THE wedding of Bachelor stars Irena Srbinovska and Locky Gilbert nearly ended in a brawl as women scrapped for the bride's bouquet.
Shocking footage from the happy couple's wedding reception shows a swarm of female guests – and some fellow reality TV personalities – fighting tooth and nail in the hopes of getting down the aisle next.
The newlyweds, both 32, got hitched at a lavish venue in Melbourne, Australia, on Friday before all hell broke loose at their bash later on.
In line with tradition, Irena rounded up all the ladies to toss her stunning bouquet into the crowd.
An eager line of dolled-up guests had formed behind her, but even this Bachelor contestant wasn't expecting what some women will do to get a ring on their finger.
Bridesmaids Stephanie Lynch and Laura O'Loughlin, who both fought for Jimmy Nicholson's roses on The Bachelor in 2021, boldly charged forward in the hopes of catching the white bouquet.

The pair can be seen fiercely lunging at each other as they try to snatch the posy, while its petals scatter across the floor.
Another former Bachelor contestant who tried to bag Locky in 2020, Bella Colwell, also tries to lay claim to the bouquet.
But she amusingly tumbles straight over Laura and onto the dance floor after her enthusiasm backfired.
The brunette manages to keep a grip on the bouquet despite the chaos, until Stephanie again grapples with her in an attempt to swipe it.

She is then forced to fight for her modesty as well as the flowers when her feverish rival grabs at her dress and almost tears it.
Laura narrowly managed to avoid a wardrobe malfunction and eventually declared victory over her female guests.
To add to the comedy value of the clip, Beyonce's hit 'Single Ladies' is hilariously blaring in the background throughout.
Footage of the rowdy reception was filmed by fellow bridesmaid Alisha Aitken-Radburn, who uploaded the clip to Instagram.
She captioned the video: "The most dramatic bouquet toss in Bachelor history."
The clip sparked a debate in the comment section, with the majority of social media users stunned at the women's behaviour.
However, others concentrated on the amusingness of the scuffle.
One wrote: "One bouquet, few too many champers and a whole lotta screaming. Iconic vid."
Another said: "Someone really wants to get married."
A third commented: "How embarrassing."
A fourth wrote: "It gets funnier each time you watch it."
And a fifth chimed in: "No wonder they're single… desperate is not a vibe."
Even former Bachelor star turned relationship guru Belinda 'Love' Rygier weighed in on the tussle for the bouquet.
