It’s no surprise that many celebrities go all out for their weddings. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are a good example of this as their wedding reception in 2000 featured four bands, fireworks and 50,000 flowers, just to start. Per People, the whole thing could have cost $1 million. Christina Aguilera was another famous person who had an expensive wedding, which reportedly cost $2 million.

But no matter how expensive or fancy celebrity weddings are, some things are bound to go wrong, just like anyone else’s big day. The thing is, some wedding mistakes can be hidden from guests, as well as from the media. For example, a groom suddenly forgetting where he put his bride-to-be’s wedding ring can be masked if he doesn’t show panic. Other errors, however, are more difficult to keep secret. These bloopers live years after the ceremony.

Read on for the most awkward celebrity wedding moments of all time, some being on the cute and harmless side of things and others a bit more serious.

Blake Lively had a wedding dress accident

For many couples, the wedding day can be a big blur. This may be because the whole event is so filled with emotion that it’s hard to mentally document things. Moreover, guests arrive from all over, and once they arrive, the couple must play the role of host while trying to enjoy their great time together. Then there’s the reception, which could snatch the last bit of energy the bride and groom have left. But thanks to photos and videos, they can relive their nuptials as much as they want.

But Blake Lively has something else to stir up her wedding day memories after tying the knot with Ryan Reynolds in 2012: a burn mark on her wedding dress. Her dress caught fire at some point during the celebration. “Florence Welch was singing at the reception, and they brought out these sparklers, and I watch her sing,” Lively told Vogue in 2014. “I look down and my wedding dress has a big burn mark from the one of the sparklers. Just in front of ! And it was so heartbreaking for me. But the ‘Gossip Girl’ alum says the burn mark eventually became her favorite part of the dress. The mental shift came after Reynolds said she would always remember that part of her wedding day,

Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail faced a fight

So how’s that for an awkward wedding moment? A fight broke out at Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail’s nuptials in 2017. But there wasn’t an uninvited ex breaking in. Nor was there a rowdy guest ready to fight after he shot down one too many at reception. The fight was actually between two three-year-old bridesmaids before the vows were taken.

“It was during their nap, so one of the girls was pretty grumpy and didn’t feel it at all…and the other girl was one hell of a diva about it – she was definitely having her moment,” Rossum recalled during her visit to “The Late Late Show with James Corden” in 2017. “And then when the grumpy, diapered girl noticed the diva was getting a lot of attention, she ran down the aisle and started tossing her petals very aggressively, like, to the other girl. Basically like a female wrestling match broke out. Baskets were thrown in the process.

But later a thoughtful rabbi shed light on the physical confrontation, and we can safely say there are no reports of any other fights occurring that day.

Maybe Jessica Simpson was just nervous

Jessica Simpson is known for being part of the ’90s pop explosion with Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys. She’s also known for mistaking chicken for tuna, as she did on “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica,” her reality show with then-husband Nick Lachey. But it wasn’t the only mistake made by Simpson that made headlines. She also made a major mistake when she married former NFL player Eric Johnson in 2014.

A ! A source revealed that Johnson choked on his vows, and Simpson said the wrong name – speaking his own instead of her own when addressing Johnson. Still, the awkward moment didn’t take away the beauty of the day, according to what the couple told People. In a statement, Simpson and Johnson said they were completely overjoyed after committing to each other in front of their three children and loved ones.

And further proof that the flub didn’t ruin the wedding came in 2021 on the couple’s seventh wedding anniversary. That day, Johnson shared their wedding photos, along with a touching Instagram post. “Jessica, I love you. 7 years of marriage and you still make me laugh as much as the first day,” he wrote. “I had fun yesterday celebrating us. Our children bring us so much joy and they couldn’t be luckier to have such a powerful, unique and beautiful mom. I love you baby !!! “Awwwwww, right?

Mark Ballas and BC Jean had to deal with Freddie Mercury

You could say that the music is just as important to a wedding as the bride’s dress, the type of food the guests will snack on, and the type of cake they will eat afterwards. However, for “Dancing with the Stars” Mark Ballas, who is not just a dancer but a singer-songwriter, music was probably even more important when he said his I-dos to singer and actor BC Jean. . The couple tied the knot in 2016 in Malibu, Calif., and had a musical mishap when Jean walked down the aisle with the wrong song.

“Something can go wrong, and you just have to get out there and enjoy the day,” Ballas told ET in 2017, but the DJ played the real version. For many people, the mistake could have ruined the whole marriage, but that wasn’t the case for Ballas. His former pal and “Dancing with the Stars” witness Derek Hough reminded Ballas to go with the flow on his special day.

