You may be married to him, but that doesn’t mean you can’t share.

In a friend’s parents’ wedding album from the late 50s there’s a staged shot of the groom with a bridesmaid on his lap, and the bride coming at him with a rolling pin. I swear! I should have her send that photo in to this site. (Her parents are both passed away now.)
so far this is the only truly awkward photo I have seen here!
OMG, I think this guy is my kids’ orthodontist!
Firstly, which one is his wife?! Secondly, he looks like he’s pointing to his manhood!! What a horrendous picture…
If you think this is bad, you should see the version of this photo that was taken at my sister’s wedding. All the bridesmaids leaned in to KISS the groom.
I love that the two on the right act like he is an empty banana peel they are throwing in the trash…and the one on the left just goes right for the thigh with a big grin. KLASSY.
Nothing worse than a wedding photographer with a sense of humor. I think a good way to go shopping for a wedding photographer. Ask them if they do this photo. If they do….keep shopping!
ok I have stared and stared but the arm intertwined in his elbow is literally not attached to any of these girls. Is there a short person hiding behind the girl in front??? Was this photoshopped because that arm is outta nowhere.
I think the flower girl has been shopped out, except for her hand and arm. Either somebody decided having a six year old in the picture was in poor taste (it’s pure class, otherwise) or she was crying/making a face.
i think it’s the left arm of the woman right behind him
It’s a big game of tag and he’s the safe zone!
Wait… I kind like the one who is barely touching him… almost like she’s handling a dirty baby wipe.
where the hell is that arm coming from around his elbow!? the angle doesn’t make sense!
on the OTHER hand….
I’m curious where the 3rd one from the left’s hand is on him.
From his expression, she may just be cupping his glutes!
Perhaps she got confused and ended up “touching” the bride.
He’s kinda cute. I’d touch him, too.
“That’s right ladies, the only thing between you and me is this thin layer of gabardine”
“Now, Everyone Touch the Groom.
No sir, not you. You don’t have to touch yourself”
OMG love your comment! Best so far
And on next week’s episode of “Big Love”…..
I’m glad I’m not the only one to think that!
gah! why do photographers even suggest this pose! it’s so bad. ahh….memories.
I particularly love the woman in the bottom left with waaaaay more hand on him than the others. It’s almost like she’s saying, “THIS IS IT!! My last chance to touch him since I have permission!”
Some photographers think they’re so cute. *chuckles and rolls eyes* If you’re going to do a group pic, don’t make it painful for everyone involved, right?
Photographers gotta have some fun, too. You know they all get together at conventions and compete to see who could get people to do the stupidest stuff.
ok, where’s the shot of the bride with all the groomsmen touching her????
I just fell over laughing!!!!!!!!! GOOD ONE!!!
Is the bride even in this picture? I think the one in the lighter dress, top right, is the maid/matron of honor…because I can’t see the bride being too comfortable with the format of this picture. Especially when she sees it for the first time AFTER the wedding and honeymoon are long over…”So, DEAR, (with gritted teeth), care to explain this?”
even the women aren’t too sure about the idea, they all look akward too.
why do photographers waste time with these pics, it is not like you are going to frame it. i would rather have more pics with my husband, or other more meaningful pictures.
I totally agree!!! They think it’s cute and the people being photographed aren’t willing to say no.
The one on the right and middle looks very uncomfortable. Like, “Do I really have to touch this guy? I’ll just pinch the fabric of his jacket with my thumb and forefinger so as to not make actual physical contact”…
It’s really a good thing I’m not a professional photographer. Because if you’re gonna make something look staged and awkward, don’t just do it part of the way. I’d have them all touching his forehead or something. It’s not like it would make the picture worse!
“Why do feel like the only tree in a kennel?”
Lynn from the Real Housewives of the OC seems to be enjoying herself.
Wow. You’re right, she looks a lot like her. So sad that I know that.
What they don’t tell us is that soon after, the jealous bride kicked everyon’e butt for touching her man. We can only speculate over what happened to the groom…
Best. Prom. Ever.
They really should have spent the ten bucks for napkins at the reception…
You made me laugh!
They’re just touching his Blarney Stone for good luck… or getting lucky.
HA! HA! That’s hilarious!!
Don’t you mean his blarney stoneS? Heh-heh.
Group honeymoon, dear?
Their hands are awkward for sure, but what about his left hand? What a strange and awkward positioning. Is he trying to point at his crotch?
Is this one of those contests where the last one standing with a hand on him wins?
Nope, it’s a contest for “Maid-of-On-’im”
I love ‘maid of on ‘im’ lol…too funny!
Never a good sign when you have to hold onto the groom, for fear he might run away! haha.
people will just do whatever they are told to do! : )
Haha! Who would think that was a good idea? He’s like “oh yeah, Im a stud”!
I’m guessing he’s a doctor.
Doctor of Love
Step right up, ladies! There’s plenty to go around!
I really don’t like his left hand. :::shudder:::: Awkward INDEED.
Holy crap! I didn’t notice until I read your comment. Oh my….awkward.
me either!! lol
Geez, it was good enough for Michael Jackson.
…this guy ain’ no Michael Jackson.
