6. Stuck on you
Sometimes love is so unexpected it gives you whiplash.
Other times you get it because your veil gets caught on the rustic wood of your wedding venue and snaps your head back with it.
That’s quite a memorable walk down the aisle!

See, the bride is smart. She’s drinking coffee.
At least she’ll always remember that special time the groom fell asleep on her during the wedding.
We bet the wedding night was rockin’.

We hope the look caught on her face doesn’t indicate how much pain she’s in after getting dropped.
We also hope they took their photos before there were grass stains all over her dress.

This poor bride had her mouth dyed blue after her brother gave her a “mint” before the ceremony.

Even if you like squirrels, your wedding day is not the time to have one want to play with you.
Or land on you.
Or scratch your shoulder in your sleeveless dress during your photos.

Falling is always embarassing.
But it’s epically embarassing when it happens as you descend the stairs for the first time as husband and wife.

Well, maybe there were some beautiful photos before this happened.
And as long as the ceremony took place, you can always “dance and dry” during the ceremony.
We’re trying to look on the bright side here because this looks like a nightmare.
Source: donaldsextonphotography/Instagram 13. It’s tough to wear white
It’s hard to keep a white dress clean. It’s even harder when people keep spilling (or spitting!) their drinks on you.
We can tell by this bride’s body language in the photo that she could have really used a hug right then and there.
Source: @ellenpaige/Twitter 14. Maid of dishonor
People should really have to pass a breathalyzer test before they make wedding speeches.
We hope this friend was appropriately mortified once she sobered up because no one else in that photo looks like they’re having a good time.
Source: @briana_holly/Twitter 15. The risk you take
Buying a wedding dress online is risky business.
We could do a whole slide show dedicated to Internet dress fails, but instead we’ll show you a few of our favorites.
This one is particularly bad because it looks like she was dressed in toilet paper and THEN got attacked by dogs.
Source: Brides Beware/Facebook 16. We hope there was a backup
That moment when you get the dress of your dreams and instead of a top it has pasties.
Maybe the skirt could be salvaged?
Source: Brides Beware/Facebook 17. Not even the color?!
Well, we have to say that if the dress wasn’t two different sizes on the top and bottom and GREEN to top it off, it might actually look pretty similar to the one in the photo.
Source: @rozlyn_cole/Twitter 18. Nailed it
This is like a Pinterest fail from Hell.
But it’s supposed to be a bridal gown.
Fingers crossed that this could be returned and there was enough time to find a real dress before the big day.
Source: @sup_clover/Instagram 19. In sickness and in health
Now, see, THIS ia a beautiful dress.
But it probably looks better when the bride isn’t face-down on the bathroom floor.
We’d probably wait to give her a hug in this case.
Source: @clintshane/Twitter 20. Piece of cake
Who decided that weddings should involve tall, delicate pastries, knives, and white dresses? It’s all a recipe for disaster.
In this case, we can’t help but feel bad for the bride who is watching her cake head for the floor.
Save the macarons!
Source: @noideportugal/Instagram 21. Tiers of tears
Really though, why do we balance pastry upon pastry and then expect it all not to fall over?
We bet this bride was wishing she had just ordered the cupcakes.
Source: @hubbee_weddings/Instagram 22. Together until the end (of the staircase)
The bride said there was no damage to the dress, but what about her skin and her pride?
Sounds like the groom needed a hug in this case too!
Source: @onkeylimetime/Twitter 23. Birds of a feather
We don’t know how much birdseed ended up in her mouth or eyes, but we do know we’d be pretty mad at whoever threw a bucket of it.
That’s one less person invited to the reception.
Source: @shays151/Twitter 24. A family affair
How incredibly rude is it to wear white to someone’s wedding?
In this case, we don’t think these sisters wanted another woman in the family. And it looks like they don’t deserve one.
Source: @graciedickinson/Twitter 25. Blackmail material
This bride had a bit too much to drink at her reception.
In fact, her guests were still downstairs at the bar!
Source: @jodiefus/Instagram 26. Not standing on ceremony
If we were this bride we’d be wondering if our new husband could hold up his end of the whole “til death do us part” deal if he can’t even make sure she got across the street ok.
