Epic wedding FAILs are here to both assure you that your own wedding day wasn't that bad and to warn you about the perils that can be associated with a couple's big day. It's been said that anything that can go wrong will, but for these couples, a wedding fail turned out to be not just "something that went wrong" but "something that went HORRIBLY wrong." Whether it's the bride whose wedding dress falls off, the groom who drops the bridesmaid, or the wedding guest who vomits during her speech. . . you can just be glad that you aren't any of these people.  

The best/worst part? Most of these wedding FAILs were caught on video so they will be forever remembered. Wedding dress fails and bride fails are the stuff of legend and now you can watch the proof that these crazy things actually did happen. With wedding season just around the corner, here are the greatest videos of people completely ruining weddings that the Internet has to offer. From brides being set aflame, to DJs fondling the guests, to even groomsmen ruining cars by parachuting onto them, these are the most epic videos of wedding fails of all time. This list has a lot more than just videos where a dress falls down, or off altogether, but it does have the absolute funniest times that anybody has ever failed very hard during a marriage ceremony.   

Drunken Pole Dancer Ruins A Wedding With Her Dancing

This remains one of the greatest videos in internet history.

First of all, there seem to have been some really attractive women at this wedding. If you look at the aftermath, before you see blood streaming down the bride's face, you get a glimpse of some really pretty ladies. This, I think, is the only rational explanation as to why the woman in the red dress felt the need to beg for as much attention as she did at the reception. She clearly wanted to be the center of attention, overshadowing the bride (at least she didn't wear white) by taking over the dance floor. She swung slightly on the pole that was keeping up the tent, and then went ahead and went full-on-stripper. Usually, this is a bad move in general.

I mean socially, what the hell are you even doing pole dancing at a wedding? Well, when this lady started doing this, she brought down the house. Literally.

The video is one minute long but is one of the most shocking and hilariously cringe-worthy moments that you should be glad you didn't live.

The Worst Wedding DJ Ever Presents Phil Collins

Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

The worst wedding DJ of all time started his internet career with the video you see to the left. Not only does he ruin a perfectly good Gloria Estefan song that's fueling a line of white people dancing by singing alone while not knowing the words by any stretch of the imagination, he does it off time.

The first part is fantastic, and the first time anyone ever saw this video, we thought that THIS is what made him the worst Wedding DJ ever, until...

The boob slap.

This man takes a young lady who is at his side, most likely wanting to tell him to get off the stage, or maybe even to request a song (as it does look like the night is winding down at this point) and slaps her breasts using them like the very "congas" that Gloria Estefan is singing about.

The wedding videographer, who documented the whole thing, later overdubbed the wedding DJ "Fast Eddie" (yes, this is what this grown man calls himself) slapping the woman's breasts to the tune of Phil Collins's "In the Air Tonight". Now, if you were to slap a wedding guest's breasts to any part of that song, which part would it be? Yes, it's the part where the drums come in. And it is hilarious. Over 4 million views on YouTube hilarious, apparently.

Funny or Die even did a parody of it.

Worst Wedding DJ Ever from Jerry O'Connell


Either way you cut it, the biggest wedding fail involved in this entire debacle was whoever was in charge of hiring the DJ. Whoever that was messed up terribly. But we, as the internet, thank him for his half-assed and wonderful work finding the first person who came up in the Yellow Pages (because someone who booked "Fast Eddie" must be uninformed enough to actually use the Yellow Pages).


Best Man Ruins Wedding

This internet classic, even though it's fake, is a really, really great wedding fail. Just because a lot of people would put "you missed this!" in the comments, and because it's in the general consciousness here it is (and why it's awesome).

Chloe and Keith's wedding was picture perfect. Chloe looked beautiful, Keith found Khakis that kind of fit him, the sun was shining and both their families were present. As the priest was saying their vows and the videographer was closing up on Chloe's proud, loving and blissful face, they got to the part where she is asked if she will be with Keith as long as they both shall live.

She agrees to do this and the priest asks for the rings. The best man (who clearly wasn't) approached the stage they made with confidence, when his unscored, obviously underused dress shoes caused him to slip on the slick surface.

At first you're worried for the guy who fell on his face, until you notice the bride falling over backwards, ruining not only her dress, but her hair, makeup and day.

You lose all sympathy for the guy as soon as you pause the video and realize that he was actually trying to pick himself back up using the bride.

The bride, not wanting to get her dress dirty, or be pushed off the balcony (which c'mon, they did put at kind of an ill-advised spot) backed up... into the pool.

The priest, ever the hero, tried to catch the guy, he then tried to catch her, but only helped break her fall as he falls into the pool after her.

The whole crowd screams "NO!" and one of the greatest wedding fails of all time made internet history. Over 5 million views to just the original video alone.

Here's the trailer for the independent film Chloe and Keith's Wedding, for which this video was viral marketing:


Bridal Party Piggie-Back Fail

Ah the humorous bridal party entrance. Ever since that annoying video of the bridal party dancing in, this phenomena has become more and more present. Why can't they do what my parent's did when they came into the reception? Look kind of out of breath with their hair and clothes disheveled? (I might need to seek counseling.)
In any case, this bridesmaid and groomsman thought it would be a good idea to do a reverse-piggyback into the room. Sure, she's built like a brickhouse, but it looks like they didn't factor her high heels into the equation. It's basic physics.
