Wedding planners, take note.

Forget taking the centerpiece home, I want the bride!

Taken from the current issue of The Week:

An Indian man turned up so drunk for his own wedding that the bride married his younger brother instead. Not only was the original groom intoxicated, said local police officer Manho Singh, he had "misbehaved with guests," prompting the bride's family to chase him away and offer their teenage daughter to the groom's more sober younger brother, who immediately accepted. The original groom has since apologized, said Singh, "but has been crying that the word will spread and he will never get a bride again."

I dunno about boring. I mean, musical grooms is a hell of a lot better wedding game than musical chairs or the electric slide!

I think they need to have "make the bride scream out your name" as a wedding game.

That's a little creepy... Smacks of arranged marriage to me.

Did you see my fish post from a few days ago? It made me think of you and your fishies.

most marriages in the higher castes in India are arranged.

hahah. I guess in the world of arranged marriages it's not such a big deal to suddenly switch one of the participants. it sounds hilarious though.
