Russia has a reputation for being a little different from the rest of the world. This applies to weddings as well and while the rest of the world might cherish romance and love at weddings, the Russians have a way of bringing out humor and drunken personalities. This means that the wedding pictures that come out are quite funny and creative too. In order to bring real Russian Weddings to the rest of the world, we have compiled a list of these awkward pictures from Russian weddings that are so bad that they’re good.
The Love For Watermelon
This groom loves watermelon and on his wedding day, he was busy enjoying a watermelon while the photographer was taking pictures. The bride had other ideas for the watermelon.
The Family Portrait
Sometimes, the Russians tend to eat a lot and they tend to expand around the waist. This means that they cannot all fit into the family portraits. This photographer found a way to get everyone into the frame.
Releasing Doves At The Wedding
While most couples would release live doves on their wedding day, this Russian couple decided to go one step further and release ready-to-cook doves.
Keeping Your Man
This woman knows how to keep her man. She knows that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and she intends to keep his mouth full with bread all throughout their marriage.
Time Of Her Life
The wedding day is usually the day when the bride gets everything that she wants. However, it seems like this bride was not happy with the man playing the accordion at her wedding.
The Genie Groom
This is an amazing wedding picture and the bride seems to have found the love of her life at the bottom of the bottle, showing off the Russian love for alcohol.
This is another Russian couple who decided to get their wedding picture photoshopped. This time around, they wanted the bodies of horses attached to their human torsos. It’s quite hard to understand the minds of the Russians sometimes.
Defying Gender Stereotypes
These two Russian couples decided that it was time to stop conforming to gender stereotypes. The weird thing is getting the pictures taken while peeing.
Keeping Up With Traditions
This Russian couple wanted to keep with the traditions but they also wanted to have the wedding outdoors. They decided to enlist the help of some friends to hold up a carpet.
Keeping Her In The Pocket
This couple decided to get their wedding picture photoshopped and they got it done in a hilarious way. The husband was going to take care of all the expenses and he showed it in the wedding picture as well.
The First Dance
While most couples around the world would sway to a slow song for their first dance as husband and wife, this Russian couple did not. The bride decided to dominate the dance floor with some sick moves.
You Have To Ask Why
We understand that couples like to get creative with their wedding pictures in order to get a unique result but this is just pointless and you have to wonder what was going through this couple’s minds.
No More Children
If the bride takes the shot, the couple can expect a childless marriage. The groom looks so scared knowing that in any moment, he could experience unimaginable pain.
No One Else For Them
This couple wanted to make sure that no one would interfere in their marriage at any point in time so they decided to get some assault rifles and ‘shoot’ everyone around them.
This seems to be a rather weird Russian take on the movie Tangled and the princess Rapunzel. Instead of her hair, this man used a zipline.
Reproducing The Painting
This bride has a good sense of humor and she has learnt to laugh at herself. The couple decided to bring in some humor and reproduce the painting of a large elephant.
Bodies In The Trunk
This Russian couple decided to go a little gangster with their wedding picture, getting it taken while they were in the trunk of a car. If the kid was to bury the bodies, she would only need a shovel.
Starting Off With A Fight
This couple knows that their marriage will be an endless battle so they decided to kick it off with a little inspiration from Mortal Kombat.

Excited For The Wedding
This was right after the woman had said yes to marrying the guy and they were so excited that they didn’t care who was watching.
A Strong Man Indeed
This bride has done the right thing and married a very strong man. As a married couple, they will never have the problem of being stuck in a traffic jam.
After The Vodka
This will be your vision at a Russian wedding after a few shots of Vodka. You know there is going to be vodka at the wedding since it is a joining of two Russian families.
The Star Of The Day
The person who edited this picture has a very creative mind and decided to make sure that everyone who saw the picture knew who was the star of the day.
Not The Best Shot
This is not the best wedding picture but since it is a Russian wedding, you know that people are going to be drunk and that would have an effect on the wedding pictures too.
