39. The bride and groom totally skimped on the food. It was a long day from church (1pm) to dancing (9pm) and we were starving and miles away from the nearest town.
After a long mass, we were able to get half a scone with jam and cream, then wait for dinner at 5pm. The plated three course meal had no options and the portions were tiny and the food was not filling. My “fruit salad and ice cream” desert looked like carrot shavings.
There wasn’t any evening snacks for the people who stayed to dance, and they didn’t even cut the cake.
We were starving and that’s just not a feeling you can ignore at an event no matter how pretty the Pinterest.
40. It’s a toss up between the one where the bridal and groom party took a 5 1/2 hour detour between the ceremony and the reception for photos (a reception where no food was to be served prior to their arrival with only a cash bar that also wouldn’t serve until their arrival).
And a totally dry wedding where the groom put a large cash gift from one of the bride’s family members under his plate only to forget until after the reception was cleaned up (cue myself and several groomsmen inside a dumpster emptying and searching every bag in vain hopes of finding the lost money while the bride literally wept and wailed in the groom’s arms).
