With the wedding season in full swing, many of us are excited to witness how two people venture on a journey together through life. We're eager for elegant ceremonies and magical moments, and we expect to cherish these memories for years to come. But in the real world, weddings are far from the dazzling and perfect affairs many of us imagine. Because you see, some couples seem to go out of their way to show everyone that taste really is a matter of preference.

To prove that some celebrations of love look like anything but fairy tales, members of the 'Trashy' subreddit shared snaps of the wild and tasteless things they’ve ever spotted at a wedding. With the tagline, "All things Trashy!", this online community has set out on a mission to expose the low-class nuptial disasters.

From outrageous invitations to mothers-in-law who turn up in bridal gowns, we at Bored Panda wrapped up a compilation of photos that vividly illustrate how bad things can get. Continue scrolling, upvote the ones you loved hating the most and be sure to share your own stories with us in the comments! And if you think you can handle even more wedding horror stories, check out our earlier publications about nightmare wedding guests and the most shame-worthy wedding examples.

This woman desperately needs a mental health intervention. She obviously has feelings of inadequacy which can only be soothed by constant attention.

Since 2012, the 'Trashy' online group has amassed over 2.8 million members. A few thousand people scroll through the page at any given time and are always on the lookout for some juicy pictures to pop up at the top. The moderators stated that this is a humor subreddit where they forbid bullying or toxic behavior. Moreover, they don’t allow heated discussions about social and political topics, explaining that you’re not going to change the world by arguing in a place where people laugh at drunk people making fools of themselves in public.

According to the moderators, this is a perfect place for people to poke fun at "trashy stories, trashy glamour, all things fake, plastic, and downright trashy, low-class, no-class, white trash, bimbos, and damn proud." Those looking after the page also added that posts on the group need to be funny, and they need to be a celebration of trashiness. "If it makes you angry then it doesn’t belong here," the moderators added.

But this does beg the question, what does trashy actually mean? Well, the internet meme database Know Your Meme stated that the term trashy is used in a derogatory way to describe something extremely low-quality or inappropriate. "It is used as an antonym of 'classy' and typically refers to human behavior that is undesirable. Someone who is considered 'trashy' or behaving in such a manner typically exhibits selfish or grotesque actions with no remorse, especially when being inconsiderate," they explained.

Since the wedding season is here to provide members of this online community with plenty of content, they don’t waste a second and share their hilarious snaps online. Although it’s important to note that taste is subjective — what is trashy to one person may be stylish to another! Moreover, we’re well aware that there is no such thing as a flawless wedding. You may have spent hours meticulously planning your big day, hoping everything to be perfect with a capital P. But the truth is, some things are simply out of your control. Whether it’s the caterer that canceled at the last minute or the ignorant plus ones who drink the open bar dry, some minor mishaps are simply unavoidable.

Allison Jackson, the owner of the Pineapple Productions, mentioned that it’s important to remember that your celebration speaks directly to your heart. "A wedding should be personal and reflective of the couple — their stories, shared interests, family backgrounds, personal styles and travels — versus something built on recycled ideas from other weddings," she explained. "I encourage couples to draw inspiration from the stories of how they met, what they did on their first date, and how they became engaged. It’s easy to find a few details from those stories that naturally translate into fun and unique elements on the wedding day."

Agree with shaming a lot of this, but if a woman doesn't want to wear a bra, no matter what size she is, she shouldn't have to.

Another thing to keep in mind is the people you want to share these unique moments with. "Focus on the touch points that allow guests to be present throughout the weekend," Beth Helmstetter, a creative director at Beth Helmstetter Events advised. "For instance, if your ceremony has the possibility of being too hot or cold, make sure to address those issues with blankets, fans, and water. For the reception, always make sure you have enough servers and bartenders. If guests aren’t able to get a drink or wait too long for their meal, it doesn’t matter how beautiful or fun your wedding is. Guests will be focused on their needs not being met and they won’t be able to enjoy the celebration as you’ve intended them to."

I wonder how valid the vows are, if the groom is too drunk to repeat them, and does it affect the legitimacy of the wedding?

Most importantly, make sure you enjoy the experience and try to have fun! After all, people sometimes see their big day as the final destination when, in reality, it’s only the beginning of a long and exciting journey together. But if some things don’t go as planned, remember there’s always humor to be found in even the most unfortunate situations. So if you have a weird and amusing story to tell, don’t be shy and share your adventures with us in the comments.
