These 22 Wedding Fails Are Pretty Much The Worst

Some people say that your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. It turns out, the "Big Day" falls short of expectations for many couples.

We were reminded of this once again on Wednesday when Jimmy Fallon shared a wedding disaster he witnessed firsthand using the hashtag #weddingfail and got the topic trending on Twitter.

At friend's wedding they announced bridal party in a dramatic cloud of smoke & my mom wandered through looking for a bathroom. #WeddingFail
