Actual “shotgun weddings” refer to the guy being forced to marry the girl via her dad’s shotgun because she’s pregnant. They also happen quickly in order to try to hide the illegitimacy of the baby. So people can apply shotgun wedding to several things - forced marriage, quick marriage, or pregnant bride.

Thanks for the explanation, I always thought it was an angry father holding a shotgun to the boyfriend. Glad to know that it can mean a forced wedding--not just one due to a pregnant girlfriend.

It’s pretty much never used for just a forced wedding. It means you had to get married because the bride got pregnant and her dad is making you. Thankfully these days it’s usually a joke.
