People Reveal What Makes Them Uncomfortable At Weddings

[rebelmouse-image 18355618 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Ah, weddings - they are always so interesting. And showing up solo always adds a, uh, another level to the experience. Here we have some real gems of awkward wedding stories, and I can't help but wonder if future newlyweds will pay them any heed. Oh, and spoiler alert: I'm a terrible wedding guest.

Alayafatima01 asked, What is something that makes you uncomfortable at weddings?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

We spent all this money on gifts and travel - the least y'all can do is start on time. Or get us drunk while we wait.

Weddings that start 45 minutes late (or more) as you sit in uncomfortable church pews - especially on hot summer days when the building doesn't have air conditioning.

They had to protect the coven from their broken bond.

I was at a wedding where the Bride's former sorority sisters did some kneeling ritual in front of her to "release" her to her husband. It was the most awkward thing I have ever seen.

It's especially cruel when there's no open bar.

Interacting with family members you haven't seen in years because you actually hate them.

Me, every time: "I don't have a plus one." *Brings flask*

[rebelmouse-image 18355621 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being the only single person there, and it's glaringly obvious that I completely threw off the seating plan.

And everyone around you is a straight married couple with kids and and a mortgage. Whatever, I'm cuter.

[rebelmouse-image 18355623 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sitting there awkwardly, trying not to look bored, wondering how long you have to stay because the only people you know are the bride and groom.

This is the tackiest of tacky attention-stealing moves.

[rebelmouse-image 18355624 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who propose at other people's weddings.

Juicy gossip is THE BEST part of weddings.

[rebelmouse-image 18355625 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The guests who complain about and pick apart the ceremony and reception to anyone they can drag into a conversation. Would it kill them to be happy for anyone else for once?

I know you're getting married but what about meeeeeeeeeeee...

[rebelmouse-image 18349109 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who are not the ones who are getting married, but try to make the wedding all about them anyway, like for example a poor girl whose narcissistic mother dressed all in white and tried to focus everybody's attention on herself.

Oh, I hated that woman so much...

Video-bomb everything, but tastefully - for the most part.

[rebelmouse-image 18355627 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The videographer.

Yes, I am in the buffet line selflessly doing my part to ensure that the new couple has no leftovers. But they may not want this on their cherished tape.

There's always one, and it's never disappointing. "Like that time in Thailand with that stripper..."

[rebelmouse-image 18355628 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The friend of the groom who always thinks it's funny to make cringe-worthy sex jokes.

My fabulous tuxedo is all the explanation you people need.

[rebelmouse-image 18355629 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Showing up solo and getting an assigned seat at a table full of couples.

They judged me for triple-fisting but who's laughing now?

[rebelmouse-image 18355631 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The hour during dinner where the open bar closes.

"My cats are a lot of work."

[rebelmouse-image 18355632 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When everyone says "you're next" or "so, when are you going to get married?" I'm 21!!!!

It's like "Poetry in Motion" except the train is stuck in the tunnel and it's 97 degrees.

[rebelmouse-image 18355633 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Original poems - especially when there are four of them.

Nothing like listening to inside joke after inside joke...

[rebelmouse-image 18355634 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The "Toasts" to the bride and groom. They can be very cringe-worthy.

This is when the open bar comes in handy. They'll find me.

[rebelmouse-image 18355635 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Standing around awkwardly waiting for the newlyweds to be done with a long line of well-wishers so you can do the same and possibly nab a photo with them.

Oh mister husband is going to be sorely disappointed.

[rebelmouse-image 18355636 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

This isn't at weddings in general, but a wedding I went to.

Long-time, childhood friend was getting married about four years ago. Their friend, a pastor, was officiating the ceremony. He read passages from The Bible, spoke on love and it's connection to Christianity, how this union was blessed by God, etc.. In all that, he nonchalantly dropped a brief bit about how my friend now owned his wife. Like cattle. Then he carried on as if that wasn't weird at all. Nobody seemed to react to it except my two other buddies and I. We turned to each other and mouthed "what the f_ck?".

Sloppy drunk selfies while "Cotton-Eyed Joe" makes its third round...

[rebelmouse-image 18355639 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Wedding guests trying too hard to take photos of it all, especially with a flash, and ruining the professional and well-paid photographer's photo.

As a wedding DJ, kids on the dance floor completely kill the dance floor.

A wildly inappropriate Halloween wedding? Count. Me. In.

[rebelmouse-image 18355640 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People complaining about the food. The FREE food.

Also, this may not be totally related but my best buddy had his wedding on Halloween because he and new wife are like that and some of the women's costumes were wildly inappropriate. Also open bar and free tattoos. Some people got the worst tats I've ever seen

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.

RedditorVirtual_Welder_4525wanted to hear from those willing to spill a little tea about some bedmates. They asked:

"People who knowingly have slept with someone who was in a relationship, why did you do it?"
