My wedding had the drama of DH SIL, she informed us prior to the wedding she wanted to be seated next to X - so we did the seat plan up just to keep the peace (and if shes happy their shouldn't be dramas), a couple weeks out she informed us no she will feed her girls prior to the reception so don't bother having a meal setup for them. Fast forward to wedding day - she tracked down where we were having photos taken as her "girls" were missing their dad (one of the bestman's) just as we were leaving to head back to reception, at the reception she changed where she wanted to be seated then when the kids meals came out she kicked up a fuss but thankfully the staff of the restuarant had spares and quickly resolved that drama.
Somewhere along the night she was drunk and demanded more wine and staff refused - sean sent his dad to tell his brother to sort her out as she was then attempting to argue with staff in the kitchen over the refusal to be served. That was the last we saw of all 3 until the very end when we went back to the resort where everyone was staying to overhear a major blowup between, SIL, BIL & FIL - so as all photos taken with guests was done during the reception we ended up with none of FIL, BIL, SIL or the kids.

Overall i can state Sean's uncle did a great job as he was given permission by us in advance to keep her antics from becoming centre stage.

We had two people 'under watch' at our wedding too!

One is the sort to have a few too many wines and grab the microphone to tell an indiscreet or inappropriate anecdote. Always in good fun, but just not something I fancied giving them a chance to do! We sat them as far away from the microphone as possible and asked a mutual friend to keep an eye on them.

The other would not have caused a scene as such - but might have used the opportunity to harangue guests about another matter when it really wasn't the time or place. Happily in the run-up to the wedding a few other guests aware of the situation suggested we seat that person with them - offering to keep them occupied.

Neither misbehaved on the day!

Some of these are truly atrocious ... I feel sorry for some (but have laughed about others ph34r.gif blush.gif )

Mine was tragic ... but I try not to dwell on it - I married the man I wanted and have resolved to the fact that sometimes families do truly suck!

I haven't been to a "bad" wedding as such.

The 2 most recent weddings I liked the least though.

The most recent because the bride had gotten cold feet just a few days prior and it was all over Facebook - seriously when will people learn not to put certain info out there like that, so for me it just felt weird on the day. The food was terrible and the bride's mother made this long speech including things like "and when X was in year 5 she got an award for a clean desk" blah blah blah, it was truly painful.

The wedding before that was interstate, Ben was only 6 months old so he came with us. The venue, food etc etc was all great but I am just a no kiddies at weddings person myself so while DH and I shared parenting duties throughout the night it just didn't feel the same. All of our freinds who also took their kiddies pretty much said the same thing. Leaving little kiddies at home though would have been hard as you couldn't get daily flights from Sydney so we had to stay several days. The bride and groom's fathers both gave long speeches too, and I just find long speeches so boring. The father of the groom went on for so long that the groom called for a cigarette break half way through, I think because he felt bad for the guests laugh.gif The hen's night 2 days earlier however was fantastic laugh.gif

We still get good feedback about our wedding 4.5 years later which is great.
