15. Even the best brides go crazy sometimes.

At some point you'll seriously wonder how you're friends with this person.

16. Not rolling your eyes when the bride tells you she wants to flash mob down the aisle.

Your vision might be permanently destroyed.

19. Writing a meaningful speech.

The groom isn't the only one who gets intimate with the bride on the big day.

21. Keeping the bride's feuding family members from ruining the wedding.

22. Drunk groomsmen.

Group photos with guys who can't stand up are always a blast.

23. Drunk bridesmaids.


Great. Someone else to help in the bathroom.

24. Uncomfortable shoes.

But at least they're all perfectly dyed to match!

25. Crying off your makeup because you're so happy for the newlyweds.
