“What’s The Cringiest Thing You’ve Seen A Bride And Groom Do For Their Wedding?“—39 Replies


At a classmates’ wedding. They were young – maybe like 22? 23? There is apparently a caking tradition in some parts of the country, where when they cut the wedding cake, the couple feed each other a bit and smear each other’s faces with cake as a joke. The bride had absolutely made 1000% clear to the groom she did NOT want to be caked.

He did it anyways, and not just a small smear, but full on smushed the slice in her face. She was stunned initially, then got up, face full of cake, yelled “YOU A**HOLE I TOLD YOU NOT TO DO THAT!” and then ran to a back area in the reception. The groom tried to follow but the bridesmaids/mother of the bride stopped him. So he sat at the head table awkwardly while half the wedding party rushed off with the bride.

She stayed back there for like an hour. They eventually did let him back there to check on her. We could hear her crying and them arguing. The rest of the reception came to a screeching halt until one of the bride’s aunts emerged and directed the servers to clear the tables and put on some music.

They got divorced 2 years later.—u/WeddingElly


Went to a wedding for my cousin. It was both of their second time getting married and they had only known each other for about 4 months. When they were getting married at the alter the husband had a 6 pack of Dr pepper and the wife had a 6 pack of Mountain Dew. After the reading of the vows the priest says you may now kiss the bride. So they kiss and then immediately hand each other one of their drinks and start to chug it.—u/killerhacks86


Went to a wedding in the United states. This was both the bride and grooms 4th marriages. To each other. They got married 4 times and divorced 3. They picked a dirty motorcycle bar (not my wedding, theirs, ok.) But were openly giving young children alcohol then laughing at them being drunk.

I asked my friend if i could leave when the bride pulled a knife out of her breasts and tried to stab the groom for having sex with a woman while they were divorced. Im not sure if this is common in new Jersey. Other weddings i attended while in the usa were not like that.—u/dontniceguyatme


Well, the groom (my uncle) didn’t do it, but my dad wrote “help me” on the bottom of his shoes in big blocky letters so when he went up and kneeled at one point the immediate crowd had a good laugh.—u/LiquifiedSpam


I was forced to sit there and had to watch the bride and groom take pictures in poses that were from bollywood movies, for 2 hours straight.—u/BigGoose420


I was raised a jehovah’s witness, it’s a cult. Dating is only allowed to find a marriage partner and was very monitored, to ensure NO premarital touching occurred. Worst wedding was a small ceremony, it was literally her family, his family and my family in her grandma’s living room. What made it the worst was the xxx kiss at the end, the groom wanted the bride inside his mouth hard core, there was tongue in and out everywhere, saliva and hot breathing, complete with first date excited groping. Nobody knew where to look for 5 mins—u/brookeboogu


I went to a wedding with my ex a few years back. It was one of his fraternity brother’s wedding, and apparently the bride’s parents were ridiculously conservative. So conservative that they have super-edited versions of every song the DJ played, including bleeping out the word “shots” from “Shots” by LMFAO.

Also, it was a dry wedding, so this rendition of the song was almost too on the nose…—u/gotyourhayneson


Not the groom and bride’s fault. But the pastor marrying them, talked about his marriage and his kids for 20 minutes. He was obviously going for something of showing what marriage will be like. But he full up was talking about how his daughter, Kelsey, learned to walk this way, and his other daughter’s first words were this and that. And that he and his wife make love throughout the house because that’s what you do when in love, etc.

Bride and groom had to stand there holding hands for 20 minutes right in front of him as the other 150 of us had to listen about his sex life and his kids.—u/Manatee_Ape


The groomsman prepared a skit in which they “lost” the groom at the reception and proceeded with over the top hands on hips ” Hey guys- Arent we forgetting SOMETHING? Well , where can he POSSiBLY Beeeeee?” acting like some high school musical. None of the guest were prepared and silently fussed around with their drinks and silverware. When the whole thing ended, they anticipated like a standing ovation but it went over the heads of everyone. A lone voice muttered “That was kinda wierd…” as they made their exit quietly—u/VageCheese
