Get ready to cringe.

By Prudence Wade

Weddings are often memorable in more ways than one. Sure, you might immediately think of the couple’s first dance or their moving vows… or, conversely, you could instead think of the shocking behaviour of one of the wedding guests.

There always seems to be one person who accidentally has a few too many and does something particularly awkward.

Showing that there is no shortage of cringeworthy stories, people took to Reddit to share their memories of the worst behaviour they’ve ever seen at a wedding – and here they are (some are edited for brevity).

The big whoops

“I photographed a wedding back in 2015, wherein during his speech at the reception, the best man inadvertently revealed to the 200+ guests that the bride was pregnant. Up until that point, only a very select few people knew. The look of pure rage/shock/embarrassment she gave him was staggering” – shaoting
