Welcome to Pop The Question, a weekly space to dissect every aspect of wedding madness. Each Tuesday, we'll ask a question (sometimes there might even be a poll!), you'll share answers and stories, and then we'll bring you the best of the bunch on Thursdays. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll fly into a total rage over something that doesn't actually matter … it will be just like your wedding day.
You know how it goes: Sometimes you pop the question, and sometimes the question pops you. This week, a question was popped at me (occupational hazard) by a bride-to-be who discovered a smudge on her white satin wedding shoes and wanted to know how to get them clean. From that question springs this week's group discussion topic: Tell us about your wedding wardrobe malfunctions!
Did someone spill red wine down your white dress? Did your stress-related weight loss lead to a nip slip? Did Uncle Ron step on your dress during the Chicken Dance and tear the hem?
But why limit the fun to brides? Did your mother-in-law process with her dress tucked up into her pantyhose? Did cousin Albert vomit down his shirtfront at the reception? Which bridesmaid forgot a bra?
I can even join in the fun this week, because my wedding dress broke while I was wearing it. It was actually not a big deal at all, one of the straps popped during our reception—so, after the photos were taken #priorities—a girlfriend pinned it back in place and poured me more limoncello.
Your turn! Tell us everything and we'll return to this space on Thursday to cringe our way through the best of the worst.
