Wedding traditions vary from place to place, from time to time, and from culture to culture. However, in most western societies, there is one tradition that stays the same – the dress. It has to be white and long and make all eyes move in the bride’s direction. But sometimes brides take things a little too far. Take a look at these unusual designs and see for yourself.
This bride must have figured she could catch two birds with one stone – wedding cake and wedding dress all in one! Her sweet dress is sure to make everyone talking.
While this sweetheart seems very comfortable eating her garment, we can’t help but wonder if the guests feel comfortable doing the same.
All the Fluff
Let it be known that the bride is the only thing that matters today. The groom – meh, not so much.
We wonder if she has made sure her guests can fit in the same room with her and her enormous dress.
Paint It Blue
This bride was probably missing her ‘something blue’ when her stylist stepped in with some blue spray paint.
The couple must have loved it so much their bridesmaid wore it too!
Being a fairy princess is every girl’s dream. Usually, that dream fades away as they grow older, but not this one.
With a smile to light up the room, sometimes a bride needs a dress to match.
A Feathery Flair
In nature, it is the peacock that has an impressive set of mesmerizing feathers. The peahens are somewhat plain comparing to their male counterparts. But this bride decided to turn things around.
With that hypnotizing design, she is sure to draw every eye in the room.
One With Nature
Paying homage to mother nature is always a good idea. We can usually agree on that, and that’s why the choice of dress is forgivable.
What’s not as forgivable is the couple throwing chickens in the air for some reason.
Purple is the color of royalty and this bride knows it well.
She doesn’t mind walking around in this heavy dress adorned with Swarovski crystals to let everyone know she’s royal.
Barbies come in different shapes, sizes, professions, and styles. This bride obviously knows all about it as she chose a Barbie themed dress.
Her makeup really turned her into a real life Barbie doll. Now where is her Ken?
Don’t Come Any Closer
A dress this big comes with a statement. And that statement is – you can’t touch this.
With all this volume, no one will be able to mess up her makeup or anything, which is great. Our only concern is how does the groom get to even hug her?
Bell Of The Ball(oons)
This wedding dress is light as it is festive. It will stay that way as long as nobody comes close with any sharp objects.
Good thing those balloons aren’t filled with helium. Otherwise, the bride would have been too busy floating around the room.
The Devil Wears a Wedding Dress
Who said goth people only wear black? This couple obviously had a less-than-conventional wedding, but they didn’t give up on a dress in traditional white and a bouquet of roses.
The white military boots and horns are just the right finishing touch for this look.
Sustainability is the name of the game in the last few years. People recycle, reuse, and repurpose all the time.
This bride obviously cares a lot about the planet as her wedding dress is made with plastic bags and papers.
Full of Air
You’re the bride. The star of the night. And as such, why not become part of the decorations with an inflatable dress made entirely out of balloons?
This one of a kind is a definite showstopper. Just make sure not to hug the bride too tightly.
A Hairy Situation
Hair and makeup are essential when it comes to the glam squad in charge of a bride on her wedding day. This one might have needed more than one hairdresser.
With a wig collection that will put any drag queen to shame, this bride knows how to create a truly unique look. Do you think her groom would be dressed up as a huge hairbrush?
Home of The Brave
Uncle Sam’s niece is getting married and we all knew this is the dress she’s about to wear.
The only question we have here is why would a bride need a handbag on her wedding day?
Nothing makes you want do dance more than a big, colorful dress.
This dress, along with the flowery headpiece, is sure to have put everyone at the wedding in a dancy mood.
Her parties are epic, her hosting skills are impeccable, and she’ll never let you forget it.
The hostess with the mostess took things to a whole new level by wearing the dessert table. Have cupcake!
When she’s off her bridal duties, this bride must spend most of her free time wearing football jerseys and attending games.
Who said your wedding dress can be sporty? Go team!
She has a crown, a scepter, and a heavy, bejeweled back piece. She is ready for the carnival! Oh wait, wedding. That’s what she’s ready for.
We can only hope that this outfit is not as heavy as it looks so she can dance.
This bride’s dress takes up the space of three grown people.
She must have an entourage of people to help her in and out of the car.
Everything is better with chocolate.
Well, almost everything. While chocolate at a wedding sounds like a good fit, a dress made out of white chocolate could be somewhat hard to dance in.
A Whole New World
Princess Jasmine must have been an inspiration for many young girls growing up. Having a palace and a pet tiger sound like a dream.
This bride kept drawing inspiration from Jasmine well into adulthood. Her wedding dress is ready to step on the flying carpet!
Getting married can be an expensive business. And what better way to save money than have big corporations sponsor your event?
Who knew wedding gowns had such commercial potential?
