Wedding season is thriving in all its vibrancy and glory, and social media is abuzz with a couple of wedding hashtags and dreamy pictures of fantastical weddings. And for the wedding guests, weddings are occasions for great fun, gallant displays of ever-lasting romance, and many embarrassing moments that will keep them giggling for the rest of their lives. To commemorate wedding season, talk show host Jimmy Fallon encouraged all of his followers to use the hashtag, #WeddingFail, to narrate all the embarrassing and bizarre wedding day tales encouraged throughout their lives. The Twitteratis in their droves responded with a unique fervor, and before we knew it, social media was buzzing with hilarious and mind-bogglingly bizarre tales of wedding day fails. Enjoy!
Twitter user Alex shared an endearing yet funny tale of how three grandmothers ended up wearing an identical blue dress to the wedding. While we can all understand their embarrassment at wearing similar dresses, it is difficult to deny how intensely adorable they look like a trio. Talk about unexpected twinning!
We can’t help but be impressed by how elegantly and charmingly they carried themselves and even agreed to take a picture together. Little did they know it would find its way to social media, paraded around for all to share their unexpected episode of identical dressing.
It’s only natural for dog lovers to want their precious furry friends to be an integral part of the bridal party, and this bride was certainly no different in this regard. However, she made the terrible error of dismissing the reasonable advice offered by her dog trainer, and her wedding turned out to be a loud howling competition between a pack of huskies.
This teaches us the important lesson of always trusting the advice of our dog trainers, and when it comes to a wedding, to be careful with the number of dogs that we choose to invite to our bridal affair — if at all.
Patrick, a groom, had the most hilarious tale to recall from his own wedding, where he managed to allow his guests a mirth-inducing moment of literally falling head over heels, with his wife in his arms. Poor Patrick only wanted to carry his wife in his arms and romantically walk out of the ceremony, like a knight in shining armor.
However, it is evident that Patrick hadn’t been hitting the gym for a long, long time. Hence, instead of carrying his blushing bride out of the ceremony, he managed to make a great fall and land the lady unceremoniously on the ground.
Let’s be real for a second here: how many of you brides have been worried, no, terrified, that you will end up tripping over your flouncy dress? It’s a reasonable enough concern — and here’s what it looks like when it actually happens.
We’re sure that the bride and groom will also remember it for all eternity. Weddings can quickly turn into disasters, especially if the groom manages to rip his pants and the bride lands on her face, but it is always a choice to laugh off that moment and enjoy the rest of the evening without pondering one’s embarrassment.
This guy had been entrusted by the groom with the greatest diplomatic challenge of giving the best man’s speech. It was his friend’s second wedding, a precarious affair, as all the guests are undoubtedly gossiping about the failure of the first marriage, and memories of the events thrown to commemorate it.
Well, the best man certainly didn’t help matters by starting the speech with “Welcome back”. We strongly hope that the guests around him had the decency to throw in a laugh to reduce the discomfort of the groom and his newly wedded wife.
Walking down the aisle in an elaborate wedding gown is certainly the most precious moment for any bride and groom. It is a moment prevalently preserved in pictures, videos, and our memories. However, if this poignant moment is ruined, it can lay waste to a great deal of wealth spent on photographers, dresses, decorations, and a great deal more.
This groom certainly had an embarrassing tale to tell, and we cannot help but think about the thoughts in his mind, which compelled him to make such an anxiety-ridden face. Perhaps he suffers from an acute case of resting terrified face?
Dianne, a gorgeous bride, had the most hilarious tale to tell, and we are awed by her candid admission and adorable photograph that preserved the memory. It is natural for brides to feel nervous jitters as they walk down the aisle. It is also natural to ask for chewing gums or mint to calm one’s nerves.
Dianne’s brother, Peter, who was walking down the aisle, offered her to have some mint, but he certainly wasn’t doing his sister any favors. The mint turned her tongue into a striking blue. Certainly a sight to remember for the groom!
We are all aware that beachside weddings come with a plethora of challenges, but who would have thought that an entire flock of seagulls could also make it to the list? Clearly, wedding planning is a feat in and of itself, and anything could go wrong at any point.
We cannot imagine the embarrassment of the poor mother of the bride, who became the recipient of a fish head, unceremoniously dropped by a seagull. But we’re always in favor of at least trying to look on the bright side of life: at least it was a fish, and not poop?
This poor wedding guest spent her entire time in the bathroom, cleaning her dress and getting it blow-dried before returning back to the bridal party. Her dress was soiled, not once but twice, and in the most hilarious of manners.
We wonder how she managed to get those awfully stubborn stains out of the elaborate silk gown. Someone should ask what detergent or washing product she used! Her touch-up team seem tickled, but we can’t see what look she’s wearing on her own face.
