Groom skips out before wedding

Postby At Last Productions » Sun Oct 29, 2006 2:05 am

I had a NON-wedding wedding tonight. The Groom showed up for pictures and setting up the reception before hand. Was in his tux waiting in the side room for the wedding to begin, But dissapeared before the wedding only to call his sister's cell phone who was sitting in the crowd waiting for the ceremony to start. He told his sister he couldn't do it that he had left the location. The Bride was waiting to walk in - attendants were lined up. - I had started playing the music for the attendants - when suddenly the priest was in a panic - needless to say the rest of the night was weird - people stuck around - but it wasn't a party - they ate and left. We tried to play some up beat music - just didnt work.

Anyone else ever have some like this happen to them?

Nope, not me, thank goodness! Must have been a tough event to program. What kind of music DOES a dj play for such a thing? "Love Don't Live Here Anymore"? Or "You Dropped A Bomb On Me"? :shock:

Never had that happen.

You're from Georgia?

Isn't that where the "Runaway Bride" from like a year ago was from?

What's up with that?

Oh man that sucks!!

I wouldn't even play any music, espeically what Steve suggested, whats the point? That is just adding insult to injury!!

Maybe offer a partial refund as a sorry to the bride and leave.

I feel so sorry for that bride, what was suppose to be the most important, special day of her life, ..... is forever ruined by a jerk.

Hey, they could have made each other miserable for a few years and THEN called it quits. As unpleasant as it obviously was, I think she got lucky.

I did a wedding reception for an older couple about 10 years ago. As I'm arriving to do the show, the groom is being wheeled out on a gurney to a waiting ambulance, after collapsing during the speeches.
He sees me coming in with my music boxes and tux and pats me on the arm as I'm going in.
"Give 'em a good night, son"!

Needless to say, it was a weird atmosphere. I heard he recovered okay, but for a while I didn't know if I was playing a wedding or a wake!

The runaway bride is from Duluth, which is about 5 miles down the road from me. stardjandkaraoke is about 2 hours east of here near Augusta.

I heard a little blurb about her on the radio a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't catch the story. I don't know what ultimately happened in her tortured case, but she did cash in by selling the movie and book rights for a cool half million or so.
