Loony Balloony

Who would have thought that a perfectly normal woman like her would pick a dress like this one? That balloon necklace is the icing on top! The thing about this dress is that she cannot even sit down in it. We hope she was ready to stand all day.

A Bit Much

This bride wanted to have a wedding day for the history books. We daresay that she succeeded. She was able to make it memorable by having a train so long that all the guests had to help with holding it.

Talk About A Throwback

There is nothing quite like dressing up during the ‘90s. The ladies in the photo clearly adore that era with its furry and sparkly materials. Yup, this is not like the weddings you have attended in the past, folks.

From Rags To Rags

The couple was about to fall off the planet when the photo was taken. We are just kidding, of course. We daresay that the groom looks rather shocked. Maybe he realized that she is wearing actual rags!

White Is Out

Wedding gowns are typically white, but you can also mix it up if you want to. The lack of color can get dull really quickly. These folks decide to jazz it all up by throwing in more color! How cool is that?

Shrek And Fiona In Real Life

Aww, look at all the cuteness in this photo. It is truly unorthodox, isn’t it? Fiona and Shrek are truly goals, but we do not like the real-life version all that much. If it makes them happy, it’s all good.

Cacti And Wedding Gowns

As of late, cacti have become super popular among the members of this generation. However, we do not know if like this one. It is truly way too far. Remember, a unique dress is not always a good thing.

Yep, this is a list that celebrates people who did not want to use traditional wedding attire. This lady was totally fierce, and she wanted all of us to know about it. The white dress looks normal until you see it.

For The Children

Who would have thought that there would be so many special weddings? This mom has kids and wanted the little ones to be a part of the big day. What a special and thoughtful wedding dress.

Gangster Groom And Bride

Just because they are gangsters does not mean that they do not care about true love. At any rate, they wanted to stay true to themselves. This explains why they spray-painted their clothes. Cool, right?

A Shotgun Wedding

Shotgun weddings happen all the time, but this is not it. The bride seems unhappy in this photo, and that bouquet is the single sign of celebration here. We do not like the way her dad has a shotgun here!

Punk Rock Proposal

Just so you know, punk rock is a lifestyle and not just a genre. The bride did not just opt out of the typical setup but made things even better. We wonder how the priest felt after seeing her horns.

Piece Of Cake

Wow, what a practical bride. Weddings can get super busy and crowded, so she wanted a useful wedding dress. Do you want cake? All you need to do is to go to the bride and ask for a slice of it.

No question, she must be a huge Christmas fan. She wanted everyone to know that this is the best time of the year for her. If you want a December wedding, feel free to do the same thing that this bride did.

Getting Buzzed With The Bride

Lots of people pick their wedding dresses for their appearance. For her, it is more important to consider function and not form. She decided to serve as the wine rack on the big day. Serve it up, lady!

Fussy Frills

For many people out there, the frills and ruffles make the wedding gown. This woman, however, did it all wrong. She thought that she could not go wrong with piling it up. Clearly, she was wrong about this.

Her Inner Child

She sure looks like a Barbie doll, doesn’t she? We do not think that it was a coincidence whatsoever. She must be a kid-at-heart. If you ask us, the photo takes us on a walk down memory lane. Ah, nostalgia.

A Walking Cupcake Tower

There is a good chance that she is related to the wine rack girl. What other explanation is there, after all? This is truly a good idea if you want to save more money on your wedding. No need for servers!

Animal Lover

Brides and grooms often coordinate their wedding attire. Bridesmaids tend to have similar outfits too. Well, this woman was like no other. She instead twinned with a sheep! It’s a pretty cool idea, to be fair.

Pretty In Pink

Weddings do not have to be black and white. There is no way you can mess it up by adding color. The Pink Lady here subscribes to this idea. How do you feel about the fishtail train, her hat, and the glitter?

Casual But Classy

It is important that you and your partner discuss everything about the wedding. They could not decide on whether to go casual or classy, so they simply did both. They only wanted to stay true to themselves.

Cut For Comfort

Comfort is super underrated when you pick out your wedding dress. It is hard to achieve that when a baby is on the way, sadly. This woman knew better than to forsake her comfort and did this to her dress.

Getting Hitched With A Landlubber

Go overboard if you are going with a pirate-themed wedding. The landlubbers in the photo clearly agree with that. We like the outfit the bride is wearing. The sideways hat and corset dress are simply perfect!

It is not unusual to hear of couples getting married in a different place. This bride was headed for the tropics and knew mosquitos would be an issue. That was how she came up with the idea for this dress!

A metallic accent can make a world of difference, but she did not only stop there. She added in rhinestone for a touch of color too! It is truly strange and captivating at the same time. Not bad at all!

Nowadays, you can have any wedding gown you have in mind. You will always find someone to make it for you. However, think long and hard about the theme and color. This looks way too somber to us.

Orange Camouflage For The Outdoors

She might be smiling, but she is sporting a dress that very few people would willingly put on. The beads and spots make it a very unusual choice! If you want to do an outdoor wedding ceremony, this isn’t it.

Balloon Lady Three

Well, it seems like we have severely underestimated how popular balloons are. She decided to take it up a notch by wearing this racy red dress with its high slit. She topped it off with sky-high heels as well.

Country Girl Bride

She was clearly not interested in minimalism, that’s for sure. There were six hidden seams added to make her look like she was floating. The cowboy boots, frills, flounces, and flowers are way too much for us.

Wow, what a smashing dress! We love the effects lent by the fairly lights, but is it really a smart idea to put them so near to your delicate areas? They look festive, but we would not risk an electrical short.

She managed to put card symbols on the wedding gown, but we wonder if it was worth it. There are spades, clubs, diamonds, and hearts all over her dress. She is down to play any game you have in mind!
