How mortifying. You would think that a married couple would be on their best behaviour on their wedding day. But this groom clearly went a bit overboard and his mother-in-law was left to pick up the pieces.

A video taken at a wedding, believed to be in Scotland, features a very intoxicated groom, being hand-fed by his new mum-in-law.

A wedding guest captured the amusing moments and was shared by UNILAD, before being flung around the internet.

In the ornately decorated reception room, the video showed the groom’s new mother-in-law picking up food from a plate and popping it into the grooms’ mouth, perhaps in an effort to sober him up.

The noticeably drunken man, dressed in his wedding suit, seemed unable to lift his own arms and dozily chewed on the food offered by his MIL.

The MIL is clearly annoyed by the inappropriate actions of her daughter’s new hubby and she looks furiously into the camera while offering a sarcastic thumbs-up.

The groom looked like he was barely keeping his eye open as he turned towards the camera showing food smudged all over his beard. What a grub!

The new wife doesn’t appear in the video at all so one wonders whether her inebriated new hubby is in the dogbox with her, or perhaps she’s getting just as drunk on the opposite side of the room?


Mixed Bag Of Comments

The funny video has attracted thousands of comments.

One person wrote: “Best mother in-law of the year.” Although another quipped in reply: “That title has never and will never exist”.

Another commented: “All I will say is that he has an amazing mother in law!! The fact that she is feeding him is so sweet. If that was my mum she would have sorted him out (no feeding involved)”

He Ruined Their Special Day

However, not all the commenters were amused some saying that he’d probably “ruined” the day with his behaviour.

“Isn’t she a lucky bride, not. It’s meant to be the happiest day and night of your life.
Nice wedding day and night she had. I would be gone in the morning when he sobered up and divorce papers would be served to him shortly after. Why some women accept this is beyond me.”

“Getting into that state on your wedding day is recipe for disaster for the marriage… disrespectful”

Others slammed the drunken behaviour as “sad”, “stupid”, “awful” and “insulting”.

It Happened To Me Too…

For some, this video was all too familiar and some viewers have shared stories of their own calamitous wedding stories.

“My husband got so drunk he barfed all over the honeymoon suite, slipped and cracked the tiles in the shower, temporarily lost his wedding ring and passed out before we consummated the marriage..I found it bloody hilarious tbh. made up for it the next day with candles, rose petals and dinner, 9 months later we had a baby so we say it was meant to be.”

And another revealed: “I got this close at the end of the night at my wedding lol. To quote Deadpool. “Stupid, worth it” wife had a great time I’m told I had a great time still married lol”

Bride Quits Job For Full-Time Wedding Planning

  • What a shame! I would be so disappointed if that happened on my wedding day! I would not be too impressed at all.


  • My ex-husband locked me out of the bridal suite after passing out drunk on our wedding night.

    Note, I said EX-HUSBAND.


  • It’s definitely going to be a wedding to be remembered but for all the wrong reasons. Unless he was on some medication which didn’t interact well with alcohol I’d say he’s in big trouble. I got a little tipsy at our wedding but nothing like this. I had no intentions of drinking any alcohol so I stuck to the punch that was meant to be for kids. Turns out someone had spiked it with alcohol so there were a couple of young children a bit worse for wear as well


  • It so awful to me. I don’t think I’ve embarrassed myself that much. Definitely feel sorry for the bride.


  • I’m sure he didn’t mean to get so blotto. Was probably just nervous and overestimated how much he should drink to relax a little… I would love to know what the wife thinks though.


  • How embarrassing! Not a great look for the wedding and I feel so sorry for the bride who would have just wanted the day to go smoothly


  • OMG! Not okay. Such poor form. Not a great start to their marriage.


  • We had an alcohol free wedding. Don’t regret the decision at all. The last thing you need is people having too much and spoiling it.


  • That is mortifying, My thoughts are with the poor bride.


  • I told my now husband that he and his groomsmen could get as drunk as they wanted as long as they were stone cold sober for the ceremony. They agreed and luckily no one got too drunk at the reception and the whole day went well. I would be mortified if this happened at my wedding.


  • Might be the shortest wedding in history, separated at the reception, so embarrassing and not a great memory of the day


  • Oh this is awful. I woulda have killed my husband if he did that!


  • How embarrassing for the bride, and of course the wedding night would have been a failure. Isn’t it the best mans job to look after the groom and make sure he does not drink too much?


  • A bit of a shame to effectively miss your own wedding.


  • Oh wow, I am sure that he regrets being that drunk now. But on the plus side, we got to see how the MIL just came to the rescue and looked after him. Very sweet!
