Wacky, tacky and weird: Celebrity wedding dresses [SLIDESHOW]

Here comes the bride. All dressed in … pink? Hollywood’s golden girl, Reese Witherspoon channeled her “Legally Blonde” character’s style when she walked down the aisle on March 26. The blond actress said “I do” to her beau, Jim Toth, in a custom-designed Monique Lhuillier blush-hued gown with a Chantilly lace corset bodice and full tulle A-line skirt. The gown was gorgeous, but the fairy-tale frock might’ve been better suited for Barbie than 35-year-old Witherspoon.

The A-list actress is not the first celebrity to make a daring but disastrous wardrobe choice on her big day. Take a look as TheDC reviews the wackiest celebrity wedding dresses of all-time. We’re surprised these ghastly gowns didn’t send the groom running away in horror. Maybe love really is blind.

  • It’s always a bad sign when a wedding guest mistakes the bride for the wedding cake. Pop star Christina Aguilera looked like a tube of whip cream when she said ‘I do’ to Jason Bratman in 2007.  Future brides: don’t buy a dress that makes you look edible.
  • Celine Dion took the definition of diva to entirely new heights when she wed Rene Angelil in 1994. It took 1,000 hours to complete this Mirella and Steve Gentile silk creation, complete with a 20-foot train. The singer also donned a 7-pound Swavorski crystal tiara that had to be sewn in to her head. Yes, sewn. It’s a shame she went through all that hassle and ended up looking like an alien drag queen.
  • Gwen Stefani looks like she accidentally walked in an enormous puddle of pink paint on the way to her wedding. The Christian Dior designed dress aimed to combine tradition with fantasy, but the flamboyant flair ruined the otherwise beautiful dress
  • We have three words for Mariah Carey: Less is more. The songstress looked like a giant marshmallow as she floated down the aisle and said ‘I do’ to Columbia records exec, Tommy Mottola in 1993. Mariah, the eighties are over—time to deflate.
  • Nicole Kidman looked more like a pilgrim than a princess when she and Urban tied the knot in 2006. If it weren’t for Keith Urban’s blond highlights, I would’ve guessed this photo was taken sometime in the eighteenth century.
  • Can someone please get Britney some pants? This “dress,” donned by Spears during her wedding reception, should’ve been about three sizes bigger and seven inches longer.
  • Nothing says ‘tacky’ quite like getting hitched on a boat wearing a string bikini. Pamela  Anderson channeled her infamous ‘Baywatch’ character when she wed a shirtless Kid Rock in 2006 wearing only a white string bikini on a “booze cruise” in St. Tropez.
  • In 2003, Actress Danielle Spencer wed Russell Crowe in this Armani gown that glistened with over 10,000 clear Swavorski crystals. The dress is beautiful, with the exception of one, gigantic mistake: that slit. We just have one question—how did she sit down without giving everyone a little show? Yuck.
  • Jada Pinkett-Smith must’ve had a tough time breathing when she exchanged vows with hubby, Will Smith. The tiny star wore this skin-tight, lace, turtleneck dress that just looks… uncomfortable.
  • Yes, there is a thing as too much fabric. Pop singer and self-proclaimed bad girl, Pink exchanged vows with professional motocross racer, Carey Hart in this billowing pile of satin. The singer looked as though she was wearing a tablecloth, or maybe a curtain, but definitely not a wedding dress. The long black ribbon and matching black headband made the already unfortunate dress a bona fide trainwreck.
  • British star Katie Price, also known as Jordan, takes the cake, (pun intended,) for the worst celebrity wedding of all-time. Price was determined to have the longest wedding dress on record, so she ensured her pink, satin monstrosity was 2,700 feet long. The glittery tiara is the perfect accessory to this tacky trainwreck of a wedding dress. It’s a bad sign if you look like an X-rated version of Glinda the Good Witch on your wedding day.
  • Newly married Reese Witherspoon graces the cover of this week’s People Magazine in her cotton candy colored wedding gown. It’s cute to dream about getting married in a pink dress when you’re six years old, but it’s an entirely different thing to actually do it. This isn’t a Disney movie, Reese. Cinderella wants her dress back!

    everytime I read an “article” like these, i feel sorry!

    really. aren’t we just full of everyday media crap? telling us how to act, what to speak, who we should go out? 
    do you honestly think it’s right to follow some ‘good sense wedding manners’ about how you’re gonna dress on your own wedding? 
    those people are famous, so it’s really easy for us to go out and judge. they will not gonna see us, and they are expose (not into that talk about how famous people know they’re gonna be judge all the time).
    it’s really easy, cause you go out everyday, put your clothes and think you rock with all your society manners way of dressing! i truly bet you don’t dress well. 
    and I’m not telling this cause I believe theres a RIGHT way to dress, but I’m saying cause, to me, someone who writes an article about how lame someone else wedding dress was, really dont dress for urself, but for the others. 
    and let me tell you something, if you chose your clothes by someone else parameter, you don’t put any personality on it, so… what’s the point?

    not everyone should care about clothing, or the fashion lame industry. there are a lot of others things more important than that in life. 
    not everyone seek to be the most original one when they wake up and look for their wardrobe trying to look unique as hell. 
    i got that! 

    and I got the idea too, that i just wrote a comment about how someone else care so much about what another person is wearing, and I come here, and do the same! if i feel so sorry about this, i shouldnt even care. 

    but, if we can speak for ourselves, i feel free to comment here, and say that internet is for everyone, but let’s not try to make this one of our selfish neighbors who doesnt have anything to do than speak bad things about everyone. 
    try to be more open and not that mediocre! 

    ps: sorry about the english, but it’s not my first language!
