Although these grooms personally vowed to keep the truth from their bride till death do them part, they revealed it all to us.....
I do… Barely!
"I was so nervous on my wedding day that I almost didn't leave the house. If my best man hadn't given me shots of vodka (apparently you can’t smell it) and physically dragged me out, I probably wouldn't have made it to the alter. But as soon as I saw my wife coming down the aisle, all the nerves went away. It was the best decision of my life!"
Lost in transit
“The one job i was given towards the wedding planning was to post the invitations. And i forgot! Until three weeks after i told my wife to be that i had sent them when her friend told her she hadn't received hers yet. I was convinced that if i admitted that they were still sitting in my drawer at work she might of actually called off the wedding. So i faked an angry phonecall to the royal mail and told her that they were experiencing delays and the invitations should arrive in the next few days, if not they’d cover the costs. I sent them the very next day with second class stamps rather than next day otherwise i would have blown my cover (smart thinking huh!). I still got in trouble though for using 2nd class stamps. Apparently that made the whole wedding look ‘cheap’. You can’t win.”
Tell it how it is
“The most exciting part of the wedding planning was the stag do.”
“I cannot stand her best friend. All she does is talk about herself and how wonderful she is, how successful she is and her amazing travels to the supermarket (slight exaggeration here, but thats how much this girl loves herself). When my wife and i first started seeing each other i actually thought “this could be a deal breaker”. how the hell she could be friends with someone like that, is my girl really like her friend deep down? Luckily i stuck it out and my wife turned out to be nothing like her friend. But to this day i still haven't plucked up the courage to tell her i hate her friend. I just make sure i’m conveniently busy whenever she comes by.”
“My wife was packing her suitcase for her hen do, a weekend away in Ibiza. I was in the room with her while she was packing and she showed me the dress that she was going to wear for her one big night out. It was a short tight fitted white dress and she looked smoking hot in it. Just before she was about to leave for the airport i snuck into her suitcase and took out the dress. I didn't want any other guys perving over my wife! She called me while she was away asking about the dress and i played dumb, rattled a few hangers in the wardrobe to make it look like i was searching for it for her and told her “it’s here babe, you didn't pack it”.”
“On the night before my wedding I had my best man stay with me and another mate of mine that I hadn't seen for awhile which when ever we get together it turns into a messy night. So we decided to go for a "few beers" at my local pub down the road but 2 beers turned into a couple shots then a few jäger bombs later it turned into a big night out I didn't get home until 4am. Lucky enough I was so nervous that I didn't get a hang over and a few shots of sambuca with my best man before my wife walked down the aisle I was ready to go.”
“I didn't like how my wife looked when she came back from her hair and makeup trial. The makeup was caked on, her eyebrows looked like caterpillars and her hair was up and curly with bits hanging down. It just didn't look like her. I love how she looks with hardly any makeup on and her hair down. Luckily her best friend is my little sister so i confessed to her and she managed to convince my wife to go more natural. In the end my wife looked absolutely stunning walking down the aisle, i’m so glad my sis helped me out. She insists that she didn't let slip my comments but i guess i’ll never know.”
“I looked at the dress before the wedding day, it was hanging in our spare room. It looked completely different on to be fair. It looked pretty on the hanger but it looked incredible on her.”
"My wife loves Beyonce so I’d organised with my groomsmen for them to come on the dance floor during our first dance, drag my wife to the side and do a surprise dance routine with me to put a ring on it. We’d been practicing for a month. But then my wife saw a video of a groom doing the exact same thing on Facebook and said “what a tw*t. I’d kill you if you did that to me, the first dance should be all about us”. I bottled it! And i never told her what i’d been planning."
"My other half went on a diet* before the wedding and insisted i go on it too so we’d both look great in the photos. She’d give me pack lunch and make me dinner but all she’d eat was soup and salad so thats all i got to eat. I didn't tell her i went to the sandwich van for breakfast and lunch every day. I’d sometimes stop for something to eat on the way home too. About two weeks into the diet i caught her tucking into a mars bar and she admitted she’d been secret eating but i never admitted i was doing the same."
