Was Newlywed Russell Brand a Groomzilla?

We all know that Katy Perry and Russell Brand tied the knot this weekend at Ranthambor National Park in India—check out their "We did!" tweets if you don't believe us. While Katy's outfit changes may have stolen the show, Russell had some showstopping antics as well: riding in on an elephant, buying his bride a Bengal tiger (which will stay at the park), and hiring acrobats and jugglers to entertain guests.

Has there ever been a more wedding-obsessed groom than Russell Brand? We think not. Here, a look back at some of the best bridal quotes from Katy Perry's kookier half. You decide if he fit the mold of a "groomzilla" or if he was just overly enthusiastic.

On his bachelor party: "We're going to go white-water rafting and shoot arrows. We'll be like merry men. Perhaps we'll become outlaws, bandits, for a while."

On his "I do" dreams: "The vicar will start melting, and the people in the front row will turn into people from my school. And then everyone will only say the word potato."

On his fantasy ceremony: "Everyone's going to be topless. The first thing we're going to do is slaughter a swan. That's to the god Zeus."

On destination vows: "Of course it's a destination wedding. You can't do a physical wedding that takes place in your own brain! Actually, I just did one."
