Hey guys, I'm the OP. To clear a few things up, he didn't exactly ruin the wedding. He and I have always been able to joke back and forth, and quoting shows in fitting situations is almost like a contest to us, to see who can quote a show or movie that matches the situation the fastest and the best. Before the wedding, I was winning at this game, and he saw our wedding as the PERFECT opportunity to take the lead. This wouldn't have been so bad if I wasn't visibly shaking and feeling like I was about the puke throughout the whole ceremony. Don't get me wrong, I love him with all my heart and knew it was the right decision to marry him, but I was still a bundle of nerves. So when he said "Rachel," I immediately burst into tears, because my immediate thought was he was either cheating on me or in love with someone else (I knew the Friends quote, but when you're that invested in what's happening around you, your first thought isn't exactly going to be Ross Geller). So I guess I technically ruined the wedding a little more than him with my horrible sobbing that wouldn't stop even after I had forgiven him... After I calmed down, we went through with the rest of the ceremony. No slaps across the face, no leaving at the altar. We've been together since 8th grade, so I wasn't about to leave him after over 12 years of nothing but love and care.

Yes, ruined! Especially having to re-watch it on video for years on end. Laugh, have fun, make the moment memorable but do not purposely mess up your marriage "vows" that many should take seriously. You're declaring your commitment in front of family, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and to God (to those that believe). The fiancé made a joke out of their marriage before it even began. There's a time and a place for everything.
No, I think it is hilarious but it didn't happen to me. I can understand why OP is upset as a wedding is a special day and OP might have been embarassed and shocked and angry when that happens. You plan everything and you probably have lots of hormones and emotions and if he said the wrong name you would be very upset. Once he'd said it was a joke you might still be too shocked to take it in.
Why? I am sure that we was very nervous, which, if your not a robot, you know makes you do really stupid things. He made a simple mistake, and its all cleared up,. What you just said is the same as saying that someone should slap you every time you get nervous around you crush. Think before you speak, child.
It's not just her wedding, it's their wedding. If she doesn't know him enough to know that he likes to crack jokes then obviously she doesn't know him very well. She shouldn't have taken it so seriously it will make her wedding stand out, since many are pretty boring anyway.
I think you are overeacting a tiny bit. How did that ruin your wedding? He just gave it a little spice.
I'm sure different couples tolerate different levels of "fun" in the wedding ceremony, but these were the VOWS. You know, the part where you promise to love the other person for the rest of your life? Basically the entire reason the wedding exists. And he said the wrong name. Yeah, he ruined it.
