Ahead of your big day many brides and grooms feel nervous – whether it’s cold feet, fear that your family won’t get along or worries about things not going to plan.

It’s easy to say that everything will turn out fine, but as some brides know things can go badly wrong.

The Wedding Travel Company has rounded up some of the worst wedding disasters they’ve come across – and some of them will turn your stomach if you’re planning your big day.

Bride Gemma Nuttall, 27, and her husband Lewis flew out to Portugal for a sunny destination wedding in June of 2018, reports the Mirror.

But, disaster struck as Gemma’s maid of honour, Harriet, missed her flight out of Manchester due to a midwife mix up.

At 33-weeks pregnant Harriet had to get a fit-to-fly note from her midwife before she could board the plane and she managed to do this in good time, but the healthcare worker had made a mistake.

Gemma said: "Instead of it being dated with the day of the flight like it was meant to, it was dated the day of the visit – meaning it was one week old".

Harriet didn’t realise until she was refused entry onto the plane ahead of the big day.

And, as it was a Sunday, she couldn’t even contact her midwife until the next day. Harriet did make it in time for the wedding, but by the skin of her teeth as she turned up an hour before they had to be at the venue.

Meanwhile, newlywed Chloe Bailey was gobsmacked when her expensive three-tiered wedding cake ended all over the floor of the reception venue.

The bride had designed the green and nude macaron-bedecked cake herself and it cost a princely £450.

The nightmare unfolded as Chloe, 30, and husband, Aaron, cut into the glorious masterpiece only for the table to topple over.

Guests stated in horror as "one of the table legs folded, launching it onto the floor – in what felt like slow motion".

Chloe, from Hampshire, said: “All of our guests froze and waited to see our reactions, mostly mine, and luckily we found it funny. My bridesmaids rushed to the dance floor to pick up the macaroons and one of the groomsmen picked up the cake.

"We managed to reassemble the three tiers and everyone still enjoyed the cake – it was delicious."

Apparently, the photographer was "torn between capturing the moment by taking pictures, and helping us" but ended up catching some hilarious snaps.

Chloe remembered: "We actually paid an extra £100 to have the cake safely transported to the venue, how ironic!"
