This dress was supposed to look absurd, so it’s obvious the costume designer went the extra mile to ensure it’s as outrageous as possible. Still, can you imagine walking down the aisle in this piece of ruffled insanity?

Betsy's Wedding is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The Worst TV And Movie Wedding Dresses

We get that Betsy is an offbeat fashion student, but this is a disaster of a wedding outfit. A top hat? High-low construction? Cowboy boots? The fashion police would certainly label this as faux-paux.

In one of the last episodes of the beloved sitcom, Golden Girl Dorothy decides to marry Lucas Hollingsworth. It's a sweet, soft wedding that leads to a beautiful finale in which our favorite girls part ways, but that dress? It may have been attractive if not for the bizarre ruffly neckline that distracts from the otherwise elegant lacy top.

The Hottie and the Nottie is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Worst TV And Movie Wedding Dresses

Where do we start with this one? The extravagant silhouette? The puff sleeves? The multi-tiered skirt with embellished three-dimensional flowers? Whichever way you look at it, it’s a fashion disaster. Luckily, Cristabel only wears the dress for a costume party, but still.
