* Subverted on ''Series/TheOffice''. While Jim and Pam do get married in front of all of their friends, it turns out they sneaked off and eloped before, anticipating that the gang might do something stupid.

A WeddingDay trope, focusing on the bride who abandons her groom at the altar, either to be with her new flame or to celebrate her independence. This often occurs at the climax of the movie, and is frequently treated as being a [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop heartwarming and positive affirmation]] of the power of True Love/Independent Women for the would-be bride. The fact that it's also a humiliating, heartbreaking, psychologically-scarring betrayal for the would-be groom tends to be glossed over. Often occurs after the priest has said, "SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace."

A WeddingDay trope, focusing on the bride who abandons her groom at the altar, either to be with her new flame or to flame, celebrate her independence. independence, or she has cold feet for some story-related reason. This often occurs at the climax of the movie, and is frequently (though not always) treated as being a [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop heartwarming and positive affirmation]] of the power of True Love/Independent Women for the would-be bride. The fact that it's also a humiliating, heartbreaking, psychologically-scarring betrayal for the would-be groom tends to be glossed over. Often occurs after the priest has said, "SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace."



This trope could be the result of societal expectations. Men are expected to have cold feet before a wedding, stereotypically speaking. It's supposed to be more shocking when it's the woman who backs out to be free and single, or run away with another man. Since this offers zero comfort to the poor schlub who just got dumped in front of his family and friends on ''his'' big day, writers are careful [[DisposableFiance not to develop the would-be groom too much]]--or they flat-out make him the villain--to keep audiences from sympathizing with him and calling her out on her recklessness.

* Empath assumes that this is what happened to Smurfette at his wedding day in the ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' story "Empath's Wedding" when he enters her house and sees that his hat (which is what she's supposed to wear to signify who she's marrying) lying on the floor, until Smurfette's companion and wedding guest Blue Eyes points out that she's been magically transported by someone...and Empath correctly assumes that it's Chlorhydris, who's getting even for her ruined wedding night (which in the cartoon series was thought to be the case of a Runaway Groom) by ruining Empath's wedding.
