Bride's bouquet brings down plane


news.bbc.co.uk

The traditional throwing of a bride's bouquet for luck ended in disaster at an Italian wedding when the flowers caused a plane to crash.

The bride and groom had hired a small plane to fly past and throw the bouquet to a line of women guests, Corriere della Sera reported.

However, the flowers were sucked into the plane's engine causing it to catch fire and explode.

Now that's what I call flower power.

Should we now be suspicious if someone with an Arabic accent makes a call to Interflora?

And what of the tradition of throwing the bouquet for luck? It was presumably a tried & tested formula up to now.

What's your advice for couples contemplating such dangerous activities? Are there implications for confetti?

OMG what a horrible thing to have happen and on your wedding day and it was something you though of. Wow if that isnt an omen for that marriage I dont know what it. I personally wouldnt do anything drastic like that when I get married. Keep it simple I say.

I agree entirely. Leave the bouquet at home. Just take daisies.

It should help keep insurance costs down.

Interesting.

I wonder if the photographer got pictures?

They will always remember this wedding day. I wonder what kind of superstitions there are when your bouquet brings down a plane?
