There comes a day when you find the love of your life and commit to love them until death do you part: your wedding day. Stereotypically, girls dream of this special day; from what to wear, to the decorations, the cake, the photography, and everything else.
Everything has to be perfect! Right? Well…unfortunately, it doesn’t always go as planned. Whether it was intended or not, these wedding pictures reveal some pretty unexpected turns!
Even celebrities aren’t immune from slip-ups on their big day. When British TV personality Katie Price married her beau in the Bahamas in 2013, she got a little more exposure than she bargained for when her dress slipped…Whoops!
OMG, this guy is a total oaf. He’s clearly just given his beautiful daughter away, and gotten tangled in her train as he returns to his seat.
The look on her face says it all: surprise, anger, and probably a lot of pain at having her head jerked back like that.
Bicycle Built For Nude
This couple accidentally scheduled their wedding for the same exact day and at the same location as the annual Philly Naked Bike Ride. Did the bride freak out or what?
Nope, they totally took things in stride and even incorporated some nude strangers into their wedding pics! You know their marriage will last, with that kind of open-minded flexibility and lightheartedness.
OK, ladies, it’s time to start wearing the appropriate underpinnings on your big day. Especially if you’re going strapless and plan to move around at all. Just an hour-long consultation at good old Victoria’s Secret or any other lingerie shop could have saved this bride a whole lot of embarrassment.
Just a comment about the trend of brides forcing their bridesmaids to flash their bare bums and have the whole thing photographed for all the world to see: WHY? Especially when some of them don’t look all that comfortable with it… I wish people would give a “hard pass” to this new wedding tradition.
Way Too Much To Drink
This couple is owning the dance floor! At least, the booze they’ve consumed is telling them that. Folks, there are entire websites dedicated to stories of people humiliating themselves at weddings when they drink too much. Please, heed this advice: pace yourselves and drink lots of water. And EAT!
Save Me A Dance
There are a few things to note in this photo. For one, it’s still light outside and these dancing partners are more than a few drinks deep. Being on the dance floor, they know they’re being watched, but clearly, that doesn’t change their actions. Nope, all good judgment is out the window at this point. And one last note, this guy just could not wait any longer to cop a feel. Let’s just hope grandma isn’t seated at a front row table.
No Clothes, No Problem
Let’s assume that the nudity in this lovely Hawaiian wedding was planned. Otherwise, the airline that lost their clothes would be in biiiiiiig trouble with this bride.
Sorry, but I find it curious that the groom wears an earring and a watch but totally skips underwear, pants, or a shirt.
Curiosity Killed The Cat
This bride is blissfully unaware that there’s a strange child ogling her exposed crotch. She’s in for a real surprise when her photographer posts the wedding album online for the world to see.
The child’s parents are probably thrilled with the birds and bees education Junior got at this wedding.
Wedding Dresses Should Fit Perfectly
Awwww, this would have been such a sweet and wholesome candid picture of the bride arriving to her big day, if only she wasn’t exposed by a too-large dress… Look closely. No bra? Luckily, Photoshop can quickly and easily take care of that unintentionally-exposed area.
So Many Questions
There’s really no telling what happened here, but suffice it to say that there was a very unhappy bride crying somewhere when this photo was taken. And we’re assuming she was completely nude, as this appears to be a dress in its entirety, not just a veil or removable train…
This Tennessee couple opted to involve their month-old baby daughter in their ceremony, so they tied her within the dress’s trail and dragged her down the aisle. Not surprisingly, they received a ton of criticism online, but luckily there are no reports of the baby being injured.
That would have been a disturbing site for the guests!
My guess is that these bridesmaids protested their hideous dresses by attending the wedding naked…
Not really! Their strapless gowns simply give the appearance of nudity. We can only hope that they are wearing appropriate undergarments for the bouquet toss, because we’ve seen what happens to those strapless dresses when arms are raised!
Revealing Wedding Dress
Katie Price’s life seems to revolve around drama. Price won the fifteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother and has starred and appeared in other reality shows. The Brit has been married three times, and for her third wedding, this time to Kieran Hayler, she decided to go with a rather small dress to show off her figure. Her marriage has had its fair share of trouble, with Hayler being unfaithful to Price many, many times. We hope it all works out for this bride.
