Flushed With Love
Being a plumber has many benefits, like job security and good pay, because the demand for skilled plumbers is always high — so it’s a career that offers stability and growth opportunities. It makes sense that many plumbers are proud of their careers.
What doesn’t make sense is planning your wedding around it! Hopefully, they don’t have any leaks in their marriage. With a plumber-themed wedding, though, at least they’ve got all the tools they need to fix them!
Fun on the Farm
Weddings don’t need to be expensive. There’s nothing wrong with trying cost-saving tactics to make your big day a bit more affordable. Where it becomes a problem is when it makes your guests super uncomfortable, like this family farm wedding.
Sounds like they went for a rustic, down-to-earth vibe… if we’re being nice. However, we’ve got to say that the combination of cowboy hats and porta-potties doesn’t exactly sound like a winning one.
An Awkward Pizza Delivery
When it comes to wedding planning, couples typically sign contracts with their venue to ensure that all the details are taken care of on their big day. These contracts cover important information such as the rental fee, guest count, catering options, and more.
It’s pretty unclassy to see a couple disregard the terms of their contract and opt for something as casual as pizza delivery at a high-end venue. The lime green color choice also isn’t exactly elegant, but at least it’s unique, we suppose!
Flip Flopping Down the Aisle
Flip-flops are truly one of the greatest inventions of all time. Not only are they incredibly affordable, but they’re perfect for warm weather. Whether you’re lounging on the beach or running errands around town, flip-flops are the ultimate footwear choice for casual comfort.
Casual comfort isn’t really what a wedding day is about, though, especially for the bride and groom. One would expect someone to put in a little bit more effort on their big day. There’s got to be a comfy but slightly classier shoe choice out there.
Stay on Your Side
The stereotype that French people are snooty or pretentious has been around for a long time. The problem with stereotypes is that whenever they’re occasionally proven true, it just reinforces them. This was unfortunately one of those cases.
Aren’t weddings supposed to be about bringing people together, not dividing them based on how much money they have? We deal with arbitrary hierarchies enough in everyday life — we don’t need them at weddings, too!
What a Beautiful Wedding
Not all marriages are born out of love. Sometimes, they’re born out of necessity or desperation — like filling a gap in our lives that may have nothing to do with romantic love. That seems to be what happened at this particular wedding.
Asking for a song to be played that’s literally about a cheating scandal on a wedding day is definitely rubbing salt in the wound. It’s very tacky and hard to imagine this marriage lasting very long!
Sundays Are for Sports
Sunday weddings can be a great option as they’re often cheaper, but they can also cause scheduling conflicts for sports fans. Couples should really think about this before planning a wedding on a Sunday during a sports season.
However, it’s also incredibly childish to show up to the wedding in tacky clothes instead of just not coming at all. If this woman was an adult, why bother being passive-aggressive instead of just watching the game at home, since she clearly didn’t care about the wedding?
Chomping Gum and Exchanging Vows
While it may seem surprising, there are still some U.S. states that will allow those under the age of 18 to get married with parental consent. The most common reason parents would consent to this is teenage pregnancies.
Gum has a time and a place, and chewing it while walking down the aisle and exchanging vows is definitely neither the time nor the place. In fact, it’s a really tacky thing to do. Hopefully, none of the guests were people who get really irritated by chewing and smacking noises!
A Narrowly Avoided Cat-astrophe
Incorporating pets into weddings has become a popular trend in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. After all, who wouldn’t want their furry friend to be a part of their special day?
Sure, it’s usually dog owners who do it — but why not cat owners, too? Maybe it’s a bit tacky, but what’s way tackier is her dad trying to steal her beloved pet! Was it real, or just a very poorly-executed joke that convinced guests it was real?
Lawn Chair Vows
Some people feel more comfortable going for a casual, laid-back wedding. There’s nothing wrong with doing that, but it’s still a wedding, and you’d expect the bride and groom of all people to take it seriously.
It sounds like this groom didn’t understand that a wedding is a special occasion that deserves respect, but to be fair, having it as a barbecue grill-out doesn’t exactly send that message. That must have been one comfy lawn chair.
Here Comes the Invisible Bride
Hunting-themed weddings are gaining popularity among outdoor enthusiasts who want to celebrate their love for each other and their love for the hunt. They usually involve what could potentially be described as an excessive amount of camouflage.
We can maybe get on board with camo-themed decorations, but with a camo tuxedo and wedding dress, how are the guests going to see the bride and groom during the ceremony?!
