3 Wild Wedding After Party Stories You Must Read to Believe

Showers & Parties

After the party, it's the after party! For many young wild and free couples today, when the wedding reception ends, the real shenanigans are just getting started. Unfortunately, what happens at the after party doesn't always stay at the after party and these stories are living proof of that.

From the wedding DJ turned club DJ that tried to strike up a bromance with the groom, to the guest that did drugs with the bride's uncle in the bathroom, we couldn't make these wild wedding after party tales up.

The DJ drunk texted my husband
"Our wedding DJ also happened to be a DJ at a lot of clubs around the city, and wound up hooking us up with a last-minute connection for a table at one of the spots he worked at, which was super nice. As the night went on, we saw that he was actually spinning there. My husband went up to him, and he immediately offered him his vape pen and told him to order a round of jager bombs on his tab. Our other friend said they passed him on the street walking to the after party earlier, and he offered them some coke (the drug), so random. The DJ then proceeded to get my husband's number, and we didn't think anything of it until about 3am when we got a text from him saying that his girl had the next few days off work, and that we should all grab lunch. Obviously we were cracking up over this because what are the chances your wedding DJ becomes your after party DJ, buys you shots, then drunk texts you for a double date (that never happened, BTW)." — Olivia

A big fight broke out...in the lake
"We were married in a small town on a peninsula surrounded by a lake. A bet was made between a bunch of our male guests (my husband played rugby in college) as to whether or not anyone would wind up getting pushed or even jumping into the water. After the reception was over and everyone was getting ready to head to the bar for the after party, Michael, the guy who bet that no one would get in, was guarding the lake to make sure he won. Well, Donald, the guy who took the opposite bet, walked over and pushed Michael right in. Meanwhile one of my bridesmaids drunkenly pushed another one of our friends and has no recollection of doing it! Michael came out of the water swinging and started punching Donald, which led to a fight, which led to the cops arriving quickly. At this point yet another guest took off his clothes (willingly) and swam across the lake and back. Long story short, the cops were cool and actually gave my husband and I a ride downtown to the after party. On the way, we spotted a group of our rugby friends walking to the bar. The officer put on his sirens and pulled over to ask what they were doing as a joke. One of the guys must've been feeling very guilty, as he took off running in the opposite direction. The officer thought that was hilarious and just kept driving. Our friend eventually made it to the bar about an hour later." — Jennifer

My husband's friend did coke with my uncle
"OMG, so you know how everyone has that one crazy uncle? Well, mine showed up in full force at our wedding. Luckily, I didn't find out about his after party antics until later though. Anyway, in addition to my dad straight up passing out drunk on the sofa at the hotel bar we after partied at, apparently one of my husband's friends did lines of cocaine with the aforementioned crazy uncle in the bathroom. My husband also ended up getting too drunk to have wedding night sex, thanks to his boys buying him shots. It was an unforgettable night to say the least!" — Chelsea
