13 thoughts on “Bridal Moments II: Weddings Are [Usually] No Laughing Matter”

  1. The bride was milking the situation. What’s happened to decorum and self-control? Yes, the flub was humorous, but no need to carry on with such hysterics.

    Did they do the “Cake-Smear-in-the-Face” routine at the reception? That’s usually good for more gasps, comments, and (fake) laughter too.

  2. I’m against gay marriage, I’m against All Marriage, it’s the only humanitarian position to hold, as I see it..!

    Is that wrong..?

    Who cares..!

  3. If I could do it over with money being no problem, and even though I don’t understand the words (beginning halfway through), I’d have Pierre Bensusan play this at my wedding.

  4. OT: Here’s a crazy story involving out of control police:

    Fire chief shot by cop in Ark. court over tickets

    Here’s a piece that stands out:
    “It was anger over traffic tickets that brought Payne to city hall last week, said his lawyer, Randy Fishman. After Payne failed to get a traffic ticket dismissed on Aug. 27, police gave Payne or his son another ticket that day. Payne, 39, returned to court to vent his anger to Judge Tonya Alexander, Fishman said.

    It’s unclear exactly what happened next, but Martin said an argument between Payne and the seven police officers who attended the hearing apparently escalated to a scuffle, ending when an officer shot Payne from behind.

    Doctors in Memphis, Tenn., removed a .40-caliber bullet from Payne’s hip bone, Martin said. Another officer suffered a grazing wound to his finger from the bullet.

    Martin declined to name the officer who shot Payne. It’s unclear if the officer has been disciplined.

    Prosecutor Lindsey Fairley said Thursday that he didn’t plan to file any felony charges against the officer or Payne. Fairley, reached at his home, said Payne could face a misdemeanor charge stemming from the scuffle, but that would be up to the city’s judge. He said he didn’t remember the name of the officer who fired the shot.”

    Can someone explain to me why the cop was not arrested and apparently is not going to be charged with a crime?

    *shakes head*

  5. Gyges,

    That’s a great way to get married! I bet this couple will be very happy. I laughed at my wedding also. We were at the courthouse and the judge was a lame duck and picked that day to stop doing weddings because he was sick of them! So we had to wait around for another judge to come in and cover for this guy. My husband first got married in the 70s and the judge read Khalil Gibran to him and his wife. OMG–sorry to everyone who likes Gibran, but that wouldn’t be me. I’m so glad I didn’t get that read to me! Plus we had to get our license in a really ignorant small town. I was given a bridal kit that contained Tide, Midol and dish soap!!! I felt super feminine.

  6. Buddha,

    Thank you. We had the ideal wedding, short ceremony, long reception with plenty of food 1 polkas and a song from Bobissimo!, just to provide the right amount of musical whiplash.

  7. Well my first marriage was doomed after the reception. I look back now and realize that a Ukrainian Band asked to play my old time favorite of Ray Price, please release was not a good sign.

    Almost as good as: “You know its not going to be a good day when 60 minutes” shows up to do an interview with your boss. It is not a good day for anyone. Nope. Not at all.

  8. This happened at our wedding, my father in law (who helped officiate) told us we should “medicate on love.” I didn’t help that during the vows I kept doing my best Groucho Marx eyebrow wiggle. My marriage started with laughter, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I also proposed via Limerick, in a parking lot. I’m a romantic.

  9. Loved the princess bride reference in the first one…. hahahah he definitely kept his sense of humor about it…
