These Wedding Photos Will Have You Rolling In Laughter, Literally!
A wedding day is definitely one of the best days of anyone's life. Not only do you get to marry the person you want to be with for the rest of your life, you are also surrounded by all the other people you care about the most. What better way to immortalize this precious moment than by taking pictures on camera?
1. Stuck in the moment
Ahh, the wedding veil. Sometimes the bride opts to wear it as part of her wedding ensemble, sometimes it causes a wedding photo fail. New York City-based photographer Sascha Reinking captured this moment when the veil got stuck in the elevator. We certainly hope that the lift wasn't planning to go anywhere.
2. That's what friends are for
One of the most important people at a wedding is the bridesmaid. For sure, the bride chooses the women who have had her back since day 1. She also picks those who have witnessed her love story first hand with the groom. It's only fitting that they have a photo together on the special occasion.
3. Inner purge
Another unforeseen moment captured by elopement photographer Sascha Reinking, the little flower girl had an unexpected upchuck. Well, taking pictures of children can be really challenging as their actions can be unpredictable. The reactions of the rest of the subjects on the photo are everything.
4. Who wears the veil again?
Last time we checked, the lady is supposed to be the one to wear the wedding veil. If that's not the case though, we're still cool with it. It's the 21st century after all. However, we don't think the gent in this photo fail wanted to have the sheer piece on his face.
5. Baby on the way
The thing about taking pictures at public places— even if it's on a pavement— is that you never know who or what might pop up on your photo. Even though New York City-based photographer David Perlman was able to control his subjects, his wonderful shot didn't pan out as a woman and her baby in a stroller suddenly appeared.
6. She couldn't stand him
A wedding fail could very well result to a wedding photo fail. This funny image posted by Keira Agostinho on her Instagram page features her mother-in-law being forced to stand next to her ex-husband. Well, you can convince her to be with her former groom in the same photo, but you can't make her smile.
7. How do they do it in films?
We blame the romantic movies for giving us sky high expectations— Not just about the love stories but the romantic gestures as well. You know the part where the guy effortlessly lifts the girl in the air and they swirl into the abyss? Well, apparently it's hard to achieve that classic shot in real life.
8. A wedding fan
Destination weddings sound fun and chill until the couple chooses a tropical place. For this bridesmaid who was attending an exclusive event in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the weather was just too hot to handle. The Del Sol Photography caught her in the act, hoarding the air coming out of the electric fan.
9. Tears of joy
As much as parents with a newborn baby want to highlight their bundle of joy on their special day, the circumstances won't just allow it. In the case of this couple, their offspring felt like crying... the entire time.
10. Shirtless guests
We honestly feel for the beautiful pair here and their wedding entourage. It's like the shirtless photobombers couldn't care less. Wedding photographer Ben Lau wasn't going to have that so he exacted revenge.
11. What is happening?
We're going to be honest here, we have no idea what is happening but we're pretty sure it's not supposed to be caught on camera. We came up with a few theories surrounding this baffling image. It could be that the groom was probably trying to sit on the bride's lap. Maybe he's dancing and seducing her new wife. Perhaps her garter was trapped in her cowboy boot?
12. Are we done yet?
At first glance, this classic wedding pic from the ’80s look every bit of normal— the entourage is positioned correctly, the smiles are ready to be snapped, the four children seemed very obedient. But wait, there's is actually a fifth child...
13. It's like raining on your wedding day
If a little rain on your wedding day symbolizes luck then consider this soaked bride the luckiest of them all! It looked like she was supposed to have a beach wedding but the storm got in the way. It also interfered with her supposed sweet shot underneath an umbrella.
14. The happiest guest
This wedding photo looks sweet and normal— the officiant is giving his blessings to the thrilled couple— until you check out the bottom part of the image. Can this cute doggo be any happier for its humans? He looks over the moon! We wish he did that during the reception though.
