Some friends doing an X-men themed wedding thought it would be a good idea to have a wolverine bring the ring.  As in an actual wolverine.  You know how they say hindsight is 20/20?

Well, you can't always rely on having a bag of rice/confetti to hand.

I usually take a bag of dead chicks with me when I attend a wedding - just in case this sort of thing happens.

I went to a Renaissance-themed wedding once where a falconer was supposed to call a trained hawk, who would carry the ring.

Instead of going to the falconer, the hawk went right over his head and sat in a tree.  They had to get out some dead chicks to coax it down so the minister could finally get to the exchanging-rings part of the wedding.

At least the rings stayed firmly tied on while the hawk was flying...

Hehehe. That did occur to me, but the "Princess Bride" reference was too good to resist.

Between this and the thread title, I thought this would be about some sort of plane crash involving one of the broken-off wings ruining some poor bastard's wedding.

Tell me I wasn't the only one.

In this best man's case, no.

As Elizabeth Gray and Lewis Aubrey were in the final stages of becoming husband and wife at a church outside London, the ceremony was interrupted by a loud ping.
 
"Suddenly you just hear this noise that sounded like metal dropping and with that the vicar said to the best man … 'Was that the ring?' and he went, 'Yeah,'" Gray told ABC News. "Then all eyes turned to the floor."
