When you get engaged to get married, there’s a lot of work involved in actually planning a wedding, but at least you can look forward to your respective bachelor and bachelorette parties and the wedding day itself.
However, sometimes things aren’t as wholesome as they should be. These men on Reddit shared the biggest wedding and bachelor(ette) party disasters they’ve ever seen.
This Is Lucky
“My brother-in-law went go-karting for his bachelor party. While driving, he fell off, faceplanted, and got gravel rash all down the side of his face right before the wedding.
“He went to the hospital and got it bandaged. The dressings didn’t come off until the morning of the actual wedding, but luckily he was 100% healed.”
That Must Have Been An Embarrassing Trip To The ER
“I’ve only ever been to one, but a stripper made the groom lie down, attempted to rip his underwear off wedgie style, and gave him a testicular torsion. He didn’t tell anyone, just carried on as white as a sheet and went to the hospital in the morning with a giant purple nut.”
That Poor Woman…
“A friend of mine worked as a bartender and told me that this 26-year-old girl was celebrating her bachelorette party when she was sent a video of her fiancé having sex with another woman at his bachelor party. For almost an hour, he had to act like this girl’s therapist until she stumbled off into the night still depressed at the way things turned out.”
The Lack Of Forethought On His Part
“I know a guy who met girls while in Vegas in the early 2000s and gave out his (home) phone number. These women proceeded to contact his wife. His wife picked him up from the airport and dropped him off at another hotel.”
A Little Over His Original Budget
“My buddy smashed his face on the first night of the bachelor trip. He passed out in the hotel wearing socks then got up to go to the bathroom and slipped on the marble floor. His teeth went through his mouth. Blood everywhere. We called hotel staff to help. EMTs came, and two of us took him to an emergency dentist. It totaled $8,000 in dental work.
It’s Not Even Your Party, Dude
“Nothing worse than when one of the friends to the groom had a massive drunken meltdown over the fact that we weren’t going to a strip club for the bachelor party—ugly crying and everything.”
He Chose The Honeymoon To Confess?
“My old boss cheated on his bachelor party night, then swore all his friends to secrecy and went through with the wedding. He confessed to his wife on the first night of their honeymoon out of guilt. Married and split up within one week!”
The Evolved Version Of Carrie At Prom
“We are Greek-Americans. And not many Greeks actually break plates at weddings. But this bride insisted on breaking plates. So people are dancing and others are breaking plates. The bride (and others) are kneeling in a circle clapping around the people dancing.. and all the plates being thrown.
“And as you could guess, a piece hit the bride in the face right under her eye and she started gushing blood all over. Her dress looks like it’s out of a horror film.”
The Fakeness Is Unbearable
“A girl I had dated for a while three years ago has since got engaged to someone else. We had no contact for these years until her bachelorette weekend.
“She texted me on all socials at once to get my attention, likely drunk. She spent the entire three-day weekend of her trip bragging to me about the last go she was having which included her cheating on her fiancé twice, and talked heaps of trash about her husband to be. After the trip, she was back to posting about the ‘love of her life.’ The experience really ruined the idea of marriage for me.”
I Choked Reading The Second Sentence
“I was at a bachelor party in my early 20s for a friend and he got a private room with a stripper and had intercourse with her. Don’t talk to him anymore for other reasons such as him being dead, but the marriage fell apart pretty quickly.”
At Least He Acknowledges His Faults
“Totally caused by ME. I drank too much free champagne and I got chucked out of the reception for saying out loud the groom’s sister was ugly. I was ousted from the friend group. Totally deserved, I was out of order and extremely drunk.”
‘Til The Reception Do Us Part
“The groom was caught hooking up with one of the bridesmaids in the reception room, where liquor was stored.”
There’s nothing like confessing your undying love for one woman and then making out with her friend, am I right?
This Is Actually So Sad
“A guy my cousin vaguely knew died at his bachelor party. His friends came to kidnap him, rolled him into a carpet so he couldn’t move, put the carpet upright in the corner, and left him there for several hours as a prank. The problem is that they left him upside down, and no one can survive being left upside down for hours on end, so when the friends came back to really start the bachelor party they found him dead as they unrolled the carpet.”
I Wish It Had Been A Joke
“I had an old friend-with-benefits invite me to her wedding so she could blow me in her wedding dress. I called her immediately after seeing this (it was a bunch of texts), not to confirm but rather see if she: a) had her phone stolen b) pranked by another person, or c) was actually serious. She was dead serious.”
They See It All Go Down
“Wedding videographer here. I have full-on seen people get married, sign the paperwork, and the dude goes off to hook up with a bridesmaid the wedding night. It’s honestly impressive how little time it takes to end that marriage.”
This Is Such A Horrible Accident
“I was at my uncle’s fiancée’s bachelorette party. The next morning, we wake up and her engagement ring is missing. Her drunk brain reasoned it was safer to take her ring off to wash her hands in the club but she never put it back on after. We tried calling the place, but they never found it.
“Probably made worse by the fact the ring was the groom’s mother’s engagement ring and she had picked him out of her seven sons to take the ring for his fiancée. The groom was very cool about it and she felt terrible about the whole thing, but they ended up having to get a lookalike for the wedding a few weeks later.”
Started With Engagement, Ending In Murder
“Well, recently in Sydney, a guy choked his mother while an engagement party was happening and then got fatally shot in the leg when he drew a gun on police… I’d say that’s a pretty big mess up on his behalf.”
They Might Not Actually Be Ready For Marriage
“I used to strip at bachelorette parties. Some of the brides-to-be were way too physical (using their hands and mouths) in ways I sometimes wondered if marriage at that point was a good idea for them.”
The Party Is Over!!!
“I was at a wedding reception that got shut down early because the venue staff caught one of the wedding party—very possibly the groom—doing coke in the bathroom. This was at the nicest country club in a major city. This combined with other disasters made for one of the worst nights of my life.”
Finally, Some Wholesome Content To Finish Up
“I have the opposite sort of story, my friend ‘rented’ a sloth and had a very quiet bachelor party where they fed it sweet potatoes. It was apparently fun and cute.
“The sloth came from a conservation organization, and you can pay for a ‘sloth experience’ in your home where a guy comes over with the sloth and you hang out for a while.”
