It’s terrible, of course, but most of these folks laughed about it later. We hope they don’t mind us laughing about it now!
A “Just Married” Emasculating Moment
This is the face of deep regret. Why didn’t this groom man-up and pay for a limousine? Alternatively, he might have rented a car.
Imagine, he could have been commandeering a steady chariot of pomp and decorum. Why? Why didn’t he listen to her?
I Do Take Thee in Bondage
This bride will be embarrassed by this forever. She will never forget it. A perfectly good group shot, ruined.
For the rest of her life, she will be saying to herself now and again, “Why didn’t we make it ‘M & S’? Why? Why? Why?”
Everyone in the room knows what is happening, except for our blindfolded and duped groom. Guests squeal with uncontainable laughter watching him struggle to figure it out.
The bride, too, must be relishing this moment. Perhaps it is she behind the lens of the camera?
Just as this smart-looking family asked where Spot had gone, hoping to include him in the picture, the photographer suddenly realized, they just did.
Spot relieving himself in the grass was not the pupper pose they had hoped for, but with the click of the shutter, it was too late. A new memory was snapped.
A 'Mooving' Wedding Day
Not sure what is going on here, but there must be an explanation. The bride seems open and welcoming of this bridal cow.
Is it some kind of wedding gift? It appears to be a token to the newlyweds’ moo life together.
‘You Shouldn’t Have’
Is she that disappointed with the ring? Or is she a victim of a practical joke?
Others behind her look amused. But the look on her face makes you wonder if she’s peering at a baby tarantula.
If Looks Could Kill
This image elicits a lot of questions. Is he ripping her hair out? Why doesn’t she just stop walking?
Is her father the single-most clumsy person in the universe?
Who put Jack in charge of the cake? All he had to do was retrieve the cake from the back of the minivan and set it on the cake table not even fifty feet away. Why Jack? Why?
Everyone knows he’s an accident waiting to happen. Wait one minute. That guy on the left with his foot slightly raised....oh my God, did he trip Jack?!
B-Movie Slasher Flick
Coming soon to a low budget theater near you: “The Wedding Slasher.” It’s a horror movie about a mass murderer who gets married. At the reception he unleashes, starting with the bride. He slashes away, horrifying the wedding guests; he goes after the bridesmaids next. But he doesn’t stop there.
The groomsmen’s necks, one by one, are viciously slit, bloody tuxedoed corpses lay in a pile. Guests flee in a screaming stampede out the doors of the reception room.
‘She’s going to LOVE these,’ thought the groom, as he paid for a pair of personalized pink boxers.
Quite to the contrary, the bride was so mortified she could not bear to look at the offending purchase.
Another Gent Pleased with His New Ownership
He said he thought it was her shoulder. “I really thought it was your shoulder, sweet cakes.”
The bride’s expression seems to say, ‘I’m going to tolerate this one time, one time, you hear?’
A Captive Audience
She’s the last one standing ever since her batty old uncle grabbed an accordion and started belting out the family classics.
“Roll out the barrel, and we’ll have a barrel of fun.” The bride is not amused.
Bride of Terror
The background is a brick wall, but, perhaps, more appropriately, we’d expect the browns and yellows of an Afghanistan landscape, dotted, naturally, with caves inhabited by a loose-knit band of bridal terrorists.
She’s one tough hombre.
This is a solid message to her would-be groom. Unaltered male dogs pee on items they claim as their territory, and this bride is Fido’s, despite the groom’s rightful claim.
So much for the elegant send-off photo.
‘Will You Marry Me?’
You’re taking on a huge risk proposing at a sporting event. Anything can happen. Someone might accidentally spill a pint of draft beer all over your soon-to-be fiancé just as you pop the question. Or...
A crazy granny might photobomb your meaningful moment.
His and Her Assault Rifles
It was a tense moment, for all, as this gun-toting couple exchanged vows. Most brides carry a bouquet of flowers, but this bride has her finger on the trigger of an automatic assault rifle.
And...is that a body in the background?
