What's something you saw at a wedding that made you swear...

Recommended Posts

that you would never do, or have at your wedding.

 

Not to be mean... I love my cousin but at her GORGEOUS poolside ceremony she had these christmas ornaments on the tables as a favor and they had photocopied a photo of themselves and stuck inside with confetti and it was really awful. It was just really random and a really bad quality photo. It was odd.

I went to a wedding with a putting green and a pinata. It did not go over well and it was literally the only form of entertainment.

 

I also went to a wedding that served pumpkin bread and some kind of pineapple fluff. That was about it. My family all went out to Outback afterwards. We traveled 4 hours to get to that wedding which included an overnight stay. The least they could've done was feed us!

I just got back from a wedding in the Mayan and it was on the beach during mid-day and as I turned around to watch the bride walk down the aisle I saw a woman tanning topless who was standing up watching the ceremony (she had huge knockers)...it was totally distracting if you know what I mean. It is something kind of out of your control but if it was my wedding I would've flipped out. When my FI sees me walking down the aisle I don't want him to be distracted by some other womans boobies.

 

We are having a sunset wedding at a private restaurant on the beach so hopefully we can avoid this kind of thing.

I went to a wedding last summer that had me swearing the whole time. It was a girl I went to high school with, who I hadn't seen but a few times since. She got married at this place called "The Lakes" - which were more like swamps. The ceremony was set on a hill so when you leaned slightly to one side, your chair almost tipped over. They stood in a gazebo to get married and the Groom was so tall, you couldn't see his head. They had Michael Bolton music blaring from a speaker on the top of the building. The preacher said the wrong names. No alcohol at the reception and they had us sitting at a table in the corner down a hallway, so we couldn't see what was going on with the couple from our table.

 

Lets just say, we needed a couple of shots just to make it through that one. HORRIBLE!!!

 

The worst part, she offered her planning help with my wedding because she had planned this wedding for over 2 years!! Wow.

This one made me giggle. I would have totally laughed if I had been at that wedding. I say this because my FI is always pointing out other females boobs and commenting on them, "oh, those are nice." or "oh, wow, she needs a better bra." He is a total boob man. I think I would have to agree with you though, I DEFF want him looking at me and my boobs on our wedding day....I think he can handle that.

I went to a wedding where there was almost NO dancing, yet a huge dancefloor. The family was very religious and I guess they were against it. I totally got up there and shook it for one number though! cheesy.gif

I went to a wedding last summer and the mother of the bride didn't want the reception to be boring so she brought in a drama team to put on a murder mystery. The thing is none of the guests knew there was a murder mystery. Alot of people were freaked out when people were running around with fake blood.

Ok I have a good one. My DH cousin's wedding last summer was an 1 1/2 away in a town that had population some where around 72. The ceremony was nice... but the reception was at this old bar that had closed down and you got two tickets... and the beer cost 2 tickets... and they brought it in in a case. They had some liquor that was for the wedding party only. And some distant relative of the brides was stealing money out of the envelops til some kids saw him and told my hubby and his brother (they are tough guys, ha) Paper plates, plastic forks, a big roast and some slaw. Haha. But, I knew they didn't have much money so it was perfect. I was also laughing because my 2 sister in laws had never been that close to a cornfield before, and we had to get our pic taken by it, haha.

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