While wedding fires are hardly funny enough to make us crack up, this one certainly is. Here’s the tale of an unfortunate bride who managed to burn her wedding dress train. It pains us to even think about a burning wedding dress, and all the effort and money, not to mention the dreams, that went into its designing and creation.
Nevertheless, the tale ends on a happy note as the elegant bride managed to swallow this hiccup with pride and confidence. The DJ certainly helped lighten up the scene with his remarkable choice of music! This is probably not the scenario Alicia Keys had in mind when she wrote the song.
If we take into account the number of clothing fails and ripped pants that take place at weddings, we probably wouldn’t be inclined to spend a great deal of money on wedding outfits. Take, for example, this story of a passionate dancer who lost himself on the dance floor, and managed to rip his pants from the most peculiar place imaginable.
We can’t help but wonder, did this embarrassing incident compel him to go back to his seat or did he continue rocking the dance floor for the rest of the night? Whatever the case, he seems totally committed to nailing that Cossack jump!
What could possibly be more luxurious than a weeklong stay in a gorgeous honeymoon suite without having to pay a single dime for the opulence? Sounds terrific, right? It may be hard to believe, but it actually happened for this lucky couple.
That being said, it does come at the price of having to suffer the awkwardness of finding fraudsters thrashing around in your bed on your wedding night. But if it leads to an ending as happy as this one, what’s the harm? You know what they say, there’s always a silver lining!
The elderly are also cause for hilarious drama and fun memories, and this memory is so endearing it warmed our hearts. The bride and groom managed to land on the floor in their bid to save the groom’s grandma from falling, and the photographer found the perfect moment to click an unforgettable picture.
Falling certainly seems to be the best strategy to make one’s wedding unforgettable and save up some mirth-inducing memories that would certainly entertain our children for years to come. And, if it’s in the service of making sure your loved one doesn’t get hurt, then by all means, go for it!
Just before we thought the wedding fails couldn’t get any funnier, we were struck with this priceless gem. This tale reminds us precisely how important it is to avoid rushing through our styling and readying rituals, and to give proper time to each and every chore.
Holy heck what a mistake! Despite the mishap, this remains a warming memory that allowed the wedding couple to cherish a story as funny as this one. Temporary blindness or not, weddings don’t always go as planned, and whatever may be the outcome, the key is to find a way to enjoy the precious moments of our big day!
There’s a first time for everything, and for this young woman, her first time getting tipsy happened purely by accident — or at least, you have to hope it was an accident! You have to wonder why she didn’t notice her lemonade tasted a bit off.
Now, we admit that spiking a 12-year old’s drink and plying her with alcohol certainly warrants a serious reprimanding, but come to think of it, the bride’s sister certainly must have made some unforgettable memories. At least from the way she tells it, it doesn’t sound like she got up to too much mischief.
A wedding day is the bride’s big moment, and it is all about her beauty, her exquisite wedding gown, and her romantic love story. No one, and by that we mean not a single person in the world, is allowed to steal the bride’s thunder.
Now, wearing a white dress to a wedding is most certainly among the worst things a woman can possibly do to the bride, and wearing a white lace dress is a sin so unforgivable that it would even make the angels cry.
Here’s a dramatic tale of romance and chance that had us gushing more than laughing, and reminded us of the fact that love finds us all in unusual places in the most unusual of moments. Remember the importance of listening the best man when it comes to advice about the groom!
Well, this bride certainly didn’t listen and ended up marrying the wrong guy, only to get a divorce and do it all over again. How many of us thought such tales only take place in movies? All’s well that ends well, no?
As if a beach wedding weren’t challenging enough, it turns out that there’s another unconventional wedding venue that perhaps offers even larger challenges. Farm weddings are certainly no easier feat either. You see, the thing about choosing an outdoor location is that it eliminates your ability to control your wedding event, and the external factors that could rain on your parade.
Look at this story for instance. How could the bride and groom possibly have imagined that a poor cow’s childbirth ordeal would steal their thunder, turning their wedding into a truly rustic experience. We don’t know what that sounds like, and we’re not too keen on finding out.
No matter how you feel about your relative’s nuptials, make sure that at their wedding, you maintain at the minimum a neutral expression at all times. Who knows, the wedding photographer might be a lot closer than you think — and might reveal a few things about your feelings.
This sister-in-law simply couldn’t stop her cringe-worthy expression as her brother get up to kiss his new wife. The photographer snapped the perfect moment to depict the scene, and we seriously wonder how her relationship progressed with her brother’s wife after this picture surfaced in the wedding album.
This bride certainly had an absolutely ridiculous tale to tell about her maid of honor, and we can’t help but feel sorry for the girl, in between fits of laughter of course. Maids of honor have a prestigious post in the bridal party, which warrants them to be elegant and ever-watchful for the possibility of blunders.
