To cringe at this wedding photo in local paper

haggisandneeps Fri 28-Jun-13 16:42:23

Flicking through the local paper and came to the wedding section. 4 couples got married. 3 perfectly normal photos and 1....

I'm not sure I can describe the sheer horror but I will try! The wedding party are all running towards the camera with bride and groom in the middle. 2 of them are looking backwards and some of the party are screaming.

Oh almost forgot! They are running/screaming from the giant T-Rex that's behind them hmm wish I know how to upload photos so you could all marvel at it.

ImAlpharius Fri 28-Jun-13 16:44:29

YABU, it's the best wedding photo ever (if it's the one I've seen on FB).

WhoBU Fri 28-Jun-13 16:44:29

I've seen that and think it'll spawn a cringe-worthy number of copycats, but is an original and fun idea grin

Daft wedding photos always make me laugh.

Not sure it's a good idea to upload someones photo onto MN though.

Squitten Fri 28-Jun-13 16:45:09

X-post!

usualsuspect Fri 28-Jun-13 16:46:15

If it's gone viral, that's ok though.

Like this?

Because it's been a thing for a while and is, quite frankly, awesome.

So much better than the usual boring wedding pics.

haggisandneeps Fri 28-Jun-13 16:46:47

Oh gawd there is more of them!! No that's not it. I'm assuming its a copy cat then hmm

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 28-Jun-13 16:47:08

That's hilarious grin

Thurlow Fri 28-Jun-13 16:47:16

Is it wrong that I'm more interested in the fact that she has 7 bridesmaids? 7!

They should do that for the class photos. Dc would love it.

wem Fri 28-Jun-13 16:51:02

That's completely brilliant, and very well done. I agree there will be a whole host of far less brilliant copies.

VitoCorleone Fri 28-Jun-13 16:51:05

Wow dont think ive ever seen anything so cheesy

Good taste clearly - same colour dresses as I'm having

wem Fri 28-Jun-13 16:51:23

Class photos grin that would be ace.

BlueberryHill Fri 28-Jun-13 16:51:41

Thurlow, that is what I thought.

I love the picture though.

Crowler Fri 28-Jun-13 16:53:09

It's not that unusual to have 7 bridesmaids in the US. For younger brides, pretty normal in my experience.

WeAreEternal Fri 28-Jun-13 16:56:47

YABU, that is brilliant.

fluffyraggies Fri 28-Jun-13 16:57:38

Love it as a first time, never seen it before thing.

It will be copied though, and a bit <yawn> in a few months. Sadly.

I imagine some people will get blown up pics of their own pets chasing them ect. too.

Now THAT would persuade me to part with £13 for the class photo grin

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 28-Jun-13 17:00:18

well at least it's better than the Shrek wedding we had here a few months ago. Bride and groom dressed as Shrek and Princess Fiona and all the guests in Disney fancy dress. That made the bbc too!

RiotsNotDiets Fri 28-Jun-13 17:17:10

Haha I love it!

KatoPotato Fri 28-Jun-13 17:24:27
amazingmumof6 Fri 28-Jun-13 17:33:40

YABU to cringe!

funny photogrin

LilacPeony Fri 28-Jun-13 17:38:11

I can't see that one Kato.

I'd find it really funny if i someone did one with a blown up photo of their pet chasing them. grin

YABU, one went viral and was hilarious so everybody is copying it. I'm very tempted to do similar at my own wedding, it looks like great fun!

Reastie Fri 28-Jun-13 17:41:02

Hilarious!

Gruntfuttock Fri 28-Jun-13 17:43:57

It's extremely silly, so I love it.

Startail Fri 28-Jun-13 17:49:06

Brilliant,

My cousin's photographer did some daft shots of the wedding party walking towards the camera. That's the perfect piss take of them.

StuntGirl Fri 28-Jun-13 19:46:05

The addition of dinosaurs improve anything a million percent. Fact.

flossy101 Fri 28-Jun-13 19:47:17

Wow, brilliant!

ZolaBuddleia Fri 28-Jun-13 19:48:44

I like it! Although I prefer Kato's one...

Anything has to be better than the photograper hanging out of an upstairs window while the bored guests look up at him/her with pained expressions.

onedev Fri 28-Jun-13 20:40:55

I think that's fab - love the idea of it for school class photos if its done well grin

natwebb79 Fri 28-Jun-13 20:54:58

Oh bugger. I got excited when you mentioned 't-rex'. I thought Sharon had got hitched.

Patchouli Fri 28-Jun-13 21:02:34

Oh yes, class photo!
And maybe replace the dinosaur with the teacher

TheCunnyFunt Fri 28-Jun-13 21:03:48

Can anyone tell what the rightmost bridesmaid has got across her shoulders? Looks like a Skunk or something confused

MissBetseyTrotwood Fri 28-Jun-13 21:06:09

Getting ideas Cunny? grin

And a big YY to the class photo. I'd part with the money twice over.

