The Wedding Party: Watch the Hilarious Family Drama as it Unfolds On Stage

We’ve all felt the drama that takes place when you bring together two families for a boisterous event, and I doubt any of us have attended a wedding where hilarity, and perhaps a little bit of chaos, hasn’t unfolded on the dance floor (especially when an open bar has loosened inhibitions). So it goes without saying that we’re excited to see how this takes shape on the stage with the Crow’s Theatre’s first show of 2017: The Wedding Party.

From the award-winning creators of the beloved play I, Claudia, Kristen Thomson and director Chris Abraham, The Wedding Party is a new comedy about two families, a wedding, mistaken identities, and a whole lotta love. The Wedding Party invites audiences to take a seat ringside on the big day, while an astonishing cast of the country’s leading actors hit the dance floor, drink too much, and try to get along.

In anticipation, we’ve rounded up ten of our all-time favourite wedding videos from YouTube. From grooms busting a move a little too hard, to groomsmen losing their pants, funny vow mix-ups, and unexpected physical calamities with dresses, start the hilarity now, and then round up your best girls (or your fiancé) for a night of laughter and heart-warming romance.

If delivering a speech to a room is daunting, then pretend you’re Vanilla Ice and rap it:

There is no one cooler on earth than this mom:

We’re as impressed by the surprise Bieber dance as we are by the fact that ALL the dudes in background have the same hair:

Oh no. Oh no, no, no, no, noooooo!

As if bringing families together wasn’t awkward enough, I guess the wedding party mannequin challenge is a thing now:

We will forever be puzzled how this happened. DUDE, wear a belt!

When the groom cannot contain his excitement and does a back flip that accidentally knocks his new wife out. WHOOPS.

Waffle wedded husband. U guys r cute:

When the DJ does an 8-ball before showing up to your wedding and ruins EVERYTHING. We’d be SO FURIOUS.

Yep, these guys nailed it:
