If you can’t remember your lines, look to the couple in front of you…

So my previous post was about a couple who married and remarried each other 97 times over the last 20 years….

I had to add this one —- hey, if you are ever on Jeopardy and the category “Wedding Trivia” or “Guinness World Records” come up, you know you are set, thanks to About a Bride! 🙂

It’s almost the beginning of a joke, but it’s real life. How many married couples can an officiant marry at once? Well, initially, the record for the largest vow renewal ceremony was on April 20th, 2008 where 338 couples were married in Barcelona, Spain. In fact, all 338 couples wore their original wedding attire! But with a little more research, I discovered that even that record was surpassed by double that same year, only a couple months before! In Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, there was a vow renewal ceremony for — get this — 624 couples!!!!! That’s over 1200 people just getting married — one has to wonder what the guest seating chart looked like!

This amount of brides beats the “chasing brides” scene in the movie, The Bachelor with Chris O’Donnell or the World’s Famous Bridal Event at Filene’s Basement.
