Weddings are no doubt the most special occasion for a couple. While everyone desires and has their own version of a dream wedding, the most important part which everyone hopes for is that everything goes smooth. No matter how hard someone tries, the extravaganza is always prone to some disturbances.

The BuzzFeed community has however shared the most horrible things that can happen in a wedding. The situation gets literally shitty in some situations. Scroll down to explore the horrors!

1 That groom who peed all over the dance floor and more…

I went to a co-workers’ wedding with my boyfriend, and we were nearing the end of the night. I was dancing to an upbeat song when my boyfriend nudged me and pointed towards an area of the dance floor a few feet away. Both the bride and the groom had gotten absolutely wasted, and the groom started to unbuckle his pants. People started to notice what was happening when he began to pee all over the dance floor, causing several people — including the bride — to slip and fall. He then proceeded to shit all over the dance floor. Yes.


2 Best man reveals he once dated the bride.

At a wedding a few years ago the best man got up to give his speech and all appeared normal. That is until he mentioned that he knew the groom (his little brother) was getting a loving and supportive partner in his new bride…because he had dated her a few years prior.


3 Mom’s embarrassing speech.

My family is very religious except for my mother who is much more liberal. She got very drunk and did a speech where she told my husband and I to make love often. Great advice! But wrong place and time. My poor father looked so embarrassed he grabbed the microphone from her. I still have people talking about it.

4 Groom’s unhappy mother

The mother-of-the-groom literally got up, pushed the bride out of the way and told the groom “[the bride’s] not good enough for you, I set you up on eight dates this month and they’re all perfect!” And then she continued to drunkenly scream at them. It was especially crazy because the families had been friends for decades.


5 A family fistfight.

My cousin’s wedding: the groom’s drunk brother got into a fistfight with the bride’s teenage son during the reception…which was held on church property.


6 A scandalous mother-of-the-groom and father-of-the-bride situation.

While I was out of town visiting a friend we went to the wedding of her co-worker. I didn’t know anyone there so I was wandering around the reception hall and walked in on an older couple in a ‘compromising situation.’ Luckily, they didn’t notice me. I thought that was going to be the end of the story, but later on during the reception they each had to give a toast because SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF THE GROOM AND HE WAS THE FATHER OF THE BRIDE!!!!!!! I’ve never told anyone what I saw and I don’t know if their kids ever found out.


7 Bride’s dress on fire.

At my friend’s wedding they were setting off fireworks. Next thing you know the bride is screaming as her gown is set alight because of a firework that went off on the ground. Fun times.



8 A Pacman wedding guest.

I work as part of the banquet staff at a wedding venue and at one wedding in particular we had a very high maintenance and controlling bride who yelled about the littlest details. One of the guests showed up in — I kid you not — a Pac-Man themed suit. She started hysterically crying as the reception started after she saw him for the first time and then started screaming and kicked him out of the reception. Quietest reception ever after that.


9 A drunk ex-uncle.

A drunk ex-uncle showed up to my cousin’s wedding, and made her dance with him, interrupting the bride and grooms’ first dance (he was not invited).


10 A horse stampede.

The bride and groom wanted pictures with a horse. They decided to put the bride on the horse but didn’t count on the horse tossing the bride. The horse then stomped on the maid of honor. By the time the ceremony started, the bride’s dress was covered in grass stains and the maid of honor had a broken foot.



11 The best man’s X-rated show.

The best man came out of the bathroom in only his trousers and suspenders. He proceeded to strip tease until he was completely naked. He then climbed onto a table and, with his junk tucked, danced for the guests while the bride’s grandmother spanked his ass repeatedly.


12 A drunk Bridesmaid literally on fire.

During the reception my bridesmaid had a little too much to drink. She wasn’t looking where she was going and backed up into a candle with her very long, very hair-spray covered hair. She burnt her dress and her butt-length hair up to her shoulders. And we all know how good burnt hair smells.


13 A bride who had an allergic reaction to her makeup.

I had an allergic reaction to my airbrush makeup. The salon didn’t offer a trial before and I never thought anything of it. We got to the wedding venue (an hour from the salon) and my entire chin, cheek area and nose were as red as a tomato. I burst into tears. The wedding was only two hours away. Thankfully my matron of honor and best friend had spent months watching makeup tutorials and came prepared with a makeup case to do her own makeup. She took me into the bathroom, dried my tears and fixed it all.


14 Minister kept on saying the wrong name.

My ex-boyfriend was marrying his girl Amanda. The minister marrying them knew me and my ex but not the wife to be. The ENTIRE wedding she inserted my name “Joy” into the the places in the ceremony where she should have used “Amanda.” I wanted to die and of course Amanda wanted to kill me but naturally I was in the front row and couldn’t make a graceful exit.


