20 Awkward Engagement Photos That Are Unintentionally Hilarious

Marriage is all about the union of two families. When this couple got engaged, for instance, they felt naturally inclined to include their “children” Peter, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail in the celebratory photo. They clearly didn’t think the concept through to its unfortunately laughable conclusion, though – and neither did the following couples.

Take this picture, for example. We can only hope that this is as far as the whole shot-through-the-heart-with-an-arrow concept went. The consequences could be as messy as this photo is uncomfortable.

Well, the vows do state “for richer or poorer.” With any luck, though, this prospective groom will at least be able to afford a suit for the big day, even if he couldn’t stretch the budget to include clothes for the engagement photo.

Hopefully this couple’s expectations of their impending nuptials are more realistic than their fantasy-themed engagement photo. Even the horse looks embarrassed at such accidental hilarity.

Yeah, we get it; these two are clearly “potty” about each other. Or perhaps they were trying to say that their relationship was destined to go down the toilet? Ironically, the john is actually the best place for this photo.

This was perhaps meant to be a play on “tying the knot.” Unfortunately, the resulting photo looks more like this couple are about to hang themselves from the shame of the concept.

She has hooked and reeled in her fish, and this one is apparently for keeps. Rather awkwardly, though, the man looks a little like it’s more a case of deadliest catch.

Once a couple are engaged, it’s hopeful that this street signage would be appropriate. Less appropriate is the other connotation of the word “dumping,” which is expertly demonstrated by the groom-to-be here.

This is the result of a stylized engagement shoot going spectacularly wrong. Indeed, what’s more awkward than the dungeon-like setting is that this couple look as though they’re not even kidding.

What could possibly be more inelegant than posing at a parking meter to announce your engagement? Posing at two parking meters, of course. They almost look like… no, never mind.

Because nothing says “happily ever after” quite like cuddling on a tree stump. At least that’s what this future bride and groom apparently agreed with their photographer.

Most couples couldn’t be happier when they get engaged, but this bride seems to be the exception. In fact, if she wants the marriage to be a success she should probably think about losing the look of utter dread currently in her eyes.

The passionate Spider-Man kiss inspired many real world re-enactments. What no-one told the copycats is that, outside of Hollywood, it just kinda looks like some douche hanging upside down.

When this guy popped the question, the couple’s natural response was to effortlessly pop a precarious yoga pose. Other people’s natural response to the concept is to double over with laughter.

What’s the message here? Is this couple’s relationship heading straight for the garbage? Whatever. That’s exactly where this photo needs to be as soon as they find a new photographer.

This couple thought it would be hilarious to stage their engagement photos in an abandoned space with inappropriate graffiti adorning the wall. Sadly, though, many people are probably laughing at them, not with them.

It’s cute that this groom-to-be is jumping for joy about his engagement. Well, it’s either that or he huffed a canister of helium for a “floating-on-air” feeling.