Waffle House Wedding
Tired of the traditional wedding venues? Try something different! From underwater ceremonies to weddings on a hillside, the possibilities are endless. Couples are opting for unconventional locations to create a truly memorable experience, but some are more unconventional than others.
An underwater ceremony sounds pretty cool, but a ceremony at a Waffle House? Not so much. Sure, we love waffles as much as the next person, but it isn’t exactly the prettiest place to get married.
Rehearsal Dinner Disaster
Food poisoning is a bride and groom’s worst nightmare. The struggle to keep food safe and avoid contamination at a wedding is as real as in any other setting, but with proper planning and attention to detail, it shouldn’t be an issue.
There was definitely no proper planning and attention to detail in this situation. So many people don’t seem to know that mayonnaise is made with eggs, and anything with mayo as an ingredient should definitely not be left unrefrigerated for so long!
The World’s Shortest Ceremony
The average length of a wedding ceremony depends on cultural and religious traditions, as well as personal preferences. While some couples opt for a quick ceremony, others prefer a longer and more elaborate one to make their special day extra memorable.
There are quick ceremonies, and then there’s this. Picturing the bride and groom inside dealing with a “critter” while all dressed up is a pretty funny image, though. Was it a rat, a raccoon, or something even worse?
Dominoes to the Rescue
Finding the right caterer for a wedding can be daunting. With so many factors to consider, like budget and dietary restrictions, it’s important for couples to do their research and ask the right questions to find a caterer that meets their needs.
Before you can consider any of those factors, though, you kind of need to ensure that you actually hired your caterer! A random conversation late at night after a few adult beverages is not a contract.
Bye Bye Butterflies
Outdoor weddings can be really beautiful, or they can be an absolute nightmare. A lot of it comes down to the weather, which is unfortunate since it’s something we can’t control. Those poor butterflies!
That’s the problem with ideas like this. People don’t think about the consequences or needs of the butterflies — they just think of how cute it would be. They should have stuck to natural confetti instead. A lot of butterfly lives would have been saved that way.
Pretty Poor Planning
Sure, it’s nice for family members or friends to offer up their own property to host weddings. It’s low-cost and low-key, which is what many happy couples want. But if you’re offering your property, guests expect it to be nice.
The least they could have done is clean up beforehand! Sure, nobody minded the dead grass, but surely the people who had to spend an hour clearing the yard the day of minded a lot.
With Arms Wide Open
The songs the bride and groom choose for their first dance and entry to the reception are pretty important. They really set the tone for the rest of the evening.
One can only imagine the bride and groom bursting through those flimsy paper doorways, ready to rumble to the sounds of Creed. It’s like they were trying to recreate a romantic moment from a cheesy ’90s music video, and everyone else at the reception was just caught up in the absurdity of it all.
European and Hypoallergenic
We all have that one friend who’s gotten sucked into a multi-level marketing scheme at one point or another. It’s usually those old high school acquaintances who are determined to convince you how great their protein powder or candles are.
Do you think that the reason the guests were all cringing at the extra-long song was because she managed to sing about selling her MLM makeup, too? You can’t put it past people like that.
From Chiding to Childish
College rivalries are serious business. Finding out that your new partner is a fan of your rival team is often enough to completely destroy the relationship — that’s how intense they are.
But regardless of how intense the rivalries can be, they should never be pushed as far as intentionally destroying someone else’s property, which in this case was her dress. That’s not rivalry, that’s childish, and is a bad thing to teach actual children to do.
The World’s Most Rapid Divorce
Sure, most wedding ceremonies include a line about “‘til death do us part,” but that doesn’t mean that it’s always the case. Many marriages end well before that, and some hardly get going at all.
Apparently in Germany, they say “I do” and then say “I don’t” during the reception. That’s an even quicker turnaround than that one celebrity marriage that only lasted a whopping 55 hours. Why on earth did she marry him in the first place?
A Cringey Procession
“Rickrolling” is an internet prank that started out as tricking someone into clicking a hyperlink that leads them to the music video for Rick Astley’s 1987 hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up”, and quickly grew to real-life situations.
While this is cringy, we’d like to think that at least it’s slightly better than dancing down the aisle to the chicken dance or the YMCA, or that one Chris Brown song like in The Office.
Seriously Smelly Ceremony
Some people choose to get married in public parks, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but one has to be careful about the specific location they choose. We’re not sure that this one was a winner.
Nothing says “romantic wedding venue” quite like a cinder block building that smells like you’re in the innards of a portapotty. And humming “Here Comes the Bride” while trying to stifle the smell? Talk about ambiance!
