Redneck Wedding....

It Might Be a Redneck Wedding...

In spring we feel young, alive. Thoughts just naturally seem to turn to romance and marriage. We might even receive an invitation to a wedding. Here in the South, we have wedding ceremonies too, just like everywhere else. Well, maybe not exactly like everyone else. Some of our weddings might be just a tad different, but probably not enough you would even notice the difference unless you are watching.

  • It might be a redneck wedding...

  • If the bride wears a crop top so her tattoo will show

  • If the bride’s hair is bigger than her veil

  • If the wedding is delayed because the groom’s truck wouldn’t start
