3 Nightmare Wedding Guests Who Completely Ruined the Big Day



Weddings should only be about love and joy, but not everyone wants to see others finding their happily ever after. These nightmare nuptials prove that you shouldn’t invite everyone to your special day. And the seventh story shows that everything in your life could be a lie!Planning a wedding is already stressful and expensive enough for someone to come and ruin everything. These people on Reddit posted what happened during their ceremony and reception that made them wish they hadn’t hosted a party at all.Comments have been edited for clarity and grammar.1. My Selfish Family Did Whatever They Wantedu/Swimming_Juice_9752: Not everyone should be considered your close family. I married my partner in a modest ceremony and reception in our backyard. Being middle-aged and each on our second marriage, we opted for a simple thing.Despite the distance, almost every guest traveled,

some from the Midwest and others for hours within our state. We live in a remote part of the country, where a 120-mile journey can take over five hours.Still, we were thrilled that my parents and one of my six siblings made it. My parents had a visit planned, so we timed the wedding to fit perfectly. My sister decided to join a couple of weeks before the event.I arranged hair and makeup appointments with my regular stylist for my mom, sister, and me. The first appointment was at 10 a.m., and I was the last to go there, so I stayed home to prepare our house until noon.After arriving at the salon, I found out that my mom and sister had left. I had hoped we’d spend the day together, especially since we live nearly 2,000 miles apart.I returned home around 3 p.m.,

with much left to do and the photographer arriving at 4:30 p.m., so I was panicking. I texted my family for help.The plan was for them to assist with final party preparations after our appointments. However, they went to a fancy lunch an hour away and were just getting ready at their rental at 3:30 p.m. I managed the last-minute tasks alone as guests began to arrive, but by then, I was sweating off my makeup.My parents and sister arrived at 4:15 p.m.,

leaving me barely any time to write my vows and get dressed. But the worst part was seeing my mom in a knee-length cream lace dress with brown, tall boots, identical to my wedding gown.She had seen my dress already, and all she could say about it was: “It’s cream, not white.” I was on the verge of tears by then and wanted to change. But my dad eventually took her back to their rental to change.They came back an hour later, but they were both clearly unhappy with me. They didn’t speak to me for the rest of the night, other than to say goodbye. My sister helped clean up, but I was deeply hurt because she didn’t intervene earlier.The next day, my parents hosted a brunch, where my mom barely spoke to me, and my dad seemed annoyed. I had trouble sleeping due to anxious dreams for an entire month after my wedding. Luckily, my husband was there, and I focused on building my life with him.2. I Threw My Mother-in-Law Outu/DesignerHumor1450: I waited way too long before doing something about this woman. I, 24, recently married my wife. But I’ve had a tense relationship with her mother (MIL) since we started dating. Despite knowing her disdain for me, I never anticipated how far she would go to show it.My MIL lived in our house for a while because she couldn’t find a place to stay and was adamant about not being put in a home.Throughout her stay, she was ungrateful. She refused to contribute to the bills and never thanked us for the food we provided. It was a growing issue, but I didn’t think about it much until the wedding.I proposed to my wife on the High Roller Ferris Wheel in Las Vegas, and it was a magical moment. So, I wanted our wedding to be just as perfect. We meticulously planned it for ten months, and everything should’ve gone without a hitch.Until my MIL chose to wear an extravagant white dress, complete with a puffy skirt and a little accessory on her hair. It looked like she was my bride. We could’ve made a scene, but my actual bride and I let it go.She didn’t like that. During the ceremony, her demeanor was sour, but it was her yelling, “Oh, please!” during our vows that had us all in disbelief. I was ready to have her removed by security, but my wife intervened, not wanting to make more of a spectacle.Our first dance came, and my wife and I were having the best moment during a slow, quiet song, we had always adored. But suddenly, MIL shouted, “GIVE ME MY DAUGHTER BACK,” and that was it for me.The rest of the reception passed in a blur because I was too angry and frustrated. My wife was simply uncomfortable.Once we were home, I couldn’t contain my anger any longer. MIL walked down the hallway to her room, almost like she was running away, but I stopped her. I told her in the most passive-aggressive manner possible to leave, insisting she pack her bags and be out by the next day. At first, she scoffed, then came her empty apologies, and finally, the crocodile tears, but I was unmoved. She had to go. And this time, my wife didn’t intervene. Her silence made me think she, too, wished for her mother to be gone. We arranged for her to move into a senior living home, where she would be responsible for her expenses. Since then, she has adopted a humbler attitude. Would you have done any differently?

3. I Couldn’t Control My Anger – u/best_reddituser19: Was I wrong about this? My husband and I recently tied the knot in Paris. It was a huge wedding with over 60 people attending.I’ve never been on good terms with my mother-in-law, and if it were my choice, I wouldn’t have had her at the wedding at all. But I put our differences aside for my husband and invited her.Everything was fine after I had sent the invitations out until I got a text from my mother-in-law asking if any children would be attending the wedding.I said yes, as I have a six-year-old son from a previous relationship who loved my husband as if he were his dad.This became a problem for her, and she demanded I hire a babysitter for my son, since he wasn’t my husband’s biological child. I was fuming but kept my cool for my husband’s sake. I calmly told her it was my wedding and wanted my son to be there on my big day. She finally agreed after arguing for some time.Everything was great after that, and we had a few days before the wedding. Getting everyone from the airport to the hotels was stressful, but it went smoothly.Once we got to the hotel, my mother-in-law insisted on sharing a room with us. My husband and I told her we wanted to spend some time alone with our son before the wedding, since he wouldn’t get enough attention during the ceremony and the party afterward.We asked her to share a room with my sister-in-law instead, and she walked away angrily. At that point, I thought she wouldn’t argue or cause more stress on the wedding day, but I was wrong. A day before the wedding, she said she should have been my maid of honor.I don’t understand why she said that because she always knew she wouldn’t be my maid of honor. Also, no one makes their in-laws part of the wedding party.I didn’t want to argue, so I just walked away. Finally, the wedding day arrived, the ceremony started, and everything went as planned. I felt it was the best day of my life until the reception started.Everyone was having fun, but when it came time for my husband and I to have our first dance as a married couple. We were halfway through the song before I heard a loud “boo” from a person in the crowd. Of course, it was her.She stood up and shouted, “You have taken my boy away from me. He will never love you as much as he loved me! A boy’s mom should be the only woman he should ever love! You will never be good enough for him!”That’s when I lost my cool, got up, and shouted in her face, “You have done nothing but ruin everything for me! You ruined the days leading up to the wedding and my wedding day. I will never accept you as my mother-in-law!”She immediately started crying and ran out of the wedding. Needless to say, the rest of the night was awkward, and everyone went home early. So, should I have kept my mouth shut?Coming soon: a bride’s family and her groom are completely AWOL from her wedding. Then, she discovers they’re all at another ceremony!
