21 people share the times when they witnessed someone object at a wedding.


Wedding ceremonies can be tedious. Religious ceremonies can sometimes take forever and be overshadowed by a diatribe. One moment invites pure chaos into the ceremony, however, when the officiant asks if anyone objects. 99% of the time, nobody says anything, but 1% of the time, chaos ensues.

On a popular Reddit thread in the AskReddit Subreddit, people share the chaos ensued when they witnessed someone object at a wedding.

They write:

Groom found out that bride was cheating two days before the wedding day. He spilled the beans while exchanging the vows.

2. ohdearitsrichardiii says:

A friend of mine has a band that plays lots of weddings and other parties. They were hired for a birthday party that turned out to be a surprise wedding. The guy surprised his gf with a proposal and wanted to have a wedding ceremony then and there. She said no and left

3.jamesshine says:

Kind of. My uncle was getting married. Small, just a handful of family and a minister. I was videotaping. My grandmother was not into it at all. With each line spoken by the minister, she had a cutting, sarcastic response. I could not believe it. It was so unlike her,

When that part came up, she said 'I object. But does it really matter? They are going to to do it anyway.' The minister just ignored her and proceeded, business as usual. They were divorced within a year. Wish I had a copy.

My aunties fiance was already married (the lady stood up waving the marriage certificate), so the wedding didn't go well. The reception was on a long boat, so we still went to that. The fiance returned to his home country to sort it out and never returned.

5. nebelhund says:

At his rehearsal dinner, a co-worker's mother's toast included that his soon-to-be wife was a 'damn dirty wh*re who wasn't good enough' for her son. Folks are not happy. (Video ended, so I didn't see the whole thing.)

At a wedding I attended, his mom started to say something at the 'speak now' part but was silenced by her daughter. Mom left and didn't see the rest of the ceremony. Everything about that poor guy was drama.

6. Lsd365 says:

I was at one where the groom thanked the bride's ex for dying as his loss was my gain. Didn't help the sons of his bride and ex were in attendance.

7. Tobias---Funke says:

I went to a wedding where the best man was replaced a week before because he banged the bride. But the wedding still went ahead just with a different best man. They are divorced now.

8. DannySpud2 says:

I dunno if it's a UK thing or even just a one specific church thing but I was told by the priest in a rehearsal that if someone objects, even as a joke, the priest is required to pause the ceremony and talk to the objector alone to discuss their concerns and decide if they have a valid objection.

Like it's not a fun jokey moment, it's a real legal part of the ceremony. He also said it used to be custom that if you raised an invalid objection you then had to pay for the wedding.

9. Rabies182 says:

A woman, in her 20s at the time, objected to her mom marrying my uncle. So she started yelling, 'Mom don’t marry him!' during the ceremony.

The ceremony proceeded and some family on the mom’s side lead the daughter away to quit interrupting. I don’t blame her-my uncle was a lying, lazy bastard. The marriage didn’t last.

10. FDS_MTG says:

I had a friend who was a minister, and the subject came up if he asked the question during ceremonies he officiated. He laughed and said no way. He basically tells the couple not to include it because it only invites a moment of anxiety at best, misery at worst.

His best story (and one of the reasons he stopped including the question) was a couple where the lead up to the wedding the couple was obviously in love. The bride to be was very smiley and happy. Day of the wedding she’s stone faced. He knows something is up because he’s never seen her like this and he asks if she is ok. 'I’m fine.'

Right before the service he asks again. 'I’m fine.' He gets to the question, 'Does anyone object to this union?' The bride reaches over, grabs the maid of honor, shoves her into the bride’s spot and says, 'You’re screwing him, you marry him.' And then stormed out of the church.

11. nathcrowley says:

A relative visited one ceremony where it was asked if anyone objects, and the groom decided it's a good time for a joke and said 'I do.' The lady who was going to marry the couple just turned and left. They had to go through all the paperwork again and change the date. Got married, divorced in like three years if I remember correctly.

12.ibiacmbyww says:

Priest says, 'any objections?' Father of the bride lets out the hardest, loudest, most complex-sounding sneeze I've ever heard in my life, completely with involuntarily saying 'ACHOOOOOO'

Mother of the bride, hammered on champagne says, 'for f*ck's sake, Jerry!' It took a good five minutes for everyone to regain their composure.

