  • Preacher interrupted me at a wedding

    I was playing a beach wedding on Saturday. The weather was perfect. The bride and the guests were nice looking, and everything seemed to be great.



    I usually strum pop/country songs and sing, but today the bride wanted me to play an instrumental version of the

      While many preachers are very nice people, some are definitely jerks!

        Though I don't do weddings I would have had a couple of words with him afterwards. Just because he is a man of the cloth doesn't mean he's not an asshat.

          You really should have given that preacher-creature a good dressing-down. What a self-serving ego-centric jerk he was, Jeeesh.

            I think that it's really the bride/grooms job to tell the preacher to get out the car, not yours. as long as they did not blame you for him being a jerk I think you are good, just move on I say.

                  The minister acted like a jerk (a tacky one, too). You behaved appropriately by not making a scene. Your responsibilty is to the client (the wedding couple) and the sucess of the event. You did your part. Good job on holding your tongue under difficult circumstances. Mark C.

                      On behalf of preachers everywhere I sincerely apologize for that obnoxious turd.

                        Oh yea..I would have had words with him DIRECTLY after the ceremony. I would have said, I would NEVER interrupt you mid-ceremony and what you did was very very rude and uncouth. Try to give him a clue so he doesn't interrupt the wrong guy on the wrong day sometime.