Who thought this would be a good idea? Pile the entire wedding party on a rickety old dock and see what happens.
Total panic. Obviously.
Bigfoot in the background is one problem, but why is the bride’s face so forlorn?
Let’s hope she's not looking at her wedding ring! She’s giving every indication that she’s set to burst into tears. The groom’s distress is also apparent.
Nothing can prepare the bridal couple for a wedding day disaster of this magnitude. Caught on camera mere seconds before the three-tier cake’s fateful demise, this is a wedding memory that will be etched in their minds forever.
Please say the top tier did not hit the floor!
Just going by the expressions on people’s faces and our bride’s retching reaction, the neon-green specialty drink tastes like Nyquil.
A rousing good time! And an unfortunate shot - an image that cannot be unseen.
Crawling from the Sea
Here’s an unlikely photobomb. It looks like a rather brisk day down by the beach, and yet, a naked man bares all in an effort, it can only be imagined, to photobomb this lovely couple.
Poor couple. They probably thought the sea was the most romantic setting for a wedding photo. And it usually is, when the naked guy over there isn't crawling out of the water.
Boys Will be Boys
Where is this kid’s father? By now, the precocious little guy has probably earned himself a swift message across the rear end.
Or, at the very least, a stern talkin’ to. Sure, it’s a backyard wedding, but don’t leave your manners indoors!
So what?! The groom performed a strip-tease act right before the first dance, what’s the big deal?
It’s hot in that room, he cooled off. This bride loves him anyway. No matter what. (Wait. He is the groom, right?)
We Need a Spot Mop
There is no other explanation. The man in the pink shirt is employing a downed woman as a mop.
Drinks get spilled on the dance floor—it’s dangerous—these things happen. (Just a little to the right and it’s as good as gold again.)
Sorry, buddy. It’s too late. On the other hand, we have a sneaking suspicion that this groom, dutifully kneeling with his bride at the reverent altar of a Catholic church, is the victim of a prank.
These are exactly the type of gags groomsmen like to play. We wonder if anyone laughed out loud during the solemn ceremony.
Swans. Those downy white birds of love. Just don’t stand too close. These massive birds can be very aggressive. And this specimen has his glare set on her scrumptious bouquet.
The bride looks frightened, for good reason! These birds weigh up to 28 pounds and have a powerful, eight-foot wingspan capable of breaking the bones of predatory animals.
Yaps and growls and that rapid headshaking-thing they do, the object of attack tenaciously held in teeth — the pint-sized mutt with the curled-up tail is viciously attacking the trim of this bride’s beautiful train.
Meanwhile, dog number two, the handsome white one, is looking at them saying, ‘I’m a good dog, pant, pant, pant, see how good I am.’
In shock, the bride is overcome with a fainting spell. Meanwhile, the two groomsmen on the right are too busy watching the action to catch her as she tumbles backward.
The groom, apparently, took the opportunity of the wedding day, to marry his best man, instead.
Excuse me, happy couple, uh, we don’t know how to say this, but there is a herd of stampeding cattle just south of y’all.
It’s probably too late to run. Perhaps a jog east or west will save you from being trampled to death?
This Shot Is for the Dogs!
Awkward! Shocking! What are the chances? The groom is in grey, and the male doggo is also grey.
It’s as if the dog is mind-melding with the groom’s honeymoon thoughts.
Disclaimer: Some Marriages Have Been Known to Cause Mental Health Issues
In this state, so many marriages were causing mental health problems, they decided to locate the office of the bureau of marriage licenses in the same building as the mental health department.
It’s just more convenient, and it saves people time.
Not The Hair!
Ah, nature. So nice, so green, so peaceful, so...someone get that squirrel off me!
Poor bride. We can't imagine what it must be like to pay good money for a good bridal hairdo only for it to be ruined by a random rodent.
Don't Shake the Bottle!
Nothing says 'party' more than popping a huge bottle of champagne. It's important to remember that oftentimes, all those bubbles need to be handled by a professional.
Looks like the groom's rookie mistake backfired and now the bride's dress will not be the only thing that needs to be dry-cleaned.
