Wedding Stories

Wrong Name
When I got married last year the officiant called Mr. Sweede by the wrong name. His actual legal name is an American nickname, but he was born in another country and his parents liked the nickname better than the traditional name, so they picked the nickname.

On the legal paperwork for our marriage it says his actual name (nickname) and I only used his actual name in all correspondence with the officiant.

But the officiant must have assumed that Mr. Sweede was actually called the traditional name. So he used it during the entire ceremony. Mr. Sweede was a little put off and some people in the audience giggled the first time the officiant said the wrong name (cause they all knew better). But when it was time to say the vows and Mr. Sweede had to repeat after the officiant, he actually corrected the officiant in the middle of our ceremony. People were laughing out loud as we said our vows.

Since that night people who were at the wedding have been calling Mr. Sweede by wrong name on purpose, cause they think it is funny.

Too bad there was no videographer.
