When it’s time to walk down the aisle, you will commonly find the bride and groom wearing something traditional. Despite this, there are folks who would rather don something unconventional on what is supposed to be the happiest days of their lives. Did it work for them? See for yourself…
Now, what could this woman have been thinking when she picked this outfit to be her wedding dress? She looks like an upstanding and respectable person, so we don’t know what she had in mind. Maybe her groom is actually a clown? At any rate, what we do know is that she should be prepared to stand up for the entire day and avoid sharp objects. After all, those are two ways to literally burst her bubble!
A Bit Much
There are many ways to make the wedding day something to remember for the rest of your life. This bride set out to do just that. We doubt that the guests will ever forget about it either! After all, they had been the ones to hold up the very long train of her gown. We’re glad they were willing to do it for her.
Talk About A Throwback
We cannot think of a decade that had as much fun fashion as the ‘90s did. This was the best time for dressing up and these ladies knew it! We love the fact that they brought back the fur and sparkles. What makes it even more amazing is that all the bridesmaids knew their places very well.
Not That Kind Of Cat Woman
We all liked Hello Kitty when we were little kids, but this woman clearly never outgrew it. She loves the character to this day! As a matter of fact, she did not hesitate to incorporate it into her big day…
From Rags To Rags
This is definitely a bad wedding dress, and we are sure that the groom agrees with us on this. That face tells us everything we need to know about how he feels about this. It is rags to riches, not riches to rags!
Just Like A Fairytale
Many little girls will tell you that they want a wedding that looks like something out of a fairytale. Most forget they even said this when they were little, but she made sure to make her dreams come true.
A Dress Worth $235,000
The two of them did not want to skimp on their big day. Evka, 19 years old at the time, wanted to make sure her wedding day was as extravagant as possible. She definitely did that!
White Is Out
This bride decided that she was not going to have a dull white wedding dress! She spiced things up by giving it her own twist. We quite liked all the color and frills she decided to use here.
Shrek And Fiona In Real Life
This is an adorable photo, even though it is pretty unorthodox. We personally would not want to do this for our wedding day, but we are glad that they are having a blast cosplaying Fiona and Shrek here.
Cacti And Wedding Gowns
A lot of people have fallen in love with cacti recently. This bride decided to express her feelings in a different way. She went a little overboard, however. Unique is not always a great thing, folks!
Throwing Out Tradition
Talk about guts! This couple decided to make their views be heard. They rocked outfits with a black base and rainbow accents to express their views. This is one way to make a stand! We love it.
Too Lit To Get Married
As you can see, this list is all about brides who decided to take the non-traditional path when it comes to their big day. This bride was one fiery gal, and it was only natural for her wedding dress to reflect that.
For The Children
You see, people have unconventional wedding dress ideas up their sleeves. If you have kids, you will want them to play a part in your wedding. We don’t know how we feel about that material, however…
Gangster Groom And Bride
Mind you, gangsters are soldiers of true love as well! The bride and the groom wanted to jazz things up, so they spray-painted their ‘fits! To be fair, this is a good way to combine street style and tradition.
A Shotgun Wedding
It is not as if the concept of a shotgun wedding is anything new. However, it doesn’t seem like the father knows what the term actually means. This actually looks like a pretty terrifying ritual is ongoing!
Punk Rock Proposal
Mind you, punk rock is not only a music genre but a lifestyle! This bride was not a traditional girl, so she decided to make it more her style. We cannot imagine how the priest must have reacted to her horns!
Piece Of Cake
She is definitely one practical person. She was well-aware of just how busy weddings can get. She decided there was nothing better to do than to hit two birds with one stone. Approach her for cake!
Most people like holidays in general, but this woman loved Christmas than most people do. She decided to express her holiday cheer by donning this dress. This is a great idea if your wedding is in December!
Getting Buzzed With The Bride
Nearly everyone picks their wedding dress for the way they look. She was a practical bride who decided she was just going to pick something multipurpose. This is why she combined the dress and wine rack.
