Iain Tate, aged 43, had to make four separate flights to get home – while ten others members of his stag weekend party jumped on board a direct flight back to the UK.
Iain was forced to make an exhausting 2,000 mile journey back – after best man Nick Bass, who has an IT company in Sheffield, played his prank on the groom.
The Daily Mirror reported that Iain first took an 11am flight from Malaga to Dusseldorf in Germany.

Then he flew from Dusseldorf to Paris in France before catching a flight from Paris to Dublin – although a delay at Charles de Gaulle airport meant he missed his connecting flight from Ireland back to the UK.
He had to take a plane from Dublin to Leeds Bradford Airport before finally heading home to Stockton on Tees.
Arriving back 26 hours after setting off from Spain, he was finally reunited with his bride-to-be Emma, 38.
The couple, who have six children between them from previous relationships, marry at Redworth Hall, Darlington, on November 28.