Um... Do You Mind?
This couple's dog is everything but camera shy. We know the pup is well-meaning. After all, he got all dressed up for the occasion. But someone needs to let it know that this isn't just the daily walk.
Good thing that the humans in the photo seem like they wouldn't hold this accident against their fur-baby.
Munching on the Bouquet
A popular way of adding life and color to a couple's wedding pictures is to throw their dog into the mix, and this couple is no different.
Though we have no doubt that this good boy is generally disciplined, it looks like this time he couldn't help himself from attempting a bite on his human's colorful bouquet.
When this couple went downstairs to meet their guests, they were met by smiling faces, live music, and handfuls of rice thrown in the air. It looks like they were also met with some slippery steps.
And this is why you should always hold someone's hand (or at least the railing) when walking down the stairs.
Long Train Running
Cliche as it may sound, a good maid of honor is essential when it comes to executing a perfect wedding day.
This maid of honor is obviously taking her daily duties very seriously and the bride now has the picture to prove it.
Wine and Dine
Something tells us that those three bridesmaids have known each other for years.
We wonder if now that one of them had an unfortunate wine accident, the other two will spill wine on their own dresses in solidarity.
Insignificant as it may seem, a bride's veil needs to be carefully picked. It has to be fascinated in a way that makes it easy for the bride to take it off after the ceremony, but not too loose so it doesn't fly off with every little gust of wind.
It appears that this bride didn't get the memo on how to properly wear her veil. Thankfully, she had an entourage of men available to help her out.
Just an Accessory
"And I want my bridesmaids to be wearing purple. Oh, and red/purple flowers. Oh, and a shotgun to match my own!"
Something tells us that this bride is a fan of hunting. Maybe that's how she met her husband.
Entertaining the Guests
We were pretty confused by this picture. The first thing we saw was, of course, the bride's mortified face. Then we saw that the groom's hand was held up for some reason. And finally, we saw the hysterically laughing guest in the back.
Could this be a skit put together to entertain the guest? Could this be a family tradition? Could this be something else? No one but the couple knows for sure.
Falling Head Over Heels
The groom taking his new wife's garter belt off with his teeth is nothing new at weddings. The bride falling off her chair in the process, however, is not that common.
Good thing the bridesmaids and groomsmen were all around to make sure no one gets hurt.
We would love to know what kind of food was served at the reception to make the bride's tongue go blue like that.
Perhaps she realized she didn't have her 'something blue' and got some last-minute blue candy to sort it out.
The Beach Boy
There's nothing like the beach as a background for the perfect wedding photoshoot. The sea, the sand, and the sky make for an ideal setting.
Unfortunately, swimmers and other beach-goers should also be taken into consideration when choosing a location for a photo.
Stealing Her Thunder
Unless you're the bride, never wear a white dress to a wedding. This simple rule usually goes without saying. But apparently, not everyone is aware of it.
This bride must have been shocked to see none other than her now mother-in-law wearing a long white gown on her wedding day.
It seems that walking down the aisle could be mission impossible for some. Take this couple for instance.
While we have no doubt that they learned how to walk when they were little, they still managed to trip and fall on top of one another on their way to say 'I do'.
In case anyone was wondering, this bride wanted it to be clear that she was waiting for the right man and that she has finally found him.
With a playful nod to the film "Robin Hood: Men in Tights", she couldn't be happier about not having to wear metal panties anymore.
Sure, it's important to look at the camera when you get your picture taken. As it turns out, looking at what's happening behind you could be just as important.
You can be sure that this couple will always look over their shoulder next time they say 'cheese'.
The Third Wheel
More often than not, a man needs to be reassured that just because his best friend is getting married, doesn't mean he's going anywhere.
Apparently, this guy didn't feel sufficiently reassured and needed a little something extra. Hopefully, this picture was all the reassurance he needed.
Among the moments a bride wants to remember from her wedding day are walking down the aisle, exchanging rings, and some drunk friends dancing.
A moment that she would rather forget is how her limousine never showed and she had to hitchhike to her own wedding. Take that as a note, photographer.