If you want frills, there is no better day to get your fill than on your big day. Overall, it is a good idea to avoid overdoing it like this woman did. She looks like she is drowning in ruffles in this photo!
Her Inner Child
She looks like a real-life Barbie doll in her impressive and unique wedding number. Some might say that it is childish, but we see nothing wrong with letting the child-at-heart go wild on her big day!
A Walking Cupcake Tower
The wine rack lady and this cupcake lady happen to be sisters. They had very similar ideas for their wedding gowns. She decided she would be able to make everything more efficient by doing this instead.
During weddings, you will usually the bride and groom wearing coordinated outfits. However, she then decided that she wanted to “twin” with a sheep instead. We have to say that it does not look bad at all.
A Little Help From My Friends
Some couples like to go all out when it comes to the big day. If you are not doing so well financially, maybe you can ask your friends if they want to split the bill with you. It’s a double wedding!
Pretty In Pink
We are glad to see that more ladies are choosing to pick colors that they prefer over white dresses. This woman opted for a pink number that had a billowing fishtail train. If only she didn’t look unhappy in it.
Casual But Classy
Remember, a wedding will happen between you and the person you love the most. It is important to agree on what the big day will be like. One of them liked casual, the other classy so they met half-way!
Cut For Comfort
We think that most brides do not value comfort when they have to choose a wedding dress. You might look nice, but are you comfortable? This pregnant bride made sure she was, and that was the end of it.
Disposable Artsy Wedding Attire
If you want to pay tribute to a holiday on your wedding day, feel free to do so. That’s why they did but added yet another twist. They fashioned a dress and a tux out of paper plates and garbage bags as well!
Getting Hitched With A Landlubber
Pirate-themed weddings actually sound ideal, don’t they? The landlubber lovebirds decided to turn their dream into a reality! We love the pieces they chose for this photo. This looks like it is a still from a game!
Gown In The Dark
Wedding gowns are already pretty spectacular, but there is something more special than usual about this one. For one, it glows in the dark! A closer look will reveal that the patterns are beetles as well.
Pink Frills For Ages
Ladies, do not let anyone tell you that your dreams cannot come true. She wanted to be a princess her whole life, and what better day to make it a reality than her wedding day? Look at her tiara and frills!
Ferrero And Ever
Ferrero Rocher might just be our favorite chocolate brand of chocolate in the world. This lady clearly feels the same way! She is such a huge fan that decided to make it a huge part of her big day.
Blue Is In
This lady is not your typical bride! For one thing, she decided to skip the white dress and go in blue instead. Aside from that, she wanted to jazz up her hair with these blue extensions. You do you, girl!
This dress is a little too fashion-forward. We do not like it, but maybe we just have not kept up with the trends. We cannot deal with the fact that it looks like it went through the shredder before she wore it.
Are you going to a tropical place for your destination wedding? That sounds ideal, but we hope you brought a lot of insect repellant. This bride decided that she would be mosquito-free on her big day!
Attire In Aluminum
It can be a good idea to add metallic touches to your wedding dress. However, this woman decided that she wanted to use it as the main material of her dress! Well, it sure is both strange and captivating.
Chocolate Wedding Dress
Doesn’t Chocolate Week sound amazing to you? The event was even more magical in 2008. After all, Ian Stuart Brides showed off the first edible chocolate gown! If she gets bored, she can simply snack away.
Nowadays, you can find someone who is willing to make the dress of your dreams for you. Feel free to draw up the best design you can imagine! However, we don’t think this is the best color for a wedding.
Orange Camouflage For The Outdoors
This bride smiled gamely for the camera even if she is sporting a gown that many people would hate. The spots and beads are a little too much for us. It must be one of the most daring fashion choices ever.
Urban Graffiti Dress
This lady managed to combine something new and traditional together. What makes it even better as the fact that her dress looks good! It is also lovely that she put their initials on it. How sweet and cool!
Edward vs. Jacob
There is no one way to do a wedding, and the photo below is proof of that. Your wedding day might just be the biggest day of your life. This woman wanted everyone to know that she loves Edward and Jacob.
