Weddings are sacred days, but for better or for worse (in sickness and in health…) there always tend to be a few bloopers that inevitably occur at every big day. From a too-drunk guest to weather mishaps, the stories we leave weddings with are always one for the books. Check out a few excerpts from our Shecky’s staffers below!
“Back in Australia, the company I worked for filmed a lot of weddings professionally. I was filming at this wedding at Q1, which is a fancy tower and resort on the Gold Coast. They were doing the photos around the pool area, and it was a big group, so I needed to keep stepping back so that I could get them all in the frame. Unfortunately, I stepped a little too far back and fell straight into the pool. Later that night, I thought I caught some cute girl checking me out, but when I think about it now, it seems less likely that she was thinking, ‘Oh look at that cutie,’ and more thinking, ‘Oh that’s the idiot videographer who fell into the pool. Oh and look, there’s still water dripping out of his shoes.’”
“A thunderstorm broke out while my wedding party was driving from the church to a nearby park to have pictures taken. As we rolled to a stop in a parking lot to wait for the rain to stop, a bolt of lightning struck a nearby tree, and it crashed to the ground about three feet in front of our limousine. Luckily, no one was hurt—but the marriage ended in divorce eight years later. Maybe it was a sign from above?”
“My one friend was drunk at my other friend’s super-fancy wedding reception. She started making out with one of our mutual guy friends on the dance floor, passionately (and she was a bridesmaid!). But this wasn’t a one-time thing—the same thing happened at the next wedding we went to. She had a few drinks, her and this same guy started kissing!”
“It was a classic case of younger sister gets married before older sister. The older sister was also the MOH so had to make a toast during the reception. Though it went off much better than anyone had anticipated (read: we were all white-knuckled and with clenched jaws the entire time), it wasn’t without its (drunken) self-deprecating jabs at being single. Boy, was everyone happy to drink after that toast.”
“My friend was tipsy and really excited for the bouquet toss—or what she THOUGHT was the bouquet toss. All of us look over, and see her in a crowd of guys fighting to grab the GARTER, not the bouquet. When she came back to our table, she still had no idea that she’d went to the ‘throwing’ for the opposite sex.”