Chasing The Butterflies Away
This bride clearly went a little overboard with the tension-taming booze at her wedding. She’ll, unfortunately, start her honeymoon with a pretty bad hangover, from the looks of it. She could probably turn this booze cruise around right now, if she just put down the bottle, chugged a ton of water, took some B-12 and ate some of her reception food.
This looks like a perfectly normal wedding picture, until you spot the photo bomber. Is it possible that this was a staged setup?
Actually, it turns out that “Waldo” photobombs a lot of couples on their wedding days. I guess the guy is bored now that he’s not such a pop-culture craze anymore.
The photographer obviously doesn’t know what he’s doing. I hope that shot came out well, since he ruined the view for everyone else. Here’s a bet that all the people who paid big bucks to travel from far-reaching destinations just to see this wedding might not be too happy.
Tiki Torch Wedding
Mallard duck decoys, tons of tikis, and a bunch of guys in cut-off jorts. What more could you want out of a wedding?
I can think of a few things: a kiddie pool filled with Jell-O, a sand sculpting contest, a couple of dogs breeding, and a free methadone clinic come to mind.
Wedding Cake of the Year
I have many words to describe this cake, but none of them align with the smiles on this couple’s face. I suppose all that matters is that they seem to like it.
What the heck IS that thing supposed to be, anyway??? Maybe we don’t want to know.
He’s trying to act like this is an accident. But you don’t just “accidentally” toss a cup of brown liquid onto a newlywed couple as they enter their reception. What is it anyway, hot coffee? Soda? What a jerk! This lady had every right to go full bridezilla at him.
OH, HELL NO!
He ain’t slick, that’s for sure.
When a couple splits up DURING the wedding, is that considered a divorce or an annulment? I like the way the other dude is looking back at the person with the camera. He’s clearly in on the whole incestuous thing, dontcha think?
More Butt Grabbing
These bridesmaids thought they could slip into the background to get the job done, but there is always someone watching. And everyone has a phone camera these days. Talk about embarrassing! Wonder what kind of treasure these ladies located up there, other than their standard-issue bridesmaids thongs.
Who wears clothes to weddings anyway? If you’re this couple, no one. It’s that free-wheelin’ San Francisco vibe… not for everyone but they sure look happy about it.
Protip: before you try this outlandish look as a wedding guest, check your local laws. You wouldn’t want to be locked up in the pokey while everyone else is enjoying the couple’s reception, would you?
No Need for Decorations with Passersby Like This
There’s really no control over people in the background when you get married in a public location. Especially one where people tend not to wear many clothes…
… hey, she IS wearing a big black band across her buxom chest, isn’t she?
Beach Wedding #2
How rare – a wedding portrait featuring a puckered starfish! I believe that’s good luck for the married couple.
Other symbols of good luck at a wedding: rain, spiders, the color white, sugar cubes, henna, silver coins, pine trees, sapphires… the list goes on and on.
I think the dad’s face says it all. I bet he wishes he had “given her away” back when she was a baby. And what’s up with the arm bands? Are those iPod holsters? Or do they hold packets of Nair? I need so much more information about this bizarre wedding.
You know, that tradition where the reverend photobombs your pictures. We’ve seen this a million times.
Hey, I guess this beats the tradition of grooms having to wave a bloody sheet out the window after he and his bride have consummated their marriage, to prove her innocence. But only slightly.
When the Spanx Get to You
Restricting blood flow can cause people to pass out cold. Looks like this bridesmaid found that out the hard (and embarrassing) way.
JK. You know she’s hungover, right? Nothing spells “I am going to pass out cold at my BFF’s wedding” the way a hangover does.
Dreams Do Come True!
When you literally marry your knight in shining armor, you know you’re setting yourself up for a hugely disappointing “real life” marriage. Sorry to be a downer…
I’m sure the groom is a real gentleman and treats his lady like a princess, but this is just tacky and immature.
You just gotta love the beach photos. There’s so much that could go wrong, and so much of it involves unwanted nudity. Which is absolutely perfect for wedding photos! And think of the sand – all the fun places that painful sand can end up when you’re hot and sweaty.
