30 of the Wackiest Celebrity Wedding Gowns

The wackiest celebrity wedding gowns include some of the tackiest, most colorful, eye-poppingly alarming wedding dresses ever worn. We all know that most celebrities crave attention, right? Well, on their big day, they clearly want to take things to a whole new level, with wacky wedding gowns that simply scream “Look at me! I’m so different! So controversial!” That’s what this list is about: The most seriously screwed up, bizarre, and downright frightening celebrity wedding dresses ever. Celebs are nothing if not colorful, and these weird gowns certainly reflect that fact accurately. In fairness, some of these crazy wedding dresses were worn during second, third, or even fifth weddings (i.e. Elizabeth Taylor, who wore green to her 4th and 6th weddings and yellow to her 5th and 8th), so it would hardly be appropriate for the bride to wear white… but still. Vote for the odd gowns you think are the nuttiest.

Need proof that celebrities make truly crazy wedding dress choices? How about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star June “Mama June” Shannon’s decision to wear a camouflage wedding dress? That’s a thing. Somewhere. In hell. Where the weirdest  wedding dresses of all time are somehow socially acceptable. Strange wedding dresses may be okay in Shannon’s world, but probably not in everyone else’s, as is illustrated by, oh I don’t know, society’s rules. Other interesting choices included “90210” star Shenae Grimes’s black wedding gown. Clearly Grimes was going for the whole “My show is canceled but just look at how relevant and edgy I still am!” look.

Whenever anyone mentions a major celebrity wedding, the first thing many of us want to know is: What did the dress look like? This list is about the times that you truly do not want to know. Look at your own peril, because once you’ve seen these totally wacky wedding gowns of the rich and famous, you cannot unsee them.
