As the story goes, my parents’ wedding was officiated by my mother’s grandfather. When asked if there were any objections to my parents’ wedding, my father’s parents rose and stood silently. This was not a surprise; my mother and my father’s parents did NOT get along at all. Everyone knew this, so it wasn’t a surprise.
In response to their silent disapproval, my great-grandfather lauded their silent standing by saying something along the lines of “Ah, the parents of the groom have risen in support of the couple. Thank you!”
It’s unclear how the attendees responded, but my paternal grandparents left silently at that point. I never met them, but I think I’m glad I didn’t
I was at a wedding where there were three parties: the bride's, the groom's, and the groom's mother's. She hated the bride, thought she was not good enough for her son, etc. I was friends with both bride and groom, and they had to invite the groom's mom and dad, but they had the priest avoid the "Objection" part of the ceremony.
At the reception, there was a moment where the groom's father danced with the bride, and a few minutes later she stormed off the dance floor. The groom's dad had offered her $5,000 cash to walk away right then and there and have the marriage annulled. The reception featured a flambeau entrée, and everybody was watching the groom's mother, half expecting her to grab one of the flaming skewers from one of the waiters and hurl it at the bride.
They're still married 30 years later and have two kids, but I believe they are estranged from the groom's family for some reason...
My wife's uncle (who owned the farm we were getting married) stood up at the objection part. Immediately, his son (who was the man of honor) yelled at him to sit down. To his credit he did. For about 12 seconds then stood up again. He objected because there was a big f--king storm coming up the driveway and about to smack the ceremony and all of our hurrying couldn't beat it. My wife made it inside before getting drenched...no one else did. Got married inside instead.
Not my wedding but at a friends, a family member paid some kid $20 to run in and say "Daddy don't marry that woman!" like it was his child. Did not go over well as a prank at all....
It wasn't verbal, and no one will admit it was 100% on purpose.My husband's grandmother intentionally made him an hour late to our wedding, hoping we would just call it off.
She gave him directions to her timeshare that was her gift to us for the wedding night, and where he was supposed to get ready - except she conveniently gave him the wrong one. The one that was on the other side of the city from both the wedding and the correct one, and that he had to cross Interstate 4 (one of the worst highways in Florida, and possibly America) during 5pm traffic on a weekday to get to the wedding from.
Everyone chalked it up to "oh, she's a senile old lady, she just got mixed up."
No she wasn't, and no she didn't. She was only senile when she could use it as a cover for being malicious. I could detail many other examples, but I won't.
What happened? The wedding started an hour late, so we lost an hour of the reception, and we're still married 13 years later.
My dad's seen an objection - he volunteers at a church. The bride and groom were siblings, and their father hadn't told them until he objected (I believe he was estranged to both of them). They already had a kid apparently.
I grew up in a super fundamentalist Christian community. My best friend fell in love, but her parents were pissed because they wanted to do an arranged marriage for her, so they locked her in the house for months. Finally I helped her escape and she got married in a very small ceremony.
She used to be very close to her brother, so she invited him. He was also angry about her eloping, so he wore all black, including black sunglasses, and stood there looking pissed the whole time.
We specifically asked the pastor to not do the "does anyone object" thing because we didn't want to give anyone the chance. When her brother realized the pastor wasn't going to say it, he tried to stop the wedding anyway. My brothers had to escort him out.
The whole thing was f--king heartbreaking.
It didn’t quite happen but a work friend who was a libertarian had planned to stand up during my wedding ceremony and deliver a speech objecting organised marriage as a form of government control, explaining that it’s wrong to be forced to register your relationship with the state in order for it to be legally recognised and such. Luckily he shared his plan with someone with similar political views who convinced him it would have been a jerk move so instead he no showed and put a long post on Facebook about his reasons for “conscientiously objecting”.
My mum's sister in law (my dad's brothers wife) rang the church and reception and said the bride and groom had split up and the wedding was off.
They only found out as a different guest went to the venue to scope out parking, and was told it was off, and he rang my dad.
The venue had cancelled everything, caterers, dj, etc. They didn't check with the bride and groom as what close family member can cells when it's not actually cancelled.
Anyway, the wedding went ahead. Reorganised ww a couple of days. Different food than planned, different photographer, some of the decorations weren't there. But the venue really did try to put it right and by all accounts did a surprisingly good job.
Anyway. Nothing like a bit of family drama for a wedding.
I objected to my sister marrying her second husband six months after her divorce... she told me to f*#! Off. Married him anyway... they now have 3 kids and are happily married
My mother wrote 'help me' on the bottom of my shoes so when we kneeled during the ceremony everyone behind us would see it. It was pretty passive aggressive. But she wasn't wrong. Marriage lasted less than a year.
One of my best friends in my twenties got engaged to a very pretty girl who was throwing off more and more red flags the longer we got to know her.
When he told my roommate and I that he was engaged I told him straight up that I could not let him get married without voicing my concern at his choice, and that I should politely avoid attending, because I thought it was such a bad idea (my roommate also said he was very concerned as well). I also mentioned that he might want to keep my opinion to himself to keep the peace with his fiance.
