From the bridal party to event guests, when it comes to Wedding Season memes, it turns out there’s a little something for everyone.

Memes For the Happy Couple

More often than not, “wedding” is synonymous with “bride”.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that there are several meme accounts on Reddit and Instagram, dedicated solely to bridal moments.

However, let’s not forget about the groom. Several meme-makers have credited the “man of the hour” as the wedding’s unsung hero…

The Wedding Guest Woes

While many memes exemplify the joys of wedding planning from the bride and groom’s point of view, there are just as many, if not more, memes conveying the woes, worries, and straight-up disinterest associated with attending the celebratory occasion.

With the exception of this excited Twitter user…

It seems like the majority of wedding guests have a lot of complaints.

From the ZOMG announcements….

And finally, the outrageous costs associated with weddings.

Outrageous doesn’t even begin to cover it, okuuurr? An article from Bankrate estimated that the average wedding guest spends between $400 and $800 per wedding.

In addition to gifts for the OTP and some stylish new kicks, travel accommodations account for a large portion of wedding expenses.

Another series of memes drag the amount of weddings people generally attend during wedding season, sometimes more than one per weekend.

All the Single Ladies:

Perhaps the most hilarious and relatable Wedding Season related memes are those that come from single party-goers. These memes usually self-roast wedding attendees who aren’t boo’d up.

Despite the bitter complaints, most Wedding Season memes are clearly made in good jest. In fact, several memes laud the pleasures of attending a wedding, including good food…
