  1. I am not married but was bridesmaid at my older brothers wedding. It was a lovely day - we (the bridesmaids) and the bride travelled by horse and cart to the church - stopping half way for one of the horses to drop it's load!

  4. a few years ago we went to a wedding where instead of getting a photographer one of their friends filmed the whole thing. In the evening the groom wanted to see what the film of the ceremony came out like, so he rewound the camcorder (this was back in the '80's) ready to look through the footage when he got distracted and put the camcorder down and forgot about it. The friend who was filming it picked the camera up and carried on filming therefore he went over all of the recording of the day, all they ended up with was the last hour of the evening reception.

At my wedding, one of the guests was demonstrating how well he could still do the splits on the dance floor, when a slightly tipsy (ok - completely wrecked) guest tripped over the extended leg and caused a mini pile up on the dance floor!

  22. On my wedding day, we had ring delivery by owl which went perfectly in rehersals, however when it came to the actual ceremony, the owl landed on the ribbon which attached the rings to it and wouldn't let the best man untie them without several rather sharp pecks which left him scarred!

  26. At a wedding which I attended:- The bride's dog attended to present her with a horse-shoe (a decorative shop bought token for good luck) for good luck. There were photos taken at the time. Those of us attending had been told the groom had arranged for the dog to be included / involved on the wedding day. As the dog was considered as part of the family, he behaved perfectly. We were all delighted that he had been involved and we got the brief chance to greet their beloved dog.

  27. At my wedding I said there was to be no sermon so the vicar decided to have a go before I arrived. Apparantly the organist who was a friend decided to pull out all the stops and all you could see was the vicars mouth moving!

  37. On our wedding day my hubby's side of the family had to travel to the wedding by hired coach. Due to delays on the road they arrived without much time to spare. It was beginning to look as if we'd have to go ahead without his family, the best man and the bridesmaids!

  62. We got married at an aquarium called The Deep. Towards the end of the night and after a few glasses of wine Adele's song 'Rolling In The Deep' came on. All of the guests and me in my wedding dress rolled around the floor in front of the tanks to the chorus. I love hearing that song now. It always brings back such good memories!

  72. My wedding day was the best day of my life, everything went perfectly and we have some wonderful memories! We had 3 'first dances' as we have 3 special songs. Our first 'first' dance was to a song that was extremely special to us, but at least 98% of the guests had never heard it before, and as we danced on the dance floor, sneaking the odd glance at the massive crowd watching us, the look of sheer confusion on their faces was priceless!

  73. We got married with just the two witnesses there - the Registrar directed all the questions to one of them right at the start as she was heavily pregnant, must have thought that was why it was such an intimate affair!

  75. We decided to have our reception at our house as we had a good sized garden, but all week the weather forecast said it would chuck ot down on the day so I was worried. As it turned out, the sun shone & it was the hottest day of the year. We were going round the garden offerring guests a top up of their champagne & some suncream!

  77. I was half an hour late to my wedding because we were stuck behind a milk float needless to say my husband thought I had done a runner, our best man couldnt untie the knot on the ring pillow because he had no fingers literally he doesnt, and the singer at our wedding was entertaining everyone then the microphone slipped down the pole getting smaller and smaller and so did she talk about professional hahaha. pretty adventurous day if you ask me wouldnt change a thing though

  78. The reception was held at my mum's home, in a shared terrace area,so we naturally invited the neighbours to come and have a drink with us. When we got back from the ceremony one neighbour was already there, and he managed to be at the head of the buffet queue, he got himself in all the photographs, he drank so much that he was totally drunk, lolling in his chair and flirting with all the lady guests, and he was the last to leave - we practically had to carry him home. To add insult to injury, I had never even met him before that day!