He didn't, and she ended up screaming, "Them or me!" At him on the phone while we were hanging out with him, loud enough that we could hear her as he held the phone away from his ear. So he chose her and cut ties with us that day.
About a decade later I hear from my then ex-roommate, that he has resurfaced on Facebook after she had demanded he cut ties with most of his friends, then subjected him to years of emotional and physical abuse, then cheated on him and finally divorced him...
13.u/dontlooksosurprised: My whole family and all friends objected to me marrying my first husband…..so we eloped on a whim after knowing each other 2 months. In retrospect it wasn’t wise to marry a dude straight out of rehab, a decade older than me at that. But, hey, 19 year olds do as they do amiright? ….miserably I stuck around through 5 years of abuse; continued relapses, got choked out on the floor during one of his manic episodes, only found out later he also had hep C, drained my bank account twice, cheated, left multiple times without explanation….the list goes on….
part of me wishes I would’ve divorced him sooner, but part of me feels it was for the best only because the timing led me to the true love of my life who I’ve now married, been with 3 years, and have a daughter with. Oh, and ALL my family couldn’t be happier and more supportive of this union….he’s night and day from my ex…..just a really phenomenal individual
Girl I worked with broke up with her boyfriend. Meets and starts dating a new guy shortly after. Year later engaged, couple months later and they are getting married. Ceremony is outdoors about 45 minutes from town.
Guests start arriving, we start sitting down for the ceremony to start. Her ex boyfriend shows up... He's clearly been drinking and looks like s--t. Some people who were mutual friends between the two of them go up and try and get him to leave, he just keeps screaming that he just wants to talk to her. She's not there yet, but it's literally like out of a movie, drunk guy scream "Hannah I love you!". There's a crowd around him asking him to leave, he starts pushing people. Gets put in headlock and brought to the ground, finally gives up and one of their mutual friends gets him in their car and drives him back to town.
Somehow this happens before the wedding parties get there. A family member stands up, and just said "Obviously they are going to find out about this, but we ask that you please just wait till tomorrow to bring it up, don't let this asshole wreck the wedding day"
Wedding party arrives, ceremony goes on with them never knowing. Reception is back at town, reception goes on with out a problem. But sadly someone leaked it to her drunkenly that night and kind of killed the vibe. It was so close to not having any effect on the actual wedding.
My uncle, who dearly loves my wife and I, brought me to the riverboat we had chartered to get married on by the Captain. He has been married a few times and he stopped the car a block away, looked at me, and asked me if I was 100% confident that I wanted to go through with it. He said if I wasn’t 100% sure, I could get out and he would go and handle everything at the ceremony. He wasn’t being rude or crude but was letting me know that I had an out if I felt I needed it for any reason. He never question my answer or tried to talk me out of it in any way when I said I was indeed ready and 100% sure that she was the one. We have been married now for 11 years and he is still a big part of our lives. Everyone needs that crazy Uncle Bill.
My older sister’s wedding in Vegas. Groom who is still my brother in law, and is a pretty f--king kickass dude (made me a knife and engraved it). Had a kid with my sister, nephew is also awesome and they had their second a year or two ago.
Sister’s biological mother objected last moment. To give background information, my sister and the rest of my family DO NOT f--king like this lady, not any of this ladies family. She is actually insane and has had so many kids it’s insane, there is also thoughts that all the other kids are incest related as a good few of them have major and minor deformations. Along with the lady and the guy she had the kids with, look VERY alike. Anyways, bio mother objects, and start spewing this stuff that she used before to manipulate my sister into doing what SHE wanted.
My grandfather, who is 89 now, very scrawny, 6’2”, and an English professor, pipes up and says “I’m 87 you bitch but if you don’t shut up right now I’ll put all 87 years of my fist into your face.” To which the lady replied in a sarcastic tone, which caused my brother in law’s brother and I to get up and escort the bad side of the family (if you could count that side as a part of the family) out of the venue.
Not exactly an objection, but…Mother-in-law of the groom got lit and made a speech during the reception about how hot her new son-in-law was and that her daughter better keep an eye on him or she’d steal him away. Cringeworthy uncomfortable for about five minutes until her husband gently took the mic away and escorted her out and they left.
My wife cheated on me with the man her sister ended up marrying a few years later.
I seriously considered going incognito to the wedding and when they asked if anyone objected to then stand up and say "She does!" while pointing at my ex who would have been the bridesmaid. Pretty sure she never told her sister she forked her husband first.
Not an official objection, but when my mum was marrying my dad, my grandpa (her dad) circled her around the church over and over again telling her he didn’t have to stop, she didn’t have to go in, and they could just drive away.
It didn’t work. They’re still married 30+ years later. Eventually grandpa learned to like dad.
I'm a minister, and I've performed many weddings. Never have I asked if anyone objected, nor has anyone ever done so. We try to work all that out in premarital counseling.
