Ring those wedding bells loud and clear, because here they come – the most embarrassing special day moments of the year! From awkward family photos to cakes that will make you gasp, we’ve got them all.
Piece Of Cake
It probably would have been a good idea to cut back on the wine before attempting to cut the cake worth hundreds of dollars in the middle. At least the bride seems somewhat amused by this whole devastating situation… The same cannot be said about the groom.
Cry Me A River
Marriage, to some, is a slippery slope. You never quite know what you are signing up for, but you hope the best and take a leap forward, trusting your significant other will catch you if you fall. This couple wanted nothing more than to have their whole wedding party in on a photo on the lake, but the dock could not hold all the excess weight and crumbled right beneath their feet, creating this epic moment they will never forget.
It is a good thing they say weddings are the ideal places to meet someone new because we feel bad for the poor guy, who is clearly feeling left out of all the love. It is tough not having that special someone in your life when all you ever wanted was to start a joint life together with your other half, but we are positive a guy with a great sense of humor like that will find someone very soon.
Regretting That Decision
Setting doves free after a wedding ceremony is a well-known tradition. A Touch Above explains the phenomenon with the following message: “The Symbolism of a White Dove Release: […] doves are pure white. This represents the bride and groom as they begin their life’s journey together in purity and with no regrets of their past.” The guy in the picture below probably got a special present from the dove on his hand, which explains the mortified look on his face.
Portable Pillow Bride
The poor groom in the picture below was probably so invested in the wedding preparations (as per his wife’s request) that he simply could not take it anymore and drifted into a deep slumber mid-toast. It is a good thing his considerate bride does not mind the drool on her flashy gown, since it seems like her man desperately needed to shut his eyes, even if for a quick snooze. Perhaps when she’s done acting as his portable pillow she should offer him a sip of her coffee.
We Go Down Together
It is hard not to itch an itch, especially when you are wearing a dress that is made of a fabric that constantly rubs against your body and the friction brings along an unexpected wedgie. These two bridesmaids did their best to resist the uncomfortable feeling of their undergarments climbing into their behinds, but at the end agreed to pick it out at the same time. They reasoned amongst themselves that if they go down, they go down together.
The whole idea behind the concept of wedding photo shoots is that the magical moment before the “I do” is captured. The couple looks endearingly into each other’s eyes and the two lock hands as though they are never letting go – it is mesmerizing. These newlyweds wanted to state their love for one another by reenacting the saying: “there are lots of fish in the sea,” but personalizing it with their own addition of, “but I choose you.” Unfortunately, the end result is quite alarming.
This probably ended up being the quickest divorce in the history of mankind. It is a good thing a big church or highly expensive venue was not booked for the occasion, as it is would have been a shame to see all that money and effort go to waste. The groom could not keep his hands to himself less than 5 minutes after vowing to love the woman by his side, so it is safe to say this marriage was not a promising one from the start.
Prank With A Plank
Many things escape our understanding when it comes to social trends and the millennial generation, but the concepts that truly leave us feeling utterly perplexed are those that even when explained do not make any sense. The act of planking, for example, can be seen in the background of the picture below. Planking means mimicking a wooden plank by lying flat on a random surface. While highly evident on various social media platforms, we would not expect anyone to imitate a wooden plank during a wedding ceremony.
At Least They Aren’t In Red
‘Til death do us part might come a little quicker than these two lovebirds originally hoped. While we are positive the notion of having a majestic bull in their romantic, sunset stricken photoshoot seemed like a good idea at the time, the wild beast was not about to be tamed or act in a manner different than its natural behavior toward the nervous couple standing by its side. In retrospect, perhaps a more forgiving animal could have been used, like a puppy.
Runs In The Family
Breaking up is tough, especially because it means you lose someone who was a big part of your life. They say the best way of getting over someone is cutting them out of your life completely – but what if you can’t? This poor girl assumed the announced separation from her boyfriend would mean her mother would act as the crying shoulder she needed, but got a big slap across the face from reality as her mom announced her beau moved on with someone new – and that someone was her.
Good Enough To Eat
Unlike the classic three tier white wedding cake with figurines of the married couple on top, this cake takes the personalized dessert game to a whole other level. Maybe the beaming bride wanted to people to tell her that she tastes as delicious as she looks, or perhaps this was her way of eating her heart out. Be it as it may, the new husband looks somewhat disturbed to have to slice himself a piece of it.
The Naked Truth
Instead of having to fuss over what to wear to your best friend’s wedding, why not go in the best suit you own – your birthday suit? All jokes aside, this flock of femmes were not nude in church, they simply had strapless gowns on. Because of the high bench backs, the illusion that they are in the buff is very strong, but the truth is much less steamy. Still, we can only imagine the groomsmen’s faces in the back.
Enough Is Enough
Naomi had quite enough of her boyfriend’s silly proposals. After dropping the ball on their relationship and stating she felt as though the two of them were stuck in the same place without as much as a promise to share their lives together, Nick understood he needed to do something and quick if he didn’t want to lose the love of his life. The first time he proposed to her was in a McDonald’s, but Naomi was outraged with the lack of thought he put in. Then came this graffiti…
Not If I Can Help It
Tradition states that when a bride throws the bouquet, the person who catches it will be the next one to walk down the aisle. Because of this, many women are desperate to land their hands on the flower arrangement. Philip here overheard his girlfriend talking about how she plans on grabbing the bouquet no matter what, but since he does’nt feel ready to tie himself down to one woman, he formed a plan of his own – to jump straight into the raging crowd and block that bouquet from his soon to be unhappy girl.
