I Now Pronounce You A Weirdo
While every couple has every right to celebrate their happy day as they see fit in this free thinking (cough-capitalist-cough) world of ours, and we whole heartedly approve of unique methods of expressing ones undying love and devotion to ones significant other, the team felt that maybe, just maybe some of these couples were taking it a step too far. Of course, who are we to judge true love- or whatever this is. Valentine’s Day may be far gone, but we felt like spreading the love a little. So here you have it, our pick of the world’s weirdest weddings.
A DC fan’s dreams come true:
As a DC fanatic, it kinda cut me up when Batman and Wonder Woman didn’t end up together. No, she had to be the ultra feminist and go rule her nation of super models (pun fully intended) and he had to hate everything and everyone and end up as a shriveled old man. So seeing this wedding shot of British born Sharon Wetherell and Neil Vaughan really brought a smile to my face (not to mention too many suppressed memories of the good old days when there were only seven members in the JL). Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Robin, Poison Ivy (really?), Lara Croft, the Joker, Bananaman (okay, now we know you’re joking) and the Incredibles were all in attendance.
We only have one question: Where on earth is NightWing? Because if there’s a super villain in attendance (see leafy green lady for reference) and B. Wayne’s first protégé isn’t, you know something’s wrong.
You may now kiss your Ogre bride:
And we thought “Shrek, the Musical” was taking it too far. Tracey and Vivian Williams actually saw “Shrek” on their first date. They loved the characters so much, they actually dressed up as Shrek and the (now ogre) Princess Fiona for their wedding. The guests got in on the fun, with the best man dressing up as Monsieur Hood, the bride’s father going as Lord Farquaad (couldn’t make it in the Frog King costume?) , the bride’s mother playing the Fairy Godmother and the maid of honor playing Snow White. I’m sincerely hoping they did not have a gingerbread wedding cake- the Gingerbread man would never forgive them.
Again though, we are missing a key figure: Where is Donkey?!
The Royal Gatecrasher
I think this one needs no explanation. Because wow. And I mean wow. Ladies and Gents? Kindly watch the video, because I’m at a loss for words here.
Dancing for Joy:
Because there really is no other way to describe the next wedding. The 28-year-olds Kevin Heinz and Jill Peterson floored their wedding guests by having their seven bridesmaids, five groomsmen and four ushers dance down the aisle to the beat of Chris Brown’s “Forever” in a dance routine they choreographed and rehearsed in a little over 90 minutes. But it doesn’t stop there. Convinced their happy day needed to be shared with the world, Heinz then uploaded the video to his YouTube page. The couple is happy, the video went viral, and the rest is history.
When I checked up “World’s weirdest Weddings” on YouTube, I was expecting a lot of madness. And I found plenty of that: from Queen E crashing a wedding, to a Broadway worthy musical performance, to, finally, a divorce. But I couldn’t find anything good enough to end my little piece. Don’t get me wrong, there were a lot of wacky weddings, from a Flintstone themed wedding (come on, I know you want to shout I Yabba Dabba Do!) to a wows taken in a shark tank, to the bride and groom being suspended in the air with hooks and cables inserted in their flesh.
But, in the end, none of them were cool enough, or awesome enough, to end my wedding post.
Until of course, I found this. I was hesitant to put it up. Not only because I certainly do not own the rights to the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise, but also because this really couldn’t happen in real life. (sigh, if only). But in the end, my weird, inner romantic won over my logical side. Because really, when it comes to weird weddings, Will and Elizabeth Turner’s wedding really does take the cake.
There you have it, my tribute to the world’s wackiest, weirdest weddings. So heres to young love and lovers alike: congratulations, I now pronounce you weird.
You may kiss the bride.
Or file for a divorce, whatever floats your boat.
Ps: Yes, that’s the same couple.
No, I don’t know if it’s a prank.
