These 80 Horrible Wedding Dresses Would Ruin Any Big Day

Some girls have begun mentally preparing their dream weddings long before they’ve hit puberty, and many know the kind of dresses they want before they’ve even met their grooms. So, when the big day finally arrives, there really shouldn’t be any excuse for making a mistake – and yet there’s no accounting for taste.

Here’s the first of these 80 wedding dresses that will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Yep, the pic features atrocious nuptial attire that was apparently painted onto the bride and groom. What would have happened if it had rained?

We’re not sure who had more difficulty breathing: the bride in her fairy princess dress, or the groom buried under layers of dress.

White wedding dresses traditionally signify the purity of the bride. This dress – what little there is of it – couldn’t have been any more at odds with that idea.

It’s like every Christmas came at once. In fact, this bride could have been the fairy on top of the tree – if her dress wasn’t as big as the tree itself.

It’s possible that this bride’s dress was once stunning, but it’s hard to tell underneath the gangsta-style graffiti.

This tree-decorated gown, worn by Honey Boo Boo’s mom June Shannon, was supposed to act as camouflage, unfortunately there wasn’t enough of it to disguise the monstrosity that it is. The neon flowers are pretty bad, too.

This statement-making dress was covered in hearts to signify the bride’s undying love for her groom-to-be – because, you know, a wedding wasn’t a big enough statement on its own.

There must have been a color theme to this wedding, but it’s hard to tell. Anyway, orange you so happy you saw such a sweet couple?

The bride and her limo seem to have been driven through a swamp in preparation for this wedding day. And the less said about the groom the better.

Perhaps if you stare at the sequins on this dress for long enough, a better garment will suddenly appear. Then again…

ADVERTISEMENT

Even the bride doesn’t look too sure about this one. Still, when your groom makes you a delicious dress out of 1,500 cream puffs, how can you say no?

ADVERTISEMENT

She was trying to hide, but sadly the world saw all too clearly this bride and her poor taste in camouflage wedding dresses.

ADVERTISEMENT

Perhaps it was the overwhelming volume of fabric making up this gown that meant the bride apparently needed two mean-looking escorts to help her down the aisle.

We’re not sure which is worse: the panel missing from the front of the gown, or the number of doves that may have been sacrificed for the feather adornment.

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and can’t tell where to find them… Oh, wait, she just sheared them and has worn their wool as a wedding dress.

Would it make you feel any better about this bizarre creation if we told you the whole thing was made almost entirely out of toilet paper? No? Thought not.

The Candice Gwinn Honey Dress is an affordable option for any bride-to-be. But it’s probably best to go for one without this country-style customization, which screams “square dance class” more than “wedding day.”

Even the groom here has no idea what this dress is supposed to be. But the bride seems to be enjoying it, and that’s the most important thing. Until she sees this photo in a year or so, perhaps.

Stephanie Watson spent a little less than $25 creating this dress from more than 10,000 bread bag ties. Her husband probably thought she looked good enough to eat – but then hopefully he came to his senses soon after.

This is what happens when you’re getting married to a clown. We’re joking, of course; even a clown wouldn’t stand for this.

It’s surely not a good indication of your future together if the Grim Reaper presides over your wedding. Though the “dress” is pretty grim too, so perhaps it was a theme thing.

Is this what strippers wear when they get married? They probably don’t want to feel too over-dressed.

The confederate flag has become so synonymous with racism that some states are proposing a ban on it. Perhaps that’s why no one showed up to this wedding.

Odd that the camo wedding dress isn’t even the worst thing about this couple’s wedding attire. With the addition of jeans and cowboy hat for the groom and shades for both, it’s clear that these guys are from the wrong side of the tracks.

This bride was inspired by the maxim that sometimes less is more. By combining a full gown and mini dress in one, on this occasion less is most definitely… less.
