Bride's Elaborate Wedding Stunt Branded 'Awkward' and a 'Nightmare' Online

A bride's romantic wedding day stunt has left many on the internet open-mouthed, being branded "awkward" and a "nightmare."

Caila Quinn took to TikTok on June 1 to post footage of her nuptials, which included a musical surprise for both her guests and husband.

The video took place at her wedding in May in Sarasota, Florida. If you recognize the bride, it is because she was previously a contestant on The Bachelor back in 2017.

Quinn did not end up being chosen by Ben Higgins, the star of season 20, so the man standing at the altar alongside her is investment director Nick Burrello.

The surprise begins with the loved-up duo under a floral arch in front of an ocean view. Quinn looks stunning in a flowing white dress, while Burrello wears the traditional black-tie.

Rows of their guests are sat watching the ceremony when two performers, who were embedded in the crowd, burst into song.

They stand up and begin singing the words to "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" by Frankie Valli, and soon more performers join in.

By the chorus, even Quinn is singing along as the crowd claps to the beat.

The bride captioned her video, writing: "Surprised the groom & all of our guests with a flash mob #Broadway singing performance during our #weddingceremony ! #weddingceremonysurprise #bride."

The footage was shared on June 1, and has since received more than 595,800 views, and surpassed 50,200 likes.

Many people took to the comments section to share their opinions on the wedding surprise.

One TikTok user, Gen, wrote: "What in the Glee is this."

Another person, Mina Marlena, added: "This is so awkward I'm crying but gorgeous wedding."

Louise Judd remarked: "This is nice for you guys but is my actual worst nightmare."

Deeyyuuhh commented: "This is giving me and my cousins performing for my parents when we were 8."

Ratchet.reese typed: "I would've made them stop immediately."

Jordan Cotney stated: "Hiring someone to tackle and arrest anyone that would try this at my future wedding."

However, not everyone thought it was such a bad idea with Eggiami writing: "I know that this isn't everyone's cup of tea, but look how happy the couple is.

"That's the whole point of the weddings right?"

But one TikTok video of a wedding that sparked unanimous outrage was the clip of a groom checking his phone as his bride-to-be walked down the aisle.

Posted by Taylortoks on June 4, with the caption "husband of the year," the video has since been viewed more than 2.4 million times.

Newsweek have contacted Caila Quinn for comment.
