Dear Viewers: With marriage ceremony season on us and in-individual celebrations returning, I made the decision to devote a column to wedding mishaps – all sent in by readers.
Maybe studying about some of the things that can go incorrect at a wedding will inspire folks to steer clear of these pitfalls.
And if these incidents simply cannot be avoided, marrying couples can try to embrace them and snicker about it all afterwards.
So choose your seat at the “singles” desk – and appreciate!

Halfway as a result of the ceremony, his stoner buddy from large school arrived in a canoe, stumbled ashore, and wobbled his way up the property in full check out of the friends. Hilarious backdrop!
