16 guests who have witnessed a wedding objection share what happened next.


While we've all fantasized about standing up and objecting during the seemingly pointless 'speak now or forever hold your peace' portion of a wedding, but does anyone besides Taylor Swift ever actually do it?

So, when a Reddit user asked, 'Wedding guests who have objected at weddings or seen someone object, what happened in the next 5 minutes?' people were ready to share the wedding horror story that still occasionally wakes them up in a cold sweat at 3 AM.


My dad marrying his third wife. My step brother and I were in the wedding party. He was about 6, I was 10. The preacher asks if anyone objects and my brother raises his hand so very politely. My dad asks why, and my step brother replies, 'because I want you to promise to take me fishing whenever I want, first.' - Southern_Kisses


When the pastor got to the part 'or forever hold your peace,' the bride said, 'Yes, I’d like to say something.' Then she turned around to her guests and said, 'I’d like to thank my maid of honor for sleeping with my fiancé last night.' With that, she threw her bouquet and stormed off. The story even made it on the radio at the time.- [deleted]


My ex-stepmom was getting married to my cousin. I really like my cousin, and my ex-stepmom is one of the worst people I know, so I tried to talk him out of it, but he was committed. They said their vows and everything, but when the pastor asked if anyone objected, I stood up.

I talked about how terrible of a person my ex-stepmom was, and how she was tricking my cousin. I practically begged him not to marry her, but he wouldn’t even look at me. After a minute of me talking, I realized that everyone else in the room was actively hating me, so I left.

They’re still married to this day – five years next Thursday. They seem to be genuinely happy. I’m starting to wonder if I just had the wrong idea about my ex-stepmom. I go over to their house sometimes and eat dinner- [deleted]


My cousin's wedding was lovely, they'd been engaged for years but decided to delay the wedding because they had two boys. So the officiant asked if anyone had any objections, cue her eldest saying 'I do! Daddy I need a wee!' Honestly, everyone who heard it was in hysterics. He'll never live it down I imagine... - BobbieMcGee92


I was at a college buddies wedding when a drunken childhood friend of the bride tried to stand up and profess his love for her.

The bride's father immediately stood up and tried to haul off said drunken guy by the ear, except he was so pissed he pulled too hard and partially severed the guy's ear.

I was also pretty tipsy and laughed a little too hard when the dude screamed like a small girl, but I was not the only one. A few people even applauded.- ilickvarts


At my wedding the officiant said 'Anyone finds reason these two should not be wed, now is not the time. You've had years. But find me after the ceremony. I love gossip.' - 45MinutesOfRoadHead


This actually happened at my sisters wedding. My brother in laws boss decided to rock up and yell 'yeah mate, I gotta speak my peace... oh sorry mate, wrong wedding!' .... everyone laughed except my brother in law who was pretty pissed. - Redcap1981


Everyone laughed because they thought it was a joke. But the bride to be really was already married. They sorted it out after the wedding (very loudly). - PathToTruth


When I was a very young lad, I attended a wedding in which a man stood up at the point of objection and exclaimed 'You forgot the breadknife.'

For the next 15 years my brother and I were convinced that it was wedding tradition to have a breadknife and forgetting it was a mortal sin. Turns out the guy was just nuts. - Beard0x


It happened at my wedding. Sort of. My middle brother has a very...odd sense of humor that occasionally causes issues. One of those issues is that he likes to whip his balls out at random times and see how long it takes people to notice.

The night before the wedding he told me that at some point during the ceremony he was going to cough loudly, and that would mean his sack was out. I laughed it off.

Our officiant got to the 'speak now or forever hold you peace' bit and I hear a cough from where my brother was sitting. Both my husband and I whipped around in disbelief, but the audience thought we were daring any of them to say something I guess, so they all laughed. Little did they know what was actually going down in the crowd.- Kurokitt


A friend of mine works at a wedding venue. She told me about one wedding where the best man made some jokes in his speech about the time that he slept with the bride. He assumed that the groom already knew about it... he didn't.

Groom was NOT happy, the reception ended up getting cancelled and all the guests were sent home. - RainbowRedRose


I was a waiter for a venue that had a lot of weddings. We typically watched the wedding ourselves from the second floor and waited for everyone to come up for the reception.

A guest for the wedding arrived a few hours early, so he sat in the restaurant and had a few too many drinks. He yelled 'DON'T F*CKING DO IT . HE'S AN A*SHOLE.'

There was the typical gasp by the crowd, then it was just silence as people from the bar (not part of the wedding, but the bar was outside on the same floor) escorted him out. I really want to know what happened.- ParoxysmAttack


My uncle yelled out 'shut the f*ck up Bobby ', then everybody laughed and my cousin sat down.- [deleted]


I officiated a wedding where the groom's best man was a work associate. At the reception they were doing toasts and the best man gets up and tells stories about how he thought the groom was really gay.

I think he thought it would be hilarious but no one thought it funny, especially the bride. When he was done the bride's dad stood up and said, 'Patrick needs a new best man. Any takers?' Folks avoided the guy like the plague for the rest of the night. -unitedmethod


Had a friend object at my first wedding. He came right up to the altar, spouting off about all my shortcomings. Myself and my groomsmen all leveled our guns at him, but he just. Wouldn't. Shut. Up. So we fired.

He lay in a heap on the ground for the rest of the ceremony. Mind you, this was all planned. It was a piratey, renaissancey wedding, and the guns were black powder (sans the shot, of course). We all played our parts a bit too well, though...a few of the more gullible guests thought there'd been a legit murder at the wedding, at first. It was awesome. - ben0318


This happened at one of my friend's sibling's weddings. Her parents are suuuuper conservative and hadn't gotten the chance to know the daughter's fiancé very well before they got married. In their minds all that was relevant about him was that he was 10 years older than her and had been previously divorced.

They had made subtle and not-so-subtle comments here and there before the wedding that they weren't happy about it. It should have been a forewarning of what was to come. The day of the wedding, everything was beautiful. Friend's sister and her fiancé were ecstatic to be getting married and invited friends and family from both sides to their outdoor wedding.

All was going well, until the preacher asks the audience if anyone has objections to why they should get married.... and as serious as can be, dad of the bride stands up and says 'her mother and I object,' and then after a long hesitation sits back down. Silence.

No one can believe that that just happened. Not knowing exactly how to handle it, the preacher just says 'ok' and finishes the ceremony as planned. I can't even imagine how the bride and groom must have felt.

My friend says the tension in the room was unbelievable. But they got married all the same... they just do a lot of avoiding the ILs as one might imagine - reimaginingme
