'Horrified' guest's wedding photo goes viral: 'The entire room was forced to watch'

A wedding can be an absolutely magical celebration of two people’s love for each other, complete with good food, good music and good company.

However, the unique combination of family members meeting for the first time, high-flying emotions and free-flowing drinks can create a pressure-cooker environment bound to produce at least a few awkward moments.

For those of you who have experienced the latter scenario, people on Reddit are currently commiserating over their “cringiest” wedding memories — and we’re dying of second-hand embarrassment.

“You know those slightly off-looking Mickey and Minnie mouses you see in NYC?” one user shared. “Yeah, they showed up for the first dance because the bride loved Disney.”

“The entire room was forced to watch bride and groom dance alongside a deformed Mickey and Minnie, and halfway through they switched so the bride was dancing with Mickey and the groom with Minnie. I’ve never seen such a strange combination of stifled laughter and horrified stares.”

“Dated a girl in my 20s and went to her friend’s wedding in upstate New York,” another user wrote. “In the middle of the service the minister’s cell phone rang, he answered, it was ‘God,’ God wanted to talk to the groom, conversation lasted a couple minutes, then the ceremony continued.”

“The minister (or pastor?) used to date the bride and gushed about how wonderful she was,” said one Redditor. “Told the groom if he ever died not to worry, he’d take care of her. I was shell shocked. I so wished I could think of a reason to ask the couple for a copy of the video of their wedding but couldn’t quite find a legit one.”

Musical Vows

“They sang their vows to each other. Neither had a singing voice,” shared another scarred-for-life user. “The autotune microphones were a terrible idea. Their vow songs shared a chorus and it was awful and they expected the guests to sing along with the chorus. The vows singing lasted 20 minutes. Pure cringe.”

The Missing Groom

“The groomsman prepared a skit in which they ‘lost’ the groom at the reception and proceeded with over the top hands on hips ‘Hey guys- Arent we forgetting SOMETHING? Well , where can he POSSiBLY Beeeeee?’ acting like some high school musical,” wrote one person. “None of the guest were prepared and silently fussed around with their drinks and silverware. When the whole thing ended, they anticipated like a standing ovation but it went over the heads of everyone. A lone voice muttered ‘That was kinda wierd…’ as they made their exit quietly.”