Damsel In Distress
This couple got very creative with their wedding pictures. Here the groom seems to be saving the bride from the evil dragon. He seems to have quite the arsenal with him.
Why would someone put miniature versions of themselves in their wedding picture? And why would they put themselves in a wooden bucket?
Playing With The Missus
This is a rather weird one. The picture has been edited to show the groom playing the violin but instead of the violin, he is holding his wife.
The Horrible Dress
The bride does not seem to have thought out her wedding dress since it seems to be a huge wardrobe malfunction, especially in the pose that she is sitting.
Everyone wants to have a wedding that is straight out of a fairy tale. And then there is this Russian couple who wanted to have a wedding picture taken on the Dreamworks logo.
Walking Down The Aisle
This Russian woman wanted her dad to walk her down the aisle but he was too tiny. So, they had to improvise and bring in a jetpack.
The Train Of Love
This train looks like fun since it is being led by a centaur. While the bride seems to be walking slowly in heels, the guys at the back seem to be in a run.
Witnessing True Love
This man has witnessed the love of these two Russians and he has apparently lost an eye because of it. He is so stressed out by what he has witnessed that he needed a smoke to deal with it.
Shot With Love
This bride has established her dominance by showing everyone who the boss is by shooting her husband with a cannon.
Babies Come From Here
This guy was freaking out when he was shown where babies come from. He never expected babies to come into the world in cabbages.
The Bunny Is In Danger
This Russian couple decided to reproduce the scene from Saw and the husband seems to be wanting to play the game. It seems in order to save the bunny, the bride has to marry the guy.
Floating In The Sky
And when you want to fly around the world but do not want to spend a lot of money, you can always do it like this Russian couple who decided to float around the world with a bunch of balloons.
This is a rather poorly edited picture since the shark just looks so unrealistic in this picture. Another problem that we have with the picture is that the guy is in jeans on his wedding day.
Marrying For Food
This Russian bride has a look of longing in her eyes and it seems like it’s for the food in front of her. A wedding day can be quite stressful for a bride and food can help.
Toasting To The Marriage
This is the perfect wedding toast. The toast is so lovely that the bride and the groom seem to be rising up from the glasses and gazing into each other’s eyes with extreme affection. Just another example of how much the Russians love their alcohol.
This groom has found the perfect way to jump over all the obstacles in his life. He starts doing that by jumping over his wife in the wedding pictures.

One Last Check
This bride wants to make one last check on the guy that she is marrying to make sure that she is making the right choice. It is important and the vodka in the hand of the groom just makes things more Russian.
All About The Bride
This bride wanted her husband to know that the wedding day was all about her. In order to get the message through, she asked the photographer to blur out the groom and just keep herself in focus.
Most people have shaky legs before the wedding ceremony but this groom still seems to be nervous about something and his legs seem to be going in all directions.
This couple have only just got married and are starting to play games. We just hope that their love for each other is as strong as the concrete ball they seem to be throwing around.
A Confusing Picture
There are so many confusing things in this picture of the Russian couple at their wedding. Why is there a bed and a statue in this picture? Why is the groom dancing to the tunes played by the bride?
The Cute Groomsmen
When you do not have enough friends to be your groomsmen at your wedding, you can always do what this Russian man did and get Skipper, Private and Rico to be your groomsmen.
Surfing On High Tides
This is how unrealistic Russian wedding pictures can get. The couple seems to be enjoying a surf on a wave but without a surfboard under them. Instead, they chose to have a car edited into the picture.
When She Is An Angel
Most husbands treat their wives like they are angels. However, this husband took things too literally and got the photographer to edit his wife to be an actual angel.
Grass Is Greener
This Russian couple was breaking all stereotypes that married life is not as happy as it is portrayed. They stood on a green stem of grass and showed that the grass is greener on the side of marriage.