We’re not sure why everyone is leaving this bride in the dust, but we hope she turned right around and found that open bar.
Source: @Louise_Cusak/Twitter 27. Blunder-in-law
This is why people elope.
Parents, when your kids have a wedding without you, it’s because they’ve probably seen things like this.
How do you even put a stop to this and regain control of your own wedding?
Source: @halfwrittensong/Twitter 28. Family matters
Your siblings probably aren’t trying to ruin your big day. And yet, somehow you manage to get dropped on the ground anyway.
The look on this bride’s face seems to say “I’m not surprised this is happening.”
Source: @haighteraide/Twitter 29. That’s love
Some embarassing wedding moments make you realize you married the right person. And then make you wonder how you’re related to others.
When this bride took a fall, her husband came to sit on the floor with her.
Then her brother happened
Source: @kme2of9/Twitter 30. Bride overboard
This poor bride!
Alas, her friend doesn’t seem terribly concerned that she’s about to fall backwards down a hillside!
Source: its.an.agentsl.life/Instagram 31. Cocktail fail
While the bride managed to get her dress clean after having a cocktail sink into it before the reception, we can tell by her stance in the photo on the left that she’s a bit worried.
Why do we wear white to these things again?
Source: shannonmcmillenphotography/Instagram 32. You had one job
This one can only be explained
by the bride herself:
“As soon as we left the church, the cops showed up. Limo driver ran a red light and unfortunately did not have a current license. Seriously? You’re a limo driver.”
Luckily, a groomsman had the proper license and convinced the “limo driver” to let him take the wheel.
Source: krich517/Instagram 33. Duct tape to the rescue
This bride dislocated her knee on her wedding night, but she still managed a smile.
Duct tape isn’t an ideal compliment to a wedding dress, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
Source: suburbanspunk 34. Swept up in it all
We hope the bride is laughing as hard as the groom underneath her dress.
If not, we imagine a lonely wedding night.
Source: Pinterest 35. A magical day
So much for that magestic unicorn-riding photoshoot.
These photos went viral for obvious reasons after a photographer kept shooting after the bride fell off her horse.
Luckily, she can now look back on it and laugh.
Source: Woman’s Day via Pinterest 36. Attack of the ankle biters
Well that’s one way to ruin a wedding dress.
Granted, they get dragged around during the recemony and reception and the bottom gets damaged anyway, but that’s usually at the end of the night. AFTER the photos.
Source: London Media vid The Daily Mail 37. Veiled emotions
Geez, people, be careful of the veil!
This poor bride looks like this snafu is tearing out her hair!
Source: Twitter 38. Waves of emotion
Getting married by a beautiful body of water?
Well, when disaster strikes – like a rogue wave – all you can do is hope your photographer keeps snapping photos so you get something epic out of it.
Source: NBC San Diego 39. Gone to the birds
It’s probably best not to involve any live animals in your wedding – it only adds extra stress.
In this case, these doves were MAD – and they acted accordingly towards the bride AND groom.
Source: Octuu/Imgur 40. What goes up…
If you’re bouncing around with your new wife in your arms you really need to make sure you have the appropriate upper body strength and aren’t just powered by an energy rush and a desire to show off.
Otherwise, things are going to get awkward.
Source: Screenshot via Funny Videos/YouTube 41. Fanning the flames of love
It seems like a bad sign to have your getaway car start on fire after the wedding (or any time during the wedding, for that matter.)
We wonder how much the dry cleaning bill will be when they need to get that smoky smell out of their clothing.
Source: Reddit 42. Bonkers bridesmaid
Well, we don’t know exactly who the bride is (and we’re sure she prefers it that way) but it appears she made a bad decision in choosing her maid of honor.
Once you start running people over, you’ve officially ruined someone’s wedding.
Source: Pirate_Redbeard/Reddit 43. Bridal blunder
Frankly, we’re surprised there’s more than one photo of a bride falling a horse out there.
But this is just more proof that big fluffy dresses and horses just don’t mix.
Source: Aquagenie/Reddit 44. DIY photographer
If you spend thousands of dollars on a photographer only to have some relative ruin a beautiful photo with their phone camera, it’s safe to say you need a hug.
