* In ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'', Gren [[ArrangedMarriage has been promised by her parents]] to the Hobgoblin War Minister, but by the time he wants to wed her, Gren has been disowned by her family and moved in with her boyfriend. Her parents offer her younger sister Jalla instead and the Minister accepts. However, since Jalla is absolutely NOT okay with that, being in love with someone else, she tracks down her sister and appeals to her conscience to do her duty. So when on the wedding day armor and helmet are removed from the bride (Hobgoblin traditions), both the Minister and the girls' parents are surprised that it ''is'' Gren after all.

** The retelling of this story in ''TheRedTent'' suggests that this was a deliberate Bride and Switch on the part of the two daughters.
*** Literature/TheTalmud, IIRC, says that Rachel suspected Laban might try this and arranged for her and Jacob to give each other subtle cues at the altar so he would know whom he was really marrying. However, right before the wedding Rachel realized that Leah would be humiliated if Jacob called the wedding off and revealed the signs to her.
*** At least one straight-to-video live-action series drew heavily from both sources in portraying the patriarchs; for this story, it had Leah imitating a certain tongue-clicking noise Rachel and Jacob had regularly used as a means of sounding each other out in the dark.

* There's a double example in ''Theatre/TheMerryWivesOfWindsor'': Master and Mistress Page disagree on which man their daughter Anne should marry, so they both make arrangements with their preferred candidates to elope with her -- only to find out that Anne and her preferred suitor Fenton have pulled this off ''twice'' and the other two have accidentally married boys.

* On ''The A-Team'', the team is hired to get the bride out of the shotgun wedding she's being forced into. To get the bride out, they put Murdock in her wedding dress. During the ceremony, when asked, "Do you take this man ...", he pulls back the veil and says, "I didn't go through all this just to see how I'd look in white!"
