Choosing a wedding dress is tough for any woman. However, eventually, we have to settle on our perfect dress, or at least the closest to it we can afford. This woman did not settle for anything less than what she actually wanted, that’s for sure. It just so happens that the dress wasn’t quite what people were expecting.
A dress to last a lifetime
While everyone knows that the dress may well only be worn once, it doesn’t stop brides from wanting to have the best of the best. Some women prefer something simple, whether it’s no-frills, no fuss, or elegant A-line.
However, some people are all about ‘bigger is better’, and who can blame them? If you’re the kind of person who loves extravagance, then you’re going to make sure your wedding day is precisely that.
One woman posted her dress for sale
One woman went viral after she posted her wedding dress online. She had had her special day, wearing the dress to its very limit. However, she knew she no longer needed the gown, and decided to sell it on.
The dress was one-of-a-kind. She was hoping that it would catch the eye of another like-minded bride. What she didn’t anticipate, however, was the onslaught of online reactions that would follow her online advertisement.
Sharing her day on social media
It’s pretty standard for most people these days to share their special moments on social media. Of course, this bride did precisely the same thing. The danger of posting everything on social media without keeping strict privacy settings is that people can see anything they want.
Most people know this, and are happy with it until something goes wrong. This bride had no idea that her wedding dress was going to go viral, and that hundreds or even thousands of people would be looking at the pictures of her wedding day.
Unique in every way
The wedding dress was quite alarming to some people. Fashion standards always seem to control people’s opinions, since people were slamming this bride for her choice of wedding dress, and the style she was going for.
However, back in the day, the bigger the dress, the better. These days, people tend to go for something a little more understated, or at least not four times bigger than the woman herself. However, a wedding dress should be personal to the bride.
No rhinestone left unturned
The dress featured a whole load of unique designs that adorned almost every inch of the gown. The bride had chosen to have rhinestones sewn into the entire skirt of the dress as well as trailing up to the bodice. It also featured an off-the-shoulder design, adorned with fabric flowers.
The back design on the dress was unique, as it continued the rhinestones, as well as pearls, to cross over the bride’s back in a jeweled, backless design. Safe to say, nothing about this dress was designed to be understated.
A bouquet to match
The bride also decided she was going to match her bouquet to her dress since it had various pink motifs making it stand out. Safe to say, the flowers matched perfectly, and somehow added to the grandeur of the gown, making it seem far more extravagant.
It certainly doesn’t look like something out of this century, that’s for sure, but this woman wanted this dress for her dream wedding. However, people couldn’t comprehend why someone would want something so impractical.
It got posted in a wedding-shaming group
Weddings seem to have been getting out of hand in recent years, with more focus on the grandeur of the day, rather than the couple involved. The term ‘bridezilla’ was coined for brides who seem to make ridiculous demands of friends, family, and everyone in between, before and during the wedding.
Through this, wedding shaming groups were born, providing a safe space for people to laugh and joke about weddings that seem stranger than usual, or are just outright ridiculous.
How does she sit down?
The post focused on the practicalities of the dress. After all, it was so thick and large, how did the bride think she was going to sit down in it? It, of course, spurred on a torrent of comments, ranging from innocent questions to outright insults.
The post got so much attention, it had nearly 1,000 people interact with it. There were some unfortunate comparisons with the dress that some people found so hilarious they couldn’t help themselves.
It looks like a toilet roll cover
One person likened the dress to an old fashioned toilet roll cover, and we must admit, the resemblance is strangely familiar. Of course, the toilet roll cover is supposed to be an adorable dress, so maybe it’s a compliment?
Okay, we won’t go that far, but the comparison was met with other people agreeing that that’s exactly what it resembled in their opinion. When you see them side-by-side, it’s difficult to unsee it. It didn’t end there.
Did the wedding have a theme?
Many people commented that the dress looked as if it was something from the French Revolution, like something Marie Antoinette would have worn. Had this bride worn this dress a couple of hundred years ago, she would have been admired by people everywhere.
As it stands, it seems this woman’s dress was a few hundred years too late, and it didn’t quite have the desired ‘wow’ reaction that many brides dream of. Perhaps the wedding was Marie Antoinette themed?
Is it a cake too?
One person commented that it’s quite clearly a wedding dress and cake rolled into one, and sarcastically mentioned how the bride has obviously saved herself some money. Of course, that would be quite impressive if it were true, or maybe even stranger?