But that’s probably just to hold you back from strangling them.
Source: danielsting/Reddit 45. Just pay attention
Yet another guest who thinks their epic wedding shot is more important than being respectful of the event.
This guest fell right through the flower hedges as the bride was walking down the aisle, which had to be cleaned up – and then the professional photos were probably ruined on that part of the aisle to boot.
Source: Teerendog/Reddit 46. Another territorial terror
Once again, we see just how much dogs hate weddings. It’s like they know that they’re favorite person’s attention is about to be divided from then on out.
Here we have yet another bride who is the victim of a territorial “marking.”
Source: dbsleptwrong4r/Reddit 47. Already?!
We can only hope REALLY hard that this is the father of the bride and not the groom playing grab ass with another woman on his wedding day.
Either way, this bride deserved better behavior.
Source: via The Stir 48. DIY dangers
This bride did all of the flowers herself – arches, corsages, and table ornaments! Unfortunately they were poisonous Lillies of the Valley.
She made it through the ceremony but had to immediately head off to the E.R. for an adrenaline shot before returning to the ceremony.
Sounds (and looks!) like a long, dramatic day. In the bad way.
Source: via Shared 49. What an Outkast
This is what it looks like when someone hits shuffle on your carefully-curated playlist and the song you were supposed to dance to with your dad, “Father And Daughter” by Paul Simon, doesn’t play.
Instead you get “Hey-Ya!” by Outkast.
Source: Shared 50. Send me a sign
It wasn’t until the next day that this bride noticed that her ceremony photos all had a giant STOP sign in the back of them.
But at least she had a good enough sense of humor to post them on Reddit.
Source: Reddit 51. Grand entrance
Imagine walking down the aisle on the most special day of your life and seeing your fiance looking at you like this.
To be fair, he had no idea that this was his “calm” face.
Maybe he should have stuck with his nervous face.
Source: @Patrick_Neville/Twitter 52. Flower girl fail
We hope this bride didn’t want a photo of the moment she and her husband exchanged vows or else she’ll have to do some major cropping.
Toddlers don’t quite understand why they can’t be the center of attention all the time.
Source: Abby Photography 53. In your face
People’s passive-agressive sides really come out at weddings.
We’d probably hit her back with our bouquet.
Source: @ianjweldon/Instagram 54. Blown away
No need to sweep this bride off her feet – the wind is already doing a good job of that.
We just hope she didn’t get too much lipstick on her veil.
Source: @ianjweldon/Instagram 55. Mother-in-law from Hell
This MIL was taken to task online for her totally creepy antics – which started with wearing a sheer white lace dress to her son’s wedding.
Then she tethered herself to the groom, even indulging in what guests referred to as a “creepy” dance in which her behavior resembled a bride more than a mother.
This poor bride does NOT look amused, judging by her body language.
Source: via The Daily Mail 56. Devoted to destruction
What is it with dogs and wedding dresses?
We’re not sure of the circumstances behind this photo, but we sure hope she and the dress were ok.
Source: swishtoday.com 57. Wedding crasher
In a truly bizarre incident that went viral, a Chinese groom’s ex-girlfriend showed up to his wedding and interrupted the couple’s first kiss.
She was wearing a wedding dress and threw herself at his feet begging him to take her back.
The groom was embarassed but the bride was mad enough to leave.
Source: via The Daily Mail 58. Dirty dress
All of her photos have now kindly been Photoshopped, but this mom was crestfallen when she realized her young special needs son defacated on her dress moments before the ceremony.
No amout of scrubbing could remove the stain OR the smell from her garment.
But the show goes on.

The night before your wedding you’re supposed to be pampering yourself – but not too much becaue you don’t want to aggravate your skin.
Unfortuantely, this bride got a huge mosquito bite right in the center of her forehead with hours to spare before prep time.
Source: @shalestagram/Instagram 60. The gift of glitter
This poor bride got glitter bombed by a “friend” on her way down the aisle.
We don’t know how on Earth she kept her composure after that since she’s probably still picking it out of her hair today.
Can we all just agree to elope at the courthouse now?
