Is there a more high-pressure day than a wedding? It’s expensive, it takes months to plan, and all your family members and their grievances with one another are there. Plus, there’s an open bar. If you make it through a wedding without disaster striking, it’s basically a miracle.
This was brought home by the responses to Jimmy Fallon’s hashtag game #WeddingFail. Fallon asked his followers for their stories of weddings gone wrong for the chance to have it told on his show.
It’s Hashtags time! Tell us about a weird or embarrassing wedding story, and tag it with #WeddingFail. Could be on the show!

At my dad’s friend’s wedding in the 70’s, a hungover groomsman farted, and it smelled so bad that the flower girl barfed all over the bride. #weddingfail

We had just married and we were getting ready for the party. One of the older ladies was one of the first to arrive. She went to some food platter and took a big scoop of guacamole.
The guacamole was wasabi and they had to call the paramedics. #weddingFail pic.twitter.com/hp13t7rLMD

My husband was best man in a wedding where the groom was so drunk that we needed to drag him into the back seat of his own car and then onto a luggage cart to get him to his hotel room. The father of the bride took photos of his head in a toilet as blackmail. #WeddingFail pic.twitter.com/V2zHhLNgnx

At my mom’s second wedding, when everybody was clapping after they kissed, my brother who was 8 at the time yelled “You don’t have to clap. She’s already been married before.” #WeddingFail

At my Cousins wedding, I couldn’t open the bag of rice in time so I tossed the whole bag and smacked the videographer in the face. #WeddingFail
