You know that moment I’m talking about, the bride catches the groom doing something outrageous and all of a sudden the wedding’s off. Or the groom catches the bride in bed with an old boyfriend and the father of the bride gets stuck with a massive bill for a party to celebrate infidelity. These aren’t just movie tropes, this shit happens in real life, and below are stories from people who witnessed those ‘well, there’s not going to be a wedding anymore…’ moments firsthand (via AskReddit)
One of my best friend’s wedding was cancelled when he learned she slept with a stripper after her bachelorette party. Like three days after.
He is happily remarried now with a kid.
Worst part was that it was a destination wedding/honeymoon and he couldn’t get a refund so we all went anyway and he was super depressed the whole time. His family was all there too.
Bride and her bff were at the bachelor party. Groom fucked the bff.
I was at a Bachelor party the Tuesday night before a Saturday wedding. After 8 hours or so of heavy drinking all day, we were at a baseball game and the groom punched a police officer in the back of the head and knocked him out for a few seconds. I watched it happen in slow motion, and thought to myself, “Welp, this wedding isn’t going to be happening this weekend”.
Bachelor party in Vegas.. Bachelor hooks up with a girl, gives her his cell phone number so they can continue the party that night.. Bride to be is sitting at home with the iPad getting all of the iMessages from the girl. She canceled the wedding that day.
College friend was to get married to a guy she had only known for 4 months. She found out where the bachelor party was and wandered in to find the groom getting some head – from the best man.
A stripper came to my buddy Jack’s bachelor party and proceeded to put a condom on a dildo and bang herself in front of the crowd. * It was awesome *At the end of the night, Jack, the groom-to-be was cleaning up a bit and put the condom wrapper in his pocket absentmindedly.
The next day his fiancee Kristen was doing laundry and found the condom wrapper, and freaked out thinking that he had cheated on her. Jack tried to reassure her and explain the situation, that the stripper had used it on herself. Kristen is a really cool lady and takes it pretty well and calms down… but she can’t quite shake the feeling. So, Jack tells her to call me to confirm what happened.
Kristen calls and asks “so what happened last night?” Mind you, I’m totally in the dark about the situation, and Jack and I had never discussed what we are supposed to tell Kristen, so I totally downplay it. “Not much, the boys just had a few beers and smoked some cigars”
I hear YOU LYING PIECE OF SHIT click
Obligatory not me. I worked at a music venue in the Detroit area that was also a popular wedding reception location. Came into work one week in the fall, when pretty much every weekend is booked solid with weddings, and noticed Saturday was open, no one scheduled. Talked to the wedding planner, she tells me the groom cancelled… Odd. Talk to wedding planners younger brother, who was our head bar back.
He tells me that the groom, excited for the wedding, left work at lunch on Friday, bought a nice bottle of wine, and headed home to surprise his bride to be. Except, he was the one in for a surprise, as he walked into his new house to hear sounds coming from their bedroom.
He walked in to find his bride in bed with another man… His dad.
We tried to talk him into doing a big fuck you party because we’d never fill the space and there was no refund, but he declined.
A week before his wedding a friend of mine walked in on his dad having sex with his Fiancée. The next day in a fit of rage he trashed their room and in the process found explicit love letters between his recently married best friend (and best man) in her underwear drawer. The letters were as recent as the past week. The wedding was canceled. Whenever I ran into him at a bar I made sure he never had to buy his own drinks.
While the working the night before a wedding at a hotel, the staff and I heard a loud scream from upstairs. Cue the bride screaming and sobbing shouting “The weddings off!!!” while storming out the place followed by the groom stark bollock naked covering his nether regions with his hands apologising profusely. Turns out she caught the mother of the bride and the groom shagging. Safe to say we had an easy shift the next day as we didn’t have a wedding to cater for.
