Oh the tackywedding.com site is great! I just canâ€™t believe people would do those things!
I donâ€™t have a good wedding story like everyone else, but my FI and I have said that we wonâ€™t do the bouquet and garter toss at our wedding. We had a bad experience at a wedding last year when we were screamed at and told we ruined the wedding when we didnâ€™t want to get and stand in front of 300 people for the bouquet and garter toss. Of course we werenâ€™t the only ones they screamed at, there were two other couples they yelled at, one was engaged and the other was dating for 10 years. And one of the 2 women doing the yelling, one was MOG and the other the groomâ€™s sister, the groomâ€™s sister was engaged and she was refusing to stand up there but yelled at everyone else to go up there (even the DJ told the grooms sister she should stand up there and she gave the DJ a face that would have scared the devil)!!! We both donâ€™t like to be the center of attention, hence the 20 person DW and not a 200 person wedding at home. So we now disappear when that part of the wedding comes up.
What's something you saw at a wedding that made you swear...

Groom gives speech and says - I'm so glad that others felt you weren't good enough to marry so that you were there when I came along. WTF?!? He alluded to her being "a little big" " a little boring" etc and all the while she had tears of JOY in her eyes when he was giving his speech. Hell, what do I know, they have like ten cats between them and play online internet games all day and night long. Seriously, they are both pasty white from no sun!

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've been to THREE potluck weddings. Yes, they do exist... not sure how they still are, but it totally creeps me out to eat food from someone's house I don't know. No thank you!
First bad wedding, I was a BM in my cousin's wedding. She was only 18 at the time marrying a guy 10 years older. She picked out dresses made of pure lycra which were the most unflattering dresses possible. I almost wanted to say no way, but she bought them so I toughed it out. Yes, I looked like a stuffed sausage rolled in silver glitter. If I had a picture, I would TOTALLY post it for you all to see.
Then her reception was at a VFW hall complete with balloons, streamers, a glittery homemade "Congratulations" sign made on butcher paper. Basically, it looked like a HS homecoming dance. The food was yes- potluck, but they provided kegs full of beer. However, the party was so lame, no one stayed and left early.
But get this- she told me a few months before the wedding that she blew through her budget and didn't have any money left. I asked to see her receipts to help her budget it all out. She had spent $7k at that point and still ended up with a homecoming dance wedding. I know her dress was $2500, but she bought so much little shit along the way that it ended up being nothing more than a turd sandwich. Poor thing didn't know any better.
One of my DH's friends was pretty bad too. They had their wedding in the middle of the summer, right in the hottest part of the day. The ceremony was in FULL sunlight and the minister went on and on. He would read out of the bible and then give a sermon on the section. Older people were picking their chairs up during the middle of the ceremony and moving far away into the shade. All the groomsmen were in full tuxes, including my DH, who looked like he was going to pass out from the heat. I ended up sweating so bad, I was worried to get up and have butt sweat.
When the ceremony finally concluded, the minister asked everyone to pick up their chair and carry it up hill to the reception site. The couple was too cheap to rent chairs for both spaces, so their bright idea was "let's just have everyone carry their chair and only pay for half the amount we actually need!" So these poor, faintish old people couldn't even carry theirs so I had to make multiple trips to help and poor DH was told before the ceremony started that he was in charge of moving all those that didn't get moved by others. So I helped him carry chair after chair up this freaking, grassy hill.
Once we finally get done, everyone was well into their meal so DH and I sat down and tried to eat something quickly. After sitting for a bit, the bride's mom- who I don't know at all- came up to me and asked if I could help them serve, clean up and keep everything stocked during the wedding because she was too busy. Somehow I ended up being waitstaff and was totally not wearing proper shoes for that amount of work. Basically, by the time it was over I was ready to kill someone. Since DH was a groomsman, he told me that he had to stay to help and pack everything up- including those damn chairs! So yep, I helped with that too. I was tempted to send the couple a bill for my services. I didn't even get the chance to earn tips.
