Get Me to the Church on Time, or We Pay a Fine!

Brazil Bride

I think we have all worked with people who through every fault of their own would be late for their own funerals. Well in Brazil there is a custom that has gotten way out of hand. It seems in Brazil it is tradition for the Bride to be a few minutes late for her wedding. I guess it’s a good luck thing. Well as usual some people have taken the whole tradition and started screwing things up for everybody else. One priest says NO MORE, if you’re going to be late, you’re going to pay!

Apparently, Priest Roberto Carrara at the Nossa Senhora de Lourdes Cathedral is tired of tardy brides disrupting scheduled masses and other ceremonies so his church has started a deposit requirement.

I am sure there are some of us who might wish the person that showed up at the altar that day was someone else, but that’s a story for a different time.
