Groom plays prank on bride during ceremony, and everyone is saying the same thing

Picture this: you’ve spent years dreaming up your perfect wedding, and now the day has finally come.

Everything is going as planned until the vows when your soon-to-be husband decides to pull a prank…

Keep reading to see the prank that went viral on TikTok.

When you marry someone you promise to love them no matter what, but sometimes there needs to be an exception.

An unidentified couple’s vows went viral at the end of 2023 after Shawnda, a content creator, responded to the original TikTok.

In the clip, the groom informs those in attendance he is nervous so he wrote his vows down on a sheet of paper. He reaches into his jacket and pulls out a piece of paper that reads “HELP ME!”

The bride’s once ecstatic look turns sour as she realizes what the groom wrote. She then hits him with her bouquet of flowers. As if that wasn’t awkward enough the only person who appeared to laugh at the so-called joke was the person filming.


Was this a harmless prank or public humiliation? #weddingpranks #weddingvows #datingadvice #datingtips @Shawnda

Shawnda, a content creator and life coach, responded to the clip asking her followers, “What is it about a man who is at the altar with the woman that he has proposed to right before he promises to love, honor, and cherish her that makes him want to humiliate that woman?”

“If he’s not wrestling that woman down to the ground for the ol’ cake smashing, if he’s not disrespecting her in the vows, he’s got some kind of prank or some kind of joke, some kind of way he has to humiliate this person for making him stand up and marry him.”

“I have no respect for the kind of man that takes that day, that opportunity to get themself a cheap laugh, because that crowd was dry.”

The majority of TikTokers were in agreement.

“‘it was a joke’ ur wedding vows r not the time 4 jokes.. esp ones so mean.”

“The officiant was embarrassed for her.”

“My husband is a huge jokester and even he was serious on our wedding day. This is so sad.”

“Her face tells everyone that it wasn’t a joke.”

“i feel likw the camerawoman was in on it. that laugh sounds too forced.”

There has been some speculation about whether the video is authentic, but even if it was staged, a wedding ceremony is NOT the time to be making jokes.