Karate Kick to the Face
Hopefully she got a few good shots before her bloody nose ruined the whole thing.
Also, it looks like he peed his pants a little. As I suppose any gentleman would do upon realizing that he just kicked a lady right in the middle of her face.
Nothing like having a totally swagged out wedding, am I right?
To add a HUGE dose of class, they could have had the airbrush artist at the reception to personalize guests’ clothes. Or a caricature cartoonist, or a tie-dye booth, or any other number of Pinterest type crafts.
The Light At The End Of The Tunnel
It looks like he has found his gleaming prize. Go to the light, man.
Hey, maybe he found a Pokémon in there! You know that will happen that any day, right? A groom will find a Pokémon underneath his betrothed’s lovely gown.
Is he nervous, or overexcited, or does she weigh like 700 pounds somehow? I’m always happy to see a couple laugh off those “imperfect” wedding moments – shows promise for a long marriage, if you ask me. Even the photographer embraced this crazy shot and featured it on their professional portfolio.
Peek-A-Boo, I See You
Hey honey, where’d that draft come from? Do you feel it too? No? Probably just my imagination, then.
This is the bride’s version of a “Marilyn moment,” holy matrimony-style. The lovely Ms. Monroe ended up with three marriages under her belt, so she must have done something right.
This is what can happen when cutting the cake gets a little too intense. Let’s hope none of their guests were expecting dessert. Or that they don’t mind a little blood in their sweets.
Where did that whole cake-face-smash thing start anyway? That’s got to be one of the dumbest wedding traditions ever.
Who Wore It Best?
The cake or the bride? I bet I know which tasted best. Hint: the one made from tons of sugar.
Is it me, or does this bride look upset? Like, she’s just realized that the man she’s now legally bound to has a cake fetish that she never knew about.
Someone’s a little nippy. Here’s where a bra comes in handy…especially when you know that there’ll be a camera on you ALL DAY LONG.
Alternately, you could use some of those nifty stick-on pasty things they sell in all the upscale bridal shops. Or heck, use Band-Aids. Just use something.
How cute is this? Wait a second — is that Steve peeing in the background?!? DANG IT, STEVE! WHY DO YOU HAVE TO RUIN EVERYTHING?
Everyone has a friend like Steve. Let’s just hope you’re not the Steve in your relationships. Don’t be like Steve, just don’t do it.
One With Nature
Hot new wedding trend: levitating in the forest.
What kind of drugs do you suppose they are on? And did they pass some out as guest favors? The good news is that green is the traditional color of the 30th wedding anniversary, so perhaps they’re truly in it for the long haul.
Painted on Suits and Dresses
If you’ve ever been in a wedding, you know all about the pressure to get into your best shape beforehand.
Now imagine if your wedding day outfit consisted of only body paint. How nervous would you be? How could you ever be confident that you were toned enough to wear nothing but a layer of paint in public?
No One Is Feeling Blue Here!
Hey look, it’s two hunks of burning love.
Sorry, couldn’t resist. Here’s wishing them a lifetime of happiness together. Did you know that there are roughly 83 different Elvis impersonators who will marry you in Vegas? We say skip the high-priced wedding and elope, ala the King!
I don’t know what’s the worst thing about this picture: him biting off the garter, her shiny stripper-style tube top dress, or her hairy legs. Or the fact that she appears to be missing most of her front teeth, or the bored expression on their casually-attired guests’ faces…
Only a true friend will endure the horrid smell of a port-o-potty to help the bride pee in her wedding dress. Out of all the maid of honor duties (hosting a shower, gift record-keeping, planning the Bachelorette party), is there honestly any better gift than the one of bathroom assistance?
Well, this would have been a nice picture if the giant wave hadn’t come up and absolutely doused them. Let’s hope that they had on some undergarments that really held up to this level of soakage.
Were the bride and groom aware that the ocean is, like, wet?
Keeping It Classy
She is wearing her elegant princess dress (is that Chanel?) and he has his orange prison suit on. The sideways hat is a gentlemanly accent. I predict a long, happy marriage between these two. Wonder what their new royal titles will be once they’ve tied the knot.
