Two days before the best day of my life (my wedding) we had our rehearsal at the catholic church we were scheduled to get married in. The rehearsal of a wedding is supposed to be a fun, laid back, relaxing way to hash out any problems that could arise during the ceremony. That is not how it went down.
The priest who married us refused to grant one of our requests during the ceremony. The request wasn’t to play rap music, to come dancing down the aisle, or to perform a satanic ritual on the altar. We asked if he could say, “I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride.” He said that he didn’t feel, “comfortable,” saying that.
So later on that night, at the rehearsal dinner we were eating together and I could tell that my bride was pretty sad. She had been working nonstop on this wedding, trying to iron out every detail, and here two days before the wedding, this clown will not say something that she has waited her entire life to hear. Nobody wants an unhappy bride. So my brother (the best man) and her twin sister (maid of honor) came up with a genius plan.
I would also like to mention that this was not the only thing that bothered us about the priest. He rushed us through the rehearsal, he was rude and sarcastic to our family members, he was very uncooperative with our photography and videographer people, and this was just the final straw.
So the plan was all set. The plan was going to make the bride happy, make the audience happy, make the wedding memorable, and make the priest mad. It was perfect. So as the ceremony was ending, the priest got to the part where he should be saying those words and that is when my brother yells, “I now pronounce you husband and wife!” This was followed by my now sister in-law saying, “You may now kiss the bride!” This if course was followed by the best kiss I had ever had and cheers from the crowd.
After the ceremony, he called them into his back room and chewed them out for disrespecting God’s house like that. My brother said, “May I say something,” looking to apologize and try to explain to him why he did what he did. The priest said, “No.”
Even though he RSVPd that he was coming to the reception, he did not show up that night.