I would SO buy the class photo if it was like that! Got to arrange it now for the end of term ...

BatmanLovesAllan Fri 28-Jun-13 21:11:45

If you think that's cringeworthy, what about this one?

TheCunnyFunt Fri 28-Jun-13 21:24:27

Possibly Betsey, I showed it to DP and he thought it was awesome smile personally I quite like the idea of having a giant Sprocket lumbering after everyone grin

MissBetseyTrotwood Fri 28-Jun-13 21:31:35

Ha ha I'm going to show it to DH when he gets home from work tomorrow morning. Almost worth renewing our vows or something for I reckon. grin

Arf @ giant dog!

Oldraver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:38:19

I think it would better with battleaxe MIL in the background.

I think its an improvement on the dreamy 'shot through gauze' shots my MIL said would of been nice had they not been blurred grin

WafflyVersatile Fri 28-Jun-13 22:11:19

That's brilliant.

You are not allowed to cringe.

GiveMumABreak Fri 28-Jun-13 22:15:51

kato love it!!

batman you GOT me with a TWC sad grin

woopsidaisy Fri 28-Jun-13 22:21:34

Oh my dear lord Batman.
MY EYES!!!!!
grin

Alconleigh Fri 28-Jun-13 23:03:20

dear lord, when will people realise no one gives a shiny shit about their wedding photos, no matter how 'unique' they are?

kitnkaboodle Fri 28-Jun-13 23:14:37

Am I the only one who thinks this isn't even a real wedding photo?? Look at the state of them all, for goodness' sake - they're all gorgeous (ie models) - no?

sashh Sat 29-Jun-13 02:09:10

Hang on, I thought we were prepping for zombies, not T-rex.

Love the cowboy boots.

TheCunnyFunt Sat 29-Jun-13 11:09:21

I thought that too Kit, it's still good though!

BatmanLovesAllan Sat 29-Jun-13 12:54:55

grin

GiddyStars Sat 29-Jun-13 13:02:54

Batman angry you got me! grin

I love the t-rex photo. I can't advocate enough the use of dinosaurs in wedding albums all over the world. Amazing.

VianneFox Sat 29-Jun-13 20:32:03

Oh I love it actually grin

squoosh Sat 29-Jun-13 22:29:13

I thought the original T Rex photo was brilliant, I mean who wants to look at a boring photo of people looking into each other's eyes?

But it's a bit cringey that other people are now copying it. Have some originality people!

squoosh Sat 29-Jun-13 22:31:36

LOVE the Marj and Homer wedding photo, very ummmmm, homemade and 'rustic'.

dementedma Sat 29-Jun-13 22:32:24

I love it. Far better than our traditional boring ones

morethanpotatoprints Sat 29-Jun-13 22:35:49

Ah, what a lovely picture. They look so happy and its obviously what they wanted.
I think if you like this type of thing there's nothing wrong with copying it, most things have been done before anyway.

I think thats hilarious

Gonnabmummy Sun 30-Jun-13 00:05:56

I think it's brill!

HoneyDragon Sun 30-Jun-13 00:13:37

Alconlrigh as long as I'm around they won't. I LOVE wedding pics.

WhiteBirdBlueSky Sun 30-Jun-13 00:18:32

I'd think it hilarious if one of my friends spontaneously did that.

SconeRhymesWithGone Sun 30-Jun-13 05:40:03

It's not that unusual to have 7 bridesmaids in the US.

And this picture is from the South. Seven is actually pretty conservative for a big Southern wedding 'cause your mamma makes you have all your first cousins whether you want to or not. wink

Jengnr Sun 30-Jun-13 06:18:26

I would never have been able to run like that in my wedding dress. My boobs would have been out and I'd have fallen flat on my face! Kudos to the bride!

In the event of a dinosaur attack I'd have been toast! smile

I love it though.

exoticfruits Sun 30-Jun-13 06:22:33

I was expecting to cringe but I really liked it.

itsallshitandmoreshit Sun 30-Jun-13 06:51:54

I love it! It's original and fun. Brilliant idea.

More than a fair sprinkle of po on this thread smile

I think it's funny. Much better than the bloody cheesy love hearts and sparkles. I wish I'd done something like that.

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Sun 30-Jun-13 08:50:25

I like it.

It's better to have fun with it than to do 20 'duck face while gazing into his eyes as he leans against a tree' pics or be so uptight about your Perfect Day that you get someone to ensure every blade of grass is the same height or you have a nervous breakdown when you get the photos back and realise one of the bridesmaids was 1/8th of a mm out of position.

Alconleigh Sun 30-Jun-13 09:16:26

Just me being a grump then, fair enough! It's just with wedding photos, either I was there, in which case I don't need to see pictures of it, or I wasn't there because we're not close enough for me to have been invited, in which case why would I care about the photos?