But there’s always that one maid of honor who doesn’t quite understand the job description. This one wanted to dance the night away, only to end up with the lifelong trauma of having her bosom paraded for all the guests to see. Smooth!
When selecting a figure of your faith to conduct your wedding vows, it is important to make instructions about his demeanor and conduct. A sleeping priest is certainly no good to the bridal couple, especially if he is going to sleep his way through the mass and end up mispronouncing the bride’s name.
Perhaps, this teaches us a lesson to make clear directives about urging our chosen priests to mind their sleeping hours, so they don’t end up snoozing during our wedding ceremonies. Hey, we’re getting married over here! Catch some shut-eye on your own time!
Mothers-in-law are notorious for leaving no stone unturned in making the lives of their daughter-in-laws a living hell. But this MIL certainly took treachery to a whole new level of competitiveness. On the bride’s wedding day, she stole her son’s newly wedded wife’s thunder by wearing an almost identical white dress to the ceremony.
That’s a power move if we ever saw one. Could anything possibly be nastier than this betrayal? Oh well, the daughter-in-law certainly seems to have taken her revenge by sharing this act of treachery for the entire world to see. Well played, Amy!
Talk about the burden of satisfying our parents with our life choices and feeling stifled under the weight of their expectations. Sometimes, our parents are less than thrilled with our choice of partners, but they manage to keep their feelings under wraps. And then there’s this guy.
This annoyed father certainly left no stone unturned in making his newly wedded daughter-in-law feel unwelcomed, and no less, in front of hundreds of guests. We cannot imagine the feelings of the wedding couple, but we can certainly share a laugh or two at their expense.
It appears that finding the right priest to help officiate one’s wedding vows is no easy feat, even though it seems like the easiest part of wedding planning. This reminds us all to make sure we familiarize ourselves with the priest rather than waiting for the wedding ceremony.
But the thing is, unwittingly, from their response to the whole thing, it looks as though their choice in priests ended up being the best option possible. At least they were able to turn their big day into an absolute laugh riot that they’ll remember and cherish for the rest of their days.
Clearly, weddings are certainly not the best occasions to invite a troupe of Mexican indigenous dancers, regardless of how fascinating their costumes and dance performances may be. You see, the wedding day is all about the bride and the groom, and you’d better not dare steal their thunder.
Here’s a reminder to all, jokes aside: never take up the task of planning someone else’s wedding for them. Wait for your own wedding, and if your own wedding passed decades ago, then, well, your wedding planning days are clearly behind you!
Now here’s a valuable lesson on why ex-girlfriends and boyfriends should never be invited to one’s wedding ceremony, especially if love letters have been exchanged, alongside promises of undying love. If you know that your ex-girlfriend still hasn’t moved on, inviting her to your wedding is a disaster waiting to happen, and you have no one to blame but yourself.
If there’s a paper trail, proceed with caution. We cannot help but picture the giggles that must have erupted among the guests as this young lady read letter after letter, regaling the newly wedded bride of her husband’s past romances.
Who doesn’t love hot dogs? No matter what, they most probably don’t make the best food staple to feet a wedding party. And yet, this father thought it fit to make a savvy investment by serving $200 worth of hotdogs, fresh out of a $300 fridge. It reminds us never to entrust anyone else with the important wedding-planning tasks that can make or break the event.
There are three reasons guests come to the wedding, beyond wanting to see you, of course: food, open bar, and music. If you deny any of these three, the purpose of attending a wedding is utterly and completely lost. Raise your hands if you agree!
Now here’s an important lesson for the ladies: be sure to never ever pick out wedding-appropriate evening dresses from online shops. First of all, we’ve all seen online shopping fails where the product can be vastly, if not comically, different than advertised.
But beyond the obvious, there’s another big risk. These dresses are highly likely to be worn by at least one or two other guests that you see at the wedding. It may seem like a fabulous bargain, but only until you see someone else flaunting it as well.
It appears that falling during weddings is the hip new trend for bridal parties, and we are certainly loving it. However, spiraling down a grand staircase is bound to be painful and excruciatingly uncomfortable. Needless to say, brides and grooms need to be much more careful about their attire and watching out where they step.
However, we have to admit, stories of these memorable falls seem to just end up making wedding ceremonies all the more cherished and fun. These are memories that enrich our lives for years to come, allowing us a moment to share a laugh even during the most dreadful of times.
This rather dramatic tale of legal troubles reminds us of bitterly divorces can play out and how fights between parents can impact the lives of their children. This mother of the bride saw it fit to catch her husband in a tight spot by delivering him a subpoena during her daughter’s wedding.
It’s essentially the nightmare scenario that anyone getting married and fretting over inviting their estranged parents would pray to not have happen. Perhaps, this mom was tired of chasing him and saw it fit to utilize the perfect opportunity that he wouldn’t be able to avoid.