Here’s what you do in this situation: you send someone out to get another cake, pop a few more bottles of champagne in the meantime, and you laugh it off. Hilarious moments are the memories people treasure the most about weddings, not the perfectly staged, saccharine sweet portraits.
It’s difficult to say if this unfortunate bride started her ungraceful descent all the way at the top of the stairs, or if she just tripped right where she’s now laying. But either way, that is a dramatic and embarrassing time to fall down. Hope she wasn’t hurt.
Wow, this photographer knows what’s really important in a wedding portrait. Let’s hope the creature didn’t spit, like they tend to do. Llamas are also known to act aggressively, to use the bathroom wherever they feel like it, and to smell really bad. I can see why he was invited to the special occasion.
Saying Goodbye Forever?
From the looks of this wistful pose, she’s looking forward to a new life with her soon-to-be-husband.
On the other hand, it looks like she’s getting ready to marry one man but wishing it was another… possibly the maintenance worker who is repairing the roof right by the window?
What A Beautiful Family Picture!
There’s Junior, expressing his apparent distaste for the new stepdad he’s getting. Hey, at least one of the sons looks happy about it.
BTW, did you know that there’s an adult movie titled My Evil Stepson? This family could make their own sequel(s) to it, from the looks of this photo.
The Floating Bride
If you didn’t know any better it would be easy to assume that this bride is a witch who can fly! In reality, she jumped up in the air and the photograph was taken right at the moment that her legs were hidden behind her body and inside her dress. An impressive feat none-the-less and probably not something you will see too often in wedding photographs.
Look At Those Melons!
No seriously look at those melons! This is another one of those photos that were taken at an awkward angle and with just the right fruit in the picture to make for an interesting wedding picture. The look at the bride and groom’s faces only add to the hilarity that ensued because of this pic.
In Case They Haven’t Done It Yet
We don’t know if this couple has done the deed yet. Maybe they are one of those rare couple’s these days who actually waited until their wedding night to seal the deal. If that’s the case these two dogs wanted to make sure the couple was well aware of what to expect later in the night.
A Dog Gone Mistake
If you are going to bring a little girl and a dog to a wedding and then have that little girl walk the dog down the aisle, you should expect this to happen. The look at the little flower girl’s face though is precious and this is a photo we are sure everyone will cherish for many years to come.
How Not To Take A Wedding Photo In One Easy Step
If you are going to take wedding photos near water you should expect someone to fall in. We have seen many wedding fails in which a suit or wedding dress was ruined because of a slip and fall type of scenario. Also be prepared for waves to ruin your outfit, as we have seen in previous wedding fail photographs.
This Wedding Has Gone To The Dogs
Having a dog chew on your beautiful and expensive wedding dress probably doesn’t make your day. With that being said, this adorable little pup helped create a hilarious photo and a lasting memory for this couple. It’s almost as if the puppy is saying “please don’t leave me for him.” So much cute in a single photograph.
Stacking The Deck Against Them
In marriage, as in life, you have to try and make the best of every situation. Take this predicament here. The entire wedding party is soaked, which pretty much guarantees that decent photos won’t be an option. Also, most of these folks probably didn’t think ahead to bring a change of clothes. And even worse, it looks like it might be a little chilly out. But hey, on the bright side of things – they will sure save a lot on their cleaning bills!
Whose Smart Idea Was This?
It’s a bad idea to take a piece of wedding cake from the bottom of the cake — this isn’t Jenga people. It’s an even worse idea to grab the bottom of the cake and pull on it for any reason. The bride doesn’t seem too concerned but the groom looks like he is going to have a heart attack. We have no idea what she was thinking.
Oh, my. The poor thing. It looks like the wind just wasn’t in her favor on her special day. But you gotta hand it to the photographer: he didn’t even flinch. Like a real pro, he just maintained his composure and snapped on away as the bride battled those gusts.
Protip: panties can help out in situations like these. As can good wax jobs.
Raising The Roof. Ouch.
If you are going to celebrate during the reception make sure you have the clearance to do it right. This poor guy met a ceiling he wasn’t expecting to see. This is what happens ladies and gentlemen when you mixed a lot of booze with a lightweight guy. Ouch.
