Woman accidentally marries father-in-law in unlikely wedding mistake
| Last updated
When it comes to weddings, it's par for the course that something will inevitably go wrong.
With thousands of pounds splurged and hundreds of people in attendance, how could there not be one or two hiccups on the big day?
One woman may have claim to the biggest wedding muck up as she claims she got accidentally hitched to her father-in-law.
Yes, you read that right.
The revelation came to light on Tuesday's (18 July) episode of the Australian breakfast radio show Fitzy and Wippa with Kate Ritchie where the three hosts were fielding calls on times that callers had made a mess of the one job they were given.
One woman, named Kim, had a doozy that was both hysterical and horrifying.
Kim recalled: "So I got married and we needed two witnesses, which was my mother and my father-in-law.
"And then at our rehearsal, the mother-in-law insisted that her husband come up [as a witness too]."
So far, so good right?
Well, it was only after everything was signed that the error was spotted.
Kim revealed: "So we find the certificate and then when we looked at it and I'm actually now married to my husband and my father-in-law.
"They signed on the same line."
This led to shock from the presenters, with Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald clarifying: "So legally on a piece of paper you are married to your father-in-law?"
Kim replied: "Well on the certificate. Thank God I’m hoping they didn’t sign the legal papers that would be horrible."
Fellow presenter Michael 'Wippa' Wipfli remarked: "That is amazing. [He] Just saw the signature and went 'I’ll throw my name on that.'"
Kim, however, clarified that she wasn't legally wed to her father-in-law.
Her wedding hasn't been the only one that had a notable incident.
One groom was left red in the face after his best man brother let rip with an embarrassing toast.
Speaking at the reception, the brother recalled how the bride came into the family, saying: "One Christmas morning, I got up in my mum and dad's house, buzzing I may add.
"Walked down the stairs to open my presents only to be greeted with a slap from my mum. 'What did I tell you about bringing folk back here?'
"I say, 'What are you talking about mum, I've been in my bed the full night'.
"Obviously she's not thinking about golden child next door."
"At this point I go up the stairs, open Gary's room, and there you have it, Kirsty Currie, lying with her legs at ten to two.
"She certainly never came down the chimney in that position anyway. Merry Christmas, Kirsty."
Kirsty and her new husband Gary were left with their heads in their hands as they fought laughter.
Turns out that there are many ways to make weddings a day to remember.
