Forever In Our Minds: 30+ Tacky Weddings People Have Attended And Won’t Ever ForgetBy Aileen D
While we don’t expect the bride and groom to shell out that much money for their wedding, we do expect them to maintain some degree of class that this occasion calls for. Pastel gowns, a solemn ceremony, and probably a grammatically correct invitation. Those aren’t much to ask for, are they?
We didn’t need any more reason to hate public functions and events. We already have an extended list of motivations! But because we want to be there when you celebrate your special day, we have sent out the RSVP and bought you a gift.
The least we can ask for, really, is a little class. No one deserves to attend a wedding with any of this faux pas. Keep on reading to see what we’re talking about.
Passion For Fashion
When you’re a long-time fan of a movie or an artist, they’re a huge part of your life. Some fans love a movie so much they literally get it tattooed on their skin. It’s a way of letting people know just how much they love a singer or an actor, or a movie.
It’s not unusual for adults to be fans of children’s movies, but this woman took it a bit too far. If you are a grown-up and adore Cars, that’s fine. Honestly, we love it too. But wearing this pair of heels at your own wedding? We can only hope her gown will hide the shoes!
This couple had been together for a long time. He was certain she was the one, and she couldn’t wait for him to ask the question. He planned to ask her hand on their anniversary night. The stage was set.
Poor guy. He said his stomach was all in knots. We had told him it was totally understandable and then reassured him that she’d say yes. But we didn’t know that he had another reason to say that. To the bathroom, quick!
We all have our eccentricities and peculiarities. It’s pleasant to talk about them now and then. Tell the world that we’re all human. But there are some things best reserved for the honeymoon. Although, we hadn’t caught her wearing lingerie…
The bride came clad in satin PJs with a Minnie Mouse costume on her head. How do you think he was able to show up with a straight face to the office after having worn this childish fantasy in a room packed with loved ones and colleagues?
We can always count on a mini-mart to house the snacks that we crave in the dead of night. There are all sorts of drinks too, chilled just the way you like it. You could get a pack of cigarettes or even microwave-ready meals at your convenience.
But the last thing we had expected was to inconveniently find a couple saying their vows before the cashier. While it might have been a breeze for these guests to choose their pick of food for the reception, it would have been better to hire a catering service.
For the ‘Gram
Nothing can keep two people from saying their vows before loved ones and family, not even the lack of funds. While these two were constrained to hold their wedding inside a Walmart store, the couple said they had no regrets.
Of course, management had to switch the PA system between the bride and groom reading their vows and calling housekeeping to aisle 5. And guests had to fold the seats properly after the ceremony. But all in all, everyone said that it was a success!
What In The World?
Is there anything more cliché than a wedding ceremony? It’s like every wedding follows the same old recipe. If you’ve attended a few weddings in this lifetime, you know what we’re talking about. It’s not hard to understand, then, why some brides decide to innovate.
This bride wanted to mix tradition with innovation, but she didn’t know how to do it. Then, the groom jokingly suggested that they should tell the guests to wear clown masks for the ceremony. It’s kind of hard to imagine she’d find this idea acceptable, but this image is enough proof.
One Too Many
After a fairytale ending, everyone was in a celebratory mood. The champagne was pouring, guests were coming in, and everyone was eager to wish the newlyweds the best for their life together. But the bride might have had one too many.
Well, she might have had a couple from the start. She said it helped keep the nerves at bay. Then she had more during the reception, and there was no stopping her. Fortunately, she married a man she could rely on when she needed him.
Are You Sure About This?
With just one look, we can tell that the groom has married the right woman. You can tell that they are truly meant for each other, considering that they agreed to tie the knot at this peculiar location. We’re legit concerned for their safety!
So many things could have gone wrong at this moment. Do we even have to talk about them? All we know is that these two are probably adrenaline junkies and have a tacky sense of style. We wonder how the bride was able to walk in that terrain with those shoes!
Off Their List
This man and woman couldn’t stand another day without getting hitched. So the morning they got their marriage license, they decided then and there to call the pastor so she could officiate the ceremony before brewing themselves a pot of coffee.
After crossing this item off their list, it felt like such a big win! We would feel victorious too. How else can you top this achievement? Bet this last-minute ceremony primed their day and every other day of their lives. To the early birds!
Another One Up
For some moms, seeing their daughters dressed in white takes them back to that special moment they were wedded. Especially if she chooses to upcycle their wedding gown. But for some moms, the ceremony means something entirely different. And we don’t say that in a good way.
Some mothers feel like they are being upstaged! Since this mother-in-law couldn’t handle the idea that everyone’s eyes would be glued to her daughter-in-law, she decided to do a one-up on her. The priest nearly wedded her off to her son!
