There are a few threads in classics about this

LineysRun Wed 25-Oct-17 23:11:56

There's been a few threads on this relatively recently, if you want to look - very funny stories, a lot of them - but sadly many posters' posts have made it into the Daily Mail etc without their permission or knowledge, just to warn peeps.

I had a pair of guests who were swingers and spent most of the evening do trying to recruit!

They didn't succeed.

TitaniasCloset Wed 25-Oct-17 23:13:53

Oh no! Don't spoil it! I loved the funeral thread recently and a wedding version sounds most entertaining and a very good thing grin

crumpledwand Wed 25-Oct-17 23:14:46

How to posts end up there? Also how to I find classical posts? Sorry not very good with this

LineysRun Wed 25-Oct-17 23:14:53

Yeah but you know, maybe don't be too identifying?

A friend (the bride)'s grandmother keeled over and died just as the caterers were bringing the food out. Short reception.

My step grandmother giving my very elderly, wheelchair bound grandpa a lap dance.
He loved every minute. Not one of their 8 children enjoyed it.

To another sons wedding she wore an entirely see through dress, and no bra. She did look good though.

crumpledwand Wed 25-Oct-17 23:17:42

Ahh I see what you mean!! Id be interested to read the funeral one. I've only realised in the last couple if years now hard work family can be and why some family avoided others because of stuff that happened at family get togethers i find it fascinating

Mrs knackered shockShe sounds a riot, you could probably fill a whole thread just with stories about her.

Well, worst behaviour I know of, though I didn’t actually witness it, was regarding an ex ex ex bf of mine, years before I met him. His new wife shagged the best man, at her own wedding to my ex ex ex bf, in a ‘broom’ cupboard, at their reception. They didn’t get caught at the time but she admitted to it when their marriage was annulled six months later. Apparently she’d been shagging him all throughout their ‘relationship’. He was my ex bf’s best mate too, or so he thought.

Thanks lineys reading it now grin

I used to work in a pub with a large function room. :D

Mostly it was just very drunk people and people bringing in "presents" that look suspiciously like a wrapped box of carling or a gift bag with a bottle in.

My worst ever was the Irish traveller wedding we had. Who the fuck booked it I do not know.

About a week before people were warning us "nail everything down" etc, and I just thought, "don't be so horrible, that's so prejudiced, they're probably lovely people."

They were not lovely people.

Some of the incidents were:

* We had multiple kids (I mean under 10 years old) on red bulls all day. And I mean from lunch time till midnight. You can imagine.

* We had to wedge the bar doors closed to stop the kids running behind the bars to nick things. And we had to move all crisps, bottles and charity boxes out of reach for same reason.

* Multiple blokes were pissing outside/on the decking.

* One of the other bar maids got accidentally passed a little bag of pills that the bloke had left wrapped in his HUGE wedge of notes. She just passed it back to him . . .

* General fighting and arguments all day long

* A couple having sex by the bins outside

* They all ordered taxis but none of them paid for them so we had about 10 people left at about 1am that no taxi firm would come for. I got kicked in the shins by a little kid and sworn at because I wouldn't let them nick the tablecloths because they had no coats. They asked all of us multiple times for lifts.

Me: "I don't drive." Them: "Can't you phone your bloke to come give us a lift? We'll pay him."

They badgered and pestered and wouldn't leave until finally the police were called.

Who gave them all a lift home.

Next day we found loads of empty bottles outside, a few dumped nappies, a blocked toilet (blocked with nappies) and a pair of knickers left outside by the bins.

I saw (and subsequently attended to) a drunk man fall into a fire at a wedding reception.

Birdsgottafly Thu 26-Oct-17 00:33:21

I was at a family friends Wedding and as we were walking outside, behind a large shrub one of the other guests was bragging to his mate what he had managed to nick off the tables when people put their bags etc down. He had also been swiping drinks.

It was my DPs engraved, silver, rare Zippo, that he was admiring, that made us take notice of him.

We got the lighter back, but he left very quickly and we didn't want to upset the B&G.

Talk to your partner about drinking too much and agree to be VERY CAREFUL. A guest making an arse of themselves is one thing. You or your groom looking like fools is another.

abbsisspartacus Thu 26-Oct-17 01:35:38

Bride chasing groom down the road with a knife police called

Kids bouncing all over the car of my stepmoms sister stepmom plead ignorance to who it was they were my cousins

Kids making pepper sandwiches to serve to the guests and generally wrecking the buffet

MrsOverTheRoad Thu 26-Oct-17 02:10:39

Gosh. My story of a rather large woman dancing on the tables at a very sedate wedding is nothing!

She was pissed and everyone else was not...she climbed up on the rickety shabby-chic old farm tables and proceeded to stomp up and down in her platforms whilst people sat at them agape.

Then she stomped so hard, the table collapsed beneath her and she crashed to the ground.

Whereupon she began screaming that everyone hated her.

Drunk photographer was quite amusing

farangatang Thu 26-Oct-17 02:50:31

anon shock

I've obviously lived a very sheltered life....!!

Dippydippydora Thu 26-Oct-17 03:27:36

Went to a wedding were a night guest choose to make themselves centre of attention by basicly preforming lap dances to all her male friends, screaming while she was dancing and dancing so wildly thrashing her arms about that no one else dare go on the dancefloor. This was in front of her kids.
Mind you the wedding was my cousin and his wife who we used to be friendly with who have since turned out to be complete using toxic bastards so hey ho

citychick Thu 26-Oct-17 03:31:25

One page in and I'm already shock!

I must have very well behaved family and friends.
I've never actually witnessed anything, but have heard of the usual stories of 3 weddings running at the same time in same hotel, guests swapping weddings for better dancing/ buffet whatever. Then a good old fight at the end to finish off the evening.

I did once, decades ago, waitress at a Free Church Wedding. Toasts made from a choice of apple juice, orange juice or pineapple juice ( alcohol forbidden).Then the music had to be kept so low you could barely hear it. Bride and groom looked unwashed, along with most of their guests. The whole event was over by 9pm. It is memorable because it was possibly one of the dullest events I've ever attended.

Each to their own. a fight would have been welcome relief from the boredom

Good luck OP. Congrats on your up and coming nuptials.

Brothers wedding. Brother and wife not the most well balanced of people. So some of the guests including the bridesmaid weren’t either.

The bridesmaid had a massive barney with her bf. After going to bed, Dh and I heard her shouting and screaming and he went to investigate. She had blood running down her face, with a nasty cut to the side of her head and covered in mud. We called an ambulance because we were concerned about the cut on her face and her mental health as she was in a lot of distress, had also fallen down the stairs etc. The boyfriend had driven off and she’d tried to stop him, falling over in the car park. I think she’d also hurt her ankle but it was years ago.

The ambulance came, assessed her, patched her up and left. I stayed with her all night while she drunk cried about her bf. So no sleep. The next day we drove her home to his house as they were living together. Then drove to take the shuttle as we lived abroad. Not so much as a thank you from anyone including brother and wife.

When we told the venue owners we called an ambulance, they had a go at us for not having told them. Idiots it was 3 o’clock in the fucking morning! Apparently it’s policy, how wwere we were supposed to know about that!