The Small Photographer
Apparently this Russian couple could not find a tall photographer and they had to settle for a short one. This meant that everyone was hunched over in the wedding pictures so they could get into the frame.
The Miniature Russians
This seems to be the norm for Russian weddings. We can only wonder what the obsession is with being small.
The Car Is More Important
This Russian couple wants to emphasize the fact that the car is more important to them since they have given it more room in the wedding picture.
The Russian grooms also seem to have an obsession with hiding under the bride’s gown.
This Russian couple wanted a frame from Snapchat to be there in their wedding pictures. They decided to improvise with a bunch of logs.
Someone needs to tell the bride that hitchhiking does not work in this way and trains do not stop for hitchhikers. The groom seems frustrated with the knowledge.
Prince On A Frog
Someone needs to tell these Russians that the frog actually transformed into a Prince. They seem to think that the Prince came riding in on the frog’s back to kiss the Princess.
Dream On Baby
The groom seems to be having rather troubled dreams by the look of the frown on his forehead. Perhaps he is regretting getting married and wants to relive his bachelor days.
Cow At The Wedding
It seems like they are having a lot of fun at this Russian wedding since they have a person dressed up as a cow. And as always, there is also alcohol in the picture.
The Trashed Husband
The bride seems to have no trouble picking up the groom as if he is a bag of trash. We just have to empathize with the man in the picture for the years he will be married to her.
We know that the groom is wearing makeup but it seems like the bride has choked him with all the force in the world until his face actually turned ashen white.
That’s His Prey
This is another piece of weird creativity that the Russians have come up with. This time around, the groom was an eagle who had snatched up his bride.
The Right Size
This man is all ready to take care of his new wife, even if it means holding her drink for her and feeding her.
Do Not Drop
This is yet another Russian bride who decided that it was time to throw her husband away like he was a piece of trash. We have to wonder why the photographer would suggest such ideas.
The Giant Eats His Food
The groom seems to have a case of bad breath since the bride is holding her hand in front of her face as if to avoid smelling the air he is breathing on her.
All That He Has
This groom has put everything that he has on show so that the bride does not have any surprises after the wedding.
One Plus Mini
This groom has gotten quite the sweet deal. In addition to a regular sized bride, he has also married her miniature version which he can carry everywhere.
Pile Of Trash
This picture is degrading to men all around the world. We have to wonder why he allowed the picture to come out this way.
Marrying The Witch
This groom seems unaware that the bride that he has just married is actually a witch. We can only wonder what their children will turn out to be…
This is a case of over-editing. They have put the color green everywhere, even in the sky.
An Interesting Picture
Are these two men dividing the wife like the baby in King Solomon’s story? If not, why do they both have a hold of each of her legs?
A Short Leg?
At first glance, it looks like there is something wrong with the groom’s right leg and that it is shorter than the other. However, it’s just an illusion.
This is why you should never have your wedding pictures edited by amateurs. They mess everything up and then you have to look at these pictures for the rest of your life.
This groom is trying to chain the bride up to prevent her from flying away. Why even bother since the chain is not secured to anything?
Under Her Foot
We know that the bride is going to keep the groom on a short leash throughout their marriage just by looking at this wedding picture.
A Scared Groom
By the expression on his face, it is clear that the groom did not want to be a part of this picture and that he was forced to pose like that.
The ship represents all the fun that the bride had during her single life. However, that ship has clearly sailed for her now.
The Perfect Landing
Someone had once told this guy that his dream girl is not going to just land in front of him. However, this wedding picture proved otherwise.
The Important Pet
This bride knows her priorities. She would rather have a picture taken with her cockatoo while her husband is edited into the picture and stuffed into a corner.
The Powers Unite
This couple decided to involve fruit into their wedding picture. We can only ask why?
This is another Russian couple who misunderstood the fairy tale. Although the shoe in Cinderella played a big part in the story, it wasn’t actually a giant shoe.