15. Animal crossing
Can we actually categorize this as a wedding photo fail? We don't think so, too. If a pack of canine interlopers appears on your pictorial, then it's honestly for the best. These endearing dogs accidentally photobombed the dashing grooms' middle-of-the-road photograph.
16. Hold your tongue
Let's face it, even if the bride and the groom are the stars of a wedding event, it wouldn't be a fun occasion without the guests. Sometimes, a particular guest even becomes the center of attention.
17. Rose among the thorns
Seven sisters carrying their lone brother on his wedding? Aww, cute! Until they discover he's actually heavy and he takes a tumble. Hollywood actress Melissa Joan Hart, also known as Sabrina the Teenage Witch, showed on Instagram that celebrities can have wedding photo fails, too.
18. Runaway Bridesmaid
You have to admit this is a gold photo, and one that we can relate to when it comes to snapping photos for the 'gram. Aside from the coordinators, bridesmaids are some of the busiest during a marriage ceremony. They have to tend to the bride's needs, including fixing her look for creative shots.
19. When boredom hits
There are so many things happening in this photo but the little blond boy in front takes the center stage. He's not in the mood to take pictures you know, so he is just going to play with the garter of his pants. It was so candid that even the bride wasn't able to smile for the camera.
20. Two out of three
Imagine the frustration of an Insta-mom who was only able to capture one photo of her three children together at a wedding where they attended as guests. To make matters worse is the middle child looked the opposite of happy in that sole image.
21. Faded memories
We know that the bride is basically the star of the wedding, but it still wouldn't be an event without the groom. So, how come the gentleman's face on this wedding album fail was blurred on the cover? Wait, wasn't this supposed to be a book of professional wedding photographs?
22. Black and white theme
Remember the little flower girl who threw up at the pavement? We think we would have that over a baby spitting up at our wedding tux any day. It looks like the groom is at his chillest though. He knows that it's just a baby and it doesn't know yet how expensive the fabric he spewed at.
23. Uninvited guests
Blue skies, stunning backdrop, perfect weather, and a fabulous bride— what could possibly go wrong in this nuptial photo shoot? Well, for starters, a couple of gate-crashes could go the wrong direction and end up at your beautiful shot.
24. Bail out of the veil
If images back, the victim of a wayward veil was the groom during a windy weather, this time around it's the bridesmaid. This funny wedding photo was posted by bride Tegan on Instagram, which depicts the moment one of her bridesmaids was trapped under her long bridal veil.
25. Confused by confetti
We don't know about you, but one of our favorite parts of a traditional union is when the guests throw confetti at the newly weds. It symbolizes fertility and prosperity, but some people might be confused about this. We can ask groom Matt over here on why he had the priceless expression.
26. Peace out
We're not sure if photobombing cyclist here is deliberately posing for the camera or gesturing a peace sign for riding his way into the wedding pictorial. This yet another road-crossing shot proved to be a challenge for the photographer and her subjects in a bustling city.
27. Oh, deer...
This amusing image was taken during the couple's prenuptial photo shoot but they still didn't stand a chance from a pair of non-human photobombers. It looks like the groom-to-be is still haunted by his stag party. Perhaps the deer duo also wanted a couple pic?
28. She hit the dance floor
Nothing beats a drunken guest at a wedding reception. It's like an instant entertainer for the event and the newly weds don't even have to pay a single cent. Not only that, the burden of giving everyone the attention is lifted and they are left but to enjoy the show.
29. Wedding toast
Can someone please enlighten us if throwing a beer on the newly-married is another version of blowing bubbles and showering confetti? Because if that's a legit thing, then we have no issue here. The only failure about it would have been that the other guests are not as supportive and participative.
30. Choose your fighter
From the previous images, we've only had one or two kids acting up in the nuptial photo. Well, here we are now, with almost ten children displaying different moods. Some are smiling, some are yawning, and some are crying.
31. Underwear fix
This is a circumstance that we can relate to at weddings and other formal events. The urge to fix our underwear just doesn't go away. Perhaps we should have chosen a better pair of panties, but we're here and we have no choice but to live with the consequences.
