinda has a drinking problem. SHe really like to get wasted, scream at people, then pass the f-out, usually with her skirt above her head.

              Well, at a friends wedding last summer she was in rare form! I honestly think she was drinking before she even got to the wedding. During the cocktail hour she was doing shots so she was hammered by the time the bride & groom got there.

              The bride's entire (conservative) family was there from Shanghai, and many of them didn't speak English. So, friend proceeds to kidnap the bride's father, drag him to the dance floor and go crazy with the freak-dancing/humping thing. She has this move called the "Beyonce" that I can't even begin to describe.

              Then, at the dinner table...(It was an outdoor wedding under a tent) she decided she had to pee. So, she hiked her dress up around her waist, scooted to the edge of her chair and peed! On the ground! At the dinner table!

              Luckily there were enough of us babysitting and running interference that I don't think the bride ever found out, at least not at the wedding.

                Crap, I may have had a drinking problem!

                Oh this is a classic! I thought it was bad when our best man got out of the pool and peed his pants in front of everyone. This one SO tops it.

                  That makes me think of Molly Shannon!

                    BUMP, cuz it could be fun!

                    My wedding mishap was that I forgot my dress when going to JA! Seriously. I remembered when we got to the airport. Luckily our families were coming down the next day, so they could bring it for us. What kind of bride forgets their dress

                    At the AHR - I forgot to wear my veil at all! Not in one photos am I wearing my veil. I really wanted to to! I left it in the car when we got to the location, cuz I didn't want to hold it, and it was super long, so I didn't want to wear it yet. Then never thought about it again. Oh well.

                      I can't believe I forgot one...it happened on my wedding day, but it's been such a fun anecdote, I didn't think of it as a mishap!

                      I broke my husband's ring finger...

                      Not intentionally! He had actually broken it himself at work two months before the wedding, but didn't go to the doctor (men, sometimes I wonder how they survive!). He figured he'd be fine in time for the wedding, regardless of the fact that his finger was twice it's normal size.

                      About a week before the wedding he decided maybe he should try on his ring, to see if it would fit...it wouldn't go over the knuckle, but he still figured he had a week for it to heal properly. I wasn't convinced but what can you do a week from the wedding, when the rings take two months to order?

                      So the wedding arrives, I get down the aisle, I'm crying and smiling, and it's time to do the rings. Mine goes on smoothly, but when we got to Timm's, it stopped at the knuckle. I looked down at it, Timm looked down at it, the reverend looked down at it...then Timm looked at me, and said, "Just shove it"...so I did...and there was this sickening CRACK as the ring cracked the knuckle bone.

                      By the end of the night his finger looked like an hour glass, with his ring being the centre while his finger pudged out around it...it looked awful! We did manage to get the ring off a few days later with much swearing and I think some vaseline...

                      On a side note, his work paid for the replacement of his ring.

                      Still makes for quite a fun story at family gatherings and social functions.
