Last night on the news they showed a clip from a wedding fail. While it was humorous that the dock the wedding party was standing on suddenly gave out, sending everybody plunging into the lake, that’s not what cracked me up most.
After they aired the video, one of the anchor’s commented that she felt bad the bride and groom ended up being among the only ones to fall in up to their necks. (Some of the people on the ends lucked out and only got their legs wet.)
That’s not what stood out most to me about this wedding fail video. Watch and see if you spot it.
What did you notice about the groom? What did you notice about one of the bridesmaids? Anything?
Did you notice the groom scrammed and didn’t help his bride? (At first. Eventually he waded back over to her.)
But it was one of the bridesmaids who immediately leaped into action to help the bride, who appears might’ve been popping out of her top after the tumble. The bridesmaid shielded the bride until she could pull herself back together.
I’m wondering if that bridesmaid is a sister or best friend. All I know is that’s the kind of person you want in your life, and that bride is lucky to have her. When the docks of life give out on you, you want someone like that who doesn’t hesitate to jump to your assistance to help you out of the situation.
As for the husband…boy, do I feel for the bride. If she hadn’t seen this side of him before, guess what? She just learned something new about the man she married.
I say that because her and I share something in common: husbands with Costanza Syndrome. Her hub’s more unfortunate than mine, though. Wayne’s healthy sense of him first self-preservation has never been documented on video. Especially not on a viral wedding fail video.