32. Bull's eye
The life of a bull can sometimes be boring. When they're not being used for nourishment or entertainment, they have time to spare. Perhaps this wild animal thought he'd say hi to the husband and wife.
33. They fell for one another
As far as we know, the bride and the groom weren't planning a beach wedding, so this unfortunate event was clearly not part of the plan. The wooden dock couldn't carry the weight of the bridesmaids and the groomsmen combined, so it broke down while they were all standing on it.
34. Curiosity captured the cat
They don't call it catwalk for no reason. The feline animal knows how to work it on and off the runway. Too bad for the twosome, the cat chose to steal the show and crashed their wedding pictorial.
35. Spill your guts
Hey, bridesmaid in the middle— we think you've already had too much to drink. You're spilling the thousand dollar champagne. Time to sober up... She missed the glass! Just look at the wide reaction of the lady on the right. We hope her pastel blue gown wasn't submerged with the alcoholic drink.
36. Dessert disaster
Another special part of a traditional wedding that we always look forward to? The cutting of cake. Yeah, we appreciate the symbolism of the couple's first activity done together, but we're really just after feeding our sweet tooth. Unfortunately for this husband and wife, the cake fell over before they could even get a taste of it.
37. Off the top of their heads
When the cake's not the one on the verge of being a disaster, it's the figurine of the bride and groom that's taking the blow. Here we see the toppers decapitated. So, we would like to present our theories. First, the married couple probably decided to spice things up and chop their heads instead of cutting the cake.
42. Hold your peace
Drunken guests at the wedding reception, we think we can handle it, but a passed out bridesmaid at the marriage ceremony? Someone please call a medic. Was the young lady drunk? We don't have the answer, right now. Maybe she just fell over? Where's her other shoe?
39. Best swan
Why do birds suddenly appear? Even on your wedding day... It looks like the swan wants the lady's pristine gown so much it launched straight from the freshwater. Or was the waterfowl after her bouquet of flowers?
40. Guess who tripped over this time
Normally, when we see jaw-dropping reactions of subjects like those, we assume that the person behind the lens gave them the instruction to strike a pose. Judging by the camera angle though, it seemed like the facial expressions of the wedding entourage was as natural as it could be. The look of horror on their faces are so genuine.
41. Wedding swingers
Sometimes it's the guests, sometimes it's the photobombers. More often than not though, it's the bride and the groom themselves. Just look at this adorable couple who tried to fit in a single swing. You guys!!! Maybe they wanted to get into the swing of being married?
42. Crash landing on you
We've heard about grand entrances before but a paraglider showing up uninvited? Now that's something new. Was he there to stop the wedding? He better speak up or forever hold his peace... Kidding aside we totally get why someone would go crash landing in the middle of the ceremony.
43. Just a piece of cake
Oh, boy. We can imagine the panic of the newly-weds and the anxiety of the guests. On what could have been a yummy dessert for everyone ended up being devoured by the floor. What's worse is that the couple never got to slice it together.
44. Image you can hear
Here's another distressing incident involving a wooden dock. Seriously though, what's with wedding entourages standing all together at the pier and smiling for photos? If they're after the view, we sincerely hope it was worth getting soaked for.
45. Wedding suit
Let's give this guy the benefit of the doubt and assume that this is just the wedding rehearsal so he doesn't really need to remove the security tag immediately. If that isn't the case, he was probably just too excited on his big day. The price tag isn't there so he most likely paid for it.
Here we have a pair of newlyweds sharing one of their first kisses as husband and wife. If you look closely, you'll find one of the groomsmen who is actually not the biggest PDA supporter. We understand his sentiments though— sometimes it's just cringe-worthy to see two people plant a kiss on each other.
47. The cutest guests
Can this picture get any cuter? We doubt it! If you ask us, this is not really a wedding photo fail, we just really wanted to include this to brighten up your day. These friendly dolphins are just the best photobomber ever. We think they showed up to send the recently married couple their congratulations and best wishes.