Recycling, That’s All
The bride and the groom were hoping that this one guest would say no. They invited her out of courtesy, but it was only a couple of weeks before the wedding, and they hadn’t received a response from her. At the very last minute, she sent an RSVP.
And just as they had expected, she came to the wedding committing another social blunder. She might not have been meaning to, but she could have chosen to have her bridal gown adjusted for the wedding. Better yet, she could not have come.
‘Til Death Do Us Part
How do you think these two lovebirds met? Well, they first laid eyes on each other at a bungee-jumping activity. They both had a need for an adrenaline rush, and since then, it has been one heart-thumping activity after another for these two.
Most weddings, although joyous, can be a bore. You have to sit through a couple announcing their vows in front of everyone. But this couple wanted to break that stereotype. That’s why they decided to host the wedding at death-defying heights.
Hide The Children!
These days, it’s not unusual to meet people who think weddings are boring. Couples want to keep their guests entertained during the ceremony so that the energy is always positive during this special day. And coming up with random ideas is a way of ensuring everyone will have a good time at your wedding.
Well, you don’t have to let your creativity go that far. If you’re having a country-themed wedding ceremony, we’re sure there are other ways of innovating while still keeping men from being indecent in public. Remember, there’ll probably be kids at your wedding!
Inspired by a Story
For most folks, ending up with the love of their lives is enough of a fairytale ending. After all, what are the odds of marrying your first love? But this couple didn’t stop there. Their wedding theme had to be inspired by a fictional, dystopian story.
Now, we have never watched this particular show. But judging by the synopsis and this shoot, we’re relieved we didn’t watch it. We have read that women in the story were forced to have children against their wishes. We’re declining the invitation.
Bring The Whole Community
As much as we would love to have you come to the wedding, do respect the invite which states that you’re only invited to bring a plus one. No more than that. Please don’t bother bringing the whole clan. Love lots, the bride and groom.
As if those song suggestions were not suggestive enough. Can you imagine this clucking woman leading her chicks to the buffet table? Come this way, folks. Follow me / Why don’t you follow me to a place where food is free?
The Intention That Matters
So here’s a fact. There have been more marriages solemnized in Las Vegas than in any other state in the world! With enough beer and entertainment, you’re guaranteed to find the lone person you will want to spend the rest of your life with!
Just look at all these couples lined up to declare their love for each other. The beautiful thing about this arrangement is that they are each other’s witnesses too. Imagine getting married at a time when loyalty feels like a prehistoric concept!
Some individuals love to rain on other people’s parades. Not only did this couple manage to come late to the wedding, but they also managed to steal everyone’s attention by dressing up like they were going to the grocery store or something.
You would think that the bride telling them the color tone for the wedding would have sufficed. But no! This couple decided that the rules didn’t apply to them. They showed up at the wedding only to feast with the newlyweds.
A Special Guest
Depending on the budget you’re on, you probably won’t get to invite all of your friends. Choosing which ones will make the select list is not an easy task, especially because some people’s feelings get hurt easily. For this couple, there was only one guest that had to be at the ceremony.
As you can see, there are not a lot of people at their wedding. They were clearly on a budget, so they couldn’t invite all of their friends, but they had to invite Thanos. Now we know what the evil warlord gets up to when he isn’t trying to annihilate half of the world’s population.
Jumping Head First!
If you want to have a successful relationship, you should probably get to know your partner first. Don’t be moving in together after one month just because you’re oh so in love. Remember: the first few months of every relationship are perfect, but that doesn’t mean you’ll live happily ever after.
This couple met online, and their connection was so intense that they decided to get married after they met in person for the first time. Their friends warned them they shouldn’t jump into a relationship so fast. Well, they obviously didn’t hear and even made fun of the advice they got!
Wear Your Heart On Your…
Who can’t help but fall for a romantic? These are the brave people who are willing to do anything for love. They are unafraid to pursue their love interests and cross oceans for them. They will unapologetically shout from the rooftops and wear their heart on their…
…caps. Not that there’s anything wrong with loving a pair of these. But there is a certain etiquette about wearing hats indoors. He should have taken these off and paid a little courtesy to the bride and bridesmaids with their all-too revealing necklines.
The bride and groom were handing out invitations to everyone. The groom had decided on his best man, but they were both wary about the latter bringing his girlfriend. The couple knew that she was just a little territorial when it came to her man.
While there isn’t anything wrong with that, understand that she has acted out on several occasions just after seeing her boyfriend talk with another woman. And after finding out that he came to the wedding alone, she photoshopped herself in it.
