I guess it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise that I’ve seen some crazy things happen at wedding receptions; I’ve entertained at over 2000 of them. How can I forget that groom who knocked his wife unconscious after smashing the wedding cake into her face. Or the even more memorable kick in the balls he received from the Bride’s sister, directly after the incident. I have fond memories of the sloppy-drunk Maid Of Honor who fell over while dancing, sending her legs flying in to the air, and unknowingly letting everyone in the room know that she prefers Brazilian bikini wax jobs over the traditional. I’ve even had three wedding receptions where someone had a heart attack.
But one of my favorites was the reception where all of the groomsmen jumped into the swimming pool of the hotel, with their tuxedos on, before the reception actually started. The Bride’s father threatened all of them, saying if they were not back to the reception with new tuxedos within an hour, he would kill all of them. Very God Father-ish and very memorable. That particular story of mine was published in the book OMG! Wedding Stories: Hilarious, Outrageous, Embarrassing, Shocking, & Bizarre Wedding Stories“.
