With the formalwear and slow dancing, attending a wedding is the closest thing we in the modern age get to attending a Regency-era ball from a Jane Austen novel. With every event comes etiquette and expectations, and with every set of etiquette and expectations are people who fail to meet them, in hilarious and cringey ways.
The Wedding Shaming forum gave people a place to confess their own most "shameful" behavior at weddings, as either guests or members of the wedding party.
When I was five, I was mostly left unattended at a wedding and got myself some very delicious looking punch, a few glasses worth because 5-year-old me was a juice glutton and this was some fine-a** MFing juice. Then, I promptly threw up everywhere and my parents whisked me off. First drunk y'all!
[I was] late to my partner's boss's wedding and missing the ceremony. This wasn't my fault, I wanted to be on time! I hate being late! But I was with a group - my partner and some of his coworkers I'd just met - and I didn't want them to think I was some anal b*tch who couldn't hang, so I went with the flow, and the woman hosting us for the night thought it wouldn't be a long walk. It was. We arrived just as they were having their kiss at the altar.