Blocking the View
The best and worst thing about modern-day technology is that everyone has a camera within reach. Professional photographers would probably describe it as too many chefs in one kitchen.
All those other cameras would otherwise be fine to have around, but one of them is tactlessly blocking the view from the camera that matters most.
Partying Gone Wrong
Whoever took this photo clearly has no desire to live, because whenever any of these three women get a hold of them, they're dead.
Then again, how drunk do you actually have to be to look like that?! And to the one on the far left, have you ever heard of sunscreen?
Match Made in Heaven
These two definitely belong together - they're both outdoorsy, they love camo, they love french kissing...But most importantly, they're both as tacky as each other.
We would have loved to see the expression on that photographer's face, though.
The Briefs Buddies
It's always important to remember what your part is in a wedding. What's less important is to write it on your briefs and drop your pants for a photo.
We're sure the groom had fun with this one. At least until he had to deal with his bride after she saw this photo.
Nothing like a mischievous little kid to destroy an otherwise perfectly good looking photo. We're sure this little guy was grounded for a very long time once the bride saw this photo.
Then again, we're sure his brother had something to do with it. After all, who do you think taught that little kid what the middle finger means?
There are few things more embarrassing for a woman than to have her breast accidentally slip out for everyone to see. But to have it happen on your wedding day?! There are simply no words. We really hope the photographer took a quick look, ripped up the photo, and threw it in the garbage.
Then again, that's a pretty bold choice for a wedding dress - just look at that low neckline!
The Bride from Little House on the Prairie
After the initial reaction of laughing hysterically at this photo, one has to ask, what year was this taken in? Because even for the '60s or '70s, these are some pretty questionable fashion choices for the bridesmaids.
Not even the little girl was spared! And as if those dresses weren't bad enough, they decided to get matching hats!
We don't know if it was the bride that had this idea but, apart from having a few inside jokes and a funny pic to remember the day by, we really hope she left this one out of the wedding photo album.
Not the classiest photo to include in your wedding day memories.
Every bride is different, and they can choose to wear whatever they like on their wedding day. And although we do understand that times have changed and today's wedding dress choices have become more, well, sexy, this is just a bit much.
Besides, with all that fabric hanging on the back of her "dress", she could've afforded to cover up a little more skin. Then again, if that's what the bride wants, that's what's happening!
What Were They Looking At?
What in the world was going on to make these people react that way? Did a bird poop on the photographer? Did the bride's mom kiss the groom's dad? We would love to know what was happening here.
And by the looks on their faces, they're not going to need this photo to remember what happened that day.
What a lovely photo of the bride and groom after eating their wedding cake, which was clearly made with strawberries and cream. The only problem is, with a tiny bit of imagination, it actually looks like they beat each other up and took a picture of their bloody faces afterward!
With a little more set design, it could almost look like a wedding scene from a Quentin Tarantino movie.
We do not know what is going on here, but it certainly doesn't look like a wedding-appropriate photo! Were they trying to be funny? Did the photographer catch them about to do something cheeky? Was the groom trying to help her get up?
Then again, we guess as long as it was the bride and groom caught in this position, everything is fine. Classless...but fine.
The groom should have followed his bride's lead and grabbed a cup of coffee. Then again, it looks like he really needed that rest.
He looks so peaceful and sound-asleep. We hope he's not under the impression that the rest of his marriage will be this easy.
Wedding Cake Fail
This bride wanted to make a statement with a very real-looking, life-sized, over-the-top wedding cake. But somehow, judging by her face, she doesn't look too happy with the result. And honestly, we wouldn't be either.
Then again, it wasn't exactly the baker's fault, was it? They did a pretty accurate impression of the bride. The bride's actual wedding dress, on the other hand, wasn't the most beautiful choice in the world.
Down She Goes
Talk about a perfectly timed photo. Great job on the photographer's part. The cake handler, on the other hand, is fired.
We just hope the entire wedding wasn't as ruined by this fall as the cake was.
