What was the biggest blunder on your wedding day?
Did you forget something? Did something break or rip? Who didn't show up? We almost had to wash dishes at my wedding reception because my father forgot to bring the check to pay for the reception hall. He had to drive all the way home to get it. (LOL!)
My wife and I were married outside the U.S. We realized a few hours before the wedding that we didn't even reserve a car/driver to get us away from the reception! We had to have someone flag a taxi for us.... romantic, huh?
All kidding aside; neither of us was ready for the responsiblities and commitments of marriage. We have two grown daughters and manage to be supportive, encouraging, and actually nicer to one another than 45 years ago on that wedding day.
We didn't know each other well enough to get married. We had been dating 3 months. After we got married we both thought - oh my God what have I done. We stuck with it though and are still married 43 years later. It worked out very nicely, after a rough start.
Our marriage was a rush job with 3 weeks to plan (we decided on the spur of the moment and had only a few weeks until my visitor's visa expired). I'm English, my husband American, and we had the wedding in America. I sort of assumed nobody from England would come at such short notice so I didn't bother to actually invite anyone... turns out it's polite to at least offer... even so, it was a fantastic day and my sister made it all the way from England to do my makeup and represent my side of the family.

Have you ever been to a themed wedding reception?My wife and I have been invited to a wedding at which the reception has a Casino theme. Although we've heard about themed weddings this is the first we will have attended. We are wondering if a themed reception is a good idea or just a gimmick.

What is the biggest writing blunder you have ever read?Whether content on the internet or in a hardback book, what is the biggest mistake you have ever read? For instance, one time I saw a paragraph repeated twice in a hardback book.
