Despite all the careful planning that goes into weddings, there’s a lot that can go awry—just ask the people responding to Jimmy Fallon’s latest internet challenge!
The talk show host asked viewers to post their biggest wedding fails online using the hashtag #WeddingFail for a chance to have their story featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The request garnered thousands of responses on Twitter from brides, grooms, relatives, and service providers that have seen just about everything as far as wedding mishaps go, from terrible speeches and uncooperative ring bearers to slips and tumbles galore.
Even Fallon himself had a story to tell. “My friend got married on the beach and wanted to zip line to the altar,” he tweeted. “He didn’t test before and it turned out he was too heavy for the line. He was dragged through rocks and sand for the last 10 seconds. Ripped the pants off of his tux. #WeddingFail”
Read on for some of the best fails the hashtag sparked.