Blinded By Love
With her best intentions at heart, this girl asked former Duke Blue Devils basketball player Brian Zoubek to marry her. Although we find it hard to believe she actually thought the superstar would read her sign, toss the ball away and yell “yes!” excitedly, the least she could have done is make sure her sign is the right side up. Here’s hoping that those who really propose pay closer attention to detail, or at least make sure their sign is readable.
It’s All Relative
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one is worth about a million. The look on the groom’s face when he looks at his mother in law is incredible, as though he just realized for the first time what his wife is going to be like in 30 years. Let’s just hope his pure look of disgust is because of something she said and not the sudden acknowledgment that marrying his girlfriend meant marrying her family, too.
Comfort Is Key
Ever pop into a local general store to grab a couple of beers and wondered to yourself, “hey, why don’t I grab a wedding dress while I’m at it?” the store manager of Hussey’s clearly thought so, or at least wanted to fulfill his dream of opening a business that could offer you just about anything you want. We doubt Vera Wang dresses will be found in a store such as this, but at the right price, maybe you could spot a decent gown.
Step Father Situation
Every girl dreams of the day she will walk down the aisle in the perfect gown and have her father look into her eyes as he wipes away a single tear streaming down his face, knowing it was time to give her away. That moment is emotional, it is no surprise many get caught up in the moment – and consequently, tumble down. The father in this picture did just that, but at least he made parting a lot easier!
Raise The Roof
“Raise The Roof” could have been playing while this groom was thrown into the air, but it does not seem as though literally making him touch the roof was mandatory. Clearly, spirits were high in the midst of the celebration of these two souls becoming one, which could explain why no one seems that alarmed to see the man of the hour defying the laws of gravity. As long as no one got hurt, we are glad the occasion was properly celebrated.
It seems as though this couple was jumping the gun a bit, on account of the fact babies are usually the ones to follow the wedding and not vice versa. Times have definitely changed and social norms that were accepted in the past are no longer mandatory rules of conduct, but technology has only gone too far and as far as we are aware, men are still incapable of bringing children into the world. One thing’s for sure – these two don’t need to get their funny bone checked…
Love Is In The Air
Dogs owners see their pups as more than lovable house pets – they see them as a valuable and inseparable part of their family. For this reason, it only makes sense they would not be left out on a day of great significance, like his owners’ wedding. Sometimes, dogs are even granted a role in the ceremony, such as acting as the ring bearer. These dogs were especially feeling the love on this special day, which is probably why they couldn’t keep their paws off each other.
The Haunted Aisle
This gory wedding cake might have been used for a wedding that was Halloween themed, but that does not mean it is appetizing by any means. It is hard to think of a couple who would want this served to their guests on their supposedly romantic day, but this could have also been a prank or a dare. The gruesome cake could also be the result of a depressed baker who recently went through a bad breakup and this was her way of expressing her pain.
Auto Text, Auto Regret
When Sarah went to text her best friend and announce that her longtime boyfriend, Cole, and she were engaged, she was far too excited to proofread the message. Before Sarah had the chance to correct her the mistype, her friend set the truth free about how she really felt towards Cole – which proved to be the last thing Sarah would have even imagined. At least she was willing to be a supportive friend right until the very end…
Joke’s On Who?
Before we jump into any conclusions and assume the groom was at fault for making that little flower girl scrape the floor, it is better to think of other reason for why she fell down with such grace. Perhaps she slipped on her dress, or suddenly lost her balance? We can’t help but spot that ridiculously huge smirk on the groom’s face. If he was the one who shoved her a bit too strongly aside, we hope this couple wasn’t planning on bringing children into the world.
Weddings can be very expensive, especially when deciding to spend money uncontrollably on account of it being a once in a lifetime event. Those who rather save their hard earned cash on something else end up having to settle for lesser known brands and businesses, just as the couple who had this cake made did. Instead of following through on the instructions, the baker just wrote down everything that was jotted: “congratulations, under neat that ‘on your wedding’ in green.” Spelling errors were not lacking either.
Jingle Bells, Wedding Bells
When Christmas time comes by, it seems nothing remains untouched by the holiday spirits. From themed Starbucks coffee drinks to festive sweaters at big clothing brands, it is all about the Ho Ho Hos and mistletoes. This guy wanted to propose to his girlfriend during the most romantic season of the year but ended up having Santa Claus fever. “Jingle Bells” was probably stuck in his head on repeat, which is why he misspelled the rose petal-made message that he so carefully laid on the bed.
You spend months preparing for an event that only lasts about 5-6 hours, but its emotional importance makes every penny spent and tear wept a worth one. This bride was probably starving herself in the months leading up to her magical day and wanted nothing more than to comfortably and effortlessly squeeze into the dress of her dreams. That is why when her brand new husband offered her a piece of their wedding cake, there was no stopping her from taking that bite.
Blue With Moo
If you have seen the film 27 Dresses (and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you definitely have), you know that while brides are obsessed with looking their absolute best on their special day, they also have a hidden agenda – making their bridesmaids look as ridiculous as they can so that they don’t outshine them. This bride, however, went a little too overboard with the cow costumes, and it seems as though her friends were not so appreciative of the joke she played either.
Don’t Be Chicken
It is scary to take that leap and tie the knot with someone, stand in a room full of the people you love and declare that finally – this is it. You found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. If you’ve been hit by sheer dumb luck, your significant other is one who compliments you in every way and goes along with the crazy ideas you have, just as the couple in the picture below have.
