    I was at one where when the MC was introducing the couple during their reception entrance he said the grooms brothers name in place of the grooms name.

      I was at a wedding where a GM fainted and fell off the "stage" at the church. It ended up be pretty funny, once we realized he was OK.

        Yes Carly! The problem was that we had to get up at like 6am to go to LC. So smart people would probably set their stuff out the night before and double check that it's all there. Instead, they got up early, put on their bathing suits....actually check that- ONE got up early and the other had to be drug out of bed 5 mins before we got in our taxi. Anyways, both forgot to pack panties. I think my mom even did too! LOL

        They debated wearing their swim suit bottoms but both had ties on the sides of their bottoms so it made their dress not fit right. They decided to go sans panties. That's why the boat ride back from LC to PV was a very interesting ride. They were trashed and attempted to keep their dresses from flying up. Unfortunately, Steve saw a little too much of my sister's ass.

        Laughter ensued:

        until they got creative and decided to put some shorts on underneath:

        Even I had a fear of flashing my ginormous blue granny panties.

                My wedding was only a week away so this is all fresh in my mind, its not as bad as some of the other stories:

                1. Our best man wore a shirt that was similar to the rest of the GM shirts but a few shades darker. Another GM wore the same shirt becuase the BM bought it for him. I did not notice until I turned to face my husband and the difference in the color caught my eye. I just decided to let it go, they were almost the same, but how do you do that? We sent him the link to Macy's site, complete with a description and a SKU. Oh well, at least it was blue.

                2. When I returned from taking pictures after the ceremony, my guests informed that my WC crashed her golf cart into the buffet table. Thank god there was no food in it, but I guess it made a loud bang when the chaffing dishes hit the pavement.

                3. During her toast, my mom said "today we lost a member of the family." I know she meant it in a nice way, like they gave me away to Bob's family, but it just sounded like I died.

                  Ok I'm sorry but the WC crashing into the buffet with a golf cart- classic! Did you guys give her a sobriety test? How the hell do you do that!

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.
                  lol, i would FREEEEAK OUUUUT if that was my wedding. that's exactly what i'm telling whoever performs our ceremony. my FI is not religious at all and definitely is NOT a believer and i'm not such a believer myself. if there is any mention people will see me as they've never seen me before. although our parents would LOVE for god to be in ceremony.

                    I was in this wedding and towards the end of the night, she started opening her gifts...at the reception, in front of everyone...Some one had given her this pricey collector doll, and she opens it and looks at it with this disgusted look, throws it to the side, and then says thank you to whoever, very sarcastically. I was embarrassed to even be there!
                    Not a funny mishap, but..some people!
                    I have never seen a bride open the gifts at the reception. I guess she just couldn't wait.

                    anyway, traditionally at a jewish wedding, the husband steps on a glass, usually a lightbulb, wrapped in a napkin, to symbolize unbroken love and a whole bunch of other junk. in order to appease both sets of parents (who weren't thrilled w/ a minister marrying us), dh was going to break it. i realize halfway thru the ceremony - he's not wearing shoes!!! the minister says mysteriously, "and we have a surprise for everyone!" and i whisper, "no, he can't, no shoes!" she says, "huh? why aren't you wearing shoes?" and then madness entails.....my cousin (6'+, huge feet) throws a flip flop from the back row to dh (who's 5'8" on a good day). dh puts it on and can't get a grip to break the glass b/c the shoe is so damn big. cousin screams "consider that your wedding gift". dh breaks the glass by slamming his foot down - he was afraid that it wouldn't break, and had he not slammed so hard, it wouldn't have ... even after we told the wc to use a lightbulb, she still wrapped a glass up...and not a wine glass, or a champagne flute...a thick glass that you would ordinarily get a soda in.
                    This is so funny!

                    OMG there are too many hilarious stories that I had to stop multi-quoting. Rachel, those pictures are too funny.
