When you go camping overnight in freezing temps so you can get the wedding date you want...at a public park.
Surely, this has to be the bride's idea. The groom goes along because it's either:
A) camping! -or-
B) the girlfriend has threatened to cut him off from visiting her pink taco stand
I see this story every year, and every year I think they are retarded. Even worse, these couples will go on to marry, and produce retarded children who will one day camp overnight for a wedding date in a public park.
Yes, the park is pretty. But not worth getting frostbite over.
I still stand by my preference for eloping.
