* 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!"

* ''{{Sub-Mariner}}'' #36 (1970s): Llyra tricks the Sub-Mariner into marrying her instead of Dorma, who's been kidnapped. It turns out that Atlantean marriage laws let you use a substitute at your wedding—he is considered to have married Dorma anyway. The official had put Dorma's name down on the wedding document, which is what made Llyra just a stand-in.

* In NorseMythology, the giant Thrymr steals Mjollnir in order to demand Freya as his bride; after Freya refuses, Loki comes up with the cunning plan to dress Thor in women's clothing and a veil. It works, albeit with some fast talking from Loki as Bridesmaid. The giants hand the "bride" Mjollnir, and Thor throws off his veil and kills them all.

* MarcusDidiusFalco pulls this to stop a forced marriage involving his LoveInterest Helena Justina. The villain says he can just get the marriage annulled, whereupon Marcus grins and points out that he won't live long enough to do so (as he's bleeding from a fatal wound and Marcus is preventing him from getting help).
* TheRedTent has a variation - Leah stands in for her sister Rachel on her wedding day because Rachel is young and afraid of the whole sex-and-babies obligation. The groom is well aware of the switch, but pretends not to be because he is equally attracted to Leah.

* PlayedForLaughs during a montage in the fourth ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' installment, in which the eponymous ogre dresses as a veiled bride at a man's wedding just to freak him out.
* ''TheSwanPrincess'' has Derek proclaim a vow of everlasting love to Odette, because those are the terms that will break Odette's [[BalefulPolymorph swan curse]]. However, the Odette that Derek proposes to is really Rothbart's minion in disguise, meaning that since Derek swore his love to another, the real Odette would die.
