Fighting With Mom and Dad
Nothing is more uncomfortable than watching bratty children scream at their parents, especially at a wedding. It's demeaning, demoralizing and embarrassing for everyone involved, from the bride and groom to the parents and their unpleasant children (even if the ill-behaved kids don't realize it yet). But, like with everything else on this list, we can't blame the children entirely.
Sure, all kids complain and pick fights with their parents, but this shouldn't go down at a wedding. We're not trying to be preachy here, but it's the parents' job to take care of their kids. If the children are uncontrollable (hey, it happens), they need to be taken to an area where they won't disturb anyone else, especially the bride and groom. At weddings, relatives and friends gather to support two people making a lifelong commitment to each other. No one comes to witness the all-too-audible antics of spoiled children.
