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

Recommended Posts

I almost forgot about the best trailer park wedding ever!!! I was a server at a hotel once and we had a wedding that was incredibly tacky. Just tacky decorations, it's hard to explain really. Most of the guests were completely wasted and quite rude. I left early that night but I found out the next day that the Mother of the groom was punched out be some other relative during the evening.....fryingpan.gif

 

Seriously....seriously!!!

 

Could you imagine?

I've seen a lot with all the weddings I've been to...the Oh @#$% award for me went to a beautiful bride that had a few too many drinks. She seemed fine for most of the day, but then in a span of 15 min. it all hit her. She was so drunk, she fell over while dancing - fortunately I was close by and caught her before she hit the floor. But, I wasn't able to catch her the other 6 times she fell. The last time was the last straw as she went face first so hard into the dance floor, shattering her drink glass. I thought she was going to be knocked out cold, or a complete bloody mess. Fortunately, she only had a small cut under her chin, and popped up ready for more drinks and dancing. Plus, she still had to cut the cake, and do the garter and bouquet tosses. The coordinator finally sped up the show and helped her through the last few events before having her make a speedy exit.

 

Moral of the story - make sure you can handle your liquor - at least at your own wedding.

Just because you are on a budget, doesn't mean you have to be tacky. I get calls at least once a week from brides who want their wedding catered for less than $10 per person! What kills me is that these are the people who still spend $3000 on the bar or will buy a $2000 wedding gown, they think food is the place to cut back.

 

I know this story is somewhere else but it is so crazy I have to post again!

 

We have a friend W. She has a bit of a problem with self control when she is drinking. Last summer another friend S had a beautiful outdoor wedding. Her entire conservative family flew in from Hong Kong. Not all of them spoke english.

 

Well, W proceeds to get beyond drunk. At one point she grabs S's dad and drags him out onto the dance floor and starts freak dancing up on him!

 

Later she had to pee, so she just hiked up her dress, scooted to the edge of her chair and went, right there under the dinner table!

Here's my trick for this one. If I am bartending and I see the bride or groom going down this road, I don't put alcohol in their drinks or I water them down as much as possible!

I'm telling you, I have a million wedding stories!

 

One was years sgo. I don't even think I was old enough to bartend, but I had a groom hit on me! He was so hammered, I don't know if he knew what he was doing. I think he was asking for one of the GMs like a let's go hang out kinda thing, but it didn't come off that way. He was all "So, what are you doin' later..." Wierdo! GM's GF got pissed and I don't know if she was talking about me but she gestured drunkenly in my general direction. She screamed at the top of her lungs "If you like her so much then go f**K her!" I was mortified! #1 we were in the middle of a wedding! #2 I was definitely a virgin at the time and shocked that someone would think I would do something like that! LOL

Ooh, another good one...

 

I don't know who the guy was, if he was a friend or relative. But he went around all night pretending to be retarded (sorry to be policially incorrect)! He was talking to all the girls getting them to kiss him on the cheek or dance with him. While they were dancing, he was feel them up!

 

I swear I couldn't make this stuff up if I was trying!

Erin you are so right about people who spend ridic amounts on some things and then skimp where its really obvious. You can get a really gorgeous dress for under $1000, and some might say even under $500 but that is up to personal opinion. Anyway paperplates and streamers in a crappy lunch room is not the place to skimp!

 

When I was with my ex, I went to white trash weddings with him all the time. They actually scared me out of the normal reception and into the DW. I think I realized that it is so obvious if you skimp that if you dont have $40K it will look it! I guess I could have done a VFW hall. Haha.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
