When it comes to wedding taboos, actual ceremonies can be a minefield for disaster. From appropriate colors to wear, types of headgear (never wear a tiara if it’s not your day!), and dance floor gags and wedding toasts, it seems that when it comes to W-day anything can go wrong.
Especially when guests with free-minds are attending.
Likely no one has a keener understanding of wedding day madness than Twitter user Amy Pennza who recently shared a post to Twitter of possibly the worst wedding faux pas occurrence ever. Turns out it also happened at her very own wedding in 2004.
Pennza’s own mother-in-law showed up to her ceremony wearing a long, white gown ― AKA, a wedding dress.
Fortunately, Pennza explained the incident in a thread to her account and as it turns out the nightmarish moment and the MIL are much more redeemable than we’d ever thought. According to Pennza, the MIL, who continues to struggle with letting go of her early years as a child in poverty, could not pass up on a sale at Dillard’s.
Fortunately, Pennza’s post unleashed a series of more tweets about similarly nightmarish stories.
Such as this bride’s madre y suegra match.
Can anyone say “twinning”?
And this novia’s big flop moment in front of a camera.
This bride says that in an innocent attempt to reinvent the Pinterest classic, she ended up eating it.
This officiant’s super odd replacement for communion.
BUT tbh this Boricua’s officiant gets it ride. Dunkin’ truly is the bread of life.
This Latina who got tricked and broke off the engagement.
Oof. Actually this horrific story sounds like a nightmare. Here’s hoping the groom grew up right quick after this.
This mujer whose mother literally LOST her wedding dress.
My girl. How does a wedding dress fly off of an actual car?? Can’t imagine how this poor girl’s mother felt after this happened. Fortunately, the thrift bride was able to find a replacement dress on time!
A destination wedding that has already been abandoned before it took off.
Okay but for real… doesn’t everyone low-key assume that a destination wedding is supposed to exclude?
This story of abuela serving the ultimate mal de ojo.
Ay yay yay. This story of a Latina who had previously been married being shamed just before she walked down the aisle could have been the worst, fortunately she served her own snap back.
This poor bride who was called a racial slur.
Unfortunately, stupid is as stupid does and stupid does exist in the world. Even at weddings. Fortunately this bride who was called a “dirty Mexican” during a drunken toast took things in stride.
And finally a sweet story to beat them all.
This one might definitely make you rethink how you pick out your groom’s men and flower girls but it’s still pretty cute.