48. The dead photobomber
Did these two get married on Halloween? That's the only logical explanation we could think of as to why there is a Grim Reaper on their wedding day. He's in full mythological regalia and it's giving us the creeps. We would rather have the moody kids acting up or the random animals disturbing our pictorial.
49. Lady horse
Is it just us or the legs of the bride on the photo look like they belong to a horse? Ha. Just kidding. We know the lady's riding a horse. If you have no idea about optic illusion though, you might just believe the guy married a female centaur.
50. Mama's boy
She's not a regular mom, she's a cool mom. We're not certain if the old woman is the mother of the bride or the groom, but she's one supportive lady. Even if the newly weds are already in their car, ready to celebrate their honeymoon as husband and wife, the female guest is not prepared to leave them alone.
51. Just queen things
Getting married also means pleasing your partner your whole life. In this particular photo, the groom is only doing what he would be doing for the rest of their married life, which is bowing down and worshipping his queen!
52. A breath of relief
There's nothing better than the relief of knowing that the stress of your wedding is finally over. And now you can get cozy with the person you married in the car! The only thing left to do is attend the reception, dine, mingle, and call it a day. Just look at the cute couple in this photo!
53. The cold never bothered them anyway
When you're with someone you love, you can ignore even the bitterest cold. In this photo, a couple is seen smiling during their union even with the trickling snow! We wish for a love like this, that even when snow is deep, the show must go on!
54: Wedding is like a walk in Jurassic Park
In this hilarious photo, a groom is seen with someone in a T-rex costume behind him. The best thing about this is without context, one might be confused as to whether the T-rex is poised to bite him or congratulate him for his big day.
55. Awkward dance number
Weddings are a magical event, but not for everyone. As it's a time where everyone gets together, there is bound to have some entertainment that is usually put together by the entourage. In this photo, groomsmen and bridesmaids are dancing a dance that no one seemed to have gotten the memo of.
56. Makeup check
It's perfectly fine to be conscious of how you look on your wedding day. Just look at this bride having a final makeup check before stepping down for the wedding party. The candid shot reminds us that weddings are not always picture perfect and a retouch is always necessary.
57. Yeah, we'll wait
Weddings are riddled with waiting times that will make your head scratch. In this photo, it appears that the bride, groom, and the guests are losing patience over someone — a slow photographer or a family member that won't catch on, we'll never know.
59. Heartwarming surprise
Does it just melt your heart seeing parents cry on their child's wedding day? In this particular wedding, the bride took the emotional factor up the notch by not showing what she looks like as a bride to her father until right before the ceremony.
59. Good ol' switcheroo
Imagine pulling the veil up and seeing your groomsman as your bride. It's the good ol' switcheroo! In this photo, the groom and his groomsman have some fun speculating what it would be like if they get married. It's complete with the groomsman being in a gown and all!
59. Party time
This woman, who looks like a wedding planner (but we're hoping she's an ordinary guest for giggles), holds a board that literally says it's time for the party. Now, admit it. Most of us go to weddings hoping the ceremony would end quickly so we could eat, drink, and party our hearts out.
61. No kisses for you
Forever alone? Just look at this poor bloke who has no one to kiss in this photo. We're thinking he regrets attending the wedding! We mean, imagine being pulled by your family members for a harmless photo-taking and they do something like this! It's mortifying but pretty funny.
62. Flying bride
Brides should feel like they're flying when they're getting married. In this photo, the bride and the groomsmen took the statement to literal heights!
63. Bestmen for life
Some brides want matching accessories, matching hair colors, and matching glam look with their bridesmaids while some grooms just want to have the same socks as their groomsmen. In this adorable photo, you can see the main men of the wedding sporting equally-themed socks.
64. Chug it down
It's a free estate once the guests landed at the reception. Here, the sophistication is thrown away and everyone is ready to get into a wildin' party. The photo below is an example of how true this is.