A Certain Death
Each culture and religion has its own traditions. And most couples tweak it based on their preferences. You might see guests light floating lanterns and cast a wish or the bride throwing a bouquet for any of her bridesmaids to catch.
But this bride had her maiden name engraved on a metal tag, then she pinned it to a fish and then sent it down the river. We’re not sure, but she might have meant to let it sleep with the fishes and dispose of her old life.
This bride and groom had set a budget and were sticking to it. To ensure that their guests would, too, they gave out these invitations that helped guests choose how pricey their meals would be. It all depended on the gift they’d be giving.
The guest looks at the invitation and loosens the tie around his neck. “Uhm. Yeah. I’m allergic to seafood, so we’ll cross that one off.” He nervously looks around. “Look, how about you give me a glass of water?” He makes himself comfortable. “It’ll only be four hours tops!“
Guests knew how much of a cheapskate this couple was. But they didn’t expect them to be this thrifty. They had invested in ‘Gram-worthy attire, and they were shocked beyond belief to know that they would be seated in an open parking lot.
Of course, they couldn’t complain to the wedding organizer or the bride and groom. They just had to bear their losses and use the invitation as shade from the sun. Well, at least their food would be served warm, right?
This couple didn’t want to sweat the details. They didn’t hire a wedding organizer, nor did they hand out expensive-looking invitations. They personally invited loved ones, but they sent this to those who they couldn’t ask in person. Kudos for the creativity!
Potatoes, potatos. A wedding invitation is still a wedding invitation. If you don’t want to go, then it’s not a loss. If you do, you can enjoy the event like the losers that we are, but at least we will have fun together. Is that a deal or what?
Oftentimes, people shell out a lot for their weddings, only for most of these items to be used once. Well, this couple wanted to reinvent the game. The groom decided to apply his handyman skills, and the bride decided to market it.
Consider this urinal pre-loved. Bidding starts at $150, and delivery expenses will be at your cost. Expect that the urinal will give off a certain smell, but not to worry, we put ice on it on the day of the wedding.
When You Settle For Less…
If you follow pop culture stuff, you must have noticed that female artists, as well as gay male artists, usually choose extravagant outfits to debut on red carpets. On the other hand, straight men always settle for the usual suit. It’s pretty unfair, really.
It’s annoying to see women going all out while men put on the first outfit they see. This bride spent hours getting ready, not to mention the hours she wasted with dress fittings. All of that trouble only for the groom to show up looking like he’s about to hang out with his homies!
Do You Take Errr…
We can never stress this enough. It’s the bride and groom’s day. Do not do anything that will take the limelight off them. Do not get dressed in a floor-length gown, especially if it’s the same color as the bride’s dress…
…or you might risk the ire of some well-meaning guests who spill their glasses of wine on you. Consider yourself warned. And for the bride and groom, make sure to have aplenty stock of red wine. You don’t want anyone’s glasses running out.
Whose Side Are You Taking
We have never felt anger the way we have now. This bride has always felt like her stepmother upstaged her. We never took it seriously until we saw her stepmother wear this gown to our friend’s wedding. And what’s worse is that…
…her husband (the original poster’s biological father) didn’t reprimand his wife! While he thought his daughter looked absolutely beautiful, he enjoyed the fact that his wife drew equal attention to his daughter’s special day. Whose side is he really on?
No Witchcraft, Please
Here is another absolute no-no. Some guests nearly suffered a heart attack blocking the incantations this little girl was muttering mid-seance. She claims the bride’s maternal aunts wanted to give their blessing, too, which is why she tried to communicate with them. Guess what the bride did.
She blew all the candles and then ushered this girl back to her seat. Not only was that a fire risk, but the last thing anyone wanted was a possession mid-way the festivities. There are enough drunks as is, honey.
You Have Our Prayers
This bride and groom might have been meaning well, but if they didn’t want to invite people to their wedding, why didn’t they just leave it at that? Don’t call them. Don’t inform them. And don’t send out an explicit invite like this one.
We would be equally tempted to say, “you have our prayers. Best of luck on your marital sojourn. We’ll see you in the office first thing on Monday.” Does this invitation scream loser or what? It belongs in the trash.
Too Late to Back Out
This couple had heard rave reviews about this wedding coordinator. They had to have her for their wedding. Fortunately, they were able to secure her services, but they regretted it not long after guests started complaining about this lengthy directive.
Seramony? There’s usually auto-correct on a quality phone. Second, the couple does not need to be treated as if they were in a fishbowl. Let them interact with the guests! And while we applaud this organizer for telling people to refrain from using their phones, she could have phrased it discreetly.
