Victor is suffering from an arranged marriage. His family, the Van Dorts, are wealthy but common and have decided to marry their son off to Victoria Everglot, whose family are aristocrats but currently dirt poor. The Van Dorts get title and respectability and the Everglots get a means to ease their financial woes. The painfully shy Victor, who has never met his prospective bride before, just gets more and more nervous.
Still, much to their surprise, Victor and Victoria find that they love each other upon meeting. At the rehersal dinner though, Victor is too nervous to get through his marriage vows and flees into the woods to practice. In his efforts to get his vows right for Victoria, he accidently marries himself off to the Corpse Bride.