65. So, you guys ready?
In this unintentionally hilarious photo, a bride sits across from her bridesmaids who looks like they're not having fun at all. The way she sits in a relaxed position while the bridesmaids look on as if they have sticks on their backs is comedic gold.
66. Goodbyes are hard
Weddings are once-in-a-lifetime events that gather an entire family, even members who are from far away places. After the wedding, you'll have to say goodbye, not knowing where you're going to see them again.
67. Wedding rumble
Uh, we're not really sure what's going on here. The couple looks like the biggest football fans and the groomsmen and bridesmaids had to adhere to their wishes. A football stance in your fine outfit on a muddy grass field? Not really ideal.
68. We feel this couple
What's better than capping off a beach wedding than going to the water and taking a cold dip with your new partner in life? The couple in this photo just had to do it, especially because of how beautiful the sunset is.
69. That kiss must be something
The lip-locking of the newly-weds is one of the most anticipated moments at a wedding. It's a symbol of two people finally coming together and such a sweet thing to see! It looks like the pleasure of a true love's kiss got into the bride in this photo.
70. I'll just snooze here, honey
It's only his wedding night but this husband is already sleeping on his wife. I mean, forgive the guy, wedding days are naturally exhausting, but we shouldn't rule out that the wife could also be telling a tedious story.
71. The time of pretending is over
Heels are a nightmare. Now, think about wearing them all day, brandishing a smile even when they're hurting your entire feet. We don't know completely relatable this picture is for many!
72. Bride dive
Now, we don't really know what transpired before this photo, but we totally support this woman. It's her wedding day! Let her dive on the floor and show her dance moves!
73. It was a long night
According to a Twitter user who posted this photo, the priest kept on dozing off during the ceremony. What's worse is that he also said the wrong name during the vows. Probably because he's still dreaming even with his eyes open. At one point, he had to sit down and finally sleep in front of the entourage and guests.
74. That felt good
It's such a sensational feeling to be finally legally bound to the partner of your choice but in this photo, the couple seemed to have reached the heavens. What happened really isn't clear but it looks like it only affected the couple as the people behind remain unfazed.
75. Wedding pitch
This baseball-inspired wedding photoshoot hits all the right bases! Not only it's perfectly blocked, the photo also exhibits how much of a cool gal the bride is and how supportive the husband and her friends are.
76. Cheers to that
Drinks make or break a wedding. An ample amount of tasty drinks will certainly make your wedding a ten out of ten for guests, especially groomsmen. This photo alone shows how eager men are to have the exchanging of vows end quickly and head for the party for some booze.
77. Look at those colorful doors
A classic after-wedding photoshoot always consists of a pose like this. A pose where the groomsmen and the bridesmaids seem to be in a tug-of-war trying to get their friend back to singlehood.
78. Oh, deer, here we go again
We already had deers disturbing a wedding shot (or maybe it's the humans disturbing them) to have the spotlight on their own gallant selves. It happened again in the picture below where a deer at a temple in Japan suddenly crashed a bride's photoshoot.
79. Make way for the cool bride
Cool brides are a gem. You might have heard of stories of bridezillas dampening the fun of their wedding days. The woman in the photo is sure far from being one. Wearing baby pink heart-shaped glasses tells more about her than her open diary.
80. Spray it on
This candid shot caught one of the most stressful but, at the same time, relaxing moments on a wedding prep: hairstyling. As you can see in the photo, the stylist looks like she found a problem in the hair of the bride who is busy pinching her cheeks.
81. She's not having it
Kids can be unruly and will often ruin (or make) crucial wedding scenes. The little girl in this photo woke up that day and decided that photoshoots are not for her. The groom had to catch her as she tried to run away. The bride did the same motion, and they accidentally created a scene straight from Renaissance paintings.
82. Good boy groomsman
In the photo below, a dog proves that his kind is really man's best friend. In what would be a moment of waiting for a bride's arrival, the cute pup sits idly beside his master, as if also holding a flower to give to the beautiful bride.
