‘The bride’s ex arrived drunk’: your appalling marry narrations

Three-day bridals are becoming the norm but Country Life has called for self-restraint. We asked about the extravagant ceremonies youve been invited to

Country Life magazine has suggested couples favour quality over length when it comes to bridals, with ceremonies now the nuptial equivalent of an forearms hasten. We expected our readers to share their experiences of the luxury bridals they accompanied. Here is a selection of replies, with some figures changed to protect peoples identities.

A girlfriend from university leased out an entire Long Island, NY, country club. First, it was incredibly cold. Who has bridals in New York in January unless theyre storming sadists? This wouldnt have been so bad if everything had been inside, but the bride and groom decided to take advantage of the cold and have ice skating on the frozen wading pool of the squad. I cannot recommend not ice skating in an evening gown strongly enough.

Im told the cost for booze alone( with 500 clients) came to over $10,000, which had the benefit of amounting us to the excess. The foreground of the day was when the brides ex-boyfriend evidenced up uninvited and wino. He deprived in the cold and demanded to speak with the bride refusing to made his paraphernalium back on until she did. All best available bridals are commemorated out by either their wretched excess or their enormou omissions. This one had both by the carload.

I went to a lavish wed in Barbados several years ago, moved it into a holiday and stayed for two weeks. The wedding household stayed in Fustic House which expense 5,000 per night. The majority of clients leased large colonial-style residences on the Platinum Coast for the two-week interval. Our mansion had two swimming pools and wild apes in the back garden. For the two weeks my partner at the time and I spent in the boundaries of 4,000 -5, 000 between us.

In the week prior to the wed, beach states parties and boozing generally started at 10:30 am. Lots of rum sours were boozed from morning to night. Cocaine was sourced readily from locals to the extent that when the group went into township the traders curved at us. Those who took drugs went to bed when I was get up in the morning at around 8am. One occasion involved going to watch Cheshire Polo( some of the working group knew players in the team ). We gratified the chairmen of Barbados who hovered in his helicopter to watch the game.

I formerly accompanied an Anglo-Pakistani wedding ceremony at York Cathedral where we were chauffeured in individual horse-carriages to the Royal York Hotel where the bride and groom arrived by helicopter. The climate was charming as it was a red-hot summertimes daylight, but apache helicopters property was a shamblings as the brides dress ripped while she was get out. The groom didnt is felt that bothered though as he already had a bottle of something in his hand.

The wedding was really out of this world. Chefs were run in from Pakistan to help with catering and my daddy told me the bridegrooms papa took a second mortgage out to pay for it all. At one point I questioned how I knew these beings. It was like something out of a Bollywood film.

My acquaintances got married seven years ago during a two-week long wed in the Caribbean. During the two weeks there used to be daily voyages on personal catamarans, a day-long seven-island ship tour, snorkelling off a reef out at sea and a free rail as part of an all-inclusive container for clients. The wedding itself has just taken place in the shade of some trees on the beach. Afterwards, there was a private disco and dinner in a restaurant, followed by clubbing till 2am, then a casino. I expended around 1,700 when I was there.

Prior to the wedding the groom had a three-day stag night in the UK followed by another one in the Caribbean. We had a race car driving know, surfing exercises and ringside posteriors to a drunken brawl after the other stag ended up overdoing it. I must admit at the start of the second week I was ready to go, as the wed was over and we were just waiting to go home my best friend were abiding there for another week for their honeymoon. Even quad biking around the island and incessant boozing could not strangled the feeling that it was time to go.

In 2010 I went to the wedding of my ex-husbands boss. The ritual has just taken place in a extremely fancy Footballers Wives-type hotel in Surrey. Wed booked an everyday area but the groom had paid for everyone to be upgraded to suites with their own garden. He too withdrew 10,000 in currency the previous day only to pay for all the various entertainers not including the cost of the hotel, food and glass of course.

We arrived to a string quadruplet, and the acrobats sounded shortly after that and did a number while we booze champagne before the meal.The starter was asparagus whore, and as there had been so much champagne before the dinner, there was a rush for the loo before the main course. The smell of asparagus wee when you opened the door to the dames was extraordinary.

We then went into dinner “where theres” magicians cultivating the tables. Just before pudding, the waiters burst into song they were good and it was actually quite funny. The whole happen was absolutely ridiculous and had nothing at all to do with two beings donating their love to one another. And by 4am the hotel had solely run out of champagne, apparently. Quite the most horrible and hitherto astounding wedding Ive ever been to.
