But that's not necessarily such a bad thing!
Wedding mishaps are par for the course on a day brimming with excitement and mixed in with rather unfamiliar formality (for most) but often it's the things that go wrong that become the highlights of the day. Even if you only see it a few days (or months) after.
So while the pre-wedding drama from the British royal wedding captured the world's attention, US 'Late Show' talk show host Jimmy Fallon decided to put Meghan's family woes into perspective by asking his viewers about the worst thing they've ever experienced at a wedding.
And of course he received some rather hilarious responses.
Here's some of the funniest #weddingfails people came back with.
