WATCH: Worst wedding day FAILS!

So the big day is around the corner and you're feeling a bit nervous? Don’t fret!

We are here to show you a few things that could go wrong on your special day and that you should probably try and avoid. But remember, accidents happen with or without months of planning. So if something does go wrong on your wedding day - and trust me, something will - then remember to laugh it off.

Besides, it can't be worse than these disasters. We hope!

Tip 1: Always make sure to invest in a mattress for the pre-proposal period. You know, just in case you need to ‘rest’ in-between the popping of the question.


If your boyfriend gets swept away by his romantic gesture,
a life-boat would be ideal.

Tip 2: It would be wise to employ a 'professional ring bearer' for this occasion. Your sisters toddler might decide to have a bad day on your big day. 

Tip 3: Try not to piggy-back ride your groom. As far as wedding entrances go, I would prefer twerking down the isle rather than letting my face land flat on the ground. OUCH...

Looks like this bride might need to add corrective surgery to her wedding directory.

Tip 4: Since you have decided to do the traditional bride theme, ALWAYS make sure your wedding skirt is firmly secured to its bodice.

Unless you want to flash your entire wedding party! Oh, how this incident will burn into your mother-in-law's brain.

Tip 5: Make sure your husband's best man wears rubber shoe soles or else he might just break his neck on his way to the altar, and drag you with him.

Tip 6: If your going to have a photo session along the seaside, don't chose to do it during high tide.


Don't be that one bride convinced that she might be a mermaid.

Finally, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a beautiful playful bride. Just make sure you don't trip and fall. Getting blood out of a white gown is just a nightmare...

If I were flexible enough, I would not only double facepalm this but footpalm it as well. Eish!
