    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.)

  2. IGNOMINIA says:

    so far this is the only truly awkward photo I have seen here!

  3. Grossed Out says:

    OMG, I think this guy is my kids’ orthodontist!

  4. Rosie says:

    Firstly, which one is his wife?! Secondly, he looks like he’s pointing to his manhood!! What a horrendous picture…

  5. Jill says:

    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!

    very lucky

  8. Sandi says:

    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.

    • Kim says:

      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.

    It’s a big game of tag and he’s the safe zone!

  10. TBC says:

    Wait… I kind like the one who is barely touching him… almost like she’s handling a dirty baby wipe.

  11. Tim says:

    Hand Check!

  12. jojotheclown says:

    where the hell is that arm coming from around his elbow!? the angle doesn’t make sense!

  13. Uncuw Biww says:

    on the OTHER hand….

  14. TMPhil says:

    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!

  15. Lilli says:

    He’s kinda cute. I’d touch him, too.

    “Now, Everyone Touch the Groom.

    No sir, not you. You don’t have to touch yourself”

  18. beachcomber says:

    And on next week’s episode of “Big Love”…..

  19. sallyomalley says:

    gah! why do photographers even suggest this pose! it’s so bad. ahh….memories.

  20. Becky says:

    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!”

  21. Steph says:

    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?

    • Nicole says:

      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.

  22. andi in NC says:

    ok, where’s the shot of the bride with all the groomsmen touching her????

  23. Boppie says:

    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?”

  24. jessica says:

    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.

    • zed says:

      I totally agree!!! They think it’s cute and the people being photographed aren’t willing to say no.

      • greywlf says:

        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”…

  25. blu_canary says:

    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!

  27. durhay says:

    Lynn from the Real Housewives of the OC seems to be enjoying herself.

  28. El & Mo says:

    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…

  29. They really should have spent the ten bucks for napkins at the reception…

  30. They’re just touching his Blarney Stone for good luck… or getting lucky.

  31. Jeb says:

    Group honeymoon, dear?

  32. 0rovert says:

    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?

  33. DMF says:

    Is this one of those contests where the last one standing with a hand on him wins?

  34. Mel says:

    Never a good sign when you have to hold onto the groom, for fear he might run away! haha.

  35. gina beana says:

    people will just do whatever they are told to do! : )

  36. Brandi says:

    Haha! Who would think that was a good idea? He’s like “oh yeah, Im a stud”!

  37. Joey says:

    I really don’t like his left hand. :::shudder:::: Awkward INDEED.
