What's the worst thing that could happen to you on your wedding day?
Posted: Aug 29, 2008 3:11 PM

I posted this on the married board as well.

I'm already married so this is the worst thing that happened to us on our wedding day.

The worst thing that happened to us on our wedding day was that his Best Man forgot my wedding band.

I was doing pretty good until then.

His family really tried to help out though. They tried getting all the girls together and going through wedding bands to see if any of them fit me so we could use it for the ceremony. It was nice but none of them fit and I really only wanted to use my own wedding band.

We ended up just using my engagement ring for the ceremony. I was really nervous handing it over. But it worked out well. And when we got back to the beach house we were staying at, my hubby made sure he put it on me.

Also, hubby's mom showed up AFTER the ceremony was over and she was really upset about it but by that time I was just so happy to have it finally over and done and we were finally husband/wife!

One of my greatest fears is that one our parents (who are all older) might have a significant health event that prevents them from attending.  FH's father has had two-heart related events in the last year and my Mom is going in for major back surgery just 3-weeks before the wedding.

I think I can handle pretty much anything other than something happening to a family just before the wedding.

The worst that could have happened was for my husband not to have shown up. 

The second thing would have been that my father's wife who has alzheimers got a little confused and became upset when she couldn't find him.  He was in the back waiting to escort me down the aisle.

The worst thing that happened on my wedding day was the lady that I ordered flowers from didn't understand what I wanted at all... and she forgot to make the bouquet for the bouquest toss event.... I was a little disappointment but I called the main company and they got us one right away. Oh yes, I threw up too at the end of the night...too much wine. Everything else was great though, it was sooooo much fun!

Oh yeah I'd totally agree that if my husband didn't show up I'd be one pissed chick!

I forgot to add that EH yelled at me (via phone) right before the ceremony b/c he got confused on where we were dressing. He had to get dressed in the teeny bathroom downstairs while me and my girls got dressed upstairs.

That he does not show up. That the vender's go out of business. And i spill red wine all over the front of my dress!! let alone anything on my dress that wont come out

 Lets not all get caught up in our wedding. Remember we should not only be planning for a our wedding but more so we should be planning for  our marriage. More so then fighting over shades of peach, tuxs, cake flavors and only god knows what else. Because the next morning it is over, guests are gone the flowers have died the cake well lets face it 1/2 of it was tossed out. Cinderella is still a maid, the limo is now a pumpkin And there is life to face ok after wild crazy monkey sex for 7 nights straight, lets not kid out selfs there are priorities After its all gone there's still bills to pay and a job to go back to

It's one of those weird family traditions on my mom's side.  Completely unplannable, and yet it seems to happen a lot. (WHY I do not know.)

I got married on a Saturday, but Friday I had to go to a great aunt's funeral (one who I did actually know).  My mother had a funeral the day before HER wedding.  My grandmother and my aunt, the same.  Again, it is one of those freaky things that happens in our family.

I was seriously thinking it was a bad sign, but then my mom told me about our weird, unplannable, tradition.  So I decided it wasn't the hugely bad omen I had thought it was.

Granted, I did get divorced after  16 months. 

And hopefully, we can BELAY that  tradition for my #2!

I guess the worst thing that could've happened is I tripped walking down the isle.... or fell coming down the stairs.  Yep, anything to do with falling would've been bad!

Or, the band could sing Help Me Make It Through the Night.... oh wait, that actually happened....

man WEEKS leading up to the wedding I had a reoccuring nightmare we forgot the license and we're officially married. I put my MOH in charge of the license and she brough it safely to the ceremony site. THEN I had to had it over to one of EH's younger cousins so she could give it to the officiant. I gave her dagger eyes and said "Please make sure this gets to him. I've had nightmares about us losing this." Everything went fine and we're legally married but I feel I owe my life to her now.

Yeah, I have to agree with the other ladies about FH not showing up. I think that would be the worst thing that could happen. Another thing that I think would be horrible would be to faint during the ceremony. I love watching America's Funniest Home Videos and they have had videos of people fainting during their wedding ceremony. I never thought that it was very funny. I think it would be horrible. Or to feel nauseous while walking down the aisle and end up needing to throw up. That would be bad.....

Hi mrspinky!

The worst thing didn't happen, (he didn't leave me!), but man the best man's speech sucked. I can't even remember half of it. The worst part of it was that he recognized Dean's Mom as having spent all this time and energy on the "food layout". While she did do a trememdous amount of work, (she's 68), my aunt spent over $7,000 on food preparation and days and days of labor and preparation. She was never mentioned. My Aunt came up to me and said, "I hope your guests enjoy the food". I was so embarrassed by his speech! We had the DJ make a special announcement and had all the "caterers" stand!

(I did feel bad about his hand shaking so bad, though!)

The WORST thing that could possibly have happened? Well - I suppose the absolute WORST thing wouldhave been if me, my Groom, the vendors, and all the Guest spontaneously combusted and then randomly died during our wedding. Yeah  - Im guessing that would kinda suck.

In reality - the officiant was late and I PANICKED and so did my mom. We had her as a "co officiant" and she wrote a reading about us etc - so when he was late she was sooo scared that SHE would have to perform our ceremony and she had NO CLUE how to do that LOL. It was sort of funny seeing the look of absolute panic on her face. Once he got there though, all was awesome.

How embarrassing!

Kelley - Did you officiant ever tell you why he was late? Or offer some kind of comfort? I don't know WHAT I would have done if officiant hadn't have shown up. I loved our officiant. He was wonderful!