A Tumblr Wedding
Wow, she looks amazing, doesn’t she? We have to say that this is not something we can pull off. The pink hair, antlers, and tattoo sleeve might look weird on anyone else, but she looks divine with them!
Doing Camouflage Wrong
It is fine if you want to skip the white wedding dress and pick something that is even truer to who you are. We have to be honest and say that we are not fans of this wedding dress, however.
Let Your Imagination Run Wild
She wanted to have the wedding day of her dreams or die trying. We love just how bold this look is! She sure knew how to make a statement, huh? She managed to pull the look off, and we are impressed.
Gown Out Of Hair
Weird is fine sometimes. However, there is no reason for you to go overboard. You can do whatever you want on your big day. This is a dress made out of human hair. We do not think people will approve at all.
Meet Super Bride
How awesome is this bride? This is what happens when an avid comic book fan gets married. As you can see, superheroes just cannot catch a break. It was her big day, but duty calls! Crime just does not rest.
Showing Off Skin
We don’t know about you, but we think body art is gorgeous! Luckily, it is becoming more and more accepted in this day and age. We especially adore the contrast between her skin art and the white dress.
Actual Corpse Bride
There are a lot of strange wedding dresses out there but wait until you see this one. She wanted one spooky wedding, and she was going to get it. Do you think her husband dressed up in the same way?
Don’t Need No Man
Just in case you were single – a man will not make you complete! Ladies, you are enough. Do you hear that? Here is another photo to drive that piece of advice home. We love the tux and dress combo!
There is no better day to go all-out on frills than the day you are going to walk down the aisle. She knew this and decided to use as much color as she could! We love it. While strange, it worked out great.
Summer weddings are nice. They are a little overrated, though, aren’t they? Autumn is pretty awesome as well. Oranges and reds make for a great color scheme. If not great, it will be interesting at least.
Sports On Your Big Day
Some people like to support their football club from afar. Not this lady, however. She was such a big fan of Manchester that her wedding would not be complete without it. This is fine is she’s marrying a player.
Patriotism is an awesome feeling! This is the way to go if you love your country. As you can see, you can celebrate multiple types of love on your big day. Romantic love is a bit overrated, so this is a good idea.
Who would have thought so many adult women like balloons?! We were surprised to hear just how prevalent it is as well. You can use any material you want, but we recommend doing so in moderation.
Over The Top
Sometimes, you have such a nice time in a certain place that it becomes a part of you. This bride liked the costumes so much that she decided to base her wedding dress on it. We don’t know what to say…
Solo Cup Wedding Dress
This is one bride who takes her beer pong seriously. We have to say that this is the first time we have seen a wedding gown like this. We bet it will be a hit among college students who like to party it up.
Veil Of Sorts
The dress works, but that is not the reason it made it to our list. No, we want you to focus on her veil instead. Perhaps she should have picked something that was less in-your-face. It looks like a sci-fi prop!
This is another veil fail if we have ever seen one. We don’t know what look she was going for here. It just looks like there is a dead animal around her head! Creepy. Maybe she did not know that less is more.
A lot of people are proud to be American. This woman was one such person. However, we do not really like the fact that she used the flag as her dress. Honestly, we have to say it is tacky and over-the-top
Balloon Lady Three
Brides and balloons… clearly, we have caught onto a very important pattern here. However, she decided to give it her own twist by choosing a red dress with a high slit that she paired with sky-high heels. Hot!
Country Girl Bride
This bride was not the type of person who would be happy with a minimalist wedding dress. Nope, she wanted to go all-out on her big day. She wanted the cowboy boots parasol, flowers, frills, the works.
All The Stars
This is a dress that would look good on everyone. The fairy lights add a touch of fancy. We love it! It seems like they put it too close to the delicate areas… Electricity there doesn’t sound like a good idea.
Whoa, this is one bizarre dress. For a second there, we thought that she was a dwarf! Why did they put a tight band around her knees anyway? We cannot think of a good reason to do such a thing.
The Fairytale Bride
This is one feathery dress, isn’t it? While it looks like it was lifted from the pages of a fairytale, that is not always a great idea. We have no doubt that she is forcing that smile through the pain of holding it all up.
