So many women are seen as a “Bridezilla” – an absolute perfectionist about every aspect of a wedding, and willing to fight with anything (or anyone) who gets in her way.
Well, actress Audrey Moore had quite a different idea. Instead of wanting to keep all eyes on her, she went for a more offbeat dress code for her guests. She invited every single one of them to turn up also wearing their wedding dresses – and the photos are incredible.
Jesse and Audrey wrote on Reddit, “We thought it was sad that most women only get to wear their wedding dress once, so we invited all the women coming to our non-traditional wedding to wear their old wedding dresses again!”
When Jesse and Audrey got married, they shared the photos to Reddit and wrote about the unconventional way they celebrated tying the knot.
The results were stunning and here’s their story:
We thought it was sad that most women only get to wear their wedding dress once, so we invited all the women coming to our non-traditional wedding to wear their old wedding dresses again! My wife is the one sitting front and center – she designed her own dress and was inspired by Cinderella and Elsa.
In contrast, my groomsmen and I wore Tuxedo print hoodies, because honestly who wants to wear a tux?
Our moms were our flower girls.
We love movies and TV, so we set up a theater concessions “sugar bar” for our guests and played movie soundtracks and theme songs for our reception.
We had skee ball and arcade games for our guests young and old!
Of course we had to have The Simpsons arcade game since it was a staple of my childhood.
And some classic video games as well!
Once the ceremony was done, the whole wedding party put on costumes to join many of our guests who were already in costume! Some choice costumes included Duff Man, Spider-Pig, a mermaid, Spock, a burrito, and Max from Where the Wild Things Are just to name a few.

There were many more highlights including a French Fry bar, an awards ceremony (for things like best costume, best dog not in attendance, best mother of the groom, etc.), and 18 unique wedding cakes each decorated by our guests and wedding party at our rehearsal dinner. We threw the wedding we always wanted to go to, and we think it was a great success!
I think it’s safe to say it was a huge hit!