Keeping Mosquitoes Away?
This bride is scared of her legs being bit by mosquitoes. That much is clear.
What’s not so clear is why she doesn’t mind getting mosquito bites on any other exposed part of her body.
The Sweetest Kind
There is no such thing as too much chocolate, and this blushing bride knows all about it.
This delicious dress is every sweet tooth’s dream. We all know what’s for dessert.
Reigning supreme as the queen of the night, the bride needs to be dressed appropriately. The groom is a whole different story.
These two obviously have their priorities straight. As do the groom’s friends.
Hide and Seek
Under all these jewels, makeup, and heavy fabrics, there is a bride. You might need a second to see her, but don’t worry – she’s there.
The combined weight of everything she’s wearing must be so heavy!
Curls and Ruffles
This bride’s hairdo was probably inspired by her favorite childhood china doll.
Those blonde curls go hand in hand with her gown’s ruffles and garter belts.
Under the Sea
Some girls looked up to Ariel, the little mermaid, when they were little. Others, like whoever made this dress, obviously looked up to Ursula, the sea witch with the body of an octopus.
Apparently, witches deserve a happy ever after too.
Orange Is My Favorite Color Make way for the bride and groom – flaming hot Cheetos in human form!
These two match not only in style, but also in attitude. Wouldn’t you love to see some more of this couple’s wedding photoshoot?
Women who are always cold might as well get married in a sweater. Or better yet, a full, head-to-toe, white crochet piece completed with giant bows.
Well, it’s her choice and all we can do is congratulate her and hope that she’s happy with it.
Little Bo Peep
Usually, a groom is a bride’s best accessory. In this case, however, the sheep complements the dress in a way no groom ever will.
We have a pretty good guess about the identity of this wedding’s ring bearer.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
White represent purity and innocence, but let’s face it – it can get quite boring at some point. This unusual couple opted for something a little more colorful.
This lovely bride knows how to paint with all the colors of the wind and has a groom to match.
The Floral Arrangement
Who needs a bouquet when there are hundreds of flowers sewn into your dress? Oh, and in case anyone has missed it, she’s wearing flowers on her head too.
One thing’s for sure – this bride smells wonderful.
More Questions Than Answers
So many questions can be asked about this picture. Where are the bride’s hands? Why is the groom holding a rolled-up magazine? Is that object on the side an ashtray? Why is it in the picture at all? Who knows?
The few things we do know however, is that the bride seems happy with her choice of dress and her choice of man.
High School Sweethearts
Ah the American high school most classic trope: captain of the football team with the head cheerleader.
This wedding is sure to have a breathtaking halftime show.
Long Train Running
One way of getting your guests to stand still and not block anyone’s view during the ceremony is to let them hold the dress’s train. Unfortunately, the train is rarely that long.
This way, all the guests are taking part in the event.
Isn’t It Ironic?
A wedding made of paper? Unique but not unheard of.
This dress, however, is made out of divorce papers. How ironic!
The Trophy Wife
She’s beauty, she’s grace, she’ll say it to your face. Or at the very least, wear a fully golden dress.
Now her groom can tell everyone he’s actually won an Oscar.
Simply the Best
Tina Turner is iconic. That fact is indisputable. Her wedding dress, however, was pretty controversial.
She wore this Giorgio Armani in 2013 when she married her husband Erwin Bach.
Find More Feathers!
You can see this bride’s sense of humor from the smile on her face. Then you take in the rest of the picture and you learn a lot more about her.
You learn that she loves chicken, accessories, and of course, feathers.
A True Patriot
This bride must be marrying a president. Or at the very least running for president and using her wedding to jumpstart her campaign.
Assuming her guests are as patriotic as she is, we guess they will be having burgers and eat apple pies for dessert.
“Why do you wear blue? It will bring out your beautiful eyes!”
This bride took that advice to the extreme with a blue, wearable ocean.
Now You See Me, Now You Don’t
Most brides want to stand out at their weddings, but it looks like this one is all about blending in.
Maybe she has a military background, maybe she believes camouflage will never go out of style.
Next Level Ready
She loves kids, wants to start making babies right away, and she wants the world to know. So why not do it with a statement dress made out of diapers?
With this dress, she is ready to absorb whatever life puts in her way.
The Queen Mother
Those of you who watched Honey Boo Boo on TV, must know June Shannon – Honey Boo Boo’s mother.
Little Honey is often busy being a beauty queen but Shannon wouldn’t let anyone steal the spotlight on her wedding day. Not even her husband with his matching suit.
This Girl Is on Fire
This bride is coming in hot with a fiery design that puts Katniss Everdeen to shame.
As long as the bridesmaids don’t burn their hands holding the train, this wedding should run smoothly.