Buddy’s bachelor party. Bachelor got super wasted and the FoB was shocked and did not know the well mannered/polite young man marrying his daughter was in his eyes a “..raging alcoholic..”. The bachelor got so drunk, he began to let some secrets slip about his relationship with the bride. The FoB was a bit old school in his thinking. The Bachelor let the following slip.
His daughter was basically living with him since Junior year of college and her apartment in college was for show for the FoB.
Even though he is drinking a lot, his future wife can out drink him 2-1.
His future wife has cute tattoo on her inner thigh and that all his/her friends had seen it when they went skinny dipping at the FoB’s lakehouse.
We had a massive graduation party at his lakehouse when him and his wife were in Europe for two weeks.
The bride is into some kinky stuff.
That drew the line. The FoB declared there would not be a wedding, where has he gone wrong raising his daughters. Then he said his life is f*cked. He has four daughters total and this was is oldest and who he considered his best behave.
My cousin runs a popular upscale marriage venue and always tells the story way better than this so here is a rough overview. The groom’s mom was a heavy drinker and got belligerent when she drank so understandably the bride wanted the groom to try to limit her drinking. The afternoon before the wedding the bride arrives to see groom’s mom smashed with the groom himself giving her beers. Next thing my cousin knows (she was there to oversee preparations) the bride and groom are in a straight up fist fight which leads to an Anchorman-style street fight between members of both families in the parking lot.
Apparently they recently scheduled a new day for it. I can’t imagine the tension there.
Sister of the groom chatted with the sister of the bride. Just casual conversation but it came to light that almost 100% of what the bride had said besides her name was a complete lie. Sister of the groom calls him up and says he really needs to figure out if this is right. A few fights and some long thinking later the groom leaves her and leaves town.
It got worse though, turns out pretty much all the bride’s friends had been lied to as well. They all stopped talking to her.
A groom fighting the brides brother at the bachelor party. This is of course the result of the groom paying for a handjob (why even bother right?) from the stripper.
In the early 90’s my friend’s brother was getting married. The night before the groom and best man decided they should kill the ex-boyfriend of the bride. They did, they got caught, and the wedding was cancelled – for obvious reasons.
As far as I know, the two are still serving time.
Not me or anyone I know personally, but in Detroit there’s an AM radio show called ‘Dave and Chuck the Freak’. The show is pretty much what you expect, dick and fart jokes mostly. But they had a question to the listeners one morning on this exact topic. The story went that the caller had gotten super drunk at his bachelor party and some of his groomsmen sodomized him with liquor bottles and took photos. The caller had even stated that he brought this up to his fiance and she basically said “Get over it and don’t ruin my big day”. Needless to say, having this info out on the Metro Detroit radio waves caused quite a backlash against the groomsmen and fiance, even ending in some kind of legal battle, if I recall? Anyway, the caller received very positive support from the community to cut it off with his fiance. There was even a trending hashtag on twitter for a while after.
I had a buddy whose fiance slept with a male stripper at her bachelorette party. He found out but wasn’t totally irate about it. They had a pretty open relationship and flirted all the time with other people. Anyways, a couple days before their wedding..he got drunk and slept with one of his fiance’s friends.
He told her what he did, and they both basically said “truce”. And got married. 8 years later, they’re happy with 2 kids. It’s weird though, cause the friend that he banged still hangs out with all of us…no one really talks about it.
True story man.
Last but not least, THIS is one understanding woman. This is a keeper right here:
My friend had been with his fiance of 8 years when she got pregnant. Fast forward 8 months and we decide that because they are basically common law married we need to throw him a bachelor party. So we go to the nearest big city and he’s abused by strippers and we’re all quite drunk when he gets the call that his fiance is in labor… none of us is in any state to drive… We end up calling a cab and paying over $300 to get him to the hospital as soon as possible. My friend is stumble down drunk when he walks into the delivery room smelling like strippers, with a dick drawn on his face and covered in glitter… I was positive that was the end.
They’ve been Married 7 years and just had their second child last week.
