The time when the caterer was fired for being high: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF AMC "The bride and groom were delayed getting introduced at the reception. The bride thinks it’s because we were letting people get seated, but really it was because her father-in-law was running around setting up their cupcakes because the catering company had to fire an employee on the spot for being high."—smellykellyx3 3. The time when the dates got messed up: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Nickelodeon "I am a wedding planner who just got married this past month. I messed up the date on my own wedding day. Yup, I do this for a living and I missed that the date was wrong on MONTHS of emails. My cake was delivered to the venue the day before my wedding. Moral of the story: never be your own client."—HeyItsTheShanster 4. The time when the cake fell apart: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Walt Disney "The cake people decided the best way to hold together a three-tier wedding cake was by using bendy straws instead of metal rods as supports in the cake. BENDY STRAWS. This wasn't even a small, podunk operation. It was a local chain company that many people have used and recommended. One of the cake tiers slid off and the bakers had already left the venue, so the wonderful catering company and venue staff did their best to put it back together and used extra roses to hide the damage."—MrSunshoes 5. The time when the wedding planner had to tackle the mother of the bride: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF NBC "Even though the mother of the bride had been uninvited, the horrid beast still showed up. She was stomping up the hallway, wearing — I kid you not — a wedding dress. She didn't even make it to the reception hallway. The WEDDING PLANNER JUMPED HER LIKE A SECRET SERVICE AGENT! I don't even know where he came from. One moment, mean lady, next moment, wedding planner silent-ninja strike! He dragged her out so fast that us maids and the groomsmen didn't even have time to even gasp. To this day, the bride and groom don't know." 6. The time when the flowers froze: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Walt Disney "The wedding was in the middle of winter and not in our town, so we picked up the flowers the night before and left them in buckets of water. I didn't realize this, but temperatures that night dropped to -12°C! The next morning when I went to retrieve the flowers, they were frozen solid in their buckets. Luckily, when I got to the venue, the wedding planner grabbed every available hair dryer and had me, my father, and himself defrosting the flowers before the wedding. To this day, my wife still doesn't know."—criminalsunrise 7. The time when grandpa went missing: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Disney Channel "The bride's grandfather wasn’t there for the ceremony. He got lost after insisting he knew the way and didn’t need to follow anyone from the hotel and ended up not making it in time. He made it for the reception and the bride never noticed his absence in the audience during the vows."—kaybeaner 8. The time when there was a typo on the invitations: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Hulu "The save-the-dates and invitations were very intricate and time-consuming. I was so focused on them looking good that I didn't notice that the bride's name was misspelled on over 60 of the STDs. Luckily, I caught it and fixed it before I sent them out!"—TechniChara 9. The time when grandpa got sick: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF NBC "Our grandfather had a mild stroke right in the middle of the vows. He's usually pretty loud and a touch belligerent, but it became obvious something wasn't right while we were having the formal photos done. With barely a word, the wedding planner booked a taxi for my parents to take him to the hospital nearby to have him checked over quickly, promising to keep an eye on us kids. Gramps ended up being just fine, and even jokes that it was the only way of getting out of giving a speech. The whole situation was dealt with with such professionalism and care, and made what could have been a nightmare so much less stressful."—SevasaurusRex 10. The time when the guest wanted a plus one: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Bravo "The night before the wedding, a guest asked if he could bring his girlfriend. So, the night before and the day of, I moved around the seating plan and ordered an extra plate of food. It ended up being all for nothing because neither of them showed up."—half-past-shoe 11. The time when the brides had the same dress: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Marvel "Back in 2006, I worked at a large venue in a major city that had upwards of five weddings a night. One night, all four brides were wearing the exact same dress from David's Bridal — the popular one with the apple red trim. Two of the brides didn't care, but the other two brides were upset that the other one was wearing their dress, so I spent most of the evening making sure they didn't run into one another."—mrsproffessormdesq 12. The time when the groomsman was late: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF Walt Disney "One of the groomsmen — who also happened to be walking the bride down the aisle — couldn't get out of work the day of the wedding. He ended up arriving 15 minutes before the ceremony and the bride was none the wiser."—Genghis_Chong 13. The time when the groomsman was missing: Tap to play or pause GIF Tap to play or pause GIF NBC "The groom was an hour and a half late to the wedding because the best man got drunk and passed out the night before and was nowhere to be found."—geckosrus Do you have any stressful wedding stories?
