Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
When it comes to their wedding day, some couples are taking it to the extreme. Whether the motive is wowing guests, making friends jealous or even making headlines, pulling off adventurous stunts on their wedding day is gaining the interest of brides and grooms-to-be. While these acts, from taking off in a hot air balloon to jumping out of a plane, may seem like a way to make their wedding day unforgettable, they can also land couples anywhere from embarrassed to in the hospital.
One newlywed couple who wanted to make a grand entrance into their reception via zip line knows just how humiliating a stunt-gone-wrong can be. What might have seemed like a good idea during wedding planning, turned into a YouTube video sensation for all the wrong reasons. The couple attempted to zip line into their outdoor reception only to have the groom crash into the bride, sending him tumbling to the ground.

While no one was seriously hurt, an incident like this can be devastating to the bride or groom’s ego.
“When attempting to pull off something out of the ordinary at your wedding, you have to make sure you’re up for any possible consequences,” says Brett Reynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. “You have to take the good with the bad, and just hope that the stunt goes off without a hitch. But if something does go wrong, as long as no one is hurt, just remember to laugh it off, and enjoy the rest of your special day knowing that you gave it your best shot. The moment will be memorable whether all goes as planned or not.”
Regardless of how much planning goes into incorporating a wild stunt into their wedding day, acts such as skydiving are unpredictable. Because of this unpredictable nature, brides and grooms with laid-back, go-with-the-flow personalities seem more likely to attempt these stunts. As for couples who aren't up for the possibility of becoming YouTube’s next “wedding day fail,” it might be a good idea to just save their wild sides for the honeymoon.