Well There Goes The Cake
Unlike our last cake disaster, this one seems to have been a complete accident. This is why you should never have just one person carrying the cake. But check out the bride and groom in the background — they are getting a kick out of this very unfortunate accident.
A Goose On The Loose
This bird just wanted a closer look and they got really personal with the bride. The look on her groom’s face is priceless. If you are going to look for a picturesque setting you should probably make sure the wildlife isn’t going to eat you or your wedding dress in the process of taking photos. Lesson learned.
Goodnight Sweet Prince
This is what happens when one of two things happens. First, you are really tired because you were nervous and up all night waiting for your wedding day. Two, you get so drunk that you can’t keep yourself awake for your big night. In either case, this is what we call a major wedding fail.
Their Marriage Lasted Until The End Of That Day
If you are going to make it past the first day of wedded bliss the least you can do is keep your eyes on your bride. This guy may have set a new world record for getting his hand caught in the proverbial honey jar. On the other hand, we have to applaud him for his unabashed ability to stare at another female while taking wedding photos. That takes some serious bravery.
When You Gotta Go You Gotta Go
There were two positives to this little boys bathroom break at a Royal Wedding. First, he wasn’t close to the bride and second, it was the Queen. With that being said, you really should potty train your children to avoid these type of viral photos. When you gotta go you gotta go.
Suddenly “Until Death Do You Part” Sounds Very Final
Want a divorce? Not from this girl and her bridesmaids. We’re not sure if they were sending an NRA-fueled message to the world or a very clear message to the groom and any guys hitting on her bridal party. This is a fail on so many personal and societal levels that we just have to move on to the next funny picture on our list.
The Chasing Of The Birds
A picturesque photo interrupted by a bunch of pesky birds. On second thought, it really looks like this bride and groom want to catch a few of these birds, perhaps to release after they say their vows. A very strange picture but one that went viral for its unique take on the traditional wedding photo. It really tells a story — we just don’t know what that story could possibly be about.
Please Tell Us This Isn’t….
The father-daughter dance. Okay, we’re pretty sure this is the bride and groom but that doesn’t really do much to discount whatever in the world is going on in this picture. This girl might be the most aggressive bride we have ever laid our eyes on. Just so strange on so many levels.
Ummm. Where Should I Stand?
As a general rule of thumb when you are going to be attending a wedding, you should stay out of the aisle during the ceremony. It makes it very hard for the professional photographer to take photos when you are hogging all the viewable space with your smartphone camera. Just stay in your seat and everything will be fine.
Sharing A Dance
This kid’s not too happy about dancing at a wedding and he’s not even doing any of the work. It’s funny how many children we find at weddings who are literally riding around on the bride’s dress train. If he falls asleep he’s just another kid who fell victim to this type of soothing dress routine.
We’ve shown a lot of kid fails on our list but we wanted to leave you with a little bit of advice. If you are going to get married and everyone will be around to witness that moment in your life — take some advice from this child and pick a winner.
One horrible way to end your wedding celebration is by canceling your honeymoon. That’s what Facebook billionaire Sean Parker and his new bride had to do after their California Redwood grove wedding in 2013. Local environmental groups circulated rumors that the Parkers had damaged the forest during their festivities and although the newlyweds denied these claims, were forced to cancel their honeymoon due to public outcry. They were even spat on and yelled at in public in the days after their wedding. What a bummer way to start a new marriage!
While alcohol may be flowing all around you on your wedding day, it’s important to pace yourself! This bride looks like she accepted a few too many toasts from her guests and it’s turned her into a blubbering bride. Let’s hope someone took the glass from her so she will have at least a few wedding photos she’ll want to keep!
Nice Bridesmaids’ Outfits
Are these really the outfits that the bride selected for her bridesmaids? Or did they hate their dresses so much, they just took them off? It doesn’t look too kosher with the newly wed groom cuddling up to the bridesmade on his right… We’re guessing this wedding didn’t last long.
Trash The Dress
This newlywed couple is ready to take the plunge – into a bed of mud! It looks like they crashed some kids’ mud party with their wedding, or maybe the other way around. Anyway, you got to hand it to a couple who has a good sense of humor!