Face Paint Is The Way To Go
You become a new person when you get married. Did you know that you can become a different animal as well? We do not know the reason they donned animal face paint on their big day, but you do you.
Traditional weddings are not that popular among members of this generation. Many people prefer to do it outside of the church. They wanted to hold it by the beach. On top of that, it was horror-themed too!
This girl was cast to play Odette in Swan Lake. However, she decided it was better to just combine her ballet costume and wedding dress. We don’t know if we like it. The dress is unique, that’s for sure.
True To Her Roots
Some people like elegant and traditional. This lady preferred a fun and quirky dress! On top of her head is a floral headpiece that looks even better than most of the veils we have seen here so far.
Tacos For Days
Tacos are the best, hands down. However, she wanted to show off just how much she loves Taco Bell. The fast food chain was always there for her when she was down, and this woman pays her debt. Nice!
Well, well, well. Are feathers going to be the next big thing? Bridal dress trends are always very hard to predict. She looks pretty happy with her dress. She doesn’t seem to mind it looks like a costume instead!
She chose a completely different theme for her wedding dress. She thought it was a cool idea to put clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds on her dress. We like it, even though it does not seem appropriate.
Ho Ho Ho
When she walked down the aisle, she did not want everyone else to forget the holiday spirit. This is an interesting dress because it works as a Christmas tree as well! Versatility is the way to go, folks.
These dresses are made out of toilet paper. Yup, we could not believe it either! We are pretty scared since the gowns look so brittle. Also, we want to know if the men wore suits from toilet paper as well!
The Frillier The Better
If you are trying to look for the perfect wedding dress, it is always a good idea to pick what your heart wants. This woman liked dresses that pop! We think it looks good on her, but some say she looks fishy…
Fast Forward Fashion
This is a good dress to wear if you do not like the attention. On your big day, all eyes are going to be on you. If you want to hide from their curious eyes, cover yourself in frills. Just watch your step, okay?
As Much Color As Can Be
If you are going to get married, make sure that you wear something no one will ever forget. She knew exactly how to do such a thing. She bedazzled her ruffles and bodice to make sure this was the case!
Give Me A Hand
Nope, it is not made out of feather. Would you believe us when we say that this dress is made of rubber gloves! Yup. Look closely at this photo if you need any proof. That does not look comfortable at all.
We do not know what was going on here, but it seems like the bride was not sore about it at all. Knowing that, could it be that she was the one who planned this thing? Perhaps this was what she chose for something blue!
This is not a bad dress at all. In fact, it looks gorgeous! The bride teased her hair out a lot to get this bird’s nest. It looks great on her, if a little cartoonish. She looks like an evil villain and we love it!
They were pretty low-maintenance, so they did not really go through a lot of hassle for the wedding. The bride and groom just said they will don their best clothes for the wedding, but it was a mismatch…
Faces And Faces
We have to admit that we do not know what this dress was meant to pay tribute to. What we do know is that it looks scary! This is a great idea if you do not want everyone to watch you cry on the big day.
Like A Popstar
Bridal dresses are the norm but feel free to wear whatever dress your heart desires. In fact, you can skip the dress and just wear a fabulous getup like this one. This will make you feel like a popstar, we promise.
While beach weddings are becoming the norm, you should know that they can get very hot. There is no way you can make them wear a tux or a gown in that heat! This also works. Prioritize comfort, folks!
A McDonalds Wedding
The ladies opted to wear dresses made from McDonald’s wrappers and boxes. Most people cannot pull this off, but these gorgeous brides sure can. They look great even if they are literally wearing trash. Wow.
She liked fur, so she decided to have a fur wedding dress. Not just that but a fur wedding dress in pink! The material might be practical if they live somewhere cold… however, it seems far too short for that!
Bones And Brides
How do you feel about this dress? We have to say that we actually quite like it. For one thing, it does not look like anything else on this list. Her melancholic expression is the perfect accessory for her creepily gorgeous getup!
