Someone on Reddit recently asked, “Has anyone ever been to a wedding where someone actually objected, and if so, how did that go?” Few people answered directly, but the question prompted plenty of crazy wedding horror stories. Here are 10 that stood out.
1. Groom Discovers Bride Cheated Two Days Before Wedding
Surely, there can’t be many things in life worse than finding out two days before your wedding that your bride-to-be is cheating on you? Sadly, that’s exactly the tale told in the most upvoted comment on Reddit:
“Groom found out that bride was cheating two days before the wedding day. He spilled the beans while exchanging the vows.”
As Spideylafamilia noted in response, “Damnnn! That’s some TV show level ****.”
2. Bride Finds Out Groom’s Cheating, Ditches Wedding After the Pre-Ceremony
Numerous people had similar wedding tales that involved one party cheating on the other. However, one of the most notable examples came from dusmeyedin, who described a would-be bride who’d actually turned to Reddit for advice after discovering her future hubby had been unfaithful. They wrote:
“There was a Redditor who was the bride in her wedding, and she discovered that her groom was cheating on her. She took reddit’s suggestion that she slide in a photograph of them together, into the rotating montages at the pre-ceremony. She did that and bailed on the rest of the wedding ceremony.”
3. Grandmother Objects, Marriage Ends In Divorce
One of the closest actual answers to the original question came from someone who’d been at their Uncle’s wedding. Here’s what happened:
“My uncle was getting married. Small, just a handful of family and a minister. I was videotaping. My grandmother was not into it at all. With each line spoken by the minister, she had a cutting, sarcastic response. I could not believe it. It was so unlike her. When that part came up, she said “I object. But does it really matter? They are going to do it anyway.” The minister just ignored her and proceeded, business as usual. They were divorced within a year.”
4. Girlfriend Ditches a Surprise Proposal and Wedding
Imagine going to a birthday party with your boyfriend. At some point in the evening, everything stops, he turns around, and asks you to marry them out of nowhere. Not only that, but they want you to marry them literally right there and then. What would you do? One Redditor described how one girl responded when it happened to her:
“A friend of mine has a band that plays lots of weddings and other parties. They were hired for a birthday party that turned out to be a surprise wedding. The guy surprised his gf with a proposal and wanted to have a wedding ceremony then and there. She said no and left.”
5. Groom Jokes About Bride’s Dead Ex In Vows
We get it, writing vows can’t be easy. But, surely – suuuurely – there had to be something better to say than this? Redditor Lsd365 “was at one where the Groom thanked the Bride’s Ex for dying as his loss was my gain. Didn’t help the sons of his bridge and ex were in attendance.”
6. The Maid of Honor “Stepped In” At the Last Moment
You’re in love. Happy as can be. And you’re about to marry your best friend, with your other best friend present as your Maid of Honor. That was exactly the case for one bride-to-be until things went south…fast. Redditor FDS_MTG tells the story:
“I had a friend who was a minister, and the subject came up if he asked the question during ceremonies he officiated. He laughed and said no way. He basically tells the couple not to include it because it only invites a moment of anxiety at best, misery at worst.
His best story (and one of the reasons he stopped including the question) was a couple where the lead-up to the wedding, the couple was obviously in love. The bride-to-be was very smiley and happy. Day of the wedding she’s stone faced. He knows something is up because he’s never seen her like this and he asks if she is ok. “I’m fine.” Right before the service he asks again. “I’m fine.”
He gets to the question, “Does anyone object to this union?”
The bride reaches over, grabs the maid of honor, shoves her into the bride’s spot and says, “You’re ******** him, you marry him.” And then stormed out of the church.”
7. The Mother Who Didn’t Like Her Future Daughter-In-Law
One poor guy had to suffer his mother’s wrath. Not that it was directed at him, though. As Redditor Nebelhund explained, it was straight at his future wife:
“At his rehearsal dinner a co-workers mother’s toast included that his soon to be wife was a “damn dirty ***** who wasn’t good enough” for her son. Folks not happy. (Video ended so didn’t see the whole thing.) At wedding which I attended his mom started to say something at the “speak now” part but was silenced by her daughter. Mom left and didn’t see the rest of the ceremony.”
8. The Daughter Who Screamed “Mom Don’t Marry Him!”
Another tale of an actual wedding objection came from Reddit user Rabies182. They wrote:
“A woman, in her 20s at the time, objected to her mom marrying my uncle. So she started yelling, “Mom don’t marry him!” during the ceremony. The ceremony proceeded and some family on the mom’s side lead the daughter away to quit interrupting. I don’t blame her-my uncle was a lying, lazy *******. The marriage didn’t last.”
9. The Fiancé Who Was Already Married
According to one Redditor, their aunt’s fiancé “conveniently” forgot they were already married – a fact that only came to light after someone in the audience waved the wedding certificate to prove it. We love that she waited until the very last moment to say something…
“My aunties fiance was already married (lady stood up waving marriage cert) so wedding didn’t go ahead. The reception was on a long boat so we still went to that. The fiance went back to home country to sort it out and never came back.
10. The Groom Who Said “I Do” As a Joke
One groom thought he was being funny when he said “I do” to the question about objections. Unfortunately for him – and his bride to be – it didn’t quite land as he’d wanted. Redditor nathcrowley said:
“A relative visited one ceremony where it was asked if anyone objects, and the groom decided it’s a good time for a joke and said “I do”. The lady who was going to marry the couple just turned and left. They had to go through all the paperwork again and change the date. Got married, divorced in like three years if I remember correctly.”
