Then, there’s this wedding horror story.
Because what was meant to be the best day of Nichola Tuohy’s life quickly spiralled into a series of extremely, painfully unfortunate events no decent person would wish upon any bride.
Guys, she missed her own wedding.
“I started crying. I had a bare face, no make-up on, no dress on, no flower girl dress and half an hour to get ready,” the mum-of-three told The Sun of how she completely missed her £12,000 ($AU20,900) wedding her and her fiance had been planning for 17 months, and how it eventually cost her their relationship.
Retracing her steps on that ill-fated morning back in July 2016, Tuohy put the whole mess down to a particularly disastrous makeup appointment.
Waking up on her wedding day “with a huge panic about how much [she] had to do”, Tuohy’s first stop was a makeup counter at her local department store where she’d booked in to get her wedding makeup done.
Sure thing, it took far longer than expected. And it as all for nothing, as it turned out.
“When it was done it didn’t look like me. I wanted to cry. I felt like an extra from [British reality TV show] Towie,” she said.

That alone would be hard enough – anyone who’s ever had their makeup professionally done only to feel like they’re wearing an orange mask can understand. But with just 90 minutes to go before the ceremony, Tuohy had no choice but to suck it up and make the best of the situation.
Then, she came home to find her parents, who were meant to be in charge of organising her three kids, were boycotting her wedding.
