Bride’s Joke Breaks Off Austrian Wedding

VIENNA, Austria — Wedding jokes aren’t always funny. When a bride in Austria jokingly answered “no” instead of “yes” when asked if she wanted to marry her husband-to-be, the official performing the civil wedding promptly broke off the ceremony.

Not even the bride’s sobs could reverse the decision and the couple had to wait two and a half months before they could give it another — successful — try, the Austrian newspaper Oberoesterreichischen Nachrichten reported Friday.

Officials at the registry office in the city of Steyr where the mishap occurred declined to comment directly but noted the incident was highly unusual, according to the newspaper.

  1. That has to be one of the funniest things I’ve read in ages. I have often joked with my girlfriend that I would say “no” as a joke when we get married.

    I’ll not be risking it now though. She’d never foregive me ;-)
