When it comes to wedding ceremony faux pas, there are many stories, some of which I have witnessed, especially regarding wedding songs.

Whether due to budget constraints, ignorance or disinterest, some couples make the mistake of paying little attention to the DJ aspect of their wedding – and this can be humorously costly.

While listening to Drake’s Fake Love recently, I was reminded of a time I crashed a wedding event just in time to witness the DJ play this song during the cutting of cake. What was more shocking about this was that nobody seemed to mind – save for the couple, of course.
