What event is more stressful than a wedding? The answer This is the bride and groom's day — their one big day — to get everything right; to throw a massive, unforgettable party for everyone who's ever mattered to them in their entire lives; to embark on a new chapter in their shared story that has to go perfect or risk being seen forever by every guest in attendance as a harbinger of the inevitable divorce.
Also, you have to get the seating chart right, and that's just such a headache.
And now Jimmy Fallon is holding up a magnifying glass on the worst moments of the best days of these couples' lives. The Tonight Show host asked Twitter to send him their most jaw-dropping #WeddingFail moments, and as it so often is when any celebrity is crowd-sourcing silly-yet-cringe-inducing experiences, the internet showed up for it.
Weddings are slipperier than you think.

This right here was Jimmy's call to action.
It’s Hashtags time! Tag a tweet with #WeddingFail and then tell us a funny or weird story from a wedding you were at. Could be on the show!— jimmy fallon (@jimmy fallon)1560868823.0

An open grave?I must have read this wrong. It has to be a typo. No one gets married anywhere near an open grave, right? My goth friend Helena got married with a bouquet of black roses and released bats instead of doves after they said their vows, and even she was like, "Keep my wedding away from a graveyard."
The day you get married is the day you're supposed to stop getting ghosted.

Awkward.If a wedding bartender's number one job is not getting kids drunk as hell, a wedding DJ's number one job has to be not making the bride embarrassed as hell. But don't worry! This story has a happy ending! The father and daughter did not get it on.

You had me until "throw the bouquet without me."There are simple explanations for most of the wedding fails listed here — horny people get wrapped up in the idea of love and can't control themselves. The uncle/ officiant is miffed about his niece changing her last name since it's probably his last name too. But how does a DJ throw the bouquet without the bride? Like, who throws it? A ghost?
Maybe the registry was full.