15 A groom wasted and found slept in the bushes

Recently at a wedding I was in, a family friend of the groom must have been pregaming early in the day because by the time the wedding began at 5 p.m he was completely wasted. During the entire ceremony he would be yelling and cheering on all of us in the wedding party as we walked down the aisle. Worst part was that there was a videographer not too far from him trying to film the ceremony. We later found him asleep in the bushes outside during the cocktail hour.


16 Clash of wedding clans.

The entire male wedding party (plus a few guests) got into a huge brawl outside the venue with another wedding party. This included both the grooms and father- of-the-groom from the wedding I attended. It started because someone bumped into “our groom’s'” mom and didn’t apologize. Father of the groom then said something and it turned into about a 24-person brawl.


17 Flower girl who peed herself.

I was actually the culprit to causing a wedding disaster. I was a flower girl in my aunt and uncle’s wedding and during the ceremony while I was standing up front with the bridesmaids, I proceeded to pee myself. All over my white dress and white stockings. In my defense I kept telling the maid of honor I had to go.


18 The woman who accidentally ripped the bride’s dress.

At my aunt’s wedding, I was holding her bride’s dress to help her up the altar. I stepped on it accidentally and ripped her $3,000 dress in front of everyone.


19 Drunk bride’s mother lifted the dress way too high.

The bride and groom were walking back down the aisle when the bride’s drunk mother ran up behind her and lifted her dress up giving the guests a full shot of the poor bride’s rear end…


20 Wedding party got drenched in bathwater.

We set up our entire beautiful reception and were just about to head out to get our hair done for the ceremony, when all of a sudden the ceiling gave way and the room began to flood with the steaming water. Someone above us had fallen asleep with their bathtub running. We had to use big painters’ buckets to toss the water out of the room and into the waterfall outside. Our wedding party had to redo the setup as a result. The best part was the irony of the fact that the room was called the River Room. We can laugh at it now, but it was a disaster at the time!


21 Wedding DJ got arrested.

At my sister’s wedding, she paid the DJ half before the wedding then was going to pay the other half after. He ended up coming by saying he needed the other half for equipment so we paid him. He was running super late to the ceremony, and eventually called and said he had gotten arrested for not wearing a seat belt. Come to find out he was arrested for drugs of some kind that he used our money for! So we had to improvise by finding some speakers and plugging a phone in and hoping they’d be loud enough!


22 The bride attacked by the ants.

While my husband and I were taking family photos, I apparently stepped on an ant hill. Thousands of ants crawled into all 10 layers of the bottom of my dress. My parents and bridesmaids tried to pick out all the ants — we even tried to get a hair dryer to blow them out — but when I finally took my dress off at the end of the night, hundreds of ants fell out in the shower.


23 Husband waited at the altar more than he bargained for.

My grandfather, who was officiating, forgot to have me enter. Someone had to remind him halfway through the ceremony while my husband was standing at the altar…alone.


24 A literally Hot Wedding which melted the cake.

It was the middle of August and my cousin decided to have her wedding reception indoors, in an area of the church with NO AIR CONDITIONING. At first it was sort of alright, we opened up the two doors and someone brought out a big fan. Fast forward to the cake. The cake melted and fell apart.


25  Mother-of-the-bride with a dramatic accident right before the ceremony.

We were at the hotel taking pictures before the ceremony and my mother tripped over my veil and fell. She hit her forehead with a chair. Needless to say, blood everywhere. My husband was waiting for me at the altar. Literally. I had to call him while having a complete mental breakdown, thinking I had killed my mother on my wedding day and try to explain that we were “running a bit late.” We made it just fine in the end, but after that horrible scene, I almost felt sedated and the ceremony was a piece of cake.


26 The bridesmaid straight from hell.

One of my bridesmaids got super drunk. She knocked over my two-year-old niece (and flower girl) who started crying which really pissed off my sister (the maid of honor). This bridesmaid also disappeared for a large part of the reception and ended up hooking up with (loudly I might add) one of the groomsmen. My sister had to go kick them out of an upstairs room when the wedding was over…oh, and she had come with a boyfriend. The next day at breakfast it was all anyone could talk about. Major thunder stolen. We are no longer friends, if you’re wondering!


27 A half-naked, dancing, drunk uncle.

My uncle got completely plastered at our open bar and then demanded the attention of the entire dance floor. Everyone stopped and stared as he pulled his trousers all the way down, walked backwards and called it “the Moonwalk.”


28 The bride who got bird poop in her hair.

I had a bird poop in my hair during our wedding pictures. The worse part is I felt something and our photographer just cringed and said it was a leaf. Thank God, I had helpful bridesmaids who have to scrape it out with their fingers. Ugg.


29 The bride in a shitty situation…literally.

I had severe diarrhea. My (now husband) fiancée was reading his vows. All of a sudden, the LIQUID CRAP starts flowing out of me. My wedding dress had a long tail. The crap caught the tail, and when I ran off to get changed 20 minutes later, the tail left a streak of crap all over the ground.
