The 7 weirdest, wackiest, and yes — tackiest — wedding dresses we’ve ever seen
It’s brides gone wild! 7 wedding dresses that shock, awe, inspire and surprise. <!–more–>
#1. The painted-on gown
This couple got their near-naked bodies painted for a British television show called Battle of the Brides. And you thought the latest Pnina Tornai gowns were racy.
#2. The YSL Cocoon
The cocoon dress, designed by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965, is one of the most famous bridal couture creations in history. Some say it symbolized the oppressive nature of marriage in the 1960s, while others believe that its phallic shape and the way that it wraps and ties the female figure in ribbons tell a story about women on the verge of the sexual revolution.
#3. A Mixture of Frailties
This dress is a work of art called “A Mixture of Frailties” by British artist Susie MacMurray. It’s made out of 1400 rubber dishwashing gloves turned inside-out.
#4. Glow-in-the-dark Bride
Over 300 LED lights adorn this wedding gown worn by an actual bride on her actual wedding day. Rumor has it there’s an actual YouTube video as well.
#5. The Train to Ganghzou, China
This Chinese groom wanted to give his wife a wedding day she’d never forget, so he contracted a local tailor to make her a wedding dress with a 200-meter-long train.
#6. Pretty as a Peacock
Check out this brightly hued wedding dress that made its debut at a bridal show in Japan. It’s made of over 2,000 peacock feathers, took over 8 months to make, and is valued at $1.5 million.
#7. The Goliath Gown
I wish that we had more information for you about this wedding dress, but all we found was the image. Is it a wedding gown for a giant? A circus bride who walked down the aisle on stilts? We’re not sure, but we know it’s wild!
