A new survey from Debenhams reveals the worst things that can happen at a wedding...

From outfit malfunctions to the excessive intake of alcohol, a wedding never goes as smoothly as the bride hopes.

A new survey conducted by high street retailer Debenhams concluded that 37% of guests disapproved of the taste in wedding speeches given by best men – with content about ex-girlfriends and late nights out resulting in the most raised eyebrows. However, the increasingly crummy taste shown in speeches did not change 26% of guest's opinion of those who left the reception before these finished – ignorant and unacceptable.

THE COST OF BEING A 2015 WEDDING GUEST REVEALED

In terms of wardrobe, a large abundance of guests became picky with regards to clothing. Eleven per cent of guests gave a bad impression to those dressed much alike the bridesmaids. In addition, a further 9% acknowledged the wearing of sunglasses in the church as highly rude, whilst 14% thought it selfish to wear a hat too wide – they were blocking the view!

Technology has taken over the world - and that includes weddings! Forgetting to turn off one's phone was considered a big no-no by those surveyed. Witnessed by 13% of respondents, the action ruins the loving atmosphere of a wedding. Furthermore, the tardy arrival, as well as response, of some guests seemed the centre of annoyance for 10% of respondents.

Be it dressing in black or white, mistaking a morning suit for a black tie and dinner jacket or simply taking flash photography, there is plenty of room for etiquette errors to occurm making a sense of humour key. Half of respondents found it amusing to watch the actions of others at a wedding; it's just one of those things!
