The Bride Wore a Diaper
Stress can do strange things to people, and never are you under so much stress as when you plan a big expensive wedding. Meet the unfortunate bride who was so stressed out that she ended up in a diaper on her big day.
When planning a big wedding stress weighs heavy on the bride to be. If ever there was a reason to step back and re-think your wedding plans, the following account would be it.
If you are planning a wedding, you probably have heard every wedding horror story out there by now. Urban legends abound in wedding disasters. Unfortunately, most of the stories are 100% true. I was an eye witness to the bride in the diaper debacle, and I can tell you, I will never look at weddings in the same way again. All the romance and loveliness that weddings should be are now overshadowed by that one horrific event, and the really bad part is….everyone who was at the wedding remembers only that the bride wore a diaper and little else.
I have three weddings of my own under my belt, plus I was a bridesmaid in countless weddings. Believe me, I know weddings! I can simply look at a photograph of a wedding and tell you exactly what year it took place from the style of the wedding dress. When it comes to weddings I have seen it all, from a vomiting groom to a comatose bride that was hauled to the hospital in all her finery. It got to the point where I could figure out a potential wedding disaster long before it was destined to happen. However, a bride in a diaper was something I never imagined. Not even in my wildest dreams.
If people knew of all the embarrassing episodes waiting to explode on their big day, they would probably run away screaming to the justice of the peace. Never are you open to disaster at any other time in your life as when you decide you want a big wedding. If something can go wrong, it probably will, and big weddings seem to be especially jinxed. I mean people are basically putting on a Hollywood production without the benefit of experience. If they think hiring a wedding planner is going to help, they are badly mistaken. From my vast experience a wedding planner just adds another element of tension.
Rule number one when you are planning a big wedding, “try not to embarrass yourself”. People think a wedding disaster will never happen to them, but the odds are it will. The bigger the wedding, the better the chance that something will go horrifically wrong! Our bride who wore a diaper probably wishes someone gave her this advice. But the question is, would she have listened?
