Now that the Kardashian event of the season is behind us, we can all breathe a sigh of relief and return to life as normal. Until that next wedding invite shows up, that is!
When it comes to Halloween, the more outlandish the costume or the party, the better. But what about when it comes to weddings? People get a little crazy when they feel like their “big day” is going cookie cutter, so some will revert to insane tactics to make sure their wedding stands out among the rest.

And let’s not forgot about the famous Wedding Party entrance to Chris Brown’s Forever:
