True Life Wedding Tragedies
We’d guess about 99.99 per cent of weddings go off with only one hitch, as it were. But every now and then wedding-day tragedies do happen, some unavoidable, others down to poor judgement or even downright evil.

You’d rather not invite them, but...
Putting the guest list together is, as we’ve said before here, the toughest bit of planning a wedding.