However, it’s easy to see how the frills and flowers might look like those of an extravagant wedding cake, after all, there are probably many tiers to that dress. We dread to think how much it would have cost; we doubt she would have saved any money.
Barbie dream wedding
Comments came tumbling in, each more relative and creative as the last. One person claimed it looked as if her Barbie wedding dream had come true. After all, if you’ve been dreaming of your wedding day since you were a little girl, it makes sense that you would want to have it themed as such.
Some people admired the woman for doing exactly what she wanted. After all, not many people would have had the confidence to pull off their dream wedding if it didn’t fit into societal values, but this woman couldn’t care less.
Everyone wants to know how
Everyone wants to know how this woman pulled it off. When you really look at the dress, there’s no way it was easy to get through all that material when she needed to use the bathroom. Did the bride employ her tiny bridesmaids to help her hoist everything up?
Perhaps she had one of those bag or net things underneath her dress, so she could pull it over all the material and use the bathroom in peace. We’re not sure there is a bag big enough, however.
It must have been a big wedding car
The dress is extremely wide, a fashion design used to make the woman’s waist look tiny, and it certainly works! However, this dress undoubtedly spans a wide circumference, so it’s a wonder that the frock would fit in a regular wedding car.
She would have needed an awful lot of help to hoist everything in, or perhaps they specifically hired a suitable vehicle to transport this extreme dress. Many brides struggle in regular-sized dresses, so this is no small feat.
Not the only one
There have been plenty of wedding dress fails in the past, or at least dresses that haven’t gone down well with other people. In the spirit of having her dream wedding, this woman decided she wanted to go as something out of ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
However, it looks more like her dress is swallowing her new husband up whole. The frock takes up practically the entire carriage, and certainly does not look like a dress that makes it easy to access the bathroom.
This woman looks more like she’s about to perform on stage or on some kind of movie set than she is attending her own wedding. Of course, every bride is allowed to wear the dress of her dreams, but it’s as if most of the dress is missing on this one.
People have claimed it looks as if the bride got into a fight with a bear before attending the wedding, since the dress looks as if it’s been jaggedly ripped.
Pop goes the dress
We can’t help but admire this bride’s original spirit, however it just seems like something is fundamentally wrong with this wedding dress. For one thing, it’s made entirely out of balloons, and it wouldn’t take a lot for the dress to go ‘pop’!
We wonder if it was some kind of budget option since balloons are less expensive than a dress, perhaps? Or maybe the novelty and exclusivity of making a balloon wedding dress would drive the price up. Who knows?
Light it up
The gown itself is a pretty standard dress and a very popular design that has been favored since the early 2000s. However, there is a pretty obvious twist to this dress, and that’s that the dress is surrounded with lights to literally light this gown up.
They’re quite bright, which has made people think that perhaps this is more of a fire hazard than a fantastic and original idea. It also looks kind of strange. Well, the bride will definitely be the center of attention.
This poor bride probably got confused between the wedding dress section and the evening wear section. Or perhaps she thought it didn’t matter – it was her day, and she could wear whatever she wanted.
Of course, she would be right, considering she managed to walk down the aisle wearing a white lace corset and some strange puffy skirt. She would undoubtedly have been turning heads, that’s for sure. You never know, maybe it was a clever way of saving money on wedding lingerie.
Talking about themes
This woman shows how fashion standards have massively changed. To most people now, it would seem strange, and almost unthinkable to wear a wedding dress like this, yet this was fashionable and acceptable back in the ’80s.
The veil or headdress she is wearing is like nothing you see at your average wedding these days, but was the chosen article of clothing for this bride who wanted extravagance and tulle. Her bouquet is pretty timeless, at least.
I want to be a flower
You know, all some people ever want to do is become a beautiful flower, and why shouldn’t anyone be able to do that on their wedding day? Well, thankfully, this woman realized her dreams pretty early on, and decided she would do just that.
She must have had it made specially, since it’s unlike anything we, or most other people for that matter, have ever seen before. Well, as long as this couple is happy together, that’s all that matters.
It’s a running theme
While people may have thought the original dress was rather large and puffy, little did they know that she was not the only one! In fact, many people have been known to prefer the larger variety of dress, and who can blame them if that’s what they want?
This woman decided she wouldn’t be the only one, however, and decided she would include all of her bridesmaids when it came to the style. It might not be most people’s taste, but it works for these guys.
