Outrageous Wedding Disaster Stories

Your Most Outrageous Wedding Disaster Stories!

When I asked you guys to share the worst wedding disaster stories you know, you really brought your A game. From fainting grooms, to falling out hairpieces, to ringing phones, lots of crazy stuff has gone down at the alter and later at the reception. Below are some of your wedding nightmare stories that could make even the coolest bride-to-be lose sleep.

I was at a wedding not long ago where the bride was wearing a hairpiece that fell off during the ceremony, the veil pulled it back on her head and then to the floor before the maid of honor (or anyone) realized what was happening. — socalbeachgal

Not a disaster, but the last wedding I went to the groom's cell phone started ringing in the middle of the ceremony. Of all people. It made for a good laugh. — Pistil


My friend's extremely old great-grandmother, we're talking 101 years old, died in the lounge outside of the reception hall. That was the biggest disaster considering they were close, and all of the woman's kids were there. That was just terrible. She was a really feisty woman, so it was a shock that she died at that time. — Chrstne

On my cousin's wedding, the groom fainted right in front of the altar, in the middle of the service. That was weird. — catita85

To see the rest,


At my best friend's wedding, her younger sister spilled a Diet Coke down the front of her dress, luckily she was the most laid-back bride I've ever encountered so it wasn't the end of the world — we caught the spill in time and were able to get it out — thank god! — AlexisSF

At my wedding, the caterer sliced his hand open while cooking oysters on the grill and had to go to the emergency room. All of the oysters burned while sitting on the grill unattended and my dad (who didn't realize the chef had gone MIA) was going around telling everyone the oysters had been stolen since they didn't seem to be coming out of the kitchen. — KWM

One in particular that stands out is about a couple who decided to release doves at the wedding. Well, they released the doves and things seemed fine . . . until one flew into a car and died in front of everyone. —danakscully64

Oh, and does that mean their marriage is doomed from the start? I would think death at a wedding is a bad omen. Eek!

I agree weffie. It happened on the corner of a pretty busy intersection (in front of a Catholic church). The worst is people who use fish in the centerpieces, not even half of them make it out alive. I'm just not a fan of using animals this way, too dangerous.

That last one is brutal. I wish people would stick to rural areas if they must insist on exploiting pigeons for their entertainment :(