So, in conclusion, considering all the other things that could go wrong during a wedding, a bride walking down the aisle to a cool song might not sound so bad. Even if it meant hearing the soaring voice of Freddie Mercury instead of the string arrangement the couple wanted.

Hilary Duff had something missing from her smile

Hilary Duff speaks into a microphone

When Hilary Duff stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2010 and talked about her marriage to retired NHL player Mike Comrie, she said everything went perfectly except for one thing. Hours before the wedding, Duff lost her tooth, and having a toothless smile in her wedding photos probably wasn’t the look she was going for.

“A tooth fell out of my hand. Thank god I didn’t swallow it. Not good for a bride on the wedding day,” Duff told DeGeneres. “I bit into a bagel, sitting on my bed with my mom and my sister and they were like, ‘You’re an idiot, you didn’t. Go on ! From there, Duff explained that she cried, laughed, and then really turned on the aqueduct. But luckily, the incident happened about three hours before the actor got ready, and his wedding planner’s brother-in-law’s best friend, who is a dentist, saved the day.

But the marriage itself couldn’t be saved as Duff and Comrie – who have a son named Luca – finalized their divorce in 2016. The former ‘Lizzie McGuire’ star went on to marry singer Matthew Koma in 2019 , and they have two daughters. Luckily for Duff, she was able to keep all of her teeth in the hours leading up to her marriage to Koma.

Kim Kardashian and Ye had a seat crisis

Despite the polarizing nature of Kanye West (now known as “Ye”), he and his ex-wife Kim Kardashian are known to be stylish people, often raising eyebrows with their designer duds. So it’s no surprise that instead of the former couple using place cards for their 2014 wedding reception in Italy to indicate seating, they hired a group of workers to engrave the names of the guests on marble tables.

But according to Page Six, the spelling of the people’s names was sloppy. Also, some of the guests showed up at reception with people who weren’t invited, which only added another level of chaos to the seating arrangement. Now imagine the surroundings of this legendary dinner: “Four days before the wedding, they ordered 30 life-size nudes in black Carrara marble. The marble workers worked all night to cut enough blocks, but 10 of them collapsed. , another 10 were too damaged in transit to be extinguished, and of the remaining 10, four were missing their heads,” Page Six claimed. What remained of the statues surrounded the dining room.

The reception still went smoothly, despite the fiasco of the marble table, a gold toilet tower, and missing nudes. The same cannot be said for Kardashian and West’s marriage, as Kardashian filed for divorce in 2021. The divorce was finalized in late 2022.

Audrina Patridge revealed herself

Could there be a more stressful phrase for a bride than a “wedding day wardrobe malfunction?” Audrina Patridge would know because she had dysfunction when she married Corey Bohan in Hawaii in 2016. Now, we’re not talking about Janet Jackson-level dysfunction here, but it seemed pretty serious, given that it’s happened when Patridge walked down the aisle with her dad.

“I was fighting back tears as we got closer to Corey, but as it was happening I could feel my train and veil catching on the wooden posts that lined the aisle causing my head to pull in back,” “The Hills” star wrote on her now-defunct blog (via People). “I kept going with a smile on my face until it was gone!!! I kept walking until very generous friends rushed up behind me to put it back on my head. LOL – sometimes you have to roll with the punches! »

Hey, that’s pretty much the same advice Derek Hough gave Mark Ballas when BC Jean walked down the aisle on the wrong song. From what it seems, Ballas and Patridge had the right frame of mind on their respective wedding day. Experts also tell couples not to worry when plans go awry.

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden’s awkward moment was kinda cute

 Before Good Charlotte singer Benji Madden exchanged wedding vows with Cameron Diaz in 2015, he fell to his knees. Of course, getting off in this way is usually done well before the ceremony, during the proposal, so the act would likely seem odd to wedding guests. Madden wasn’t romantically singing one of his songs while kneeling either, so what was he doing?

To answer that question, one would have to look no further than his then five-year-old nephew Sparrow Madden, son of his brother Joel Madden and Nicole Richie. Sparrow was the ring bearer and accidentally dropped the ring. The cute little mishap then turned Benji and Joel into hands-and-knees archaeologists looking for the damn thing, according to the Daily Mail.

Apparently everyone laughed at the ring falling to the floor, but the moment didn’t seem to spoil the ceremony, which was held at Diaz’s home in Beverly Hills. Some of the guests, according to Us Weekly, included Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lionel Richie, who took to the piano for “Easy.” Drew Barrymore was one of Diaz’s bridesmaids, returning a favor since Diaz was also a bridesmaid at her wedding, per PopSugar.
