It happens at many weddings...the unfortunate drama that unfolds (usually because of family issues) during the event. It's truly so sad and frustrating that people can't put aside their differences, or even better, get over themselves during someone's most special wedding day event.
At my sister's wedding there was a little drama but not much. One of our Aunts flipped out because as my sister and her hubby were wandering around the guests' dinner tables to greet everyone, they suddenly ran out of time about halfway through. The photographer was going to be leaving and needed the bride and groom to get on with the cake cutting and bouquet/garter toss. Since my sister didn't get to talk to our Aunt at her table and it just so happened that we pulled the bride away as she was approaching their table, my Aunt started totally crying and yelling at me for not letting her talk to her. It was so silly but that's what happens when you add alcohol.
Then my sister got a little upset later that night when her new hubby's ex-girlfriend shared a cab with her her new mother-in-law to the after party. It was already a huge selfless act that my sister was even willing to allow the ex-girlfriend to attend the event (which she didn't want to do), but to find out that her MIL offered her cab to the after party to her was just ridiculous!
Thankfully, there was no drama at our big event. We didn't wander the tables and I made sure to go greet my Aunt so there were no disappointments.
The only two things I heard about which irritated me on the day after the wedding were that one of Mr Fix It's brothers got into a little spat with him because his brother was yelling at his son about spending too much time in the photobooth. The kids loved that thing and they were in and out of it all night. Mr Fix It's nephew was in there a lot and rather than just telling him to get out and wait until everyone else had had a turn inside, his dad decided to make him sit at their dinner table for almost an hour! That was not necessary and Mr Fix It was pretty pissed when he heard about it. He told his brother to calm down and not be such a dictator...the kid was just having fun.
Then my sister told me that one of my other Aunts came up to her at the cocktail hour and gave her a hard time about what a horrible job she did bustling my dress. If you remember from this post, we were rushing my poor sis and I knew I was about to take my gown off to change right after the cocktail hour so I told her not to worry if it wasn't perfect and part of the dress was dragging on the ground. So not a big deal to me at all but it did bother me that my Aunt felt the need to ridicule my sister about it. So not cool and so not necessary. My sister told her that it was the bride's own decision to leave it like that and my Aunt told her she shouldn't have let me walk out into the cocktail area until it was fixed.
People are so silly about what they get hung up on...it really befuddles me. :)
