Top 20 Worst Wedding Photos

It’s amazing how many weddings are held in a year.  And among those weddings are some pretty awful wedding moments.  Luckily, people post them on the web for all to see.  These are easily some of the worst wedding photos we could find.

The 20 Worst Wedding Photos

#20 – The Arranged Marriage
Nothing says, ‘This is not the person I want to marry.” quicker than the scowl of a groom and an arranged marriage between two unhappy adults.


#19 – The Bride’s Number One
Believe it or not, brides have to go potty too.  However, there normally isn’t documentation of the event.


#18 – Disdain
Not sure what happened previous to this shot, but we’re guessing the groom simply isn’t happy about something.  Considering that he’s carrying her, maybe it’s a cry for help?


#17 – Destination Wedding
Destination wedding on nudist beaches aren’t complete without the innocent glimpses of beach combers passing by.  Hey, at least his eyes aren’t wandering.


#16 -Wedding of Death
While it’s understood that this photo is intentional, it doesn’t make it right.  The bride’s father must be thrilled about signing a check to pay for fake blood and dry cleaning.  Just awesome.


#15 – The Knife Lick
It’s just a elbow jerk away from being a hospital stay.


14 – You Still Love Me, Right?
Either he just got done sharing what he did at the Bachelor party last night or he’s trying to cover up saying something stupid with a kiss. Either way, she’s ticked.


#13 – Arranged Marriage #2

One common thread with arranged marriages is that the couple will never be featured in any beauty magazines.


#12 – Death of a Prankster
I love these photos.  A brief moment captured on film where a brides glance says it all.  Whatever he did, he probably will never get the chance to do it again.


#11 -You What?
I’m not sure who forgot to do what, but I’m glad I’m not that person.


Yes folks, it’s the top 10. The worst of the worst. Proceed.

#10 – The Wahhh-ding photo

Not sure if this was an intentional pose for his buddies, but his bride is not amused.


# 9 – The College Bride

The photo that spawned a million punchlines. I’ll let you create your own, because mine will get me fired.


#8 – Yikes
This dress won the Top 10 Sluttiest Wedding Dress award, but also is very fitting for one of the worst photos thanks to her, “They have booze in the limo” pose. Limo – $1000, Champagne – $100,  look on her new mother in law’s face when she gets out of the limo – priceless.


#7 – Lesbian Nudist Wedding
The photo that set equal rights back an entire decade.


#6 – MINE!
If this doesn’t set off red flags for the groom, nothing will.


#5 – Opposites Attract
Sometimes a couple is so perfectly matched that it’s impossible to tell who the lucky one is.  While these two may not be perfectly matched, the latter still holds true.


#4 – The Clown Wedding
If you didn’t have an unnatural fear of clowns, you do now.


#3 – I Can’t Quit You
The bride wasn’t concerned about infidelity, until….


#2 – Ghetto Fabulous
She didn’t like the bridesmaid outfits at first, but it grew on her.  And she worked it.


And here we are folks!

The winner of the worst wedding photo award.

#1 – Duck, Duck, Goose

This picture is still by far my all time favorite because it says so much.  Just, oh my.


And there you have it. The 20 worst wedding photos I could find.  Hopefully when you go to hire your wedding photographers or other wedding vendors, you’ll make sure that you look at each photo before they end up on my list.  Do you have ones to share that I didn’t post here?  Post them!

    I am working on a wedding show with the Style network, and I am wondering if someone can guide me to the contact information of the people from the photos above. Or at the least, if someone can give me’s contact information. Thank you!
