* ''Lightnovel/FullMetalPanic'''s Melissa Mao tells a story about her dealing with an unwanted ArrangedMarriage by dumping the groom at the altar and joining the Marines. In her wedding dress. For added fun it's mentioned that the guys at the recruiting station were a little leery of inducting a girl in a wedding dress, until she mentioned that her father (who'd arranged the marriage) was a colonel in the Air Force. After they heard that, [[InterserviceRivalry they signed her right up just to spite him]].

* In ''Anime/YesPrecure5'', Komachi ''wants'' to almost marry someone she doesn't really love, then become a RunawayBride via a SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace type situation, because it'd be really dramatic if that happened. Seriously.

* Played with for extremely dark comedy on ''PeepShow''; marrying someone he didn't love (but was too embarrassed to break up with), Mark ends up hiding in the vestry of the church until he's discovered, whereupon he (very very very) reluctantly goes through with the wedding (to the extent that he looks around hopefully at the SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace moment and -- along with Sophie, his bride -- bursts into tears when the vows are read. The wedding car doesn't even make it out of the church grounds before Sophie abandons Mark, screaming about how "horrible" he is. The next season sees much discussion (and passionate defense on Mark's part) about whether what he did technically constitutes a "jilting" or not, since he ended up marrying her anyway.

* An episode of ''Series/TheATeam'' takes this a step farther by having the eponymous team show up to rescue a bride from being coerced into marrying the VillainOfTheWeek. Their escape plan involves having Murdock walk down the aisle disguised as the bride; thus resulting in MURDOCK becoming a runaway bride himself. Murdock later writes the villain a letter of apology for leaving him at the altar.

* Music/KatyPerry's "Hot and Cold" has the groom getting cold feet and attempted to run away from the wedding, only to have Katy relentlessly chase after him. It turned out to be an ImagineSpot though, and the video ends with the wedding proceeding normally.

* TaylorSwift's "Speak Now", while an example of SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace, has the groom ditching the bride and running away with the narrator. This is supposed to be a ''happy ending''.

* Done on an episode of ''Series/FamilyMatters'' when a friend of Steve's is getting married. As the bride walks down the aisle, she encounters an ex, who happens to be the ceremony's piano player. He invites her to grab some coffee, and she happily accepts. Despite this being a comedy, for once, it's portrayed as an incredibly cruel and selfish thing for her to do--her ditched would-be groom tries to throw himself off the roof of the church afterwards. Fortunately, the cop sent to talk him down happens to be an ex of his.
