For years, Groom and Best Man are super close, room together, and the running joke is that they’re more than friends. Later on, Groom meets Bride, falls in love, and proposes. New running joke is that Best Man is very disappointed that Groom is marrying someone else.
At the wedding, officiant asks if anyone has objections. Best Man objects. Officiant quickly overrules the objection. It was planned, and Bride thought it was a funny way to acknowledge the super close friendship between Groom and Best Man.
My aunt was getting married to her second husband, and during the “speak now or forever hold your peace” bit, their baby started crying.
The dude officiating it said “If anyone older than six months has any objections, speak now or forever hold your peace” He got a laugh and the wedding carried on.
They’re still together 10 years later, so I guess whatever my cousin had to say was misinformed.
Ooh, I have one of these. My friend (groom) was getting married to this awful girl we all hated. They broke up during the rehearsal dinner after arguing about the order the groomsmen would stand in (she wanted her brother higher in the order). Wedding still happened the next day, even though they were “broken up”.
We all show up to the church not knowing if the bride would show, or what the f**k would happen. She shows up, pastor asks for the objections and her mom objects – yells something about how the groom is a piece of sh*t and isn’t welcome in her family.
Mom leaves the church, dad and brother leave after her. Bride is just standing there staring at the groom with a real smug look on her face and says “told you you should have put my brother second in line instead of fifth”.
Pastor doesn’t know what to do, but just kinda keeps on trucking and eventually they’re married.
Drank a sh*t ton at the reception, we all did.
Also they’re divorced now, didn’t even make it a whole year.
