17 of the Most Awkward Weddings Ever

A blessing turned into a rant about North Korea
17 of the Most Awkward Weddings Ever

Though weddings are supposed to be about the two people getting married, the event occasionally devolves into something else entirely. Like the time someone’s uncle was supposed to do a simple blessing over the dinner and ended up going on a four-minute rant about North Korea. And while, sure, there’s a lot to say about North Korea, a wedding reception almost certainly isn’t the place for it. 

Redditors have walked down the aisle and vowed that these are the most awkward things they’ve experienced at a wedding, and some of their stories really take the (wedding) cake. 

PernOwnin 0 6y 1. The best man took a solid 2 minutes of his speech talking about how he had a huge crush on the bride. 2. different wedding the best man did a compare and contrast of the groom and the brides ex boyfriend. The groom did not come out on top in this compare and contrast. Pro-tip: find better best men. ... 2.6k
TheBeardedBeast97 . 5y My uncle was supposed to do a blessing for the dinner. Ended up talking about North Korea and how they better not travel there for their honey moon. No one laughed, it was a very awkward 4 minutes. ... 251
SpoonwoodTangle . . 5y The officiant (not sure if they were a priest or whatnot) forgot to say you may be seated before going through the ceremony and exchange of vows. The crowd didn't know what to do and just kept standing... through the whole ceremony. ... 1.5k
Hamsternoir . 5y After the ceremony everyone got up except one very old and frail looking lady who it transpired had passed away. The reception was rather subdued. ... 3.3k
oldsluggy 5y Friend's wedding, in the middle of the vows when they reached the through sickness and health section, the pastor started going off on his life story - how he has had three wives and they all died horribly and so it's important to really mean the through sickness bit. Then at the end of the wedding, before he announced them as a couple, he asked his fourth wife to stand up. Really weird, everyone was looking around at each other to see if it was a joke or not. Groom was pretty pissed off ... 460
bpain454 . . 5y Went to a wedding where the first kiss as husband and wife was literally their first kiss. She went for the quick peck and he went for the dog licking it's bowl clean style kiss. She was not happy about it. ... 3.4k
bimalkumarji . 5y Wedding photographer here. Easily the worst was when the father of the groom, apparently entirely sober, gave a 10-minute toast that devolved into openly complaining that his son got to have sex with the bride and he didn't. And this wasn't a mistimed joke about how pretty she was, this was a full-on lament about growing old and how women didn't find him attractive anymore and that all he wanted was to take his daughter-in-law to bed. I got a few photos of the bride and groom reacting in horror to this and then I went and
BighouseJD . 6y Normal wedding for a very religious couple. Got to the reception and the food was all sandwich trays from Walmart. When it came time to dance, they put on what was probably a Now That's What I Call 90's cd (this was in 2008ish) and the first song was Semi-Charmed Life (Doo doo doo, do doodoodoo). A few seconds in, the mother of the bride turns off the CD player (yeah) and puts in a CD with children's bible songs. About a minute later SCL comes back on, then off, then children's songs. Repeat this about two or
 . 5y My dad was the best man at a low key wedding. We went to a restaurant after and in his speech he thanked the father of the bride for paying for the meal, and it turned out we were all paying for our own meals. The father of the bride was mortified and so was my dad. ... 4k
LostTheWayILikelt - 6y The reception was at an Olive Garden. No reservations or heads up for the restaurant beforehand. First dance was sung on a karaoke machine. ... 1.7k
blueeyesredlipstick - by Went to one wedding where the food didn't get served until 11:30pm because of some mistake with the kitchen. It was a steady decline of starving people really trying not to ruin the wedding while also wanting to know when the fuck they were gonna get fed, while people got over-the-top plastered because they were drinking alcohol on an empty stomach. ... 1.2k
Gritch . 5y Saw a groom open up gifts and cards during the wedding, and counting the money and calling people out on how much the gave them. Also saw his friend, maybe ex-friend now, grab the money he gave him and leave. Was awesome to see. ... 5k
bebemochi . 6y In one, almost the entire bride's family left right after the ceremony because she had the audacity to wear a red dress. In the other, almost the entire bride's family left right after the ceremony because she had the audacity to marry a man with long hair. ... 1k
LudovicoSpecs . 6y Mafia wedding. I was in the band. The bridge and groom looked like they were gonna kill each other when they were feeding each other the cake and men on either side jumped up from their seats to settle everyone down and pull them apart after they SHOVED the cake into each others' faces. Then the grandpa sat in a chair and basically a receiving line formed for him. A limo pulled up outside and he left. All the guests cleared out once he left. Nobody gave a shit the reception was still going. ... 1.2k
 5y Groomsman had a little too much vodka and decided to propel himself through a tempered glass door head- first. Turns out tempered glass is really hard to break. His limp body proceeded to slide down a flight of cement stairs. As I was calling the ambulance a bridesmaid was screaming in my face about how / was 'going to ruin the wedding and how he would be 'just fine' (as he twitched and drooled in my lap - completely sauced, concussed, and a good ounce stupider than he was five minutes before). We all went out for drinks after they
Almost_a_Full_Moon 6y I was a banquet manager at a hotel for years, and have worked hundreds of weddings. Worst one by far: The bride was AT LEAST 20 years younger than the groom, almost definitely an arranged marriage. Only about 20 people were invited to the reception, and the only decoration was a shitty quality massive blown up picture of the bride and groom in the shape of a heart. When the bride and groom walked into the room, someone put Black Eyed Peas Tonight's Going to be a Good Night on the CD player. Then the song played again,
kazshow . 5y Wedding for my second cousin (the bride). The best man was absolutely wasted and was giving his speech. About halfway through, he says the bride's name and looks at her and loses his train of thought and just goes God you're just so sexy, I wish I would've fucked you first. ... 3.2k
