“You may now kiss the bride.” “No thanks.”
Blog Guy, I’m planning a June wedding and I’d like it to have a sophisticated feel. Are there any foreign wedding customs we might want to use?
Well, in Romania the brides all go sit out on the curb and smoke a butt together on the big day.
Ewwww. Why do they do that?
I don’t know for sure, but I think it’s because more and more churches in Romania are becoming no-smoking.
Also, I believe there were some unpleasant accidents when brides tried smoking during the ceremony while they were veiled.
I think this is more of your crap. How do you know they’re sitting on a curb?
You’ve got me there. They could just be two very short brides. Yeah, that’s it. Watch for my upcoming Wikipedia piece, “The two-foot-tall Women of Romania.”
That’s better. I have to keep you honest.