Anything But Water
Apparently, when the groom said 'I do' to the part where the priest says 'in sickness or in health', that didn't include rescuing your bride from falling in a pool of water.
Even though it looks like he's trying to grab her feet and stretch his hand, it still looks like he's not willing to bend more than that to save his falling bride. Just jump in the water, man!
Best Photobomb Ever
Here is a lovely picture of a happy bride and her happy bridesmaids...made even better by the random woman sneaking up behind the window! To be honest, that woman looks as happy to be there as the bride herself.
We wonder if it was a friend playing a prank on the bride, or just a (very weird) random passersby that saw an opportunity to make people laugh.
Longing for Maintenance Guy
When you find your bride looking longingly at the maintenance guy outside, you know it's time to call the whole thing off.
The photographer couldn't have taken this picture at a better time. It almost looks as if she's caressing the man's butt!
Odd Man Out
Maybe his partner went to the bathroom right before they decided to take the picture. Or maybe he was the odd sibling that hasn't found his true love yet. Either way, he seems to be dealing with it perfectly fine.
Don't worry, buddy. You'll find your soulmate when you least expect it.
DIY Balloon Bride
Certain projects — like choosing your wedding dress — should never be DIY.
Although we must say that's quite the creative way to fluff up a dress.
The Centaur Bride
Couldn't the photographer just fix the train of the dress so it didn't look like this bride had horse legs?! Apart from that, the photo would've been beautiful.
But hey, maybe the bride just didn't have time to shave.
Let it be known that the bride is the queen of this day and nothing matters but her. Not even the groom.
Does he have a crown and a scepter? Didn't think so. For all anyone cares, he can stay there under the pink fluff that is his wife's gown and struggle to breathe.
Can’t Touch This
A dress this big is definitely a statement piece. The statement? Nobody touch me. Not even the groom by the looks of it.
Actually, miss Bride here may be on to something — this dress is a great way to keep the huggers at bay while making sure her makeup remains intact.
The Camera's up Here
Ahh, puberty. The hormones, the acne, the awkward... everything. We're happy for this pair of twins to have each other through this difficult time. However, we do think, they need some parental guidance.
You know, like teaching them that you shouldn't wear t-shirts to a wedding or stare into the bride's cleavage.
No Room for the Groom
Standard cars usually have room for three people in the back. But no back seat is a match for this enormous dress.
No wonder the bride looks like she's struggling to smile, she must have just realized that the groom is going to have to find a different ride.
Veils — out. Unicorn masks — in! This hysterical unicorn mask is one of the best things we've seen all week, and the humor in this picture makes it even better.
The angle makes it look like even the cameraman wasn't able to keep a straight face and a steady hand to properly take the picture!
Walk the Plank
Those of you who've been online in the past few years know all about planking. But what about this couple's kids?
A few years from now, they will look through their parents' wedding pictures with no idea of what that... priest, maybe? is doing in the background.
Ah, the look of... sheer horror? What happened here exactly? We have so many questions. Obviously, we want to know why the bride looks so horrified. Maybe the size of the diamond is not what she expected?
Next, we'd like to know why the thing seems to be aired on the local news. And then, we'd like to know what the deal is with the parade in the background. Answers will be rewarded with our eternal gratitude.
The tallest bride ever
This bride broke the Guinness World Record for the tallest bride ever. Or at least that's what we thought until we realized her hubby was picking her up.
It looks like this woman chose herself quite a lifter to be her husband. Holding up a grown person in what must be a really heavy gown takes some serious biceps. Looks like he will have no problem carrying her over the threshold after the ceremony is over.
No Doves, Then
While the happy couple really looks happy on their wedding day, the best man clearly has some issues to sort through.
Maybe he is scared of birds, or maybe one of them dropped a little 'present' on him the second the picture was taken.
Raising the Roof
There comes a point in every wedding when the groom's friends lift him on their sturdy shoulders and start dancing. Sometimes they bounce him into the air. This time they bounced him into the ceiling.
We just hope the bride didn't have to go through a similar experience. Her hairdo cost way too much to be ruined by the chandeliers.
