Over 2 million people have watched the video of Chelsea, who can be seen smiling throughout the ordeal. You can watch the video here.

According to the law firm Buckingham, LaGrandeur and Williams, slipping and falling are the most common causes of accidents at a wedding. The firm's website documents various cases where guests have slipped on spilled food and drinks, a poorly installed dance floor or even on the bridal bouquet's rose petals.

The law firm explained that, in most cases, the bride and groom are not liable for the injuries sustained as it is most often the venue's fault... Or as in one of the cases mentioned above, the dance floor installer.

Website Top Wedding Sites urges couples to prioritize wedding insurance, especially if the venue is your own home. The website also recommends asking about a venue's insurance policy. While these policies vary, they generally offer protection against the financial consequences of claims of property damage and bodily injury to third parties that arise from incidents at a wedding.

The moment TikTokers had been waiting for arrived on September 13, Chelsea from Vancouver, Canada, revealed her wedding was running smoothly until approximately 9:45 p.m.

She was prompted by guests to do the "horah"—a Jewish celebratory dance that involves the bride and groom on lifted chairs and everyone dancing around them.

Chelsea gives a clue as to what has happened by stating it was a "little slippery" before ending the video. You can watch it here.

Chelsea has been comforted by her followers and it turns out she isn't the only bride to suffer a broken foot.

The top comment, which has received over 1,250 likes, read: "Wishing you a speedy recovery! I broke my ankle six weeks ago… the day before my wedding!"

Other users have demanded "story time" and after

Other comments from curious TikTokers wanted to know if she had returned to the party.

The original poster informed others there was just an hour left and joked the incident was "good timing."

It seems a lot of people could relate to the video as they could be seen tagging friends and saying: "This would happen to me."

While most TikTokers could see the funny side, one user suggested the incident is a negative sign for the marriage, it said: "Guess I am a bit superstitious, but this can't be a good omen."

Newsweek reached out to @cocktailsanddogtails and was not able to verify the details of the case.
