Top 5 Craziest Weddings
The wedding day should be one of the happiest days for both bride and groom, but while couples around the world are spending money and planning how to make their weddings perfect and pleasant, there are people who simply want an extraordinary wedding. And by extraordinary we mean – the craziest and most outrageous wedding in the world. Here are the Craziest weddings that are really not what you’d expect to see on such family gathering.
#1. Bride had 110 bridesmaids
Of course she set a record with the number of her bridesmaids. People have that much guest on their wedding usually, but not the bride from Proctorville, Ohio, who broke the record with more than 100 bridesmaids at her wedding. Jill Stapleton, who owns a dance school, asked her students (all 110 of them) to be her bridesmaids and walk down the aisle at her wedding. The bride asked each girl to choose her own dress for the wedding in either purple or teal, which by the way were the school’s colors. Every bridesmaid carried a single rose. The previous record for the most bridesmaids in a wedding was 90. A bit crowded, but at least there were no sad girlfriends of the bride.
#2. A bride from China wore 200 meters long veil in order to set a record
Well some brides want world fame on their wedding day. The bride from Guangzhou, China, set the world’s longest bridal train record for sure. She accented her gown with a train that was over 200 meters long that weighed over 100 kilograms. According to Guinness, the longest wedding dress train measured 1362m was created by Andreas Evstratiou in Paphos, Cyprus, in February 2007. Too bad she didn’t break the record, but she for sure had the most unique gown among her friends.
#3. Groom decorated his car with 99,999 roses because he wanted to surprise his bride
Groom Xiao Wang spent his one year salary on buying 99,999 red roses for his bride, Xiao Liu, for their wedding. In China the number 999 is considered to be a good luck omen. The couple, needed 30 cars to take the flowers to the service. The flowers themselves were flown in from the other side of the country. The groom ordered the special roses his fiancé really loved and he truly was happy when he saw her surprised reaction. The groom donated 20% of the cost of the roses to charity believing it would bring good luck in his marriage.
#4. Woman married her dead fiancé at the morgue
Michelle Thomas was the woman who decided to “marry” her murdered fiancé in a hospital morgue. The man was battered with an iron bar in a gruesome gang attack while working away from home to raise money for his wedding to Michelle. Nine men attacked him and beat him to death on his way home. But even death could not keep him and Michelle apart. She was heartbroken, but still decided to organise a “wedding” in the morgue of Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital, where Kevin, her fiancé lie dead. The touching ceremony was conducted by the hospital’s Catholic priest who administered the last rites to Kevin. In front of an open coffin, the priest blessed the wedding rings that Michelle had bought for the service. Their two children went to their father’s funeral wearing the clothes they were supposed to wear to their parents’ wedding. The priest asked Michelle if she would have taken Kevin to be her “lawful wedded husband” and she replied “I do”. Kevin’s father placed a ring on Michelle’s finger and a ring was placed on Kevin’s finger as he lie in the coffin. Heartbreaking though a little bit creepy and over the edge, don’t you think?
#5. The naked wedding
All that stress around picking the most beautiful wedding dress and elegant tuxedo made this couple decide go nude on their wedding. Also this wasn’t a small or extra private wedding; there were 250 guests. Ellie Barton and Phil Hendicott from Australia exchanged vows wearing nothing more than their wedding rings – and a bouquet of strategically-placed roses. Mrs. Ellie Hendicott wore a white, painted on “dress” and the only thing she really wore besides the bouquet was a long white wedding veil. Phil Hendicott wore nothing but a black top hat to cover his private parts. The wedding ceremony was conducted in the morning, live on FM radio to hundreds of thousands of Australians. They surely are popular now.
