Many girls dream about their wedding dress long before they even reach puberty. More often than not, the excitement follows them through adulthood all the way until the big day. And when said moment comes, they want everything to be perfect. This most certainly includes the dress. They will try on hundreds of dresses in the hope of finding the one that makes them feel like their most beautiful self. Granted, each woman has a different version of their most beautiful self. But sometimes, their choices are so far from the conventional and completely off the reservation that guests are a little more than surprised. But in the end, when it comes to a wedding, nothing is off limit, as long as the couple is happy. Nevertheless, here are some serious head-scratchers.
20. Real life Shrek and Fiona
These two Shrek fans decided to get married as a real-life version of the adorable green monsters. Far Far Away never seemed closer and these two have their fairy tale wedding.

This woman was for sure a little girl dreaming about becoming a princess. Well, she came quite close to making it a reality for a big day.
16. Ready for the festivities
We would just love to know the story behind this dress. But if that’s impossible, then please, please just tell us how the hell did she sit down.
15. What traditions?
Tradition is not for everyone. This couple certainly did not follow any rules they did not want to. They customized their wedding day to fit their personalities. Good for them!
14. Is there such a thing as overdoing it?
This lovely bride wanted to make her special day memorable for everyone. And with a train this long, she is certain to have made an impression on everyone on her way to the altar.
13. A foodie’s big day
This happy couple gave a whole new meaning to the term “food lovers”. It seems that the ceremony will start and end with a pièce montée.
12. Gangster matrimony
Even gangsters can get romantic. This couple brought their own unique style by spray-painting their clothes for a fusion of street style and tradition.
11. The hunt for a perfect wedding
While some brides want to make a serious splash, it seems that others just want to blend in the background.
10. Cacti lover
This young woman here adores cacti and wanted to include her beloved plants into her big day. A strange, somewhat peculiar dress was the result of her quest for wedding style.
9. Nightmare before marriage
We have to give it to them. This Calaca themed wedding must have required a lot of work and the result is impressive.
8. Team Edward vs. Team Jacob
This bride wasn’t scared to express their interest and really break conventions. And while she couldn’t decide between Edward and Jacob, she is lucky to have a husband that doesn’t mind.
7. (Un)holy union
Who says hardcore rockers can’t get married. Although we don’t know what kind of impression these demonic horns had on the priest, we are sure that as long as these two are in love, the man above doesn’t mind.
6. A Christmas wedding
Usually, people tend to get engaged on Christmas day, not married. Usually, brides don’t literally wear the Christmas tree.
5. This must be a serious fairy tale
Frills are one of those things that must be done in moderation. But when it’s your wedding day and you want to go all in, who can tell you otherwise. And while you’re at it, why not make it a bigger than life fairytale and through in and an over-the-top tiara.

These two landlubbers did their pirate themed wedding the right way, by going all out.
3. A lit wedding
Why do we automatically know what this woman’s and her fiance’s cars look like?
2. A personalized cake
We’re pretty sure that this was only made for a magazine and treated as art. But judging by the previous photos, we never know.
1. A champagne dress
More in more people opt for dresses that are not exactly white. Champagne is therefore a rather common colour when it comes to wedding dresses. Therefore, we are sure that this is not what people expected when this bride told people she opted for a champagne dress. Who knew she’d take it so literally.
