Viral Video Allegedly Shows Drunk Groom Struggling to Stand During Wedding Vows

A wedding day is supposed to be one of the most memorable days in any married couple's life.

However, a video has gone viral online that appears to show a groom so inebriated while exchanging his vows that he's unlikely to remember much at all.

In the clip, which was uploaded to TikTok by a Russian creator known as lordofelfs76, we can see a bride wearing a long white lace dress complete with a veil.

There are white and pink balloons above the altar, where a woman wearing black with a string of pearls round her neck is adjudicating the ceremony.

The couple are flanked by two men, one of whom appears to be holding the groom upright as he sways and keeps slumping forward.

Struggling to stay conscious, at one point he almost falls onto the table before being pulled upright.

Translated from Russian, the video, which can be watched here, is captioned: "The wedding did not go according to plan. Why it is not necessary to hold a bachelor party," alongside a laughing-face emoji.

The clip, which was shared on August 8, has so far received a whopping 721,900 views and 23,900 likes.

However, owing to the fact that there are many photographers in the video and none of the people present seem very concerned as to the man's health it is likely that the footage is a prank.

Newsweek reached out to lordofelfs76 for an explanation.

Many people rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the supposedly shocking scene.

One TikTok user, Destiny McMahon, wrote: "So very confused but the fact that no one else seems concerned is a telling sign."

Pabie Kekana added: "I don't think he wanted to get married."

Sarah Pearce commented: "What a best mate that dude is!!"

Moonshine joked: "When you owe him money... and now you have to leave the love of your life and marry his daughter."

User7792212672952 asked: "I wanna see what lead up to this???"

Armnta asked: "Why did that guy hit the table so hard."

User1610277591802 exclaimed: "Omg what if he's not okay? He should be in hospital."

Another wedding video recently went viral on TikTok showing a groom's "epic entrance."

The man was carried down the aisle on a chair by four men with the song "The Next Episode" by Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Nate Dogg blasting through speakers—a tough act for the bride to follow!