13. HughSteele says:

Not a wedding, but at a funeral someone objected the death. At my uncle’s funeral, his ex wife and a local church [cult] leader tried to raise him from the dead. We were all sitting there like normal people at a normal funeral and she walks up to the casket and starts yelling, 'James Lester, raise up!'

I didn’t know she was there or I would’ve prepared myself for shenanigans. Also I didn’t know my uncle’s middle name was Lester, so please imagine the confusion. So she and the cult leader are literally yelling at my uncle’s body. Not surprisingly, my uncle refused to resurrect himself. They were escorted out.

14. Lord_Banana_14 says:

One of my cousins is married to literally one of the kindest and coolest dudes I have ever met. Before the wedding, her little sister was saying how 'she’s marrying my best friend.'

At the wedding, when the priest dude asks if anyone objects, the room is dead quiet and all you hear is a little girlish whisper 'I do.' It was honestly really adorable and we all laughed, and my cousin’s husband and her little sister are still best friends.

15. Bayou_Mama says:

This was in America, and the wedding was in a Buddhist temple. Parents of the groom stood up and objected because they didn’t believe the bride was of the same class. They spoke in another language so most of the English speaking guests didn’t know they were objecting.

My husband was the best man and those closest to the couple knew this might happen. The Buddhist priest said he would handle it if the parents tried anything.

After the parents spoke for a while the priest said to the groom, 'You’ve heard what your parents had to say, what do you want to do?' The groom replied, 'I want to marry my bride.' So the priest asked the parents to leave.

At this point the rest of the guests are clueing in that this was not a nice part of the ceremony, and that the parents were actually objecting, so, as the parents walked out, some of the guests were berating them saying things like, 'You should be ashamed of yourself' and 'How could you do that?' And even though the groom was not happy with his parents, that was very hard for him to hear.

That was 30 years ago. The couple is still married. They have two beautiful, successful children. After the groom’s mom passed away, the groom’s father came around and was involved in their lives until he died.

16. Iamclavicusvile says:

My mum told me she was going to pay an old boyfriend to stand up and object at my wedding. She didn’t in the end but I did cast a quick look around in the church before walking down the aisle.

17. Husbandaru says:

The mom of one of the Bridesmaids got up and yelled 'Yeah I object: You f*cking stole him from her!' While pointing at the bride. I’ve known the groom for a long time and by proxy the bride. I am still very good friends with them. I have never seen her more infuriated than at that moment.

The bridesmaid got up from her chair and was like 'I’m so, so sorry. Let me get her out of here.' The bridesmaid and the bride’s stepfather escorted the woman out of the wedding and it continued.

18. peeweekiwis says:

I worked a wedding where one of the moms objected, but I think the groom knew that the parent was going to say something, so they just responded with, 'Oh sit down, (parents name), we knew you didn't like this a year ago, and we're not going to change our minds today.' The wedding continued as if nothing happened, but the mom was lowkey shunned, and people avoided her at the reception.

19. hundreddollar says:

I went to a Catholic wedding where, when the priest asked this question, one of the groomsmen did a VERY loud, long, throat clearing, which got everyone laughing. Everyone except for the bride's elderly Italian Grandmother who marched out of her seat and angrily hit the groomsman with her handbag and shouted at him in Italian!

20. dookieshoes88 says:

I objected. I took giving my sister away literally. I wasn't the brightest 3 year old.

21. TwistedTransistor55 says

I was the best man at my bestie's wedding. Smeone that we tolerated in our friend group, objected and said he was in love with the bride and that he was the only one that could make her happy. She had been nice about his feelings until then and reminded him in front of the entire ceremony that A: he could't hold down a job because he had too big of an ego.

B: Didn't get along with her friends because they all had something they were working on (A book, a career, a trip, volunteer job) and he had nothing so he constantly tried to downplay their accomplishments on purely presumptuous ideas and C: His idea of sex was 'blow me and I'll finger you. Night, hun.'

She was way more thorough and more cruel and it was a hysterical five minute ordeal. I mean he had it coming or starting sh*t at her wedding. He got up and left. I was pretty sure he was crying as he walked away, but no one went after him.

It was both brutal and hilarious. He was like the Jar Jar Binks of our friend group: you hated him but he made you feel better because at least you weren't as bad as Peter.