Smack, Here’s the Bride
If you’re looking for a wedding theme that screams “true love’s kiss,” nothing beats a medieval wedding. From knights in shining armor to flower crowns, it’s the perfect way to say “I do” while also slaying dragons (figuratively speaking, of course).
The theme wasn’t the issue here, but rather the bride’s very ungraceful and uncomfortable entrance. Was there really no other place for this poor bride to get dressed? She deserved better than an outhouse.
Until Fat Do Us Part
If there’s one thing that a bride doesn’t want on her wedding day, it’s to be made to feel anything less than beautiful and loved. It’s supposed to be a special day associated with good memories.
So if you’re a groom like this one looking at making a joke at your bride’s expense, we’ve got one word of advice for you — don’t. It’s not worth making her feel bad and embarrassed.
Hulkmania Is Still Running Wild
There are some things that lots of people are weirdly obsessed with, and no one really knows why. Sometimes, it’s sloths. Other times, it’s obscure celebrities, like professional wrestler Hulk Hogan.
Is it the mustache? The muscles? The spandex? The ultra-blonde hair and bandana? We may never know why people love Hulk Hogan so much, but one thing’s for sure — his fan base is stronger than his biceps, as evidenced by this wedding.
Siblings Share Everything, Including Gifts
Wedding presents are the perfect way for brides and grooms to collect valuable items that they can trade in for something better or cold, hard cash. That is, if one of your wedding guests doesn’t open them all first.
Is the bride’s unmarried sister five years old? That’s the only excuse for doing something like that. Sure, siblings are taught to share, but opening your sister’s wedding gifts is taking sharing a bit far.
The Strangest Location
The cool thing about wedding receptions is that you can have them just about anywhere. Under a tent in the backyard, at a park, or in a banquet hall are just a few options, but some people look for a more creative location.
Why have a boring old banquet hall wedding reception when you can have one at a gentlemen’s club? Sure, your grandma might not approve, but at least the male wedding guests will be entertained.
A Casual Catfishing Ceremony
The great thing about the internet is that it gives us the opportunity to connect with potential romantic partners that we may not have met organically. The downside is that catfishers exist and take advantage of vulnerable people.
Being stood up at the altar is like getting a free pass to join the ‘I got dumped in the most humiliating way possible’ club, but the most baffling part is that no one cared. Maybe they all expected it to happen.
Beware the Bridezilla
Bridezilla — a creature known for its irrational demands, incessant whining, and the ability to turn a beautiful wedding into a nightmare. Just remember, if you see one in the wild, don’t make eye contact.
These poor wedding guests couldn’t avoid eye contact, and both they and the groomsmen paid the price. Being so insanely controlling that you don’t let people dance or eat their meat how they want to is incredibly tacky.
Don’t Toast the Happy Couple
Getting married at a young age is a bit controversial. There are plenty of couples who marry young and lead a happy life together, but often people change a lot and grow apart in their 20s.
There’s getting married young, and then there’s getting married young three times. If she’s not even old enough to have a proper toast, she may not be old and wise enough to make the choice to commit to someone like that.
It’s an Aisle, Not a Runway
A wedding trend that’s become really popular in recent years is outfit changes for the bride. It was born from a practical point-of-view, as many wedding dresses are super heavy or hard to move around in.
Now, though, it’s turned weddings into fashion shows — which is clearly what this bride was going for. It’s pretty tacky to walk in and walk back out over something so silly, especially after your guests have now waited on you for a total of three hours.
Hazy Wedding Photos
We all have bad habits. Some of us eat too much sugar, some of us are suckers for late-night Taco Bell, and others have one too many adult beverages or partake in other more “smokey” addictions.
If you’re so addicted that you refuse to stop for 10 minutes to take nice pictures, then you’ve got a really serious problem. Did the pictures all have gray, hazy clouds behind the wedding party?
Lived Hard, Played Hard
Ah, the early 2000s, the era of juicy reality TV shows that had us all hooked. From Jersey Shore to The Girls Next Door, we laughed, cried, and cringed along with our favorite reality stars. Life was easier then.
Some people are so nostalgic about this era that they even incorporate it into their weddings. The idea of interviews actually seems cute and unique, but the execution was pretty poor and cringy.
Doomed From the Get-Go
Some people get married before they’re mature enough to handle it, and it’s usually very obvious from the way they behave at their wedding and reception. This tacky groom is a great example.
