A list of reader-submitted wedding catastrophes includes much drunkenness, desertion, police intervention, infidelity, and vomiting, plus one fart and one fire, although they aren't in the same story. No wedding is perfect, but few are as awful as these. Take the one where the knot was to be tied in a public park.
"My husband and I attended an outdoor wedding at a public park in town. When we arrived the police and coroner's van were there, surrounded by the wedding guests. Apparently a homeless man had sought shelter behind the lattice surrounding the bottom of the gazebo floor and had DIED several days before. It was June in Missouri and the stench was horrible! So...they proceed to move the wedding to a field on the OTHER side of the park, and although everyone was shaken up they decided to proceed.
The preacher was in the middle of the vows and one of the groomsmen interrupted and said, 'John, I'm sorry but you can't marry Sherilynn. I love her and she's pregnant with my baby.' Wow. Then the groom proceeds to yell at his bride (not)-to-be that she was a cheap whore. Then one of the guests STANDS UP and yells at the groom, 'Serves you right, you bastard! You've been screwing my sister for a year!' Yep. —Sarah Taylor, Facebook
Believe it or not, several of the stories could actually be worse than that. While some may be made up, they are all fairly believable, if cringeworthy. Read 33 such wedding tales at Buzzfeed.