83. Wait, this isn't right
Weddings are the best avenue to pull off pranks to family members. The lad in this picture was the unfortunate subject of a prank in where he thought he's holding a woman's leg during a classic garter game. Instead, it's his bearded uncle already holding a cup of drink.
84. On the rocks
This newly-wed decided to shoot wedding photos shoot on rocky terrain. A bad sign of a rocky marriage? We certainly don't think so.
85. Groomsmen, assemble
Fans of superheroes should relate to the photo below which shows groomsmen showing who they really are — comic book nerds. With the rise of superhero movies, this shouldn't be surprising.
86. Spider husband
Speaking of superheroes, see this husband showing off his Spider-Man-like skills while kissing his lovely wife. In what would be an attempt to emulate Peter Parker and Mary Jane's kiss in the rain from the first Spider-Man movie, the photo depicts the man holding on on a gazebo railing as his bride cranes her neck.
87. She picked the right man
She definitely did. Now, we don't know the story of why this bride is picking her nose but one thing's for certain, she's a good catch and she picked a man that is more than ready to ride her hilarious antics.
88. Soap opera wedding
I fear that one of these ladies will snap and slap each other telenovela style. The people in this photo, including the photographer behind the lens, might not have been planning it to be too intense that it looks like a still from a Spanish drama.
89. Bride down
Brides aren't safe from being completely wasted by the end of the day. In fact, most brides themselves party hard when the wedding formalities are over. Like this young bride who had no choice back then but to snooze on a grassy terrain because of how intoxicated she is.
90. Gift them spoons
It's so sweet to see couples enjoying something together, even if it's as silly as hanging a spoon on their noses and trying not to let it fall off. We say gift the couple in the following photo more spoons for more silly times together!
91. This isn't the reception
A beachside wedding is a dream come true for many couples, and a chance to frolic for gowned guests. This hilarious photo captured a moment in one wedding where women in long dresses took a moment to meet the waves.
92. Some things don't change
This vintage photo calls back to a time when young couple Charles R. Baker and Elaine D. Matthews got married in 1955. It shows the bride throwing her bouquet to the aspiring brides behind. They all scramble frantically for the bouquet, in the hopeful chance that they'll be walking down the aisle soon.
93. Unexpected kiss
What's supposed to be a romantic kiss turns into a hysterical nightmare for one bride. Pictured here is a husband smooching his wife who seemed to have been surprised at the turn of the events, causing her to be captured in the most unflattering way.
94. Emily's feline reflexes
A wedding hora is a traditional Jewish chair dance performed on weddings where the couple is lifted up by guests on chairs. This isn't always successful as evident by this picture. It shows a woman seemingly falling off her chair as her husband is still having the time of his life.
95. The ring is here somewhere
This poor bride had to submerge herself and her wedding gown for matters unknown! We just hope it's for something essential like finding her ring or finding her husband!
96. Unfortunate misstep
One wrong step resulted in the literal downfall of one bride on what's supposed to be a fine march after exchanging vows. According to the bride, Julie, who posted this on Twitter, she accidentally stepped on her dress while walking down a stairway. She tripped. Her husband, Tim, held on to her until they both crash down the cement.
97. Rip-roaring wedding
Dance and jump too much and you get ripped pants. This is the case for one unfortunate man who enjoyed too much at the wedding that had him running for a tailor.
98. Helpful husband
When this bride tripped on her dress, the husband's initial response was to laugh. You would expect the bride to get angry, but she didn't as she was laughing herself.
99. Safe wedding
With the world's current state, a disinfected and socially-distanced wedding is not a product of weird wedding themes anymore. If you're planning a wedding this year, there's a high chance that you'll have to follow protocols to avoid being reprimanded.
100. Together we fall
This isn't a bride and a groom already hammered at the ceremony but instead an interesting and cute moment captured by a photographer. On a Twitter post by the bride, she recalled how her husband's grandmother tripped while taking pictures. They tried to help her but they too fell and the trio stayed there, laughing their hearts out. A true unadulterated moment.