Everything about this wedding sounds like it would be next to the word “cringy” in the dictionary. It also seems like the groom needed to grow up a lot, so it’s not really surprising that the marriage didn’t make it.
Not Even a Thank You
Sending thank you cards after a wedding is like giving your guests a big hug through the mail. It’s a way to express your gratitude for their presence, presents, and support on your big day.
But, there are couples who just never get around to sending them. Whether they forget or they just can’t be bothered, it’s a bit rude when guests spend time and money looking for the perfect gift for the happy couple.
Wedding rehearsal dinners are the perfect opportunity for family drama, adult-beverage-driven speeches, and last-minute changes to the seating chart. It’s all practice for the real thing, which is why it’s horrifying when things go wrong.
These parents definitely didn’t disappoint when it comes to family drama, and didn’t seem to care about embarrassing their son and future daughter-in-law. They really couldn’t put their petty differences aside for one evening to be there for their kid?
When Push Comes to Shove
Speaking of out-of-control parents, when it comes to ruining a wedding, the parents of the bride and groom have it down to an art form. From cheesy dance moves to cringe-worthy speeches, they never fail to embarrass their children.
In this case, it wasn’t so innocent, but rather something more serious, and it’s really tacky for the bride and groom to refuse to stand up for their own guests. No wonder none of the bridesmaids speak to her anymore.
Til Cake Cutting Do Us Part
Wedding cakes are the ultimate multitasker. They look beautiful, they taste delicious, and they’re the perfect prop for a messy cake smash photo. They’re so delicious, in fact, that some people just can’t resist diving into them prematurely.
Considering the whole cutesy “bride and groom cutting the cake” scene that’s a major part of every wedding, the mother-in-law doing this is so incredibly disrespectful and tacky. We can see why the former bride is still angry, but hopefully, she can get over it someday.
The Groom and What’s-Her-Face
An officiant can make or break a wedding, like the conductor of a symphony. A good one will guide the ceremony with grace and humor, while a bad one will leave everyone wishing they’d eloped. This one, unfortunately, was the latter.
Sure, the guests were entertained by his inappropriate jokes and references, but the bride and groom surely weren’t. And on top of that, it’s so unprofessional to show up to an event under the influence! Hopefully, that was his last time leading a wedding ceremony.
Vegetarians Not Welcome
Cutting corners on costs means finding creative solutions to save money without sacrificing quality. Being cheap, on the other hand, means putting your wallet above all else — even if it means compromising on important details.
Intentionally not buying food or table space for your vegetarian guests is being cheap, and it’s the definition of tacky. Did she just have some sort of weird grudge against vegetarians in general that she took out on her guests?
Loads of Uninvited Guests
Having a wedding in a public park can be a beautiful and budget-friendly option, but it also comes with its own set of challenges, like the uninvited guests these weddinggoers had to deal with.
To be fair, if the wedding was Star Wars-themed, the bride and groom were likely chill and playful people, which means the LARPing nearby may have been hilarious instead of tacky. But, no one wants sweaty high schoolers running through their ceremony.
Flashy and Extravagant
Showing off your wealth might seem impressive, but it can actually come across as tacky. After all, true elegance is about understated luxury, not flashy excess. The bride, groom, and guests at this wedding didn’t get that memo, though.
One has to wonder how much money Iron Maiden got paid to be ushers at some bougie couple’s wedding. It seems so out of place for a heavy metal band, but anything goes at a rich wedding.
Who Needs to Dress Up?
Brides and grooms dress up on their wedding day as a symbol of their commitment to each other and to their guests. It’s a way to show respect and honor for the occasion and what it means to them as a couple.
There’s nothing wrong with being comfortable, but this sounds a bit like getting married for the wrong reasons. If he was getting a daddy and she was truly getting a groom she loved, then sure, but we’re not so sure.
The Money-Making Marriage
Weddings can be expensive, with the average cost in the US hovering around $30,000. But at the end of the day, it’s not about the price tag, it’s about the love and commitment shared between two people.
This couple clearly did care about the price tag, though. So much so that they tried to use their wedding as an opportunity to make money off of their friends and family. The gall of it all is pretty impressive.
While weddings are often seen as elegant affairs, some couples opt for a more unique, unconventional approach. However, there’s a fine line between unique and tacky, and some weddings end up falling squarely on the wrong side. Questionable fashion choices and bizarre décor decisions often leave guests cringing and wondering what the couple was thinking. From plunger centerpieces to cowboy hats, these weddings are beyond tacky!
